The Word across Canada (May 03, 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.

Jeff Jones on Luke 3:23-38 (Calgary)

How does a list of names from thousands of years ago provide any comfort, or encouragement, or practical lessons for wise living? What on earth do biblical genealogies have to do with you and your life? Though many modern Christians struggle to see the value of biblical genealogies, Luke, in his Gospel, presents Jesus’ lineage as something that’s not only vital to know, but that will change the lives of his readers forever.

Here are the sermon’s main points, God’s Son, Born of a Woman:

  1. Why Luke’s Genealogy?
  2. Jesus, Son of God
  3. Jesu, Born of a Woman

Here is the sermon link.

George Sinclair on John 8:12-30 (Ottawa)

Jesus warned of Hell, so if I never warn of Hell, I am not being Christ like. Let’s look at John 8:12-30, where Jesus both warns of Hell and sets forth the wonder and beauty of the Gospel.

Here’s the link to George’s sermon.

Paul Carter on Mark 12:18-27: “You Know Neither The Scriptures Nor The Power Of God” (Orillia)

According to Jesus in this passage, if you aren’t handling the Bible properly you will misunderstand God and develop an incoherent system of religion. Looking around at the current of the evangelical church in North America it would be very hard to dispute that claim. To hear this passage read, explained and applied to our current situation see here.

Dan Thomson on 1 Samuel 26:1-28:2 (Charlottetown)

Between 1 Samuel 26 and 1 Samuel 27, there’s a huge change for David. He successfully evades Saul again, yet somehow has a breakdown and feels that he’s in a hopeless situation. To make matters worse, he chooses to go to the enemy to get away from it all! David wins favour with the king of the Philistines and continues to live and act as though he’s an ally with them. The king doesn’t realize he’s being deceived. David may have been too good at earning his trust however: he’s now the king’s bodyguard; he may have over-played his hand.
