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.
Jeff Eastwood on “Seasons” from Ecclesiastes 3:1–8 (Charlottetown, PE)
As we grapple with everything that life brings our way, it can be tempting to see the whole process as arbitrary, scary, and often weighted against us. Whether we want to admit it or not, we are small, weak, and fragile, and have no control over which direction life takes us. How blessed is it, then, to know that God has everything under His control, and that life is a predetermined, purposeful plan of our graciously sovereign Father, who is working all things according to the counsel of His own will? Follow along as Pastor Jeff preaches on “Seasons” from Ecclesiastes 3:1–8.
Paul Carter on “A Glimpse Behind the Curtain” from Daniel 10 (Orillia)
This past week we “happened” to be scheduled for a sermon on Daniel 10. In truth, I’m not sure I could have selected a more appropriate text if given advance notice of this particular crisis. Daniel 10 is about “the unseen battle” and the overlapping realities between the spiritual and physical dimensions. Behind every delay and difficulty down here there is a battle being fought in the heavenlies. Normally, that would be interesting, but this week, it felt like a message sent by God.
Winston Bosch on “the Exodus of Jesus” from Luke 9:30–31 (Ottawa)
Covid-19 turns up the volume on our fear and anxiety and worry. Luke 9 helps us turn down that noise, and tune our lives to the joyful sounds of the melody of salvation.
George Sinclair on”Too Strong to Fail?” from Judges 16 (Ottawa)
We often see nations, organizations and individuals who believe they are too powerful to lose or collapse. The story of Samson’s final days is a profound meditation on this. The same story has wise insights about a question which is connected to the problem of evil—a profound question that few ask, but the Bible makes clear.
Stephen Bray on “The Saviour Who Forgives and Saves!” from Luke 23:26–43 (St. John’s)
