Sermons by “Jon Lindsay-Scott”
Jon continues our exploration of disciplines in the Bible to help us receive and experience more joy. Psalm 19.8 and Psalm 119.14 & 162 show that we can find joy in God’s Word – all we have to do is READ – with our hearts, not just our heads & with humility.View Sermon
Jon introduces our motto verse for 2021 from 1 Peter 1.6-7, and we discover why seeking and growing in the ‘wonderful joy’ that is part of our inheritance in Christ is so important. It starts with wanting it, and as Jesus tells his disciples in John 16.24, all we need do is ask.View Sermon
What is God doing in your life? Where is He on the move? What are you praying and hoping for?
As we prepare for Christmas, Jon is also encouraging us to prepare for what God’s got planned for you and for Springfield. And to do this we’re going to look at how some of the people involved in the nativity story prepared for God to move. This week is Joseph, in Matthew 1.18-24, who prepares for God to move by putting God first.
In this final Dangerous Prayer, Jon looks at Psalm 139.23-24. This is actually four prayers – 1. Search my heart. 2. Reveal my fears. 3. Uncover my sins. 4. Lead me. And we explore how God wants to answer this prayer to show us the rubbish in our lives that He wants to give us freedom from.View Sermon
Jon explores Abram’s example of tithing as the way to respond to God’s blessings in Genesis 14.17-20 – one of the ways God might answer the dangerous prayer in Psalm 116.12 ‘What can I give?’. We are to Give Thankfully, Give Voluntarily and Give Systematically.View Sermon
Jon finishes our message series on Praying in Circles by looking at praying the long game exploring Daniel 10. God hears our prayers even when we haven’t seen an answer yet, and Daniel reveals the importance of praying through.View Sermon
Jon explores the Quail miracle in Numbers 11 and the question that God asks a bewildered Moses in v.23 – is there any limit to my power? The truth is that God is infinitely bigger than our biggest problems and biggest dreams – so we should dream big and pray big!View Sermon
God loves to make promises. He invites us to draw a circles around those promises and pray until we see them become a reality just like Jericho in Joshua 6.1-16.
God is inviting us into the adventure of seeing His dreams come true in our lives and in our community – and the adventure is called PRAYER.
