Resources on Grace Of God

Fifteen years ago, Hans Mumm was given a really difficult assignment. Hans Mumm was a civilian but he worked in the Defense Intelligence Service and the Iraq War had just begun. The intelligence community had identified the fifty most important targets, people, in Iraq. The conviction was, that in order to win the war, these fifty men had to be either captured or killed; one way or another...

What a passage! And when we come to a passage like this, the temptation for us is to really get taken up in the fact that this man is demon possessed and to really focus on that. And sure, we’ve got things, as we’re going to see, that we can learn from this man, but the focus of this passage is not the demon possessed man; the focus...

Stories that Stick

Please turn with me in your Bibles to the gospel of Luke, in chapter 15. You’ll find it on page 875 if you’re using a pew Bible. Just a quick note. Our senior minister, David Strain, is on vacation with his family this week so please be in prayer for them that they would be refreshed and that the Lord would bring them back safely. Before I pray...

First let me say thank you. Wiley and I, we were kind of laughing about how ridiculous this all is. It’s like y’all put the kids in charge of church today! And it is; it is funny! But I really did, in two ways, before anything I wanted to say thank you, and first on a personal level. I love this church. It’s amazing to look out and...

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Genesis chapter 27.  Genesis chapter 27.  It begins on page 21 in the church Bible.  And before we read, something to consider.  This passage we are about to read, it may feel very distant from us.  This is a strange passage.  Someone after the eight-thirty service said, “That was a strange passage for Thanksgiving week.”  It’s a strange passage, but...

Scandalous Grace: Jesus' Meals with Sinners

Well after a week break from the Mission Conference we’re picking up The Scandalous Grace series as David has already told you this evening.  Last time we were here together for this meeting Ralph Kelley looked at the meal that Jesus shared with Zacchaeus, who was a short, despised tax-collector, a notorious sinner, and we saw the grace of God in that narrative.  Tonight we’re going to look...

Glory in His Face

This evening we are continuing in our series called, “Glory in His Face.”  We’re thinking about the person and work of Christ.  And we began by wrestling with the Bible’s teaching about the union of deity and humanity in the one person of Christ.  And then last time, we were thinking together about Christ our compassionate Savior.  This evening, I want to begin to think less about His...

Ephesians 4:7-13

“To Each One Grace Was Given”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Ephesians 4, as we continue to make our way through this great letter of the Apostle Paul to the Christians in Ephesus and to us.

Let me remind you, if you have the outline...

Mark

The Lord's Day Evening

May 29, 2005
Mark 10:46-52
“Lord, Have Mercy”
Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Now turn with me to Mark's Gospel, and chapter ten, and beginning at verse 46. It is the story of “Blind Bartimaeus”.

Now, this is a story that occurs in all three of the Synoptic Gospels. It occurs not just here in Mark, but also in Luke, and also in Matthew....
