Passage: John 20:1-18
Series: General
Duration: 15 mins 15 secs
Mary went to the tomb and found nothing. For we who believe the testimony of scripture, the tomb containing nothing meant Jesus was risen. He is Risen! So this “nothing” is the most important something we will ever encounter. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/YnLfG4HLG5E ) [Organ/Choir - Easter Sunday]

Remembering Jesus’ suffering and death, how can we call this day “good’? There is no address or podcast for today, as the service was a series of readings alternating with imaginative narratives from various people involved.

“Do This in Remembrance of Me.” With the Lord’s Supper, Jesus gave us a gift that takes us into his presence. His Word with the bread and wine bring us into his saving acts of grace completed that very first Easter, but also gifted anew when we receive this meal. It is a foretaste of the heavenly banquet with Jesus, also promised for us in heaven.

Passage: Mark 15:1-39
Series: General
Duration: 18 mins 8 secs
As Jesus entered Jerusalem, people cheered him with various expectations. Jesus came as a king like no other, humble and intent on serving, even those who hated him, with his own life. Those who know him as king celebrate this festival with bitter sweet joy and sorrow. It is important that we don't let the spectre of Good Friday, just days away, rob us of the joy of welcoming him as king with childlike excitement and expectation. We have the great privilege of knowing him as the risen and eternal king who welcomes us into his heavenly kingdom, and who also invites us to walk his path of obedience and humility, serving the world in his name.

Passage: John 12:20-33
Series: General
Duration: 15 mins 34 secs
Jesus says in the gospel reading today, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified” (John 12:20​-33). But what does Jesus mean that the Son of Man will be glorified? He calls us to follow him to the cross, and be met there by our gracious God who is there for us and all in need, and who calls and commissions us to go into the world with hope and new life for all. Here is the hour of glory. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/zhHzbb1EUsw ) [Organ/Choir - Lent 5]

Passage: John 3:14-21
Series: General
Duration: 15 mins
Some people think that God must be angry with sin. But his word tells a different story, a story of the most amazing love, a story of rescue rather than condemnation. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/omewOf737Hk ) [Organ/Choir - Lent 4]

Duration: 17 mins 42 secs
“The Power of God Is in Jesus’ Sacrifice on the Cross.” “More power to you”. Do you know this saying? What is power and do you have it? We often look for meaning in all the wrong places. God says clearly and powerfully, the message of the cross and the person of Jesus in giving his life is God’s power for you. And you have power to share.

Passage: Mark 8:31-38
Series: General
Duration: 16 mins 53 secs
When Jesus calls his disciples to take up their cross and follow him, he clearly indicates discipleship is not without suffering, and that to love others as he loves involves self-denial, even losing one's life. Christian discipleship does not bring happiness at no cost to self – this is not how God transforms a broken world. We join Christ in his victory, but also in his humiliation, rejection and sacrifice in obedience to the will of God.

Passage: Mark 1:9-15
Series: General
Duration: 14 mins 7 secs
“What time is it?” At the beginning of Mark’s Gospel, Jesus announces that “the time has been fulfilled”. What does this mean for us? Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection bring those who trust in him, sure and eternal life, free from the power of sin, death, and the evil one. But he also calls us to know the time is now to follow where he leads in bringing the gospel to the world. The time is now to dwell in the gospel, and to go with it to the people around us.
