Everything Is Going His Way
The world under human kingdoms is a dark place in need of hope. God reveals to Daniel, Nebuchadnezzar and to us that the greatest hope we could ever have is this: God is really God and everything is going His way.
Flourish Where You Are Found
Do you ever feel like you would be better once your circumstances were? God's sovereignty displayed in the book of Daniel gives us faith and hope that we can flourish what ever circumstances we are found in.
When the world is turned upside down, how are the believers supposed to keep calm and carry on? Jeremiah makes it clear to the remnant of Judea who are living in fear that trusting in God is never optional if you are to be the covenant people. *Corrections I would like to note three corrections that need to be pointed out in my sermon: 1. Locution does in fact mean the meaning of words in a particular culture 2. Illocution refers to the way words are formed and transformed through different genre like poetry or narrative 3. Mizpah that is referred to in the text is most likely the one in Benjamin's territory and not the one located in Gilead on the East of the Jordan
Stop and Consider the Time
What does it mean to be blessed? What are the messages of the beatitudes? How can I be God's salt and light to the world?
Evangelism Training Sermon
Who do you find it most difficult to share your faith with? Family, friends, work colleagues, strangers or people of other religions? Do you feel unequipped when it comes to presenting the Gospel? Listen in as we give you some effective strategies for opening up conversations and strategies for the sharing of your faith.
Who or What is Your Idol?
We tend to dismiss idolatry because we think only of those who have visible forms of idols. This is still part of our world, and it is amazing that people in our modern times have been just as foolish and idolatrous as were the pagans in ancient days.
Jesus: Servant Saviour Son of God
Who do you say Jesus is? As we come to the conclusion of Mark's gospel are you convinced the Jesus is a servant for humanity unlike any other. A Saviour of the soul and the express image of Son of God. There is no one like Jesus.
The King's Rejection, Our Redemption
King Jesus faces utter rejection: betrayal and desertion; conviction and condemnation. Yet His commitment to His people (us) is demonstrated through his faithful obedience; His promise to us of never leaving presence; His assurance of lasting hope and His full securing of our redemption. What A King!
Not The End Of The World
Are you caught up in end of the world conspiracies? As believers we may find ourselves caught up in looking for the signs of the end of the world; whilst ignoring Jesus' imperative to see that the gospel is preached to the ends of the earth. Let's keep our eyes on the true aims of the gospel!
Are you the type of person that likes to question authority? Its may come as no surprise that Jesus was at odds with all types of people on the religious spectrum, conservative and liberals alike. Jesus claim to authority reveals their lack of commitment to God and their loyalty to their own system of belief.
The Saviour, Judge and Lord Returns
As Jesus humbly triumphs towards the cross He teaches all men to trust and remain in Him to be saved, bear pleasant fruit through Him, and exercise God’s power through prayer in His name.
The Way into the Kingdom: Poverty, Suffering, Service
The world’s kingdom values riches, comfort and being served. Jesus completely flips this upside down, and shows us that the way into His kingdom is through being poor, suffering with him and serving God and his people. This road is hard, but it offers us entrance into an eternal kingdom where we will find real riches, everlasting comfort and eternal life with Jesus.
Up The Mountain Down Into The Valley
Have you ever noticed that our best moments are closely followed by our worse? Like the disciples we will also discover that Jesus is always able to guide and comfort us in the highs and lows of life.
The deaf hear, the blind see but the Pharisees cannot do either
Do you ever mistake your partial sight for full sight? The Apostle Paul reminds us that we see through a glass darkly but our own self reliance can make us forget this. Jesus shows us that only he can make us see.
Unclean Religion and the Grace of Christ
Our superficial attempts to make ourselves clean are not enough. In fact, they often make us dirtier. The Lord Jesus shows us that the real issue is not our outward deeds, but with our corrupted hearts. Yet, He can truly make us clean only when we respond with dependent faith.
Jesus: God’s Message, Mission and Provision
How can we serve God in the face of rejection, opposition and impossible odds? God’s messengers may be rejected, opposed and out of their depth but can be sure that He is ever present to fulfil his purposes.
The Tale of Two Crossings
Who or what do you go to when you are on the brink of hopeless despair? In the space of two crossings at the sea of Galilee, Jesus will: calm the fears of the disciples; exorcse a demon possessed man; heal a sick woman and raise a girl from the dead. Jesus helps the hopeless.
The Man Who Told Stories
What stories do you tell yourself? Jesus told stories that highlighted the truths of the kingdom of God. How do his stories interpret our own and connect us to his meta-narrative?
