Agape Love

Pastor Jeff Knott of Grace Church in Port Hope, Ontario continues the sermon series on Psalm 23 “Life Without Lack” with “Agape Love”: What anchors our lives is faith in God no matter what the need. Along with faith, death to self makes us willing vessels and open receptacles. With these two gifts, God is free to pour into our lives His life-giving love, something the Bible calls agape love. If you think about these three – faith, death to…

Death to Self

Pastor Jeff Knott of Grace Church in Port Hope, Ontario continues the sermon series on Psalm 23 “Life Without Lack” with “Death to Self”: Bonhoeffer, “When Christ calls a man, He bids him come and die.” Death to self does not mean death of self. Each human being is valuable in God’s eyes. Self-denial is not self-hatred. The Bible tells us to love our neighbour as ourselves – there’s some self-love there. None of this teaching about death to self…

The Faith of Sufficiency

Pastor Jeff Knott of Grace Church in Port Hope, Ontario continues the Sermon Series on “Life Without Lack” on Psalm 23 with “The Faith of Sufficiency”: Every week seems to be filled with challenges to the belief that God is all-sufficient.

There are three interrelated but separate realities that need to be…

Why Such Lack?

Pastor Jeff Knott of Grace Church in Port Hope, Ontario continues the sermon series on “Life without Lack” on Psalm 23 with “Why Such Lack?”: Life without lack happens when we really know who the Shepherd is, how good He is and how capable He is of caring for us.

Why We’re Here

Pastor Jeff Knott of Grace Church in Port Hope, Ontario continues the sermon series “Life Without Lack” with “Why We’re Here”: Jesus is the only One who has fully lived Psalm 23. He is our guide; He is our example; He is the One we follow. Who is our Shepherd? What’s He like? Can we trust Him? Yes we can! Why does He want to be our Shepherd? What makes us so valuable? God’s reason for creating us is that…

Our Magnificent God

Pastor Jeff Knott of Grace Church in Port Hope, Ontario continues the Sermon Series “Life Without Lack” with “Our Magnificent God”: Dallas Willard, “Wherever your mind goes, the rest of your life goes with it.” A mind is a terrible thing when it’s set on the wrong thing.

Deep Roots, Wild Branches – Part 3

Pastor Jeff Knott of Grace Church in Port Hope, Ontario completes the mini-series on Deep Roots, Wild Branches – Part 3: The church has been in maintenance mode a long time, maintaining this inherited way of doing church.

It’s the mission of making disciples who make disciples, sharing God’s love, inviting people…

Deep Roots, Wild Branches – Part 2

Pastor Jeff Knott of Grace Church in Port Hope, Ontario speaks in Part Two of “Deep Roots, Wild Branches”: An entire generation has grown up within Canada and they do not know the Lord.

We are…
