A sermon from Galatians 5 on how the God the Spirit works faith in us by constantly showing and reminding us how faithful God the Father is.
Whenever preachers get up to speak about the topic of love, they usually go to passages like 1 Corinthians 13. They are apt to do so — for there, under the Spirit's design and influence, the apostle Paul gives the Christian the most complete view of love we've ever been given. The chapter covers all the facets of love, leaving us to forever plumb the deep meanings of this beautiful passage.

A sermon from Ecclesiastes 1 and 3 on finding true joy, and how it's only found in Jesus.
In this show, we get into the story behind Mockingbird, where it's been and where it's going in the future. We also talk about the mission behind Mockingbird in discerning between God's law and God's gospel.
When endeavoring to define faith in the biblical sense, teachers and preachers hasten to bring their audience to Hebrews 11. This, of course, is the "faith chapter," or the "hall of faith" (as it's commonly called).
