Sermons on Isaiah

What’s the best use of my time?

Isaiah 49:8-13 We have many competing demands on our time. In his previous talk, Richard urged us to prioritise carefully and say ‘no’ to good things for the sake of the best. But what are the best ways to use our time? What must we prioritise? Listen in as Isaiah shows us how God would have us live.

Isaiah: Vol 10: 2 of 3: The Choice

Isaiah 65 What should I wear today? What should I eat for dinner? Should I look for a new job? Where should we move to? Life is full of choices.

R.S.V.P: 3 OF 3: Depart!

Isaiah 52:1-12Whether it’s with reference to the NHS in Wales or to Europe in the light of the Greek crisis, recent headlines have warned against “sleepwalking into disaster”.

Isaiah 55:6-13When you sign up for something online, there are always ‘Terms and conditions’ which apply. But according to research by one investment company, only 7% of Britons actually read them. With God’s offer in the gospel we cannot afford to be so lax. Far too much is at stake.

R.S.V.P: 1 OF 3: Come!

Isaiah 55:1-5In the course of our lives we may receive many different invitations – to parties, to weddings, to marry someone, to take a new job, to subscribe to Horse & Hounds…But the greatest invitation of all is God’s offer of abundant life in his kingdom. What makes it so special, and what response does he call us to?
