SERMON: Where there is Death there is Hope! (John 11:1-45)

lazarus_resI wonder this morning if there are grave-clothes of yesterday that need to be removed in your own life, dear friend. You are a baptised, born-again child of God, but perhaps there are still remnants of the past that need to be dealt with.

You try to move forward, but the devil, who is the accuser keeps pointing to the grave-clothes. He uses whatever he can: other people,your circumstances, even your own memories,to try and convince you you are worthless and have nothing to offer, because you messed up yesterday.Child of God, on behalf of our Saviour Who died for your freedom could I speak deliverance in your life.Could I declare right here and now that you are set free by the precious blood of Jesus! In your life, may every chain be broken; every shackle be removed, every lying and accusing voice of the devil be silenced in the name of Jesus!May you walk forward in the life and the freedom which Christ has called you into.

Listen along (by clicking player below) as we consider this question, and the various opinions held concerning the Christ (I preached this sermon at St John’s Lutheran Church on Sunday 28th February 2016). God bless you!



Hi. My Name is Wayne. If I were to introduce myself by what I have done, work-wise, I would have to introduce myself as a Preacher, a Pastor, a Family & Community Worker, a Student, an Air Traffic Controller, a Post Office Counter Assistant, a Mail Sorter, a Unit Trust Administration Officer, a Butchery Delivery Driver, a Teacher. These are some of the various positions I have held to-date over my lifetime. The periods I have occupied these roles for range from a few hours to a few years. More important than introducing myself by what I do (or have done), allow me rather to introduce myself by who I am. I am a Born Again Christian (who treasures his Lord), a Husband (who treasures his wife), a Dad (who treasures his sons) and a Minister of the Gospel (who treasures the Word of God). I pray that whatever is posted on this site will serve to bless and encourage you.

    Thank you Pastor Wayne, for another excellent sermon. Last Sunday we were on our way home from New Zealand, so we missed our Sunday Service, this is very timely for us. Thank you for putting it on Face Book. May God Bless you and your Family and the work you are doing
