Matthew 6:9

SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER - 3

THE LORD’S PRAYER – Forms and Prayer Books

"Pray, then, in this way…" (Matt. 6:9)

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 28. Today, we finally come to the end of our study in the gospel of Matthew, and recently as we have reviewed Matthew, chapter 27 and 28, we have seen over and over this overarching theme on the providence of God. God’s providence in Jesus’ torture and persecution. God’s providence in Jesus’ death...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Genesis 38:1-30 The Shame of Judah

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 38. The last couple of weeks we have been launching into a study of the final section of the book of Genesis, chapters 37 through 50, and the story of the life of Joseph. And as we have said several times, it's important to note...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I would invite to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 28. We come today to our ultimate message in this series on the gospel of Matthew. Next week will look at the great commission next time we’re together and then into the gospel according to the apostle Paul in the book of Romans.

And we continue today to look at the theme...

Lord's Prayer

Sermon on Mar 19, 2000

Acts 12:1-19

A Notable Prayer-Meeting Acts 12:1-19

Prayer meetings were the arteries of the early church. Through them, life-sustaining power was derived. Luke, in particular seems to want to emphasize how important prayer-meetings were by giving us cameo portraits of the church at prayer. A particular location, a room in Jerusalem, is singled out. It is the one which belonged to Mary, John Mark’s mother, and an aunt of Barnabas...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Genesis 37:18-36 The Lord Meant It for Good

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me again to Genesis 37. Tonight we continue our study in this final section of the book of Genesis, Genesis 37 through 50 and the story of the life of Joseph. We said last time it was important to understand at least two things about this...

Lord's Prayer

Sermon on Mar 12, 2000

Acts 1:12-14

THE PRAYER MEETING – 1 The New Testament Church ѕ birthed in prayer!

ACTS 1:12-14

There is, of course, something deeply significant about the opening pages of the Acts of the Apostles. Would it be overstating it if we were to suggest that it is more significant than the opening pages of the Gospels? Perhaps! The Gospels begin with the birth of Jesus Christ, the promised Saviour of...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew 28. We have now come to the final chapter in the gospel of Matthew, and now at the end of his scroll Matthew, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, begins to recount for us the resurrection of his crucified Lord. And the story itself is gripping and even surprising in its own way...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Genesis 37:1-17 The Favorite

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 37. I, too, with Derek and many of you have been looking forward to getting to these chapters in the book of Genesis. As hard and as sad and as depressing are some of the experiences that Jacob and his family, and especially this godly man Joseph...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 27. We’ve been studying in the gospel of Matthew for the last several times focusing on the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ and today we come to His burial. As we looked at Matthew 27, verses 33 through 44, we began that specific focus on the crucifixion, and we said that Matthew...

February

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Genesis 36:1-43 The Book of Esau

If you have Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 36. Tonight we come to the close of our study of the life of Jacob. Though Jacob still has a significant role to play in the history of God's dealings with his sons. The focus, however, of Genesis shifts hereafter to Joseph. And in our studies...

Matthew

If you have Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 27. The last time we were together in the gospel of Matthew we were looking specifically at verses 44 through 49 where Matthew recounts for us Jesus’ cry of abandonment, His cry of dereliction, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew points us to two cries from the cross. That first...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 27. We have been working towards the crucifixion for some time now in our study of the gospel of Matthew. And all along during our studies in this particular chapter, Matthew, chapter 27, we have said that Matthew is recounting the death of Christ with a view to showing us the nature and...

How Pilgrims Praise: Psalms of Ascent

Sermon on Feb 2, 2000

Psalm 134:1-3

Please turn with me to Psalm 134, the Psalm we sang together.  It’s the last, the fifteenth, in this series of Psalms we’ve been considering known as the Ascent Psalms.  Now the words I’m about to read ought to be very familiar to this congregation because you hear them every week, and rebuke yourself if you don’t think that’s so because every Sunday evening Ligon begins the service...

January

How Pilgrims Praise: Psalms of Ascent

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, coming down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard, coming down upon the edge of his robes. It is like the dew of Hermon, coming down upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing — life forever.”

And may God...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Genesis 35:1-9 From Jacob to Israel

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 35. Tonight we come to a portion of the life of Jacob in which we are drawing towards the close of Moses’ focus on him as one of the patriarchs. It's interesting, for most of his adult life Isaac, his father, has continued to...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew 27. We’re going to look at verses 33 through 44. We’ve come today to the very brink of the abyss. In the last couple of weeks we have seen Matthew describe the sufferings of the trial and of the treatment from the Roman soldiers on His way to the cross. And today we come...

How Pilgrims Praise: Psalms of Ascent

Turn with me if you would to Psalm 132 as we come now very shortly to the close of these fifteen Ascent Psalms, Psalm 132, bearing as it does the title “Prayer for the Lord's Blessing upon the Sanctuary. A Song of Ascents.”

“Remember, O Lord, on David's behalf, all his affliction; How he swore to the Lord, and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob, “Surely...

Matthew

Would you please turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew 27:27-32. We’ll continue our exposition of the gospel of Matthew, especially of this passage dealing with his passion. We Presbyterians don’t often focus upon the physical sufferings of Christ. There is a variety of reasons for that. But it’s important for us to see those sufferings as they are displayed very clearly here by Matthew. Matthew wants...

How Pilgrims Praise: Psalms of Ascent

Now turn with me to Psalm 131. I was just thinking about this great Psalm, as Ligon has just called it. It's a very short Psalm. Just glance down — it's only three verses. I wonder if you’re thinking ‘What in the world does this Psalm have to say?’ ‘Not much,’ I suppose, is what you’re thinking. But actually this beautiful, beautiful Psalm has a great deal to...
