Sermon – Gospel Future and Glory (Romans 15:13-16:27)

Romans 9-16 Slide

The Letter to the Romans is a rich treasure trove for an Christian. In this talk we come to the end of the letter. Good theology has been put into practice. So to close the letter, the Apostle Paul wants the church in Rome (and by extension, Christians to today) to be ministers of Christ Jesus – in prayer, in partnership, in proclaiming the gospel where it is not known.

Christians have ever reason to boldly live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sermon – Living Loving Sacrifice: service (Romans 14-15)

True worship shows itself in acceptance and service. In this talk we consider a Christian should approach others whom they might be tempted to look down upon. Our world does it, Christians shouldn’t.

Sermon – Theological Gardening (Rom 11:11-36)

Romans 9-16 Slide

God is sovereign over salvation – he shows his mercy in his time. Human arrogance has no place under mercy of God. This talk will recognize that God is sovereign, and we are not! He can and does use human rebellion for his purposes and so it is possible that even when someone stumbles, he will use that for their good.

Sermon – Home Goal: Rejecting the given gospel (Romans 9:1-10:13)

Romans 9-16 Slide

Can we recognize God’s sovereignty over all things with humanity’s responsibility in some things. In this talk, we look at what Paul taught the Roman church about God’s mercy in election – such that anyone who hears, believes and confirms Jesus as their Lord can be confident in their salvation.

Sermons – Hope in…

Hope Series Graphic

‘Hope’ is a well used term, yet one that is easily misunderstood. This three part series aims to help Christians understand and be equipped as children of God to live in a world that is flawed, fraught and fallen yet still under the glorious umbrella of hope in Christ.

Using the Letter to the Romans as a springboard, this series will look to address the topics of Judgement, Suffering and Predestination – whilst recognizing that ‘creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.’ (Romans 8:20-21)

Sermon: Unshakeable Confidence (Romans 8:31-39)

Romans 1-8 Slide

‘We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him’ (Rom 8:28). What a promise! Yet, the promise here is not that ‘all things’ will be good – but that in ‘all things’ God would do what is good.

How do we know?

Sermon – Groaning in Hope (Romans 8:18-30)

Romans 1-8 Slide

Amid the many challenges we have in life, both as Christians and as participants in a fallen and broken world, we need not waver in hope. God himself is with us and working in and around us in everything to ensure that what he has promised us in Christ will indeed eventuate. So we wait patiently, relying on him.
