The Word across Canada (April 12, 2018)

Every week we want to bring to your attention expository, Gospel-centred sermons from pastors across Canada. We hope that you become familiar with some of the faithful ministers of the word in our nation. We also hope that you will be edified on your daily commute or whenever you listen to these messages. We lastly hope that you learn about the churches where these pastors minister, so that you can easily find Gospel-centered, expository churches in your region.

Paul Martin on Acts (Toronto)

We’re All Dead If He’s Not Alive. Paul Martin preached from the book of Acts, highlighting how crucial the resurrection of Jesus Christ is to our faith.

Here is the sermon.

Rod Godard on John 19:28-20:18: “Famous Last Words (It is Finished)” (Surrey)

IT IS FINISHED.  Spurgeon stated that this one word, “would need all the other words that were ever spoken, or can be spoken to explain it…it is altogether immeasurable. It is high; I cannot attain it.  It is deep; I cannot fathom it.

When Jesus spoke these precious words, they announced to all that His task was done! The great exchange had occurred…2 Corinthians 5:21. The price was paid in full…Hebrews 9:22. This is so rich because now, for those who believe, there is freedom from condemnation (Romans 8:1); and passion for living (2 Corinthians 5:14). IT IS FINISHED.

This Easter Sunday reality should change everything else about us! May our God help us to experience the richness of what Jesus finished in a way that will cause us to rejoice and reveal Him and His Gospel to others through our lives and lips.The audio and video for this Easter Sunday message can be found here.

Bradley Morrice on Luke 24 : 13-43 (Montreal)

La résurrection de Jésus est fondamentale dans le mouvement chrétien que Jésus a commencé lors de sa venue sur terre, mais qu’est-ce que ça veut dire réellement ? Quel est le véritable sens de la résurrection de Jésus ? C’est un événement historique, révélateur, et surtout plein d’espoir. Ce sont les 3 aspects qui seront explorés ce matin.


The resurrection of Jesus is fundamental in the Christian movement that Jesus began when he came to earth, but what does it really mean? What is the true meaning of Jesus’ resurrection? It is a historical event, revealing, and above all full of hope. These are the 3 aspects that will be explored this morning.

George Sinclair on John 6:41-71 (Ottawa)

Part of the reason that we say that Jesus’ death can count for many is because He is both fully God and fully man. But how can someone with a birth certificate and an address claim to have come down from Heaven? How does that make sense? Remarkably, people who heard Jesus’ claim ask Him that very question. Yet for many of us when we read Jesus’ answer to the question we are disappointed. Let’s look more carefully at John 6:41-71. Our disappointment tells us much about our the true state of our hearts. As Jesus addresses our hearts, it is also made clear how it is that the resurrection of Jesus changes everything.

Here’s the link to George’s sermon.

Paul Carter on John 19:30: “It Is Finished” (Orillia)

It is finished. Those might be the most beloved three words in all of Scripture. But what do they mean precisely? What is finished? What did Christ accomplish on the cross? That is the question addressed by Pastor Paul Carter in this special Good Friday message; you can find it here.
