This is another video in a series by Ravi Zacharias Ministries, titled “Suffering and Jesus”. Their YouTube notes say that “The Christian faith requires you to take up your cross and follow Jesus and can sometimes mean losing friends, dividing families, or life as you know it to walk in the path of God. Nabeel Qureshi shares how Jesus and his lived example provides a unique answer to our suffering.”
Today I came across a most promising sermon series on the Thirty-Nine Articles, done by St. Andrew’s Church of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, in 2012. They set out to preach an entire series covering the Articles, and here is the first one in the series, titled “The Trinity: God is Love.” This one is by the Rev. Rob Sturdy and is an excellent beginning to these messages. This particular video cannot be embedded, but you can find it here.
From St. Helen’s Bishopsgate in the United Kingdom, here is another episode of Preaching Matters. Their website says this about “Preaching 2 Timothy” with Andy Gemmill:
In what ways do people often misread 2 Timothy? Is the letter really about an experienced Christian worker handing over to a novice? What is the main focus of 2 Timothy? How can we understand the historical situation and context into which 2 Timothy is written? How is it possible for someone like Timothy to be drifting from Paul’s pattern of ministry? Is Paul addressing the same issues in 1 Timothy as he does in 2 Timothy? What key applications can we draw from 2 Timothy? Why should we teach 2 Timothy in our congregation when it seems to be addressed to a pastor?
Andy Gemmill, our guest at Preaching Matters this month, answers these questions for us.
From Dr. Richard Trucks of Third Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, here is a message based on James 4:13-17, titled “A Professing Christian or Committed Christian?” In this message, he looks at the difference between these two categories of people – and it is a crucial difference.
In this short video from Crossway, R. Kent Hughes makes an important point for preachers. And perhaps, by implication, a reminder for us hearers as well: shouldn’t we pay as much attention to the expositions of the Scriptures as we do to the stories? (Hat tip: Anglican Church League)
Here is another presentation by Dr. Hugh Ross, noted astrophysicist and apologist for the Christian faith. This one is in video format and is on “God and Big Bang Science”, with the message that this theory actually supports the Bible, thus Christians need not be afraid of it. See what you think.
Here is the fourth in a series of audio sermons on the First Epistle of John by Phillip Jensen; the name of the series is “1 John: Living Confidently in a Dangerous World”. This message is titled The Love of the World and is based on 1 John 2:12-17.
From the Rev. Vaughan Roberts of St. Ebbe’s Church in the United Kingdom, here is a thoughtful audio message based on Revelation 21, titled “God’s New Creation 1”, that you can hear. This is the thirteenth in a series on “I Saw Heaven Open”, on some passages in Revelation, and this is a very good series of messages.
The message can be heard at this link.
