5 Reasons to Receive the Servant Saviour
Why welcome a Saviour if the world seems fine the way it is? His power to heal the sick or His will to receive scum? There’s more to gain receiving and all to lose for challenging the Son of Man.
Servant, Saviour, Son of God
What proof would you need to believe that someone is God in person? As we step into the book of Mark, consider the action packed CV of Jesus typified in the opening chapter and ask yourself, ‘Why would he prevent people from telling others who he is?’
Life Must Follow Death
Do you ever wonder what Jesus taught the disciples on the road to Emmaus? Even though we do not know what Jesus said to them, we do know that their hearts burn within them once he said it. Today we will also discover how important the resurrection is to the flow of the biblical story.
Facing the Inevitability of Death.
How do you feel about dying? Is it something you think about often? Or does the thought of it fill you with anxiety? In this sermon we will discover that for believers death is no doomsday event but a glorious gateway to heaven. Are we willing to give up what we cannot keep in order to gain something we cannot loose?
Have you ever put in place measures to improve the lives of your community only to find them discarded sometime later? Nehemiah returns to Jerusalem to find that his people are again in spiritual decline. How can Israel survive if spiritual reforms do not continue?
The Danger of Compromise
Are you aware of the temptation to make room for foreign things to live in your worship? How much space do you give to accommodate the surrounding culture in your life, thinking, fellowship and relationships? Nehemiah shows us that God’s holy people must guard against compromising with the surrounding culture.
Dedicated to the Cause
Do you view your life as being divided into two areas of sacred and secular? Nehemiah, in our text today, will challenge the people of Israel to see their whole life as being dedicated to the service of God.
Covenant Commitment and Meaningful Membership
How do we, the church, live in meaningful community in the New Testament age? Nehemiah knew that building a city was easier than living well in it. So, here he is joining in with other leaders to commit to keeping the covenant. The local church today needs no less of a commitment if it also wants to survive.
God's Compassion for Our Salvation
How could God not forsake the church and all mankind for how evil and wicked we’ve all become? The returning exiles prayer of confession reminds us that God is compassionate and He is faithful to His promise to save. We today have a better covenant God has secured through Jesus who was forsaken for our salvation.
The Law in the Head, Heart and Actions
Have you ever longed to get together with the assembly of God's people? The Israelites are finally assembled in Jerusalem with a complete Temple and secure wall. But none of that will mean anything unless the people within it are righteous.
You're Nobody Until Somebody Hates You
Are you standing in the work of God so firmly that it's causing people who hate the work to notice? In our text today, we will discover how Nehemiah persevered through oppositions without and within.
Family, Frenemies, and the Fear of God
Church hurts ever got you down? The way Nehemiah addresses the hurts God's people were causing each other is a lesson to us all.
Standing Firm in the Face of Opposition
As a Christian wanting to serve the Lord you will experience opposition whether its physically or spiritually. Let's see how Nehemiah responds to the attack in our text.
We Built this City
Building God’s kingdom is a community project, needing leaders and co-builders to work together, while we await the future of the coming city of God.
How To Build A City For God
Can we get involved in building a city for God? God’s plan, provision and honest assessment are crucial for lasting success.
Rome wasn't Built in a Day
Is your heart being stirred to get involved with helping the people of God? Like Nehemiah, you maybe drawn through prayer to the epicentre of God's work.
Your Place in God’s Purpose
Did 2020 leave you feeling tired, with your hands thrown in the air feeling like you just don’t care; asking yourself ‘what’s the point’? May the parable of the Minas help to restore the eternal perspective of your place in God’s purpose.
End of Year Retrospective
What does the advent of Christ mean for you? For Paul the advent meant mercy and grace for him the chief of sinners. Hopefully the advent will mean the same for you.
Born So We Might Shine Like Stars
As Christians the Apostle Paul calls us to put away all complaining and to be a light in a crooked and twisted generation. What are some of the challenges we face as we try to live this out? Do you feel the light of Christ that once shone so brightly within you is slowly flickering away? What steps can you take to reignite it?
Born to be Highly Exalted
Because Christ gave up divine privileges, became a man, a servant who was obedient to the point of death on a cross, God the Father has exalted Jesus to the highest place. All must bow the knee and confess Him as Lord! This is why He was born.
