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 Martin on “Walk Your Talk With Your Money” from James 5:1–6 (Toronto)
Being rich can do catastrophic harm to your spiritual life. Some people can handle lots of money, most cannot. And it is this warning that frames James discussion of riches. Whether someone is a Christian or not, they must be terribly cautious if they gain wealth. It will profit a person nothing eternally if they amass a fortune on earth that only testifies against them forever in hell.
Rob Godard on “A Short Time To Impact Eternity” from Psalm 90 (Surrey)
This Psalm helps us think and feel right about life in the midst of brokenness and, an honest look at what we have accomplished and who we are. As Moses has experienced life, and wants to express these experiences in song, he starts with the eternal nature of who God is and runs to God. Here is someone who was a friend of God, so He goes back to where he started, and under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit he has three prayer requests:
• Teach us to number our days
• Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love
• Establish the work of your hands
