Sermon on Nov 24, 2019

Luke 18:9-14

Please turn with me in your Bible to Luke chapter 18; Luke chapter 18. Tonight we are concluding a Sunday night mini-series looking at the parables of Jesus. Tonight we will be in Luke chapter 18, verses 9 to 14. And so the question for us tonight is this. “Who gets to be in the kingdom of heaven?” 

Let me invite you to take up God’s Word and to turn with me to the gospel of Matthew this evening as we read from Matthew 25:14-30. In our evening services, many of you will remember, over the last few weeks we’ve been studying a number of the parables. And the one we’re going to be looking at this evening is a parable that encourages us to faithfully...

Sermon on Nov 17, 2019

1 Peter 3:1-7

We have been working through 1 Peter together as a church on Sunday mornings and we come to one of those passages that preachers often dread, and you’ll see why in due course. Peter is engaged in a practical section of the letter. He began by outlining for us the main contours of the Christian Gospel and now he is applying those truths to a number of practical...

Elect Exiles

Sermon on Nov 10, 2019

1 Peter 2:18-25

And I want us to think through Peter’s answer under three headings. He essentially says three things about how to live for Christ in difficult circumstances. He says first we need to learn to live under the gaze of God. We need to learn to live coram Deo, “before the face of God,” to live for His smile and His blessing and not the approval or good opinion...

Sermon on Nov 10, 2019

Isaiah 42

And I wish we had the time this passage really deserves to dwell on those details, but we simply don’t. All we can really do is pick out a few of the prominent details and meditate on them. Let me mention three for your consideration this evening. First, I want you to see that the Father delights in His servant. The Father delights in His servant. Secondly, the...

Numbers 14:24

Well tonight I want to address a subject with you of following God fully. Following God fully. I want to look at the meaning of it - by grace, what it means that Caleb followed God fully. Second, I want to look at the root of it - in grace, why Caleb could follow God fully. And third, I want to look at its reward - a reward...

Luke 12:35-48

Luke 12:35-48 really is not just one parable; it’s three mini-parables. And there’s one unifying theme. Each one of these mini-parables points to the certainty of the return of Christ. And that should give us pause because scholars, as they talk about these three parables, say that these are among the weightiest parables in the New Testament. They deal with the dominant New Testament doctrine repeated more often...

Elect Exiles

Sermon on Oct 20, 2019

1 Peter 2:13-17

Through verse 12 of chapter 2, we’ve seen Peter give us, you might say, general theological and practical principles. And now, beginning in our passage this morning, he’s going to press some of those principles into the particular areas and contexts of our Christian lives. He will speak, for example, as we’ll see in a few weeks’ time, about slaves and masters, husbands and wives. Here, in verses...

Sermon on Oct 20, 2019

Luke 11:5-13

What does Jesus give us here that might actually change us, that might wake us up and motivate us to pray? Well He gives us in verses 5 to 13 these two brief parables and they focus on the identity and the character of the One hearing our prayers. First in verses 5 to 10, to motivate you to pray you have to see that God is your...
