Dan Maton | Sunday February 6, 2022 | John

If we are thirsty, the first thing to do is to come to Jesus, and the second thing to do is to drink. We should be doing this on a daily basis. Jesus is the only source of life and vitality.

Dan Maton | Sunday January 30, 2022 | John

The world hates Jesus, and in the same way it hates us, his followers. We can’t wait for the world to start loving Jesus before we step out in faith.

Dan Maton | Sunday January 2, 2022 | John

Those who saw Jesus’ signs went and told others about him and who he might be. Jesus is full of compassion and utterly courageous. When it comes to following Jesus we should not be cautious but utterly courageous.

Dan Maton | Sunday November 28, 2021 | John

We can trust that God can heal supernaturally, but we shouldn’t rest our hope on this as he doesn’t always heal. Jesus doesn’t want to satisfy our desire to see miracles for their own sake. But we can always take Jesus at his word.

Dan Maton | Sunday November 7, 2021 | John

Jesus won’t fit into Nicodemus’ existing system as a Pharisee - instead, he tells Nicodemus that he needs a new start. Nicodemus may have had just one conversation with Jesus yet he became a disciple. What can God do with just one conversation?

Introducing Jesus

John 1:1-18

Dan Maton | Sunday October 10, 2021 | John

John’s prologue is like a movie trailer. John is setting the scene, beginning with the fact that Jesus is God. He introduces characters, starting with John the Baptist, whose aim was to glorify Jesus.

Dan Maton | Sunday September 19, 2021 | Miscellaneous

God initiated and accomplished salvation all by himself. How persuaded are we that the gospel is true? Can people encounter God through City Church Sheffield?

Dan Maton | Sunday August 22, 2021 | Miscellaneous

It is good to praise the Lord - it benefits us and causes us to flourish, as it is what we are designed for. Praising God gladdens the heart and stretches the mind. It is good to consider what God has done.

Dan Maton | Sunday July 25, 2021 | Abraham

Abraham mourned the death of Sarah. It is appropriate to grieve. Like Abraham and Sarah, we are aliens in the world who do not really belong anywhere. We are citizens of heaven - it is important to remember where we’re from and where we’re headed.

Dan Maton | Sunday May 30, 2021 | Abraham

We might be shocked at what the men of Sodom wanted to do and what Lot suggested doing and even what God is prepared to do. But we should take this passage as a warning and example of what God will do when he ultimately destroys the wicked. There are different ways of responding - like Lot’s sons-in-law, who saw judgement as a joke, or like Lot, who hesitated when urged to escape, or like Lot’s wife, who looks back. We have a chance to repent and escape judgment, but that this opportunity will end.

Dan Maton | Sunday May 2, 2021 | Abraham

Abraham and Sarah got tired of waiting for God’s promise to be fulfilled and tried to take control. They began to focus on themselves, they stopped caring for others, such as Hagar. But God cared for her, and unlike Abraham and Sarah, calls her by her name.

Dan Maton | Sunday March 28, 2021 | Abraham

How do we get back on track with God? By repenting and putting God first, by being willing to make hard decisions rather than drifting when we meet with challenges and by walking by faith like Abraham, rather than walking by sight like Lot.

The Call of Abraham

Genesis 12:1-9

Dan Maton | Sunday March 7, 2021 | Abraham

Abraham didn’t make the decision to move; it was God who took the initiative. Abraham was nobody special and was slow to obey God. Nevertheless, he trusted God, and we also should trust God even when we don’t understand what God is doing. So let’s follow Abraham’s example of a life a faith, a life of obedience and life of worship.

Dan Maton | Sunday February 14, 2021 | Miscellaneous

We need to learn how to lament. We can do this by using our own words or by using some of the lament psalms that have been given us to help us pray. We need to make a deliberate decision to turn to the Lord, bring our complaint to him, make definite clear requests, and choose to trust him.

Restoring Others

James 5:19-20

Dan Maton | Sunday January 31, 2021 | James

God delights in restoring those who have wandered away. We should be a people of real concern, who care for those wandering from the truth; a people of real discretion in confronting them; and a people of real zeal for bringing them back.

Dan Maton | Sunday January 10, 2021 | James

Some of us may have been excluded for being Christians, whilst others may have experienced more intense suffering. James calls us to be patient, but he is not insensitive to suffering, nor is he telling us to be inactive. To cope with suffering, we need to learn how to lament. Our ultimate hope is the return of Jesus.
