And I’m sure many of us could speak of the ways in which Romans chapter 8 has been a blessing and a help to us in our own lives and in our walk in faith. I think we could say that these verses, these truths here, were significant in Paul’s life as well. I think we can say that because in Romans chapter 7, what came just before...


Paul has been talking about the nature and the boundary, the limits, of Christian freedom. The Corinthians had written to him asking for advice about a particular problem that was especially pressing in the culture in which they lived. Food, meat was often sold in the market as surplus to requirements after having first been used in the sacrifices of the pagan temples in the city of Corinth. And so...

That’s what Paul is up to tonight. He is writing to his young charge, Timothy. And this is kind of the guy Paul has mentored in ministry. And isn’t it interesting, here at the end of his life, these are the last letters that he wrote – 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus – Paul, who taught us about spiritual gifts – speaking in tongues, resurrections, all of...

Salvation Belongs to the Lord

Now if you would, take your copies of God’s holy Word in your hands and turn to the prophecy of Jonah, Jonah chapter 1.  You’ll find that on page 774 in the church Bibles.  Jonah chapter 1.  Before we read the Word of God together let’s pray.

The grass withers and the flowers fade but the Word of the Lord endures forever.  We believe...

Thank you, pastor, for the warm welcome, and thank you for having me here tonight to preach God’s Word. You have such wonderful students preparing for ministry in your congregation. I know you are all enriched by their labors in your midst. Turn with me, please, to Acts, the twenty-fourth chapter. And I will begin reading at verse 10. This is a trial and everything that takes place to...

I Timothy 1:18-20 “Fight the Good Fight”

Dr. Derek Thomas

Now turn with me to I Timothy, chapter one. And we continue this morning in the section that closes the first chapter, verses eighteen through twenty. This section is basically a charge, a very solemn charge, at that, reminding us that as Christians, as believers, we are engaged in a war....


The Lord's Day Evening June 27, 2004

Mark 6:14-29 “Dancing at Death”

Dr. Derek Thomas

I think it has to mean something that you’re singing a hymn that's over a thousand years old, and we still believe those words a thousand years later: that the blood of the martyrs is indeed the seed of the church. And I chose that hymn, I searched in vain for the right...

Romans 3:19-20 The Law Can't Save You

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 3, verse 19. The last time we were together we said that Paul was beginning his closing arguments. Ever since Romans, chapter 1, verse 18, we said Paul has been functioning like a prosecuting attorney, both for the Jews and for the Gentiles...

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 2. We continue to work our way through Paul’s gospel to the Romans.
