One

Today’s passage: Ephesians 2:11-22 The gospel of Jesus Christ is amazingly simple. Mostly, religion is about proving ourselves worthy of God. It’s about living an upright, moral life. It’s about attaining a standard of life that is superior to the majority of others. It’s about being able to say that we have harshly disciplined ourselves, […]

Groaning and Glory

Sermon Questions What does it mean to share in Jesus’ sufferings? Why do we gladly suffer? What is glory? How is it linked to suffering? Groaning and Glory #1: Creation What is wrong with the universe? What does creation long for? Why? Why is it that creation groans? How does the state of creation speak […]

How Extravagant

This morning, we’re starting our brand new series on Easter. Over the next six weeks or so, we’ll follow along with Mark as he takes us on a journey through the week of Jesus’ life centered around his death. Easter is kind of like Christmas, I guess, in that many people here this morning will […]

No Detours

If our destination is assuerd, does our path there matter? If we don’t know our individual life span, then how much time can we use, waste or lose? Does it matter? Who would you rather be… Lois or Eunice? Why? Can you detect how God talks to you? Do you agree with John Newton:     […]

Encouragement

A few years ago now, one of my mates signed up for a group called Toastmasters. I don’t know if anybody here knows about toastmasters? Basically, it’s a group of people getting together to improve their public speaking skills. Each week, a few of the members have to get up and give a speech to […]

Prayer and Mission

This morning, we’re continuing our journey with Doctor Luke through the second half of his gospel – the book of Acts. Last week, Luke told us about how we should be bold in what we pray for – because God is able to do so much more than we can even begin to imagine. Last […]

Prayer

This morning, I have a confession to make. I confess that there have been times when I’ve been praying with a group of people, and I’ve held myself back in what I prayed for. Have you ever had that feeling that you really should pray something BIG, but you just kept quiet? This morning, as […]

Jesus in the Temple

Over the last month or so, we’ve been looking at what it takes to grow godly families. We’ve explored the effect that our faith has on our relationships in our families. We’ve seen that God wants our families to reflect the relationship that he has with his church. Because at the end of the day, […]

Fractal Families

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been looking at what the Bible has to say about growing Godly families. We’ve seen in Ephesians 5 and 6 how our being Christians changes the way we relate to each other. Husbands and wives are called to submit to each other. Children are expected to obey and […]

Children and Parents

I have such an incredible respect for parenthood. Raising a family is one of the most awesome blessings that God gives us as humans. But that blessing comes with responsibility. Because God desires Godly families. Families where mum and dad teach and show and live out for their kids what it means to be a […]

Husbands and Wives

Families. They’re so important. They’re the place where our most significant relationships are. Husband. Wife. Children. Parents. They’re the place where we learn so much about our lives. In a Christian family, they’re where we first come face to face with the good news of Jesus. When you think about it, it’s not surprising how […]
