1 Thessalonians 2.3

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 15 October 2017
Three Tests of Soundness.

Paul entered Thessalonica outwardly lowly but inwardly laden with treasures of grace and power. He lays out three tests of soundness: matter (the message), motives, and manner (of proclamation), and here we apply them to Jews, pagans, modern atheism, and present-day Christian phonies also.

1 Thessalonians 1.9

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 8 October 2017
Transformation Process.

Thessalonica saw lives radically changed. The new objective of believers was the gathering of souls out of a doomed world for Christ's return, not world restoration (an old heresy returning today). Here also is their realisation of God's hatred of sin. Is ours fading?

Psalm 23.1

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 8 October 2017
King David's View of Life.

The 23rd psalm is the most famous of David's poetic compositions, but people often do not realise it is the king's brilliant summary of his view of life - of how he saw himself before his Creator - and how he came to find and know Him.

Leviticus 8 - 10.

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 4 October 2017
Legitimate Worship.

Numerous times we are told that worship and priesthood were prescribed in detail by God, yet immediately and fatally Nadab and Abihu innovated. Why? Here are common answers, but Scripture mentions only that their novelty was not commanded by God, and here are lessons for churches today.

1 Thessalonians 1.4

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 1 October 2017
Paul's Eleven Signs of the Elect.

Paul's letter to a young church begins with eleven signs that people are truly elect and saved. Paul can rejoice for the Thessalonians, but could he for us? And are the signs reflected in professing Christian congregations today? Have we reason to rejoice?

John 6.68

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 1 October 2017
The Words of Eternal Life.

We track the events of an astounding chapter that sees many disciples turn away from Christ.  It was the opposite of what usually happened.  They found Christ's statements about eternal life unpalatable.  Why?  The answer moves us to take seriously the needs of the soul.

Leviticus 3 - 4.

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 27 September 2017
Searching the Heart.

Lessons from the offerings for our devotional lives today, first for peace (thankfulness), second for sins of 'ignorance' (light untroubled sinning), third for guilt by association, fourth for 'trespass' (sins against God). How can we repent without knowing these categories of offence?

Leviticus 1.1

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 20 September 2017
True Repentance for Believers.

The burnt offerings are past and over, eclipsed by Calvary, but by placing ourselves in the midst of the scene we may feel the impact of the symbolism and the nature of guilt. Here we learn much about how to think in times of repentance.

2 Timothy 1.6

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 13 September 2017
The Rekindling of our Gifts.

Like daily prayer, Scripture reading, mortification of sin and good works, the stirring up and enlivening of God-given abilities is a regular duty not only for ministers such as Timothy, but for all believers. Here is the method of Paul.

2 Timothy 1.7

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 10 September 2017
Is The Soul Alive or Dead?.

Paul here names three elements of conversion to Christ: 'Power', describing the great change of life; 'love', describing all that Christ has done to secure pardon for us; and 'a sound mind', describing the clear view of God, of life and of eternity that conversion brings.
