When Spring Sprang

Graham McDonald, May 26 2019

Martin Luther said, “Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.” God leaves us messages everywhere, not just the Bible. In Acts 14:15-17, Barnabas and Paul spoke of God as the Creator and the proof was in seeing the beauty of nature that He created.

House To House

Graham McDonald, May 19 2019

Acts 2 contains one of the most famous sermons in history. Peter, who had once denied knowing Jesus at His trial, stood with the other disciples in the grandeur of the Temple and loudly and defiantly declared that Jesus was raised from the dead and the Saviour of all. Countess thousands heard the sermon, and 3,000 were baptised that day. From there...

Say Another Prayer

Graham McDonald, May 12 2019

The first indication of praying to God is in Genesis 4:26 and is ascribed to the family of Seth. Prayer is often implied in Genesis, but much of the teaching of prayer is found in the New Testament. Jesus needed to pray. He taught His disciples how to pray (Luke 11:1-4). He headed for the mountains to pray and prayed on His final night on this eart...

Newness of Life

Graham McDonald, May 5 2019

Is the resurrection important? In 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Paul speaks of the gospel as being the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. So, yes! the resurrection is important. Paul continues in that chapter to argue for the resurrection and the importance it is to Christians. The world may scoff, and the Athenians may have dismissed it, but be sur...

Royal Family

Graham McDonald, April 28 2019

The key to being a royal in the modern world is to not let everyone see all the naughty stuff the rest of the country is up to and to make out that one is setting a good moral example. Sadly, the royals are more like us that we like to think. Peter says that we are a “…royal priesthood…” (1 Peter 2:9). More than that, we are to be boldly and openly...

Easter Sunday

Graham McDonald, April 21 2019

Call it Passover, call it Easter Sunday: that doesn’t really matter. What does matter is what it means: HE IS RISEN! What a story the apostles and other disciples had when they began preaching the gospel: HE IS RISEN! Those two guys on the road to Emmaus talked with Jesus without realising it was Him and their hearts burned within them. Why? Becaus...

Eternity

Graham McDonald, April 14 2019

“I know not what the future holds, but I know Who holds the future.” So said Homer nearly 3,000 years ago. It has since become a popular lyric in a Christian hymnal. For Homer, it was unlikely he was thinking of the one true God. For the Christian, it has to be! Who else can be so faithful and so reliable to deliver on promises about our future tha...

Leadership

Graham McDonald, April 7 2019

What makes a good leader? Is there such a thing as a natural leader? Is leadership training, experience, or a gift? Jesus is a leader. He had followers. Peter calls Him the “…Chief  Shepherd…” (1 Peter 5:4), and the “…Shepherd and Overseer of your souls” (1 Peter 2:25). The good leader has honesty and integrity, confidence, an ability to inspire ot...

Mothers

Graham McDonald, March 31 2019

“The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.” The influence of a godly mother is not to be overestimated. She creates life within her, nurtures that life, and never loses that connections with the child she has borne and loved. Mothers are significant characters in the Bible narrative. Eve was the mother of all living. Sarah wa...

Budget

Graham McDonald, March 24 2019

The word “budget” originally meant “a leather bag, knapsack”. Money was kept in it, so it was a wallet of sorts. It has the same root as the word “bulge”. This congregation has demonstrated a remarkable spirit when it comes to giving. Faith is at the heart of it, and God is able to help us with any need we may have. Truth be told, financial and mat...
