Sunday Sermons

Ligon is on a much needed and deserved vacation tomorrow (Sunday) and yours truly is trying to fill his shoes for a day. What can you expect? A sermon about Hezekiah’s sickness in the morning—a disturbing story of a good man who got too big for his boots and presumed too much and paid the consequences. The story occurs twice 2 Chronicles 32 and Isaiah 37 (is the Holy Spirit telling us that it’s an important story. Well yes, but all Scripture is important! But when something is repeated like this we’re meant to take special note of it, I think). And in the evening, we’re continuing in Acts: Peter’s sermon giving an explanation for what they had just witnessed in the healing of the crippled man at the Beautiful Gate of the temple (Acts 3:11-26). It’s all about Jesus, and it always should be. I’d tell you more, but General Assembly consumed my prep time and so my Saturday is going to be spent filling out the details of these two glorious themes. And Ligon, if you’re reading this –have a well earned break this week and be assured of our prayers. And come back soon; we already miss you!

Thanks Derek! I'll be praying for you, and missing all the good folk at First Jackson. We'll worship on the Lord's Day at First Columbia, under the preaching ministry of our dear friend Sinclair Ferguson. Will pray for you, as always, first thing on Sunday morning.
