Israel’s Sabbath (Worship Service, March 18th, 2018)

Title: Israel’s Sabbath

Passage: Exodus 20:8-11

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: March 18th, 2018

Today, we consider the 4th commandment. In the NT era, this is one of the most controversial commands. Someone’s approach to the 4th commandment often indicates how he understands the relationship of the OT law to the church.

Taking Up The Sacred Name (Worship Service, March 4th, 2018)

Title: Taking Up The Sacred Name

Passage: Exodus 20: 7

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: March 4th, 2018

This morning, we consider the third commandment. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. Many suppose this word has to do with a short list of words to avoid in curses. I hope to help you understand that this command is about much more than that.

How is God’s Name Taken in Vain? (Worship Service, February 17, 2008)

Title: How is God’s Name Taken in Vain?

Passage: Exodus 20:7

Speaker: Dr. Kevin T. Bauder

Service: Sunday Morning Worship

Date: February 17, 2008*

Special Note: This sermon by Kevin Bauder, preached nearly one decade ago at this church, excellently applies the 3rd commandment to believers today. This sermon was especially formative for Pastor Martin. The sermon was lost in the transition to the current website several years ago. This sermon, however, was “rediscovered” and is now re-posted to the church’s website for your edification in conjunction with Pastor Martin’s own attempt to preach this great text of Holy Scripture.

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

We turn today to the second commandment. If the first commandment specifies the object we worship, the second commandment specifies the manner we worship.

No Other Gods (Worship Service, February 18th, 2018)

Title: No Other Gods

Passage: Exodus 20: 1-3

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: February 18th, 2018

Then, we read in ch 20:1, “And God spoke all these words.” So, while Moses was up at the mountain peak, the Lord spoke audibly to him so that his people could hear. And what the Lord said that great day was none other than what we call the Ten Commandments. As they enter into covenant, God presents covenant stipulations that they must follow as his people. This morning, we will consider the first of these.

Our God Is A Consuming Fire (Worship Service, February 11th, 2018)

Title: Our God Is A Consuming Fire

Passage: Exodus 19: 9-26

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: February 11th, 2018

Exodus 19 is something of a Preparation for Worship email to Israel. Remember, according to 3:12, Israel is to worship Yahweh at Mt Sinai. God is preparing his people to worship him. That worship will involve the declaration of God’s Word. In the thick cloud, God prepares his people to believe him and his messenger, Moses. In so doing, Israel learns three crucial lessons about approaching God’s presence to receive God’s Word.

A Kingdom of Priests (Worship Service, February 4th, 2018)

Title: A Kingdom of Priests

Passage: Exodus 19: 1-18

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: February 4th, 2018

Exodus 19–24 is one of the most important passages of the Old Testament and entire scriptures. The covenant God makes with Israel in these chapters becomes the framework through which the great majority of the Old Testament is to be understood.

Our passage is really about God. He is a God of manifold grace, and that grace is seen in the covenant of Sinai. The text makes clear that what happens at Sinai represents his glorious desire for his chosen people. When we pause to look at how God is treating his people in Exod 19, we ought to be ready to proclaim the excellencies of this God who graciously cuts covenants with mankind.

Now I Know That the LORD Is Greater (Worship Service, January 21th, 2018)

Title: Now I Know That the LORD Is Greater

Passage: Exodus 18

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: January 21st, 2018

The story of Jethro is primarily given to us to make this important point: All men ought to give the true God glory for his wonderful works. Even during this time of salvation history where God is dealing primarily with Israel, God’s dealings with them is intended to bring all the nations to confess that Yahweh is the true God. Every man, woman, and child ought to give God the glory due his name.

The LORD is My Banner (Worship Service, January 14th, 2018)

Title: The LORD is My Banner

Passage: Exodus 17:8-16

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: January 14th, 2018

Our text this morning is the story of Israel’s first conflict after defeating Egypt. This morning, I think it’s better to approach our text from the ground up. I want us to understand what’s going on, and then draw lessons for us from what the passage reveals.
