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...

Sermon on May 14, 2014

Psalm 1

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 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...

Sermon on Nov 10, 2002

Psalm 10:4

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

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 13

Sermon on Jul 14, 2019

Psalm 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...

Chapter 14

Good to see y’all. Good to have you if you’re visiting with us here this morning. If you’ve got your Bibles, turn to Psalm 14. We’ll be looking through this psalm together here this morning. 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

Sermon on May 14, 2017

Psalm 16

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

Sermon on Jul 21, 2019

Psalm 23

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...

Psalm 24:1-5 Nature as God - Naturalism

The Reverend Brad Mercer

Let's pray before we begin. Lord God, we do thank You and praise You for the privilege and the opportunity. We also recognize the fact that we are needy. We are not self-sufficient. We need You. We need Your Holy Spirit. We pray that You would come, by...

Psalm 25

I invite you to take your Bible and turn with me to Psalm 25. It’s on page 459 in your pew Bible if you choose to use it. As you’re turning there, let me offer to you a word of thanks. My family and I are very grateful to you for your prayers on our behalf. Last week we went to visit my father who is eighty-two years...

Biblical Priorities for the Life of our Church

How in the World Should We Worship?

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to open them with me to Psalm 29, and you’ll need to keep your Bibles handy today because we're going to try and cover...

Chapter 31

I invite you to take your Bible and turn with me to Psalm 31. If you’re using the pew Bible in front of you, it’s on page 461. This is a longer psalm, but a powerful psalm in that it not only shows us the rescue of God, but it shows us what we need to be rescued from in ways that we don’t normally think...
