If you’ve got your Bibles, please turn to John chapter 1. That will be the passage we’re studying this morning, John 1:1. I apologize I don’t have the pew page number for you on that, but John 1:1; the fourth gospel of the New Testament. Before we hear God’s Word, let’s go to the Lord in prayer.

Father, the words that were...

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...

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...

Philemon

If you would, please take a copy of God’s holy Word in your hands.  You’ll find pew Bibles in the pockets in the pews in front of you if you don’t have a Bible with you.  Turn with me to Paul’s letter to Philemon, just before Hebrews, right after Titus, on page 1000 in the church Bibles.  Before we read it together, let’s go to God in prayer. ...

Colossians: The Preeminence of Christ

I was telling Billy earlier that I feel like him tonight.  My throat is, I feel like, leaving me; my voice might leave me while I’m preaching so bear with me.  If you will open your Bibles up to Colossians chapter 3 that’s where we’re going to be tonight.  And before we get to the passage, just by way of introduction, I wanted to talk about etiquette.  Some...

Side By Side: Gospel Partnership in Philippians

Now if you would please take your copies of God’s Word in your hands and turn with me to Paul’s letter to the Philippians, chapter 2.  Philippians chapter 2.  We’re going to read from the fourteenth verse.  You’ll find that on page 981 if you’re using one of our church Bibles.  Before we read the scriptures together would you bow your heads with me as we pray.  Let’s...

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...

I’d invite you to turn in your Bibles or look on your prayer sheets to Galatians chapter 5.  Louis Armstrong is widely considered to be the greatest trumpet player in the history of Jazz.  When his professional career was really taking off in the years around 1920, nobody had ever heard anybody play the trumpet like him before or he was probably playing the cornet more at that...

3 John 1-8 Truth and Love in Life

Turn with me to 3 John, as we continue to make our way through these three, little letters of the Apostle John. We have just finished a brief look at the 2nd letter, and today we are moving into that 3rd letter, a letter short enough to be written on one single...

2 John

The Lord's Day April 4, 2004 2 John 1-4 Joy at Walking in the Truth

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to 2nd John. We've been looking for a few months at 1st John, and it's part of a larger study of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd John. And today we come to one of the...

1 John

I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 4. We’re returning to our study of 1 John today. One of the things that has become apparent to us through this study is that John has love on his mind. John is very concerned to exhort the Christian church to love, and especially to a love which expresses itself not merely in a claimed love of...
