    We don’t know when Psalm 119 was written, but we do know it was written after man’s fall. This means the writer knew what it was to experience different seasons of the soul. He knew the warm joy of springtime, and the dreary darkness of winter. The prolonged dark seasons are particularly dangerou...

    Freedom is a precious thing. Throughout history, cultures have valued it, gone to war over it, and individuals have sacrificed their lives for it. But there is a freedom that is more precious.

  • Trusting God in the Dark - Alistair Begg

    Suffering and tragedy are commonplace in the life of God's people. Our Father in Heaven does not desire that we put on a tough face and pretend to be unaffected by our afflictions.

  • When Rulers Are Corrupt (Psalm 82) - Don Green

    It’s hard to pray for corrupt and wicked leaders sometimes but God’s Word is clear. He would have us pray often for our rulers no matter what we think of them.

    What do Christians mean when we say that the Bible is “profitable” for life?

    When we pray, the important thing is not how long we pray or how intensely we voice our requests, but rather our focus should be on the Lord Himself. His character, His word, His promises. We look to Him, for He is all our hope and He will be gracious to those who wait on Him.

    What is Scripture? This sermon is the first of three messages in Psalm 119. Pastor Don Green begins with some of the adjectives that describe Scripture. It is true, faithful, and eternal. Nothing is as permanent as God's Word and nothing is more important for us to hear, believe, and act upon.

    God's Word is living and powerful. The Holy Spirit takes the Word of God and convicts sinners of sin and encourages saints to trust and obey the Lord.
