In Isaiah 42, we’ve heard how the servant of the Lord would bring justice and light to the nations so that God’s praise might fill the earth. But this wasn’t currently happening. And not only were all nations not singing praise to God, even his people Israel had failed to do this. So now, Isaiah […]
Before he concludes his greetings, Paul changes course to give a few final words of exhortation to the saints in Rome. His love for the church leads to a desire to protect the church from threats that could undermine their unity. Like the Lord Jesus in his high priestly prayer, he wants to see the […]
Since chapter 9, Paul has been considering the unbelief of Israel and their rejection of the Gospel. As Paul concludes his second survey of this question in chapter 10, he gives two possible explanations for why Israel hasn’t called on the name of the Lord before providing us with the answer.

It wasn’t just to receive the land of Canaan but ultimately the entire world as his inheritance! In this sermon, pastor Matt once again teaches that […]
Having described the horrible and hopeless condition of humanity in Romans 1:18-3:20, Paul answers the all-important question: Since it is true that there is no one righteous, then how can anyone ever be right with God? How can anyone escape his holy wrath against sin, be liberated from the curse of the law, and delivered […]
