    Sermons For This Lord's Day (8/23/09)

    The girl's were both feeling ill this morning so we went to my old PC(USA) church here in town (where I am preaching in two weeks) and heard a sermon that was the next in a sermon series on the Lord's Prayer. Her text was Luke 4:1-13. Well not much to say except when you hear a UMC preach you should expect a UMC sermon.

    What did you hear this morning?

    ‎‎""The Christian religion is the religion of sinners, of such as have sinned, and in whom sin in some measure still dwells. The Christian life is a life of continued repentance, humiliation for and mortification of sin, of continual faith in, thankfulness for, and love to the Redeemer, and hopeful joyful expectation of a day of glorious redemption, in which the believer shall be fully and finally acquitted, and sin abolished for ever."
    -- Matthew Henry on 1 John 1:9

    I preached on Philippians 3:12-16, "Eyes on the Prize."

    I. There is a Race to be Run
    A. You Don’t Start at the Finish Line
    B. You Can’t Choose Where to Stop

    II. Run the Race
    A. With Effort
    B. With Focus
    C. With the Goal in Mind

    III. Grace in the Race
    A. God Equips Us
    B. God Calls Us

    Questions for Lunch: (1) What is the danger of being satisfied with our Christian life? (2) What bad things in your past are you tempted to be distracted by? What good things? (3) How can Paul’s thoughts here help us to witness to others?

    "The heart is the main thing in true religion...It is the hinge and turning-point in the condition of man's soul. If the heart is alive to God and quickened by the Spirit, the man is a living Christian. If the heart is dead and has not the Spirit, the man is dead before God." (J.C. Ryle)

    My pastor continued his series on Romans and today the sermon was on Romans 3:21-31.

    The sermon today was on Genesis 37--Joseph is sold into slavery by his brothers.

    The main idea behind the sermon was that God caused Joseph to be sold into slavery in order to save His people from the famine down the road in the same way that God sent Jesus to suffer so that He could be our deliverer.

    Some thoughts from the sermon:

    1) God was silent when Joseph called out to his brothers. God does not always answer our prayers with the immediate action that we expect.
    2) The story of Jospeh in scripture points to the Christ and His deliverance.

    I preached from Luke 6:12 ff. Today's sermon was Jesus' practice of prayer and what that displays to us regarding a life of prayer.

    I preached from Mark 3.31-35 this morning, on the wonder of being called the brothers and sisters of Christ, and this evening on Psalm 129, 'God's people never defeated'.

    In the AM I continued through Exodus with 28:1–2, "The Priesthood of the Lord." My two points were: 1. A Priesthood of the People (v. 1), and 2. A Priesthood Distinct from the People (v. 2). In point one I spoke of the doctrines and uses of the text in terms of God's using the ministry of sinful men to accomplish his purposes. Yet the text speaks of the ceremonial holiness of the priests in their clothing, so it ultimately leads us to a great priest who is without sin, Jesus.

    Tonight I am continuing through the Larger Catechism, preaching on Genesis 1:26–31, with the theme of "God's Work in Creating Man" (Q&A 17).

    There is nothing more ugly than a Christian orthodoxy without understanding or without compassion.

    The true visible church, where God's ordinances are set up as he hath appointed,
    where his word is purely preached, is the most beautiful thing under heaven,
    and there is God's glory set forth and manifested more clearly than in all the Lord's handiwork beside in heaven or earth.

    Today's sermon was about the Prodigal Son in Luke 15. I particularly liked the point he made about it being a picture of our salvation.

    When the prodigal son came to his senses, there were 3 things he planned to say to his father:

    1. Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
    2. And am no more worthy to be called thy son:
    3. Make me as one of thy hired servants.

    When he arrived he only said 2 of the 3 things:

    1. Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight,
    2. And am no more worthy to be called thy son.

    Before he could say the third thing, his father spoke to his servants to bring the robe, etc.

    Salvation is all of grace, there are no works done on our part to earn salvation.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
