September 11, 2017 11:45 AM PDT

Pastor Greg Good preaching on the narrative of the Rich Young Ruler and his interaction with Jesus. Jesus is the desire of our hearts, and to follow Jesus fulfills that desire. However, there are other loves (of money, of stuff, of vocation, etc.) that distract us from that desire. We are want Jesus, and we want eternal life, but are we willing to give up that one thing that we lack?

Gospel Perspectives: Baptism
August 29, 2017 11:51 AM PDT

The final sermon in our summer series on Gospel Perspectives, on the topic of baptism. And the shift in our thinking on it is this: Baptism is the first step that "YOU take with the disciple that YOU are making", not merely the first step that "I take in my personal journey as a disciple of Jesus". Baptism needs to be understood in the context of disciple making. If you understand the Great Commission, baptism is the responsibility of the disciple maker, not merely a step of faith of the disciple. And if the person who you are discipling does not want to get baptized, that means the following: 1) You haven't finished the first step in the disciple making process. 2) they haven't fully made a pledge to identify with the death and resurrection of Jesus. And if you have never been baptized of your own volition, how are you supposed to tell your disciple to be baptized, if you are not willing to do so yourself? (Acts 10:48, Acts 2:36-38, Colossians 2:12-14, 1 Peter 3:18-21, Romans 6:3-4)

Gospel Perspectives: Making Disciples
August 21, 2017 08:19 AM PDT

This may not be my best sermon, but I would say that this is one of the most important messages that Christians need to hear. The most basic instruction for all Christians is this: Make Disciples. All authority in heaven and all authority on earth is given to Jesus, and because of this reality (therefore), we are commanded to make disciples. However, we should not be confused between "making disciples" and "discipleship". They are not the same thing. We are not commanded to "do discipleship" but we are commanded to make disciples. (Matt 28:18-20, 2 Tim 2:2, Matt 13:18-23, James 2:14-17)

Gospel Perspectives: Reputation (Part 3)
August 14, 2017 09:25 AM PDT

We continue our study of "Reputation" from a Gospel perspective, particularly with it's application to friendship within a local church family. In order to gain an understanding on this, we first need to reflect on hermeneutics (the study of "how to study" the bible), as we apply this to Galatians 3:28. We need to try to discern why Paul uses this verse in his teaching to the Galatian church. And the bottom line is: Unity in the local church. Don't divide or separate over stupid reasons. Though the christians didn't believe that God showed favouritism, they acted like God showed favouritism. This is not in line with the Gospel. To form cliques, to separate, and to hang out with only our friends or those who we are comfortable with (who follow our traditions), then Christ has died for nothing! We are all ONE in Christ. (Galatians chapters 1 through 3, 1 Corinthians 11:17-34)

This sermon considers the reality of Jesus as our King. He is the ultimate King of kings. And we are his subjects, here to do his will. May His kingdom come!

Gospel Perspectives: Reputation (Part 2)

One of the areas of our lives where our reputations come from is in the context of friends. Who are we friends with? And for this sermon we will consider how our friendships with people who are outside of our church family affects our reputation. Our example is Jesus, whose reputation with outsiders was this: A friend of sinners. (1 Cor 15:33, 1 Cor 5:9-10, Matthew 11:18-19, 1 Cor 6:9-10, 1 Peter 4:3-4, 1 Cor 5:12-13a, Matthew 10:16-32)

Gospel Perspectives: Reputation (Part 1)

We continue to look at different topics from a gospel perspective, and this sermon focuses on our reputations. The New Testament describes the importance of having a good reputation. However, seeking to have a good reputation as a goal of our lives is disastrous to our faith. If we are focused first on gaining or keeping our good reputation, that is the path of hypocrisy. Instead, we should be focused first on seeking to do the will of God, and then, if we do the deeds of what God has asks us to do (Disciple Making, Ministry, Generosity, Righteousness), our good reputation will be the result. (Acts 6:3, 10:22, 22:12, 1 Peter 2:12, Matthew 5:16, 1 Tim 3:7, Revelation 3:1-6, Matthew 7:21-23, 10:32-33, Luke 12:8-9, Matthew 6:1-2, 5, 16)

Gospel Perspectives: Worry

This summer we are looking at various topics from a Gospel Perspective, and this week we are going to be considering "worry". Either we can be a slave to money, or be a slave to God, but we cannot serve both. Since we want to serve God, this means that we sacrifice financial stability for the sake of the gospel. It is at this point that we start to worry about our future security. And Jesus' answer to this is fairly blunt: "Do not worry about your life". (Matthew 6:25-34, Philippians 4:5)

Gospel Perspectives: Money

We are starting our summer series on various topics from a Gospel Perspective. And we start with the topic of money. In Canada we are all rich and wealthy. The poorest person in Canada who is on welfare is richer than 80% of the global population. If we have any sort of income, we are probably in the top 2% of the richest people in the world. We are all rich, but we don't feel rich. Because we struggle with a love of money. Yet, we cannot love money and serve God. A person cannot be a slave of God and a slave of money. (Ecclesiastes 5:10-11, Matt 6:19-24, Matt 13:22)

We had the privilege of hearing from Siegfried Klassen, president and missionary of "To All Nations" Ministries. He shared with us about the importance of Disciple Making, and encouraged us to spell love: "T-I-M-E".
