We’re going to be focused on the words of verses 12 through 14. Paul, really since the end of chapter 2, has begun explaining the practical implications for our Christian lives of the great truth of the believer’s union with Jesus Christ. And as we saw when last we were in Colossians in verses 5 through 11 of chapter 3, Paul has begun first with the negative implications...

If you were with us last Lord’s Day Evening, we had a presbytery-wide celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. And the service was structured around the five Solas; those five slogans, almost, that summarized many of the central concerns of the Reformation. Since tonight I have a stand-alone message to preach – next Lord’s Day Evening we’ll have Dr. John Blanchard with us – I thought...

Well as a child of the 1980s – it’s been a while since we’ve had an 80s reference, so que is up! As a child of the 1980s, the big movie when I was growing up was Back to the Future starring Michael J. Fox and he played the Marty McFly character. So if you’ve ever seen the movie, Marty McFly is the cool guy. His dad is...

Behold, A Throne

When I was in art school I had a friend whose specialty was tapestry and her studio was almost completely filled with an enormous loom on which she wove intricate works of art from loose threads. Now the way to really appreciate a tapestry-like that is not to pick one thread and then begin to unravel it until you see how it intersects with every other thread in...

Please turn with me in your copy of God’s Word to the gospel of Matthew, chapter 11 verses 25 to 30. That can be found on the pew Bible page 816 for those using that. It’s been just over a year since I last preached here. Thank you all, again, for your support of Belhaven RUF, your support of our family. Thank you that more and more this...

Collision

This morning we are taking a break from our ongoing exposition of the book of Exodus. God willing, we’ll come back to it in the fall. As we begin the summer months, for now, we are going to be sitting together under the ministry of the prophet, Malachi. So let me invite you please to go ahead and take your Bibles and to turn there with...

How to Live in the Last Days

It became known later as New England’s “Dark Day,” and it appears that on May 19, 1780, a forest fire, a thick fog, and an unusual cloud cover converged over most of New England to create a darkness that began right after sun-up and continued the whole day. The house of representatives was meeting in Hartford, Connecticut, and many of the representatives began glancing out the windows because...

How to Live in the Last Days

As you’re being seated, please turn with me in your Bibles to Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians, 1 Thessalonians. You’ll find it on page 986 if you’re using a pew Bible.

New Community

Please take your Bibles in hand and turn with me to Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. If you’re using one of our church Bibles you’ll find that on page 976. We had been working our way through the book of Exodus. As we completed chapter 18 last week, we came to a natural break before the next segment of the story where God reveals His law to Moses...

Now let me invite you to turn with me in your Bibles to the gospel according to Matthew, chapter 11. Matthew’s gospel chapter 11.  We’re going to be focusing our attention on the last section of the chapter, verses 25 to the end; you’ll find that on page 816 of the New Testament sections of your Bibles.  Before we read God’s Word, we’re going to bow our heads...
