Sermon: The Spirit of Reconciliation & Obedience

Preached by Rev. Jacob Crane on Sunday, May 19th, 2019

A part of the series.

What’s the problem with humanity?

As we continue our series on the Holy Spirit, we learn that the despite the constant failures of God’s people to live pleasing lives to God, fulfilling their purpose to be a blessing to other nations, God remains faithful.

His grace and patience aren’t limitless, and when His Holy name is profaned, God acts and judges His people. He acts precisely because of His Holy Name, both in judging Israel and in promising to redeem them. He promised to make Israel a great nation. So He redeems them, promising to place within us, a new heart, and His Spirit.

The problem with humanity, is the human heart.

Sermon: Belief and Divine Revelation

Preached by Rev. Jacob Crane on Sunday, April 28th, 2019

How is it, that those who knew Him best, were unable to recognise Jesus when He was raised from the dead? Why weren’t they able to see Him?

It isn’t until Jesus chooses to reveal Himself, to Mary, to the disciples, and to Thomas, that they can see Him and respond.

And like the historical figures of John 20, like Mary, we can seek the Risen Lord, or like the disciples, we can wait confidently, even when fear and doubt surround us.

Listen to an exposition on Belief and Divine Revelation from John 20.19-31, with a brief summary and inclusion of the opening story of Mary from verses one to 18.

6 Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” Jesus answered, “You do not know now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” Peter said to him, “You will never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no share with me.” Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” 10 Jesus said to him, “One who has bathed does not need to wash, except for the feet, but is entirely clean. And you are clean, though not all of you.” 11 For he knew who was to betray him; for this reason he said, “Not all of you are clean.”

12 After he had washed their feet, had put on his robe, and had returned to the table, he said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord—and you are right, for that is what I am. 14 So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.
