Romans: The Rebel's Foolish Exchange

1/20/2019

Originally Presented on August 13th, 2006. Sermon Reading: Romans 1:21-28 The overarching truth stressed in Romans 1-3 flies in the face of the popular understanding of the nature of man. The widely-held view of man today is that he is basically good. It is outside influences which corrupts his life. Romans teaches us that man is not basically good. On the contrary, he is basically evil . . . a rebel against his Creator. The root of all evil (greed, malice, envy, ingratitude,...

Originally Presented on August 6th, 2006. Scripture Reading: Romans 1:18-21 Following the introduction of the epistle to the Romans in the first 17 verses of the book, Romans 1:18 begins the first major section of a tightly-knit argument which unfolds the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. After sounding the theme of the book . . . the righteousness of God which justifies people who have faith in Christ . . . Paul proceeds to begin to unfold that wondrous truth. The first major section of...

Colossians: Made Alive In Christ

1/13/2019
More
Scripture Reading: Colossians 2:11-13 The best way to confront falsehood is to declare the truth. In Colossians, in order to rectify false teaching, Paul exalts the truth about Christ. Christ is lauded as the Creator of all things, Lord of all things, head of the church, and the revelation of God because in Christ the fullness of deity resides. In today's passage we see the truth of Christ's salvation. Colossians 2:11-13 describe what Christ has done in Christians and 2;14,15 describe...

Romans: The Wrath of God

Originally Presented on July 30, 2006. Scripture Reading: Romans 1:8-25 A jealous and avenging God is the LORD; The LORD is avenging and wrathful. The LORD takes vengeance on His adversaries, And He reserves wrath for His enemies. Nahum 1:2 He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on Him. John 3:36 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who...

Colossians: Fullness of Deity

1/6/2019
More
Scipture Reading: Colossians 2:8-10 In this section Paul directly addresses the heretical teaching that had been plaguing the Colossian church. He begins by warning the believers … "See to it that no one takes you captive . . ." (Col 2:8). The King James translation better captures the strength of this exhortation … "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy." In the first century, as in our century, there were people who undermined the truth of Christ and actually led people...

Romans: The Righteousness of God

12/30/2018
More
Originally Presented on July 23, 2006. Scripture Reading: Romans 1:16-17 Romans 1:17 heralds the theme of the book of Romans, namely 'the righteousness of God.' This phrase is so full of meaning that it is fair to say that the rest of the epistle was written to explain it. Some form of the word 'right' is found 65 times in Romans. The phrase 'the righteousness of God' describes not so much an attribute of God, but an activity of God . . . whereby He declares righteous those who trust in...

Colossians: Rooted and Built Up In Christ

12/30/2018
More
Scripture Reading: Colossians 2:1-7 This paragraph reveals Paul's great concern for the people in Colossae and Laodicea. What makes this particularly interesting is that Paul had not been to those places. The people he is so concerned about are people he had only heard about, but never met. He writes this letter "that their hearts may be encouraged" (Col 2:2). There are at least three paths to the encouragement that Paul has in mind. First, they can be encouraged by Paul's example of...

Romans: In Debt to All

12/23/2018
More
Originally Presented on July 16, 2006. Scripture Reading: Romans 1:8-15 At the outset of the letter to the Christians in Rome, Paul has the delicate task of introducing himself and introducing his theological treatise. In Romans 1:8-15 the apostle introduces himself to a community he had never seen. His statements are very instructive as to how we should view our congregation here at Bethel and how we should view our responsibility to the world around us. First Paul draws back the...

Advent - Day 4: A Child is Born: The Mighty God

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 9:1-7 Part of Isaiah's message was the terrifying report of judgment on the people of Israel. They had been repeatedly unfaithful to God and He judged them severely. Isaiah 8:22 speaks of "distress and darkness" and "the gloom of anguish." And all of it came upon these wayward people in the form of bitter captivity in Assyria and in Babylon. But then chapter 9 speaks of One who would pierce the gloom. Isaiah 9:2,3 declare, "The people who walked in darkness have...

Romans: The Gospel of God

12/16/2018

Originally Presented on July 9, 2006. Scripture Reading: Romans 1:1-7 The first paragraph of Romans summarizes the main topic of the letter, namely the gospel of God (Rom 1:1). Wondrous truths about the gospel are indicated in these verses. First, it is the gospel of God. God is the source and means and goal of the gospel. Romans 11:36 eloquently declares this grand reality: "For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things." Second, the gospel of God was promised and predicted...

Advent - Day 3: Mary's Song, The Wonder of Grace

12/16/2018

Scripture Reading: Luke 1:46-55 Mary’s exultation in God in this wonderful poem is both passionate and insightful. And we have the same God. Even though for her to bear the Messiah is a unique event, it is possible for us to know the same awe and joy that she experienced. For us to feel what Mary felt we must see, with the eyes of our soul, what she saw and we must deeply know the God that she knew. It is significant that Mary’s song does not focus on herself. The center of these...

Romans: The Church at Rome: Called and Beloved

12/9/2018
More
Originally Presented on July 2, 2006. Scripture Reading: Romans 1:6,7 The church at Rome was not founded by Paul and he had never visited these Christians though he had desired to (Rom 1:13; 15:22-24). The church was probably a result of people from Rome who were in Jerusalem and were converted to Christ during the celebration of Pentecost in Acts 2 (Acts 2:10). The church in Rome was comprised of both Jews and Gentiles and this letter has both groups in mind (cf. Jews - Rom 4:1; 7:1;...

Scripture Reading: Luke 1:46-55 To a wide-eyed 5 year old, Christmas is lights and toys and brightly-wrapped boxes under a living room tree. To a retailer it is increased sales and profits. To a busy housewife Christmas is a fatiguing schedule of shopping, decorating, and cooking. But to Mary, Jesus' mother, the birth of Christ was an occasion for an impassioned declaration of unbridled joy. Her joy is firmly founded on the character and works of God. In her prayers of thanksgiving, Mary...

Romans: The Book that Changed the World

12/2/2018

Originally Presented on June 25, 2006. The New Testament book of Romans is, arguably, the most important book ever written. Samuel Coleridge, 19th century English poet, wrote, "I think that the epistle to the Romans is the most profound work in existence." Scottish Reformer John Knox thought Romans to be "unquestionably the most important theological work in existence." Augustine, Martin Luther, and John Wesley were all converted to Christ by means of the book of Romans. When you...

Guest Pastor Rev. Greg Hands Scripture Reading: 1 Timothy 3:14-16 (ESV) I hope to come to you soon, but I am writing these things to you so that, if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth. Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken...

Colossians: Mature in Christ

11/25/2018
More
Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:28-2:5 This passage describes Paul's struggle to serve Christ and His kingdom, on behalf of the Colossians and the people of Laodicea. What drives Paul, to the point of his willingness to be imprisoned and even to die, is the proclamation of Christ. Christ is portrayed in this passage as God's mystery. Jesus is the ultimate revelation of God to humanity. He is the path to the true knowledge of God. Paul is constrained, as we should be, to make known the...

Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:21-23 This passage says something profound about the nature of the Christian life. It tells us something, about the life of someone whose heart has been changed by God's Spirit. And it tells us something, about the everlasting security of someone whose heart has been changed by God's Spirit. There is also a glorious encouragement here, but the wording of Colossians 1:21-23 must be considered carefully to see the grand statement being made. "And you . . ....

Colossians: The Heart of the Gospel

Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:18-22 This glorious passage about the supremacy of Christ speaks of His relationship to God the Father ("the image of the invisible God" - v 15) … His relationship to creation ("firstborn of [over] all creation" - v 15) … His relationship to the church ("head of the body - v 18). In Christ "all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell" (v 19) "that in everything he might be preeminent" (v 18). The exaltation of Christ in these verses is relevant to our age...

Colossians: Filling Up What is Lacking in Christ's Afflictions

Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:24-29 This passage is a good missions passage because it speaks of making known "how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Col 1:27). The 'mystery' spoken of here is that the Jewish Messiah would actually reach out to non-Jewish people and give them the promise of Abraham … the glory of the kingdom of God. Paul toils with great struggling (Col 1:29) to accomplish the stewardship...
