The Gospel for the Rest of Us

One of the great actors of the last generation that many of you will know is Robert Redford. He was one of those heart-throbs. Everybody loved him. And when he was at the peak of his success, he was noticed by a woman in a hotel lobby – and he was one of those guys who was voted “Best Looking Man Alive” like twenty-six times or something like that –...

If you’ve got your Bibles, please turn to John chapter 1. That will be the passage we’re studying this morning, John 1:1. I apologize I don’t have the pew page number for you on that, but John 1:1; the fourth gospel of the New Testament. Before we hear God’s Word, let’s go to the Lord in prayer.

Father, the words that were...

I watched some footage recently of people from all over the world who were blind but who through various medical techniques were enabled to see again – surgery for cataracts or retinal implants or other medical techniques. In one scene, the camera focused in on the faces of children, many of whom have been blind their whole lives, on that moment when after cataract surgery the bandages were...

Let me invite you to take your copy of the Scriptures. We’ll look at Mark chapter 11 verses 12 to 14 and then move to verses 20 through 25. It’s always a privilege to fill this pulpit. It’s a great honor because I know who’s been here before me. It’s a great honor to be here, not only serving here, but in this pulpit today. Before...

I’m going to talk to you tonight about conversion. A remarkable thing happened in the little small village of Northampton, Massachusetts. The pastor there was Jonathan Edwards and he wrote about it in a pamphlet which was actually published first in England and then later published in America and Germany and other places. That famous pamphlet, which was published in 1837, is entitled, “A Narrative of a Surprising...

The Word Became Flesh

Now would you please take a Bible from the pockets in the pews in front of you or turn in your own copy of God’s Word to the gospel according to John, chapter 1.  John’s gospel, chapter 1.  If you are using one of our church Bibles you’ll find that on page 886.  Before we read, it is our custom to pray and ask for God to help...

The Word Became Flesh

Now if you would please take a copy of the Scriptures in your hands and turn with me to the Gospel according to John, chapter 1.  John chapter 1; page 886 in the church Bibles.  Christmas for very many of us is a season of brightness and relief - tinsel and Christmas decorations and lights on a tree in the midst of the gathering gloom of winter.  But...

Please turn with me in your Bibles to John chapter 6, John chapter 6.  It begins in the church Bible on page 891.

Starving Souls and Hungry Hearts

 And before we read, something to consider.  My wife could tell you that sometimes, especially when I am hungry, that I can be pretty forgetful.  Sometimes, especially when I am hungry, I...

We are so very glad to welcome you all here this evening, particularly if you’ve come along at the invitation of a friend.  We have designed these six Sunday evening sermons especially for you if you’re a visitor.

Found: When Ordinary People Meet Jesus

Over the last few weeks we’ve been inviting our friends to church on Sunday night and if you’re here for the first time or if you’ve come along at the invitation of a friend, we do want you to know how glad we are that you are with us.  Each week we’ve been thinking about a different episode from the Biblical records of Jesus’ life in which His...

Found: When Ordinary People Meet Jesus

Well let me say as we begin how very glad we are to have you here with us, especially if you’ve come along at the invitation of a friend.  As you may well know, we are looking on these Sunday evenings at six episodes from the Biblical accounts of Jesus’ life in which He meets with ordinary people who are really not so very unlike you and me...

John

John 8:12-30 The Light of the World

Turn with me to John 8. We are going to pass over for this week the story of the adulterous woman, the account we find in verses 1-11, there is an enormous textual problem with that story; but that's not the reason I'm passing over it tonight. I hope to include an illusion to that next week in the next passage....

Romans

All Israel Will Be Saved Romans 11:23 — 27

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter 11, the 23 verse. We’ll actually begin reading in the 22 verse in order to catch a thought mid phrase from the apostle. We’re continuing to work our way through this great gospel of Romans. We've been looking at Romans 11...
