Columbus Day was celebrated on Monday, but for how long?
  • Turn in your Bible to Luke 23:50-56. We've been looking at the crucifixion of Jesus, and now Luke brings us to the ultimate point of Jesus’ humiliation: His burial. The death and burial of Jesus are necessary for our salvation. If Jesus is going to pay the wages of sin for us, He must die. So it is very important for us to understand what Luke is teaching here about the death and burial of Jesus Christ. As we look at this passage, I want us to see three things. I want us to look at that courageous disciple in verses 50 to 53, I want us to look at the buried Savior in the whole passage, and then I want us to look at this Sabbath rest in verses 54 to 56.
  • Canada is experiencing a sharp surge of illegal aliens, and they’re not just a few angry Hillary voters making good on their bluster about moving north if Donald Trump won the election.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 5:22-23
    In our passage this week we see a depressed Moses. He is dejected because the people of Israel are in misery. He had been sent by the Lord to bring them out of Egypt, out of the land of bondage. Yet in his eyes, he has made matters worse. He delivered the message to Pharaoh the Lord had given him, and Pharaoh’s response was to punish Israel. So he goes to the Lord and asks, “Why?”

  • BUCHANAN/Embracing the culture war

  • EDITORIALS/Madison Central’s tech edge
     Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves’ visit to Madison Central last week says a lot about the school’s focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics classes.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 5: 10-21
    In surveying the religious landscape of society, Church historian David Wells has argued that God rests lightly on our shoulders today. He means God is not very weighty, and the gospel has become moralistic. By moralistic, we mean it has been reduced to good advice rather than the good news the Bible teaches about the gospel.
  • DUNCAN/Father, into your hands I commit my spirit
    Open your Bible to Luke 23:44-49. We continue today looking at another word of Jesus from the cross. I want you to be on the lookout for four things as we read in this passage. First of all, in verse 44, I want you to be asking yourself the question, “What is the darkness about here?” Then in verse 45, I want you to think about the rending of the veil in the temple. In verse 46 Luke gives you the last word of Christ from the cross: “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Finally, in verses 47-49 he shows us the reaction of those present to His death.
  • BUCHANAN/‘An act of pure evil’
    “An act of pure evil,” said President Trump of the atrocity in Las Vegas, invoking our ancient faith: “Scripture teaches us the Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
  • The mind boggles at the horror of Las Vegas, where Stephen Paddock perched himself in the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay and sprayed bullets into a crowd of outdoor concertgoers in the worst mass shooting in American history.
