There is an interesting comment to last Sunday’s sermon to which I gave a short answer. Here are the promised links concerning baptismal regeneration.

A sermon by Piper.

A sermon by Spurgeon.

MacArthur on this question.

An interview concerning a book on baptism.

This will get you started if you really want to look into the subject in more depth.

Sermons on Confession of Sin November 20, 2007

Entitled “How Not to be a Mule” by John Piper (Psalm 32)

Another “How to…” Sermon where confession is a major component.

Of course, a sermon on 1 John 1:9 must be included. Make it two. And a third, this one from Spurgeon.

Spurgeon has a wonderful sermon from Luke 18:13 on confession that I haven’t found online yet but here is a different one in its place. I may post the other one later this week if I do not find it somewhere else. It’s a classic.

This one from Spurgeon is one of the better examples I’ve read of a sermon drawn on current events.

I try to link every week on Thursday or Friday to sermons touching on the passage of Scripture from which I’m preaching. Obviously that gets hard when (1) one does not have time to look for good sermons and (2) when the past two weeks have linked to the best ones already. I did save a good one for next week but this week I have only one to offer you. It’s a good one though. The condenscension of Christ is the basis for any giving that we might undertake. Enjoy!

2 Corinthians 8:9 from Spurgeon “The Condenscension of Christ”

Thoughts while preparing tomorrow’s study on Psalm 5 September 5, 2007

 From Spurgeon’s “Treasury of David” Ver. 12. As with a shield. Luther, when making his way into the presence of Cardinal Cajetan, who had summoned him to answer for his heretical opinions at Augsburg, was asked by one of the Cardinal’s minions, where he should find a shelter, if his patron, the Elector of Saxony, should desert him? “Under the shield of heaven!” was the reply. The silenced minion turned round, and went his way.

In verse 11 there are three different words translated with a form of the word joy. They mean “gladness”, “a joyful shout”, and a “victorious exulting joy”. This was David’s reality. I’m afraid we know little of the type of joy he experienced.

“After our Lord’s death was over, the blood of animals was not the type, but the blood of the grape. That which was terrible in prospect is joyous in remembrance. That which was blood in the shedding is wine in the receiving. It came from him with a wound, but it comes to us with a blessing.” Originally posted here by Mike Ratliff.

The Lord’s Table reminds us that the pivotal event in world history is the cross. It is not the invention of fire or the wheel neither is it the printing press or the computer as pivotal as all of these things were. The pivotal event in world history is the death of God’s Son on the cross establishing a new covenant between God and man. Everything before and after depend on the outcome of Christ’s death.
