Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 13. Throughout our study of this book, we have stressed that the author’s grand exhortation is that we persevere in the faith, that we not turn our backs on Christ, that we not seek some other mediator, that we do not try and find some other way into fellowship with God.  And here at the end of the book he is continuing that...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Faith Assured

The Promises of God (The Life of Abraham)

Part VII

Genesis 17:1-8

Faith Assured

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 17. Thirteen years have passed since the birth of Ishmael. And Abram has resigned himself to be content with Ishmael as the son of promise. That may be a surprising statement for me to make. You may be asking, how in the world do you know...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 20. For the last few chapters Jesus has been teaching His disciples about true greatness. Jesus has been emphasizing that kingdom greatness is measured by the yardstick of humility. He had taught us that in Matthew chapter 18. He had taught us that salvation belongs to the little ones and those who are...

Hebrews

I would invite you to turn with me in your Bible to Hebrews 13. We are coming to the end of our study of Hebrews. The final chapter of that book is now open before us and I want to remind you that throughout our study of Hebrews we have stressed that the author is clearly focused on calling professing believers in this Hebrew congregation, most of them...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Faith Wavering

The Establishment of a Covenant People The Promises of God (The Life of Abraham)

Part VI

Genesis 16:1-16

Faith Wavering

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis. And before we move on to Genesis 16, I'd invite you to look back at Genesis 12, to remind you of where we have come from so far. This is the sixth in a series on the life of Abraham. To this point he is, of...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 20.  The last time we were in the gospel of Matthew together, we began a new section in the book in which the work and character of our Lord are on display.  It's important for us to know that these words are just as important for us today as they were when...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 12.  We are in the middle of the chapter. We will pick up in verse 18.  I want to remind you of the big picture as we approach these final verses of the book of Hebrews.  The logic of Hebrews’ argument has been very straightforward. First of all, throughout the book, especially in...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 12. In the previous weeks we have looked at Hebrews 11 in some detail and commented that there is a sense in which all of Hebrews 11 is a gigantic illustration of Hebrews 10:39 which had said that we ought to be those who have faith to the persevering of the soul. And so we get this glorious list of Old Testament saints...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Cutting of the Covenant

The Promises of God (The Life of Abraham)

Part V

Genesis 15:1-21.

The Promises of God (The Life of Abraham)[5] - The Cutting of the Covenant

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 15. One of the great passages in all of the Old Testament. We have so far been walking through the life of Abraham. This is the fifth in a series of the study of...

Matthew

If you have your bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 20. The first 16 verses of this great chapter contain the parable of the landowner. When we studied it a couple of weeks ago together, we said that that parable is basically a gigantic illustration of the very last verse of Matthew chapter 19, verse 30: Many who are...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 12. The argument of  Hebrews is fairly straightforward. If we were to review and taking a few cues from those wonderful messages that we heard from Mark Dever, and especially his message on the Book of Hebrews, we could say that chapters 1-10 tell us to stick with the best, stick with the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t look anywhere else for our fellowship...

Our Lord and God, we love Your word, and we ask now that we would open our eyes to behold Your truth for us today from this, Your holy word. We ask that...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me Hebrews 11. We come to the end of the chapter. We will begin in verse 30.  Hear God’s word. 

Hebrews 11:30-40       

“Father, these words are so majestic that we could hardly do justice to them. But You mean them, O Lord, for our souls to strengthen us, to strengthen...

The Promises of God (The Life of Abraham)(3): A Parting of the Ways

Lord God we thank You for this deposit of revelation, for in this book You have revealed Yourself, Your will, Your works, Your ways to Your people. And so we ask as we study Your word that we would see You more clearly. We ask as well, O...

Matthew

         If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 20 .  We've been looking at Matthew for a long time now, and we've been in particular thinking about lessons that we learned all the way back in the story of the rich young ruler for two or three weeks now.  In the rich young ruler we learn...

Hebrews

We have been in this chapter for a couple of weeks and looked at verses 1-7 the first time we were together and said that the connection between the end of Hebrews 10 and the whole of Hebrews 11 is that chapter 11 is a gigantic illustration of those who have faith to the persevering of the soul, a phrase we found in verse 39 of chapter 10...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 19.  We’ll begin in verse 27 and go to the end of the chapter.  Last week we looked together at the story of the rich young ruler.  And in the midst of the many great truths that are found in that passage, we especially saw that the problem that the ruler had...

Hebrews

Turn with me to Hebrews 11.  We were there last week and we continue on this week looking at the faith of Abraham.  We will look especially at verses 8 through 19.   

Hebrews 11:8-19 

“Now Father, we do thank You for this word, and ask that You would teach us glorious  truth from Your holy word, even as we attend to it. Apply...

The Promises of God (The Life of Abraham)

Part II

Genesis 12:10-20

The Promises of God (The Life of Abraham) - 2 Famine in the Land

Please turn with me to Genesis, chapter 12. We began our study of the life of Abraham last week after a number of weeks looking at Genesis 1 through 11. As we looked at the life of Abram in Genesis 12, verses 1- 9, we said that that...

Matthew

If you would take Your Bibles in hand and turn with Me to Matthew 19, we'll continue in our study of  this gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. The passage that we looked at last week is directly relevant to the story of the rich young ruler that we will study today. You remember that as the children were brought to Christ, Jesus said that the kingdom of...
