The Word across Canada (February 01, 2019)

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.

Clint Humfrey on “The Parable of the Potter; or What is Unconditional Election?” from Jeremiah 18 (Calgary)

In our day, people talk a lot about their rights and freedoms. Have you ever stopped to think about the rights and freedoms of God? In this message, we will explore the freedom and rights of our good and glorious God. To do this, we will make a visit to the Potter’s house in Jeremiah 18.

  1. The Potter’s House
  2. Vessels of Mercy
  3. Election and Evangelism

Here is the sermon.

George Sinclair on John 13 (Ottawa)

Shame can become deeply entrenched in a person’s life. It can become a sense that there is something deeply wrong, unfixable and rotten about you. What does the Bible say about shame? How does our culture suggest dealing with shame? Let’s look at how Jesus describes the Gospel and it’s connection to shame by looking at John 13.

Christian Frappier on Courage et Passion (Montreal)

Courage et passion : Bonhoeffer, courage face à l’intégrité de l’Évangile – Durant l’Allemagne nazie, le pasteur Bonhoeffer s’engage dans la résistance. En étudiant son histoire, nous verrons que la vérité a un coût, qu’en tant que chrétien nous devons éviter de séparer notre vie en deux parties (séculaire et sacrée) et que nous pouvons être libérés de la crainte de la mort.

Courage and Passion: Bonhoeffer, courage about the integrity of the Gospel – During Nazi Germany, pastor Bonhoeffer resists the Nazi movement. By looking at his life, we will see that the truth is costly, that as Christians we must not separate our lives in two parts (secular and sacred) and that we can be delivered from the fear of death.

Here is the message.

Bradley Morrice on Psalm 42 (Montreal)

Courage et passion : La dépression de William Cowper – À travers l’histoire de William Cowper, nous nous demanderons ce que nous pouvons faire quand Dieu semble absent, comment trouver le courage nécessaire de continuer. Nous découvrirons trois aspects du courage nécessaire pour sortir de la dépression: le coeur (sentiments), les mains (action) et la tête (réflexions).

Courage and passion : William Cowper and Depression – Through the life of William Cowper, we will ask ourselves what we can do when God seems absent, how to find the courage we need to continue. We will discover three aspects of the courage we need to get rid of depression: the heart (feelings), the hands (actions) and the head (reflexions).

Here is the sermon.

Paul Martin on “Walk Your Talk in Your Trials” from James 1:2-11 (Toronto)

Trials come in every shape and style. Whether it is a slow commute or an aggressive cancer, James looks us in the eye and commands us to reckon it joy. That would be hard news if he didn’t include the promise of a generous God eager to give us the wisdom we need to have that joy should we just ask. Rather than run to wealth or plead our poverty, every Christian can rejoice that their faith is being strengthened as God brings along some new resistance to display to them and the world that they live for Another.

Here is the sermon.

Josh Tong on Psalm 139 (King City)

Here is as a meditation on the sanctity of human life from Psalm 139, and how the truths contained within that Psalm change the way we think about and respond to abortion, regardless of the unborn child’s stage of development.

Here is the sermon.
