How to Buy a Sermon


    Each of our sermons are around 1,300 words and take about ten minutes to preach as they are written.

    We invite you to use them as a beginning to your own message on those weeks when you just need a bit of help to come up with your own weekly sermon.

    The beginning of the sermons have been provided for you, but you will need to pay for the whole sermon (which includes suggestions for a youth story at the end) before we e-mail you the entire package. We expect you can get a sermon within a couple of hours of ordering - if not right away. Hours are 9 am - 9 pm (EST)

Ephesians 1:15-23 ---"Paul Spills the Tea"


Matthew 25:31-46 --"The Sheep & the Goats"

Sunday Nov. 22 - Reign of Christ

Sermon based on Ephesians 1:15-23


Paul Spills the Tea

Were you ever so enthusiastic about something that in the telling of it, your words spilled out so fast you couldn’t catch your breath?

   That’s what Paul seems to be doing here in the beginning of his letter to the Ephesians. In other words, in today's lingo, he can't help but "spill the tea!" He begins with great eagerness to praise the people for their faith in God and their love towards the saints. And he then launches into a passionate and lively 152-word, run-on sentence of congratulatory admiration that would never pass the must of an English teacher – yet is delightful to all of us who share Paul’s zeal for the blessings of the Lord.

For Paul tells us – as he told the Ephesians – that we are showered with the gifts of wisdom and knowledge; enlightenment and hope; and riches beyond what this little world can comprehend. We are blessed!

   And in today’s world, I can understand how people might miss this fact – might question what those blessings might be. For all around us, we are subjected to a very loud noise of constant criticism for one another; gloom and doom speeches; poverty of material wealth and poverty of souls.

   We live in difficult times. So, the question is: are we going to let the earthly ways control our thoughts and lives? Or can we reach out – for that is what we are called to do – reach out to Christ for peace, comfort and hope in the midst of all the negativity we can so easily allow to dominate the landscape.

   Have you noticed how divided the world seems to be? Even in these times of a world-wide pandemic, there are divisions. Countries are still feuding with one another. And in individual countries, domestic politics are becoming more and more divisive. And churches – oh my – even within congregations, people always have and perhaps always will, disagree with one another. And often, not within the command of showing brotherly and sisterly love towards one another!. .... more

Sunday Nov. 22 - Reign of Christ

Sermon based on Matthew 25:31-46

  

Goats to the Left, 

                       Sheep to the Right

  Today’s parable is often called, the sheep and the goats. Now, for city folk, you might think there isn’t too much difference between the two.     Maybe, one is much higher on the “cute and cuddly” scale than the other – but basically, they’re pasture animals who eat grass – a lot of it. And from what we hear, goats will actually eat ANYTHING … they have a reputation of being a little wilder in behaviour than those cuddly sheep!

   And so, if you’re a farmer, you will know there’s a world of difference between a goat and a sheep.

   But, just as they are two different animals, so today’s scripture is divided up into two parts.

   The first part, as you will have heard and understood, begins with the Son of Man coming to us in all his glory and he will sit on his glorious throne with angels all around it. And he will separate the people just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats..   ..... more
