The action all takes place – a rather familiar story – it all takes place at a dinner party in the home of a Pharisee, a religious leader of the time, a Pharisee by the name of Simon. It was customary among Pharisees, especially on the Sabbath Day after Sabbath worship, to bring a guest of honor home and have a large Sabbath meal with your Pharisee friends...

First is the guilt of the righteous. The righteous, the righteous one is Jesus. Jesus is the one who knew no sin. He knew no sin. There is nothing in Jesus that is selfish.

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.

Let’s pray!

So come and do what You alone can do for the glory of the Father alone. In...

Leviticus

If you have your Bibles, let me ask you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 40.  I really meant that!  Exodus, chapter 40.  I’ll get you back to Leviticus 9, but I want to remind you of something that we’ve already seen.
