Sermon on John 19:28-37 “Jesus, A Thirsty Savior for Thirsty Sinners”

BIBLICAL LANGUAGES

Back several months ago I preached a sermon at Magnolia Creek Baptist Church for my friend and colleague, Pastor Brett Dutton.  I’ve just now figured out how to save the audio file so that I can re-post it here (yes, sometimes I’m technologically challenged).  If you’re so inclined, feel free to have a listen and/or pass it along to those you think it will encourage.  Please be aware that the introductory voice on the mp3 bumper says that “Brett Dutton” will be preaching, but it really is me! 🙂

Psalm 121: God Our Helper and Keeper

Earlier this month I delivered a message at Bethel Bible Fellowship on Psalm 121. In it, I explored the universality of the human condition as one of neediness:

“Let’s not fool ourselves: we are indeed needy people, when we find ourselves there at that point of deep need, we will seek help from somewhere.  The question that confronts us today is, ‘Where do you seek your ultimate source of help in this broken, sinful world?’  When the chips are down, where do you lean the hardest? Fundamentally–there are only two answers to the question, ‘Where do you seek help, ultimately?’: Either in [a] Human Resources (myself, family, merely human wisdom, technology and civilization, education, self-help books, etc.), OR in [b] Divine Resources (God: God’s wisdom, God’s power, God’s perspective, God’s instructions, God’s promises, God’s plans).”

In the message, I expound the Psalmist’s motivations for us to look to God as our ultimate source of help.  To listen, click here and be encouraged: Psalm 121: God our Helper and Keeper
