Better: A Study of the Christian Life in Hebrews

Keep your eyes on Jesus and run the race - that's sort of the motto of the Christian life. And you’ll notice in each of the verses the three directives - lay aside, run, and consider Him. Those are the three directives in each of the three first verses of the chapter and they outline for us three important parts of living the Christian life. Laying aside the...

Psalms Book 4

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 94, as we continue to work our way through the Fourth Book of the Psalms. That Fourth Book runs from Psalm 90 to Psalm 106.

Mark 14:27-31; 66-72
“Failure!”
Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Now we return this evening, once again to the Gospel of Mark, and we're in the close of the fourteenth chapter. That means we only have two more chapters left in Mark. Chapter fifteen, of course, will take us through the trial before Pontius Pilate, and especially the crucifixion of our Lord;...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 2, as we continue to make our way through this great, short letter of John to the Church and to us.

Joshua

Joshua 3 & 4 Crossing the Jordan

In our earlier studies in the Book of Joshua we have begun to notice that there are a number of themes which are important for us to try and grasp if we are to understand what this book is essentially about.

The first is that when God makes His covenant promises He always keeps them. He had promised to give...

How Pilgrims Praise: Psalms of Ascent

Now turn with me to Psalm 131. I was just thinking about this great Psalm, as Ligon has just called it. It's a very short Psalm. Just glance down — it's only three verses. I wonder if you’re thinking ‘What in the world does this Psalm have to say?’ ‘Not much,’ I suppose, is what you’re thinking. But actually this beautiful, beautiful Psalm has a great deal to...

The Incomparable Christ: Exposition of Colossians

Colossians 2:6-7 The Incomparable Christ

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Colossians 2, as we continue our study of Paul's letter. You will remember in our previous study, particularly in chapter 1 that we have emphasized Paul's focus on the person and work of Christ. There are people in Colossae who are teaching the Christians there that what they believe about Christ is fine, but if...
