Rooted

Paul's great concern, his burden, is to help strengthen the faith of the Colossians. The Colossians have been under some pressure from false teaching that has crept into their church. And so in verse 6, you'll see he urges them to, having received Christ, to "walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him, established in the faith, just as they had been taught." He wants them to...

How People Change

Titus chapter 3. We’ve been in a series for the last three weeks on how people change. How does God actually change us? And what’s our role in that process? And David Felker has done a really beautiful job looking at a series in the life of David that showed how, in a variety of different ways, the Lord works to change His people. I’d like to add...

Rooted

 Paul has learned of the Christians at Colossae that their faith was being shaken, undermined, assaulted by some false teaching that had begun to infect the church. There were teachers claiming real “fullness” - that was their word; Paul is going to use it repeatedly in this letter as a way to counter their error - real “fullness,” power, spiritual dynamism in the Christian life was to be...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

Something Callie and I were laughing about the other day, or this just may be way too silly, but ridiculous nursery rhymes. Okay? So one of them that we all know is, “Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop…” Now I am a fairly young dad, but I’m pretty sure in all the “Parenting 101” books I read there was never a suggestion nor a direction to get kids to...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

Some of y’all may remember the name Jim Fixx. He quite literally wrote the book on running in the 1970s. It was published in 1978. It was called, The Complete Guide to Running. He was world renown for his expertise on not only his times but also how he ran and how he taught people to run. But one day he was out jogging on a road near his home...

A Faith Worth Fighting For

In the racks in front of you in the pews you’ll find copies of the Holy Scriptures. Let me invite you to take one in your hand and turn in it to the book of Jude, page 1027. You will find it useful once you’ve opened the Scriptures to keep them open as we study them together. Before we read them, however, would you bow your heads with...

The last time I was at First Presbyterian Jackson - I was in the sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church Jackson, Mississippi was in September of 1975!  And I promise to be back in thirty-nine and a half years for another visit!  And I know that I’m probably belaboring the obvious but this place looks a lot different.  Did something happen between 1975?  I remember it pretty well but...

Salvation Belongs to the Lord

Now take your Bibles in hand please and turn to Jonah chapter 4, page 775 in our church Bibles.  Jonah chapter 4.  Before we read let’s turn to God together as we pray.  Let’s pray.

O Lord, You have given to us this treasure in earthen vessels, this Gospel - precious, wonderful, arresting, glorious, good news for the world.  We confess to You, our...

Zechariah Part 1: The Coming Kingdom

Now take your Bibles please and turn with me in them to the prophecy of Zechariah, chapter 7.  Zechariah chapter 7.  We’re looking at the whole chapter together.  You’ll find it on page 794 if you’re using one of the church Bibles.  Before we read God’s Word would you please bow your heads with me as we ask for His help?  Let’s pray.

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Sing to the Lord a new song all the earth. Tell of His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations and His marvelous works among all the peoples for great is the Lord and greatly to be praised. He is to be feared...
