When Faith Falters

In Genesis 12, faithfulness and fearfulness are the alternating expressions of Abram's life. This back and forth of faith and fear is the common pinch-point-of-life that we share with him. Even so, this passage isn't ultimately about Abram's faith that we're to try and pattern. It's about the grace and keeping power of God, as we see how patient he is with Abram's faults and fears.

To Those Far Off

As the apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 2:12, Gentile people were once "separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world" (ESV). In Mark 7:24-8:10, however, we see that Jesus goes to the Gentiles, bringing His Kingdom to them, so that those who were "far off" (Ephesians 2:17, ESV) might experience the blessings of that Kingdom.

As the Pharisees and scribes gather to Jesus in Mark 7:1-23, Jesus answers their questions about external regulations, not in a simple straight forward way, but by answering the deeper question of what is going on in heir heart. In this passage, Jesus exposes the danger of traditions and the defilement of the heart, and shows that true guilt and defilement can only be dealt with in the heart, by the blood of Jesus ..read more

After spending 12 chapters exploring the meaning of life, what is the Preacher's conclusion? What should we be doing with the life that we have? In Ecclesiastes 12:9-14, after telling us a little bit about himself as the author, and about the book he has written, he concludes his book by relating “the end of the matter" (Eccl. 12:13, ESV).

Be Bold!

We live in an uncertain world where as James 4 says, we do not know what is going to happen tomorrow. How should we respond to this? Should we circle the wagons and keep our boats in the harbor, lest something unfortunate happen to us? In Ecclesiastes 11:1-6, the Preacher tells us to do the exact opposite. He tells us to invest boldly and take risks. Title from Derek Kidner.

Hope for the Living

In Ecclesiastes 3, the preacher takes a step back and examines life once again. And as he examines life, he gives us a framework for how we can understand our lives while we live under the sun. The framework that we find in this passage is that as we submit to God's sovereignty, we can consider death, enjoy life, and seek to live wisely. July 17, 2023 ..read more

Rich & Weary

What is the good life? Can getting more stuff and money deliver us a life full of meaning and satisfaction? Our culture seems to think so. But in Ecclesiastes 5:8-6:12, we find that the Preacher tells us that money only brings more problems, and that it cannot satisfy us. It leaves, in the words of George Herbert, "Rich and weary."

I Was Made To Love Him

In Deuteronomy 6, Moses gives the Israelites the greatest commandment: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” In this sermon, guest preacher Mac Matthews explains that the extent to which we believe what the Scriptures say about who God is, will be reflected in our growing love for him. If you are in Christ, then you have a new master—one who has vanquished sin’s penalty and power, and set us free to answer the ultimate call of our lives—to love God with our whole hearts all of our days, and to teach others to do the same.

Our Mad World

"I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take, when people run in circles, it’s a very, very mad world, mad world.” This line, from the song "Mad World" sung by Gary Jules (originally a Tears for Fears song), is a fitting one for the book of Ecclesiastes, and particularly chapter 4. In this chapter, as Douglas O'Donnell helps to point out, the Preacher notices four disquieting features of our world: oppression, envy, loneliness, and impermanence. And while he gives us a few helpful ways of dealing with our world, this chapter leaves us longing for a new world in which these things no lon ..read more

Fresh off returning from a ministry trip, Jesus' apostles are invited by him to get away and rest, only to be interrupted by a crowd. In the scenes that unfold in Mark 6:30-56, Jesus reveals both his power to do anything he wants, but also his compassion and mercy; his willingness to act on behalf of those he loves.
