Sunday, June 25, 2017 Sermon Prep for Psalm 19

“Prayer is answering speech. God’s Word has not done its complete work until it evokes an answer from us. All our answers are prayers. The Psalms train us in this answering speech, this language that responds to all God’s creating and saving words targeted to our lives.” “We know almost nothing of the circumstances in […]

The Psalter is a book of prayers rather than a prayer book. Its words leap to the page from the heart of man, racked by pain, jubilant with joy, despairing, aspiring, questioning, worshiping, but never ceasing to reach for God. The world changes, knowledge grows, but the heart of man remains as it has always […]

And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. ACTS 2:47 This verse is a bit unsettling, isn’t it? Intimidating even. Who ever heard of such a church nowadays? It does remind us though, of what is possible when God’s people are awakened. Do you long for such a day? Just […]

“It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” ACTS 26:14 Testifying in front of King Agrippa, Paul recounted his conversion on the Damascus road and those words from the Lord Jesus himself that told him his resistance was a losing battle. He was a marked man. Almighty God was determined to get him […]

They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might. 2 THESSALONIANS 1:9 In The Great Divorce, C. S. Lewis wrote, “There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those […]

Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. ACTS 17:11 Isn’t it curious that Luke would make this comparison? Clearly the Berean Jews stood out to him as […]

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any […]

He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to […]
