Behold, A Throne

The city of Smyrna, present day Izmir in Turkey, was built on a hill often called the “Crown of Smyrna.” Look at verse 10. Those who are faithful sufferers for Jesus in the city of Smyrna will be given a better crown, a crown of life. Jesus, you see, wants them to endure when faithfulness to Him becomes really costly. He wants them to be like rocks on...

Last Things

How you think about what happens at life’s end and what happens afterwards shapes how you think about life here and now, doesn’t it? The value and the importance of life, in no small measure, depends on your view of things like death, judgment, heaven, and hell. And so for the next few weeks we are going to take time to consider together the Bible’s teaching on those...

Scandalous Grace: Jesus' Meals with Sinners

Well after a week break from the Mission Conference we’re picking up The Scandalous Grace series as David has already told you this evening.  Last time we were here together for this meeting Ralph Kelley looked at the meal that Jesus shared with Zacchaeus, who was a short, despised tax-collector, a notorious sinner, and we saw the grace of God in that narrative.  Tonight we’re going to look...

The Best Chapter in the Bible

The Lord's Day Morning August 9, 2009

Romans 8:31-32

“If God is for Us” (1)

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Amen. Now turn with me to Romans 8 as we continue in our exposition of what we've called The Greatest or Best Chapter in the Bible. And we come this morning to Romans 8 and verses 31 and 32.

Now, I want to ask a question: How...

1 John

Turn with me to 1 John, and look at chapter 1 before we begin to look at chapter 2. If you don't have your Bibles, the pew Bible is available to you, and 1 John is towards the end of the New Testament right before the book of Revelation and before the book of Jude and, of course, 2nd and 3rd John, and so right towards...


Justification by Faith Flows From the Love of God Romans 5:6-8

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 5. As we continue to work our way through this great book of Romans, let me remind you where we have come from. In chapters and 2 the apostle tells us what the problem is, what our predicament is. In chapter 3...


If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 27. We’ve been studying in the gospel of Matthew for the last several times focusing on the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ and today we come to His burial. As we looked at Matthew 27, verses 33 through 44, we began that specific focus on the crucifixion, and we said that Matthew...


If you have Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 27. The last time we were together in the gospel of Matthew we were looking specifically at verses 44 through 49 where Matthew recounts for us Jesus’ cry of abandonment, His cry of dereliction, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew points us to two cries from the cross. That first...
