Sermons by Pastor Brendan Fischer

A Saviour Is Born

Exodus 2:1-10 — The circumstances surrounding the birth and first few years of Moses’ life are truly remarkable. In this sermon Pastor Brendan unfolds them to us in vivid detail and then directs us to the bigger story and that is, the operation of Divine Providence.

A Call To Build

Nehemiah 2:9-20 — After a lengthy and difficult journey from Sushan, Nehemiah arrived at Jerusalem. It was perhaps the first time he had seen the city and sadly, it was in a terrible condition. With a small group of men he surveyed the ruined walls by night and began to plan the rebuilding work. He then…

Achieving Great Things For God

Nehemiah 2:1-8 — In this text we come to the most critical point in the narrative of the Book. It was against the custom of the Persian court to appear sad in the king’s presence, but this is exactly what Nehemiah did! How did King Artaxerxes respond? What did Nehemiah say when he was questioned? Did…

Powerful Prayers

Nehemiah 1:4-11 — When Nehemiah learned what life was like for those who’d returned to Jerusalem his first response was to pray.

Lessons In Suffering

Exodus 1:6-14 — After centuries in Egypt circumstances changed dramatically for the Children of Israel. A new Pharaoh decided to turn on this group of people that had grown rapidly. He made them slaves and subjected to them to a regime of terrible violence and brutality. These were God’s chosen people, so why did He allow…

The Sin Account Is Settled

Psalm 130:3-4 — “If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?…” What if God noted down our sins and never remitted them? What if they continued to pile up over the years? How could any of us stand before Him on the Day of Judgment? This is a fearful thought and it does us…

Lessons From A Farewell

Philippians 4:21-23 — The closing section of Paul’s letters often contain personal references and concerns that seem to have little relevance to us, but as we look a little closer, we discover some wonderful truths that encourage our hearts. So it is with the closing to Paul’s letter to the Philippians. As we consider the final…
