Why Would Someone Reject Salvation? Romans 9:30-33

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter 9. When last we were together, we were in Romans 9, verses 22 through 29 in which Paul stressed the fact that God has a purpose: to reveal the glory of His mercy against the backdrop of evil. How timely that word of...

God's Purpose to Display His Mercy Against Evil Romans 9:22-29

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans 9. We come this morning with burdened hearts to the house of the Lord. It's not that there is just a national crisis; our own congregation has been touched in many ways. We have sons and daughter, and sons-in-law, and daughters-in-law...

I Corinthians 8

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Twelve Keys to Spiritual Maturity A Godly Home Colossians 3:18-21

In approaching these keys to spiritual maturity, it is very easy to convey two mistaken impressions.

The first one is the belief that the Christian life is about achieving some sort of whiz-bang, MTV, instant attainment thing. Just apply the magic formula, the correct set of mantras and, "Hey Presto" a mature Christian.

It's a bit like America...

Romans

How Can God Condemn If We Can't Resist His Will?

Romans 9:19-23

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter 9 as we continue to work our way through this great book and chapter. "If God chooses then our choices don't matter." Have you ever had somebody say that to you before? Maybe you said it yourself...

Can God's Promise Fail? Romans 9: 6-13

If you have your Bibles with you I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter 9 as we continue to work through this great passage together.

Romans 9:1-5

The Righteousness of God for Salvation Romans 9:1-5

If you have your bibles, I'd like to invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter 9. Today as we launch into a study of this great chapter a few preparatory remarks are in order. The first thing I want to say is this; this is a difficult passage. Don't let that put you off. It's...

Exodus

Plunder and Passover Exodus 12:33-51

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Exodus chapter 12 verse 33. We come tonight to the last night of Israel in Egypt.

Romans

More Than Conquerers Romans 8:35-39

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 8. Today we come to our final study in this great chapter. We’ll be looking at verses 35 to 39. But before your eyes fall on those verses, let me invite you back to verse 1. Let me outline where we have been so far...

Celebration and Destruction Exodus 12:21-32

We've...

12 KEYS TO SPIRITUAL MATURITY

David's Sin - Purity - #7

2 Samuel 11

The Bible is a book full of peaks and valleys of spiritual experience. Few valleys so deep and dark as that of 2 Samuel 11. The description of the fall of David is as tragic as it is gripping. The writer seems to slow down in the telling of the story of the great...

12 Keys to Spiritual Maturity: In Love with Scripture - #6

2 Timothy 3:10-17

There are few greater privileges than to have the Bible in one's own language. Over 450 years ago, Erasmus expressed a hope that some day the farmer as he followed the plough and the weaver as he sat at the loom would cheer themselves as they studied the message of Scripture. Equally, William...

Romans

God Is For Us, So Who is Against Us? Romans 8:31-32

Please turn with me to Romans, chapter 8. When we come to Romans 8:31, we come to the culmination of Paul's argument in the first eight chapters of the book. From Romans 8:31 to 35 Paul will asked a series of four questions. And those four questions are meant to summarize the main arguments...

Romans

The Purpose of God Romans 8:28-39

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you turn with me to Romans, chapter 8. Romans, chapters 6 through 8 tell us what it looks like to live in the grace of God. What grace looks like in the life of a believer. And it doesn't tell us that grace means that there is no suffering and pain in...
