SERMON TOPIC: Unconditional love

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 13 January 2019

Topic Groups: LOVE

Sermon synopsis: 1 John 3:16-18 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

SERMON TOPIC: God so loved the world - Part 2

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 25 February 2018

Topic Groups: JOHN 3v16, LOVE, SALVATION

Sermon synopsis: The chorus of the hymn, “The Love of God” goes:

O Love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints and angels song.

When the author F.M. Lehman (1868-1953) tried to write a third verse to the song, the words just wouldn’t fall into place. He then thought of a card he had once received that had on it a poem about the love of God. He searched for the card and soon found it. Lehman read the words on the card and his heart was just as thrilled with the poem as the first time he read it. He began to voice the words of the poem with the melody he had composed for his song. They fit perfectly and he knew he had his third verse to his song.

Lehman noticed at the bottom of the card some smaller but heavier printing. It told the story of the origin of the poem. It was found written on a prison wall some 200 years earlier. It wasn’t known why the prisoner was incarcerated; nor if the words were original or if he had heard them elsewhere. Whatever the circumstances, he had written them on the wall of his prison cell. That third stanza goes:

Could we with ink the ocean fill
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry,
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Sermon synopsis: A message for Valentine's Day.

Arise, my darling, My beautiful one, Come with me.
See! The winter is past; The rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; The season of singing has come, The cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; The blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; My beautiful one, Come with me.

(Song of Solomon 1:10-13)


Ken-Paynter/Death-to-self.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Death to self

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 10 January 2016

Topic Groups: COMMITMENT, DISCIPLESHIP, LOVE

Sermon synopsis: Jesus said there are two great commandments, one of which is to 'love your neighbour as yourself' (Matt 22:34-40). But if we say we can't love others until we love ourselves, we are essentially saying Jesus gave us a third commandment. 

In fact, without realizing it, we are suggesting that to love yourself is the second greatest commandment, for we are saying it comes before the commandment to serve others. We are saying that loving ourselves is a precondition to loving other people.

Phil 2:2-4 Make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

JOY: Jesus first, Yourself last and Others in-between...


Ken-Paynter/The-love-of-God.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: The love of God

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 3 April 2015

Topic Groups: LOVE OF GOD, LOVE

Sermon synopsis: 1 John 4:16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 
And so we know.. The love God has for us.

Do you know God’s love?

Ephesians 3:16-19 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Paul does not pray that we would understand God’s love, because it surpasses knowledge, but that we would know it.

SERMON TOPIC: Love

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 2 February 2014

Topic Groups: LONG-SUFFERING, LOVE, PERSEVERANCE

Sermon synopsis: In one of the most powerful and poetic chapters of the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13, the apostle Paul describes the sort of love Christians are meant to embody:
'Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.'

Longsuffering heads the list, and I think that's significant because to love freely and consistently in the other ways Paul names requires a readiness to go the distance. We can't reserve our love for certain situations or special people, and we can't withdraw it when people disappoint or fail. Longsuffering is both a prerequisite and the bottom line.

Language: ENGLISH

Sermon synopsis: Have you been perfected in love?

2 Cor 11:3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. [NKJV]

Eph 4:21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:

[NKJV]

We need to be childlike, but not childish.

Jer 4: 22 'My people are fools; they do not know me. They are senseless children; they have no understanding. They are skilled in doing evil; they know not how to do good.' [NIV]




Gavin-Paynter/20091018_Racism-Darwin-Hitler-and-the-Bible.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Racism, Darwinism, Nazism, Apartheid and the Bible

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 18 October 2009

Topic Groups: RACISM, CREATIONISM, LOVE

Sermon synopsis: In summary, we will see that if you are a racist - you can call yourself a Nazi or neo-Nazi, a white supremacist, a proponent of apartheid, a Klu Klux Klan follower, a Darwinian evolutionist if you prefer - but you cannot legitimately call yourself a Christian.

Is racial inter-marriage a sin? Will heaven be segregated? How should we treat aliens?

Is racism defensible genetically, morally and Biblically? What was the mark of Cain and the curse of Ham (Canaan) that racists in their ignorance use to support their prejudices?

Did Charles Darwin believe Blacks and Aborigines were on the same level as gorillas? How did the early proponents of the theory of Evolution justify their blatant racism?

How did Hitler and the Nazis use the theory of evolution to support their belief of the superiority of certain races and ultimately to justify the genocide of 6 million Jews -besides their euthanasia program which entailed murdering the aged, retarded and disabled.

What can we learn from the prototype Christian church of Antioch in this regard? What lessons can we learn from the life of Nicholas Bhengu and the early A/G in SA?

What does the Bible mean when it says we must love our neighbour? Who is my neighbour? Are you fulfilling the command to love your brother?

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 21 February 1999

Topic Groups: JOY, LOVE

Sermon synopsis: John 15:9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
