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.
Quentin Bernard on “Who condemns you” from John 8:1–11 (Montreal)
Qui te condamne? – En tant que pécheurs, nous avons tous la conscience chargée. Dans le passage en question, la femme adultère a la conscience chargée, ayant été prise en flagrant délit, mais également les pharisiens, qui n’ont pas pu la lapider après que Jésus leur a dit : Que celui qui est sans péché lui lance la première pierre. Nous verrons comment Jésus est le seul qui puisse nous libérer complètement des accusations qui pèsent contre nous grâce à son pardon.
Who condemns you? – As sinners, we all have a guilty conscience. In this portion of the gospel, we see that the adulterous woman, caught in the act of adultery, has a guilty conscience, but so do the pharisees, who could not stone her after Jesus had told them: If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her. We will see today how Jesus is the only one who can completely free us from the accusations against us thanks to his forgiveness.
Trevor Peacock on “God’s Design for His Church” from 1 Timothy 3:1–16 (Calgary)
God gives us a model to follow for church structure. This week we will see that God has given us this structure to preserve the truth, to promote godliness and to proclaim Christ.
George Sinclair on “Praying In the Belly of the Beast” from Jonah 1:17–2:10 (Ottawa)
- Because the Lord is God, there is no other god, hence there is no other, when it comes to people.
- Death swallowed Jonah, and the Lord had death spit Jonah out alive.
- Death swallowed Jonah, and the Lord had death spit Jonah out alive. Death swallowed Jesus, and the Lord spit death out dead.
- In Religion and spirituality, vows and sacrifices lead to “salvation.” With the Gospel, salvation leads to vows and sacrifices..
- Grace leads to faith and obedience. So your faith and obedience flow out of grace.
