Affliction in Verse

One of my favorite Presbyterian stories that I often use when we celebrate one of our children reciting the catechism was told by B.B. Warfield, the great 19th  century Princeton theologian. You’ve heard it from me now more than once, but I needed an illustration, and since I couldn’t think of any except this one, you’re going to hear it from me again. Warfield tells the story of...

When four-year-old Sidney Fahrenbruch moved to Colorado, she did what any sensible new homeowner would do. She found the nearest police officer and asked him promptly to check the home for monsters. She'd done her own spade work but wanted to make sure there were no monsters. So Officer Bonday of the Colorado Police Department showed up at her house and walked through with little Sidney to make...

If you would turn in your Bibles to the book of Psalms, we’ll be in Psalm 111 and 112 this morning. It can be found on page 509 of your pew Bibles. We’ve been working through a different psalm each Sunday in the month of July. This Sunday we will go through two psalms, and each of these psalms stands on their own but what we see is...

I invite you to take your Bible and turn with me to Psalm 34. This is one of the psalms that has a short superscription, an introduction that sets the words of this psalm in context. And they’re brief. They say, “Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.” Now that little introduction points us back to...

Psalms Book 5

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to open them with me to Psalm 128 and as you do, glance up to Psalm 127, the last of the psalms of ascents that we were in, in this study of the fifth book of the Psalms. And you’ll notice especially from verses 3 to 5 themes there that reappear here in Psalm 128. We’re reminded that “children are...

Psalms Book 5

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 112. I'd like you to keep your finger there at Psalm 112. I want to show you something about the two psalms on either side of it. If you allow yourself to look back at the beginning of Psalm 111, it begins with that ascription, “Praise the LORD” that Paul referred to in the...

“No Fear”

Luke 12:4-7

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

God is our refuge and strength, our very present help in time of trouble, therefore we will not fear though the earth should change and the mountains slip into the sea. The Lord of hosts is with us. The God of Jacob is our God. Let us worship Him!

Lord, You are...

Luke 1:5-25 “Scared Stiff by an Angel, Struck Dumb by Unbelief”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Luke, chapter one, as we continue to work our way through the Gospel of Luke and as we give attention to the things that led up to the Christmas story.

Nehemiah 5:14-19

“Generosity: But Was It the Right Motive?”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please be seated. Now turn with me if you would to the book of Nehemiah, chapter 5, and we're going to be reading from verse 14 to the end of the chapter. Now before we read the Scriptures together, let's look to God in prayer.

Lord God,...

Exodus

Exodus 20: 18-21 The Fear of God

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus chapter 20, verses 18 through 21. Today we come to the last in our series on the ten words. We've already seen how exceedingly rich the application of these commands are to our daily lives, and we barely scratched the surface of so much...
