1 Corinthians 10:1-13

Temptation

This morning's text comes from 1 Corinthians 10, and we'll read from the first 13 verses of that chapter. 1 Corinthians 10—I apologize in advance; all of my notes are in the NIV from 1984, so if it sounds a little different to your Bible, that would be why, but I know no other version, so I'll be stuck with that one.

1 Corinthians 10, and I'll read from verse 1 through to verse 13: "For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers, that our forefathers were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. They … Continue reading...

Matthew 5:13-16

Beatitudes: Salt and Light

Matthew Chapter 5:11-16 tells us, "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp … Continue reading...

Matthew 12:1-14

The Sabbath

This morning I'd like to speak to you on a longstanding issue that has fueled controversy for thousands of years. It's a teaching that has been misconstrued and misinterpreted. It's a teaching that has led to the formation of many denominations and it has brought about denominational pride, it has brought about ugly debates. But I'm not here today to settle a debate. I doubt that a lay preacher from Gregory Hills can solve the puzzle of the Sabbath that has been running around for the past 2000 years. So my aim is not to settle the debate bu… Continue reading...

Let us pray. Oh Lord our God, we pray that in these few moments around Your word, we would be kept near the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by Your Holy Spirit, that You would raise our affections, that we might forever glory in the cross of our Savior. Oh Jesus, we love You. Help us to love You more. We ask it in Jesus' name, Amen.

These three words in English, "it is finished," … Continue reading...

1 Corinthians 15:58

Why Should We Labour For the Lord?

Well again, it's a privilege to be here today for this historic moment in the life of Camden Valley Baptist as we lay hands on Joshua and formally acknowledge him as a pastor here at Camden Valley Baptist.
