Date: 07/17/2022

Preacher: Josh Peglow, pastor

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:3-5

Description:

I could not have begun to love thee hadst thou not

first loved me,

or been willing unless thou hadst first made me so.

O that such a crown should fit the head of

such a sinner!

…And so goes —but a stanza of— a rich, Truth-soaked Puritan Prayer.*

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, in his first official sermon as pastor, Josh Peglow takes to the pulpit to illuminate a marvelous hope — a marvelous truth —  we find in scripture. 

It’s a truth and hope that shows us that God is to be blessed for His work in bringing about an unassailable salvation to His heavenly people. 

And the Puritan Prayer? Well, it encapsulates this reality beautifully:

Let thy love draw me nearer to thyself,

wean me from sin, mortify me to this world,

and make me ready for my departure hence.

Secure me by thy grace as I sail across this

Trust God, Not Man [Jeremiah 17:5-8]

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/27/2022

Preacher: Josh Peglow, guest preacher

Key Text: Jeremiah 17:5-8

Description:

Thus says the Lord,

Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind

And makes flesh his strength,

And whose heart turns away from the Lord.

For he will be like a bush in the desert

And will not see when prosperity comes,

But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness,

A land of salt without inhabitant. [Jeremiah 17:5-6]

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Josh Peglow returns to our pulpit and opens the book of Jeremiah… a book that addresses a point we all struggle with: putting our trust in man versus God.

Why?

Because Jeremiah struggled with it too.

For Jeremiah exhorts that the Lord says:

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord

And whose trust is the Lord.

For he will be like a tree planted by the water,

That extends its roots by a stream

And will not fear when the heat comes;

But its leaves will be green,

And it will not be anxious in a year of drought

Nor cease to yield fruit. [Jeremiah 17:7-8]
