Mistakes pile up. So do sins, failures and misplaced priorities that have hurt you and others, and have gone against God. But guess what? You are still lovable. Jesus died for you knowing you. That’s what this Good Friday sermon explores on John 19.
It’s the ‘Age of Melancholy.’ People are despairing (for a lot of reasons). So what is your reason for hope, and how can you be a healing presence to others? That’s what this sermon on John 4:43-54 explores.
Jesus saves. But from what? And FOR what? In short, more than you think on both accounts. This sermon on John 4:27-42 seeks to expend our understanding of what a Saviour is as we invite him to work in the troubled parts of our lives.
What do you seek? The weekend, more friends? God SEEKS people to worship him “in the Spirit and in truth.” So that’s clearly what we should be shooting for. But what does it mean, and how do we do it? That’s what I explore in this sermon on John 4:1-26.
While cleansing the Temple Jesus was full of “zeal.” What is it? (Because we too should have it.) This sermon on John 2:13-25 explores this idea and encourages us to move from ritual to relationship in our faith.
It’s one of his most popular sermons. Turning water into wine — and over 700 bottles! But why? And how does this influence how we think about our dignity and honour? That’s what this sermon on John 2:1-12 explores.
We want to be whole-hearted, balanced and refreshed. And yet, many are feeling half-hearted, off-centred and tired! Good news: The Holy Spirit makes your spirit whole. That’s what I explore in this sermon on John 1:19-34.
Is my life headed in the right direction? It is… if you’re following the right person. In this sermon on John 1:1-5, I give an overview of the book and invite us to look to these 5 verses as an evaluative tool for the questions that matter most.
We are living in a time of upheaval, a stampede of fear. In this concise Christmas Eve message I look at Luke 2: 8-14 and explain how fear retreats when Christ advances.
What does it mean that Jesus is the “radiance of God’s glory,” and how do we bask in it? The right kind of light makes you see things you didn’t see before. This sermon is a high-level summary of our series on Hebrews.
Are you open to hearing from God for this specific chapter of your life? Do you need a word of caution, counsel, or encouragement? This is what we explore directly in this sermon on Hebrews 5:11-6:12.
When you’re in over your head, you go to who you know for help. When we don’t take our most urgent pleas to God, it might be a symptom of not knowing his heart. This sermon on Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10 shows how when you know God’s heart, you’re more likely to open yours.
Like an appetizer before a meal, one day a week for rest and worship is meant to whet your appetite for that glorious day when we’ll truly rest from worry, pain, work and fear. This sermon on Hebrews 4:1-13 explains why and how.
What if there was a new kind of “displaced person” walking among us but who was outwardly unidentifiable? And what if God’s people could help? That’s what I explore in this sermon on Hebrews 3:1-6.
When you’re going through something tough, someone else who has “been there” can be a real encouragement, help and source of wisdom. That’s what I explore in this sermon on Hebrews 2:5-18 about the humanity of Christ.
You can have courage for the battle when you have confidence in your leader. That’s what the book of Hebrews (and this sermon on the 1st 3 verses) does: provide clarity about Jesus.
What is the difference between “the good life” and a great life? That’s what I explore in this sermon on Acts 20:13-38 and Paul’s farewell speech to the Ephesian elders. Yes, count your blessings; but count what truly counts.
Do you ever feel strange because of your faith? What if (a) that wasn’t so bad, and (b) there was a purpose in it? This sermon on Acts 17:16-34 and Paul among the philosophers at Athens provides some answers and direction.
Are you feeling under strain? Would you like to know a little thing that is actually a big thing and which can help you navigate your trials? In this sermon on Acts 16:16-34 I explore Paul and Silas singing in prison and the power of… music!
We have been living through a state of emergency perpetually. But we weren’t built for that. In this sermon on Psalm 116 I explore a faithful response to living in the wake of individual and collective trauma.
