GETTING THE MESSAGE/Peace found in Christ

The passage we are looking at this week in Luke 2: 22-32 teaches us the consolation Simeon found in the coming of Christ. Simeon’s song is called “Nunc Dimittis,” or now released. Simeon says, “Now you are letting your servant depart in peace” (verse 29).

DUNCAN/The chief priests’ story

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 28 verses 11 – 15. As we approach this short passage, I want to focus your attention on three things.

THOMAS/Ignorance and apathy

The joke is told about a poll taker who asks about ignorance and apathy in the country. “I don’t know, and I don’t care,” says the respondent.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/The gift of Christ

The song of Zechariah we find in Luke 1:67-79 is called “Benedictus,” meaning blessed. It begins with “Blessed is the Lord God of Israel.”

THOMAS/A gift that will keep on giving

Admit it. Unless you received a big-ticket item for Christmas last year – such as a car – you likely have forgotten what was under your tree.

EDITORIAL/Yes, Virginia

In one of the most famous editorials ever written, “Is There a Santa Claus?,” a little girl from New York was given the definitive answer to the question.

EDITORIAL/The dawn of redeeming grace

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

Isaiah 9:1-7 is a familiar passage to us during the advent season. We love to listen to a great choir sing verse 6 from Handel’s Messiah.

THOMAS/Let them eat chicken

The worthies attending the United Nations COP28 climate summit in Dubai are mostly not eating meat.

DUNCAN/Christ yields up his spirit

If you have Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 27 verses 50 – 56.

THOMAS/A disappointing non-debate

If you watched the so-called “debate” between Florida Governor and Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis and California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom (a presidential candidate in waiting),

DUNCAN/The dereliction

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 27. We will be looking at verses 45 – 49. 

GETTING THE MESSAGE/The Lord’s sustaining grace

During Thanksgiving, we think of the pilgrims at Plymouth. It often appeared that they would perish in the new land they had come to. But they remembered to pray to the Lord.


Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.


Thanksgiving remains one of America’s most undefiled holidays.

Nothing apart from Christ

Last week in Song of Songs 3:1, we saw that the believer in Christ goes through different seasons in their walk with Christ.

DUNCAN/Jesus mocked

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew 27 verses 27 – 32. Normally, we break passages into parts and try and see specific points being taught by Matthew in specific sections of the passage.

THOMAS/Virginia, Ohio and abortion

Elections, especially in Virginia and Ohio, should convince pro-life Republicans of their need to come up with a different strategy

GETTING THE MESSAGE/God’s love for His redeemed people

The Bible is about God gathering a people for Himself out of a world that is in rebellion towards Him. His redemptive work is not because they are worthy but proceeds from His love.

DUNCAN/Jesus before Pilate

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 27 verses 11 – 26 as we continue our study through the gospel.
