Description: This passage in Matthew is that old old story that we have know since childhood. The baby, the shepherds, the Magi, the special star, and the gifts. It was special to us as children, but now as adults we too often tend to gloss over it. Today let’s take time to explore it — to soak in it a bit –to see the marvel and wonder of God becoming a man so that He could live out a sinless life and then give that life on the cross for us.
Description: Hundreds of people each hour enter a Christless eternity. Christians are called, just as Moses was, to go and set people free. Slavery to Egypt or modern day slavery to sin, each require someone to ‘go and tell’ the capatives that there is a Redeemer.
Description: The battle plan was reveiled in Genesis, but the conclusion doesn’t happen until the end of the Book of Revelation. It’s the longest battle in history and the only one on record where the General does all the fighting.
Description: There are many thousands of ‘Born Again’ Christians who lack confidence in their salvation. The expression, ‘eternal security’ is beyond their reach. This position of doubt can only rob them of peace and joy, and detract from their witness to the unsaved.
Description: Captain Bligh’s experience on the Bounty has been refered to as the “greatest mutiny of all times.” However, we need to remember that there was a far greater mutiny that happened before time even began. In today’s sermon we will look at the Scriptural account of Satan being cast from Heaven.
Description: It would be no wonder if an unholy God could love unholy men, but that the God whose name is Holy, could love beings so utterly sinful as we are, that is the wonder of eternity. There are many deep mysteries in the Bible, but no other so profuound as this. (taken from ‘What the Bible teaches’ by R. A. Torrey)
Description: Matthew 16:15 presents the most pivitol and important question in all of Christendom. Get this wrong and you will be in that group that say, “Lord, we did many things in your name.” Jesus will reply, “Depart from Me for I never knew you.” Get the question correct and you will hear, ‘Well done, enter into your reward.”
Description: The Book of Esther teaches the providence of God. God saw beforehand what the people would do and even though they were out of the will of God by not going back to their homeland, they were not beyond His care. Providence involves God providing, directing, and leading people who sometimes do not want to be led. The infinite wisdom, continuing providence, and overwhelming power of God in the preservation of His people in fulfilling His covenant with them is displayed beautiful in this book. Even the most insignificant events and ordinary happenings of the world with its rulers and subjects are appointed and directed by God to affect His purposes.
Description: God is a desinger, builder, and artist. We read about the potter who has the option or remaking a vessel that doesn’t please him or is not suited for the intended use. God too can take mankind and begin again, to redesign, and reform man into a second edition.
Description: We are commissioned and designed by God to work. These daily assingments are needed to maintain both our health and often our financial needs. Those that are unable to work are to be looked after by believers who seek to follow Christ’s teaching to look after the widows, orphans, and the needy.
Description: The absolute holiness of God is contrasted in today’s message with the depravity of man. We see that God has no patience with sin or sinners. His judgement is always consistent with a holy God whose purity demands justice.
Description: The contrast of darkness with light is easily described but in our life it can make days that are hard to live through. Difficult and challenging situations develop in and around each of us. Today we shall look at how some Bible characters dealt with darkness.
Description: There are very clear examples in Scripture that show God’s wonderful sovereign hand leading, teaching, and preparing His children for the task He is going to bring before them. In today’s message we will look at several of these examples and then reference our own lives and perhaps discern what He is preparing us to do.
