Today is the Sixth Day of Christmas. We are not even half-way through the season, yet as far as the world is concerned, Christmas is over.

Peter reminds us that Christ, the cornerstone, was rejected. We likewise may be rejected. However, Christ is the promised saving stone from Isaiah and the Psalms. Though we may be rejected like Christ, there will be no shame when the ultimate judgement Comes. The stone is a sure blessing of salvation for those who believe, but it is a rock of offence condemning those who reject it.
To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold,…

The Psalms of Ascent
Philip Layne • Grace Baptist Church – Sheboygan • Sermon • • 21 views • 44:40
Psalm 132 raises our eyes to new heights, to consider not only the riches of God’s forgiveness, but the even greater inheritance he gives his people—a city that will never pass away, in a kingdom that endures forever, a place where he dwells with us and we with him. This is an inheritance which is only possible because of the riches of God’s work in and through Christ, and that work is here anticipated by the psalmist as he rejoices in how God had chosen to make Zion the place of his dwelling.

Standing in GOD's Grace Amidst Suffering
Laron Evans • Sermon • • 12 views
When my brothers and sisters and I were young, my father used to often tell us many wise sayings, which many of them stemmed from spiritual teachings. One of them that has probably been most prominent in my life and memory goes like this “Know yourself! Because if one doesn’t know himself, anyone can…
