Behold, A Throne

Richard Bewes, in his brilliant little commentary on the book of Revelation, tells the story of a trip he made to Sweden. He was traveling from the mainland to the islands of Tjorn and Orust. “To get there,” he said, “you have to pass over the famous and very beautiful, Tjorn Bridge. On this occasion, however, I was unable to use the bridge; it was down. A tanker...

God Reigns

Now if you would please take a copy of the Scriptures and turn with me in them to the book of Exodus, chapter 21. If you’re using one of our church Bibles, you’ll find them in the pew racks in front of you or under your chair and Exodus 21, we’re going to be looking at the first eleven verses, that’s on page 62 in our...

Advent Songs

We continue our Advent series looking at the four songs with which the opening chapters of the book of Luke begin. There is, as we said last time, a real sense in which these four songs could be called the very first Christmas carols, songs of praise, the first songs of praise in response to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. And last Lord’s Day...

Extraordinary

Tonight we begin a new series looking at the message of the book of Ruth, so let me invite you please to take your own copy of holy Scripture, or if you don’t have your Bible with you to take a church Bible, and turn with me in it to the book of Ruth, chapter 1, page 222 in the Old Testament Scriptures. Page 222; Ruth chapter 1...

The Lord's Day Morning

January 1, 2006

Ephesians 3:7-13

“My Tribulations on Your Behalf are for Your Glory”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

As we return to Ephesians in the New Year, and I couldn't have picked a better passage to start with. We’re going to concentrate especially on Ephesians 3:8-13 this morning, but I want you to remember what we saw when we studied Ephesians 3:1-6, in...

James

James 1:1 Permanent Servant of Jesus

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to the book of James in the New Testament right after Hebrews as we begin a study of this great book together. I want to say a couple of things by way of introduction as we begin this study, and the first is to draw your attention to the author...

Romans

Romans 11:11-16 A Hardening for Mercy's Sake

This chapter has been the occasion of many disputes and interpretation over the matter of God's dealing with Israel and the end times. There would be some who come to this chapter and say that this chapter predicts that Israel will come together as a nation in the end time, that there will be an almost or complete...

Exodus

The Lord's Plan Exodus 6:10-7:7

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 6. When we looked at Exodus, chapter 5, verses 15 through Exodus, chapter 6, verse 1, we saw that God's people responded to Moses’ and Aaron's announcement in a believing way. They worshiped God. But when Pharaoh immediately imposed heavier burdens upon the people, the...
