Every Last Word with Dr. Philip Graham Ryken



Sunday, December 9, 2018

Dr. Philip Graham Ryken

John the Baptist and Jesus Christ met while their mothers were still carrying them in their wombs. Elizabeth acknowledged the young One in Mary’s womb as Lord, and John leapt in excitement. It was an incredible encounter, a meeting of the two covenants, Old and New.


The Annunciation - Sunday, December 2, 2018

An angel visits a young girl, telling her that she would conceive and bear a son. His name was to be God saves, and He was to be son of the Most High. He would be given the throne of David, His father.

Getting Ready for Jesus - Sunday, November 25, 2018

As the early Christians looked back at Jesus’ ministry, they recognized what God had done through Him. They also realized that God’s work had actually been started through John the Baptist. John was the forerunner, the herald, sent ahead to announce the coming of Christ.

Knowing for Sure - Sunday, November 18, 2018

Doubt. Little by little it gnaws away at the soul. Now to be sure, there are times when Christianity seems to make all the sense in the world—when the mysteries of the faith appear so certain that it would be foolish even to call them into question, and yet there are also times when we have our doubts.

Art for God's Sake - Sunday, November 11, 2018

Have you ever looked at a work of modern art and been puzzled as to its message or purpose? So much of the art in the world today seems to be odd that we find it hard to fit it into our Christian world-view. But what’s the bigger question … what role do the arts play in the church today? What does God say about the arts? And what kind of art glorifies God?

Bought with a Price - Sunday, November 4, 2018

“You belong to me.” Did you know that there are over 50 songs that have been written about those four simple words? Jazz, pop, country -- artists of all kinds of music have written lyrics about this concept that conveys such strong feelings. But these feelings didn’t start with us.

Sweet Altar of Prayer - Sunday, October 28, 2018

Is your prayer life where you want it to be? Do you ever feel like the words you’re trying to lift up to God’s ear just fall to the floor the minute they leave your lips? We all feel like that at times.

The Big Picture - Sunday, October 21, 2018

Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is? It’s easy to wonder -- we don’t always feel like our lives are achieving any greatness. Well, there is a purpose...but with all the difficulties and distractions of daily life, it is easy for us to get lost in the details.

The Ordination of the Priests - Sunday, October 14, 2018

We often describe our Christian communities as a “body of believers” or “God’s church family.” You might call yourself a “believer” or a “follower of Christ.” But do you ever think of yourself as a priest, or as part of a royal priesthood?

Fit for a Priest - Sunday, October 7, 2018

Most of us wear our “Sunday best” for church. We try to look a little nicer than normal, as it’s after all for worship. So too the priests of Israel had fine garments they had to wear when entering into God’s presence. But one Priest didn’t wear them when he made His sacrifice. He didn’t need outward splendor -- he had a splendor all his own.
