1 Timothy

What is the church supposed to be like? We all have our opinions. You may have some things that you would like First Presbyterian to be different than are. You may be here at First Presbyterian because you didn’t like another church and the way it was, and you found certain things here to your liking. Oh, we’re not talking about matters of taste or matters of opinion...

John

John 6:15-25 Treading Water

So Jesus, perceiving that they were intending to come and take Him by force to make Him king, withdrew again to the mountain by Himself alone. Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, and after getting into a boat, they started to cross the sea to Capernaum. It had already become dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them....

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 16.  Today we come to the conclusion of our study of this great chapter.  Let me ask you to turn back in the pages of your mind to our study of Matthew 16 verses 13-20 and then 21-23.  If you don’t remember those, or you weren’t with us, you might scan with your...

Matthew

If you will, turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew, chapter 11.  We'll begin in verse 7.  Last week we saw John send his disciples to the Lord Jesus as he was struggling in prison with doubts about the person of Christ.  Christ sent those disciples back to John with a message:  “Look at the fulfillment of the scripture, John, and look at the works that I...

Matthew

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew chapter 10 as we continue our study in the gospel of Matthew, and in this particular passage.  As we have reviewed Jesus' exhortation to His disciples in Matthew 10, before He sent them out into the surrounding villages and towns to preach the gospel of the kingdom, we have commented that in that exhortation, He very much tells them what it means to be...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 10.  From Matthew 10:24, to the end of this chapter, the Lord Jesus Christ is continuing this message in which He commissioned His disciples on their first journey to spread the word of God abroad in the villages and towns of the surrounding countryside.  We said that in this commissioning, some of...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter eight.  The Lord Jesus' Sermon on the Mount is recorded in Matthew chapters 5 to 7.  The words of life are set forth there.  In Matthew chapters 8 and 9, as we have already begun our study of them, we see the Lord Jesus performing miracles, attesting signs, signs that set forth...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 7.  Today, we come to the conclusion of this great Sermon on the Mount.  Since Matthew 7:13, Christ has been calling on all who will hear Him to enter into the kingdom.  Don’t simply stand and admire the teaching of the kingdom.  Don’t simply stand and say that the teaching of the...
