  • The Original International Man Of Mystery Series

    Contributed by John Newton on May 1, 2022

    Who was Melchizedek? And how does he relate to Jesus?

    I wonder if anyone can tell me what is the Old Testament passage most frequently quoted in the New Testament… You might think it’s something like Leviticus 19:18, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.” If you’re really into the writings of the minor prophets, you might come up with an more

  • If Stones Could Shout

    Contributed by John Newton on Apr 10, 2022

    As Jesus entered Jerusalem he told the Pharisees, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

    For the next few moments I want you to try to imagine what it must have been like to be among those who stood on the streets of Jerusalem on the first Palm Sunday. (I’ll even let you close your eyes if you like, as long as you promise not to go to sleep!) The city would have been bustling with more

  • The Assurance Of Better Things Series

    Contributed by John Newton on Apr 4, 2022

    Some encouragement for believers who are finding discipleship challenging

    Last Sunday those of you who were here or were watching on YouTube will recall that Pastor Doug Mott led us through the first eight verses of Hebrews 6. Early on in his sermon he quoted one biblical scholar who described those verses as “perhaps the most severe warning that occurs anywhere in the more

  • Consider Jesus

    Contributed by John Newton on Feb 13, 2022

    A look at Jesus, as High Priest, Son Of God and “Sent One”

    As he drew to the conclusion of his gospel the aged apostle John reflected, “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.” It was a common characteristic of those early more

  • Faithful Series

    Contributed by John Newton on Feb 13, 2022

    Jesus is faithful to us—and calls us to be faithful to him

  • What Will We Wear?

    Contributed by John Newton on Jan 15, 2022

    Paul tells us about the spiritual wardrobe that the Holy Spirit provides for us

    “What will we wear?” Back when I was first ordained, that was a question that many people asked themselves on a Sunday morning. In those days, people used to dress up for church. Tie straight, pants pressed, shoes polished… People would talk about putting on their Sunday best. By and large, that more

  • In The Mean Time...

    Contributed by John Newton on Jan 15, 2022

    God has promised us a new creation and empowers us to live it in the here and now, as it has already been purchased for us through Jesus’ death on the cross.

    Years ago (in fact it was the first summer after we were married), Karen and I decided that we would spend our summer vacation visiting her relatives and my birthplace here in Nova Scotia. We didn’t have a large salary between us, and we were young and adventuresome, so we decided that it would be more

  • No Condemnation!

    Contributed by John Newton on Jan 15, 2022

    Through his Son Jesus Christ God has rescued us from both the penalty and the power of sin

    Allow me to begin by saying what tremendous joy it gives me to be worshiping with you “at” Messiah once again. Even though we can’t be with one another physically, it has been a joy for Karen and me to be able to join with you virtually for your online services. At the same time, I have to say more

  • Great Grace Was Upon Them All

    Contributed by John Newton on Nov 22, 2021

    Three characteristics of the first Christian congregation

    I want to begin by saying what a privilege I consider it, to be invited into this pulpit on the occasion of your anniversary. Karen and I have just been attending over the last five weeks and it are clear to both of us that God is doing great things in and through this church. Thirty-three years! more

  • Hosanna To The Lamb!

    Contributed by John Newton on Nov 22, 2021

    A call to worship with the saints

  • "The Wind Blows Where It Wills”

    Contributed by John Newton on May 24, 2021

    The wind that blew through the upper room at Pentecost still blows today

    It’s probably been a long time since you were in a room with a hundred and twenty people. But I want you to do your best to imagine it anyway. You might even need to close your eyes for a moment—as long as you promise not to fall asleep! The scene I want you to form in your minds is, of course, more

  • The Real Miracle Of Pentecost

    Contributed by John Newton on May 24, 2021

    A focus on what happened after the events in the Upper Room

    I wonder how many people had their TV sets switched on yesterday morning at 5 o’clock. That’s when the CBC coverage of the royal wedding began and for the next five hours I can only imagine that millions of viewers were glued to their screens, trying to catch a glimpse of this or that celebrity more

  • They Wanted To See

    Contributed by John Newton on Mar 21, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    Bartimaeus and Zacchaeus both wanted to see…

    During my years in active pastoral ministry a large proportion of my reading was taken up with biblical, pastoral and theological works. So, one of the goals that I set for myself in retirement was to read more fiction. I have to admit that thus far I haven’t managed to live up to that resolution more

  • Lost And Found

    Contributed by John Newton on Mar 21, 2021

    A look at the three figures in one of Jesus’ most famous parables

    One of my greatest delights in the church where I last served in Minnesota was to be part of a group of men who met faithfully every Wednesday morning for prayer, followed each week by coffee and conversation. Both the prayer and the conversation could be pretty free ranging at times. But I have to more

  • Here Is Your Son…

    Contributed by John Newton on Mar 26, 2017

    Reflections on Jesus’ words to Mary and John from the cross

    At the cross her station keeping, Stood the mournful mother weeping, Close to Jesus to the last. Through her heart, his sorrow sharing, All his bitter anguish hearing, Now at length the sword had pass’d. Oh, how sad and sore distress’d Was that mother, highly blest Of the more
