The People Stood Far Off (Worship Service, June 3rd, 2018)

Title: The People Stood Far Off

Passage: Exodus 20:18-26

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

As we went through the commandments, we found again and again our need of forgiveness. God’s standards are high and holy. When we measure ourselves against God’s standard, we find that we have missed the mark. We are sinners. The Israelites knew this as well, so they drew away and stood far off. If you have ever felt unworthy to draw near to God, this passage is for you. We sinners must draw near to God. But how?

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.
