You may remember, if you were with us last time, that Paul at the end of chapter 1 has begun to defend his ministry. There were false teachers at Colossae undermining his message, but also assaulting and undermining his ministry. He’s defending himself; he’s continuing to defend his ministry in these first five verses of chapter 2 as well, only now he really seems to bear his heart...

We’re in a series right now on Romans chapter 8 and this is the very end of the series on Romans chapter 8. It has been a detailed argument, so far, that Paul is making and it has lots of nooks and crannies and there are a lot in this passage and we can’t get to them all. But the main idea in Romans 8 is this –...

Let me invite you to open your copies of God’s Word, or the Bible, from the pew rack in front of you to Psalm 84.

In preparation for that or in introduction of that...

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Leviticus, chapter six. Last week we were looking at Leviticus 6:19-23, and at the priestly grain offering. And we saw several things in that passage of note. First of all, the emphasis on consecration:...

I Timothy 4:9-10

“Savior of The World”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Turn with me to I Timothy, chapter four.

Some Jewish Christians, some Gentile Christians are part of these little folds of...

1 John

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 5. Today we come to the end of our study of 1 John.

1 John

Our Scripture reading this morning comes from 1 John in chapter 3 and verses 10 through 24. Let's come before God, and particularly the Holy Spirit, and ask for that work of illumination that He gives upon His word. Let's pray together.

Holy Spirit, You caused this word to be written. Now we ask that You would break forth and give us light and understanding. And...

1 John

Turn with me to 1John chapter 2, as we continue our study through this great book. Now, it's been almost a month since we've been together in 1 John, so we should perhaps remind ourselves of what we've seen so far. This book is a book about the Christian life. In fact, John tells us in this book that to live the Christian life is to experience a...

Exodus

The Face of Moses Exodus 34:29-35

I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus 34. Tonight we come to the end of our study of the golden calf incident.

Joshua

Joshua 2:1-24 #3. Rahab, a Scarlet Cord and a Lie!

Was it right or wrong?

This is what many of you want to know! Was Rahab justified in telling this bald-faced lie or not? There's no way around it: it was a lie. Is this the Bible's answer to the question that Corrie ten Boom faced: you have hidden some Jews in the attic and the Nazis are...

Romans

Flesh and Spirit Romans 8:5-11

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 8. For the summer months we're going to be in this great chapter.
