Psalm 1: Walking in the Path of the Righteous Print E-mail

There are only two paths in life according to the Scriptures: the path of the righteous and the path of the wicked.  Although the text may identify the two using different language at times (the path of the sheep versus the path of the goats or the path of the godly versus the path of the ungodly), in the end, there are only two paths.  This morning we all are separated by these two paths.  Either we are walking on the path of righteousness or we are walking on the path of wickedness.  Either we are repenting of our sins and trusting in Christ as our Savior or we are continuing in our rebellion and trusting in ourselves for salvation.  In the end, there are only two paths.  Thus, one simple question is appropriate: which path are you on?  Which path are you walking this morning?

Matt 26-28: The Defeat of Death by the King Print E-mail

The events we are looking at this morning are no less than the pinnacle of all history.  There is no more important or significant event in the history of the world than the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  All of history relates to the cross, even as the very dating of history revolves around the birth of Christ.  These events are the climactic point of each of the gospels.  The telling of the life of Jesus is climaxed at the telling of his death.  Everything that happened before these events were pointing towards it; and everything that has happened since is impacted by it.  Indeed, this morning our text covers the three most important days and two most important events in all the history of the world.

Matt 24-25: Preparing for the King's Return Print E-mail

There is no lack of interest in the Second Coming of Christ and the end of the world.  Whether it be books (the Left Behind series), television programs (there was a recent series on end times events entitled Revelations), or movies, it seems that people in general are very interested in the Last Days.  They want to know what is going to happen and, even more, when it is going to happen.  And this is no new occurrence.  Ever since Christ came the first time, and even before, there has been an interest in how the history of the world will come to a close.

Matt 21-23: The Response of the King to Opposition Print E-mail

How should we respond to opposition against the Kingdom of God?  We see in the New Testament that there is a war going on.  It is a war between the domain of darkness and the Kingdom of the Light.  It is real.  The enemy is real.  He is spending all his energies to oppose the Kingdom of Christ.  He is not flesh and bone, but he is real.  As Paul tells us, we wrestle against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places (Ephesians 5:12).  Thus, I return to my original question: how are we to respond to such opposition from the enemy?

Matt 19-20: Contrasts Between the Kingdom and the World Print E-mail

In preparation for our Sunday night menís Bible study that begins tonight, I listened to the author of our book, John Piper, preach a sermon dealing with his book Donít Waste Your Life.  In the sermon, Piper contrasted two stories.  The first was a story about two retired women, both approaching the age of eighty, who had given their lives to missions and were serving in a foreign country, when the car they were driving skidded off a mountain road and plunged them to their death.  The second story was about a couple who had retired early, moved to Florida, and were spending their last years on the earth boating, playing softball, and collecting sea shells.

Matt 16-18: Our Relationship to the King and His Followers Print E-mail

When I was in college I was obsessed with the idea of getting married.  Lee, my former pastor and I, would sit around all the time talking about how we wanted to find the perfect girl and make her our wife.  When Lee was married a week after our graduation, needless to say, I was left wanting marriage even more.  I had received teaching on marriage.  I had seen good examples of great marriages.  I had friends who were getting married left and right.  All this left me anxious about marriage and longing for such a relationship.
