Matthew

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew chapter 10 as we continue our study in the gospel of Matthew, and in this particular passage.  As we have reviewed Jesus' exhortation to His disciples in Matthew 10, before He sent them out into the surrounding villages and towns to preach the gospel of the kingdom, we have commented that in that exhortation, He very much tells them what it means to be...

Daniel

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Daniel, chapter 5. We’re in Daniel and we're contemplating a valiant stand which the aged Daniel makes against Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, and it is perhaps a word of encouragement for Christians today who are facing opposition for the Lord in their own lives individually and corporately, up against overwhelming odds, up against times...

Daniel

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to the 4th chapter of Daniel. We have said throughout our study of this great book that a central question in the book of Daniel is the issue, How can the Christian sing the Lord's song in a strange land? And as we live in a land which is stranger and stranger to us...

Matthew

Turn with me in your Bibles if you will, to Matthew chapter 10.  If you remember in our previous studies of this particular chapter, in the first few verses Christ appoints an inner circle of twelve disciples and then in verses 5-15, He begins to give them specific instructions on what they are to do in their first mission journey on His behalf.  They are to go into...

Matthew

Would you please turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew chapter 10.  Last week we began to look at this passage in verses 1-4 where the Lord Jesus commissions His disciples, those who had been close to Him, those who had been following Him, those who had trusted in Him and in whom they had placed their hope.  Now these who had walked near with Him were...

Matthew

In our text today, we see Him commission His disciples to go out into the villages and towns of the surrounding region and preach the message of the kingdom.  So what we have in Matthew 10:1-4 is basically an ordination sermon, a message that the Lord Jesus Christ gives to His disciples as He commissions them to their first gospel task.  They had been called to Him as...

Daniel

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Daniel, chapter 3 as we continue our study of this prophet of the exile as he speaks by the divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Daniel, chapter 3. Hear the word of God:

Daniel 3:1-30

Our Lord God, we thrill to hear this story and we thrill to realize that this...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 9.  As we've studied Matthew chapter 5-9 together, we have stressed, over and again,  that Christ's word, His words of wisdom,  His teaching on the reality of the Christian life, is set side by side here with His deeds of power.  And so by word and deed, Matthew shows Him to be the Messiah,  the Son...

Daniel

Salt and Light

The Dream of Nebuchadnezzar

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Daniel, chapter 2. Last week we commented on the context of the book of Daniel. We said that the book was set during the Babylonian exile of Judah. Jerusalem had been carried into Babylon as a punishment for sin, for rebellion against God. She had turned her back on her covenant God and she...

Daniel

Take Time to be Holy

Resolution for Holiness

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to the book of Daniel.  The very first chapter of that book.  The book of Daniel is a great mystery to some and a great encouragement to others.  The context of this book is the Babylonian exile.  The people of God have, by the very beginning of this book, begun to reap the harvest of...
