Babylonian Heart
Jul 23, 2017 • 38 min

The Fallen
May 14, 2017 • 47 min

All In The Family
May 7, 2017 • 39 min

The Judgment
Mar 19, 2017 • 41 min
In Genesis 3:14-19 God pronounces judgment for the sin committed in the garden. God’s love for sinners in no way eliminates His holy hatred for sin, for while it’s true that “God is love” (1 John 4:8, 16), it’s also true that “God is light” (1:5). A…
The Symptoms of Sin
Mar 12, 2017 • 54 min
Adam and Eve should have been running to God, confessing their sin, and asking for His forgiveness. But instead, they were hiding from God, and He had to find them. “There is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God” (Rom. 3:11). God does…
The Art of Deception
Mar 5, 2017 • 37 min
Today we move into one of the most pivotal places in all of Scripture. If Genesis 3 were not in the Bible, there would be no Bible as we know it. Why? Because the rest of Scripture documents the sad consequences of Adam’s sin and explains what God in Hi…
The Essence of Humanity
Feb 26, 2017 • 54 min
At the close of the sixth day of creation, God had surveyed everything He had made and pronounced it “very good” (1:31). But now God says that there’s something in His wonderful world that is not good: the man is alone. In fact, in the Hebrew text, the…
God Finishes What He Starts
Feb 12, 2017 • 39 min

The Giver of Life
Feb 5, 2017 • 42 min

Good And Faithful Servant
Sep 25, 2016 • 42 min

Dealing With Deceitfulness
Aug 28, 2016 • 46 min

The Stewardeship of Shepherding
Aug 21, 2016 • 39 min

Who’s Fault Is It?
Apr 24, 2016 • 42 min
Who are we to argue with God? This is a logical argument. God is the Potter and we are the clay. God is wiser than we are, and we are foolish to question His will or to resist it. (The reference here is to Isa. 45:9.) To be sure, the clay has no life…
Children Of The Promise
Apr 17, 2016 • 58 min

Übermensch (Superman)
Apr 3, 2016 • 40 min
Today we finish up in Romans 8:35-39. Jesus Christ loves us and gives us the victory. This is not a promise with conditions attached: “If you do this, God will do that.” This security in Christ is an established fact, and we claim it for ourselves…
Dead Or Alive
Mar 27, 2016 • 37 min
On this Resurrection Sunday, we’re reminded from our text in Romans chapter 8:31-34 that Jesus died and rose again. The same Savior who died for us is now interceding for us in heaven. As our High Priest, He can give us the grace we need to overcome tem…
He’s Praying For You
Mar 20, 2016 • 37 min
On this Palm Sunday we’re in Romans chapter 8:24-30. God is concerned about the trials of His people. When He was ministering on earth, Jesus groaned when He saw what sin was doing to mankind (Mark 7:34; John 11:33, 38). Today the Holy Spirit groans…
Looking Forward To Future Glory
Mar 13, 2016 • 47 min
Today we’re in Romans chapter 8:18-23. When God finished His creation, it was a good creation (Gen. 1:31), but today it is a groaning creation. There is suffering and death; there is pain, all of which is, of course, the result of Adam’s sin. It is not…
Mortal Combat

Today we’re in Romans chapter 8:12-17. It is not enough for us to have the Spirit; the Spirit must have us! Only then can He share with us the abundant, victorious life that can be ours in Christ. We have no obligation to the flesh, because the flesh…
Indwelling Spirit
Feb 28, 2016 • 40 min
Today we’re in Romans chapter 8:9-11. The evidence of conversion is the presence of the Holy Spirit within, witnessing that you are a child of God (Rom. 8:16). Your body becomes the very temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19–20). Even though the body…
Indwelling Sin
Feb 14, 2016 • 42 min
Today we’re in Romans chapter 7:14-25. The statements here indicate that the believer has two serious problems: (1) he cannot do the good he wants to do, and (2) he does the evil that he does not want to do. Does this mean that Paul could not stop himse…
Is It Legal?
Feb 7, 2016 • 42 min
Today we’re in Romans chapter 7:7-13. Paul’s objectors were ready! “What good is the law if we don’t need it anymore? Why, a teaching such as yours turns the law into sin!” In answering that objection, Paul explained the ministries of the law,…
Till Death Do Us Part
Jan 31, 2016 • 42 min
Today we’re in Romans chapter 7:1-6. These verses actually continue the discussion that Paul began in Romans 6:15, answering the question, “Shall we sin because we are not under the law, but under grace?” He used the illustration of a master and servant…
Buried With Christ, Raised To Life!
Jan 17, 2016 • 41 min

From Adam To Jesus
Jan 10, 2016 • 44 min
Today we’re in Romans chapter 5:12-21. How is it possible for God to save sinners in the person of Jesus Christ? We understand that somehow Christ took our place on the cross, but how was such a substitution possible? Paul answered the question in this…

Christ Is Christmas!
Dec 20, 2015 • 29 min
When Mary said “Be it unto me according to thy word” (Luke 1:38), it meant that from then on, her life would be a part of the fulfillment of divine prophecy. God had promised that the Savior would be a human, not an angel (Gen. 3:15; Heb. 2:16), and a…
The Promise
Dec 6, 2015 • 46 min
Pastor Eddie will be teaching from Romans chapter 4. The fact that Abraham was justified by grace and not law proves that salvation is for all men. Abraham is the father of all believers, both Jews and Gentiles (Rom. 4:16; Gal. 3:7, 29). Instead of the …
Undeserved
Nov 29, 2015 • 40 min
Today we begin chapter 4 of the book of Romans. The Jewish Christians in Rome would immediately have asked, “How does this doctrine of justification by faith relate to our history? Paul, you say that this doctrine is witnessed to by the law and the…
Falling Short
Nov 8, 2015 • 47 min
We continue our study in the book of Romans chapter 3 verses 19-26. God gave His law to the Jews, not to the Gentiles, but the good news of salvation through Christ is offered to all men. All men need to be saved. There is no difference between the Jew…
Fear God
Nov 1, 2015 • 37 min

Guilty As Charged
Oct 25, 2015 • 37 min
Today we continue our study in the third chapter of Romans. Paul had already proved (charged) both Jews and Gentiles to be guilty before God. Next he declared that all men were sinners, and proved it with several quotations from the Old Testament. Note…
What Advantage?
Oct 11, 2015 • 47 min
Today we will be diving into the third chapter of Romans and we’ll see that God is perfectly faithful and perfectly just. Even though we and the world around us may change God does not. He is the solid rock on which we stand; the Cornerstone. Let’s talk…
Cut It Out
Oct 4, 2015 • 37 min
Today we conclude our study in chapter 2 of Romans. Circumcision was the great mark of the covenant, and it had its beginning with Abraham, the father of the Jewish nation (Gen. 17). To the Jews, the Gen-tiles were “uncircumcised dogs.” The tragedy is t…
The Hypocrite
Sep 27, 2015 • 35 min
We continue our study in chapter 2 of Romans. The Jewish people had a religion of outward action, not inward attitude. They may have been moral on the outside, but what about the heart? Our Lord’s indictment of the Pharisees in Matthew 23 illustrates th…
The Perfect Judge
Sep 13, 2015 • 46 min
We continue our study in chapter 2 of Romans. Today I hope to stir one another up to a deeper and more radical obedience to Jesus in our lives. I hope to admonish you and the rest of our church family to be doers of the word and not only hearers. We…
Judging Others
Sep 6, 2015 • 37 min
We continue our study in chapter 2 of Romans. The whole point of this section is that God judges according to righteousness—in truth (v. 2), according to works (v. 6), without partiality (v. 11). Rejecting the truth (v. 8) is lack of faith—it is the sin…
Eternal Life/Eternal Wrath
Aug 30, 2015 • 40 min
We continue our study in chapter 2 of the book of Romans. Paul was not teaching salvation by character or good deeds. He was explaining another basic principle of God’s judgment: God judges according to deeds, just as He judges according to truth. Paul…
Who Me?
Aug 16, 2015 • 31 min
Finally! We launch into chapter 2 of Romans. Certainly the Jews would applaud Paul’s condemnation of the Gentiles in Romans 1:18–32. In fact, Jewish national and religious pride encouraged them to despise the “Gentile dogs” and have nothing to do with t…
Truth For Lies
Aug 2, 2015 • 57 min
From idolatry to immorality is just one short step. If man is his own god, then he can do whatever he pleases and fulfill his desires without fear of judgment. We reach the climax of man’s battle with God’s truth when man exchanges the truth of God for…
Free Indeed!
Jun 7, 2015 • 31 min
