The Word across Canada (January 31, 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 Ephesians 1:3–6 (Toronto)

Paul Martin began our series “Gospel Power – Gospel Living: Truths from Ephesians” by preaching from Ephesians 1:3-6. Nothing strengthens our confidence in evangelism like considering the evangel – the Gospel. In his letter to the Christians in Ephesus, Paul starts out with a long sentence of praise to the Tri-une God for all He has done in saving His people. It is a remarkable sentence intended to lift our hearts in praise, wonder and adoration. That 202 word string breaks down thematically into three movements highlighting each member of the Trinity and the particular emphasis of their work in saving us. Reading Ephesians 1:3-6 ought to lead us all to worship God the Father “to the praise of His glorious grace!”

Here is the sermon.

Josh Tong on Luke 12:1–12 “Battling Hypocrisy” (King City)

Men implicated in the #MeToo movement have been accused of many things, including the allegation that they have been hypocrites – that is, people who say one thing but do another. Hypocrisy is a struggle, not just for movie stars, but for everyone. Join Pastor Josh as he looks at what Luke 12 teaches us about the root of hypocrisy and its remedy.

George Sinclair on John 1:18–51 (Ottawa)

If God asked you for advice, how would you recommend He introduce Himself? How do people in Canada and around the world tend to think of God? Can human beings extrapolate from their experience to get a good idea about God? This week we look at John 1:18-51. In it we see how God chooses to have His Son introduced. In the introduction, we also see why human beings cannot extrapolate from their experiences to God. We need God to redeem and reveal.

Here’s the link to George’s sermon.

Dr. Shannon Hurley (President & Founder Sufficiency of Scriptures Ministries) on Luke 10:3810:42 (Calgary)

In the beginning of a new year, believers should be challenged not to abandon the best for the good. They should see God as necessary.

Rob Godard on Acts 1:611 (Surrey)

There have been a lot of predictions that will not come true, and are even comical as we remember some of them…. But the promise of the return of Jesus is not only true, and absolute in the plan of God, it should change our lives! It is not comical how the church treats the promises of Jesus and His Word’s clear call for us to live in light of His return!
