New life in Jesus' kingdom: character - what sort of people? 11.15 am 5/11/17
Donald Hay
What sort of people are we called to be in Jesus’ kingdom? The Beatitudes provide a ‘person description’ which is evidenced in the ministry of Jesus. We are called to be like him, and hence to be salt and light in our world. To be like him we need to draw close to him daily in prayer and in reading his Word.

New life in Jesus' kingdom: hearing the good news - 11.15 am 1/10/17
Donald Hay
Donald explores the meaning of Jesus’ summons to ‘Follow me’, both for the first disciples and for those who would be disciples now. Signing up for his kingdom or rule requires acceptance of God’s purposes in history to rescue our broken world, and each Christian is called to be part of that. Such a view of human life is profoundly countercultural.

Jesus and the Cross: Reconciliation with God - 11.15 am 2/7/17
Donald Hay
Reconciliation with God requires justice to be done. Donald explores aspects of reconciliation: the need, arising from sin; the basis in Christ’s death on the Cross; the scope, the person ‘in Christ’ is ‘new creation’; and our ministry of reconciliation in our broken world.

Jesus and the Cross: redemption – ‘you were bought with a price’ - 11.15 am 4/6/17
Donald Hay
St Paul appeals to the image and context of the freeing of slaves, and the adoption of freed slaves as heirs, to illustrate how Jesus’ death on the Cross redeems us from the slavery of sin and opens the way to becoming, in Christ, adoptive sons and daughters of God. The challenge is to live lives that are consistent with our freedom and adopted status.

Jesus and the Cross: Justification - 11.15 am 8/5/17
Donald Hay
Donald addresses the ‘big picture’ of God’s strategy to deal with the problem of human sin and its consequences for his creation project. The righteousness of God is identified with ‘justification’, and Christ’s death on the Cross provides for all humankind the means of being put right with God, which we can appropriate by faith in Jesus Christ, thus becoming part of the new humanity in Christ.

Jesus and his Cross: Substitution and Sacrifice - 11.15 am 4/2/17
Donald Hay
Donald focuses on Romans 8: 3, exploring the meaning of three phrases as applied to Jesus and his Cross: ‘sin offering’, ‘in the likeness of sinful man’, and ‘God....by sending his own Son’. ‘Sin offering’ is interpreted in the light of the OT sacrificial system in Leviticus 4. The ‘likeness of sinful man’ indicates the role of Jesus as our representative and substitute, exemplified in the suffering Servant of Isaiah 53. The sermon notes that the Cross is for the whole world, and that ‘changes everything'

Jesus and the Cross: the consequence of sin - 11.15 am 5/3/17
Donald Hay
Donald explores the significance of death as a consequence of human sin, distinguishing between biological death and metaphysical/ moral death. There is a contrast between two ‘humanities’ – in Adam and in Christ. The former leads to death and separation from God in eternity: the destiny of those in Christ is the gift of righteousness and eternal life.

Jesus and his Cross: the problem of sin
Donald Hay
The sermon explores the problem of sin, as explained by St Paul: the refusal to acknowledge God, the turn to ‘idolatry’, and God’s policy of non-interference (‘God gave them over..’). Sin is a endemic feature of societies and cultures. God’s wrath is his implacable hostility to the destruction that sin has brought upon humanity. And his response, in love, is the Cross.

Jesus and His Cross: 'The hour has come' - 11.15 am 4/12/16
Donald Hay
The Cross of Jesus was the critical turning point in human history, with implications for Jesus, for all humanity, and for his disciples. For Jesus, it meant suffering and glory. For humanity, it offered hope that the power of sin is broken. For his disciples (including us), it involves walking in his light and living lives of sacrificial service.

Jesus and His Cross: the Last Supper - 11.15 am 6/11/16
Donald Hay
Donald focuses on three terms in Matthew’s account of the Last Supper: passover, covenant, and forgiveness of sins. Jesus is announcing that his death on the Cross will seal a new covenant between God and his people, whose sins will be forgiven (as promised by the prophet Jeremiah). The challenge to the church is to live as his covenant people today.
