Behold, A Throne

That was, of course, Macbeth’s despairing soliloquy, his famous commentary, on what he believed was life’s pointlessness. Tomorrow and yesterday, he says, are empty things. Life is a “tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Meaning and purpose are an illusion. For Shakespeare, Macbeth is a tragic figure, so fascinating precisely because in his context Macbeth was so extreme. His speech is as...

Behold, A Throne

Revelation is probably the most neglected New Testament book, I suspect for at least two reasons. First, it is frankly complex and mysterious, isn’t it, full of strange metaphors, bizarre beasts; symbolic numbers laden with rich allusions to the Old Testament and to its imagery. And quite often as a result to the casual reader in 2016, let’s be honest, it can be very difficult to understand. We...

If you would turn with me in your Bibles to 2 Kings chapter 11; it’s found on page 317 in your pew Bibles. One of the songs we’ve sung over the last few days and weeks, “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” you know the first line, “O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie.” That couldn’t be true, could it? We know what...

We turn tonight to 2 Chronicles chapter 14. “The Times They Are A Changin’” - that was the title and the refrain of a 1963 song written by Bob Dylan. The lyrics speak of the changes that were occurring in the culture of his time and the need to get on board with those changes. In that song Dylan wrote the following. He says, “Come mothers and fathers...

God Remembers

Now let me invite you to take your own copy of God’s holy Word in your hands or turn with me in one of the church Bibles to page 48.  Exodus chapter 6; Exodus chapter 6.  We’re going to be reading the first nine verses together.  Before we do that, would you bow your heads with me as we go to God and ask Him to help us...

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Genesis chapter 12.  Genesis chapter 12.  It’s also printed on the prayer sheet.  We are in between a summer series and a fall series; I think the fall series will start two weeks from today and our time’s going to be tonight in Genesis chapter 12 verses 1 through 9. 

Genesis 12 and the DNA of...

Gospel Pattern: Old Testament Stories & The Grace of God

You may be seated. If you have a Bible please turn with me to Genesis chapter 22. Tonight we are starting a new series. We’re going to take a little tour this summer through the Old Testament. Before we read, to introduce this series, just consider this with me.

A Tale of Superlatives

Something that I’ve noticed about myself, I’ve...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Genesis 46:1-34 Israel in Egypt

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Genesis 46 as we continue our study through the book of Genesis and in particular the life of Joseph. The last time we were together, the tension in the story of Joseph reached its crescendo and we exalted in the reconciliation accomplished by the Lord and...
