The following sermon was preached by Rev. Calum I. Macleod on the Sabbath Evening, 3rd of January, 2010.
The text is Acts 24:22-27…And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of that way, he deferred them, and said, When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter. And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let him have liberty, and that he should forbid none of his acquaintance to minister or come unto him. And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee. He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him. But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

The following sermon was preached by Rev. Calum I. Macleod on the Sabbath Evening 25th October 2009. A sermon under three headings: A word of condemnation; A word of revelation; A word of invitation. Do you believe that you have a right to decide whether or not to obey Jesus? The truth is that Christ demands a response from you. Christ pronounced Woes upon the cities that did not repent at his coming. The Gospel was foolishness to them, it was hidden from the eyes of these worldly-wise, Christ-rejectors but it was revealed unto babes; to the lowly in heart and those who were troubled by the burden of their own sin. Dear friend, do you labour under the condemning weight of your guilt before a holy God? If you know that you are a sinner, Christ invites you to come to Him. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
The text is Matthew 11:26…Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
