Sermons from November 2008
John 17 Since the work of the Spirit in producing the marks of grace in us is to make us like Jesus, we consider Christ as our great Example and the One by whom we can compare ourselves to see if we have this grace ourselves.
We begin a study in chapter 29 of the Westminster Confession of Faith: Of the Lord’s Supper. We answer the following questions: *When did Christ institute the Lord’s Supper? *How long and why are we to observe it? *What is the Lord’s Supper?
Genesis 12:1-3 After the time of the flood, Abraham is called out of Ur of the Chaldeans to Canaan. This is God further narrowing the line through which Jesus the Messiah comes.
1 Samuel 7:1-14 We reflect on the account of Samuel erecting Ebenezer, the ‘Stone of Help’ at the site of the victory God gave Israel over the Philistines – at the very place where earlier the Ark of the Covenant had been lost.
Philippians 3:7-10 We have seen that love is the foremost of the Marks of Grace that only the children of God possess and that all other fruits and graces flow from it. Tonight we consider David and Paul as examples of men who manifested this great affection for God.
Genesis 11:1-9 Relatively few years after the flood, the world has apparently forgotten the judgment of the flood and God’s mercy to Noah’s family. It has set itself up in opposition to God and His will and may even have begun to worship other gods. Once again, God act
We conclude our study in chapter 28 of the Westminster Confession of Faith: Of Baptism.

Genesis 6-9 Continuing our survey of the Lord’s redemptive purposes in the Scriptures, we come to the account of the flood.
We continue to consider who should be given the sign of baptism.
Deuteronomy 6:4-6 Continuing our consideration of the marks of grace, and particularly of Edward’s teaching on religious affections
Genesis 4, 6:1-6 After the revival of the time of Enoch, the godly line begins to intermarry with the ungodly in the world and the church weakens through compromise. Times grow increasingly dark and the Lord promises judgment.
