Question 43: What benefits do believers receive from Christ at their death?

The souls of believers are at their death made perfect in holiness and do immediately pass into glory, and their bodies do rest in their graves till the resurrection.

Question 44: What benefits do believers receive from Christ at the resurrection?

At the resurrection, believers being raised up in glory, shall be openly acknowledged and acquitted, and made perfectly blessed both in soul and body in the full enjoying of God to all eternity.

See the Salvation of the LORD II (Worship Service, September 24th, 2017)

Title: See the Salvation of the LORD II

Passage: Exodus 14:15-31

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: September 24th, 2017

Today, we continue this exploration of the glory of God at the Red Sea. If God revealed to Moses that his purpose at the Red Sea was to get glory, he wants us to see his glory in this pivotal biblical event. So let’s attend God’s glory as highlighted by the Spirit of God who inspired Moses to write this history, this time in the Red Sea crossing itself.

See the Salvation of the LORD (Worship Service, September 17th, 2017)

Title: See the Salvation of the LORD

Passage: Exodus 14:1-14

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: September 17th, 2017

The Lord himself tells us what the purpose of the Red Sea episode is. This is in v 4b: I will get glory over Pharaoh and all his host, and all the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD (cf. v 17). The episode at the Red Sea, just like the plagues before it and the Exodus, is really all about God’s glory. God’s purpose in the salvation of his people at the Red Sea is also that Israel would know and glorify the Lord. And the Holy Spirit inspired Moses to write this account at the Red Sea so that we too see the glory of God and better love and believe him.

The Shining Shepherd of Israel (Worship Service, September 10th, 2017)

Title: The Shining Shepherd of Israel

Passage: Exodus 12:42-13:16

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: September 10th, 2017

In our text for this Lord’s Day sermon, we see the Lord back up front and center. Moses wants us to see the care and love of God as his newly redeemed people depart for Canaan. How does God show his shepherding love for his people?

Unleavened, Part 2 (Worship Service, September 3rd, 2017)

Title: Unleavened, Part 2

Passage: Exodus 12:42-13:16

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: September 3rd, 2017

We have considered the Exodus from two aspects: what it teaches us about our Redeemer God and the response the redeemed ought to offer their God. We find these responses given by the Israelite’s example and the demands God lays out for them. The Exodus means that God is saving a people for himself. He wants the Hebrew people to know Him. He will dwell with this people and be their God. This means that things must be different for the Israelites. This week, we look at two more responses of redeemed people to their Redeemer.

Unleavened, Part 1 (Worship Service, August 27th, 2017)

Title: Unleavened, Part 1

Passage: Exodus 12:42-13:16

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 27th, 2017

A couple weeks ago, I preached a sermon called A Memorial Day. There I described two ways from ch 12:14-27 that God wants his redeemed to respond to him: he wants us to remember our Savior and to worship our SaviorOn one level, this is a development of that sermon. The features are new, but they continue the main concern, that the Passover and Exodus is not a simply an exciting story where slaves are released, but a crucial event in Israel’s history. And in that event, the Lord gives his people Israel a blueprint for how he wants them—and through their example, us—to respond to his redemption.

The Exodus (Worship Service, August 20th, 2017)

Title: The Exodus

Passage: Exodus 12: 28-42

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 20th, 2017

Back in ch 6:7, we saw that the Exodus from Egypt is a plan for God to glorify himself to his people. The Lord has had his glory as his purpose for the Exodus from the outset. So, now that we have arrived at the Exodus in vv 28-42 of chapter 12, the Lord wants us to see that he is God who really does save his people. God brings Israel out of Egypt so that we would marvel in adoration at his works.

The Passover Fulfilled (Worship Service, August 13th, 2017)

Title: The Passover Fulfilled

Passage: Exodus 12

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 13th, 2017

The Passover of Exodus 12 is fulfilled in Jesus Christ. We have looked at the text carefully already, but now we must bring the message of the Passover forward and connect it to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Passover is a type of Jesus Christ. You need to view the Passover in relation to your own salvation through Jesus Christ. So I want to answer three questions to bring light upon the fulfillment of the Passover in Christ.
