Turn with me in your Bible to Matthew 22. In our last message on this parable of the wedding feast, we discovered that Jesus spoke this parable in the context of hostility. The chief priests and Pharisees were seeking to kill Jesus. He had entered Jerusalem for the Passover and was teaching the people and […]

It’s always a privilege to be invited to some special occasion. You can probably think of the excitement associated with finding out that you had been invited to some sort of event: A friend’s birthday party or The wedding of someone you cared about or The retirement party of a co-worker. Being invited to things […]

The concept of justice is one that everyone subscribes to – at least, when it turns out for their benefit. You want to be able to go to the store and weigh-out a pound of produce and be charged accordingly – no more and no less. When you go to the gas station you want […]

Sermon for Children from Luke 2:40-52

All of you in this room are children. Even I’m a child – because I have parents. I don’t live in their home anymore, but I still recognize that I am their child and they are my parents. But many years ago, I did live in their house. I did eat their food. They did […]

We’re told in the New Testament that we are supposed to “count it all joy” when we fall into various trials. We’re commanded to not think it a strange thing when we encounter trials in our life. Indeed, even our Lord Jesus Christ was tried and tested and tempted during his time on this earth. […]

Psalm 55 22 Sermon / 23 Meaning

But eventually we need to come to the point that David does in verses 22 and 23 where he encourages both himself and others to trust the Lord. 22 {Cast/Throw} {thy burden/your cares} upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he {shall never suffer/will never allow/will never let} the {righteous/godly} {to be moved/to be […]

Psalm 55 20-21 Meaning / Commentary

And you might think that expressing confidence and faith in the Lord will just kind of settle you permanently. But sometimes it will actually throw you back into convulsions as you recall your problem and want to elaborate on it to the Lord, as David does in the rest of verse 19 and verses 20 […]

Psalm 55 16-17 Meaning

Now, David next contrasts the kind of treatment he deserves versus what this betrayer and his buddies deserve in verses 15-17. 15 {Let/May} death {seize upon/come deceitfully upon/destroy/take by surprise} {them/my enemy}, {and let them/may they} go down {quick/alive} {into/to} {hell/Sheol/the grave}: for {wickedness/evil} is in their {dwellings/dwelling}, {and among them/in their midst}. 16 {As […]
