The Man who the Kings Delights to Honour

Subtitle: Sleepless in Susa to Celebration in the Capital A phrase comes to mind from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “hoist on his own petard”. Haman experiences this as his plan concerning Mordecai backfires, when the king wishes to honour Mordecai for his deed of courage. We learn from Mordecai to endure, press on and preserve, not growing weary in doing well, knowing we shall reap a harvest in due time. Therefore, we press on.

Who is He?

We all have different opinions about who different people are. We have curiosity whenever a new person moves in near us. This same curiosity can be seen in today's passage when people talk about who they think Jesus is. Is Jesus a good man? is Jesus a good teacher? or is here more to Jesus? Let find out more...

The Royal Law of Relationships - Function and Limitations of God's Law

In this 5th sermon in the series on the Royal Law of Relationship we look at some things the Apostle Paul said in Romans 7 as, using what Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones said about this chapter, Paul shows us the "Function and Limitations of God's Law". This chapter along with chapter 6, is an interlude in Paul's grand theme of Romans of justification by faith, and can also be seen as an expansion of his words in Romans 6 v 14 "For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace". In the first part of chapter 7 (vv. 1--6) Paul shows that the Christian has entered into a new relationship by being "married" to Jesus Christ and the old relationship with the law has been dissolved. Yet Paul, in vv 7--12, is at pains to show the Law (the 10 Commandments) still has a purpose and using his own experience shows how the 10th Commandment, "Do not covet", kicked in and exposed the sinfulness of his sin (v. 9), and even though the Law is good and spiritual it had the effect of aggravating his sin (v 11). The final section from vv 13--25 has been the subject of much debate as to who is the man that Paul has personalised by speaking in the present tense. Certainly a Christian can identify with the experience of struggling against indwelling sin and also delighting in God's law (v 22) and yet, following, Lloyd-Jones' logic, and comparing Paul's other epistles and what he says about the Christian life, surely a Christian should not be one who is brought into "captivity to the law of sin" (v 23) from which he has been freed (6 v 14). Perhaps the main point he is seeking to make is that the Law is powerless to free a person from sin and what is needed is to be born from above by the Holy Spirit (John 3) and then "the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit" (8 v 5).

How Do People Respond TO Jesus

People have mixed feelings about Jesus. Some people say that He is 'a good teacher'. Some people think that He 'gives us an example to live by'. Some people just reject Him completely. How do we respond to Jesus? He gives us a parable to help us understand our response to Him and why it matters
