'Formative' Sins

'Formative' Sins
Ephesians 4.25 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Formative in the sense that in addition to being deeply offensive to God, they form deep roots in the character, promoting other sins and shaping the whole person, whereas new opposite virtues (performed by the Lord's help) lead to lifelong blessing and usefulness.

The New Person

The New Person
Ephesians 4.17 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

First, an analysis of the sad state of the unsaved heart. Then two levels of transformation: (1) conversion, where putting off the old and putting on the new life is God's work, and (2) details of sanctification, where believers are empowered to act by God.

The Riches of Truth
Ephesians 4.15 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The apostle lays down the vital role of the entire congregation functioning together in evangelism and sanctification. The chief agent of this is 'the truth'. Here we seek to appreciate more fully the privileges and power of the faith entrusted to us.

Valuing your Life

Valuing your Life
James 4.14 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

'What is your life?' asks James, 'it is even a vapour'. Here is material, physical life without God, its instability and brevity, its insubstantial character and its lack of merit and value for eternity. How very different it could be with the intervention of Christ the Lord.

Spiritual Growth

Spiritual Growth
Ephesians 4.13 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Unity defined, not as membership of an organisation, but as a bond between those in union with Christ and bearing His likeness. Then, the opposition believers will know and the answer of holy living. Lastly: service and loyalty to the body, the local church.

The Beginning of the World
Setting aside evolution and affirming a literal six-day creation, this article focuses on the rich spiritual significance and the lessons of the order of events.

A Help to the Study of the Holy Spirit
This brilliant volume does all the biblical spadework for the reader, assembling all the references to the baptism, filling and sealing of the Spirit, and explaining what they mean. It deals also with Holy-Spirit-related terms such as anointing and communion, as well as the emblems of the Spirit, and resisting, grieving or quenching the Spirit. It is for all lovers of the Word, but is a message-preparer’s delight.

Steps for Guidance
In recent years the subject of how to find God’s guidance has become controversial. Some say that God does not have a specific plan for the lives of his people, but allows us to please ourselves.
