“A Man for All Seasons”
Dr. James M. Baird

I want to join the thanks for all of these missionaries again. Touched my heart. The leadership of this church, Ligon, Jim Stewart, it's been a good conference. And I want you to try to gather...(there go the little ones)...I know there's a lot of adults that would...

II Corinthians 5:9-11
The Judgment Seat of Christ
Dr. James M. Baird

Thank you, Ligon. And open your Bibles, please, to the book of Second Corinthians. The book of Second Corinthians, and as you’re opening your Bible, let me introduce the Scripture reading.

On a Saturday night, was a while ago, the basketball season had just ended for my grandchildren. One...

Ephesians 1 So You Are A Presbyterian Dr. James Baird

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 courts with praise. Give...

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...

Let us continue our glorious worship as we take the word of God, the Bible, and turn to the book of Matthew, the last chapter, the 28th chapter of Matthew. And as you turn in your Bibles, the message of Easter comes, first of all, from God. As we will see, the angel of God will come and at the empty tomb will speak to some women...

March 29, 1989 Acts 1:6-11 He Ascended into Heaven Dr. James M. Baird

And as we are studying the ascension, this is the account found in the book of the Acts. I suggested to you previously that there are six historical events, and these events have all occurred in the past, and this is what Christ is and what He is like. It is upon these historical events...

March 26, 1989 1 Corinthians 15:12-20 The Real Meaning of Easter Dr. James M. Baird

Let us continue our worship as we take the word of the living God. It is itself alive and powerful. Turn to the book of 1 Corinthians chapter 15. This is a great resurrection chapter.

As you turn in your Bibles, I remember the first Easter after I had grown serious about the...

John 15:9-17 Love and the Cross

Dr. James M. Baird

Let us continue our worship as we take God's holy and infallible Bible. Open to the Gospel of John, chapter 15 of the Gospel of John. As you open your Bibles, it is in this week, almost 2000 years ago, a week just like this one, that Christ on what we call “Good Friday” died...

Ephesians 1:3-10 Pardoned by the Cross

Dr. James M. Baird

Let's take our Bibles and turn to the book of Ephesians, the first chapter of the book of Ephesians. Soren Kierkegaard lived in the early part of the 1800's. He likened the passion of the pagans as they worshipped their idol to truth, and the coldness and the indifference of the Christian as they worshipped...

Galatians 6:7-18 The Centrality of the Cross

Dr. James M. Baird

Let us continue our worship of that God who is the true God and the God that we give our worship and love to, as we turn in His Bible to the book of Galatians, chapter 6 of the book of Galatians. I remember the time a young man invited me out for lunch....

Let's take our Bibles and turn to the Gospel of Mark, the last chapter of the Gospel of Mark, the 16th chapter. As you are opening your Bibles, the Bible says that there are three great resurrections. All three of these resurrections are linked together, and we celebrate all three on this day. Webster says, Resurrection is “the act of rising from decay, disuse, particularly the act...

If you will, let me suggest that you would be the jury–you would be the jury in this case and, if you will, think with me. Now these are the facts of the case. There was a man, Jesus of Nazareth, who claimed to be God and the Messiah. Second fact, He died on a cross. These first two facts are basically uncontested. He claimed to be God...

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?”
