I decided, in light of some things I have been reading and in light of the election, to talk tonight about the Christian’s relationship to the world, specifically to his earthly country. How should we think about our country, our place of residence, as both citizens of America, and citizens of heaven? The more I’ve...

It is almost incredible to think how great a length people may go in legal mortification [i.e., killing] of sin, while yet they are utter strangers to the gospel. It is strange to think, what some heathens have done this way, and what many popish monks have done; yea, what great reformations have taken place...

The text to which we will turn our attention tonight is 1 Corinthians 1:4-5. Last week we began our study of this letter by noting some very encouraging things that Paul said to the church in Corinth. We saw how Paul reminded them of their divine calling, how they are sanctified in Christ Jesus, which means...

I believe this study of 1 Corinthians will be valuable for us because this letter shows how an Apostle deals with a church that has major problems, and is in the midst of a sexualized culture. Corinth is a major metropolitan city with much commercial influx and many cultural influences. It is also a city...

We will continue our study through this rich book of practical wisdom by jumping into a topic that we teach our children very early in life, an action that we expect of others towards us, but that we often struggle with even more as we age: the topic of forgiveness. Forgiveness. Our relationships in this...
