Perspective on Possessions (Luke 12:13-48)

While Jesus is in the midst of a serious warning with regard to blaspheming the Holy Spirit, a man speaks up demanding that Christ intervene in his family squabble over the inheritance. Most likely, the man's father had died and he probably was owed some of the inheritance, but Jesus is not as interested in whether this man was in the right or wrong as He is in the man's a...

Reinforcing Foundations: Missions (Isaiah 6; 2 Corinthians 5)

In our church covenant, after expressing our commitment to give ourselves daily to God and then expressing our commitment to give ourselves to each other as the family of God, we then express our commitment to give ourselves as light and salt in this dark world, that those who are strangers to God may see our good works and glorify our Father who is in heaven. The order of...

Reinforcing Foundations: Fellowship (Hebrews 10:1-25)

God has spoken to us in the clearest and best way imaginable, through His Son. The writer of Hebrews makes every effort to show that Jesus Christ is the best communication of God to us, demonstrating through comparisons and contrasts that He is unquestionably supreme. In the first chapter alone the letter to the Hebrews reveals that He has a limitless inheritance as God's ...

Reinforcing Foundations: Prayer (Exodus 17)

Like water to fish, milk to an infant, and oxygen to our lungs, prayer is vital to the Christian. However, because we are so reluctant to humility, dependency, and honesty, prayer is the most difficult thing we will do in the Christian life. In John Bunyan's words, "Prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectional pouring out of the soul to God, through Christ, by the strength o...

Reinforcing Foundations: Bible (Psalm 19)

One of the unquestionable foundations of the Christian life is the seeking of the Lord in the Bible. Whether you are a church member, a regular attender, a seeker or inquirer of the Faith, a child, a disinterested bystander, or just neglectful, giving greater attention to God's Word and its application in your life will profit you. In Psalm 19, there are three revelations ...

Pharisees, Legalists, and Hypocrites (Luke 11:37-12:12)

Judging from what Jesus teaches in this section of Luke, the biggest danger we face as a church is being theologically informed, religiously active, morally conservative people whose hearts are far from God. Jesus argues that there is nothing more dangerous than pharisaism, legalism, and hypocrisy. When Jesus neglected the ceremonial washing before the meal, it was not bec...

Saved by Grace, Living with Grace

Saved by Grace, Living with GraceSermon Link As Sinclair Ferguson writes, being amazed by God’s grace is a sign of spiritual vitality, and we are motivated to live to the glory of God as we respond to His glorious grace (By Grace Alone, pp. 14-15). It is important that we think on what the grace of God has done to us, so that we may be encouraged to live graciously ...

Hope (Isaiah 6-9)

The times in which we live are not unlike other times, though we often mistakenly assume they are because of pride or a lack of historical knowledge. The fact is, God has always been an unchanging constant, and humankind from the time of Adam's awful fall has always been sinful. Measuring ourselves against the only real constant, which is God Himself, apart from Christ we ...

Knowledge of God

When we read any passage of Scripture, we must first try to understand what the passage tells us about who God is. Specifically, we should seek to understand what it tells us about God in light of the Gospel. Without seeing God's attributes through the lens of the Gospel, His holiness terrifies us and His righteousness condemns us. However, when we see in the Gospel that G...

The One Thing Missing: The Rich Young Ruler (Mark 10:17-31)

The man in this account is rich (Mark 10:22), he is young (Matt 19:20), and His is a powerful ruler (Luke 18:18). He had the three things everyone wants! Money will buy fun, prestige, security, and so-called friends. Youth means a supple body and a bright and active mind. Adding power to that list, he had respectability and status among the people. In short, this man had e...
