Sermons on Baptism

Rooted

Paul's great concern, his burden, is to help strengthen the faith of the Colossians. The Colossians have been under some pressure from false teaching that has crept into their church. And so in verse 6, you'll see he urges them to, having received Christ, to "walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him, established in the faith, just as they had been taught." He wants them to...

Baptism Sunday

Luke 5:12-26

“Healing and Forgiving”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Dr. Duncan: As we prepare to worship, let me invite you to take your hymnals in hand and turn to No. 34. Our opening hymn is going to be The God of Abraham Praise, and it's a perfect hymn for Baptism Sunday because it reminds us of the...

Luke

The Lord's Day Morning

Luke 3:21-22

“Jesus’ Baptism”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Both Matthew and Mark record the baptism of Jesus Interestingly, Luke's account of the baptism is shorter than both Matthew and Mark. It is not surprising that it's shorter than Matthew. It's perhaps surprising that it's shorter than Mark. Mark typically is pretty quick and to the point as he recounts history,...

Nehemiah

The Lord's Day Evening

February 8, 2009

Nehemiah 12:27-47

“Dedication Service”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Now turn with me once again to the book of Nehemiah, as we come to the penultimate study in Ezra and Nehemiah. There's one more to go in chapter 13. Tonight our reading is in chapter 12, and it begins at verse 27. And then if you turn back to chapter 6...

Acts 18:18-28

To the Ends of the Earth

Priscilla, Aquila, and Apollos”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please be seated. Now turn with me to The Acts of The Apostles, and we pick up the reading once again in the eighteenth chapter of Acts. We left Paul last week in the great and extremely important city of Corinth, and tonight we're...

Mark

The Lord's Day Evening April 17, 2005

Mark 10:13-16 “Children!”
Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please be seated. Now, just in case you were wondering why we were singing a Christmas carol–I love it when we sing these Christmas carols out of season!–of course, it's a reminder that our blessed Lord and Savior became incarnate, and became an infant and a little child. And our theme this evening,...

Mark

Mark 1:9-13 A Father's Love for His Son Dr. Derek Thomas

Now turn with me once again to the Gospel of Mark, and we pick up the reading this evening in Mark 1:9, and we’ll be reading through to verse 13. Before we read the Scriptures together, let's come before God together in prayer. Let's pray.

Holy Spirit, we come and ask again that You would breathe an...

Romans

Living in Christ Romans 6:8-14

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 6. As you do so, I want to remind you of a fact that may catch you off guard. For six and a half chapters, the apostle Paul has been writing to us about various things. If you notice, that not one time has he told you do...

Romans

United to Christ Romans 6:1-7

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 6. We’ve been working our way through this great book, and in God’s good providence we come to a wonderful passage, which stresses the resurrection of our Savior and its implications for us. We remind you that in Romans, chapter 5, verse 20, if you want to sneak...

Matthew

We continue our study of the gospel of Matthew today.  If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew 19.  In Matthew 19, the Lord Jesus is teaching us about the nature of the kingdom, the character of the kingdom that He is preaching in, bringing in, and He focuses especially on three subjects, marriage, children and possessions.  Last week we considered Jesus'...
