If we were to identify the problem at the root of the mess at Corinth, the best diagnosis that I’ve come across is what one commentator calls “Gospel amnesia.” Gospel Amnesia – that’s what they suffer from at Corinth. I read a story – actually I saw this story on a news website the other day about a man called Benjamin Kyle who was found beaten and abandoned...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

Do you want to age well? That is a silly question. Everybody in here does. And I was reading a study recently. The most comprehensive, longitudinal study ever conducted by Harvard. It’s called the Grant Study. And they followed the lives of this remarkable class from Harvard in the ‘30s – like John F. Kennedy was part of this class. They followed these men’s lives for over seventy...

The great German reformer, Martin Luther, I think understood the inner logic of our passage when he used the old Latin phrase, “crux probat omnia;” “crux probat omnia” – the cross is the test of everything. The cross is the test of everything. You see for Christians, the cross of Jesus Christ isn’t simply the center and the foundation of our faith and devotion. It becomes the gauge and the standard by...

God Reigns

You know, to get a car started sometimes you’ve got to get out and push, right? Sometimes there’s a problem; it won’t start. If there’s a hill you can roll the car down, that often helps. Of course, there’s no point pushing the car down the hill and beginning to pick up momentum if, as you begin to build speed, you suddenly remember the reason the car won’t...

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...

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...

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...

How to Live in the Last Days

As you’re being seated, please turn with me in your Bibles to Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians, 1 Thessalonians. You’ll find it on page 986 if you’re using a pew Bible. Again, Happy New Year to you! In the next couple of months we’ll be preaching through this entire book of 1 Thessalonians. Tonight we will study chapter 1 together and the title of this...

Good evening. It’s good to be back with you tonight and it was a blessing to be with you this morning, and praise God for our time together this evening once again in worship and in God’s Word. Would you please bow your heads with me this evening as we go to the Lord in prayer and ask Him to bless our time?

Father...

One of the pleasures of being invited to preach here is you get to pick all the hymns so you’ve just sung some of my favorites and we’ll finish at the end of the service with the rich words of “Come We That Love the Lord,” an invitation to go forth with joy and to celebrate as we sing. But between here and there, there’s a calling. And...

You know if we’re not going to sing the fourth verse at least let me read it to you because it’s great! “Fierce may be the conflict, strong may be the foe, but the King’s own army none can overthrow. Round His standard ranging victory is secure, for his truth unchanging makes the triumph sure. Joyfully enlisting, by Thy grace divine, we are on the Lord’s side; Savior...

Romans

Romans 1:1-7 Greetings from an Apostle

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 1, as we begin our study in this great what we could call the gospel of Paul to the Romans. And the book of Romans, as we have already mentioned this morning, has been used mightily by God over the course of church history. Many examples come...
