attributes of God, biblical sermons, Biblical truth, Book of Psalms, Christian doctrine, Christianity, Gervaise Charmley, God's grace, God's holiness, God's justice, Praise God, The Lord, The Lord Jesus Christ
I have selected two sermons for this Sunday. Both are relatively inexperienced pastors (compared to those whose sermons are usually posted here). One only commenced preaching in 2002, and subsequently undertook formal training (Gervaise Charmley). The other is currently studying at theological college and is the student minister at my church (see my next post). Both of them preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ through the mighty power of the Holy Spirit.
May you be blessed by these messages.
Sermon 1: Worthy of Trust
Psalm 146 (Scripture available below)
Bethel Evangelical Free Church
Hanley, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, UK
1 Praise ye the Lord.
Praise the Lord, O my soul.
2 While I live will I praise the Lord:
I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
3 Put not your trust in princes,
Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth;
In that very day his thoughts perish.
5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help,
Whose hope is in the Lord his God:
6 Which made heaven, and earth,
The sea, and all that therein is:
Which keepeth truth for ever:
7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed:
Which giveth food to the hungry.
The Lord looseth the prisoners:
8 The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind:
The Lord raiseth them that are bowed down:
The Lord loveth the righteous:
9 The Lord preserveth the strangers;
He urelieveth the fatherless and widow:
But the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
10 The Lord shall reign for ever,
Even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations.
Praise ye the Lord.
About the Pastor (from sermonaudio.com):
Gervase N. Charmley was born in Norwich in 1980 and converted to Christ during his first term at Chester University, England in 1998. He was baptized in 2000 and began preaching in 2002. He trained at the London Theological Seminary in 2004-6. He emphasizes the doctrines of the Bible, and especially the penal substitution of Christ on the Cross at Calvary. He was an itinerant preacher from 2006-2009, when he served six months as Assistant pastor at Tabor Baptist Church, Llantrisan, South Wales. In September 2009 he was called to minister at Bethel Evangelical Free Church, Hanley, Stoke on Trent, and was called as the pastor of Bethel in the Spring of 2010.
