Rewire

And so as we think together about chapter 16, we’re thinking about living out the Christian faith in the real world, and in particular, in the fellowship of the local church. We’re going to see four themes. The first, if you’re taking notes and you’re looking for an outline, here it is. The first theme, verses 1 through 4, Paul teaches us about money and the church of...

Isn’t it amazing how many of our memories are tied to certain smells? I’m going home in a few weeks back to South Carolina, and to this day, when I walk through the front door of the house where I grew up, a wall of memories hits me when I smell that house because it smells exactly the same way it did when I was Garner’s age. And...

We’ll turn in our Bibles this evening to Galatians chapter 4. We’ll start there. I’m going to read a couple of different places. As you’re turning there, Jennifer Ouellette, in an article written not long ago, is discussing the way that our things, our stuff, and people’s profiles on Facebook reveal our personality. She says, “We hold onto certain things and display certain things because they remind us...

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...

The Servant

Now if you would please take your copies of God’s holy Word in your hands and turn with me to Isaiah 52 at verse 13, which you’ll find on page 613.  We are concluding a series of sermons meditating on the great Song of the Suffering Servant found in 52:13 through 53 [verse] 12.  So once you have your Bibles open there, let’s bow our heads as we...

Fighting for Joy, Growing in Humility, Knowing Christ and the Peace that Passes Understanding: A Study of Philippians

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you turn with me to Philippians 2:19. As you are turning there, I would remind you as we’ve studied through this great letter of the Apostle Paul, beginning in Philippians 1:12-27, Paul is essentially giving a missionary report. And then he breaks off from that missionary report in v. 27 to begin to exhort us to live the Christian life.

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Ephesians 4. You've been waiting a long time to hear those words! We've been in Ephesians 3 for a number of months now. We've camped on this glorious prayer in Ephesians 3:14-21, and we've just...

Ephesians 1:4-6

“Predestined in Love”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you will look at Ephesians 1:4, you will notice that the last words, probably, in your pew Bible translation, and certainly in my rendition of the New American Standard Version here, have the words In love as the first words of a sentence.

Now, the reason is [that] in the...

Mark

May 2nd, 2004 Mark 3:31-35 Jesus’ Family

Dr. Derek Thomas

Turn with me to the gospel of Mark and we come to the section at the very close of chapter 3. Last Lord's Day evening we were looking at the so-called blasphemy against the Holy Spirit which ends there in verse 30. We pick it up this evening in verse 31. Before we read the Scripture...

Romans
