And just to give you a clue where we’re going in the next couple of Sundays in the evenings, we’ll be looking at 3:14-16 tonight and then next Sunday evening, Lord willing, we’ll look at what has been called “the John 3:16 of the Old Testament” – Zephaniah 3:17, which is one of my favorite Bible verses. So I’ve been thinking about these verses for a while and...

Would you look at it with me just for a moment before we read it together and let me give you these four headings? First of all, in verses 1 and 2, there is prayer. The psalmist is praying. Then in verses 3 and 4, there is preaching – although he's still in this mode of prayer, he's really speaking to his own heart as much as he...

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. There is nothing in Jesus that is unloving or impatient or rash. Everything about Jesus is pure and holy and spotless and upright. There is in the Biblical portraits of Jesus a captivating beauty...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

Full disclosure! Shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but I’m not too much of a reality TV guy. If you are, it’s okay, not judging, but one show that did catch my attention a few years ago was the show, Undercover Boss. And the whole premise of the show was the boss, the CEO of a multimillion dollar corporation, everything from Subway to Circle K, Burger King, would...

I invite you to take your Bible and turn with me to Psalm 31. If you’re using the pew Bible in front of you, it’s on page 461. This is a longer psalm, but a powerful psalm in that it not only shows us the rescue of God, but it shows us what we need to be rescued from in ways that we don’t normally think...

I invite you to take your Bible and turn with me to Psalm 25. It’s on page 459 in your pew Bible if you choose to use it. As you’re turning there, let me offer to you a word of thanks. My family and I are very grateful to you for your prayers on our behalf. Last week we went to visit my father who is eighty-two years...

Please turn with me in your copy of God’s Word to Psalm 130. And as you all are turning there I would be remiss if I didn’t offer just a few thank-yous as I stand here. First, to the session of this church, it’s a privilege that your session takes serious to guard this pulpit and so your invitation to me to preach here is one I take...

Ezra

The Lord's Day Evening

June 22, 2008

Ezra 9:1-15

“Prayer”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please be seated. You may be wondering why we have had a couple of hymns tonight that were dark and melancholy, and that's because the passage before us in Scripture tonight is dark and melancholy, and brooding. It's about sin. We’re going to...

How Pilgrims Praise: Psalms of Ascent

Now turn with me, if you would, to Psalm 130, what is for me a favorite Psalm. And that, of course, says a whole lot about me, I suppose, that one of my favorite Psalms begins “Out of the depths....”

As it happens, as I was driving down here this evening, John Rutter's Requiem was playing on the radio. And the second part of John Rutter's Requiem...

Leviticus

The Lord's Day Evening

October 24, 2004
Leviticus 5:14-6:7
“The Guilt Offering”
Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Now turn with me in your Bibles, if you would, to the Book of Leviticus. This is a part of the word of God, and we owe it all the respect that the word of God deserves. This was written by the finger of God, and written for our edification. Before...

Romans

Romans 3:19-20 The Law Can't Save You

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 3, verse 19. The last time we were together we said that Paul was beginning his closing arguments. Ever since Romans, chapter 1, verse 18, we said Paul has been functioning like a prosecuting attorney, both for the Jews and for the Gentiles...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Genesis 44:1-34 A Cup in the Sack

If you have Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Genesis 44, as we continue through our study of Joseph. We have noted throughout the over-arching theme of God's providence, not only does the Lord tell us in the story of Joseph, how Israel wound up in Egypt, not only does He tell us how...
