Obadiah 15 – What is justice and who is truly just? Obadiah 15 simply explains these thorny questions. Listen in and be encouraged to praise the God who alone is just.
Matthew 7:1-12 – As the sermon on the mount draw to a close, Jesus gives us two final lessons in kingdom living – judge others the right way and go to God with all your needs.
Ezekiel 36:23 – Our sin profranes God’s name, but He is resolved to vindicate His name. How does He do it? Saving sinners through Jesus.
Matthew 6:1-18 – Jesus doesn’t just want disciples who outwardly obey His commands, He wants their hearts as well. Listen in and hear of the high standards of Jesus and at the same time His grace to sinners.
Matthew 5:1-16 – In the Beatitudes, King Jesus calls his people to live as citizens of the kingdom of heaven… now. Our priorities and behaviour are radically challenged as Jesus holds out the blessed life.
Mt 4:12-25 – As Jesus’ ministry begins, it becomes clear that His kingdom is on the move. It’s victory is sure. Seeing this advance gives us hope, purpose and proof. Listen in to see and be challenged.
Matthew 3:1-17 – How does one prepare to meet King Jesus? Repent. What’s He, this King, like? Better than we can even imagine. Matthew introduces us to the King in this the first of 15 sermons in Matthew’s Gospel.
Hebrews 13:5 – The gospel of Jesus Christ should impact every area of the Christian’s life (even our bank accounts). Why can we be content with what we have? Because God will never leave us nor forsake us.
Genesis 49:29-50:26 – As the last 2 patriarchs die and Genesis closes, we’re reminded again of God’s control over all things and the call to trust God’s promises to the end.
Hebrews 7:25 – A done deal. Finished. All wrapped up. That’s every Christian’s salvation. Why? Because Jesus is alive and well today.
Hebrews 10:31 – The first Good Friday was a dreadful day for Jesus, but it was the basis for our acceptance before God. It’s a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, but, thankfully, Jesus went there for us.
Matthew 28:19-20 & Galatians 3:13-14 – In order for evangelism to become “normal,” we need to have a re-think. We must see evangelism as a command to be obeyed (instead of a suggestion), and a privilege (instead of a chore). Christians will not face the curse of God. This changes everything!
As the authority of Scripture is attacked, and the wider culture increasingly focuses on the self; the church faces a very stiff test. Jesus builds His church despite the winds of change blowing across the western world. In fact, in a time like no other before, the Gospel spreads to the “far corners of the […]
Deut 4:5-8 & John 4:39-42 – Are we all alone in our efforts to evangelise? Thankfully, no. The church both adorns the gospel we proclaim and supports and helps us in our outreach. What an asset the church is to our evangelism! Let’s make use of it.
The reformation hit the church like an earthquake, and the aftershocks were felt long after Luther and Calvin. Across Europe (but especially in England), believers (called Puritans) long to see all of church life conformed to Scripture. It’s a pressure-filled period of church history, yet through it all, Jesus builds His church. May we continue […]
Gen 1:27-28 & Deut 7:7-9 – “Evangelism” is a word that generates anxiety for most Christians. Understanding what evangelism is (and what it isn’t!), is the first step towards faithfulness (no matter how we might feel!).
Genesis 41-44 – One day Joseph is in prison and the next he’s practically the most powerful man in the world! In Joseph’s story, we see just how wonderful and surprising God’s workings are. We’re urged to praise him and to… repent.
Genesis 39-40 – Joseph’s life is the stuff of nightmares. Betrayed, enslaved, falsely accused, imprisoned and seemingly forgotten – this is Joseph’s lot. From this grim account, Christians can learn 2 facts about hard times: firstly, God is with us, and secondly so is temptation.
As the church continues to be distracted in the so called “Dark Ages,” rays of light burst forth. Jesus continues to build His church, even though she’s all too often impure. There’s a lot we can yet learn from Bernard, Anselm and Hildegarde von Bingen. Most importantly, God’s people must be devoted to Christ! This […]
