Rewire

Paul, you will remember, has been defending his ministry. He would not take a salary from the Corinthians. Some of them felt that was grounds to begin undermining his ministry. They could not control him, you see, if they couldn’t pay for him. And so they began to insinuate that perhaps Paul ought not to be trusted. “He’s not a real apostle, after all.” And so for most of chapter...

The Search for Significance, Security, and Satisfaction

Psalm 16 is a prayer for security. It was written almost 3,000 years ago by King David. He is asking God to protect him and deliver him from threatening circumstances. “Preserve me, O God?” he prays in verse 1. “My flesh dwells secure,” he is able to say in faith in verse 9. David is looking for security from God. And what I want to do as we consider Psalm...

Behold, A Throne

Now if you would please take a copy of God’s holy Word in your hands and turn to Revelation chapter 3 at the seventh verse. You’ll find that on page 1029 if you’re using one of our church Bibles. We have been working through the book of Revelation and studying seven messages for the churches of Asia Minor given to the Apostle John by the risen...

My son, Danny, came home from his baseball team and he said, “Dad, it was really weird.” He was in sixth grade. He said, “The coach made us all bow to the ground. It was like we were worshiping the ground. You know, we all line up and we bow to the coach,” and that’s like a handshake in Japan, “but then Dad, it’s so weird, we turn...

God Rescues

If you have your own copy of the Scriptures, turn to Exodus chapter 18. If you are using one of the church Bibles, you’ll find that on page 59; Exodus chapter 18, page 59 in the church Bibles. Before we read the Scriptures together, let’s pray.

Lord, we need to hear Your voice. We are assaulted every day with the cacophony of voices of...

Eclipse

Let me once again welcome you to First Presbyterian Church. I’m so glad you’re with us especially if you’re here at the invitation of a friend. Perhaps you’re here to see your child play and bless us so wonderfully with their music. If you’d like to talk to anyone, as Billy said earlier, about anything that you hear tonight, I’d be really glad to meet with you afterwards...

Sex

Beginning last Sunday evening and running over the course of five Sundays as Gary said earlier, we are looking at some of the big barriers to faith in Jesus Christ in our culture and our context. Last time we thought about money and this week we’re going to think about sex and sexuality. And you’ll understand that actually I picked these five subjects mainly as an insurance policy....

Let me invite you to take your Bible and turn with me to 2 Corinthians chapter 5. As you’re turning there, let me give you a brief review of where we’ve been over the last several Sundays and try to bring you up to speed. As Greg Meyer spoke to our kids, nearly preaching the whole Sunday evening sermon, thank you! We’ve talked about the fact that if...
