Easter Sermon: Jesus – The Champion of the World

I had the pleasure of preaching on Easter Sunday at all three services at St Luke’s this year. The title was “Jesus – the Champion of the World”. I used Revelation 1:9-18 as the base of my sermon.

Listen to the sermon after the jump.

Sermon: The Great Commission

What do you do after Easter? Jesus has risen from the dead. Now what?

I gave this sermon at St Luke’s Liverpool the week after Easter. Matthew 28 is often used to tell people to go out and evangelise. Which is good and true. But there’s so much more going on in this passage.

Wonderella and The Point of Easter

The Non-Adventures of Wonderella is a wonderfully bizarre webcomic. The title character is a super hero who really couldn’t care less about saving people and is more interested in what’s happening on TV that night. The strip starts off in one place and by the time you reach the end of the page, you’re somewhere completely different.

Over Easter, Wonderella took on the Easter bunny. Her sidekick, Rita, asks what’s the point of Easter. Wonderella replies “Nobody knows.”

Oooh, oooh, I know, I know!

Just How Sinful Were Your Prices?

For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.” 1 Peter 3:18

Let me check that again. Christ died so that I could be in a relationship with God. Does it mention supermarket prices anywhere? Did Christ die for consumer gain? Nope, didn’t think so.

Bad form Safeway. Bad form.

Chocolate Crucifix

I don’t really understand why we have chocolate eggs at Easter. Chocolate crucifixes would make more sense, but be very, very wrong.
