Steal No More (Worship Service, May 6th, 2018)

Title: Steal No More

Passage: Exodus 20:15

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 6th, 2018

As we meditate on the 8 C, we find that it actually speaks to more than simply bare theft and robbery. Once again, God’s word bids us go further and deeper.

No Adultery (Worship Service, April 29th, 2018)

Title: No Adultery

Passage: Exodus 20:14

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: April 29th, 2018

As I stand here, it’s hard to sense the great importance that this message could have for us as a church of Jesus Christ. Some of you have been or will be tempted to commit adultery in its various forms. The sick state of our present age, ranging from rampant divorce, atheism, pornography, homosexuality, and the transgender insanity, can be traced to the cold disregard for this one command of God. Yet this command remains as true today as it did 3400 years ago.

Murder, Or Whatever Tends To It (Worship Service, April 22nd, 2018)

Title: Murder, Or Whatever Tends To It

Passage: Exodus 20:12

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: April 22nd, 2018

The sixth commandment seems like a strange, far-off thing to most of us. Few if any of us, have ever taken another man’s life. And yet, even here, with the sixth commandment, there is more here than meets the eye. May the Lord open to his holy demands this morning.

Honor and the Honored (Worship Service, April 8th, 2018)

Title: Honor and the Honored

Passage: Exodus 20:11

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: April 8th, 2018

The 5th Commandment may be the one we have heard the most over the course of our lives. We were told it when we were children, even babies. But there is more here than a word about how little children should behave. Indeed, this fifth word is filled with significance.

The Triumphal Entry (Worship Service, March 25th, 2018)

Title: The Triumphal Entry

Passage: Luke 19:28-40

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: March 25th, 2018

The focus of this passage is on the Lord Jesus Christ. The disciples’ response is important. Their words of praise, echoing Psalm 118, is clearly given to us as a positive example. Jesus clearly thinks the praise is a good thing. One point of the story of the Triumphal Entry is that we should respond to these events the same way Jesus’ disciples did. Luke’s account of the triumphal entry suggests at least three distinct reasons for us to rejoice in Christ.

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.

Title: Keep Yourself From Idols

Passage: Exodus 20: 4-6

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship

Date: February 25th, 2018

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