Well, tonight we’re going to try to descend down into the depths of a very profound mystery, the central mystery of the Christian faith, as we listen to the Lord Jesus pray from the cross. Actually three times – we only read two of His prayers – but three times He prays. He lifts up His voice in prayer as He hangs in agony between two criminals. Three...

Sermon on Apr 20, 1984

Luke 23:32-49

I'm sure that we all remember that atop the steeple of this church is the symbol of Christianity all over the world. And it raises this question: What is the meaning of the cross? If you were to be asked, “What does the cross mean?” It raises this question, “What does it mean to believe in the Christ of the cross?”

Luke 22:32 Salvation at the 11th Hour Reverend Geoffrey Thomas

Shout joyfully to the Lord All the earth, serve the Lord with gladness, come before him with joyful singing. Know that the Lord Himself is God. It is He who has made us and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His ports with praise....

Let's take our Bibles and continue this worship of our risen God as we take His holy and infallible word and turn to the Gospel of Luke. It is the 24th chapter of the Gospel of Luke, and as you open your Bibles, you would understand again that the word resurrection means “life from the dead,” “life from the dead.” That's why on this day we celebrate...

Several years ago I clipped out an editorial out of the Manchester Guardian, one of the great newspapers of our time, in which an interview was taking place between the reporter and a leader in the Anglican Church, Archdeacon McNutt. In the article the Archdeacon is quoted as saying, “What makes life purposeless and petty and vain and indeed intolerable to thinking men and women? It is...

Monday Morning Quarterback

One author notes a motto popular in Athens when the apostle Paul was ministering there over 2000 years ago: “Once a man dies and the earth drinks up his blood, there is no resurrection.” The same attitude is very much with us today. Most people, whether scholars or everyday folks, believe that life ends at death. The notion of resurrection—of bodily life after death—seems like a fairy tale...

Scandalous Grace: Jesus' Meals with Sinners

Unrecognized Beauty

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Luke 24.  Luke 24.  And before we read, something to consider.  If any of you know any names associated with classical music you probably have heard the name, Joshua Bell.  Joshua Bell was actually in concert in Jackson just, I believe, it’s been in the last month or two.  Joshua Bell is one of the best...
