Romans 6 – True Freedom – Praise and Preaching from St Peters

“What is the end of all church-order, assemblies, and worship?  What is a church?  Is it not a company of sinners gathered together, according to God’s appointment, to give glory and praise to him for pardoning grace, for the forgiveness of sins, and to yield to him that obedience which he requires from us on the account of his having so dealt with us?  This … Continue reading Romans 6 – True Freedom – Praise and Preaching from St Peters

Portrush, Romans 5, Ephesians 3 – The Advance of the Gospel and the Church

I am currently in Portrush Northern Ireland to speak at a unique occasion – eight churches have got together and are cancelling their individual services and all meeting together this morning in the University of Coleraine.  It’s encouraging that they are willing to do this (Presbyterians taking risks is unusual!) although it’s kind of a shame that its just the Presbyterians!   The weather is atrocious … Continue reading Portrush, Romans 5, Ephesians 3 – The Advance of the Gospel and the Church

Praise, Reading, Prayer and Preaching (Romans and Gospel of John) from St Peters – 21st January

After our experiment last year recording the whole service we have decided to do that permanently.  Everything is recorded except the pastoral prayer and the missions prayer (for reasons of confidentiality).   I prefer to listen to the whole service – the recording is excellent and its great to join in the praise (led by John Cooper).   If you wish to get the sermons only you … Continue reading Praise, Reading, Prayer and Preaching (Romans and Gospel of John) from St Peters – 21st January

Romans ch 4 – The Faith of Abraham – Our Example

Last Sunday I preached through Romans 4 in two parts – it is a chapter of Romans which is quite often neglected but is crucial because it shows how Abraham is the example of salvation for all of us.   Both sermons are below and can be accessed on the St Peters website as well. Morning: Romans 4:1-8 – Abraham – Signed, Sealed and Delivered Isn’t … Continue reading Romans ch 4 – The Faith of Abraham – Our Example

Romans, Proverbs and Psalm 53 – The Unrighteousness that Proves God and the Speech that Transforms

It was a real joy to be back preaching in St Peters last Sunday.  It was thrilling to see the church packed, to join in the praise and to be able to share the greatest thing in the world – the Word of God.  The following is my introduction to the morning sermon – You will please forgive me for a personal word.   I am … Continue reading Romans, Proverbs and Psalm 53 – The Unrighteousness that Proves God and the Speech that Transforms

The Blind See, The Lords People are Fed, the King Returns – Sermons and Praise from St Peters from 24th Sept

The Bible is a rich feast for the Lord’s people – but normally Christians don’t eat alone – we eat together with a meal prepared by a trained chef – at least that is one way to look at preaching.  Last Sunday we feasted in God’s house.  Sinclair’s exposition of the story of the healing of the man born blind (John 9) contrasted the love … Continue reading The Blind See, The Lords People are Fed, the King Returns – Sermons and Praise from St Peters from 24th Sept

John 8 – The Light of the World, Psalm 121, O For a Closer Walk with God…

Last Sunday I was not able to go to St Peters.  I was thankful to be at home after surgery but I missed my spiritual home!  Thats why the internet is such a gift – I have been able to listen to the sermon and also to share in some of the praise.  Not the same as being there – but a good taste anyway! … Continue reading John 8 – The Light of the World, Psalm 121, O For a Closer Walk with God…
