Psalms Book 2

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 65 which is a Psalm about the bounteous God. We’re continuing in our study of the Second Book of the Psalms–that is, that section of the book of the Psalms that runs from Psalm 42 to Psalm 72–and we have come to Psalm 65. Before we read it and hear God's word expounded, let's...

3 John 1-8 Truth and Love in Life

Turn with me to 3 John, as we continue to make our way through these three, little letters of the Apostle John. We have just finished a brief look at the 2nd letter, and today we are moving into that 3rd letter, a letter short enough to be written on one single...

Exodus 35:20-22 & Exodus 36:2-7 The Donation Dilemma

The Reverend Dr. O Palmer Robertson

Ligon made a brief reference to the bricks of this place. When I was a little boy, we were members of the church when it was located just a block down on North State Street from Capitol Street, and the decision had been made to relocate First Presbyterian...

An Empty Life? (A series on Ecclesiastes)

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Ecclesiastes 11. Solomon, who calls himself the Preacher, who was the king in Jerusalem in this book, the Preacher has been arguing to us that apart from God, apart from a faith relationship in God, life is empty and meaningless. And contrary to what we often hear today as believers, he furthermore says that the...

Exodus

Exodus 38:21 — 39:31 Priestly Garments

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to the Book of Exodus and to the chapter 38:21. We are just three or so sermons away from the end of this book, and tonight we're really at our last long reading. Next readings are going to be shorter, concentrating on some specific aspects of the...

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...

Exodus

Exodus 35:20-36:7 Gifts and Craftsmen

I'd like you to turn with me to the book of Exodus again: Exodus chapter 35, and we’ll begin in verse 20 tonight. It would be easy to get lost in the details of this passage and to be lulled to sleep and to miss the repeated and obvious grand emphases that we find here, so there are several that...

Exodus

Exodus 35:1-19 Sabbath and Construction

If you’ll open your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus chapter 35. We are moving into the very last section of the book of Exodus and Moses’ record of the building of the tabernacle. And the very fact that the culminating chapters of this book of epic adventures climaxes on the story of the construction of...

John

John 12:1-11 “La Perfumerie

Last week we looked together at the raising of Lazarus from the dead. We didn't get to it last week due to time, but let me go back for a moment to John 11 and ask the question, “Why it is that John doesn't record anything at all of Lazarus’ reaction to being brought back from the dead.” He had been dead for...

James

James 5:1-6 Worldliness and Riches

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to James chapter 5. We've been studying through the book of James for a number of months now, and in particular in the last three weeks we have seen James address the issue of worldliness. If you look at James 4:11, all the way through James 5:6, that compact section...

Matthew

         If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 20 .  We've been looking at Matthew for a long time now, and we've been in particular thinking about lessons that we learned all the way back in the story of the rich young ruler for two or three weeks now.  In the rich young ruler we learn...

I Chronicles 29:11-12 A Kingdom Perspective on Stewardship

I'd invite you to turn with me to First Chronicles, chapter 29. First Chronicles 29, verses 11 and 12. You are familiar with these verses by now. You heard a profound and passionate exposition of them last week. You have seen them on your stewardship information cards. These are the things proclaiming the stewardship season. And I want to look...

Matthew

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew chapter 6.  We have been studying the Gospel of Matthew and in particular the Sermon on the Mount for the past few weeks.  Concentrating on chapter 5 and Jesus’ teaching on the law.  In that passage, Christ had contrasted His proper understanding of the law with the Pharisees misinterpretation of the law, and in particularly in Matthew 5:17-48, we...
