Faith and Love in the Church

From the sermon series, “Future Grace for Godliness”

Sermon text: 2 Thessalonians 1:1-4

Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy,
To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing. Therefore we ourselves boast about you in the churches of God for your steadfastness and faith in all your persecutions and in the afflictions that you are enduring.

Overcoming Envy

Sermon text: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Truly God is good to Israel,
     to those who are pure in heart.
But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled,
     my steps had nearly slipped.
For I was envious of the arrogant
     when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

Living Today in Light of the Future (pt. 2)

Sermon text: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

     But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Living Today in Light of the Future (pt. 1)

Sermon text: 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12

     Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another, for that indeed is what you are doing to all the brothers throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.

The Curse and the Cure

From the sermon series, “The Way of Wisdom”

Sermon text: Proverbs 3:33–35

The LORD’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
     but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.
Toward the scorners he is scornful,
     but to the humble he gives favor.
The wise will inherit honor,
     but fools get disgrace.

You and Your Neighbor

From the sermon series, “The Way of Wisdom”

Sermon text: Proverbs 3:28–33

Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come again,
     tomorrow I will give it”—when you have it with you.
Do not plan evil against your neighbor,
     who dwells trustingly beside you.
Do not contend with a man for no reason,
     when he has done you no harm.
Do not envy a man of violence
     and do not choose any of his ways,
for the devious person is an abomination to the LORD,
     but the upright are in his confidence.
The LORD’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
     but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.

The Unspeakable Advantage of Wisdom

From the sermon series, “The Way of Wisdom”

Sermon text: Proverbs 3:21–26

My son, do not lose sight of these—
     keep sound wisdom and discretion,
and they will be life for your soul
     and adornment for your neck.
Then you will walk on your way securely,
     and your foot will not stumble.
If you lie down, you will not be afraid;
     when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
Do not be afraid of sudden terror
     or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes,
for the LORD will be your confidence
     and will keep your foot from being caught.

Wisdom's Profitable Way

From the sermon series, “The Way of Wisdom”

Sermon text: Proverbs 3:13–18

Blessed is the one who finds wisdom,
     and the one who gets understanding,
for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
     and her profit better than gold.
She is more precious than jewels,
     and nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand;
     in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
     and all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
     those who hold her fast are called blessed.

Divine Delight and Discipline

From the sermon series, “The Way of Wisdom”

Sermon text: Proverbs 3:11–12

My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline
     or be weary of his reproof,
for the LORD reproves him whom he loves,
     as a father the son in whom he delights.
