Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote: “To live without hope is to cease to live.” As human beings we need hope, and yet so often what we end up placing our hope in disappoints us and lets us down. In a world filled with politicians, products, and people that don’t live up to the promises they make to us. In a time where the hope of perpetual progress seems to have been dashed; where can we find the hope we need? In Romans 15:1-13 Paul shows us...

As we near the close of the book of Acts Paul is in Jerusalem defending himself once again, this time to King Agrippa. In giving his defense he boldly stands before Agrippa and shares his testimony. He shares his life before Christ, his credentials as a Pharisee and his own disbelief of Jesus and his participation in the church’s persecution. Then he shares his conversion, his encounter with the risen Jesus and how that encounter c...

As Paul says a tearful goodbye to the elders of the church in Ephesus we see two things about his ministry and calling. First, we see that wherever God placed Paul for however long He placed him there Paul was fully present and invested. His life, lived out daily, gave testimony to the message he proclaimed. The second thing we see is that Paul didn’t hesitate to go when God had a new assignment for him, even when that assignment w...

Paul’s engagement with the people of Athens gives us some very helpful principles for how to engage people with the gospel. One of the key skills we need to learn if we are going to be effective witnesses for Christ is that we have to meet people where they are. Paul contextualized his message to the people he was dealing with and the questions they were asking. In Acts 17:2 we see Paul addressing Jews by appealing to scripture. He...

It’s one thing to confess that salvation comes through Christ alone, but it’s another to truly believe it and live it out. With Gentiles now being included into what had previously been a Jewish-only church the idea that Jesus alone saves began to be put to the test. What about circumcision? What about the Jewish dietary laws? Doesn’t being a Christian also require one to follow the law of Moses? Even today it can be a struggle for...

These two chapters mark a pivotal moment in the history of the church. Here God makes it clear to Peter and through Peter to the rest of the church community that the gospel is not just good news for Jews, it is good news for gentiles as well. In fact what we see throughout the pages of the New Testament is that when it comes to the gospel barriers and partitions that divide and exclude are broken down and destroyed. As Paul says i...

If you were a member of the early Christian community the last person in the world you would have expected to become a key individual in God’s plan to grow and expand His church would have been Saul or Tarsus. In Acts 8:3 Luke describes Saul as “ravaging the church” going from house to house dragging off men and women who were Christians and sending them to prison, yet by the time we come to Acts 9:20 that same Saul is “proclaiming...

As the church grew it’s systems and structures needed to grow as well to make sure that the mission of the church could continue to move forward. This meant the identifying and installation of new leaders. These leaders were chosen first and foremost based on their character and faith, but also based on the changing needs and nature of the growing community. If we are going to be a multiplying church we also need to be a church tha...

In Today's Episode of Rewind Podcast, we dive deeper into the past sermon titled: Good News That Annoys" from the SENT Series. In Acts 4:2 Luke writes that the Sadducees were “greatly annoyed” with Peter and John “because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.” When we function as Christ’s witnesses in this world, sooner or later (and likely sooner rather than later), we will ...

When Christ gave the mission of being His witnesses to the world it was accompanied by a promise: “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.” In chapter 2 of Acts we see the promise of Jesus fulfilled on the day of Pentecost. It was on that day that the church was born. Without the person of the Holy Spirit there is no power in the church, we have no ability to accomplish the mission God has tasked us with, but wi...

In the book of Acts, Luke continues his writing to Theophilus, moving from an account of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus to an account of the birth of the church and its growth from a group of 120 Jewish followers of Jesus in Jerusalem to a multi-racial movement that spread across the entire Roman world. A movement rooted in a mission given by Jesus to His followers just before He ascended to heaven: “you will be my witne...

In today's episode of Rewind, we dive a little deeper into the past sermon titled "Filtered: The Praise Filter". We might also think of this filter as the thankfulness filter. This filter is quite similar to the Honour filter, except that the object here is God rather than people. Are we a people that are constantly in awe of God and all that He has done for us? Are we focused on the beauty of the grace He has shown to ...

Purity, in our culture, can seem like an old-fashion and outdated notion but God calls us to be people who are concerned with purity. In Matthew 5:8, Jesus says that the pure in heart will be blessed because they will see God. In Colossians 3:5, Paul commands us to put to death impurity including sexual immorality, evil desire, and covetousness. As the people of God, we need to make sure that the things we are watching, listening t...

In today's episode of Rewind Podcast, we look into the past sermon titled "The Justice Filter." Have you ever noticed how easy it is to focus on the things that happen to us that seem unfair? Unjust? Many people get trapped in a prison of bitterness, anger, and unforgiveness because they can’t let go of injustice. Instead of focusing on slights and injustices God calls us to focus on what is just. This means both focusi...

On this episode of Rewind, we look into the past Sunday's sermon at both Cambridge and Kitchener titled, "The Honour Filter" from our Filtered Series. Have you ever noticed how quick we are to criticize and tear down and how slow many of us are to encourage and honour others? God wants His people to be people who are focused on looking for the things in others, that are commendable and worthy of honour. He wants us to b...

On this episode of Rewind Podcast, we go deeper into Sunday's sermon titled "The Truth Filter", a new 5 week series named FILTERED. Pas. Kirk and Pas. Darryl share their thoughts on the sermons at Cambridge and Kitchener. We live in a world where it can feel impossible to determine what is true. As Christians, we determine truth by starting with Scripture. Jesus reminds us in John 17:17 that, God’s word is true and in J...

On this episode of Rewind, we look a little deeper into the last sermon from the Exodus Series as Pas Greg dives deeper into the sermon titled "When God Draws Near." Exodus culminates with the tabernacle being erected and the glory of the Lord descending upon it. God has taken up residence with His people. And Who are the people among whom God is present and to whom God reveals His glory? In Exodus 40, they were the people ...

On this episode of Rewind, we look a little deeper into the preachers' notes as Pas. Derik and Pas. Darryl dive deeper into the past sermon titled "Generous Hands and Hearts." God is honoured and worshipped through our generosity. In Exodus 35, the people of God responded out of hearts of generosity bringing their gold, silver, bronze, onyx, precious jewels, acacia wood, fine linens and all the other materials needed to...

As we hit episode 126 of our Rewind Podcast, we are few weeks away from end of the Exodus series where we explore deeper into the last Sunday's sermon titled "The God of Glory and Grace" with Pas. Derik Fuller (lead pastor of Forward Cambridge) and Pas Darryl Siemens (site pastor at Forward Kitchener). Here, we see the fundamental dilemma we face as human beings. God is holy, and because of His Holiness, we cannot enter...
