Signs of a Heavenly People

Signs of a Heavenly People Text: Phil 1:27-28 Last week we saw that Paul uses the language of v27 to remind them of the obligations they had as people who participate in a society, which in this case, is the society of believers whose strongest ties are in heaven. Now the unity of those who are citizens of heaven is going to be repeatedly enforced by Paul over the next…

The Essence of Discipleship

The Essence of Discipleship Text: John 1:35-42 In this passage we have some who were later were to become apostles meeting with the Lord Jesus Christ. This is not the calling to the apostleship, this is the first meeting. Andrew is named and is with someone else. Since those in the latter part of this portion became apostles, it’s likely that John is the unnamed disciple…

The Public Identification of Christ

The Public Identification of Christ Text: John 1:30-34 Often when one says the word ‘prophecy’ they consider it solely in relation to the telling of the future. But, while it can mean that and often does, the primary meaning of the word relates simply to the declaring of truth. It is both foretelling and forth-telling. As we consider John the Baptist, while he was a…

The Christian Motive Text

The Christian Motive Text Text: Philippians 1:22-26 The sovereignty of God is the most comforting doctrine for the child of God. To be able to rest in the knowledge that God knows best and that nothing can or will thwart His purposes either in a general sense, or towards each of His people as individuals. One of the reasons I find it so comforting is because I’m regularly…

The Lamb of God

The Lamb of God Text: John 1:29 One of the things that I was absolutely delighted about when I first arrived here was that the text over the doorway of this church was John 1:29. There are many texts that our churches use for that kind of thing; We preach Christ crucified, justified by his blood, etc. But to me to have a text that calls every saint and sinner to look to…

The Christian Motto Text

The Christian Motto Text Text: Philippians 1:21 One of the great testimonies to the reality of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, is the radical transformation of the followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those of you who know the gospel records will be aware of the sadness that gripped the heart of the disciples and followers of the Lord when the knowledge of Christ’s death…

The Crucifixion of Christ

The Crucifixion of Christ Text: John 19:16-37 An article published this morning reported on the crucifixion re-enactment in the Philippines. “Screaming in pain, Filipino devotees had themselves nailed to wooden crosses to mimic the suffering of Jesus Christ on Good Friday in Asia’s largest Roman Catholic nation. Church leaders have spoken against the annual practice…

The Testimony of the Voice

The Testimony of the Voice Text: John 1:19-28 As we step into the historical section of this gospel, we leave behind one of the most glorious sections of all the Bible. I know I didn’t do it justice, but I trust the Lord has strengthened in your mind the basic themes and truths that are important with regard to to person of the Lord Jesus Christ as the only Saviour of…

Christian Joy

Christian Joy Text: Philippians 1:18-20 Sometimes we can be hopeful of something, but unsure about whether it may happen. That’s perhaps how some of you feel about the prospect of your loved ones coming to know Christ. Hopeful, but not certain. That’s how Paul felt about his release from being a prisoner of Rome. Compare 1:25-26 and 2:23. Even an apostle can’t be certain…
