Sermons from September 2009
The Testimony of Jesus
1 Peter 1:10-12 We see how the Lord raised up prophets from the time of Uzziah onward to preach His Gospel to His people.
The Christian Life, Part 4
We continue our consideration of the place and the importance of the 10 Commandments in the life of the believer.
Grow in Grace and Knowledge
2 Peter 3:17-18 Grace, properly understood, will lead to greater knowledge – a closer relationship with God through Christ. But there is a knowledge that is necessary to bring this relationship about.
Why Does God Send Trials?
James 1:1-4 We consider three points as we seek to answer the question, „Why does the Lord send trials?„: *First, what is a trial? *Second, why does God send trials? *And third, what should we do when He sends them?
There Is None But You to Help
2 Chronicles 14:11 We consider how the Lord preserved the tribe of Judah at the time of king Asa, since this was the tribe through which the Messiah would come.
The Christian Life, Part 3
We continue our review of the Ten Commandments, seeing how they are still binding upon the believer today. The believer does not keep them to earn merit with God, but out of love for Him.
God Preserves the True Religion
2 Chronicles 34 We consider what the Lord did to put the brakes on the spiritual descent of the Israelites, how He planned to raise them up again, and how these things can be useful for us today for the same purpose.
The Christian Life, Part 2
We continue our survey of the Ten Commandments as a rule for Christian living.
Progress through Declension
John 3:30 Towards the end of his life, Solomon began to compromise: he began worshiping false gods because he had married so many foreign wives. In doing this, he sowed the seeds of division in his kingdom and the eventual exile of Judah to Babylon.
The Christian Life, Part 1
We look at the essential elements of the Christian Life, as we continue our series on the fundamentals of the faith.
