Q. 105 What do we pray for in the fifth petition---A. In the fifth petition, -which is, And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors- we pray, that God, for Christ's sake, would freely pardon all our sins- which we are the rather encouraged to ask, because by His grace we are enabled from the heart to forgive others.--Forgiveness is letting …
 
Q. 104 What do we pray for in the fourth petition---A. In the fourth petition, -which is, Give us this day our daily bread,- we pray, that of God's free gift we may receive a competent portion of the good things of this life, and enjoy His blessing with them.--You will notice a change that comes with the fourth petition from the use of the word -Yo…
 
Today we come to chapter 3 in the Epistle to the Hebrews. When I introduced this letter, we saw that the author calls it an exhortation -Heb 13-22-. An exhortation is a push for you to do something important. But chapter 3 this is the first time that he addresses the recipients directly. The exhortation can be summed up in just two words- -Consider…
 
Q. 103 What do we pray for in the third petition---A. In the third petition -which is, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven- we pray, That God, by His grace, would make us able and willing to know, obey, and submit to His will in all things, as the angels do in heaven.--As with last week, my text for this sermon is simply the words in Matt…
 
This Psalm shows us how we should relate to God as God's people-as Christians. This Psalm has the Psalmist -ultimately Jesus- telling us how to relate to God. He calls us to come with Him to God to praise God -1-5- and to worship Him -6-7-. But then God the Father interrupts with a solemn warning-telling us that we must not harden our hearts. He wa…
 
Q. 102 What do we pray for in the second petition---A. In the second petition -which is Thy Kingdom come- we pray, that Satan's kingdom may be destroyed- and that the kingdom of grace may be advanced, ourselves and others brought into it, and kept in it- and that the kingdom of glory may be hastened.--As we consider what it means to pray for God's …
 
Q. 101 What do we pray for in the first petition---A. In the first petition -which is, Hallowed be thy name- we pray, that God would enable us and others to glorify Him in all that whereby He maketh Himself known- and that He would dispose all things to His own glory.--You see how important it was to Jesus that God's name would be hallowed. Today, …
 
Q. 100 What doth the preface to the Lord's Prayer teach us---A. The preface to the Lord's Prayer -which is, Our Father, which art in heaven- teacheth us to draw near to God with all holy reverence and confidence, as children to a father, able and ready to help us- and that we should pray with and for others.--Why does Jesus tell us to use the plura…
 
Q. 99 What rule hath God given for our direction in prayer---A. The whole word of God is of use to direct us in prayer- but the special rule of direction is that form of prayer which Christ taught His disciples, commonly called The Lord's Prayer.--Does it seem strange to talk about a rule for prayer- Isn't real prayer supposed to be spontaneous and…
 
The great issue is, we need salvation because we lost the place that God created us to occupy as human beings- the place of subjugation to Him and of authority over everything else. As human beings, He did not create us to be the victims of adverse weather, sickness, attacks from hostile enemies, deception, enslavement to our passions and lusts. He…
 
Q. 98 What is prayer---A. Prayer is an offering up of our desires unto God, for things agreeable to His will, in the name of Christ, with confession of our sins, and thankful acknowledgement of His mercies.--Today in our sermon series based on the Westminster Shorter Catechism, we come to a new section pertaining to the means of grace. Remember tha…
 
It is important to speak on your daily labour as an acceptable offering to God. The church has often been very confused about this. Many in the church today see daily work as a necessary evil. In the early church, disdain for everyday work was also very common -1 Tim 4-1-5-. In the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, a biblical view of work…
 
Q. 97 What is required to the worthy receiving of the Lord's Supper---A. It is required of them that would worthily partake of the Lord's Supper, that they examine themselves of their knowledge to discern the Lord's body, of their faith to feed upon Him, of their repentance, love, and new obedience- lest, coming unworthily, they eat and drink judge…
 
Today in Hebrews, we come to a serious warning. It is a warning that we should all pay careful attention to. It is a warning against hearing without hearing. We could say, a warning against hearing the gospel without actually getting it. This is no small danger. Jesus Himself warned about it again and again in His teaching. We have seen it in our s…
 
Q. 96. What is the Lord's Supper---A. The Lord's Supper is a sacrament, wherein, by giving and receiving bread and wine according to Christ's appointment, his death is showed forth- and the worthy receivers are, not after a corporal and carnal manner, but by faith, made partakers of his body and blood, with all his benefits, to their spiritual nour…
 
There are many voices that call to you to listen to them to show you the way. Which one should you listen to- Last week we saw how the Epistle to the Hebrews opens---Hebrews 1-1-2- -God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son.---This is wonderful- If…
 
Q. 95 To whom is Baptism to be administered---A. Baptism is not be administered to any that are out of the visible church, till they profess their faith in Christ, and obedience to Him- but the infants of such as are members of the visible church are to be baptised.--Today, I want to show you from scripture that we are not to neglect the baptism of…
 
As we come to the first chapter, we may think of all the things that pull us as so many voices calling us to ignore God's voice -or at least tone it down a bit- and listen to them. Hebrews confronts us from the very first verse with the voice of God. Everything in this letter-indeed-everything in the Bible-boils down to this. God Himself has spoken…
 
Q. 94 What is Baptism---A. Baptism is a sacrament of the New Testament, wherein the washing with water in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, doth signify and seal our ingrafting into Christ, and partaking of the benefits of the covenant of grace, and our engagement to the Lord's.--I will endeavour to explain this and to …
 
Q. 93 Which are the sacraments of the New Testament---A. The sacraments of the New Testament are, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper.--That is a simple question to memorise and answer, but it is not such a simple question to explain because the church has very divergent views. The view presented in our catechism is that of the churches of the Reformati…
 
Q. 92 What is a sacrament---A. A sacrament is an holy ordinance instituted by Christ- wherein, by sensible signs, Christ, and the benefits of the new covenant are represented, sealed, and applied to believers.--What a gracious Saviour He is to give us sacraments as an additional help to our faith- Our scripture reading is from a passage that shows …
 
Today, we are starting a new sermon series in the Epistle to the Hebrews. This week, I want to do a general introduction to the entire book of Hebrews.--The original recipients would have been expected to read the whole epistle in one sitting-a reading that would take about forty-five minutes. They would have read to the end and seen what the autho…
 
Q. 91 How do the sacraments become effectual means of salvation---A. The sacraments become effectual means of salvation, not from any virtue in them, or in him that doth administer them- but only by the blessing of Christ, and the working of His Spirit, in them that by faith receive them.--Do not think that you are blessed simply because you were b…
 
Q. 90 How is the Word to be read and heard that it may become effectual to salvation---A. That the Word may become effectual to salvation, we must attend thereunto with diligence, preparation, and prayer- receive it with faith and love, lay it up in our hearts, and practice it in our lives.--As you can see, the reception of the Word is a very serio…
 
Q. 89 How is the Word made effectual to salvation---A. The Spirit of God maketh the reading but especially the preaching of the Word, and effectual means of convincing and converting sinners, and of building them up in holiness and comfort through faith, unto salvation.--This afternoon we are going to look at how God uses the Bible in our lives.…
 
Before we begin our new sermon series in Hebrews, we will have a few more sermons on various matters. This week, I want to have the first of two sermons from Philippians 3-20 on being citizens of heaven. I chose this Citizens of Heaven theme partly because we are having a baptism and receiving new members, but also because I want to remind you of w…
 
Q. 88 What are the outward means whereby Christ communicateth to us the benefits of redemption---A. The outward and ordinary means whereby Christ communicateth to us the benefits of redemption are His ordinances, especially the word, sacraments, and prayer- all which are made effectual to the elect for salvation.--He Himself uses these means to bri…
