The Word across Canada (November 07, 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.

Philippe Mathieu on Hebrews 9:11-28 (Montreal)

Le sang de Jésus – Le sang de Jésus est meilleur que le sang des animaux sacrifiés, car il offre une meilleure purification, et ce pour 3 raisons : il est offert par la meilleure personne, à la meilleure place et avec la meilleure puissance. // The blood of Jesus – The blood of Jesus is better than the blood of sacrificed animals because it offers a better purification for three reasons: it is offered by the best person, in the best place and with the best power.

Here is the sermon.

Clint Humfrey on Philippians 4:10-13 (Calgary)

What is the spiritually secret to contentment? Paul tells the Philippians that contentment is only found in Christ and the strength he supplies.

Rob Godard on “Gospel Living – Aim 2 Please Him” from Romans 1-3 (Surrey)

This message shows how to please God effectively as an overflow of Gospel centered living. The Gospel in this case is not only essential in terms of our motivation but also our joy. The Gospel motivates us for we now see true love and experience God’s love.

It is also our joy, as so often in pursuing a life that pleases God, guilt and shame at how far we fall short can overwhelm us…so the Gospel lays the foundation as well as gives the motivation for a life that pleases God.

Only as we move forward in grace can we continue to move forward in joy. The closer we get to Him, the more we will realize how much we need His grace, and so we must live in that grace as we go hard after holiness!

The messages in this series can be found here.  CBC also live streams all services from 10:30am PST on CBC LIVE.

Chris Powell on “A Christian Psychology: Preaching the Gospel to Yourself” from Psalm 103 (Toronto)

As Christians, it’s easy to remember our failures and faults, but it’s hard to remember that we are children of the living God. Psalm 103 is about preaching the truth of the gospel to our own heart. We have great hope because God’s love is a faithful, loyal, unwavering, neverending, steadfast love. Bless the LORD, O my soul!

Here is the sermon.

George Sinclair on Esther 4 (Ottawa)

Do people live under the judgment of God? Is it wise to talk about Canadians being under His judgement in the main worship service on Sunday? Can a reminder – a challenge – that we live under God’s judgment be used by God to bring us to faith in Jesus? Let’s look at Esther 4 together.

Here’s the link to George’s sermon.
