The True Source of Power

The True Source of Power
1 Corinthians 1.10 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

For the Gospel to be credible (so the Corinthians taught), we need conspicuous personalities or preachers. Here Paul proclaims the true source of spiritual power, the preaching of the cross of Christ, and why it is foolishness to the perishing and power to the saved.

True Greatness with God

Christian Certainty

Christian Certainty
Hebrews 4.11-16 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Should believers suffer many doubts and fears? Here is a sure footing for assurance - firstly what the Word does for us: its explanations and convicting power. Secondly, the approachability of Christ and His constant provision of needed help. Doubts cannot persist when God speaks and answers.

The Decisive Call of God

The Decisive Call of God
Matthew 9.9 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Matthew's account of his conversion could not be shorter. So little is said, but much is implied. Here are the events that led to the moment that the Gospel writer yielded his life to Christ, and how two words made all the difference.

Sacred or Profane Worship?
To be profane is to treat sacred and biblical things with irreverence or disregard, so as to violate and pollute them. Is the modern entertainment scene profane? Most definitely, because it is the most powerful and determined anti-God, anti-moral, anti-authority culture for centuries.

True Repentance for Believers
What are the Old Testament sacrifices about? Are they similar to the cultic practices of the pagans? No, they are not. They speak volumes, being performed in the light of a coming Saviour. That, at least, is how it should have been for sincere and thoughtful Israelites.

Ye are the Salt of the Earth -  Keeping the church separate from the world
There must always be a sharp distinction between the church and the world. If a church is not separate from the world, it becomes like salt that has lost its savour, and is fit only to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men.

The Charismatic Illusion
Now with more answers to questions asked by people investigating the arguments, this veteran book contends for the biblical position on the gifts that prevailed for nearly 2,000 years before the charismatic movement came along.

Here is the dynamic teaching of the Spirit that sustained true churches and believers through dark and bright years of history, through the Reformation, through the Puritan era, through the time of great Confessions of Faith, through repeated awakenings and revivals, and through the worldwide growth of the modern missionary movement.

Sacrifice
How much we need the challenging call of Howard Guinness’s Sacrifice! Only this level of commitment will take us through life’s journey used by God, and rejoicing in his power and love.

May we do so also, to the glory of God.
