A Very Present Help in Trouble

We continue in our evening sermons to consider a psalm of encouragement for the church. As we consider Psalm 46 we see the comfort and encouragement that comes from knowing that God has promised to be with his church. We will consider what this means for us and how we should be encouraged and emboldened…

An Urgent Appeal to Unity

After three chapters of gospel exposition where Paul emphasized the church as the New Creation Temple of God, he begins his exhortation with this urgent call to unity. In light of all that he has said, this is the first application that we should take to heart. We are called not simply to an individual…

A Psalm of Preparation for Spiritual Warfare

After completing our study of the book of Leviticus, we will have a short series on significant psalms. Today, we’ll be considering Psalm five, which I am calling “A Psalm of Preparation for Spiritual Warfare.” In this psalm, we see the two ways or “two sides” of the spiritual battle. And we are reminded the…

The Grand Doxology

Our text marks the transition from gospel exposition to Paul’s application, which will begin in chapter four.  Just like in the book of Romans, Paul ends his exposition of gospel blessing with a doxology (praise to God) (see Romans 11:33-36). Paul is encouraging us to enter into his praise and to see God’s power displayed…

We will consider the faithfulness of God in the history of Israel and how we can know the blessings…

A Prayer of the New Covenant Temple (PT. 1)

Ephesians 3:14-19 (ESV) For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may…
