  • Christians Are The Chosen People

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Apr 17, 2018
     | 3,946 views

    A look at Election and the place of Free Will based on Jesus' words "Many are called but few are chosen" in Matthew 22

    Matthew 22: 1 – 14 (emphasise v. 14) Jesus said ‘Many are called but few are chosen’. This raises three questions, 1. on what basis are people ‘chosen’, 2 why are only a ‘FEW chosen’? and 3 who does the choosing? God alone, or o we have any free will in the ...read more

  • What The Ascension Of Jesus Meant To Him, And To Means To Us

    Contributed by David Mcnally on May 20, 2014
     | 3,777 views

    Many Christians seem to ignore the Ascension, and even seem embarrassed to talk about Jesus physically going up into the clouds, but it is a historical fact. Jesus had done everything His Father required of Him, and He is now by His side working for us.

    Acts 1:6-11 Eph 1:18-23 The Ascension 29 MAY 2014 The New Testament records how Jesus died on what we now call Good Friday and how He rose from the dead on what we now call Easter Sunday. I prefer to call it Resurrection Sunday, 1. because the word Easter is not in the Bible, ...read more

  • The Question And The Only Right Answer To It

    Contributed by David Mcnally on May 5, 2014
     | 1,906 views

    The question which the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas 2,000 years ago is still relevant today and we have to encourage people to ask it, and no matter how 'diverse' or 'multi-cultural' our society is, there is only one correct answer to it.

    Psalm 34:1-9 and 17-22 (all) emphasize v.22 Acts 16: 16-34 Sermon: What must I do to be Saved? There's only one answer to that question. “Saved”. A little 5-letter word usually being the past tense of the verb “save” which means 'set free' or ...read more

  • Most Certainly True

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Apr 19, 2014
     | 1,794 views

    Man things have changed in the last 200 years, some for the better and some for the worse, but the Gospel message remains the same. What was 'most certainly true' for the first Christians should be the same for churches and preachers of the Word today.

    Matthew 28 verses 16 - 20 Romans 10 verses 5 -15 We are the heirs or the spiritual descendents of the eleven disciples or apostles, who witnessed Jesus' death and His resurrection, and spent over 5 weeks with Him before He ascended into heaven where He is seated at the right hand of the ...read more

  • Patience Is A Fruit Of The Holy Spirit, But There Is A Place For Action

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Apr 6, 2014
     | 3,493 views

    God ran out of patience with sinful humanity, and sent the Flood. He ran out of patience with Sodom and Gomorrah and sent fire and brimstone. Jews waited patiently for the Messiah, as we wait for His return, but do we have to be patient about everything?

    Isaiah 35: 1-10 Matthew 11: 2-11 James 5: 7-10 Sermon: Patience: a virtue, and fruit of the Holy Spirit In one of the episodes of 'The Simpsons', Homer goes into a Hamburger place. The sign outside says 'Fast Food', but on the counter a sign says: 'Orders served in 2 minutes'. He ...read more

  • True Love Is Practical Love

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Mar 13, 2014
     | 3,546 views

    God's love for us is not abstract but real, practical and eternal; so when Jesus says we should love our neighbour it means our love for those around us should also be real and practical.

  • Prayer And The Lord's Prayer

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Feb 24, 2014
    based on 1 rating
     | 3,244 views

    The Lord's Prayer is not a 'carved in stone' set of words that we must use, but is a good guide for how to talk to God, Who wants us to pour out of hearts to Him, but not to try to impress others by our long and fancy words and 'super-spirituality'.

  • True Faith Is Practical Faith

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Feb 9, 2014
     | 5,466 views

    True Christian faith is not just an abstract, theoretical, thing but something which affects our thoughts, words and actions, and not just on Sundays, but every day of the week

    Hebrews chapter 11 verses 1 - 3 and 12 verses 1 - 3 True faith is practical faith, with examples Everyone, even the most committed Atheist, has faith of some kind, and that faith always has some practical outworking. Theoretical faith is OK up to a point but is not much good if it has no ...read more

  • We Have A Scapegoat

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Feb 8, 2014
     | 4,357 views

    In the OT the blood of sacrificed animals was shed to take away the sins of the people and this had to be done annually, but when Jesus went to the cross on our behalf in obedience to the Father's will, our sins were taken away once and for all.

    Leviticus 16:1-22 Our Scapegoat Do you remember, when David Cameron, Nick Clegg and the Coalition took over from Gordon Brown and Ed Balls after the last election, the new Chancellor of the Exchequer found a note from the outgoing one saying 'There is no money, it has all ...read more

  • Baptism Divides God's Church But Should Unite It

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Feb 8, 2014
     | 2,645 views

    John the Baptiser preached repentance and Jesus who had no sin was baptised by John, and the first Christians were baptised. The church should be united with regard to this Sacrament or Ordinance but is sadly divided over belief and practice.

    Text: Luke 3: 21 and 22 ‘After all the people had been baptised, Jesus also was baptised and a voice came down from heaven, ...read more

  • Outward Religion Is Not Acceptable To God

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Jan 25, 2014
     | 3,439 views

    God demands true faith, true repentance, true worship, not the outward show of 'religiosity'

  • John The Baptist And What He Said And What He Heard

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Jan 17, 2014
    based on 1 rating
     | 3,862 views

    John the Baptist, the last of the OT prophets or the first of the NT, proclaimed Law and the need to repent, but also Gospel and how to be forgiven. He looked forward to Jesus and must have been elated when he was told what Jesus said and did

    Matthew 11: 2-15 The message John the Baptist preached and the message he received Lutherans are very firm on teaching Law and Gospel and emphasising the correct distinction between the two. We need them both, Law and Gospel, God's Law, rules, duties and ...read more

  • Looking Back On 2013 Or Generally

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Jan 17, 2014
     | 10,151 views

    It is good to look back to see where we have come from (sin) so we can appreciate where we are going to (salvation), and particularly at the end of one year and the beginning of another.

    Looking back on 2013 or looking back in time generally According to the Bible we should look forward much more than we look back, but there is nothing wrong with looking back on our successes, so we can repeat them, and looking back on our mistakes, to learn from them in order to make ...read more

  • Looking Forward

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Jan 17, 2014
    based on 1 rating
     | 6,275 views

    Once forgiven and assured that we are in Christ we can face the future with confidence, not because we have learned from our mistakes, but because we know we are getting nearer in time and spiritually, to God our Almighty and heavenly Father.

  • The Athanasian Creed: All Truth

    Contributed by David Mcnally on May 26, 2013
     | 1,877 views

    There are three Ecumenical Creeds which were constructed in the early days of the Church, to communicate Scriptural truth and combat errors. We can use them as tools for evangelism.

    The purpose and value of the Athanasian Creed: ‘all truth’ John 16 v. 13 We are here today because we believe certain things about God and Jesus. If we did not believe them we would be in a different place, a different church. If we did not believe any of them we wouldn’t ...read more
