Title: The Ark of the Covenant

Passage: Exodus 25:10-22

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: September 23, 2018

As God explains how the Tabernacle is to be made, he begins right a the center of the Tabernacle, right at the heart of this holy system, with the Ark of the Covenant, the only piece of furniture in the Most Holy Place within the Tabernacle. By beginning with the Ark, he gives great priority to his presence. This morning, we consider this central object, the Ark of the Covenant.

Bring an Offering (Worship Service, September 16, 2018)

Title: Bring an Offering

Passage: Exodus 25:1-9

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: September 16, 2018

At the end of ch. 24, Moses ascended into the cloud of glory at the summit of Sinai. The first thing that Moses records the Lord speaking to him is that the people should take an offering: “Speak to the people of Israel, that they take for me a contribution.” This message is on Israel’s offering. This offering is significant theologically and practically.

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

There is a holy beauty when God and man are in a state of reconciliation. This morning, as we look at this remaining bit on the covenant, I want us to appreciate how this passage turns our inner eye to the glory of the Old Covenant at Sinai

The Blood Of The Covenant (Worship Service, August 26th, 2018)

Title: The Blood Of The Covenant

Passage: Exodus 24: 1-8

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 26th, 2018

Our text draws our attention to the blood of the covenant. It is crucial to this account, and Moses’s words direct our gaze right at it: Behold, the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you. As important were the words of the covenant, Yahweh’s words to the people, and the people’s words back, the blood is especially significant. What do we learn from the blood of the covenant in this passage?

Do Not Rebel (Worship Service, August 12th, 2018)

Title: Do Not Rebel

Passage: Exodus 23:20-33

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 12th, 2018

In our text for this morning, the giving of the covenant concludes with an epilogue. As the Lord gives the Law, the Lord has again and again stressed obedience. But this passage is also about what God will do for his covenant people. In this epilogue to the covenant, we see what God will do for Israel if they keep covenant. That stipulation is important.

Covenant Worship (Worship Service, August 5th, 2018)

Title: Covenant Worship

Passage: Exodus 23:13-19

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 5th, 2018

Worship is vital in Yahweh’s covenant with Israel. There is nothing more important than God. There is no being higher than God. There is no one more deserving of worship than the one true God. For these reasons, God surrounds all of Israel’s life in covenant community with the priority of worship. In Ex 23, we see how central worship is in God’s covenant with Israel. Israel is not a secular nation. She is a sacred nation, a kingdom of priests, and God demands not only her obedience, but her worship. This text from the old covenant teaches us how essential worship is for man.

A Consecrated People (Worship Service, July 8th, 2018)

Title: A Consecrated People

Passage: Exodus 22:16-31

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: July 8th, 2018

This morning, we see several times where Yahweh demands that his people be like himself, the God of the covenant. This is our focus on as we look at the Scriptures this morning, to notice the link between Israel’s Law and God’s will that his people be like him. For the purposes of structure, I’ve divided our text into three different ideas.

Covenant Restitution (Worship Service, July 1st, 2018)

Title: Covenant Restitution

Passage: Exodus 21:33-22:15

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: July 1st, 2018

The passage before us this morning is in the middle of what Ex 21:1 calls the rules of God’s covenant with Israel. After God spoke the Decalogue to Israel from Sinai, Israel pleaded with Moses that he be their mediator so that they no longer had to listen to God. Following laws about altars, Ex 21:1 introduces the long section we are now in. This morning, we consider more of these rules. In particular, we will look at God’s laws concerning restitution

Slaves, Murder, and The Covenant, Part 2 (Worship Service, June 17th, 2018)

Title: Slaves, Murder, and The Covenant, Part 2

Passage: Exodus 21:1-32 Part II

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: June 17th, 2018

It is fitting that the Lord begins his rules in the Law with slavery and then murder. He wants Israel not to be like Egypt, a nation that brutally enslaves and murders, but like himself, a God who protects human dignity and life. That’s the main point of chapter 21. God’s people must preserve dignity and life as God does.
