A lot of people say they believe in God or Jesus – but what does that really mean? What kind of belief does God want us to have? A short sermon looking at what it means to believe. Part two of the ‘Seven Signs in John’ series.
See the previous sermon on John 2:1-11 (Jesus turns water into wine) here.
This is the start of a new series on the seven signs in John’s Gospel. In this first sermon (on John 2:1-11) we look at Jesus turning water into wine. (It starts out with a short intro and the passage being read)
A short sermon on Psalm 91, looking at how God is the one who keeps us safe from everything going on in the world. I chose this passage particularly because I think a lot of people are worried about what’s going on at the moment with the coronavirus, but it’s relevant all the time.
It seems like we are living in dark days at the moment. 2020 has been a very strange year for everyone. But there have been dark times before. The people of Israel in the Old Testament experienced lots of dark times – yet Isaiah here prophecied of how that darkness would turn to light.
This sermon looks at the darkness, the light, and how God was going to bring them from one to the other. The good news is, it’s something which is for us as well!
Advent is a season where we look back to Christ’s first coming, and look ahead to his second coming. It’s a good opportunity to remind ourselves that we are waiting, and consider whether we are making the most of our time. In this passage, Matthew 24:36-51, Jesus asks us to consider whether we are keeping watch, whether we are waiting well.
Yesterday in our church we began a new sermon series for Advent. I was preaching, the passage was Hebrews 1:1-4. The idea behind this series is to try to understand that Jesus is more than a ‘baby in a manger’: people often like to see the manger at Christmas time, but then leave Jesus there.
In this sermon we think about three reasons we shouldn’t leave Jesus in the manger!
A sermon on Ecclesiastes 12:9-14, part of a sermon series on Ecclesiastes preached at our church. As you can probably tell, this sermon was actually recorded at home due to the present lockdown restrictions in the UK!I apologise for the camera focus issues at the beginning. I hope it doesn’t distract too much.
In the final part of this series, The Teacher finishes off by giving us a summary of wisdom. Why should we listen to him, and what is wisdom in a nutshell?

People sometimes think Christians are “anti-joy”. That couldn’t be further from the truth: God wants us to find joy. In fact, it’s wrong not to find joy as Christians. But the joy that God wants us to have is more than the joy the world can give. How do we find joy beyond the things of this lifetime?
