Sermons from November 2007

The First Judges

Judges 3 We review the lives of Othniel and Ehud and examine how their characteristics and the circumstances in which God raised them up and used them can serve as examples for us as Christians. We are particularly challenged to see how it is that we may serve God

Results of Declining Zeal

Judges 1-2 We begin a short series in the book of Judges by examining the chronology of the events portrayed in the book and then focusing on the spiritual decline of the nation and its causes. We are challenged to examine ourselves carefully…

A True Believer Confesses His Sins

1 John 1:8-10 We continue our study of the marks of grace by examining the subject of confession. Having defined what is meant by true confession of sin, we see that only a true believer will actually do this and seek to turn away from his or her sin.

The Sermon on Mars Hill

Acts 17:16-34 While Paul is waiting in Athens for Silas and Timothy, he is offended by the number of idols and false gods being worshiped. He begins to speak out against them, and is challenged by the Epicureans and the Stoics.

A True Believer Keeps God’s Commandments

1 John 2:3-6 Continuing our series which looks at those things that are true of true believers and must be present in their lives to one degree or another, we see from this passage that the true Christian will love the commandments of God.

Examine the Scriptures

Acts 17:10-15 Paul, Silas and Timothy move on from Thessolonica and come to Berea. We see the familiar pattern repeated – the persistence of the missionaries despite affliction and persecution, the good reception of some and the hatred and opposition of others.

Adoption – WCF Chapter 12, Part 1

We begin a study of Chapter 12 of the Westminster Confession of Faith, in which we see that those who have been justified through faith in Jesus Christ have also been adopted into God’s family and enjoy all the rights and privileges of children.
