Sermon Text for November 2nd – Ephesians 1:1-4

We’re going to be taking a bit of a break from the gospel of John and spend the next five weeks studying the theme of grace. Here’s the text for Sunday’s sermon:

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,

To the saints who are in Ephesus, and are faithful in Christ Jesus:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.

Sermon Text for October 12th – Isaiah 6:1-8

Brian MacSwan preached the first of two messages out of Isaiah 6 this Sunday. Here’s his text:

1 In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;

the whole earth is full of his glory!”

And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”

Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”

Sermon Audio for October 5th – God’s Heart for Missions

Just got back this weekend from my trip to Africa and I’ve got a lot to catch up on. First of all, I’m going to start posting the audio from the sermons that were preached in my absence. The first is by Grady Nace, a member of our congregation who is in the final stages of fund-raising before he and his family head over to Mozambique on assignment with Mission Aviation Fellowship.
