Sermons on Matthew

It’s (not) Finished: the Promise

The message begins by looking at Christ’s unbroken relationship with His disciples; then shows that our journey must continue, because Christ continues to be committed to us and has more to show us of Himself. Matthew 28:7-10 English Standard Version (ESV) 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the…

It is Finished: The Prison

This message begins by looking at the Respect of the First Good Friday; the Fear of the first Easter Saturday then culminates in the peace and power of the Resurrection morning.

New Testament Worship

This message follows the ‘journey’ of the wisemen as they seek God through creation; are guided by Biblical insight; are able to rejoice in the darkness and fall down in God-honouring worship 11 And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening…

Adultery

Sin cuts deep But in Christ, we are healed. By Grace Through Faith 2 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of…

Murder

God is our judge and in Christ, He is found merciful. Matthew 5:21-26 English Standard Version (ESV) Anger 21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his…
