Chosen to Proclaim | 1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9 ESV Peter’s first epistle is filled with hope to a persecuted people. Throughout the letter, the …

Thus the LORD Saved Israel | Exodus 14:15-31

In a sea of memorable moments, we finally come to what is likely the most well-known moment of the book of Exodus, if not all of Scripture. More than Moses' meeting with God through the burning bush, more than his infant ride down the Nile, more than any of the plagues, more than Pharaoh's stubborn …

Passover & the New Covenant

This Good Friday sermon was originally preached in 2019. Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink …

Thrust Out of Egypt | Exodus 12:29-42

Here at last, after all the prophesies and predictions given, we now have before us the account of two of the most significant events in both the book of Exodus as well as the Bible as a whole: the tenth plague and the exodus. Although it may seem strange that these things that have had …

The Wicked Are Not So | Psalm 1:4

The wicked are not so, Psalm 1:4 ESV As we set our gaze upon verse 4, the psalmist presents us with the great contrast of this psalm. You see, for the first three verses, the focus has been upon the blessed man, the one who is favored by God. Verse 1 revealed the company that …

Abraham Sacrifices Isaac | Genesis 22

This sermon was originally preached in 2015. This chapter is certainly the greatest trial that Abraham ever faced. His twenty-five-year wait, his war against kings to rescue Lot, his walk of faith to Canaan were nothing compared to the difficulty of trusting the LORD in this task. However, by this, we learn that Abraham truly …

I Am the LORD | Exodus 6:1-9

Chapter 5 began with the long-awaited meeting of Moses and Pharaoh; however, the splendid sparks that the exodus story is so known for scarcely flew. Rather than beginning Egypt’s ruin by the hand of God, the brief encounter ended with the king of Egypt tightening his tyrannical grip upon the Hebrews even further by forcing …

Who Is the LORD? | Exodus 5

As last, here in the fifth chapter of Exodus, we find the first confrontation between Moses and Pharaoh. Through all of his faults and fears, Moses returned to Egypt with his brother Aaron and told the elders of Israel all that God had spoken to him. In response, they believed what Moses had said and …

Come Down to Deliver | Exodus 3:1-15

In these verses, we read the beginning of the account of God’s appearance to Moses in the burning bush. As we study this passage, we will largely behold three points: the unapproachable holiness of God, the goodness of His descendent to rescue His people, and the revelation of God’s holy name. STANDING ON HOLY GROUND …

Blessed Is the Man | Psalm 1:1

Blessed is the man… Psalm 1:1 ESV Psalm 1 is the prelude, the opening doxology, to the rest of the Psalter, and it describes a theme that runs throughout the Bible. Genesis 2-3 describes this theme as the choice between the words of God or of Satan. Proverbs calls it the choice between wisdom or …
