1 John 4.1-6

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 11 August 2019
Distinguishing Truth from Error.

Luke 11.9

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 11 August 2019
Christ's Direction For Finding Him.

The Saviour's call to 'ask-seek-knock' conveys the whole message of salvation in a single illustration. Here is how to ask (with the mind) to seek (with the heart) and to knock (with the will) on the door that opens to Christ and new life.

Judges 10-12.

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 17 July 2019
Keeping a Vow to God.

Jephthah, a rare godly man in apostate Israel, is called from exile to defend the typical church. He makes a pious but rash vow and honours it with an obedience matched by his daughter. Not a human sacrifice, of course, but a challenge of commitment.

Judges 8-9

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 10 July 2019
Resisting the Flesh.

The non-cooperation of Succoth, the snare of Gideon's ephod, the fable of Jotham, and the reign of Abimelech the bramble provide lessons on the antagonism of the flesh to spiritual progress, and its longing for human rule, rather than that of the Lord.

John 1.17

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters preached on 30 June 2019
The Two Pillars of Christianity.

The moral law of God is an act of great kindness, intended to give order to the human race and to show how far short of God's standards we fall, and how greatly we need free forgiveness. Here is how we receive grace from God.
