SERMON: The Trinity and You

adrian preaching trinity at jubilee

This is the video of the sermon I preached this morning followed by a full set of notes. Audio How do you tend to think of God? A Force or Power? A remote ruler? An angry judge? But the Bible reveals that God is intensely personal and he is very interested in you. HE wants to know you.  Part of getting to know someone is getting to know about someone. It is not enough to merely learn about them, but it is a helpful and necessary start. We must know why we believe what we believe … [Read more...]

Jesus the Great Evangelist: a sermon on John 4

Jesus is the model evangelist and we can learn from his example how to get caught up on his mission to seek and save the lost. This is a sermon about the Woman of Samaria in John 4. Brief sermon notes follow the audio. John 4:1-42 We tend to think of Jesus as the Great Shepherd or Pastor, or as the Great Priest, as the Great Apostle of our faith, as the Great Teacher, as the Greatest Prophet of them all. But he was also the greatest evangelist. 1. What do you live for? Jesus … [Read more...]

A Christmas Sermon

20131216-151726.jpg

This week, I will be sharing some sermons that I preached earlier this year and didn't get round to posting on my blog.  I thought I would begin with a seasonal sermon that I preached just this morning at Jubilee Church's Wood Green site, The message was based on Luke 1:26-55. What is Christmas? -A happy time of year in the middle of the cold dark winter…celebrating with lights -A time where a lot of food is eaten A time where family comes together -A time where gifts are … [Read more...]

The Charismatic gifts debate: verses from the Gospels

In the last post I shared some OT verses which speak to the charismatic debate. Today, I continue with some passages from the Gospels. Read these, and try to allow the Bible to shape your viewpoint, not your traditions, whichever side of the fence you have come down on so far. Please also share any key verses I may have missed in the comment section. “Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?” And Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind … [Read more...]

‘Lord Teach Me to Pray’

This post represents the confessions of someone who struggles to know how to pray but is learning. If I was given a few pounds or dollars (I don't take euro's!) every time over the last few decades I have said I want to improve my prayer life I would be a rich man. But I would be much richer still if I had been given money for the times I had either forgotten to pray, or perhaps worse, had remembered to pray but had no clue what to say. In many ways I really don't envy the atheists doing … [Read more...]

Are Christians meant to be the most miserable people on earth? NO! here's why:

Today I continue to serialise an editted transcript of a sermon I preached on joy which you can also watch or listen to. What is this joy? What is this full life? What is it? The joy God gives us is clearly not just a happy feeling, as we will see, but it is a happy feeling. God really does want you to be happy and, as I have said already, many people think of Christians as miserable people. They think that we have given up the pleasures of this world. Perhaps at your work someone will … [Read more...]

Cleansing the Temple – a sermon by Dr Kenneth Ulmer

In the second service on Sunday, Dr Ulmer preached from Matthew 21. He began by asking is your church God's house. He spoke about how man has made it into what it should not be. He urged that churches be known as a house of prayer, so that they would become a house of power, and as a result a house of praise. … [Read more...]

Dr Kenneth Ulmer on the Great Call, Great Commission: Glorify, Go, Wait, Be

Last Sunday at Jubilee Church London we were really blessed to hear from Dr Kenneth Ulmer as a visiting preacher. He preached two completely different sermons from two different passages at our two services. In this first message he began in John 17 focussing on the call we all have on our lives to glorify God. He stressed that each of us have things to do to "accomplish the work" God has set for us as individuals. He then moved to Matthew 28 where he spoke about what framework it is we work … [Read more...]

Jack Hayford on Jesus Washing His Disciples Feet – "One Moment In Time"

Jack Hayford visited Jubilee Church London to preach over the summer. He spoke from John 13, and so I thought I would share it with you here. Most poeple think verse 34 "love one another as I have loved you" is referring to Jesus death. But Jack here argues that surely it is more practically referring to this act of service. Jesus here laid aside symbols of prestige, position and status to serve. In the same way we ought to serve others in his Kingdom. We are called to tenderly care for each … [Read more...]

Have we lost the most important thing – love – and replaced it by holding rocks to throw?

My friend Kevin Brown, pastor of the Perfecting Church writes a fantastic piece called Put The Rocks Down!  I wanted to share a few lines from it here to whet your appetite: "In the U.S.A eight out of ten people describe themselves as Christian but less than half of those people attend church. It’s not due to a shortage of churches, there’s an estimated 300,000 churches in our country. To put that number in context, there are only 31,000 McDonald’s restaurants in the whole world and you … [Read more...]
