The Gospel for the Rest of Us

A pastor I follow on Twitter told a story recently. He was at the movies with his kids and having done that not too long ago with my three girls, the previews get a little bit longer when you’re a parent. Don’t they? They sit there and wait and they’re ready to see this movie. Well, that’s what this pastor was encountering with his sons. One of his...

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Sermon on Dec 29, 2002

Luke 2:8-20

We have been looking at the story of the birth of Jesus, especially as we find it in the gospel of Luke, and we come today to the familiar passage of the shepherds on the hillside of Bethlehem.  Now, you may just be at the point this morning of saying, “Enough of Christmas, already, it’s time to move on.”  But this is about our Savior, and we can...

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Luke chapter 2. We're continuing our study in four passages in the gospel of Luke, telling the story of the greatest story ever told.

Today we are in Luke chapter two in the first seven verses. Let's remember as we're here that Luke is telling this story to a friend. He...

John

John 4:1-26 Temptation at the Well

Please turn with me to the gospel of John, chapter 4.

The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but His disciples. When the Lord learned of this, He left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. Now He had to go through Samaria. So He came...

John

John 6:1 to 15 What Difference Does a Few Thousand Make?

After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias). A large crowd followed Him, because they saw the signs which He was performing on those who were sick. Then Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat down with His disciples. Now the Passover, the feast of...

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Sermon on Dec 14, 2002

Luke 1:46-54

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Luke, chapter 1, the 46th verse. We're working through this greatest story ever told this month, the stories immediately prior to and about the birth of Jesus Christ recorded in Luke chapters 1 and 2, and there are four particular passages that we're looking at. Derek has already introduced us to the passage in...

Sermon on Dec 11, 2002

John 3:22-26

John 3:22-26 Trust or Reject Him

Please open your Bibles to John 3:22, as we continue our study of John's gospel.

Exodus

Exodus 31:1-18 Bezalel the Builder

Let's look to our passage in Exodus 31:1-18, where we get God's instructions regarding the builders of the tabernacle. Now, the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "See, I have called by name Bezalel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. "I have filled him with...

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Sermon on Dec 8, 2002

Luke 1:26-45

Turn with me now to the gospel of Luke, chapter 1, and we'll pick up the reading at verse 26. Hear now the word of God.

‘Now in the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary...

John

John 3:1-21 Born-again Christians

We come now in our study to one of the most familiar passages in the Scripture in the third chapter of John. Hear now the inerrant, infallible word of God:

“Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; this man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, ‘Rabbi, we know that You have come from...

Sermon on Nov 28, 2002

Psalm 105 We Give Thanks

Thanksgiving 2000

I invite you to turn with me to Psalm 105. The contemplation of God's mercies to us is essential to our ability to thank Him as we ought.

Why are you thankful today? What are you here to give thanks for? Why do we give thanks? We may be here very mindful of family blessings of various sorts that God has...

John

Sermon on Nov 27, 2002

John 2:12-25

John 2:12-25 Cleanliness Is Next to Godliness

We've just been looking together in John, chapter two, at the story of the wedding in Cana of Galilee at which Jesus gave the first sign of His native glory and deity, the changing of water into wine-180 gallons of it. This, as John comments, was the first of His signs which He did in Cana of Galilee. Many have studied...

Exodus

Exodus 30:1-38 A Sweet Smell for the Lord

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn to Exodus chapter 30. Let's begin with reading Exodus chapter 30: 1-10.

“Moreover, you shall make an altar as a place for burning incense; you shall make it of acacia wood. Its length shall be a cubit, and its width a cubit, it shall be...

“On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee and the mother of Jesus was there; and both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding.

James

Sermon on Nov 17, 2002

James 5:7-12

James 5:7-12 Be Patient

If you have your bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to James Chapter 5 verse 7.

“Be patient, therefore, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord...

John

Sermon on Nov 13, 2002

John 1:19-34

John 1:19-34 A Voice in the Boonies

Turn with me to the gospel of John. Everybody loves John's gospel. It's the gospel Billy Graham sends every recent, new-born convert to read. I was wondering as we were praying together this evening, when was your first experience of reading John's gospel? And you can never tire of John's gospel. Every time you read it, there is something new and...
