Sermons from May 2019

Exposition of 2 Timothy Ch 2 (42 min)

Peter Scarsbrook works through 2 Timothy Ch 2 and brings out a list of pictures and portraits from the chapter as follows: a Steward, a Soldier, a Sportsman, a Sower, a Student, Stumblingblocks and a Servant. He brings forth some practical exhortations in relation to the Christian’s warfare; rightly dividing the Word of God dispensationally; not entangling oneself in politics and voting; and the need for labouring in the gospel (Message preached 23rd May 2019)

The Prayers of Hannah (37 min)

PART 3 – Michael Penfold takes a look at the two prayers of Hannah – her supplication in 1 Samuel Ch 1 and her thanksgiving in Ch 2. Her first prayer was heartfelt, intelligent, reverent and selfless, while her second revealed her appreciation of God’s salvation, His attributes, His sovereignty and His purposes. Along the way Michael has a few things to say about the subject of being “authentic” in prayer, and also passes comment on the regrettable revolution in…

Exposition of 2 Timothy Ch 1 (46 min)

John Salisbury expounds 2 Timothy Ch 1. After dividing up and introducing the whole epistle, John builds his remarks on Chapter 1 around three mentions of the word “ashamed”. Neither Timothy (v8), Paul (v12) nor Onesiphorus (v16) are ashamed, and the reasons why are given according to the context. In the closing section of the message a helpful 7-point outline of Onesiphorus is given (Message preached 16th May 2019)

Mr. Baiju Balan’s Testimony of Salvation (43 min)

Raised culturally Hindu, but also occasionally attending church services, Mr Baiju Balan did not hear the gospel until he was 20 years old. Pressured to pray a “prayer for salvation” before he even understood he was lost, Baiju carried on unchanged in his sins. However, a brush with death intervened and, while convalescing, he read the Sermon on the Mount and discovered he was the “chiefest of sinners”. Another tried to get Baiju to put his name in this and…

The Prayers of Abraham and Eliezer (44 min)

PART 2 – Mervvn Hall draws out “principles of prayer” from Gen Chs. 18 and 24. Abraham and Eliezer’s prayers teach us 6 features of prayer: that we should pray with priority, comprehensively, confidently, expectantly, continually and Biblically. At the end of his message, in reference to Eliezer’s experience, Mervyn distinguishes between what we need to pray about, and what we don’t (Message preached 12th May 2019)

Exposition of 1 Timothy Ch 6 (42 min)

Michael Penfold expounds 1 Timothy Ch 6 in which the Ephesian false teachers are condemned, and Timothy, the man of God, is charged – to “keep the commandment” and “guard the deposit”. The apostle Paul exposes those who view godliness as a way to make money and gives general warnings against covetousness. This issue is highly relevant in our day when the “prosperity gospel” is being promoted by false teachers like T.D. Jakes, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen and Brian Houston…

Romanian Gospel Message (24 min)

Listen to the gospel preached in Romanian. Colin Hutchison preaches on 1 Timothy 1:15 “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” and illustrates this Bible verse from the story of 3 sinners in the gospel of Luke who were saved from their sins by the Lord. The message is translated into the Romanian language by Mr David Weir (Message preached 5th April 2019)

How to Know The Lord Better (35 min)

Colin Hutchison preaches on 4 people in John’s gospel who “knew the Lord”, even though the world did not know Him. Why did they know the Lord? Because when He said “do” they did it (2:9); when He said “go” they went (4:53); when He said “wash” they washed (9:25); and when He said “remove the obstacle” they removed it (11:22). If we want to know the Lord better, we must do the same (Message preached 5th May 2019)

Exposition of 1 Timothy Ch 5 (43 min)

Gordon Stewart expounds 1 Timothy Ch 5. After looking at Paul’s words about relationships between the generations and genders in vvs 1- 2, Gordon looks at the instructions about family and assembly support for widows. Finally he picks out some pertinent lessons about elders from the end of the chapter, and takes time to give a warning in connection with the verse “use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake” (Message preached 2nd May 2019)
