Let me get you to either turn over to the back side of your evening bulletin or open your copy of the scriptures to Psalm 13. That will be the text that we’ll use this evening. And before we begin to read it, let’s go again to the Lord in prayer.

Father, thank you that you know us and you know that we are...

Psalms Book 5

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 109. Psalm 109 is a hard psalm. It is the last of the imprecatory psalms. That is, it is a psalm of imprecation of curse. It calls down God's curse on the wicked. And it is well that it is the last of the imprecatory psalms because it is perhaps the strongest and certainly...

Psalms Book 3

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 76. We've already commented that Psalm 74 and 75 are tied together. Psalm 74 ends with a plea for God to rise up and defend His own cause (in the 22nd verse), and Psalm 75 contemplates the confidence of the believer at the very thought of the coming of God's judgment, whereas Psalm...

Psalms Book 2

As we continue our look at the Psalms, turn with me to Psalm 59, Psalm 59.

Hear the word of God from Psalm 59.

1 For the choir director: set to Al-tashheth. A Mikhtam of David, when Saul sent men and they watched the house in order to kill him. Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; set me securely on high away from...

Psalms Book 2

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 52. The last time we were together in Book II of the Psalms, we were in Psalm 51, and perhaps you remember something of the ground that we covered in that familiar but very important penitential Psalm, the greatest of the penitential Psalms. Just keep that in the back of your mind, that the...

Psalms Book 2

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 48. We’re working our way through the second book of the Psalms on Sunday evenings. Over and over we've said that we want to ask what these Psalms teach us about Christ and what these Psalms teach us Christian experience. Derek walked with you through that glorious Psalm 47 with its opening words, “O...

Psalms Book 2

Psalm 46 The Christian Experience of Divine Support in Time of Trouble

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me tonight to Psalm 46. We’re working our way through the second book of the Psalms on Sunday evenings, and that will take us from Psalm 42 eventually to Psalm 72. And over and over we're asking what we learn about Christ in these...

Exodus

Exodus 23:1-9 Justice and Neighbor Love

The Ten Words give us the fundamental principles for Israel's society and the covenant code here in Exodus 21, 22, and chapter 23 specifically applies those principles to the social context in which Israel found herself. And so the code is at least, in part, a temporary and derivative application of those general principles. And you don't have to...

Romans

Romans 12:11-16 A Call to Diligence

If you have your Bible's I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter 12. Let's remind ourselves where we've been in Romans chapter 12. In verses 1 and 2, Paul sets forth a Magna Carta for Christian life. It's a grand declaration of some first principles for Christian living and he continues in verses 3 through 8...
