Unlikely Servants (Worship Service, May 14th, 2017)

Title: Unlikely Servants

Passage: Exodus 6:9-30

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 14th, 2017

After the response of Israel to the Lord’s message through Moses in v 9, the passage has a chiastic or x-like pattern in vv 10-30. Moses is the focus in vv 10-12. Then Moses and Aaron in v 13. Next the genealogy of Moses and Aaron in vv 14-25, followed by a return to Aaron and Moses in vv 26-27, and finally, Moses again in vv 28-30. The passage confirms the truths of vv 1-8, and shows that the Exodus is ultimately the Lord’s work. The Lord is the one who delivers his people. Yes, God uses servants, but he is the one who gets the glory. The primary point of this sermon this morning is that the Lord accomplishes his purposes no matter what.

Now You Shall See, Part 2 (Worship Service, April 30th, 2017)

Title: Now You Shall See, Part 2

Passage: Exodus 5:22 – 6:9

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: April 30th, 2017

The first part of Exodus 6 is the Lord’s answer to Moses’s prayer at the end of ch 5. The Scripture before us lifts up God’s purpose to bring glory to himself through the redemption of Israel from Egypt. The passage has five ways God glorifies himself. We looked at two last week.

Now You Shall See, Part 1 (Worship Service, April 23, 2017)

Title: Now You Shall See, Part 1

Passage: Exodus 5:22 – 6:9

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: April 23rd, 2017

It is instructive to frame verses 5:22 – 6:9 in terms of the great despondency of the Israelites in Egypt described in ch. 5. We see Moses’s response, and then we hear from God. In all this, the passage emphasizes God’s purpose to bring glory to himself through the redemption of his people. The Holy Spirit wants to draw us in to this great agenda, that we would glorify God ourselves.

Baptized Into Christ (Worship Service, April 9, 2017)

Title: Baptized Into Christ

Passage: Exodus 6: 1-4

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: April 9th, 2017

In Romans 6:1-4 Paul is not teaching about baptism per se. It certainly contains teaching about baptism, but that’s not the point. The point is the impossibility of those united to Christ to live in sin. Yet Paul drew from a shared understanding of baptism to make certain points about the Christian life. Consequently, this passage is a helpful and clarifying glimpse at biblical baptism. Our text teaches about baptism, and, from baptism rightly understood, it teaches about the Christian life. The point this morning is: those baptized in Christ will live differently from those who are not.

From Bad to Worse (Worship Service, April 2nd, 2017)

Title: From Bad to Worse

Passage: Exodus 5: 5-21

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: April 2nd, 2017

As we consider ch 5 in light of the whole book of Exodus, we are taught not to be deceived by our circumstances, but to look up and hope in God. As we look around us at the world, it seems to be spinning out of control. The darkness around us gets blacker and blacker. We too, like the Israelites, may be tempted to lose hope in our trials. But we must not. Amidst a very dark age, we must keep the flickering candle of our hope in Christ aflame. In light of this, I want you to get this central message from this sermon: believers hope in God, no matter how black the world’s darkness becomes.
