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.

A Holy Sabbath to the LORD (Worship Service, December 10th, 2017)

Title: A Holy Sabbath to the LORD

Passage: Exodus 16:21-36

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: December 10th, 2017

The rest of Exodus 16 deals with the institution of a pre-Sinai Sabbath and the people’s response to this. I believe that the same theme of first half of the chapter can be easily brought over and extended into the focus on the manna and Sabbath. That is, we still learn here that true saints believe that God alone can satisfy their greatest desires

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.

From Bad to Worse (Worship Service, April 2nd, 2017)

Title: From Bad to Worse

Passage: Exodus 5: 5-21

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: April 2nd, 2017

As we consider ch 5 in light of the whole book of Exodus, we are taught not to be deceived by our circumstances, but to look up and hope in God. As we look around us at the world, it seems to be spinning out of control. The darkness around us gets blacker and blacker. We too, like the Israelites, may be tempted to lose hope in our trials. But we must not. Amidst a very dark age, we must keep the flickering candle of our hope in Christ aflame. In light of this, I want you to get this central message from this sermon: believers hope in God, no matter how black the world’s darkness becomes.

He Does Whatever He Pleases (Worship Service, March 5th, 2017)

Title: He Does Whatever He Pleases

Passage: Exodus 3:16-22

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: March 5th, 2017

The LORD has sovereign power and authority over all things. Yahweh is in control over everything that happens in the book of Exodus. That is because the Lord is over everything that happens, period. This passage is not only about what is about to happen, it is also about a Sovereign God who foretells what will certainly happen because he decreed those events. In light of this truth, the point of this morning’s message is we should trust our sovereign God who does whatever he decrees. Why should we trust God?

The Sacred Name, Part 2 (Worship Service, February 19th, 2017)

Title: The Sacred Name, Part 2

Passage: Exodus 3:10-15

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: February 19th, 2017

In a way similar to his call of Moses, God calls us to do extraordinary, things for his sake. He calls us to tasks we are unequal to. I include with this our response to God’s calling on us as Christians, in our vocations and responsibilities, and as evangelists and ministers of Christ to others. As we hear God’s response to Moses, I want us to respond the way God wants Moses to respond: with trust. We must trust the God who calls us.

The Sacred Name, Part 1 (Worship Service, February 5th, 2017)

Title: The Sacred Name

Passage: Exodus 3:10-15

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: February 5th, 2017

God calls each one of us to be something extraordinary; he calls each one of us to our life’s work. And in each of these spiritual and vocation callings, we, like Moses, need to trust the God who calls us. Whether we’re Moses leading the children of Israel out of Egypt, or we’re a man who believes God might have called him to be a pastor, or we’re a housewife struggling to homeschool, or we’re a believer struggling to be holy, we, like Moses, need to trust the God who calls us. God’s answers to Moses in this passage give us three reasons to trust God ourselves.

And These Are The Names, Part 3 (Worship Service, November 27th, 2016)

Title: And These Are The Names Part 3

Passage: Exodus 1

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: November 27th, 2016

The book of Genesis closes with a dim but real ancient hope, uttered by the lips of Joseph, that God would bring his people to the Promised Land. The story picks right up in Exodus 1:1. As the first chapter of Exodus unfolds, we see, like the first lights of a new day on the eastern sky, the quiet opening acts by a God who keeps his word. No matter what the circumstances of life, you can trust God to keep his Word. In our passage this morning, we see three marks of God’s faithfulness to his promise.
