That’s what Paul is up to tonight. He is writing to his young charge, Timothy. And this is kind of the guy Paul has mentored in ministry. And isn’t it interesting, here at the end of his life, these are the last letters that he wrote – 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus – Paul, who taught us about spiritual gifts – speaking in tongues, resurrections, all of...

Rewire

I wonder if you remember these moments on Monday, August 29, 2005, when Hurricane Katrina began to batter the coastline down on the Gulf of Mexico. On that day, brigadier general, Matthew Broderick was on duty at the Homeland Security Operations Center which is responsible for assessing really any threat of any kind to national security, whether it’s terrorism or natural disaster, and then relaying it to the...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

One of the great actors of the last generation that many of you will know is Robert Redford. He was one of those heart-throbs. Everybody loved him. And when he was at the peak of his success, he was noticed by a woman in a hotel lobby – and he was one of those guys who was voted “Best Looking Man Alive” like twenty-six times or something like that –...

Luke 12:1-3

“The Leaven of Hypocrisy”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Revelation 3:7-13

“A Letter from Jesus”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please be seated. Now turn with me if you would to the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation — a book that often intimidates and frightens and terrifies, because of its use of apocalyptic imagery involving colors and numbers and so on — but we're in none...

Mark

Mark 12:21-44
“How Much Should I Give?”
Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Now turn with me, if you would, to the Gospel of Mark and chapter 12, and as it so happens I think Mr. Rogers paved the way for me in his prayer tonight. This is a passage purportedly about, as he put it, money, but I figure it's about something more than...

Mark

Mark 12:28-34
“ The Greatest Commandment"
Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Turn with me now again to the Gospel of Mark, and we're in chapter 12. We have been following our Lord as He has been making these daily incursions, we might say...that's what they are, assaults on the kingdom of darkness...into Jerusalem on this the final week of His earthly life. He has,...

II Timothy 3:1-9

“The Last Days”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Amen. If your have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to II Timothy, chapter three. As we work our way through the letters of Paul, called the Pastoral Letters, we have most recently been in II Timothy 2, where Paul speaks of his own suffering serving the...

1 John

I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 4. We’re returning to our study of 1 John today. One of the things that has become apparent to us through this study is that John has love on his mind. John is very concerned to exhort the Christian church to love, and especially to a love which expresses itself not merely in a claimed love of...

Psalms Book 2

I'd invite you to take your Bibles and turn with me to Psalm 50. Before you get to 50, allow your eyes to fall upon Psalm 49, and remember from a couple of weeks ago, as we continue to go through the second book of the Psalms, a couple of weeks ago we were looking at Psalm 49 which is a very different kind of psalm. It sounds...

Romans

Romans 3:27-31 (2) Faith Alone

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 3. We’re going to be looking again at that same section that we’ve been pondering for the last couple of weeks beginning in verse 27. Romans 3:27-31. As we do so, we’re going to concentrate especially on Paul’s statement in verse 28 and two parts...

Romans

Romans 2:21-24 The Jew's Failure

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 2, verse 21, as we continue to work through this glorious gospel of Romans. Though it’s a letter to a local congregation, it certainly does contain for us a beautiful presentation of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have emphasized over the last...

Romans

Romans 2:1-3 We Have No Excuse

Open your Bibles, please to Romans chapter 2, as we continue to work our way through this great letter of the apostle Paul to the Romans. Let me remind you where we have come from so far, so you will appreciate Paul’s argument today. In the first half of Romans chapter 1, Paul has introduced us to...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 27 as we continue our study through this great gospel. We’ve spent a number of weeks in Matthew 26, and if Matthew 26 is a prelude to the death of Christ, then Matthew 27 is the main movement for it. It records for us the final events immediately prior to the crucifixion, and...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew 23. God in His providence always shows His word to be timely and seasonable. We have seen this in the last two weeks as our dear brother Derek Thomas has preached to us from the word on the theme of faith on trial. How wise and good God is to speak to us...

Matthew

I’d invite you to turn your bibles with me to Matthew chapter 23 as we study together in the gospel of Matthew. let me remind you of several things before we come to the passage itself. First, remember that Jesus has already spoken His final words to the Pharisees. Jesus, in Matthew 22 spoke His final words directly to the Pharisees. For many many months, indeed...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 21. Last week, as we looked at Matthew 21, verses 23 through 27, we saw the religious rulers of Israel challenge Jesus' authority to teach. They had no success in undermining His teaching so they dropped back and asked for His credentials: "Who gave You the authority to be teaching these things that...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to take them in hand and turn with me to Matthew, chapter 21. So far in Matthew 21, we have seen Jesus kingship clearly set forth in His triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem. And then in verses 12 through 17, we have seen His judgment against Israel, that has a form of worship and religion but denies the...
