The Conquest of Death

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The Greatest Event in History

The Death of Death

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
The purposes of Christ's resurrection. Here also are aspects of the tyranny and ugliness of death which the human mind does not like to think of, to show the scale and magnificence of Christ's victory over it on our behalf. The present and eternal benefits of knowing Him.

True Greatness

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
It is a humbling thought that no 'flesh' shall glory in the presence of God. When He is left out of life, no human ability or accomplishment is acceptable to Him. Here is why; and here is the way, through Christ, to acceptance and union with God.

Our resurrection bodies will be the image of Christ's, constituted for eternal glory: physical, tangible, yet spiritual, powerful and perfect. Death - the great devourer - will be itself swallowed up by the final victory of Christ. Here is how we should be affected and inspired even now.

Jealous for Truth

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The Unique Message of Resurrection

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
The Cross would have disappeared from history as a terminal failure, had not the Resurrection shown its significance and accomplishments. Christ must save soul and body for God's original plan to be brought to pass - a godly host living bodily on a glorified earth.

True Worship

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
When Paul says everyone had a psalm, doctrine, tongue, etc, for worship, he obviously refers to the recognised leaders of the church, as we prove here. These are his inspired directions for orderly worship that includes the full biblical 'agenda', and glorifies Christ.

Understanding is the Key

The Church is Like a Body

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
The Apostle speaks of an individual congregation as a 'body', showing the divine design and the wide differences in the contribution of members. If a church is a preacher only, it is ultimately doomed; that is if there are not roles for all, and no mutual care and dependence.

Hearing God Speak

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
The purpose of spiritual gifts - revealing the New Testament (and authenticating the spokesmen). Paul lists them, with ongoing spiritual gifts and their features. Never for personal indulgence, they bring God's Word to all. Here also is why the church is gloriously called the body of Christ.

Lord’s Supper Sincerity

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
At Corinth the Lord's Supper was ruined and invalidated by being confused with a 'love feast'. Paul shows how we should approach the ordinance and what we should derive from it. It is a deeply moving 'proclamation' of Calvary, and either insincerity or absence leads to chastisement from the Lord.

Christian Dress

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Paul tells women to wear the veil of their society, which symbolised subjection. Our society has not had this dress code for decades. Hats no longer signify subjection. Is Paul's requirement to be literally obeyed today, or may the principle be observed in a different way?

True Followers

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
What Christ left to Paul to reveal.

Putting Self Last

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Closer to Christ

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Backsliding Dangers

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
In the wilderness, the Israelites were punished not only for idolatry and fornication, but also of wanting the foods of Egypt, being dissatisfied with spiritual provisions, and for 'worldly' worship.

Gospel Priorities

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
To be saved by the Gospel means to live for the Gospel. 1 Corinthians 9 is often used to justify compromise with the world, so called 'front line' living, even patronising pubs and clubs. It actually condemns this, presenting real dedication to the Gospel, gaining much instrumentality.

The Glorious Burden

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Dangerous Knowledge

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Spiritual knowledge, though vital, is merely ego-inflating if unaccompanied by active love for Christ, for His cause, and for souls, as well as by an active conscience warning of sin, and urging to Christian duties. Here is how love and conscience work to make knowledge effective, and to keep us…

Urgent Living

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Our lives are ever running lower on time to love and serve the Lord. We cannot make earthly matters, including our home, our chief priority in favour of the cause of Christ and of souls. Are we living too much for things that are doomed to pass away?

Mutual Debts in Marriage

The Indwelling Spirit

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Signs of True Believers

Right and Wrong Aims

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Paul warns against being 'puffed up', vaunting earthly accomplishments or gifts, and being satisfied and overconfident. Consider Gospel workers, says Paul, their humility, selflessness, sacrifice, and acceptance of persecution.

Christ Real to Us

Defining Spiritual Meat

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Spiritual maturity begins and proceeds with a taste for the 'meat' of the Word, but what is this? It is not sound doctrine alone, for 'carnal Christians' often have this. Here it is defined as passages that specifically promote love for Christ, holiness, obedience and consecration.

The Deep Things of God

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
The apostle reproves the Corinthians' taste for over-eloquent preaching decorated in philosophy, showing that Cross-centred persuasions, seemingly inadequate, are the wisdom and the power of God. Would he not condemn today's Christian drama, film, or rock-music centred outreach?

Bringing Down this World’s Wisdom

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
How God humbles the wise, mighty and noble both now and at the last day through the witness of ordinary believers holding forth the Cross alone. Also, how Christ is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption, and how He should be constantly praised by us.

The Wisdom and Power of God

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Corinth was a far better church than many think, but their cultural love of heroes and oratory needed to go (like some of our fads). Paul magnificently elevates the Gospel above all human wisdom. Though foolish to millions, God's call opens minds with converting power.

Christian Privileges

Sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Beginning a series in this remarkable epistle, full of doctrinal, devotional and practical issues. True faults of this church are often exaggerated, distorting the message.
