In this sermon, part of our ‘Love Wins: Celebrating the Resurrection’ series at St Paul’s Shadwell, I look at the meaning of eternal life. I argue that eternal life is not the end of the world or going to heaven when we die, instead it is union with Christ and participation in his divine humanity. This union with Christ works itself out in a life of love for God and for one another through which we become increasingly transparent to the glory of God. Jesus calls us to abide in him. This is what the life of a disciple is all about.
In this sermon at the beginning of Holy Week we anticipate the cross as Luke laments over Jerusalem even as the crowds sing Hosanna. They believe he is the one who will drive out the Romans for them. Jesus understood their problem wasn’t the Romans, it was their own hearts. Only the cross is the shock therapy we need to open our eyes to the real problem. Only the cross is the antidote to the real infection we all suffer from.
In this sermon from the Pure Sex series at St Paul’s Shadwell’s young adult evening service I explain the significance of marriage, the purpose of marriage and how to prepare for marriage from Ephesians 5:21-33
In this sermon from the Nuclear Families series at St Paul’s Shadwell’s morning family service I look at the shape of discipleship for all of us before exploring what that means for wives and husbands.
In this, the second sermon from the Contagious Christian series at St Paul’s Shadwell, I look at what it means to share God’s love and passion for people far from God.
In this, the first sermon from the Contagious Christian series at St Paul’s Shadwell I argue that Christianity, at it’s heart, is a mission to the world.
Taken from Living Life to the Full on the Book of Colossians, these are two sermons that look at the one life that makes all the difference in the world and how it is only when our lives are placed in his that we find genuine maturity and completion.
Taken from Blink: Glimpsing Jesus in the Old Testament, these are two sermons from the inaugural sermon series at the new evening service at Christ Church Spitalfields. In these sermons I look at the lives of the Patriarchs from the book of Genesis and the way they anticipate, and point towards, Jesus himself.
