Genesis 3:1-7

If you name the name of Jesus Christ and are found a fellow citizen in His heavenly Kingdom, then you can be assured of one thing, though all may seem calm and well.  Do not be fooled; there is a vicious enemy that wars against your soul 24-7, 365 days of the week; a ferocious and tenacious foe that rests not day and night along with his band of minions, plotting your very downfall.  See the many warnings given us in God’s Holy Word, calling us to be a people of watchfulness and exhorting us to prayer. 

In this sermon, we discover the secrets of Satan’s wiles in the area of temptation so that we might remain firm and steadfast in the hour of his testing.

Luke 10:38-42

We increasingly live in a culture where responsibility is shirked, duties are neglected, and it’s far easier to blame everyone else for why things are in the mess they are.  For all of man’s advancements, in the field of science and medicine, technology and industry; for all of his increase financially; it seems that he’s the worse for it!  Never have we known so many divorces, so many suicides, and so many people depressed.  Yet the sad reality is when one looks at the faces of many professing Christians, the same expressions of hopelessness that is seen in the world, is seen in them.  Where is our joy in the Holy Spirit? 

This sermon is an exhortation and an encouragement for us to return as Christians back to the simplicity of sitting at the feet of Jesus.

1 Corinthians 4:1-5

The longer that I’m alive and the longer that I continue in service to the Lord, is the more that I’ve come to realise, you can’t please everyone!!  What will be pleasing to one, will inevitably be the cause of displeasure to another and what will serve to light a smile on one face will no doubt serve to put a frown on another.  Of course, as a Christian, we’re mandated to let our light shine before men that in seeing our good works, they might give praise to God.  “In all things (writes Paul to Titus) shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.” (Tit. 2:7-8).  But what happens when after we have done this, we are still yet the target of men’s judgment and criticism?  Then, we must seek the approval and good pleasure of God alone by faithful obedience to that which He has called each of us to do!

In this sermon, we take a walk through the corridors of the Corinthian Church and in so doing, we see that carnality was alive and well!  One man esteemed Paul the greatest and another Apollos.  Yet when everything was said and done, Paul said: “Who…is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?" (1 Cor. 3:5).  There was one thing central in Paul’s mind; one motivating factor that kept him going. It was not his popularity status before men, but the fact that one day he would stand before the judgment seat of Christ in whose presence, every man's work will be made manifest by fire!  In light of this, it ought to be a small thing to every one of us that we should be judged by men!  May God give us the courage to go on in the face of discouragement and criticism!

Romans 8:12-28

The world as we know only too well, have a counterfeit joy called happiness, which of course is purely circumstantial and contingent upon events.  Christ’s joy, on the other hand, is not mere happiness per se, but a far deeper depth of treasure unmined by this passing world.  One man put it this way; “Joy is the deep-down sense of well-being that abides in the heart of the person who knows all is well between himself and the Lord”.  There’s no way of getting around this fact; joy comes to the believer as a direct consequence of a conscious union between God and men, through the person of Jesus Christ.   Circumstances come and go like the wind, but Christ abiding in the hearts of His people by the indwelling Holy Spirit is a fixed constant that is not subject to change!

In this sermon, we shall learn the secret of Christian joy and how this joy might remain in us.

Romans 8:12-28

Pastor John shares a very heartfelt message from the Book of Romans, encouraging believers to hold fast in suffering.  Oftentimes, when going through trials, one is prone to look at the immediate and in so doing, we fail to see the bigger picture of what God is actually doing; working in us a far greater weight of eternal glory.  May the Lord encourage you!

Matthew 28:19-20

The last words of our Lord, recorded by Matthew, were not, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”; the last words of our Lord were; “...and  lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world”. 

My Brothers and Sisters, take these words to heart!!  Let them be the meditation of your thoughts.  No matter what we go through as believers; no matter how great the offences and how bitter the disappointments; Jesus has promised that He’ll never leave us, nor forsake us, “So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me” (Heb. 13:5-6).

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

“Redeemed—how I love to proclaim it! Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb; Redeemed through His infinite mercy, His child, and forever, I am. Redeemed, redeemed, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb; redeemed, redeemed, His child, and forever, I am”.  We could go, singing the songs of Zion; forever grateful, for His great redeeming love which has been lavished upon us abundantly!!  When I think of my awful past and the manner of my former conduct; the things committed in secret of which I am now ashamed; there are no words to explain why I a former child of hell should be found a child of God, saving for the great grace and mighty love of God! 

In this sermon, we focus on the wonder of the saving grace and give glory for where God has taken us from.

Luke 8:41-56

No Christian has ever been rightly designated as such, without first having in them the seed of faith.  Yet friends, having faith in God; trusting in our Lord Jesus Christ is not a once and for all done thing.  Faith is not a one-time decision, but a continuation of ongoing decisions as we choose to place our trust and confidence in God and His Son.  Anyone who has walked for some time with the Lord, knows only too well that it’s a walk that is full of many obstacles and trials that have been in some cases designed and in other cases permitted, in order to cause our faith not only to work but also to be strengthened.

In this sermon, we look at a number of examples in the Gospels, where it seemed all hope at been removed.  Yet, in every case, though the situation seemed hopeless, it served as an opportunity to prove the power of God through faith!

Genesis 5:18-27

The greatest privilege ever to have been afforded to mankind is not the freedom to pursue life, liberty, and happiness.  It is not the right to a prompt and fair trial by jury and nor is it the right to vote.  These are all fantastic privileges that for the most part, we in the West take for granted; but I want to say Brethren, that a man can have all of these and yet miss the very purpose for which he was born into this world.  In the twenty-second verse of this fifth chapter of Genesis, we are confronted with these staggering words; “And Enoch walked with God”. 

I want to ask…what does it mean to walk with God?  I submit you cannot give a reasonable answer without the use of the word relationship.  Enoch walked with God i.e. Enoch had a relationship with God and this would have involved at its heart, fellowship.
