The First Law: He's God and We're Not - Feb 10, 2002

This is the first sermon in a new series called “The Seven Laws of the Spiritual Life.” For the last few years I have been thinking about putting together a short list of the basic principles of the Christian life. What are those truths that every believer needs to know in order to have ... More

God's Freedom - Romans 9:6-18 - Apr 26, 2006 - 761

While studying Romans 9, I was struck by Paul’s question in verse 14: “Is God unjust?” In our hearts we already know the answer. God is not unjust. But oftentimes he seems inconsistent. The very examples Paul chooses seem to uphold that inconsistency.He chooses Isaac over Ishmael.H ... More

Elijah and the Ravens - 1 Kings 17:2-7 - Mar 7, 2006 - 185

Until recently, everything I knew about ravens, I learned from Edgar Allen Poe. I don’t know when I first read his poem large black birds closely related to crows, the main difference being that ravens are bigger, with a wingspan that reaches 50 inches. They can be found from the arctic to the ... More

Praying For the Sick - James 5:13-16 - May 7, 2000 - 13

If you have read the title, you know exactly what this sermon is about. Praying for the sick is something we are all asked to do from time to time. It is certainly something that all pastors do every week. That fact alone makes the subject important, especially when I consider that in four years of ... More

A Question for Jesus - Matthew 11:3 - Dec 19, 2004 - 79

If you could have any gift you wanted for Christmas, what would you ask for? That’s not an easy question to answer if you start to think about it. Some of us would ask for things. A new car.A new house.A nice blouse.A necklace.A train set.A new bike.A new computer.Some of us would ask for heal ... More

Thanksgiving 1999 - Nov 21, 1999

1 Thessalonians 5:18 admonishes us to “give thanks in all circumstances.” Sometimes that is easy to do, sometimes not so easy. In the last few days I have found comfort in two places: great music and good theology. By “great music” I am not referring to a style or to a partic ... More

Is Anything Too Hard For God? The Doctrine of God's Omnipotence - Jeremiah 32:17 - Mar 9, 1997 - 472

This is the third and final sermon on the “omni” attributes of God. I have remarked earlier that these attributes are difficult to grasp because they describe truths about God that have no analog in human experience. We are limited as to place, power and personal knowledge. God is not. T ... More

No Crib for a Bed: The God of Every Circumstance - Galatians 4:4 - Dec 7, 2003 - 199

“And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn” (Luke 2:7 KJV). While doing some preparation for this message, I ran across a sermon title that stuck in my mind. Someone preached ... More

Can You Trust God With the Details of Your Life? - Genesis 50:20 - Jan 5, 2014 - 1500

Do all things really work together for good?  Consider the following: *A baby is born with serious birth defects. The doctors tell the distraught parents she won’t live more than a few hours. When the parents take the baby home, the doctors tell them not to bring her back because the ... More

Praying for the Sick–Part 2 - James 5:14-16 - Aug 28, 2009 - 1211

A few days ago I received an email from a friend whose daughter has recently been diagnosed with a very serious brain tumor that will, unless something unusual happens, take her life in the next 12-24 months. She and her husband are missionaries with a very effective outreach to the men and women se ... More

The Invisible Hand: Coming to Grips With God’s Providence - Genesis 50:20 - Feb 2, 1997 - 468

Do all things really work together for good? Consider the following:A little baby is born with no brain, only a brain stem. The doctors tell the parents that she has no chance of surviving. Somehow she stays alive for sixteen months. The parents struggle to take care of her. When she gets sick, t ... More

How Big is Your God? - Genesis 41 - Oct 22, 2013 - 1493

The email arrived from a student who had taken a course from me at Word of Life Bible Institute. She wrote a very brief note, thanking me for the class and then asking me this question: “What’s your favorite attribute of God?”   That question stumped me for several reasons. On ... More

But If Not - Daniel 3:17-18 - Dec 5, 1999 - 156

The word martyr has the sound of antiquity about it. It’s a word that belongs to the days of Jesus and the apostles, and to the persecuted early Christians who were thrown to the lions in Rome. A few of us have read in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs about the persecution of God’s children ... More
