Maybe some of you are coupon clippers; you’re bargain shoppers. You like a good deal! But then you hear those dreaded words, “Some exclusions apply.” It’s not going to be as good of a deal as you once thought. I came across a department store coupon the other day that was $10 off for every $25 you spend; sounds like a pretty good deal, but “Some exclusions apply.” And...
The book of Job. We have been introduced to Job in the opening chapters of the book as a remarkable man of God who has been terribly afflicted in the mysterious, sovereign purposes of the Lord. God has given permission to Satan to assail Job and all his riches have been stripped away, his ten children killed, his wife holds him in contempt. And his so-called friends, when...
It’s popular today to think that there are many paths to God or that God is whatever you feel him to be. People say things like, “God for me is [fill in the blank].” If Christians claim their knowledge of God is true, this claim is seen as misguided at best and arrogant at worst. But the most important question any of us will ever ask is, “Can...
John 7 Who is He?

And two of them, apparently,...
Exodus 32:19-35 Who is on the Lord's Side?
If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus 32, as we continue to study the story of the golden calf. We've looked previously at this idolatry of Israel and Moses’ beautiful prayer of intercession in response, and in our previous study we raised some significant questions regarding how God responds to...

The Reverend Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III
If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Luke chapter 16 as we continue our way through the gospel of Luke. This is a hard parable. The commentators sometimes wrestle with this to understand what Jesus is speaking about. It's hard for a number of...
Please turn with me in your Bibles to 2 Samuel chapter 9. 2 Samuel chapter 9; it begins on page 260 in your pew Bible. And just before we read, something to consider - when I was a junior in high school I was living in Fayetteville, Arkansas; it was 2001 and my dad is a football coach but he was out of coaching for a few years...
