After a lifetime of anticipation, the righteous man Simeon beheld the precious gift of the Son of God, and, looking into the eyes of his salvation, he proclaimed something that amazed Joseph and Mary – something they had not yet heard. This Child would be a light to the Gentiles and for the rise and fall of many in Israel.
One woman, Anna, stood in a family lineage of belief in stark contrast to a tribe and nation of unbelief and idolatry. More importantly, the testimony of her life proved the validity of her brief message, announcing Jesus as the gift of salvation. What about her made her so credible? Luke provides the answer.
There was no Evening Worship Service on the Sunday of December 20th, 2015 due to the time being instead dedicated to High Point Baptist Church’s Annual Business Meeting. Therefore, there is no PM Sermon for that date. Thank you for showing interest in High Point Baptist Church’s pulpit ministry.
After a lifetime of anticipation, a man’s first Christmas gift is also his last after seeing the very Son of God. Not much is known about the man, except three of the most important characteristics that could ever be ascribed to anyone. He was declared righteous, pursued the Comforter, and was filled with the Spirit of God.
American Christianity has long ago compromised on the exclusivity of the Gospel message, opting instead for the same ecumenicalism of the Roman Catholic Church. Christ is no longer believed to be the way, the truth, and the life. This kind of “wide-mercy” view of salvation is not the way of Scripture, but for Roman Catholicism, their ecumenicalism presents another problem: they have canonized infallibly that salvation cannot be granted to anyone unless they submit to the pope. Their position today contradicts that, presenting their system with some major problems.
Mark 8 presents the first account in the Gospel of Mark of a healing of a blind man, but the story proposes numerous questions, perhaps chief among them being, “Why did Jesus heal the man in two stages?” This is the only time He does that, and it is also the only time when Jesus asks the recipient of a healing a question, rather than making a pronouncement. Is there a reason?
On December 6th, 2015, we were blessed by a visit from Pastor Tom Hutchinson and members of Living Hope Baptist Church, our supported sister church in the Pocono Region. Since this was not a traditional “sermon” and was more so a series of testimonies of the Lord’s work at LHBC, the audio for the 12/6 Evening Service will not be posted on the SermonCast. However, the audio will be made available to anyone upon request. If you would like to request a download link, please submit a request to our web team.

The Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herod have shown themselves to be dangerous enemies of Christ and His mission time and time again. It would seem natural then that Jesus would warn His disciples to beware the influence of their leaven. But as soon as He says, “leaven,” all the disciples seem interested in is bread. Jesus, disappointed with their lack of perceptiveness to spiritual truth, reminds them that the spiritual things are far more important than the physical.
