Richard Owen's Sermons

Richard Owen | Sunday July 12, 2020 | Wake Up

Perhaps we are meant to be experiencing the things we are experiencing. We might ask of this is the right time, but Joseph was faithful in the here and now - as a slave, as a prisoner and as a leader in Egypt. God is with us in all our circumstances.

His Grace is Sufficient

2 Corinthians 12:6-10

Richard Owen | Sunday June 21, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

Jesus doesn’t ensure that bad things don’t happen but that they don’t separate us from the love of God. God’s plan for us is not that we don’t face danger but that we depend on his grace.

Richard Owen | Sunday June 7, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

There are some things we have to wait for, but there are other we don’t have to wait for. We can celebrate what God has already done. We already have total forgiveness, ongoing transformation and a new identity and relationship with God.

Richard Owen | Sunday May 3, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

Richard Owen | Sunday April 5, 2020 | What's so amazing about grace?

The problem is that we are not basically good people who sometimes do wrong things but that we are utterly rebellious against God and deserve to die. The price paid was Jesus, who took upon himself all our sin and died on the cross. Our response is to praise God.

Dealing with Division

1 Corinthians 1:10-17

Richard Owen | Sunday January 12, 2020 | 1 Corinthians

Paul desired to see the church holy and united, but there was a problem of division in the church at Corinth. Paul’s response is to appeal to them in the name of Christ, to encourage them to fix their eyes on Jesus, and to draw their attention to the Cross and to the one who died for us.

Dealing with Fear

Genesis 42:1-34

Richard Owen | Sunday July 7, 2019 | Joseph

Jacob is paralysed with fear, which prevents him from walking in faith and leads to him blaming others. If we don’t recognise Jesus then we too will be trapped in fear - it is Jesus who drives out fear.

Richard Owen | Sunday June 2, 2019 | Joseph
