God’s megaphone – Exodus 8:20-9:35 Sermon

One of the biggest and most common questions in the Christian life is “Why?” Why did this happen to me or us; or why does someone not listen to God? The Bible often doesn’t answer the ‘why’ question specifically, but in this passage we have a rare glimpse into the reason why God acted as he did with Pharaoh.

Feeling Sorrow – Practical Guide to Holiness #9

National Repentance – Joel 2:12-17 Sermon

Repentance is a word which has been conspicuously absent from our covid response over the last year. It’s one of the most important words in the Christian vocabulary! I believe we need to urgently consider what repentance means for us at this time.

This is a one-off sermon – we will return to the seven signs in John’s Gospel next week.

Repentance: (2) Confession – 1 John 1:5-10

This episode is only available on audio – you may listen to it online here.

The second part of the series in repentance (unfortunately I didn’t record the first part!) The passage is 1 John 1:5-10. 

The book I mention is called “The Doctrine of Repentance” by Thomas Watson, a puritan, and – because it is well out of copyright – is available for free online e.g. here. These sermons are based on his section “Ingredients of Repentance” – the first one we looked at was sorrow for sin.

Sermon preached at St Mark’s Church on Wednesday 11th March.
