Rooted

Pilots talk about the three axes of flight. So a plane, an airplane has three axes along which it must travel. There's roll - so the plane can move that way (front to back). There's pitch - so it can move that way (side to side). And there's yaw - so it can move that way (vertical). And a pilot needs to pay attention to the instruments in...

And you see, as we come to Zephaniah 3 tonight, we’re in that same position as these two lovers in that song. There’s a language barrier between God and us. He is holy and we are not. Just like there was a language barrier between the Italian and the American, there’s a language barrier between us. And yet we come to a Bible verse tonight that could share...

This psalm has two main parts, two main halves to it. Verses 1 through 5 is about forgiveness. And in the second part, verses 6 through 11, is about God’s protection and direction. I remember studying this psalm in seminary. It was one I did an exegesis paper on. I had to study the Hebrew, the original language, and this long paper about this psalm. And in it...

Well, tonight we’re going to try to descend down into the depths of a very profound mystery, the central mystery of the Christian faith, as we listen to the Lord Jesus pray from the cross. Actually three times – we only read two of His prayers – but three times He prays. He lifts up His voice in prayer as He hangs in agony between two criminals. Three...

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...

Last Things

Please take a copy of God’s Word. Turn with me to the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation, chapter 14; page 1036 if you’re using one of our church Bibles. Revelation chapter 14; before we read, would you pray with me please!

O God, as we’ve opened Your Word, would You now by the Holy Spirit open our hearts and our...

Next Lord’s Day Evening we will be, I think as Tree said to you and as it says in the bulletin, we will be at the Twin Lakes campground for our dinner on the grounds and our evening worship service out there. I know that will be a wonderful evening. I hope you’ll all plan to come and join us for that. And then the Lord’s Day following...

Last Things

Starting last week we began a short series of sermons called “Last Things” looking at the themes of death, judgment, heaven, and hell. We don’t like to think about those sorts of things too terribly often, but your convictions about those issues have a profound influence on the way that we think about life here and now, about what really matters, about why you do what you do...

If you would take a copy of God’s Word in your hands, you’ll find them in the pew racks in front of you if you don’t have your own Bible with you, and open it to the book of Psalms, Psalm 51 on page 474 in the church Bibles. Tonight and next week we’ll be considering the message of this psalm together and I want you to notice...

Let me invite you to take your Bible and turn with me to 2 Corinthians chapter 5. As you’re turning there, let me give you a brief review of where we’ve been over the last several Sundays and try to bring you up to speed. As Greg Meyer spoke to our kids, nearly preaching the whole Sunday evening sermon, thank you! We’ve talked about the fact that if...

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Genesis chapter 27.  Genesis chapter 27.  It begins on page 21 in the church Bible.  And before we read, something to consider.  This passage we are about to read, it may feel very distant from us.  This is a strange passage.  Someone after the eight-thirty service said, “That was a strange passage for Thanksgiving week.”  It’s a strange passage, but...

The last time I was at First Presbyterian Jackson - I was in the sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church Jackson, Mississippi was in September of 1975!  And I promise to be back in thirty-nine and a half years for another visit!  And I know that I’m probably belaboring the obvious but this place looks a lot different.  Did something happen between 1975?  I remember it pretty well but...

Found: When Ordinary People Meet Jesus

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. Tonight as we come to the last in the series of sermons, I want us to go to the climactic moment in Jesus’ earthly ministry.  We’ve been looking in each...

Zechariah Part 1: The Coming Kingdom

Now let me invite you again to take your copies of God’s Word in hand and turn with me this time to the prophecy of Zechariah chapter 5.  Zechariah chapter 5 - you’ll find it on page 794 if you’re using one of the church Bibles.  Zechariah chapter 5, page 794.  Before we read the Word of God let’s ask for God to help us understand it and...

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...

Exodus

Exodus 36:8 — 38:20 Progress of Construction

If you have your Bibles, please turn with me to Exodus 36. When we get to this part of Exodus, much of this material is duplicated from earlier passages in Exodus. The difference is that the earlier passages, commanding the way the tabernacle was to be built, the way the various pieces of furnishing for the tabernacle was...
