SEBTS Chapel - Lloyd Elder April 17, 1984

  • Lloyd Elder was the President of the Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. The service begins with organ music (00:00-02:17). President Randall Lolley delivers the Scripture reading from Matthew 6, and he gives a word of prayer (02:18-03:48). Lloyd Elder is introduced as the chapel speaker (03:49-06:42). The choir sings the anthem (06:43-10:18). Elder begins his sermon by giving a word of appreciation to the leaders of Southeastern for the invitation to speak, and he reads Matthew 7:24-27 to set up the theme for his message, “Foundations for Ministry” (10:19-14:15). Elder gives five foundations that those in ministry are supposed to live out, and they are to hear the words of Jesus Christ, be obedient to the words of Jesus Christ, build our lives wisely on the solid rock of Jesus Christ and his word, realistically face the hardships of life, and let Christ build character (14:16-41:24). Elder ends the service with a word of prayer (41:25-42:16).
