We’re going to learn three things tonight. Jonah teaches us about the kingdom of mercy, the God of mercy, and the cost of mercy. So first, Jonah’s problem in chapter 1 teaches us about the kingdom of mercy. Jonah in verse 1 is called by the Lord to be a prophet and we know that from 2 Kings 14 Jonah was from the north, from Israel. This was...

The Gospel of Mark

You might say that this part of the chapter reads a bit like a sort of a journalistic documentary, you know, as the camera follows Jesus across the course of one whole day; one twenty-four-hour period. If you trace back to verse 21 for a moment you will see that the passage we considered last week begins on the Sabbath morning. And then, verse 29, He went directly...

Not a typical message, not a typical passage you’d expect to be read at a Missions Conference. I was teaching a Bible study for a group of men and there were several non-Christians in that group and after we read the passage one of these non-Christian men said – one of the reasons I like studying the Bible with non-Christians, they tell you the things we don’t dare...

God Reigns

Now if you would please take a copy of the Scriptures and turn with me in them to the book of Exodus, chapter 21. If you’re using one of our church Bibles, you’ll find them in the pew racks in front of you or under your chair and Exodus 21, we’re going to be looking at the first eleven verses, that’s on page 62 in our...

I had the privilege a few days ago of teaching the Bible lesson to the children from Neighborhood Christian Center as they meet during the summertime in our church. And I asked the question, I started off the lesson of asking the question, “What is the most frequently mentioned animal in the Bible?” The first answer that came up was, “sheep.” And they were right. And...

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...

It is a privilege to be here again this morning, to open God’s Word with you.  If you have your Bibles if you’d turn to the Gospel of God according to Mark, to chapter 5. 

The Context of Mark’s Gospel

Someone has called Mark, “the gospel for guys,” which I happen to like - action-packed, rapid fire snapshots of Jesus...

God Remembers

Now if you would please take your copies of God’s holy Word in your hands and turn with me to Exodus chapter 3.  Exodus chapter 3, which you will find on page 46 if you’re reading in one of our church Bibles.  Once you have the Scriptures open before you, would you join with me as we turn to God and ask for His help as we seek...

Take your copies of God’s Word and turn to Matthew chapter nine. We’ll be looking at verses 35 through 39. If you don’t have a Bible with you the passage is on the back of this evening’s prayer guide. Before we read God’s Word, let’s pray again.

Our heavenly Father, we asked that we would be gripped by the truth of this passage. We...

“Feeding a Multitude”
Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please turn with me to the Gospel of Mark, and chapter six, beginning at verse 30. We have something like seven or eight stories in chapters six and seven and eight of Mark's gospel, all of them dealing with a very common theme: Who is Jesus Christ?

It's an evangelistic theme. It's a...

John

John 6:1 to 15 What Difference Does a Few Thousand Make?

After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias). A large crowd followed Him, because they saw the signs which He was performing on those who were sick. Then Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat down with His disciples. Now the Passover, the feast of...
