  • Jesus' Preaching

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on May 24, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    Jesus, in his ministry healed the sick, raised the dead, proclaimed God's Kingdom, yet his real work was to proclaim the Good News

    We have just heard that reading from Mark's gospel where we hear of Jesus, first healing Simon's mother-in-law (Do we, by the way, realise that Simon- or Peter as he was renamed, was a married man?), then healing many sick people and driving out many demons in Capernaum. Mark's Gospel is an more

  • Don't Lose You Focus

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on May 20, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    God's people were in exile, facing hardship and a sense of abandonment. But God's plan of resoration cannot fail; we must keep our focus

    The Jews were in exile in Babylon. They had turned their backs on their God, and they were, you might say, in a state on national depression. You only have to, for example, look at the words of Psalm 137: How could we sing the Lord's song in a foreign land? If I forget you, O more

  • The Power Of The Cross

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Mar 14, 2009
    based on 5 ratings

    A consideration of the power of the Cross; those for whom is is God’s power, those for whom it is folly. Shows what God did for us when Christ died on th Cross

    I want to turn this morning to look at the passage from 1 Corinthians chapter 1, which places before us the power of the Cross, and as we journey through Lent toward Holy Week it is surely fitting to do so. The Cross is central to our faith as Christians- but I ask, do we always know and appreciate more

  • Jesus, High Priest Of The New Covenant

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Mar 14, 2009
    based on 1 rating

    Jesus came as High Priest of the New Covenant. What this means for the Christian believer’s security is here explained

    Our reading from Hebrews chapter 10 this morning is headed ’Christ’s Sacrifice once for all’ What the mystery writer of Hebrews is really telling us is that Christ fulfilled, made complete all that was foreshadowed in the Old Testament Covenant. I want to spend a little while just appreciating what more

  • Obey God Or Man?

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Mar 14, 2009
    based on 3 ratings

    The early apostles, arrested for a second time boldly declared that they should obey not man but God.

    There was an item in the news recently, concerning the Bishop of Hereford. The Bishop had turned down a man for an appointment in his diocese because of his gay lifestyle, and found himself in court being charged under the new Sexual Orientation Regulations. Actually, as the Bishop explained to the more

  • The Ten Commandments

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Mar 14, 2009
    based on 1 rating

    Many today take little account of the ten commandments. We do well to be reminded of them, and be aware of our failure and need of a Saviour

  • The Radical Gospel

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Oct 11, 2008
    based on 2 ratings

    Is the Gospel we preach, and the God we preach the same as Paul had preached to the Thessalonians in AD 49?

    The first epistle to the Thessalonian, of which we just heard the first chapter, is the earliest of Paul’s writings. We read in Acts chapter 17 of his visit to Thessalonica (modern-day Salonika) in the year 49; of how he preached in the synagogue for two Sabbaths, but was then driven from the city more

  • The Cross

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Apr 1, 2008

    A study of the Cross, and the meaning of redemption. It entails a study of sin,guilt, curse and alienation and how Jesus overcame these

    Rom 3:9b-26 I feel I stand on holy ground tonight, For we come to think of that which stands at the heart of our faith that without which there would be nothing. And it is incumbent upon me to lead your thoughts. So before I proceed any further I would pause, and ask the Holy Spirit more

  • Christ And The Kingdom

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Dec 4, 2007
    based on 2 ratings

    Preached on the Sunday of ’Christ the King’, this sermon addresses the question-What do we understand when we call Christ King? How does his Kingdom impact our lives?

    On this Sunday, the last before Advent, we used the pray that God would stir-up our wills and affections. It was sometimes known as ’Stir Up Sunday’, we now remember in our church calendar this as the feast of ’Christ the King’, that the Christ for whose advent we are going to prepare is the King. more

  • The Commandments

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Sep 24, 2007
    based on 1 rating

    Godd’s commandments are absolutes, yet they also serve another purpose. They show us our sin and our neeed of a Saviour

    Some years ago the ’Times’ carried an article by Charles Bremner under the heading �Sense and Sensitivity� In it Bremner observed: The Politically Correct culture chimes with the way the country (the USA) is fleeing from risk and moral judgment into the realm of ’victimology’ Every more

  • Out On A Limb For God

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Sep 13, 2007
    based on 4 ratings

    Like David in the OT, the Christian will face the opposition of Satan, and is called to go out on a limb for God.

    We all know well the story of David and Goliath; it’s one we grew up with from Sunday School. It’s a story which catches a popular vein. It’s the story of the underdog winning, winning against the seeming odds. We probably all have some feeling for the underdog, say in a sporting event, and enjoy more

  • The Prodigal Son

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Sep 13, 2007
    based on 15 ratings

    From understanding gained from the Middle East, we see even more amazingly the measure and wonder of God’s grace

    Dr Bailey lived and worked for more than two decades among isolated peasant communities in the Middle East. He stayed in villages which until 10 or 20 years ago had never seen a motor vehicle; where time and tradition have stood still for centuries, even millennia. As he learned of their more

  • Liberation

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Sep 13, 2007
    based on 1 rating

    As Christians who have been set free by Christ, we are called to be liberating people

    As we bring our series of sermons on life rhythms to a close, we think of the role of liberation in our lives, and when we think of ’liberation’ we think,usually, don’t we, in terms of freedom; of ’setting free’ Now, I think you’d all agree that freedom is an important ingredient in life. One more

  • What Does God Think Of Our Worship?

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Sep 13, 2007
    based on 1 rating

    Does our worship honour God by including by being devoted to his glory?

    No source is known for a compendium of ’12 reasons why I don’t wash (or go to church), though it sounds as though it must have come from a small boy. It goes like this: 1. I was forced to wash as a child 2. I’m not dirty 3. I’ll wait until I’m older, then I’ll be dirtier 4. There are too many more

  • The Way Of The Kingdom

    Contributed by Ian Lyall on Mar 12, 2007
    based on 1 rating

    The Sermon on the Mount describes the Christian’s character and way of life. In the concluding verses Jesus gives tests to see if we are really in the Kingdom; on the ’narrow way’

    It’s about six months ago now, since we had a holiday in a caravan in Burnham Market. A lot of you may know Burnham Market, because it’s a place where a lot of people from Newark go for their holidays. Now, we’d never been to this particular caravan site before, so we asked for directions there, more
