I want us to see three things from this passage this morning. I want us to see first the love of Jesus, secondly the sympathy of Jesus, and finally the instruction of Jesus. The love, the sympathy, and the instruction of Jesus.

How to Live in the Last Days

As you’re being seated, please turn in your Bibles to Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians; 1 Thessalonians chapter 4, and we’ll be studying verses 9 through 12 this evening. You’ll find that on page 987 if you’re using a pew Bible. 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12. Before I read that passage, let’s go to the Lord in prayer.

Father, truer words were never...

Good morning. It is such an honor to preach at First Pres, and my standard line about you when I’m away from you, which is most of the time, is, I say, “I owe First Presbyterian a debt I can’t repay.” I really mean that. I grew up here and was loved on here and taught at the Day School and became a Christian here and was nurtured...

New Community

Now if you would please take a copy of God’s holy Word in your hands and turn with me to Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, chapter 4; page 977 in the church Bibles. As you will perhaps have noticed, the general title for our ongoing expositions in the book of Ephesians has been “New Community” because it’s been a major concern of the Apostle Paul to explore how...

The Word Became Flesh

Well, it’s almost here!  For some of you the excitement is at fever pitch; for others of you you’re holding on until the day after.  There’s still a lot of cooking and a lot of preparation and in-laws are descending upon you and yet it’s almost here, with all the joys that it brings.  You’ve watched the piles of presents under the tree grow over the last few...

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...

The Word Became Flesh

This morning we are taking a short break from our ongoing studies in the book of Exodus to capitalize on the opportunity afforded by the Advent season and together to think in a sustained and concentrated way about the significance of the first coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  And this year, our thinking will be directed by the prologue to the gospel according to John. ...

If you would, open your Bibles to John chapter 21, John chapter 21.  If you’re using one of our pew Bibles that reading can be found on page 906.  John chapter 21.  I’ll remind you that our senior minister David Strain is on vacation and so this would be a good time to remind you to be praying for him.  He works hard and he’s earned a good...

Amen. Please be seated. We’re continuing our study of Ephesians tonight, and we’ll be doing so throughout the rest of the autumn, God willing. Let me just refresh you as to where we are. This morning...
