Would you please be seated and take your Bibles and turn with me to Galatians chapter 6. As you’re turning there, I’m going to take a moment of personal privilege; you can call it a pre-application. An application of our study this evening is going to be reflected in this card that I’m holding here. It’s in the pew racks in front of you. I have to take...


The apostle Paul tells us that he has delivered the Gospel to the Corinthians, but as we’re going to see, as the communication of the Gospel has passed from ear to ear and heart to heart, it has gotten rather garbled along the way. Actually, not with hilarious consequences but with disastrous consequences. If you’ll look for a moment at verse 12 – we’re not going to think...

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of preaching on Isaiah 30 and we centered on verse 18, which the best Old Testament scholars tell us is the hinge on which the entire prophecy swings. It’s not just the backbeat, the undercurrent, the ground-beat of all of Isaiah’s prophecy. In fact, we could make a case for saying it’s the centerpiece for all of Scripture. You...

God Reigns

Well, this morning we are beginning another major section in the book of Exodus in which God gives instructions for the building of the tabernacle and its various furnishings and equipment. And as we’ll see as we begin to work our way through this material today and in the coming weeks, God gets specific; quite specific. There are detailed directions on scale and proportion on the materials to...

New Community

Now if you would, take a copy of the Bible in your hands and turn to the New Testament Scriptures to Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, chapter 3; page 977. Before we pray and read, let me say by way of preface that I find it enormously encouraging to notice that Ephesians chapter 3 begins with an interruption. Verse 1 - “For this reason, I, Paul, a prisoner...


As Kevin said earlier, tonight and for the next five weeks we’re going to be looking at some of the things in our culture that hinder people from believing in and following Jesus Christ. Maybe you’re here tonight because this is where you always are on a Sunday evening. Maybe you’re here because a friend has brought you along. Perhaps you’ve seen one of the posters somewhere in...

As you certainly know and I was so pleased to hear Ed’s challenge to you of all the missionaries that First Presbyterian Church supports, and you know that when we talk about God’s missional purposes in the world we are certainly talking about global purposes, that our God is concerned about and in the process of bringing about the redemption of people that are all over this world...

God Remembers

Now let me invite you to take your own copy of God’s holy Word in your hands or turn with me in one of the church Bibles to page 48.  Exodus chapter 6; Exodus chapter 6.  We’re going to be reading the first nine verses together.  Before we do that, would you bow your heads with me as we go to God and ask Him to help us...

The last time I was at First Presbyterian Jackson - I was in the sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church Jackson, Mississippi was in September of 1975!  And I promise to be back in thirty-nine and a half years for another visit!  And I know that I’m probably belaboring the obvious but this place looks a lot different.  Did something happen between 1975?  I remember it pretty well but...

Please turn with me in your Bibles to John chapter 6, John chapter 6.  It begins in the church Bible on page 891.

Starving Souls and Hungry Hearts

 And before we read, something to consider.  My wife could tell you that sometimes, especially when I am hungry, that I can be pretty forgetful.  Sometimes, especially when I am hungry, I...

Found: When Ordinary People Meet Jesus

Over the last few weeks we’ve been inviting our friends to church on Sunday night and if you’re here for the first time or if you’ve come along at the invitation of a friend, we do want you to know how glad we are that you are with us.  Each week we’ve been thinking about a different episode from the Biblical records of Jesus’ life in which His...

Found: When Ordinary People Meet Jesus

Well let me say as we begin how very glad we are to have you here with us, especially if you’ve come along at the invitation of a friend.  As you may well know, we are looking on these Sunday evenings at six episodes from the Biblical accounts of Jesus’ life in which He meets with ordinary people who are really not so very unlike you and me...

I’d invite you to turn in your Bibles or look on your prayer sheets to Galatians chapter 5.  Louis Armstrong is widely considered to be the greatest trumpet player in the history of Jazz.  When his professional career was really taking off in the years around 1920, nobody had ever heard anybody play the trumpet like him before or he was probably playing the cornet more at that...

Psalms Book 4

Please open your Bibles to Psalm 103. We've been working our way through the Fourth Book of the Psalms, and this morning and evening we will look at the great 103rd Psalm, one of the most beloved Psalms in all of the Psalter. This morning we’ll look at it especially as a way of preparing for coming to the Lord's Table, and so in doing so we...
