Why Did Jesus Come into the World?

Text: I Timothy 1:15
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: December 26, 2010

I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas day with your loved ones.

Tomorrow I plan to preach from I Timothy 1:15, “The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.”

Spurgeon calls this verse, “The whole gospel in a single verse.” And “A great gospel for great sinners.”

In this one verse we are told about Who Jesus is and why He came into the world.
He offers hope of forgiveness and change to the worst of sinners.
This truth also enables us to face our trials, and it transforms our relationships with others.


David’s Last Words (and how they relate to Christmas)

Text: II Samuel 23:1-7
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: December 19, 2010

This Sunday morning we will complete our long study of I and II Samuel!
Some of you may question whether, on the Sunday before Christmas, it might be better to preach about the incarnation.
Actually, I get to do both!

David’s last words, recorded in II Sam. 23:1-7, are a poetic expression of his anticipation of the coming of the Messiah (i.e. Jesus) who will reign with justice in the fear of God thus bringing blessing to His people. When we read the accounts of Jesus birth and the aftermath (as we will at the Christmas Eve service next Friday night!), there are numerous references to how Jesus fulfills Israel’s expectation of a Davidic King.

Like David, we live in anticipation of Jesus’ second advent when He shalll reign in righteousness forever.


David’s Psalm of Thanksgiving (Part 2)

Text: II Samuel 22:21-51
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: December 12, 2010

Two weeks ago we covered the first half of II Samuel 22 which is David’s song of thanksgiving to God for delivering him throughout his life.

This week we will complete the Psalm.

As you remember, this Psalm can be sung in three part harmony:

1. David sings of his experience as God’s anointed King.

2. The Psalm points ahead to the experience of Jesus our Anointed King, of whom David is a type. Some parts of this Psalm can only refer, without qualification, to Jesus. Paul quotes from this Psalm, when speaking of Jesus’ bringing the gospel to the Gentiles (in Romans 15).

3. This Psalm also speaks to our experience of God’s deliverance, both in our salvation and in the struggles of this life.

In the first half of the Psalm David described his deliverance in dramatic poetic terminology. In the second half he speaks more directly of God’s help in warfare.

We Walk by Faith, Not by Sight

Text: II Corinthians 4:16-5:10
Speaker: David Alexander
Outline: PDF
Date: December 5, 2010

This Sunday, the Lord willing, we will look at a passage from 2 Corinthians, from verse 16 of chapter 4 through to verse 10 of chapter 5. Paul writes here of the hope of believers, and in particular their resurrection from the dead. But he uses these future considerations to guide us in how we are to live in the present — especially how we handle the troubles and sufferings that come to us in this life.

Please pray that the Lord will be glorified, the church strengthened, and the lost gathered.
