Sermons from July 2009

God’s Great Mercy

2 Corinthians 5:21 In this message, we see the working out of God’s grace, specifically in the Atonement. God the Father out of His infinite love gave His only begotten Son, who knew no sin, to be sin on behalf of His people, that He might make them righteous in His eyes.

The Promised Land

2 Samuel 8 This morning, we see the Lord use David to conquer the remaining land He promised to give Abraham and His people. This was a picture of what Jesus would do in subduing all His enemies and ruling as King over all God’s creation.

The Davidic Covenant

2 Samuel 7 We consider another way in which the Lord advanced His work of salvation in David’s days: by His giving to David the fifth revelation of the Covenant of Grace. David sets his heart on building a house for God, but God tells David that it is His intentio

Justification by Grace through Faith Alone

Isaiah 55:1-7 This evening, we consider this question: If it is so plain in Scripture that our works are the best evidence that we are saved, then why are there so many theologians and pastors today who deny this and teach that works aren’t necessary?

The Word of God, Part 1

We begin a new series in which we will study the basics of the Christian Faith, of Reformed theology and the distinctive elements of the OPC. This morning we deal with general and special revelation, together with the inspiration of the Scriptures.

The Only Evidence

Matthew 25:31-46 We reflect on another argument given by Jonathan Edwards to show the importance of good works: it is on the basis of our works that the final judgment will be conducted and our eternal destinies determined.

The Sweet Psalmist of Israel

2 Samuel 23:1-8 We consider another great leap forward in God’s revelation to His Church: the Psalms David wrote. The Psalms not only contain many prophecies about Christ, but the Lord also appointed them to be used in worship…
