Sermons by “Jon Lindsay-Scott”
In James 3.13-18 we see how important heavenly wisdom is for us to navigate the trials and chaos of life. Jon sets out 6 principles of wisdom to not just learn but to ask God to write on our hearts – the wise have a pure heart, love peace, consider others, are willing to yield, minimise others’ mistakes and are authentic.View Sermon
Jon continues our exploration through the book of James, this week looking at James 2.1-13. James 2 says we must not show favouritism, but, instead, love our neighbour as ourselves. The enemy wants to divide the Church, and we need to be intentional and diligent to preserve our unity. We have to fight together against division. Our Heavenly Father has no favourites.View Sermon
In a scattered generation, we have to determine if the world or the Word will be the basis for how we live our lives. When we have an attitude that gratefully receives, humbly accepts, and intently embraces the truth of God’s Word, we will be blessed!View Sermon
Jon kicks off our new message series working through the book of James, starting with James 1.1-18 and Trials and Temptations. Trials happen to us and Temptations happen in us, but in both cases if we don’t give up we win.View Sermon
Jon explores Matthew 6.5-8, and discovers that for Jesus, prayer isn’t just a thing he does, but it’s the way he lives. Furthermore, we see that Intimacy with God is never accidental. So when you’ve given up on prayer, or you’re finding it hard to pray – there is a better way!
Why not try some (or all) of the following ways to respond?
Jesus lived and loved a better way – he always gave his undivided attention in the moment. Jon looks at John 2.8-10 and Luke 18.35-19.10 and finds that the only way you can be present in the moment is to surrender a past your can’t change and trust God with a future you can’t control.View Sermon
Do you ever feel like Christianity isn’t working? Maybe you’re burned out by the busyness of life, or you’re discouraged that prayers don’t seem to work. You’re doing the right things but everything keeps going wrong? Jesus offers us a better way. In this sermon we look at John 14: 1-6 and Matthew 11.28-30.View Sermon
Jon kicks off our new year with a new motto verse from Matthew 19.26 – Everything is possible with God. Nowhere is this more apparent than in 2 Samuel 23.20 where Benaiah chases a lion into a pit on a snowy day.View Sermon
