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.
Rob Godard on “Identity Crisis Solved” from Romans 6:3–14 (Surrey)
As we grow older we find that there are things we love to do but are no longer able. In these moments we find ourselves in a time of identity crisis and how we see ourselves actually makes a large difference in terms of how we live our lives. Pastor Rob’s message for us is that not only would we be able to know and say that we are in Christ but that we would understand it well enough to live in light of it – this life of faith in Jesus. Romans is moving forward in describing the power of the gospel and showing that it not only saves those who don’t deserve it, by grace through faith, but also that this fundamentally changes who we are, thus how we should see ourselves, and ultimately how we live. All the messages in this series can be found here. CBC also live streams all services from 10:30am PST on CBC LIVE
Clint Humfrey on “Jesus Speaks Forgiveness” from Luke 23:34 (Calgary)
When Jesus was near death he prayed for the forgiveness of sinners. Is there any greater need in our lost world today than the forgiveness of sin and guilt?
- Who Me? The Glut of Guilt
- For Me? The Aim of Asking
- Pardon Me? The Pardon Pleaded
Trevor Peacock on “The Right Place” from Ecclesiastes 8:1–17 (Calgary)
The Scriptures teach us a lot about how we are to relate to the government and those who have authority over us. This week we will see that the key to it all is understanding our proper place. May we be faithful to pray for those who govern over us.
