Pastor walks his children through Westminster Shorter Catechism question 9—especially explaining how God's method and timing of creation are designed to give Him all glory, especially in Christ and His church.
Q9. What is the work of creation? The work of creation is God's making all things of nothing, by the Word of His power, in the space of six days, and all very good.
Since we are now moving into the Christmas season I wanted to preach to you today about the essential glory of our Savior in relation to His Incarnation. In reading to you these first five verses, John would have us to know that our Lord Jesus Christ was, and He is, infinitely glorious in His Being as the 2nd Person of the Divine Trinity. I would like us to dwell at this time on the meaning and the implications of the 3 descriptive titles which are given to us here. 1st of all – That Christ is the Eternal Word of God. 2nd – That Christ is the Creator of all things. And 3rd – That Christ is the Light of this fallen World. How blessed a thing it is for any of us, when we can by faith behold the glory of our Pre-Incarnate Savior and Lord, and also our now Incarnate Savior and Lord.
This sermon was delivered on December 3, 2023 at Antioch Presbyterian Church, a mission work of Calvary Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America located in Woodruff, South Carolina.

During the Advent Season we once again pause to reflect upon the Greatest Gift mankind has ever received; the Hope of liberation from sin, death, and the tyranny of man.
This sermon is the first of a four-part series.
Because God's infinite majesty can be seen in the heavens, we ought to moved to awestruck humility to think that such a God would care for us and call us to rule this world in His stead – the very thing we have failed to do through sin, bringing ultimate fulfillment and restoration only through Christ.
I. The Majesty of God in the Beauty of Creation vv 1-2
II. The Majesty of Man made in God's Image vv 3-4
III. The Majesty God Intended, Broken then Restored vv 5-9; Heb 2:5-9
Job's arrogance peaked in chapters 29-31. After listening to Elihu's rebuke, Job would get what he wanted (23.3), but it would be the Lord who would put Job on trial and ask him a few questions of his own.
Author and researcher Donna Howell is here to uncover what God's first enemy did to Earth in the days it was "without form, and void", and what may have really happened in the days of Adam.

What is the inner life of a believer like? Matthew 5:4–6 prepares us for the morning sermon on the Lord's Day. In these three verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that the inner life of a believer is one of longing for Christ, and for what we shall be like, in Him, at last.
