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.
Steve Bray on John 8:12–20 (Calgary)
If you will follow, pray to, listen and obey Jesus…your life will be forever changed into His image and you’ll never regret it! Following Jesus, submitting to Jesus, trusting Jesus is the greatest decision of life change you’ll ever make
Here is the sermon.
Rob Godard on “Absolute Trust: In Suffering” from Romans 5:3-4 (Surrey)
If God is truly Sovereign (and He is), why do bad things happen to good people? God’s Word never gives us the full detailed answer that we often want, but it does give us a helpful structure that shapes our worldview and can give us the strength to trust Him in all of life and all suffering. As we study Romans, one of the beautiful life changing things we will see on display is that suffering is used by God to accomplish His will for His glory. Romans 5 is a great place for us to begin to understand this. God use use the study of this chapter to deepen our understanding and experience of His love so that we can live all of life in absolute trust, and when we suffer, we can rejoice!
Jeff Eastwood on 2 Samuel 21:15-22 (Charlottetown)
2 Samuel 21-24 is an epilogue to the book, recounting different aspects of David’s life. In the second part of chapter 21 we are reminded of some of the exploits of David’s mighty men as a great testament to the greatness and goodness of God. Follow along as Pastor Jeff preaches on “Worship and Perspective” from 2 Samuel 21:15-22, sharing how God always preserves His plan and keeps His promises, while using and honouring His servants along the way.

Paul Carter on 1 Peter 3:1-7 “Wives Be Subject To Your Husbands” (Orillia)
It would be difficult to think of a more offensive teaching than this to the contemporary reader of the Bible. Why would Peter say such a thing? Does it still apply today? What are we to make of this most unusual teaching? In this sermon from the “Faith Under Fire” series Pastor Paul explores these and other difficult questions.
