The Word across Canada (August 11)

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 Carter on Mark 7:14-23 (Orillia)

Mark 7:19 might be the most explosive verse in the New Testament. “(Thus he declared all foods clean).” That’s a neat way of saying, “Thus he wiped pretty much all of first century Judaism off the table.” That is a huge statement and it took the church the better part two decades to figure out exactly what this means and how it works.

Jeff Eastwood on John 13:1-20 (Charlottetown)

As John’s narrative shifts from the public ministry of Jesus to a more intimate setting with just his twelve (soon to be eleven) disciples, Jesus does something at the beginning of their time together that sets the posture for all future disciples. This week, Pastor Jeff looks at John 13:1-20 and the supreme example Jesus sets for the sacrificial service that ought to characterize all His followers.

Steve Kim on Exodus 9:13–10:29 (Toronto)

Thomas Calamunce on Acts 19:23-41 (Surrey)

Why is it so easy for Christians to think like the world around us? How can we be different from the world in how we store up treasures? What are some ways that we can display our treasuring God above all things?

Thomas’ message has three points: Review your life, Remind yourself of the Gospel, and Repent of Idolatry. To listen to it, click here.
