Which Way? Finding God's Way in the Maze of Life

The Lord's Day Evening July 4, 2004

Psalm 23 “Whose Will is it Anyway?”

Dr. Derek Thomas

I do begin a new series this evening, a topical series of sermons on the subject of “Guidance.” We’re all, in one form or another, troubled, perplexed, by the issue of guidance. I think young people, especially, are troubled especially over one aspect of guidance as to their vocation, who they...

I want you to have some sense of what kind of story this is. The Christian message centers on the fact of the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It’s not a metaphor or a symbol for some abstract spiritual experience. It’s not a myth concocted by the religiously deranged or a deception deployed by the strong to manipulate the weak. It is a fact of...

Let's take our Bibles and continue this worship of our risen God as we take His holy and infallible word and turn to the Gospel of Luke. It is the 24th chapter of the Gospel of Luke, and as you open your Bibles, you would understand again that the word resurrection means “life from the dead,” “life from the dead.” That's why on this day we celebrate...

Leviticus

Leviticus 13:1-59
“Why is this in the Bible? — Skin Diseases and Mildew (!)”
Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

I'd invite you to turn with me to Leviticus 13. This is a long chapter. Leviticus has some short chapters, and then it has some long chapters. Leviticus 12 was just eight verses, but Leviticus 13 is 59 verses and it's very specific material,...

2 Samuel

The Lord's Day Evening

“Rape - Why is this Story in the Bible?”

2 Samuel 13:1-21

The Reverend Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Now turn with me if you would to 2 Samuel chapter 13. One of the benefits of consecutive expository preaching - preaching through books of the Bible - is that you have to talk about things that you wouldn't want to talk...
