Peter O’Brien, one of the commentators on this letter, says that these two verses “are the heart of the letter.” They form sort of a hinge. The first part leading up to this point, Paul uses many of the same phrases, much of the vocabulary that has been at the very heart of his message thus far is used in these two verses so there’s sort of a...


Paul, you may recall, has been writing to combat a prideful, divisive spirit at Corinth, especially when it came to the way that spiritual gifts were functioning in the life of the church. And in chapters 12 and 13, he has tackled that problem at the level of general principles. You will remember in chapter 12 he spoke about celebrating our unity and cherishing our diversity. We are...

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...

The Word Became Flesh

Now if you would please take a copy of the Scriptures in your hands and turn with me to the Gospel according to John, chapter 1.  John chapter 1; page 886 in the church Bibles.  Christmas for very many of us is a season of brightness and relief - tinsel and Christmas decorations and lights on a tree in the midst of the gathering gloom of winter.  But...

Colossians: The Preeminence of Christ

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Colossians chapter 1.  Colossians chapter 1 beginning in verse 24.  We are in the midst of a series on Paul’s letter to the Colossian church and the title of this series is “The Preeminence of Christ.”  This is our Fall, midweek series, and this is a letter written by the apostle Paul to encourage a relatively young church that was...

Beloved, I invite you to take your Bibles and turn with me to Colossians chapter 1. Colossians chapter 1 verses 24 through 29. And, as you’re turning there, I do want to give you a word of greeting from your sister church in Charleston, South Carolina. This morning, Pastor David preached on the partnership that the apostle Paul had with the Philippians and the partnership in ministry which...

II Timothy 4:1-4 “Preach the Word”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to II Timothy, chapter four. Last week we were in II Timothy 3, and looking especially at those glorious verses in which the Apostle Paul describes the nature, the character of Scripture as divinely inspired, as God-breathed, as...

“The Bible Tells Me So”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to II Timothy, chapter three. Last Lord's Day, those of you who are here at the 8:30 service got one point of a three-point sermon, and we're going to continue in that same passage today....

John 17:14-19
The Battle for the Bible Derek W. H. Thomas

Turn with me to the Gospel of John, the so-called “high priestly prayer” of Jesus in John, chapter seventeen. As you’re turning to that passage, I do want to welcome some senior highs who are here, I think, this evening, and intending perhaps to join us this fall. Welcome.

This is...

Psalm 119:97-112 “Back to School! Covenant Counsel to Covenant People”

Dr. Derek Thomas

Now, we began last Lord's Day evening a series that's going to take us through the summer. And it's a series on the topic of guidance. We began gently last week to introduce the topic. I want this evening to take it a little further...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 4. As we've been looking through this book, we have seen John do three things repeatedly. First of all, in the first chapter of the book especially, John was concerned to make sure that we as Christians understood the relationship of sin and holiness in the Christian life. On the one hand...


Romans 15:1-6 Putting Others First, As Jesus Did Dr. Derek Thomas

Turn with me if you would to Romans chapter 15 as we try and pick up in the exposition of Romans. Coming now this evening to chapter 15 and verses 1 through 6. Hear the word of God.
