  • The Lord Is Good

    Contributed on Jan 6, 2019

    A short sermon for a funeral service. I wrote this talk for the funeral of a Christian person.

    In Nahum 1.7—a book in the Bible not often heard—the prophet Nahum says, “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7). It may seem counter-intuitive to consider this verse at a funeral when death is clearly on our minds. How can we say that the ...read more

  • I'm Too Proud To Be Humble

    A simple Christmas Day sermon around the theme of humility. A little shorter than normal and I tried to be jargon free.

    Introduction—humility. Someone once said, “Swallow your pride occasionally, it’s non-fattening”. I wish on a day like today that fruit cake, chocolate and pavlova were non-fattening. One of my favourite humility sayings is, “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, its thinking of yourself ...read more

    A Good Friday sermon

    A few years ago I witnessed a head on collision between two cars. The car about 300 metres in front of me collided head-on with a vehicle overtaking a truck in the opposite direction. I had a clear, unobstructed view of the incident. The cars collided head-on but off-centre. So they rotated when ...read more

  • Are We Serious About Hell?

    Contributed on Sep 1, 2011

    This talk examines two common alternatives to the traditional idea of hell: universalism and annihilationism.

    The bow of God’s wrath is bent, and the arrow made ready on the string, and justice bends the arrow at your heart, and strains the bow, and it is nothing but the mere pleasure of God, and that of an angry God, without any promise or obligation at all, that keeps the arrow one moment from ...read more
