    Peter and James greet the church as one that is in exile or in the dispersion. This is reference to the time when Israel was outside the land of Canaan. What does a wilderness or exile have to do with prayer? How can this be encouraging? How will being in the wilderness help us to […] The post May It Be (LD 52; Matthew 6:13) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Deliver Us Through Our Testing (LD 52; Matthew 6:13) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    07/06/2010

    As we live our Christian life do we stop to think about what it really means when we ask the Lord not to test us? However, this is in the Lord’s prayer. Why is this request here that we do not want to be tested, and that we will stand up during this testing? What […] The post Deliver Us Through Our Testing (LD 52; Matthew 6:13) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Forgive our Debts as We Forgive our Debtors (LD 51; Matt. 6:12) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    31/05/2010

    The kingdom comes with Christ. It is in Christ that there is forgiveness, and reconciliation to the true God of heaven. If we are reconciled to the living God, why must we forgive others? Is this forgiveness conditional meaning that as we forgive someone we receive more forgiveness? Is this forgiveness fruit of living in […] The post Forgive our Debts as We Forgive our Debtors (LD 51; Matt. 6:12) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread (LD 50; Matthew 6:11) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    24/05/2010

    Many times when we go through life we pray after we need or want something. Many times it is easy for us to think that we pray when it is a Spiritual need, and when it is a physical need we will take care of it using our resources. Is this really consistent with what […] The post Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread (LD 50; Matthew 6:11) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Your Will Be Done (LD 49; Matt. 6:10 | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    17/05/2010

    When we read about Adam in the garden of Eden scripture tells us that he was created perfect, and was created to do the will of the Lord. We know that Adam failed to do the Lord’s will. Adam’s sin brought sin and death to humanity, and even this creation is under a curse. If […] The post Your Will Be Done (LD 49; Matt. 6:10 | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Your Kingdom Come (LD 48; Matthew 6:10) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    10/05/2010

    Christ tells us not to pray like the Pharisees who make a show of their prayer. Also, we are not to pray like the gentiles who pray hoping that God or a god will hear a prayer. If we pray to our Father in heaven what sorts of things ought we to request? We continue […] The post Your Kingdom Come (LD 48; Matthew 6:10) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Hallowed Be Your Name (LD 47; Matt. 6:9) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    26/04/2010

    Many psalms identify God as the Lord of lords and the King of kings. This is a very strong statement to make regarding the power of God. There have been strong emperors and kings who have ruled throughout world history. If this is a true claim about the Lord then why do we have to […] The post Hallowed Be Your Name (LD 47; Matt. 6:9) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    19/04/2010

    When Israel had a king they knew to whom they could make their requests. Israelites could try to meet with the king or a king’s advisor to talk with the king. This must have been great to see the one who ruled over Israel, and to know that you could put your request to him.

    "Do Not Pray as the Hypocrites Do" (Matt. 6:5-8; LD 45) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    12/04/2010

    Thank you for downloading our sermon preached on Sunday, April 11, 2010. Our Lord knows all things. God does not need us to teach him anything. In fact, Christ states in the context of prayer that our heavenly father already knows what we need. If this is the case why do we pray? What is […] The post "Do Not Pray as the Hypocrites Do" (Matt. 6:5-8; LD 45) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    05/04/2010

    We just had the opportunity to see another round of the Olympics in the not too distant past. It is still remarkable to watch the athletes as they compete with one another. The winner of each competition gets a gold piece of medal commemorating their accomplishment. Is this piece of gold really something that lasts […] The post Running the Race in Christ (LD 44; 1 Cor. 9:19-27) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Rejoicing in Truth (LD 43; Eph. 4:25) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    22/03/2010

    When we were younger we learned that it was rude to lie. In fact, even today if you listen to non Christians teach their children they know that the act of deception is wrong, and they discourage their children. When we as Christians say that it is wrong to lie, do we merely think that […] The post Rejoicing in Truth (LD 43; Eph. 4:25) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Let the Thief Labor (LD 42; Ephesians 4:28) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    15/03/2010

    It is easy for us to go through life thinking that thieves and robbers belong in jail. It might be easy for us to go about our day to day business thinking that we are not as bad as those robbers who belong behind bars. This might be a fine way to console ourselves, but […] The post Let the Thief Labor (LD 42; Ephesians 4:28) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    08/03/2010

    When we think about the seventh commandment, the command against adultery, many times we may think that this command only speaks about committing physical sins with another person. It is true that this commandment certainly is a command that is a sin against the body, but what else is implied in this command? Why is […] The post Living in the Temple (LD 41; 1 Cor. 6:12-20) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    01/03/2010

    Many times we speak of a Christian ethic. What is a Christian ethic, and what is distinctively Christian about it? Is this something that anyone can do? Is this merely a matter of will power or desire? Is there really something that is distinctively Christian about these ethics? How does Christ fit into these ethics?

    Motivation to Submit to Authority (LD 39; Ephesians 6:1-9) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    22/02/2010

    The apostle Paul tells children to obey their parents. It is after this command to children that Paul then tells fathers not to overwhelm their children with their discipline. Slaves are to obey their masters, and masters are not to treat their slaves harshly. What is the hope for the slave that is abused? What […] The post Motivation to Submit to Authority (LD 39; Ephesians 6:1-9) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    15/02/2010

    Christian churches meet normally meet together on Sunday. Why do we come together on the first day of the week when Israel used to worship on the last day of the week? Are we adding something to scripture that is not there? Is there implicitly a command for us to meet together on the first […] The post Collecting on the Eighth Day (LD 38; 1 Cor. 16:1-4) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Can a Christian Take an Oath? (LD 37; Misc. Texts) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    08/02/2010

    Christians are asked to take oaths in the court of law, and in different circumstances. Is this practice of oath take a violation of our Christian principles? Is this practice of oath taking violating my ability to honor my God? What kind of oath is a Christian allowed to take? These are some of the […] The post Can a Christian Take an Oath? (LD 37; Misc.

    Living Not to Blaspheme (LD 36; Romans 14) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    01/02/2010

    Christian liberty is generally about what we can freely do in the confidence of faith without violating an explicit command of the Lord. However, we can also look at Christian liberty as potentially blaspheming the name of the Lord. How can we blaspheme the name of the Lord by enjoying this creation?

    Faith Comes Through Hearing (LD 35; Romans 10:14-17) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    25/01/2010

    If it is true that God calls his people before the foundation of the world then what is the point of the preaching of the gospel? If it is true that God breaths new life into His people without their choosing then why meet together as a church? If it is true that God chooses […] The post Faith Comes Through Hearing (LD 35; Romans 10:14-17) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons appeared first on Covenant United Reformed Church.

    Is Idolatry Only False Worship? (LD 34; Ephesians 5:5) | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

    18/01/2010

    If we were asked about idolatry we probably would say that it is worshipping a god other than the Christian God. There is no doubt that this is true. However, is there more to this commandment against idolatry? The apostle Paul states that a covetous person is an idolator. How can this be the case? […] The post Is Idolatry Only False Worship?
