Resources on Salvation

I think Psalm 40 shows us something. Psalm 40 shows us David reflecting on God’s past deliverance and drawing conclusions that help him trust God in his present troubles. I think the psalm breaks that way. Around verse 11, David begins to talk about the present. Up until that time, he’s talking about the past. Let’s remember, with David, God’s past deliverance.

Rescue

As you have been hearing, we are celebrating the coming of the Lord Jesus who came on a rescue mission to save us from our sin and guilt and to reconcile us to God. And to help us think about the Biblical teaching on that point, I want to invite you if you would to take your Bibles in hand and to turn with me to Matthew's gospel, chapter 1. We looked...

Christmas is a time for family. When we were kids, each Christmas in my family home, my brother and I would get up insufferably early. We usually would have to be sent back to bed two or three times before we were finally allowed out of our rooms. And then we’d all go downstairs and have breakfast. We were not allowed to touch the presents under the tree...

Before we read, something to consider. Many of you know this; I talk about this a lot. My dad is a football coach. And my favorite team, my all-time favorite team that he coached was the 1995 Arkansas Razorbacks. You remember this team? I’m just joking; nobody remembers this team! But my dad, he was the Offensive Coordinator, and the quarterback was Barry Lunney Jr. The running back...

If you were with us last Lord’s Day Evening, we had a presbytery-wide celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. And the service was structured around the five Solas; those five slogans, almost, that summarized many of the central concerns of the Reformation. Since tonight I have a stand-alone message to preach – next Lord’s Day Evening we’ll have Dr. John Blanchard with us – I thought...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

One of the great actors of the last generation that many of you will know is Robert Redford. He was one of those heart-throbs. Everybody loved him. And when he was at the peak of his success, he was noticed by a woman in a hotel lobby – and he was one of those guys who was voted “Best Looking Man Alive” like twenty-six times or something like that –...

Advent Songs

If you would please take a copy of the Scriptures and turn with me in them to page 857 in the church Bibles to Luke’s gospel, chapter 2; reading verses 21 through 35. I was handed a newspaper cutting and a suggestion from one of our senior elders this morning in light of the season and the excitement surrounding it that I ought to preach on...

Please take your Bibles in hand and turn with me to Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. If you’re using one of our church Bibles you’ll find that on page 976. We had been working our way through the book of Exodus. As we completed chapter 18 last week, we came to a natural break before the next segment of the story where God reveals His law to Moses...

Salvation Belongs to the Lord

Glad to be here with you tonight to open God’s Word.  If you would, take your copies of God’s Word and turn to Psalm 67, or you can look on the back of the prayer guide; it will be printed on there.  Psalm 67.  And before we read God’s Word let’s go to Him in prayer and ask for His help.

Our Lord and...
