Ephesians 6:4: Fathers

Father’s Day is approaching soon, but it has been called ‘an awkward holiday.’ It will not only be awkward because of the token gifts which seem to trivialize it, as has happened to Mother’s Day. It will not only be awkward because of the many who have toxic fathers who have been a source of trauma and abuse. It will be awkward because of the sexual revolution we are a part of and the attack on the nuclear family. The transgender revolution has created a situation where natural women identifying as men who give birth to children do not...

Luke 12:22-34: Do Not Be Anxious

There are two hands with which we hold onto the things of this life, there is the hand of greed and the hand of worry. The hand of greed holds onto things out of a desire for them believing the lie that they need them in order to be happy; the hand of worry holds onto things out of a desire to survive thinking that it needs these things for life. Some of us pursue the things of this life because of our insatiable desires; some of us pursue things because of our illogical fear. The iron grip of...

Ephesians 5:1-2: Imitators of God

Motivation is something we have wrestled with all our lives. You will remember when your parents gave what appeared to you to be unreasonable rules and when you asked why you had to do them, and they responded, ‘Because I said so,’ you know how you felt. You might have been willing to obey but you needed to know why, you needed the proper motivation, especially when what was required went against your desires. Paul is the master teacher who tells us what to do and then motivates us to do it as well. The pattern of Paul’s method...

Luke 11:5-13: Encouragements to Pray

Jesus as the master-teacher on prayer knows that we have more than one problem with prayer, not knowing what to pray for; but we also have a problem in how we pray, our uncertainty in prayer. We all struggle with a lack of faith and that lack of faith will reflect in our praying. Our faith is small because our knowledge of God is small, we do not view Him as generous and willing. Our faith is small because our view of the gospel is small, therefore our sins loom large and we think God is unwilling to hear...

Luke 11:1-4: The Lord’s Prayer: Father

We apologise that there is no audio recording for this sermon. Prayer, one of the easiest and the hardest of things to do; one of the simplest and the most theologically mysterious and complex of things. I love what Andrew Murray says about prayer, ‘Though in its beginnings prayer is so simple that the feeblest child can pray. Yet it is at the same time the highest and holiest work to which man can rise. It is fellowship with the Unseen and Most Holy One. The powers of the eternal world have been placed at its disposal. It is...

Ephesians 3:14-19: Praying for power

Praying when we are in need is easy, we always pray from the heart, but praying for others often deteriorates into shallow requests without heart. We often pray generic prayers for health, provision, and spiritual well-being. Paul in the portion before us prays under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, prayers of pastoral care, and prayers that flow out of the realities of the gospel. Paul as a minister of the gospel is not only called to preach the message of Christ to the Gentiles, but to pray for the church as well. Eph. 3:14-21 consists of 2 main...
