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...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 9.  We've said, as we have been studying Matthew 8 and 9, that in Matthew 6 through 7, the Lord Jesus sets forth His doctrine of the Christian life.  He gives us a compendium on His  teaching,  on how believers are to live kingdom life in a fallen world.  In Matthew 8 and 9, His deeds of power are set...

Thanksgiving 1997 Psalm 107

Dr. Ligon Duncan

Before we turn to the Scriptures, I'd like to turn your attention to your order of service, and just point out, under the record of Thanksgiving as viewed by a citizen, exactly 150 years ago this Thanksgiving, John Munn, who was a native of Connecticut, recorded in his journal his experience of the first Thanksgiving in Canton, MS. If...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 9.  In our past studies, we have commented that in Matthew 5 through 7, we have the words of life from our Lord.  In Matthew 8 and 9, we have deeds of power by our Lord that we may see by His words and deeds that He is indeed the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 8.  The Lord Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount is recorded from chapter 5 to chapter 7, giving us the words of life and the way of life.  Chapters 8 and 9 of Matthew, miracles, mighty attesting signs of the Lord Jesus Christ, are performed so that the word of life is set...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter eight.  The Lord Jesus' Sermon on the Mount is recorded in Matthew chapters 5 to 7.  The words of life are set forth there.  In Matthew chapters 8 and 9, as we have already begun our study of them, we see the Lord Jesus performing miracles, attesting signs, signs that set forth...

Matthew

Having spoken the words of life in the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord Jesus now demonstrates His power by the performance of miracles, signs which attest to who He is, signs which prove the truth of His teaching, signs which prove the claims that He is, indeed, the Christ.  And so, by words and deeds, He is shown the Messiah.  The passage which we’re going to look...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 7.  Today, we come to the conclusion of this great Sermon on the Mount.  Since Matthew 7:13, Christ has been calling on all who will hear Him to enter into the kingdom.  Don’t simply stand and admire the teaching of the kingdom.  Don’t simply stand and say that the teaching of the...
