“It is our hope and prayer that these lessons will be used to ignite within you a passion for the triune God whom the Puritans delighted in proclaiming.”  —Joel Beeke and Nicholas Thompson

 

Each chapter focuses on a particular lesson and is divided into five sections:

  1. Meditate – Here you will find a Puritan quotation along with a pertinent passage of Scripture for meditation. Take a few minutes to prayerfully ponder the passage in this section and record any thoughts or applications that come to mind.
  2. Learn – This section contains material on the subject covered in the video lesson. Some of this will be review from the lesson, but will also contain supplementary material to further whet your appetite for these rich themes.
  3. Reflect – We have provided questions here for personal reflection and examination. This section is intended to help you digest the lesson material and apply it to your soul and life. We are after what the Puritans called “experiential religion.”
  4. Discuss – Next are questions for group discussion, though they can also be used for personal study. This section aims to be less soul searching and more theological and practical, helping you think through the lesson material in its application to the church today.
  5. Read – In this final section you will find a brief bibliography with some of the most helpful primary and secondary sources to pursue for further study. The goal of these lessons is not to be ends in themselves, but means to get you to read the Puritans for yourself, if you are not doing so already.

May these lessons will be used to ignite within you a passion for the triune God whom the Puritans delighted in proclaiming.

Media Gratiae is an independent nonprofit (501c3) multimedia ministry based out of New Albany, Mississippi. Our desire is to produce film, print, and other media for the glory of Christ and for the good of His Church.

Media Gratiae (pronounced "GRAH - tee - ā") is Latin for "the Means of Grace."

Fallen man receives all the blessings of salvation out of the eternal fountain of the grace of God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ and through the operation of the Holy Spirit. While the Spirit can and does in some respects operate immediately on the soul of the sinner, He has seen fit to bind Himself largely to the use of certain means in the communication of divine grace. " (L. Berkhof)

In other words, Christ has fully accomplished the redemption that the Father planned, and now the Spirit is applying that grace in time to the lives of God’s people all around the world. God has appointed certain “means” to serve as the channels through which the Spirit applies that grace. The scope of the work Media Gratiae produces is meant to give aid to the church here and abroad in its task of fulfilling the Great Commission by the use of those means.

We believe that the chief means of grace is God’s word. It alone has the promise of being the power of God unto salvation (Rom. 1:16; 1 Cor. 1:16). Paul tells us that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. In doing so, he elevates the preached word of God to the foreground as the means by which God’s own voice is heard by sinners (Rom. 10:13-17). Paul's determination to preach Christ and Him crucified is understood in light of the fact that it is the voice of our Savior that brings dead men out of their tombs (John 5:25).

In Acts 2 we see that the early church not only gave themselves to the apostles' teaching and prayer, but also to fellowship with one another. In addition to the crucial fellowship we experience by being committed to a local body of believers, we can also experience something of "the communion of the saints" by making use of Christian Biography. In this way we can be helped by the example of those who have followed our Lord before us, and follow Paul's admonition to keep our eyes on those who walk according to the example we have in him.

Two lines from a hymn by John Berridge—one a statement, the other an earnest prayer—sum up the mission and hope of Media Gratiae:

The means of grace are in my hand,
The blessing is at God’s command
Who must the work fulfill;
And though I read, and watch and pray,
Yet here the Lord directs my way
And worketh all things still.

Prepare my tongue to pray and praise,
To speak of providential ways,
And heavenly truth unfold;
To strengthen well a feeble soul,
Correct the Wanton, rouse the dull,
And silence sinners bold.
