Psalm 25 – Trusting and Remembering the Faithfulness of God

Are you obsessed by something? You will probably say, “No, by nothing,” but all of us are obsessed by something— usually by ourselves, or, if we are Christians, by our own experience of the Christian life. But the psalmist says that we are to be obsessed by God. The abiding awareness of the Christian life […]

Psalm 24 – The Honor Deserved the Lord of Glory

He that abides in Christ the Crucified One, learns to know what it is to be crucified with Him, and in Him to be indeed dead unto sin. He that abides in Christ the Risen and Glorified One, becomes in the same way partaker of His resurrection life, and of the glory with which He […]

Psalm 23 – God Is Our Gracious Provision, Strong Provider, and Eternally Present

The things you say about yourself, about God, and about life are very, very important because they are formative of the way you act and react to the things God places in your life. In those silent and private conversations that you have with you, you are remembering God’s grace or you’re not. When you […]

Easter 2018 – Acts 2:24 – The Grave Couldn’t Hold Jesus

Satan conspired with Judas, Pilate, and the Jewish leaders to kill the Author of life, but God raised him from the dead (Acts 3:15), “loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it” (Acts 2:24). And if you believe in him, death cannot hold you either: “Jesus […]

2 Kings 7:1-9 – When Jesus is Your Treasure, You Share That Treasure with Others

I don’t know of a finer illustration of what it is to be a preacher, and what it is to be a witness, and what it is to be a Christian. We are not men who are theorizing, and we are not philosophizing. We are saying to sinners, “There is a way that a man […]

Matthew 22:34-40 – Christ is the Treasure of the Church Scattered

As God’s image-bearers (Genesis 1:26), we are designed to love God and others in the same way that God loves God and others. God, being the most pure, perfect, powerful, and precious entity in existence, must love himself most in order to love everything else best, since everything else is “from him and through him […]

Colossians 3:16-17 – Christ is the Treasure of the Church Gathered

Perhaps you have heard someone say something like, “I love God but I’m not really into church.” Or “I don’t need to go to church to worship God; it’s more of a private thing for me.”   There’s a common misconception, a common misunderstanding, that our faith is private. There’s confusion between a private faith […]

Philippians 3:7-11 – Our Supreme Treasure is God Alone

The very high value that the apostle Paul set upon the Savior, is most palpable, when he speaks of winning Him. This shows that the Savior held the same place in Paul’s esteem as the crown did in the esteem of the runner at the Olympic games. To gain that crown, the competitor strained every […]

Mark 6:14-19 – The Cost of Pursuing Holiness

We see how boldly a faithful minister of God ought to rebuke sin. John the Baptist spoke plainly to Herod about the wickedness of his life. He did not excuse himself under the plea that it was imprudent, or impolitic, or untimely, or useless to speak out. He did not say smooth things, and palliate the […]

Mark 6:1-13 – The Peril of Unbelief

It’s lovely to see how gracious the Lord Jesus is to the hardest of hearts, isn’t it? It is wonderful to know that the Lord Jesus, even now, to the hardest heart in this congregation is reaching out again – and yet, that said, we can never and ought never to presume upon His gracious […]
