If you have your Bibles with you or perhaps one there in the pew pockets in front of you, turn with me if you would now, to Psalm 92.  Psalm 92.  You can find it there on page 498 in your pew Bible.  As you’re turning there, allow me to say what an honor it is to stand before you and open God’s Word with you tonight.  As...

This year, I am finishing up a short little biography on the English Presbyterian Matthew Henry (1662-1714). Most well-known for his Commentary on the Whole Bible and Method for Prayer, this short little biography...

Last night, First Presbyterian Church of Jackson hosted the 29th Annual Mid-South Men’s Rally.
