2 Aug 2020
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The harrowing list of pains, pressures and trials, endured by Paul as a continuous authentication of his ministry as an apostle, starts at Damascus, with his ignominious escape. Here is the first of the purposes of Paul's many sufferings and how it applies to us. 

The Life of Paul 2 Corinthians 11.5
26 Jul 2020
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Paul speaks reluctantly of his life and work to defend his standing, so attacked by heretics.  Here is his level of commitment, contention for the truth, and faithfulness through labours, privation and persecutions.  Is our commitment diluted by the affluence, comfort and self-care of our age?

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The Bible has many biographies of people who came to know God, and of others who failed to do so. The story of Micah remarkably portrays dead or false faith, and how it differs from a sincere approach to God, and authentic conversion.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

The magnificent prophecy of the Gospel church describes Christ's benefits and commission to his N.T. people giving us, 1) a new territory; 2) a new relationship; 3) a new composition, and 4) a new victory. Here are the promises of God for our preservation and power.

 

Defending the Church 2 Corinthians 10.7
19 Jul 2020
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

How superficial the Corinthians were in letting false teachers get in!  They only had to claim to be Christian preachers and no questions were asked.  When good people lay aside discernment the result is Satanic conquest.  A similar war faces sound churches today.

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The mystery of three seemingly keen disciples who were declined by the Lord.  God does not always receive those who appear to seek Him, and here Christ shows why.  Here also is the right way to desire salvation and what sincere seekers experience.

Calvary in Isaiah Isaiah 52-53
15 Jul 2020
Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

In language of soaring beauty and with characteristic detail and precision the prophet presents first, Christ's exalted qualifications; secondly, His contrasting humiliation for the work of redemption; thirdly, His rejection; and fourthly, His unique and harrowing atonement, and finally our utter dependence upon Him.

The Battle for the Mind 2 Corinthians 10.1-12
12 Jul 2020
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Beginning with Paul's apostolic authority, this passage presents his reliance on God's power rather than human schemes, showing how strongholds of human thought void of biblical foundation may be thrown down by the truth.  Here also is the need for true submission to Christ.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Nearly 700 years before the coming of Christ, the prophet details the principal features of the church to come: a people preserved; a people born in new revelation; a people who listen to God, and a people who live to proclaim the Gospel of Christ.

Gifts: Sowing and Reaping 2 Corinthians 8.13
5 Jul 2020
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The apostle's instructions for giving have often been found surprising, being chiefly spiritual matters.  The priority of the Gospel is emphasised even in relief offerings, and a precious list of aims and attitudes is given, bringing a reward of spiritual not fleshly enrichment.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Having already said so much about Christ and His future church, Isaiah now shows the astonishing features of the coming Gentile conversion, the unreasonableness of unbelief to be overpowered, and the infallibility of Christ especially in the upholding of His redeemed people.

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Six graces are listed: faith (conviction), witness, knowledge, diligence (earnestness), love for the cause and stewardship.  Then follow seven aspects of such graces that challenge the heart and show the spirit in which they are exercised.  This passage uniquely defines dedicated spiritual living.

28 Jun 2020
Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Christ's parable of the lost sheep tracks the giving of the parable to record crowds including many hostile leaders.  He emphasises that God's mercy is to individuals, showing the divine motive, our lost condition, the costly recovery of the lost, and the Saviour's ultimate victory.
