Sirs, what must I do to be saved? »

Series: The Book of Acts

Unfolding in this portion of Scripture is the sovereign and eternal purpose of God both in providence and election. Here Luke records not only the fact of the gaoler's conversion but also the facts surrounding his conversion. The gaoler's conversion does not begin at verse 25 but rather we see how the LORD ordered providence from verse 16 to 24 where Paul, Silas and Luke end up locked in a cell. In this sermon we consider the gaolor's question and Paul's reply.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy »

Series: Studies in The Sermon on The Mount

Today's consideration is the 5th beatitude. This beatitude, as does the remaining beatitudes continues to examine the christian's character. We have as it were, a reminder of the second table of the Ten commandments (Commandments 5 - 10) which refers to the duty God that requires of man to his or her neighbour. The christian ought then to possess mercy and be merciful to their neighbour for of such is their Father in Heaven who is plenteous in mercy.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness »

In a world filled with conflict of sorts and types and in particular wars, Martyn Lloyd-Jones comments regarding this verse that "If every man and woman in this world know what it was to hunger and thirst after righteousness, there would be no danger of war. Here is the ONLY way to real peace."

A Biblical blueprint for dealing with problems in the church »

Series: The Book of Acts

As the church of Jesus Christ grows problems are most certain to appear. In this chapter we consider the Biblical pattern for dealing with problems that arise in the church. The problem in this case was doctrinal. Many today think that doctrine isn't important but here we see how serious the New Testament church were concerned about doctrine. As we read this chapter we quickly come to realise that this was a most serious error - being that trusting in Christ alone was not enough to secure salvation. An error which unfortunately is still with us today. Many today still think that Christ's work on the cross is insufficient as trusting in Christ alone for them is not enough but will add other things such as church membership, baptism and good works. But let us hear what the Scriptures saith.

Blessed are they that mourn »

Series: Studies in The Sermon on The Mount

Jesus continues to lay before his audience the characteristics or the "graces" of those who belong to the kingdom of God, those whom are born again. Many people sorrow and mourn, Jesus sets before us here the mourning of a believer and the comfort that He brings to those who have a godly sorrow over sin.

A call to missionary work Part 1 »

Series: The Book of Acts

The Lord, through the record of Luke in the Book of Acts, sets out the "model" as it were for missionary work. What is vitally important from this passage is the necessity for a congregation (never mind the denomination) not only to be missionary minded and to nuture and develop a missionary mindedness.
