Sermon – New Beginnings: Go and Live (John 4:43-54)

The Gospel of John introduces Jesus and gives him an extraordinary array of titles. Jesus does not disappoint. His teaching, his interactions, his miracles and his knowledge give those who meet him cause to question who he is – and as readers we also can look at these ‘encounters’ and decide for ourselves whether Jesus is worth another look. Perhaps a new beginning for a new year.

This talk challenges us to listen to God’s word, believe even if we can’t see, and as a result go and live out our faith in Jesus.

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 – Comfort, my people

 

In this final sermon at Trinity City, Chris Jolliffe shows from Isaiah chapter 40 the extent of God’s comfort to his people, with forgiveness of sin through Jesus’ death.
Then we are shown more of God’s wonderful promises in Isaiah and reminded of God’s sovereign power and faithfulness – our God will keep every one of his promises. One of which is that our God will come (as Jesus) in power to save and bring peace and that he will also be our perfect shepherd, caring and loving.
Next Chris looks to the second part of Isaiah 40 to remind us that God knows our weaknesses, that we so easily doubt him. So we consider this series of rhetorical questions that point to God’s sovereignty and power; so that we can be fully confident that he does keep his promises, to save and ultimately to take us to be with him for ever.
