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 Eastwood on Psalm 31 (Charlottetown)
Psalm 31 is both a cry for help and a cry of settled faith. This seeming contradiction is actually a blessed natural pairing, as who better to ask for help from then one you fully trust? Verse 5 is quoted by Christ as the last thing He says before He dies, and this level of trust and faith is what each of His followers is called to. This Christmas, will we trust God this much, especially with all the hurt and pain that is silently experienced at this time of year?

George Sinclair on John 1:1-5 (Ottawa)
Some “thing” or some One has always existed. Some “what” or some Who has no beginning. How does love fit in with this? Canadians think of love as basic and hugely important. How can such an intuition be true? How does, “how we think about beginnings”, relate to how we live today – and have hope for the future? This week George Sinclair will look at these questions as we look at John 1:1-5.

Paul Toews on Romans 8:29 (Calgary)
People may go through Christmas with the general idea that it is a season of peace and goodwill, of love and Joy. It is a season of family and gift giving. Every year you hear people ponder the meaning of Christmas. For the believer, however, there is nothing general or vague about Christmas. For the believer it is staggeringly personal.

Clint Humfrey on Luke 2:8-14 (Calgary)
Many people are looking for a sign, which means that they are lost. Others are lost yet don’t think they need a sign. In the gift of the gospel a sign has been given. The sign is Jesus Christ. The shepherds were told that the baby in a manger was a sign that God had provided a glorious Saviour. And it is only this sign from the manger to the cross that directs and delivers from our lostness.

Rob Godard on Luke 19:1-10 (Surrey)
Christmas Eve is upon us, and this is a very special day for us as a church. A day we focus on the Savior, and this year, ask the question, why did Jesus come?
