Luke 17:22-37: The Day When the Son of Man is Revealed

INTRODUCTION What is the meaning of history? Where is everything going? What is it all for? We live in a day of fear and uncertainty. Many are caught up in the fear of a future that is looking very bleak due to the effects of climate change; or a future living in a post-Covid world; or a future controlled by Neo-Marxist governments; or a future of constant digital surveillance. Many have a view of the future that is dark and hopeless. Every generation has lived with the harsh realities of living in a fallen world pressing in upon them....

Jesus Christ as an argument for Christianity

Introduction: One of the greatest proofs of the truthfulness of Christianity is Jesus Christ Himself. Once at a dinner party on St Helena Napoleon was part of a discussion on who Jesus Christ was. He sat silently while everyone else shared their opinions. Some thought him man others thought Him God, at the end of it all Napoleon declared, ‘I know men, and Jesus was no man.’ He is considered to be the most influential person in history. One author highlights the following: ‘We have no record of his date of birth, yet all the world’s chronology is linked...

Easter Sunday: John 18:1-11: The Arrest of Christ

INTRODUCTION: I had a completely different sermon planned for this one, but in my meditations this week I was drawn to the passage where Jesus is arrested in John 18:1-11.  John’s gospel is unique among the four gospels and tends to focus our attention on the glory of Christ as the Son of God.  For this reason we see John not lingering on the garden of Gethsemane when Jesus was toiling in His weakness to submit Himself to God’s wrath for our sins. No, instead we see John brushes over that in v1-2, ‘When Jesus had spoken these words, he...

Easter Sunday: Revelation 5: The Resurrected Lamb

INTRODUCTION: Jesus Christ is risen from the dead!  But what is the significance of this?  Is it merely a miracle to prove Jesus is who He said He is? Is it only relevant to prove that our salvation is real, and that sins have been paid for?  It is all this and more.  Today I would like to talk about the resurrection of Christ as the beginning of the end.  It is because Christ is resurrected and ascended on high and taken the throne at the right hand of the Father that God’s plan to overcome satan and sin and...

Good Friday Sermon: Matthew 26:36-46: The Prayers Of Gethsemane

INTRODUCTION: Today in our Good Friday meditation we will be considering Jesus under the shadow of the cross in the Garden of Gethsemane.  The name Gethsemane means ‘oil press’ and seems a very appropriate name for the place where Jesus would pray the hardest prayer any human has ever prayed.  As we proceed to the Garden to look not only into another’s grief, but the grief of the Holy One who is submitting Himself to His Fathers punishment for our sins, we must beg the aid of the Spirit, we are not only treading on mysteries but holy ground. ...
