Chapter 1

Good morning and happy New Year. I trust you don’t think it’s too premature for me to go ahead and wish you a happy New Year. After all, we’re only about twelve hours out from it becoming 2018. It’s sort of hard to believe that another year has come and gone and we’re about to start another year in just a matter of hours. Whenever New Year comes...

Well, it is a joy to be with you once again.  If you have your Bibles handy I invite you to turn with me now to Psalm 1, Psalm 1.  And it’s also printed for you in the prayer bulletin.  I’m very glad to be with you again.  It’s my privilege to teach and open God’s Word for us tonight.  We just sang that beautiful, metrical rendering of...

And before we jump in and read, something to orient us to our text tonight. The New York Times bestseller, The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown, is the story of the rowing team at the University of Washington in Seattle and their quest for gold at the 1936 Olympics, which took place in Berlin, Germany. And it’s these college guys from working and middle-class families, the sons of loggers...

Psalms Book 5

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 119. If you weren't here last Lord's Day evening we read all one hundred and seventy-six verses of Psalm 119. I was told by those who were clocking it that it took about twenty-four minutes to read the psalm out loud and then we just very briefly meditated on the overall content of that...

Psalm 2 Missions and the Universal Reign of Jesus the Messiah

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 2. We take a break from our series on 1 John as we come now to Missions Conference Week, and today we're going to be looking at the 2nd Psalm. The Missions Conference Committee...

Life Toward God

Psalm 2

Why do the nations rage     and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves,     and the rulers take counsel together,     against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, 3 “Let us burst their bonds apart     and cast away their cords from us.”

4 He who sits in the heavens laughs;     the Lord holds them in derision. 5 Then he will...

Psalm 8:3-9 “Christian World View” - Existentialism

J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 8. Last week as we looked at Nihilism, we saw a worldview, a philosophy, if you want to call it that, that argues that there is no meaning to life, meaning cannot be found in...

Psalm 10:4 Why Prayerlessness is Serious The Reverend Iain Murray

We are thankful for our welcome today and thankful to God for the opportunity to worship with you. It's a great joy and confirmation that the communion of saints is a wonderful reality that we come from different parts of the earth and we belong together to the household of faith through our Lord Jesus Christ...

Chapter 13

That’s the beginning of the book, Lament for a Son, written by Nicholas Wolterstorff who was a former philosophy professor at Yale University. But he writes the book not as a scholar; he writes the book as a loving father. He writes the book for his twenty-five year old son who died mountain climbing in Austria. And he calls the book his lament - Lament for a Son...

Let me get you to either turn over to the back side of your evening bulletin or open your copy of the scriptures to Psalm 13. That will be the text that we’ll use this evening. And before we begin to read it, let’s go again to the Lord in prayer.

Father, thank you that you know us and you know that we are...

Psalm 14. You’ll find it on page 453 if you’re using a pew Bible. Again, if you’re a visitor, good to have you with us. We’re glad you’re here. Psalm 14...

Chapter 16

The Search for Significance, Security, and Satisfaction

Psalm 16 is a prayer for security. It was written almost 3,000 years ago by King David. He is asking God to protect him and deliver him from threatening circumstances. “Preserve me, O God?” he prays in verse 1. “My flesh dwells secure,” he is able to say in faith in verse 9. David is looking for security from God. And what I want to do as we consider Psalm...

What in the world is this world thinking? God the Clockmaker - Deism

Dr. Ligon Duncan

You may have noticed as you were coming in at the desk where you were paying for your meal tonight, that the brochures are out for the “World and Life View” Summer Series.


Chapter 20

First of all, think with me about the Savior that we need. The story goes that one day the great 18th  century, nonconformist preacher and hymn-writer, Augustus Toplady, was traveling along the gorge of Burrington Combe in the Mendip Hills near the village of Blagdon in England where he had been preaching when he was suddenly caught in a terrible storm. And as the wind and the rain...

Chapter 22

Please turn with me in your copies of God’s Word to Psalm 22, the twenty-second Psalm, page 457 in the church Bibles.  Once you have your copies of the Scriptures open would you bow your heads with me as we pray together?

Our Father, we want to see more of Christ today.  He lives and reigns, having bled and died for sinners like us. ...

Chapter 23

The psalm is organized around these two interlocking illustrations. The first, and the most famous, and really the governing illustration, is the shepherd in verses 1 to 4. This psalm is known as “The Shepherd’s Psalm.” But there is also in verses 5 and 6 this illustration of God being our generous Host. He is the host in hospitality as He invites us to His table. And so...

Charles Spurgeon called Psalm 23, “the pearl of the Psalms.” And so long before Michael Jordan, long before LeBron James and long before David Beckham and long before Ryne Sandberg, King David had his own number 23. And this is a psalm that maybe for you is the most beloved psalm in the Psalter. Maybe this is your most favorite passage in all of Scripture. Maybe this is...
