The following sermon was preached by Rev. Calum I. Macleod at the Wednesday night prayer meeting on the 1st of July, 2009. The Lord’s promise; “I am with you alway”, doesn’t mean that we are always aware or conscious that He is with us. When The Lord was asleep in the boat during a storm on the Sea of Galilee; the disciples ran to wake Him up saying, “Master, carest thou not that we perish?” He was there with them all along but they had given way to unbelief. This sermon is an exposition of this wonderful promise. We may not always feel the sunshine of The Lord’s prescence but we rest upon His word; knowing that even when we pass through the valley of the shadow of death no one else can come along with us but He will be there.
The text is Mat 28:20… Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
The following sermon was preached by Rev. David Fraser, Minister of Shettleston, at the Saturday Evening Communion, preparatory service, 27th of June, 2009. The old Apostolic Creed says that “He descended into hell”. What is meant by this phrase? This awesome message looks at the events that preceded the sufferings of Our Lord on the cross. Christ was alone as He faced the evil powers of wickedness but a woman (who will be remembered forever) anointed The Saviour with very precious ointment and only with hindsight would the disciples look back and see the beautiful meaning of her costly sacrifice.
The text is Matt26:…Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
