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 …

Telling the Story | Philip Ryken

Last Sunday I preached through plagues seven through nine. While moving through those passages, I essentially bypassed the first two verses of chapter 10, which preface the eighth plague: Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, that I may show …

God Heard Their Groaning | Exodus 2

Chapters 2 and 3 of Genesis set the scene for the remainder of the book of Genesis as well as the Bible as a whole. Chapter 2 establishes how the world was created to be, the garden paradise that we still yearn for. Chapter 3, however, purposely mirrors chapter 2 because it reveals how paradise …

Let the Children Be Fed First | Mark 7:24-30

Does Regeneration Precede Faith? | John Calvin

The question at hand of which comes first, regeneration or faith, is full of obvious assumptions. If our faith precedes our regeneration, then it might be quite easily assumed that salvation is a synergistic work by which we extend a hand of desperation to God and He, in turn, rescued us. And if our regeneration …

Contending for the Faith | Jude 3-4

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who …
