TruthTalks (Sermon) God is Able!

“Able” = an expansion of the Greek word ‘dunamis’ = miraculous power.

In this sermon Dr. Christopher Peppler, drawing from the book of Jude, talks about our everyday lives and the troubles we face, how we feel we fall short of being better disciples, etc. But he explains that God is ABLE. He is able to…

  • Speak to us when He needs to
  • Intervene in our lives when He chooses to
  • Heal and even create something out of nothing when He decides to
  • Keep us from falling
  • And more
There are no restraints or limits on His ability and His miraculous power.
This is a particularly good message to hear if you are feeling “unable” as we are given insight into all that God is able to do for us when we can’t. We all stumble through our lives as disciples of Jesus – over sinful behaviours, bad attitudes, and life circumstances,but God is able to keep us from falling away from faith in Him. ROM 8:39 nothing is ‘able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’


To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen’. (Jude 24-25)

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
