Dan Maton's Sermons

Dan Maton | Sunday September 13, 2020 | James

We are to respond to the trials of life by pursuing wisdom. This comes from God, who is wise beyond measure. We should be eager to pray to God, asking him for wisdom, knowing that he is eager to give it.

Dan Maton | Sunday September 6, 2020 | James

How do we respond to the trials of life? We are to respond with joy, not because the trials are enjoyable in themselves but because we recognise what God is doing through them. Let’s allow perseverance to finish its work.

Another Wake Up Call!

Matthew 25:1-13

Dan Maton | Sunday August 16, 2020 | Wake Up

We are reminded of the importance of being spiritually awake and alert. There has been a long wait for Jesus to return, and we need to be careful how we handle this wait - the reason for the delay is so that everybody can hear the gospel. We need to be prepared - we can’t rely on the spirituality or prayerfulness of others.

Wake Up

Revelation 3:1-6

Dan Maton | Sunday June 28, 2020 | Wake Up

Perhaps we need a wake-up call. A church can fall asleep by lying down (assuming a low profile), getting comfy (living for pleasure), and staying still (not acting on what we hear). A church can make sure it’s woken up by standing up (making it clear we’re with Jesus), getting dressed (getting rid of sin) and having breakfast (being sustained by God’s Word, not our own will-power). It is worth waking up because we get the opportunity to walk with Jesus and will be honoured by Jesus before the Father.

Supernatural Generosity

2 Corinthians 8:1-15

Dan Maton | Sunday June 14, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

We should consider supernatural generosity, and not believe the myths that having more money makes it easier to give, that I don’t have the gift of generosity, that giving should always be spontaneous and that we should give without expecting something in return.

Dan Maton | Sunday May 31, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

Being a shepherd is not glamorous or prestigious, but it’s what God calls leaders to be. Jesus left his disciples an example, by washing their feet. We should submit to right authority - not unquestionable obedience to dictatorial decrees.

Not Missing God's Grace

Hebrews 12:14-15

Dan Maton | Sunday May 17, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

God’s grace is secure, but we need to make sure we respond well. We must make sure we’ve truly received his grace, that we practice it by living it out, and that we look forward and anticipate its harvest.

Finding Grace

Hebrews 4:16

Dan Maton | Sunday May 10, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

We can have confidence in approaching God because he is on the throne, because Christ has opened the way, and because knows what it is like to be human. We approach God by praying, whether we feel like it or not, focusing on him, remembering that he knows best, and not worrying about the length of our prayers.

Dan Maton | Sunday April 19, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

We have been justified by faith. This is a done deal, and three facts follow from this: We have peace with God (not just a feeling, but reconciliation); we stand in grace (we are not just saved by grace but we live by grace); and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.

Dan Maton | Sunday March 29, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

Peter wants to remind us of our secure position in Christ, from which we need never fall so long as we continue to trust in him. He also urges us to grow in grace, which we can do by focusing on Jesus and fixing our thoughts on him, by making a list of everything he has done in our lives and thanking him for it, by seeing suffering and hardship as an opportunity to depend on God, and by talking to God about everything on good days and bad days.

Being Inseparable

Acts 2:42-47

Dan Maton | Sunday March 22, 2020 | Miscellaneous

We are inseparable from Jesus, and we devote ourselves to him by devoting ourselves to the Scriptures, sharing with one another, breaking bread to remember the death of Jesus, and prayer.

Dan Maton | Sunday March 15, 2020 | 1 Corinthians

The church is urged to have a unity that derives first of all from a right understanding of the cross. The cross shows us that Spiritual leadership doesn’t involve being at the top of a pyramid but at the bottom. Leaders are the servants of Christ, the stewards of the mysteries of God, the scum of the earth, and father-like.

Dan Maton | Sunday February 23, 2020 | Miscellaneous

There was a real and serious problem in the church where vulnerable people were going hungry. The leaders recognise the problem, but they also recognise their own limitations, so they delegate responsibly to others.

The Spirit and the Word

1 Corinthians 2

Dan Maton | Sunday February 2, 2020 | 1 Corinthians

The truth of Paul’s message was revealed to the Corinthians by the Holy Spirit. Salvation is revealed by the Word and the Spirit. The Holy Spirit knows, reveals, inspires and illuminates.

God's Power Works Through Weakness

1 Corinthians 1:17-2:5

Dan Maton | Sunday January 19, 2020 | 1 Corinthians

God’s power works through weakness - he work in weak people with a weak message preached by weak messengers. Hence we should boast in God, not in ourselves. We should think of our time of worship as a time of boasting in God.

God Calls Us

1 Corinthians 1:1-9

Dan Maton | Sunday January 5, 2020 | 1 Corinthians

God calls people. He calls us to a purpose. We are also called to belong, we are called to be saints, and we are called to fellowship.

Dan Maton | Sunday December 29, 2019 | It's all about Jesus

Great darkness covered the land when Jesus was born. Herod was an example of this. The religious people, who knew the Bible, made no effort to search for the Messiah. We must not fix our eyes on the evil that surrounds us, but on Jesus.

Joseph was a righteous man. He knows what Leviticus and Deuteronomy say about adultery and divorce, but he decides not to humiliate Mary. He was not asking for God to speak to him in a dream, but God gives him a dream anyway.

Mary receives promises relating to God’s favour, God’s presence, God’s mission and God’s empowering. She is greatly troubled, she is puzzled, but she submits to God’s will.

Just as a power tool can do nothing without electricity but a lot with it, so we can do nothing without Jesus but so long as we remain in him we can bear much fruit. He chose us, and all we have to do is to remain in him and allow him to prune us.
