Making Maturing Disciples of Christ | Week 9 | Darrell finishes this series in John 10, using the imagery of the shepherd and his intimate relationship with his sheep. He then invites us to see that although Jesus is not physically present, He is still with us and continues to speak to us and encourages his audience that it is possible to hear Jesus’ voice. Darrell concludes his message by identifying the means Jesus uses to communicate to His people and providing guidance on how to confidently discern Jesus’ voice amid all the lies, noise, and misleading voices vying for our attention and affection.

Self Under Control: The Miracle of Grace
Self Under Control: The Miracle of Grace
Making Maturing Disciples of Christ | Week 8 | This week, Darrell dives deep into Apostle Paul’s exhortation in Galatians 5:16-18 to walk by the Spirit and how doing so means you won’t carry out the desires of the flesh. Walking by the Spirit means putting Jesus at the center of our lives and living our lives for Him and with Him. It is only through walking by the Spirit that we develop the fruits of Spirit and become more like Jesus. This act does not come naturally to us, so we must learn to be ruthless towards our sinful desires and work together with the Holy Spirit to put it to death. This is done through developing a rhythm of abstinence from the things of this world and taking time to engage with the Holy Spirit through spiritual practices.

A New Life and a New Way to Live It (Part 1)
A New Life and a New Way to Live It (Part 1)
Making Maturing Disciples of Christ | Week 6 | “Walk by the Spirit,” writes the apostle Paul in his letter to the Galatians, urging followers of Jesus to surrender to the new way of Christ so that the old way– the way of the flesh– is put to death. In this message, Darrell explores this text that gets at the heart of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Our flesh, with all its warped desires, self-centredness, and earthly drives, resists the Spirit, but the Spirit has power to overcome the flesh and to form in us the very character traits of Christ. As we continue to walk by the Spirit, the Spirit bears fruit in our lives, displaying the life of Jesus in us, showing us to be His disciples.  First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC | June 9, 2013 | Galatians 5:16 The Bible Course by the Canadian Bible Society | www.biblesociety.ca/thebiblecourse/ Mailing List | www.darrelljohnson.ca/#subscribe-form Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

The Stunning Proclamation of Christmas
The Stunning Proclamation of Christmas
This message is from the Christmas Eve of 2016, and here Darrell preaches from Luke 2:10-12. The big idea Darrell drives home is the Christmas story is about more than a baby being born, but a new leader being born. Jesus Christ, the one who would form a new government that will truly administer justice, make peace and heal the hearts of people. And the big question we all have to answer in response to this great birth is “Where is this baby, this new leader, wanting to lead me?” First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC | December 24, 2016 | Luke 2:10-12 Mailing List | www.darrelljohnson.ca/#subscribe-form Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

Living Sacrifices Alive in God’s High Calling
Living Sacrifices Alive in God’s High Calling
Making Maturing Disciples of Christ | Week 5 | This week, Darrell speaks on Paul's letter to the Romans and how we are meant to be a living sacrifice to God. Jesus’ disciples didn't choose him, he was the one who chose the disciples, it was him who initiated and anointed them. Because Jesus chooses us, we must be a living sacrifice to the living God since the only thing we have to offer is our life to God. When we encounter this calling, it often comes with six factors that inform us on God's calling for us and how to best serve the Lord as a living sacrifice. Darrell breaks down these factors and what they might look like so that when they happen, we are encouraged to respond in obedience.

Growing Up In A Spirit-Animated Community
Growing Up In A Spirit-Animated Community
Making Maturing Disciples of Christ | Week 4 | It is a privilege to be a follower of Jesus, but the real question is, what does it take to grow up as a follower of Jesus? In Acts 2:37-47 Luke shows us the fellowship that developed amongst the crowd after the day of Pentecost and what they devoted themselves to. In this message, Darrell takes it a step further by breaking down the importance of their devotion and how it correlates to a fellowship with the triune God. A spirit-animated community that spends time in the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer.

The Renewing of the Mind
The Renewing of the Mind
Making Maturing Disciples of Christ | Week 3 | Darrell invites us to do an exercise of renewing the mind by putting on three different lenses — western, eastern, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. We see different realities through these three sets of lenses. As Jesus called us to come, and follow him, we are invited to put on the gospel glasses every day, in every situation. Through this set of glasses, we see a Person in the center of reality. A living Person — Crucified and Risen, offering us Himself, making all things new. Through the gospel glasses, the rest of reality also comes into focus. We see that our lives have meaning - that each one of us has been uniquely gifted to participate in the life of God and His mission in the world.

Hard-Wired for Participation
Making Maturing Disciples of Christ | Week 2 | As we listen to the words of the Apostle Paul in Romans 12:1-8, we hear about the unspeakable privilege that Jesus is giving us, to come, participate in serving the world through his Body. Darrell Johnson uses the term “hard-wired” to express and live-out a participation in the life of the Triune God. Each of us has been graced to participate in a unique way. We in the Body of Christ cannot operate alone, we must work together. Darrell unpacks the seven gifts or “wirings” in a practical, helpful way, encouraging us to exercise our gifts as an expression of one of the key functions of a maturing  disciple of Jesus Christ.

Learning to Function in the “Real World”
Learning to Function in the “Real World”
Making Maturing Disciples of Christ | Week 1 | In this introductory message to a series on discipleship, Darrell cracks open the question of how a follower of Jesus Christ is meant to function in the real world. At the heart of this ‘real world’ is the audacious truth that “all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to [Jesus].” To truly live in this Real World as His disciple is an ongoing, intentional formation process by which we learn to know as Jesus knows, believe as Jesus believes, and trust as Jesus trusts. As we stay connected to Jesus through His Word, through prayer, community, service, and other practices that help us spiritually grow, we mature as His disciples and become more and more like the One we follow.

Ephesians | Week 27 | In this sermon, Darrell wraps up the 3 part message on standing firm against the powers and principalities, and finishes his time preaching from the book of Ephesians. Here Darrell describes how standing firm is not simply a defensive posture. He shares how disciples can move off of our heels and into front-foot offence by wielding both the sword of the Spirit and prayer in the Spirit.

While we await the day where evil is done away with for good, referencing Ephesians 6, Darrell also outlines four compelling principles to help us live out Paul’s instructions. The prevailing thread throughout all of this being that Jesus has won, and we need only hold the ground.

Spirit Filled Relationships (Part 3)
Ephesians | Week 24 | In the 3rd and final part of Darrell’s preaching on Ephesians 5:15-6:9, he continues to explore how the Spirit impacts all types of relationships. Here Darrell shows how the Apostle Paul first of all dignifies women, children and slaves, addressing them as peers and fellow citizens in God’s Kingdom. He then references the everyday relationships at the time, like that between a servant and a master or a child and a parent. We see how mutual submission is a key component of these spirit filled relationships, and how Jesus empowers us to live into that kind of posture.

Ephesians | Week 23 | In part 2 of Darrell’s preaching on a revolutionary text, Ephesians 5:15-6:9, Darrell seeks to explore a theme that no culture in history has ever got right. Darrell explains how the command to “be filled with the Spirit” works itself out in all of our human relationships. Referencing different relational models - husbands and wives, Christ and the Church - Darrell shows how the text invites us into the high calling of standing under and serving all people with whom we have relationship.

Filled with the Very Life of God
Filled with the Very Life of God
Ephesians | Week 21 | At the heart of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Ephesus is a bold directive to “be filled”-- not with what the world can offer with its pleasures and temptations, but to “be filled with the Spirit.” In this sermon, Darrell illuminates that life-giving command and explores how its lived-out obedience is essential for anyone who desires to follow Christ. Though God is the only One who can fill us with His Spirit, we play an active role in asking to be filled and in opening ourselves up this dynamic, ongoing reality by which we are marked by Jesus and empowered to live lives worthy of our Divine calling.

When Jesus Shines On You
When Jesus Shines On You
Ephesians | Week 20 | Despite what seem to be challenging verses to accept, Darrell shows us in this message that this text is in fact very liberating. In this section of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, he is showing us what happens when Jesus Christ, the light of the world, shines on us. If we are to be “children of the light”, that means we will walk in dark places where Jesus wants to expose deeds, attitudes, and schemes that are not of His kingdom. We won’t participate, but we will be present in the darkness as followers of Jesus.

In Ephesians chapters 1-3, Paul is calling us to this live we have been called. He explains that this new life comes because of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. However in chapters 4-6, he challenges us to walk in a matter WORTHY of this new life. He gives us a list of things we shouldn’t do, to help us know how best to live this new life. Through it all, he instructs us to not grieve the Holy Spirit. And do not give the devil a foothold. Get in step with the spirit.

Rather, the Spirit has already created it, we all simply called to be diligent in maintaining it!

On his knees, a posture of reverence to God, Paul is praying that the Christians would allow the Holy Spirit, the same Spirit who hovered over the earth to create the world and the same Spirit who hovered over the Virgin to bring the Messiah, to indwell us. The Holy Spirit is the same One who in this moment in history hovers over our lives bringing resurrection life to our inner person even as our outer person decays.

When the Gospel Grabs Hold
Ephesians | Week 12 | When grace grabs hold of us, as seen in the life of the Apostle Paul, it radically changes our lives. As we surrender to Jesus, we become stewards of the mystery of the gospel, ministers in the kingdom, and we find our true identity and place in the family of God. Drawing from the unique call of Jesus upon the life of Paul, Darrell shows who we can become when grace grabs hold of us. We are instructed and reminded that God’s grace saves us and is meant to be passed on to others. “Oh to grace, how great a debtor, daily I’m constrained to be.” First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC | May 1, 2011 | Ephesians 3:1-13 Purchase Ephesians: The Wonder and Walk of Being Alive In Christ | www.darrelljohnson.ca/books  Mailing List | www.darrelljohnson.ca/#subscribe-form Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

Something Changed In Heaven...And It Changes Everything on Earth (Worship Central Conference 2019)
Darrell invites us to think about and celebrate a mystery which takes place every time we worship. When we worship here on earth, we are joining a worship service that is already in progress in heaven. By looking at the passages of Isa. 6, and Rev. 4&5, we see the heavenly worship has changed before and after the death and resurrection of Jesus. The changing dynamic of the heavenly worship shapes and empowers our earthly worship. On earth as it is in heaven. Today, when we gather together to worship, we are to cry out: worthy is the Lamb, who sits in the middle of the One who sits on the throne.  You can also see a full video of this sermon on Darrell's Youtube Channel.

Ephesians | Week 9 | Paul’s letter to the Ephesians articulates the gospel of Jesus as a gift received by grace through faith. In everyone who receives this gift of salvation, God is at work, transforming each life into a new creation, a holy poem, a masterpiece crafted by the Maker. Focusing on Ephesians 2:8-10, Darrell explores the core tenets of what it means to become a vibrant new creation in Christ, and urges us on to walk out the good works uniquely prepared in advance for us to do, joining with God as He builds His kingdom here on earth.

Ephesians | Week 8 | In this message, Darrell focuses on three verbs in Ephesians 2:4-7. Jesus’ death, resurrection, and ascension has changed the structure of the universe.  In God’s rich mercy and grace, He made us alive, raised us up, and seated us with Christ. Christ is on the throne, so too are all who belong to Christ! As we are on the throne, we live in His kingdom, a very different kind of dominion. In this dominion, God invites us to be a part of his work of extending the riches of His mercy and grace to the world.

Rescued Out of a Deep Pit
Ephesians | Week 7 | In this sermon, Darrell takes us into the deep pit of our sin and separation from God as the apostle Paul describes it in Ephesians 2:1-10. This is a very difficult text both to preach and to hear. We want to jump to the really good news of verse 4 -  “but God” - and the gospel takes us there - but it is only really, really good news, once we have spent time acknowledging the really bad news. But God in his mercy rescues us out of the pit.

Darrell encourages us to live in the good news of this first chapter, so that we might step into deeper clarity in the chapters to come.

Gospel-Shaped Praying
Gospel-Shaped Praying
Ephesians | Week 5 | In this sermon, Darrell explores the heartbeat of the Apostle Paul’s prayer for the church in Ephesus, a prayer that is expansive and full of expectancy for all believers in Jesus. Paul desires for followers of Christ to know God and to know the benefits of knowing God. Paul’s “gospel-shaped prayer” asks the Holy Spirit for wisdom to help us live in right-relationship with God and for revelation, so that the eyes of our hearts are open to perceive Jesus. Through this “double work of grace,” we come to a deeper understanding of our eternal inheritance, of how richly God has invested His glory in us, and of the transformative power at work in our lives as we pursue Jesus in the dynamic strength of the Spirit.

Ephesians | Week 3 | What does it mean to be rich or blessed? In part one of this sermon, Darrell refers to one of the longest sentences in the Bible, written by Paul in Ephesians 1:3-14 to answer this question. Here we see that to be rich in God goes beyond what we can see with our eyes or what is tangible through material means. Paul reveals to us in Ephesians that to be rich is partake in the Gospel of grace – that is  to be chosen, adopted, redeemed. Furthermore, once we have tasted God's riches, all we can do is worship. As Darrell will echo throughout this message, in the heavenly places we are richer than we think or feel – much richer!

Regardless of our current worldly location, as believers we are “in Christ” and everything we have is “by Christ”. Darrell takes us through Ephesians 1:3-14 to help us understand the alternate universe, location, and reality that Paul is talking about in his letter.

Ephesians | Week 1 | In the first sermon of his series on Ephesians, Darrell walks us into what he believes is the core message of the letter: things are not as they seem. Written by Paul while imprisoned in Rome in 62 A.D, the letter to the Ephesians shows how those who have put their faith in Jesus are able to see reality through a new lens, one that changes our understanding of power, authority, unity, victory, relationship, time, and where salvation is really found. There is a new empire breaking in with a new emperor. Darrell says that with these new glasses on, we are in for quite an adventure as we explore the book of Ephesians.

A Vision of Hope
A Vision of Hope
In this message from Darrell's time candidating at Glendale Presbyterian Church in 1993, two pieces of scripture are explored: Ezekiel 37:1-14 and Romans 8:18-26. Darrell is inviting the church to remember the hope we find in Christ. We see God's promise of resurrection and new life in the story of Ezekiel and the Valley of Dry Bones. The critical idea for us to grasp in this message is that dry bones cannot make themselves live, but the speech and breath of Jesus Christ can. That is the vision of hope.  Glendale Presbyterian Church, CA | July 11, 1993 | Ezekiel 37:1-14 and Romans 8:18-26 Mailing List | www.darrelljohnson.ca/#subscribe-form Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

An All Encompassing Prayer For A New Year
In this sermon Darrell lets us hear the cry of his heart to God from Psalm 119:94: “I am Yours, save me!” This desperate prayer is Darrell’s favourite verse from his favourite Psalm. Even though this prayer is only five words long, it is an all-encompassing prayer. We are God’s because He is our creator, redeemer, adoptive parent, and much more. God saves us from sin, doubt, fear, futility, and every other possible evil in this world. Darrell invites us to join with him in this prayer, welcoming us into the personal and life-changing relationship God offers to us.

Darrell tells the crucial story of two mountains - the mountain of temptation in Matthew 4, and the mountain of victorious authority of Matthew 28. Be encouraged by the good news that because Jesus had fulfilled the role of servant, dying on the cross, being raised from the dead he now has all authority to assume the role of King of the nations. The King with nail-scarred hands.

Not that we can not still sin, but that it is illogical because Jesus’ death, resurrection, and ascension have fundamentally altered the reality of sin. Sin has no claim on Jesus. His death was the death of the power of sin. His resurrection is resurrection to newness of life. We are united with Him, and therefore sin has no claim on us.

The Space In Which He Calls Us To Follow | Week 11 | In John 14:1-12, Darrell helps us acknowledge that Jesus makes one of His most startling promises in His ministry: Jesus claims that we will do more works in our life when we have our faith in Him. Darrell shows how the double “truly truly” in this text is a promise that all Christ followers can build their life on because Jesus dealt with the power of sin and death before going back to the royal throne of the Father. Jesus came to set a new reality of how our world comes together and He ultimately ushers in a new reality through His death, resurrection and ascension. When this happened, Jesus promised that He would send an advocate, the Holy Spirit, who empowers us to lean in, welcome, and throw our weight onto Jesus and His promise.

The Space In Which He Calls Us To Follow | Week 10 | Though Jesus is physically absent from our lives here on earth, we live with the ongoing presence of His Spirit. The Holy Spirit– the “Paraclete,” our Helper– has one main job:  to bear witness to the reality of Jesus for those who believe and for those who don’t yet believe. In this message, Darrell reminds us that the same Spirit who revealed the good news on the day of Pentecost is still convicting and convincing the individual human heart that Jesus is who He says He is. Not only that, the Holy Spirit leads us from the sin of unbelief into the truth that Jesus is victorious over sin, evil, and death, and is translating that victory into our own hearts and minds, transforming our lives so that we, too, may bear witness to Jesus.

In every place we go, with every person we meet, even when sin, evil, and death are present and appear dominant, the good news is that the Paraclete is present and active! The Paraclete, also known as the Holy Spirit, is the presence of Jesus with us and with all people. Jesus revealed this good news to his disciples just before he was crucified, died, was buried, resurrected, and ascended. And this good news is crucial for disciples to understand, because Jesus does not ask us to carry on his work alone. Jesus knows we are not strong enough to do so on our own. Rather, Jesus asks us to join the work that the Paraclete is already and always carrying on.

In Matthew 1:18-25, the Holy Spirit reveals to Joseph the mystery that will unfold before him, that is life-altering. A turning point in Josephs's life, where the future is unsteady but by his faithfulness to God in uncertain times, God meets him in that place of mystery. Resulting, in Joseph embracing the uncertainty and walking into the future behind God.  First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC | December 22, 2013 | Matthew 1:18-25 Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

For Those Disappointed With Christmas
For Those Disappointed With Christmas
Christmas 2013 | Week 2 | Christmas is a time of year with great expectations, but those can also lead to great disappointments. John the Baptist had great expectations of Jesus. That he would be the messiah and bring a baptism of both Spirit and Fire to the world as the prophets foretold. Jesus however, had a different timeline. He came with a baptism of Spirit, yes, but the baptism of fire he has reserved for the day of judgement in the future. So John, imprisoned for speaking out against the adulterous Herod, is left to ask Jesus, are you the “coming one”? Behind his theological struggle to know if Jesus is the messiah, is also his personal struggle to reconcile why he is in prison and Herod is still reigning if Jesus is in fact “the One”. Like John, we too can put our own expectations onto Jesus, which ultimately leaves us disappointed when they aren’t met. Instead, he must let Jesus be Jesus and for Him to fulfill His promises in His timing.    First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC | December 15, 2013 | Matthew 11:2-11   Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

Christmas 2013 | Week 1 | What are you expecting this Christmas? In this message, Darrell looks at the expectations John the Baptist had as he prepared the way for the Lord. Jesus, he came to believe, was the messiah, and so his expectations were that in meeting Jesus, he would meet God. He expected to see signs and wonders of the new kingdom breaking into this world. He expected to be overwhelmed, engulfed, flooded, and filled with the Holy Spirit and fire as the saviour of the world entered in. When you hear the story of Christmas, a baby coming in a manger, what do you expect?

The day of Pentecost is the fulfillment of a promise, the promise of the holy spirit, where God takes up permanent residence in us to be God with us. At Pentecost, the spirit presented himself with wind and fire. The wind removes what is no longer pleasing to the Lord and refreshes our souls, causing an aroma of fresh life. The fire helps illuminate, refine, and ignite new passions and desires for the Lord. Wind and fire mark the presence of the living God.

Giving our tithes is a way of remembering what the Lord has done for us, and is what Paul calls an obedience of faith. We are called to not hold back in our giving and to not rob God any longer.  God’s two-fold promise is that when we trust in him and bring in the whole tithe, he will throw open the floodgates of heaven and protect us from the devourer.

From BIOS to ZOE
The Space In Which He Calls Us To Follow | Week 5 | In this sermon, Darrell brings us into the life-giving conversation Jesus had one night with a religious leader named Nicodemus. Even though Nicodemus is a respected, good, and religious man, he is powerless to attain the spiritual and eternal life of the Kingdom of God on his own power. Jesus is clear that in order to have the full life Nicodemus longs for, he must be born from above. This is crucial to realize - people are not naturally able to attain spiritual life. God must do it. And God is doing it through the work of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. All Nicodemus and we have to do is look to Jesus in faith, and we will grow to experience the same spiritual life that God Himself experiences. Amazingly, God really wants us to share in the life He has. All we need to do is to look to Jesus.   First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC | May 9, 2010 | John 3:1-16   Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

In order for us to live with the longing of His return we must first learn to accept the betrothal from Jesus Christ. We see this betrothal of covenant best exemplified in the holy communion at the last supper. Darrell goes on to further explain that God is using the difficulties in this tension to help us prepare for the wedding ceremony with Jesus, the bridegroom. He's actively working out the wrinkles, purifying us so that we may present ourselves to himself as a holy spotless bride. As we are preparing our lives to be received by Him, Jesus is preparing a place for us in His Father’s house.    First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC | May 2, 2010 | John 14:1‐3   Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

So, How Does He Be With Us?
The Space In Which He Calls Us To Follow | Week 2 | A common question many people ask is: how can God be everywhere at the same time? In this sermon, Darrell takes us through Matthew 28 to help answer that question. In this scripture there are three statements; the great claim, the great commission, and the great comfort. The first statement shows us who God is, the second is a command for those who are following and the third is a promise we can find rest in. The promise is also an invitation for us to go deeper into Christ, to unpack his word and discover the greatness of his omnipresence. Darrell ends by sharing 5 ways in which we can see or sense that God is with us through the body, at the table, in ministry, the bible, and most importantly, through the Holy Spirit.

Here, Jesus tells the disciples that all power and authority in heaven and on earth has been given to him, by the Father. The implications of this claim are far greater than the church could ever try to grasp. Following this great claim, comes Jesus’ command to make disciples of all people and bring entire nations into this great claim. Once we have been gripped with who Jesus is, and the place He has in the universe, discipling others is the natural response.

Grace That Grows | Week 1 | How do we steward what God has given us? In the first message of this series, Darrell unpacks three principles for generosity that we see Paul express in the letter to the Corinthians. The reality of life with God is that He prospers his people, not so they can have more, but so they can be and give more to the world Christ died for. The only way we experience this promise of God though, is to first experience His grace and then to respond in obedience with generosity. As Darrell summarizes: grace makes grace filled people, and grace grows into generosity.

Revelation: Following the Jesus of the Apocalypse
Revelation: Following the Jesus of the Apocalypse
Revelation | Week 12 | Darrell outlines the power that songs play in the story of the Revelation of Jesus. The sixteen songs in the letter provide both a summary of what we are learning and a reminder of the key question; whom do we worship? One song in particular, the doubly named Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb (Rev. 15:3-4) tell the story of God’s redemption of His people. This song is a call to worship the God who is King of all kings. It is a reminder of God’s victory over all that stands in his way, overall that keeps his people from entering the fullness of life. These songs summarize the message of Revelation, so Darrell encourages us to live in the songs, to try to memorize them even so that they might penetrate our souls.

Revelation: I Saw Heaven Opened: The Coming Of The Divine Warrior
Revelation | Week 11 | In this chapter, the Apostle John once again sees heaven open and a great revelation of who Jesus is. This time, Jesus is a warrior, coming down on a white horse. Eyes of blazing fire, a sword in his mouth, an unknown name on his body, a robe covered in blood, and multitudes of crowns. What does this all mean? Darrell walks us through the text to reveal what Jesus is revealing about himself: He is the Divine Warrior who has already won.

Revelation: Did You Get The Invitation?
Revelation | Week 10 | In this sermon Darrell points our attention to a single verse in the last book of the Bible: "Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb." This verse highlights a profound theme in the Bible, that followers of God are collectively the Bride of Jesus Christ! Living into this marriage reality means we have great dignity - no lowly humanity here, we are the Bride of Christ! We also experience God’s delight in us, the intimacy of God knowing us and us knowing God, and the security in this life that God has chosen us to be with him and that he will go to great lengths to keep his marriage covenant with us. God’s invitation to be the Bride of Jesus Christ is sent out to all people, and right now is the time to say yes and be blessed.

Revelation | Week 9 | In this message, Darrell shares his heart on how crucial it is to make sure you read the whole entirety of the Bible. We can be tempted to only read the comfortable texts, but instead we should seek to dive into the challenging ones as well as all scripture is divinely inspired. Revelation 17-19 is a terrifying text in many ways, but also inspiring because we’re getting a first-hand look at the future work of Jesus. John is revealing a drama on how when you build a city on weak, human foundations it will always fall to the ground. Babylon fell and now Jesus is revealing to John the unthinkable fall of Rome. Ultimately, we are left with the question, will we trust in human powers or will we worship Jesus?

Revelation | Week 7 | Darrell unpacks the symbolism of the dragon, the sea beast, and the earth beast, a counterfeit trinity that seeks to inflict harm and calls us to put our trust in that which will never measure up. Darrell explains how the first readers of the text would have easily understood these “beasts” as the political and religious powers of their day that had moved out from under God’s authority. We hear how the early Church’s pressure to compromise loyalty to Jesus, the true Emperor and true God, still exists in our time. We were created to worship, but the question remains: who will we worship? Through the act of the Lord’s Table, which delivers us from religion and the false hope of politics, we see that Jesus is our only hope.  First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC, 2012 | Revelation 13 Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

Revelation: The Lamb Who Overcomes
Revelation | Week 4 | Darrell walks through the opening scene of the second act in the Book of Revelation. While John was worshipping God on the island of Patmos, God showed John a series of dramatic images of a worship that is already in progress. These images are a door to heaven, a lamb sitting on the throne, and a scroll that is to be opened. From these images, what observations can we make regarding the unseen realities of the present and the future? What are the deeper implications of these images and how we should live our lives today? First, through Christ, it is safe to go through heaven’s door and approach the throne. Second, the secret of history is that God wins through sacrificial love through Jesus.  Third, we reign with the ruler who is sitting on the throne when we participate and join in worshipping him.

Revelation | Week 3 | In Revelations 2 & 3 Jesus blows the circuit on who we think he is and what the church is. In the form with which these chapters or ‘messages’ were written, there are prophetic and imperial statements being made about who Jesus Christ is and about what he understands His church to be in and for the world.  For the first time the church gathering is described as ecclesia, a word that was reserved for when people were summoned by the King or Emperor to gather about the business of the city. This week Darryl unpacks the summons from Jesus the Everlasting King for His people to gather, share in His life and be about the business of the Kingdom of God in the city.    First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC, 2012 | Revelation 2 & 3 Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

Revelation | Week 2 | This week, Darrell pulls back the curtain on the pastoral letter written by Apostle John to the seven churches scattered throughout Asia Minor. The book of Revelation unveils the dramatic description of what John witnessed in a vision given by God while exiled on the island of Patmos. John exhorts the Church to see and hear the Voice at the centre of everything, the Voice that is a Person - Jesus Christ. This Voice gives the Church two great commands: to not be afraid, and to look at Him. To listen to this Voice above all the world’s many voices is to hear and see Jesus and to become oriented to the great unseen reality of His rule and reign. In looking at the Living One, we experience a true apocalypse - the revelation that we do not need to fear the future or the turmoil of our present circumstances, because Jesus is on the throne.

Parables of Jesus: The Cost of Discipleship
Parables of Jesus | Week 11 | Darrell shares Jesus’ teaching from Luke 14:23-35 on the cost of discipleship. These weighty, but liberating words are an invitation for us to step into life with Christ. The intense language that Jesus uses in the scripture is to bring conviction, remind us to check our hearts, and to help us understand the cost of following Him. In today's world, many things claim lordship over our lives, including ourselves. They impose unnecessary burden and stress because we are not created to bear their weight. To receive the freedom that God calls us to, we are to renounce the claims of our lives and let God take the place of lordship, taking up his yoke and burden that are light and easy.  First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC, 2014 | Luke 14:25-35 Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Great Banquet
Parables of Jesus | Week 10 | In this sermon, Darrell unpacks the parable of the great banquet. Like many parables, it’s about more than meets the eye. Unlike other parables, it is one of the most autobiographical parables Jesus ever spoke. Here in Luke 14, we learn the depth and breadth of Jesus’ invitation to “come”. We walk through Jesus’ joy, disappointment, and passion in His role as Host. Then Darrell unwraps the scripture further and we realize that, like the guests in the parable, we are a people full of excuses. Not only that, but our excuses reveal to us our TRUE beliefs in and of Jesus, His kingdom, and His character.

Parables of Jesus: How the Kingdom (Ordinarily) Advances
Parables of Jesus: How the Kingdom (Ordinarily) Advances
Parables of Jesus | Week 9 | Darrell unpacks two complimentary parables in the gospel of Luke through which Jesus shares His mission in the world. The kingdom of God is first likened to “a mustard seed which a man took and planted” and also “leaven, which a woman took and mixed”. The context of these parables is Jesus announcing the in-breaking of heaven as he begins healing people and freeing them from the demonic. However, Jesus teaches that the kingdom of God does not come in the way other kingdoms come. The kingdom of God is like a mustard seed, apparently insignificant alongside all other seeds, yet it grows to a plant larger than any other in the garden. And it is like leaven, which though hidden in the bread mixture, yet causes the mixture to expand and rise. The kingdom of God ordinarily comes in little, hidden ways. Often unseen, yet its effects are visible everywhere. The mystery of the kingdom is that the little is powerful, and the hidden is transformative. The gospel does not need the headlines to have its way in the world.

Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Wineskins
Parables of Jesus | Week 8 | In this sermon, Darrell visits the first parable that Jesus taught about new wine, and new wineskins. Similar to the first miracle Jesus performed, this parable sets the stage for the ministry and mission of Jesus’ life. With the wineskins representing the religious forms and patterns, and the wine representing the gospel, Darrell rhetorically challenges the listener to think about which is more important. The main point being that the Church must not lose the ever shaping, potent love of God in order to preserve a form that is at best secondary. All religious activities are a means to an end, and the end being a relationship with the Living God, and enjoying the love of God in Jesus Christ. If it doesn’t lead there, it must be done away with - for we cannot bear to lose the wine.

Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus
Parables of Jesus | Week 7 | Darrell paints the parable of the rich man and Lazarus with illustrative detail as he describes each cultural aspect of the story. Wealth can blind us from seeing the needs of those around us, and in this passage, Darrell shows us the subversive values of the kingdom of heaven at work. Instead of the wealthy man, it was the sick, the outcast, Lazarus, who is at Abraham’s side after death. With great regret, the wealthy man in Hades calls out for help from Abraham and Lazarus, but they are unable to do anything. In desperation, he pleads for them to at least warn his family, but is met with the haunting reply “If they won’t listen to Moses and the Prophets, they won’t even listen if a man raises from the dead.” Darrell shows us that God’s word should illuminate the needs of others around us and that by listening to Jesus’ instructions, we will begin to truly see.

Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Shrewd Manager
Parables of Jesus | Week 6 | Darrell explains the parable of the unrighteous steward. This parable is followed by some of Jesus’ many teachings on the practical issue of money. It tells the story of a land manager who squanders his landowner’s possessions, but receives unexpected mercy from the landowner. As a response to experiencing this mercy, the manager extends mercy to the renters of the land, significantly reducing the cost of rent. Jesus is telling us to do the same. Since we have received immense mercy from God, we must respond to this reality by extending mercy to others. A way we extend this mercy is how we use our money. The parable is not saying that we can buy our way into heaven, but it is saying that what we do with money reveals whether or not the Kingdom of God has broken into our lives. One of the clearest signs that mercy has gotten hold of us is that we use money to extend mercy to others.

Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Prodigal “Father”
Parables of Jesus | Week 5 | Darrell paints us a powerful picture of who God is and what He is like through the story of the “Prodigal Son”, or “Prodigal Father” as Darrell argues should be the rightful title. In Luke 15, we see a father, who represents God, respond to his two different rebellious sons. The older son shames the father by refusing to celebrate when his brother returns, thinking that only he had rightly earned his father’s love. The father responds again in scandalous love, by going against what culture demands, taking the humiliation the son deserves, upon himself instead, inviting the older son closer to his heart. The father’s response to his two sons is the same response to us all, no matter what we have done. Come home, and come on in!” Whether we are law-breaking, or law-keeping, we all are in deep need of His grace, and all of us are welcomed into the scandalous and radical embrace of our loving Father.

Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Prodigal Son
Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Prodigal Son
Parables of Jesus | Week 4 | Jesus was criticized for eating with sinners and tax collectors so he told a parable to the Pharisees and Scribes: the parable of the prodigal son. Darrell unpacks the scandal of what Jesus shared because it revealed the heart of the Father in a way that challenged the religiosity of the Jewish leaders. The story of the son is one of shame and disgrace, for him to squander the wealth of his family was an embarrassment to him, his family, and the community. But the greater shame was for the Father to run out and embrace the son upon him returning home and confessing. In doing so, the father brought the shame of the community onto himself. He then clothes the son, gives him his signet ring, and kills the fattened calf for a feast that defies all cultural norms. As Jesus tells this story, he is painting a picture of the father’s heart for those the Pharisees deemed unworthy and his willingness to love them shamelessly. Darrell encourages us that we can never earn back God’s love, but we can come home.  First Baptist Church, Vancouver, BC, 2013 | Luke 15:1-3 & 11-24 Give to the ministry of Darrell Johnson: www.darrelljohnson.ca/donate Website | darrelljohnson.ca YouTube | youtube.com/darrelljohnson

In light of God being the perfectly just judge, will He find the faith of the widow--who would not go away or lose heart as she waited for justice to be done--in me?

Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Friend in Need
Parables of Jesus: The Parable of the Friend in Need
Parables of Jesus | Week 2 | In response to the disciples asking Jesus to teach them how to pray, he first shares the Lord’s Prayer, but then moves into an often misunderstood parable that further highlights how we should pray. In the parable, a man in need goes to a neighbour to ask for bread to help feed a visitor. Jesus asks his disciples, would not the man get up and help his neighbour? Filled with cultural dynamics, western readers can often understand the text to be about the persistence of the man asking his neighbour and therefore believe Jesus is teaching us to pray with such persistence. Instead, the parable is actually about the shamelessness of the neighbour and how he will help the man asking because we won’t let his name be shamed for not being hospitable. Therefore, Jesus is saying that when we go to God and ask, we can have assurance that He will not shame His name and will respond. As we pray, we are expanding our capacity to receive. And what does the Father give? The Holy Spirit. We are the friend in need in this parable and Jesus’ promise is that God will give us His Spirit if we ask.

Parables of Jesus | Week 1 | This week, Darrell discusses the parable of the sower, the seed and the soil found in Luke 8:1-15. The parable involves three main subjects: Jesus, represented by the sower, the word of God, represented by the seed, and the hearts of the people, represented by the soil. All three subjects are in dynamic interplay with one another. Jesus rightfully expects that fruit will be a result of the planted seed. There are, however, obstacles in the growth of fruit in human hearts. These obstacles according to Jesus, are the various heart conditions that choke out kingdom life. They are the hardened heart, the shallow heart, and the cluttered heart. However, Jesus, in His grace and by His power, can win in all of the soils. He has proven to win despite our obstructed heart conditions. Jesus calls us to stand under the Word of God with honest and good hearts, and it will bring forth the extravagant fruit of His very spirit.

He describes chapter 1 as Jonah running from God. Chapter 2: Jonah running into God. Chapter 3: Jonah running with God, and Chapter 4: the chapter that Darrell covers in this message, is Jonah trying to run God. In this message, Darrell leans into the main thread of chapter 4 which is Jonah’s deep frustration with the merciful and compassionate dimension of God, and the reality that God isn’t acting how he would. Darrell does just a brilliant job unpacking and clarifying the odd events in this chapter, and applying the good news of Jesus to its abrupt ending.

Darrell seeks to answer three questions in this message: First, "Why did the Ninevites repent?", second "What would have happened if they didn’t?" and third, "What is the message for our cities and us today?"  All throughout, Darrell provides such an accurate window into God’s great love and grace for the city of Nineveh. And with the repentance of Nineveh on full display in this chapter, Darrell voices the question that we the listeners might be wondering as he’s sharing, which is “Could we ever see something like that in our cities today?” Finally, Darrell concludes this sermon in such a beautifully unique fashion - He simply shares what he would say if he had the attention of his city for just 10 minutes.

Jonah flees in chapter one and is quickly reminded in chapter two, in the belly of a saving fish, that He cannot outrun God. For the bulk of this message, Darrell zooms in on the moments in the whale.

Jonah Series: Feeling for the City What God Feels for the City
Jonah Series | Week 1 | Darrell begins the series by covering all of Jonah chapter 1. He starts this episode message by casting vision for the church to be a community that’s following Jesus with God’s heart for the city. That is the framing Darrell provides for the book of Jonah as a whole - "the book is all about Jonah (and therefore us) being confronted with God’s feeling towards the city - His mercy, His grace and His patience extended to those far from Him." Darrell, moving through chapter 1 section by section, shows that there was a dimension of God’s heart that Jonah wishes did not exist, and how ultimately in chapter 1 on stormy waters, he had to reckon with it. And the truth is, we have to reckon it as well. He ends by leading the congregation in a prayer that is more than a closing prayer, it’s really a prayer that gives space for the Spirit to confront and transform the parts of Jonah that live in all of us.

Revelation Series | Darrell preaches from Revelation 1:9-20, where John sees the seven lampstands, and this figure who John says was amongst them “like a son of man.” After spending some time providing insight on this category of literature and context for why John was writing from an island, Darrell sets out to share three key features of Revelation 1. He then closes by sharing the hopeful implications of this voice speaking from the middle, and why you and I do not have to be afraid - not now, and not ever.

Week 10: Building a City Without God
Week 10: Building a City Without God
Genesis Series | In this last message of our Genesis series, Darrell unpacks Genesis 11:1-9 where we read about the people of Babel who set out to build a city and a tower that they hope will reach to the heavens.  Darrell argues that the narrative describes a people who are ultimately on a quest for transcendence; a creative culture which seeks to live independently and without a true centre.  Reflecting on the pattern we have seen through the earlier chapters in Genesis – Grace, Rebellion, Judgement, then new Grace – Darrell shows us that, even after God comes down and frustrates this building of a human-centred society, there is still hope to come.  Indeed, we find a story of new grace emerging, a story that every broken city in the world is longing for.

Week 9: Starting Over
Week 9: Starting Over
Genesis Series | In this sermon Darrell dives into the story of Noah & the Great Flood. Now this story is one of profound obedience and tragedy, but a tale about a great flood isn’t unique to the Bible. Darrell begins by pitting the Genesis story of the flood against other versions of it, explaining the uniqueness of Yahweh’s heart and ultimately how these stories signify that this isn’t a myth - that something must have happened. Darrell spends the bulk of the message answering three questions in the narrative - Why? What? And now what?

Week 8: Keeping His Word
Week 8: Keeping His Word
Genesis Series | In this sermon, Darrell leans into the genealogy from Adam to Noah written in Genesis 5. Now genealogies aren’t always the most entertaining read in the Biblical text, but Darrell in this sermon shows the profound meaning embedded in them. In this teaching, Darrell highlights two important things genealogies teach us and highlights 4 keywords in the text that show us how the Lord is always keeping His word.

Week 7: Grace Outside The Garden Contending For Our Souls
Week 7: Grace Outside The Garden Contending For Our Souls
Genesis Series | This sermon walks out of Genesis 3, into the exodus out of the garden and the heartbreaking story of Cain & Abel. In this sermon, Darrell continues to show how the sometimes dark and sad story of Genesis is also full of light and hope. If the last message showcased God’s grace in the garden, this one certainly shows the unexplainable grace outside of the garden. Darrell does brilliant work to help us understand the heart of Cain, and just how kind the Lord was to Him and His people in the fallout.

Week 6: Grace Outrunning the Avalanche of Sin
Genesis Series | In this sermon, Darrell continues an exploration of Genesis 3. If you’re familiar with this chapter of Scripture, you know how devastating and heartbreaking it is. Adam and Eve have chosen independence from God, and it’s created profound consequences. In today’s message, you’ll hear Darrell talk about those consequences but also the incredible hope and promise embedded in the story; the serpent’s head will be crushed, death will not have the final say - Jesus will come and restore the four-fold relationship broken in the garden.

Week 5: Messing With Our Minds About The Only Command
Week 5: Messing With Our Minds About The Only Command
Genesis Series | In this sermon, Darrell explores the greatest question we have to ask as humans: Will we trust God? Darrell highlights how this temptation was first faced by Eve in Genesis 3 when the serpent came to her and questioned what God had said. His goal was to make her question the goodness of God, and it worked. Instead of trusting God, Eve and Adam chose to trust in themselves. Darrell warns us that we can too easily fall prey to the same temptations, to think we can live independently from God, but that this ultimately leads to hurt, brokenness, sin, and death. God, however, sent Jesus as the ultimate display of His goodness and through His life, death, and resurrection, our trust in God brings us back into right relationship with Him.

Genesis Series | Darrell leans into Genesis 2:16-17 where God prohibits man from eating from the tree of knowledge of good & evil. Darrell shares a number of clarifications on this passage that I found so helpful. He sets out to say in this sermon that there really is only one command in Scripture and that all other commands are a variation on the theme. The theme being this: "God will be God, you and I are the creature. Live in dependence on Him – and we will have life."

Do Not Be Afraid: The Way Church Christmas Service
This special episode is from The Way Church’s Christmas Eve Service that was shared on Christmas Eve. It’s five clips of Darrell preaching from Luke 2:1-20 broken up by Christmas songs and worship performed by the Way Church worship team. The exhortation of this message is “Do Not Be Afraid” - as Darrell shares, it’s the one command that exists in the Christmas Story. In these sermon clips, littered with references to Charlie Brown, the Titanic, and the pandemic, Darrell shares why certain figures in the Christmas story didn’t need to be afraid, and why we too don’t need to be afraid in this unique pandemic Christmas we’re experiencing.

Rediscovering the Joy of the Incarnation
Rediscovering the Joy of the Incarnation
BONUS EPISODE | This episode is a special, bonus conversation that we recorded recently between Darrell and Jason Ballard, pastor at The Way Church. At the beginning of December, Darrell was moved by the number of pastors he heard of who were considering moving on from pastoral ministry because of the unique pressure of this pandemic season. So in response, he wrote a letter to those wanting to quit titled “Don’t Give Up.” Upon release, the content of this letter resonated with hundreds of leaders, and so Darrell decided he wanted to do a follow-up conversation leaning into some of those themes from the letter.

The Stunning Proclamation of Christmas
The Stunning Proclamation of Christmas
This message is from the Christmas Eve of 2016, and here Darrell preaches from Luke 2:10-12. The big idea Darrell drives home is the Christmas story is about more than a baby being born, but a new leader being born. Jesus Christ, the one who would form a new government that will truly administer justice, make peace and heal the hearts of people. And the big question we all have to answer in response to this great birth is “Where is this baby, this new leader, wanting to lead me?” Vancouver, BC, 2016 This episode was brought to you by the Canadian Church Leaders Network.

Week 3: Four-Fold Relational Harmony
Week 3: Four-Fold Relational Harmony
Genesis Series | Darrell takes the time to explain how Genesis chapter 2 gives us a vision for being human in the created world. He shares how the Genesis story shows us that truly being human is to live in a harmonious relationship with the earth, others, ourselves, and God. Darrell shows that Scripture makes the case that pursuing harmony in these four relationships is what brings God’s Kingdom, or "shalom” here on earth.
