The Private Life of the Believer (24 min)

Making the Best Use of Your Life (16 min)

Andrew Ussher preaches “making the best use of your time and life” from Eph 5:1 and 1 Cor 14:12. As we face choices and options in life, the standard should not be “I could be doing worse things with my time” but “What is the best use of my time”. Are we striving for excellence in the Christian life, or just frittering away our days with trivia and inconsequential pursuits? A challenging message (Message preached at the Vancouver Thanksgiving Conference…

A God Who Is Able (28 min)

Faced with being thrown alive into a “burning fiery furnace”, the three Hebrews in Daniel Ch 3 told King Nebuchadnezzar that “God is able to deliver us”. What kind of faith is it that believes in a “God who is able” even in such extreme circumstances? Andrew Ussher passes on an encouraging word to remind us that in every difficult, trying and worrying situation in which we find ourselves, God is always able. Readings: Dan 3:8-18, Heb 11:17-19, 2 Tim…

Fear Not (31 min)

Reading: Isaiah 43.1-5 (Message given in Sussex Gospel Hall conference, New Brunswick, Canada, 2019)

“I Tried to Solve the Puzzle of Salvation” (25 min)

Born in Trinidad, West Indies, Andrew Ussher grew up as a child of missionary parents, familiar with the gospel message. During a year’s furlough in Northern Ireland, Mr & Mrs Ussher took young Andrew to gospel meetings. In one of them Andrew heard about the final judgment from Revelation Ch 21 and for the first time in his life realised he was sinner who deserved God’s judgment – but the impression made didn’t last. The following year (1973) Andrew moved…

Carefree, Careful and Caring Christianity (27 min)

Andrew Ussher brings guidance and strength from the Word of God to anxious worried hearts in an encouraging word of ministry on carefree, careful and caring Christianity.

Guidelines for Godliness – Part 4 (56 min)

Andrew Ussher preaches on “godliness demonstrated in a fruitful Christian life” under 3 headings: desiring fruit, defining fruit and developing fruit. God is looking for fruit in our lives, but this should not be defined in terms of mere activity. It is primarily an issue of character development as Christ is formed in each believer and the fruits of the Spirit are manifested – and not by human efforts, but by divine working (Message preached 15th Mar 2015)

Guidelines for Godliness – Part 2 (50 min)

Andrew Ussher preaches on “godliness developed in the lives of believers”. He outlines his remarks under 3 headings: the pursuit, promise and practice of godliness. Godliness isn’t automatic! While believers must flee from the manifestations of the flesh, they must actively pursue godliness (1 Tim 6:11). Christians are encouraged to see that godliness is not only of value in the life which is to come, but also in “the life that now is” (1 Tim 4:8) (Message preached 14th Mar…

Guidelines for Godliness – Part 3 (56 min)

Andrew Ussher preaches on “godliness in womanhood”. While men and women are equal in essence and equal in spiritual standing as justified before God, in the order of headship God has outlined different roles for male and female. Though not given a public role in the local assembly, Andrew shows from 1 Tim 5:9-10 & 14 that “women professing godliness” have a vital and significant role to play, a role esteemed and valued by the Lord (Message preached 14th Mar…

Guidelines for Godliness – Part 1 (56 min)

Andrew Ussher introduces the subject of godliness, which he defines as “the character of God demonstrated in living human experience”. Taking up 1 Tim 3:16 he shows how the character of God was revealed in the person and life of Christ as it had never been seen before, hence “the mystery of godliness”. He closes with a look at some of the “fruits of the Spirit” in the Lord’s life – My joy, My peace, My love (Message preached 13th…

Love In Marriage (24 min)

PART 6 – Andrew Ussher expounds what “marital love” really looks like in the Bible – not some mere sentimental feeling or emotion, but a commitment, in the words of 1 Cor 13:7, to “bear all things”, “believe all things”, “hope all things” and “endure all things”. This message will really challenge you to think about “love” on a different level to the culture around us – Readings: Gal 2:20, 1 Cor 13:3 and 7 (Message preached 24th Feb 2013)
