Romans: The Chosen and the Hardened

2/16/2020
Originally presented: April 27th, 2008 Scripture Reading: Romans 11:7-10 This passage is another reminder to us that God's ways are both sovereign and often surprising. In this paragraph Paul continues his discussion of the spiritual status of the Jewish people and their future position as God's chosen nation. For the present, God has saved only a remnant of Jewish people (Rom 11:5). Israel, in general, has not sought God by faith in Christ (Rom 9:31-33) and so they have not been saved....

Sermon: Delighting in God

2/16/2020
Scripture Reading: Psalm 111 We are commanded in the Scriptures to delight in God. "Delight yourself in the LORD" (Psa 37:4); "Rejoice in the Lord" (Phil 3:1; 4:4). This joy is one of the characteristics that the Holy Spirit is working in Christians, according to Galatians 5:22-24. This emotion must not be confused with the lightheartedness that comes and goes as our circumstances change. Biblical joy is a weighty delight of heart which is rooted in the unchangeable character of God and His...

Romans: The Integrity of God and the Wonder of Grace

2/9/2020
Romans: The Integrity of God and the Wonder of Grace Originally Presented: April 13th, 2008 Scripture Reading: Romans 11:1-6 In Romans 11 Paul answers the question concerning the future of the people of Israel. Because of Israel's rejection of Jesus Christ and the spiritual deadness of their hearts, most Jews were not being saved. The status of their being lost called into question both the integrity of God and the future of Israel. Paul speaks to both those issues in this chapter. The...

Attribute: Soli Deo Gloria - God's own purpose

2/9/2020
Attribute: Soli Deo Gloria - God's own purpose At the bottom of his musical compositions, Johann Sebastian Bach, would write three capital letters . . . SDG. George Frederic Handel did the same at the end of his writing "The Messiah" oratorio. The letters stood for the Latin words soli Deo gloria . . . glory to God alone. Bach and Handel knew that the purpose for music, like the purpose for all creation, is the glory of the Creator. We know the answer to the well-known first question of...

Romans: Faith Comes By Hearing

2/2/2020
Originally Presented: April 6th, 2008 Scripture Reading: Romans 10:15-21 The question that prompts Paul to write Romans 9-11 is the question of the people of Israel. Paul begins his discussion by asking, in effect, "Why aren't all Jews saved?" To that question he poses two answers, one in chapter 9, from the standpoint of divine purpose in divine sovereignty (unconditional election of some Jews, while passing over others) . . . and one in chapter 10, from the standpoint of human...

Attribute: Sovereignty of God

2/2/2020
Scripture Reading: 1 Chronicles 29:11 Sovereignty … the notion that God is King over His creation and that, as King, He has the right to rule over it. Providence … the outworking of God's sovereignty, by which He sustains His creation and orders the events of history and of our lives to bring about His intended purposes. Extent of God's Sovereignty . . . physical creation - Psa 104:14; Nah 1:3-5; Mt 6:30; Mk 5:45; 8:35-41; Acts 14:17 . . . animal world - Psa 104:21,28; Mt 6:26;...

Romans: God's Riches For All Who Call

1/26/2020
Originally Presented: March 30th, 2008 Scripture Reading: Romans 10:11-15 In discussing the status and future of the Jewish people in light of their rejection of Christ, Paul highlights the wonder that God has included Gentiles in His plan of redemption. Sandwiched in between two 'whoever' quotations (Rom 10:11,13), we read "there is no distinction between Jew and Greek" (Rom 10:12). The statement "Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved" supports the idea that Gentiles,...

Attribute: The Patience of God, Merciful and Gracious, Slow to Anger

1/26/2020
Attribute of God: Patience Not all books on the attributes of God have a separate section or chapter on the patience of God, but Stephen Charnock (1628-1680) in his massive classic The Existence and Attributes of God dedicates 52 pages to the subject. Repeatedly in the Scriptures we see the description of God that is found in Exodus 34:6;7. This is, by the way, God's own description of Himself. When Moses was on Mt. Sinai, conversing with God the following account is given. "The Lord...

Romans: Confessing Jesus as Lord

1/19/2020
Originally Presented: March 16th, 2008 Scripture Reading: Romans 10:9-10 When Jesus came riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, one week before His death, it was a deliberate display of His majesty and provided the Jewish people with an opportunity to make an unambiguous declaration that Jesus is king. That is the point of the Palm Sunday story. It is the proclamation, in no uncertain terms, that Jesus is king. To come to Jesus Christ for forgiveness and life, we must come to Him for who He...

Romans: Chirst: The Goal of the Law

1/12/2020
Originally Presented: March 9th, 2008 Scripture Reading: Romans 10:1-10 In Romans 10, Paul continues his discussion of the people of Israel, lamenting their state of spiritual blindness and self righteousness. Even though the apostle has stated that a man's salvation is solely based on "Him who calls" (Rom 9:11) and on "God who has mercy" (Rom 9:16), nevertheless he prays for the salvation of his countrymen (Rom 10:1). The problem of the Jews is the same problem many people today have....

Romans: Stumbling Over Christ

1/5/2020
Originally Presented: March 2nd, 2008 Scripture Reading: Romans 9:30-33 If the Jews are God's chosen people, then why aren't they all being saved? Is there some deficiency in the promises of God? These are the questions Paul is writing about in Romans 9-11. He presents two answers to the question, "Why aren't all Jews saved?" The first answer is the statement of divine sovereignty in election (Rom 9:6-29). Salvation ultimately depends on God to show mercy and He does not shower all with...

Romans: Sons of the Living God

1/5/2020
Originally Presented: February 17, 2008 Scripture Reading: Romans 9:22-29 Having said that not all the people of Israel are true Israelites (Rom 9:6), and that God's choice of Jacob and not Esau was an example of God's sovereign purpose (Rom 9:11), and that God has mercy on some, while He hardens others (Rom 9:18) . . . the question might arise as to why God did not have mercy on the entire nation of Israel. After all, were not the people of Israel God's chosen people of all the nations on...

Attribute: The Judge of All the Earth

12/29/2019
The attribute of God that answers to our longing for justice is the notion that God is the righteous Judge and that He deals with everyone on the basis of His righteousness. We all have a deep-seated longing that wicked people are punished for their evil deeds and that honorable people are rewarded for their good deeds. When we speak of God's justice, we are talking about the legal notion of how God deals with humanity. It is the idea that God will see to it that everyone, sooner or later,...

Romans: The Riches of His Glory

12/22/2019
Originally Presented: February 10, 2008 Scripture Reading: Romans 9:18-23 This passage in Romans plumbs the depths of the design of God's mysterious sovereignty in salvation more deeply than perhaps any other Biblical text. If God is a God of love, why would He create a man in the full knowledge that He would eventually send him to hell for his disobedience? This is the question Paul's 'objector' poses in Romans 9:19 regarding Pharaoh. If God hardens whomever He desires to harden, then...

Advent Day 4: The Christ of Christmas

12/22/2019
Scripture Reading: Luke 2 Almost all of the traditions which surround the Christmas season are rooted in non-Christian festivals of the past. The date of Christmas (December 25) was associated with a Roman celebration called Saturnalia. Evergreens were used as decorations because they represented enduring life. Gifts were exchanged within families and between friends. The Druids thought mistletoe possessed magical powers. The Saxons had a wintertime feast called Yule. The idea of Santa...

Romans: Who Are You, O Man?: God's Sovereign Reign

12/15/2019
Originally Presented: February 3rd, 2008 Romans 9:12-20 In the first five verses, Paul poses the question as to why the Jews, with all their spiritual privileges, were not being saved. His stunning answer is that not all ethnic Israel is true Israel (Rom 9:6). It is only the chosen "children of promise" who will be saved. Paul's Old Testament illustrations of God's choosing some and not others are the stories of God choosing Isaac and not Ishmael (Rom 9:7-9) and God choosing Jacob and not...

Advent Day 3: The Virgin Birth

12/15/2019
Scripture Reading: Matthew 1:18-25 One of the wonderful doctrines of the Christian faith is the truth that Jesus was born to a virgin … that He did not come into existence as a human being in the same manner as all other people. And at the Christmas season, we sing about this virgin birth. Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright; ‘Round yon virgin mother and child . . . Christ by highest heaven adored, Christ the Everlasting Lord. Late in time behold Him come, Offspring...
