Who Is Your High Priest?

Hebrews 5:1-5 — “No man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron. So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.” In this passage the author of Hebrews describes…

Loneliness

John 16:32 — “Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone…” Loneliness is one of the most difficult human experiences and it touches all of us. It was something that Jesus experienced, especially in the hours before His crucifixion. He told…

You Are My Friends

Luke 12:4a — “And I say unto you my friends…” Jesus called the disciples His “friends,” which, when you think about it, was a rather remarkable thing to say! The disciples experienced friendship with the Son of God and so can we. In this sermon we think about how a person becomes a friend of…

Comfortable With Your Hypocrisy?

Luke 12:1-3 — “Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy…” In these verses Jesus gave a severe warning to his disciples.

Being experts in the Word of God, the lawyers were…

A Good Reputation?

III John 12-14 — “Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true.” As we consider this man Demetrius that John mentions in the closing verses of the letter, we are reminded of the importance of our reputation,…

Destructive Love

III John 9-11 — “I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.” Generally speaking, if Christians know anything at all about the book of III John it is the name Diotrephes. Sadly, this man is known only for the wicked way he responded to the…

Support Gospel Ministers

III John 5-8 — “We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth.” In this section of the letter, John commends Gaius for showing hospitality to some missionaries who had come through his town on their travels. When they reported back to their sending church, they had testified of the…
