Four requests to the Son of God

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 09:24:43 +0000

People were constantly making requests of Jesus – for help, for healing, for direction. In chapter five of his Gospel, St Mark records some dramatic events and during these four requests were made to Jesus. How did He respond? What do we learn from His responses which will help us in the situations we face?

Need Patience?

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 13:52:44 +0000

Patience is something that doesn't come naturally to most of us.  In this message, Florence discovers that patience has the best chance of flourishing when times are tough; patience is directly linked to our view of God; and patience involves action.

Stairway to Heaven

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 12:47:41 +0000

In Genesis 28:10-22 we read of a dream that the young runaway Jacob had.  In this message, Florence unpacks the significance of Jacob's dream and demonstrates its relevance to us by answering three questions: What did he see?  What did he hear?  What did he do?

The Silent Voice

Sun, 01 May 2016 16:11:03 +0000

In 1 Kings 19:7-13, Elijah realises that God is not limited to working on a grand scale.  He has discovered that God also speaks quietly, personally and insistently.  But how do we recognise the voice of God?  This is one of the questions Florence considers in this message.

Eight days after

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 09:45:15 +0000

Eight days after Easter, one of the disciples, Thomas, had an encounter with the risen Christ which completely changed him from his state of disbelief into one of praise and submission to Jesus Christ as his Lord and God. Join James this week as he looks at the life-changing experience of the disciple who is sometimes known as “Doubting Thomas.”

Sun, 21 Feb 2016 20:38:16 +0000

Florence looks at part of 1 Kings 19 which describes the despondent state of the prophet Elijah.  Why was he running on empty?  How did God respond?

The forgotten hero of Christmas

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 13:02:42 +0000

 Joseph of Nazareth plays a crucial role in the Christmas story as the husband of Mary and legal father of Jesus.  But who was this man?  What was his relationship to Mary?  How does the Bible describe him?  Florence takes these questions as the basis of her message on this forgotten hero of Christmas.

In for the High Jump (Part 2)

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 06:50:31 +0000

With the background of Peter’s spectacular failure as a disciple we might have expected that he would set the bar for Christian discipleship really low.  The reality however is quite the opposite – we are to be holy as God is holy!  How are we ever going to come anywhere near clearing that bar?  In the second part of a two-part message on 1 Peter 1:13 to 2:3 James concentrates on Peter’s teaching which helps us recognise why we are to be holy and how we are to achieve this.

Running to Win

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 08:33:01 +0000

Living as followers of Jesus Christ is often compared to running a race - not a quick sprint but a long, arduous marathon.  How can we run in such a way as to get the prize?  In this stand-alone message from 1 Corinthians 9:24-27, Florence suggests three things: engage in strict training; run with purpose; and be self-controlled.

Faith (Hebrews 11:1-6)

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 08:39:50 +0000

The concept of ‘faith’ is often ridiculed by non-Christians and misunderstood by Christians. Faith is the response of trust to the biblical God who wants to be known and loved.

Disorder - Genesis 3:1-24

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 19:46:33 +0000

Every language has a word for evil. It is pervades and invades every aspect of creation. In the biblical view, evil is essentially the evidence of a disordered universe. God has designed the universe to function in a certain way. When you follow the design plan, you flourish. When you disregard it, you wither. Evil is the consequence of disregarding the design plan. Evil is a universe in disorder.

Sin

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 21:50:39 +0000

The central truth that helps us understand God's design plan is that the biblical God is Creator and humans (and all the universe with them), creation. Sin, in essence, is a disregard for these basic truths. When viewed in this way, Sin expresses itself in two ways: pride, where I take the place of God and/or self-contempt, where I undervalue the goodness with which God has made me and the rest of creation.

Moral Design

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 09:56:48 +0000

God has created the universe in line with his own character and nature. God's creation flourishes when it functions according to his design plan. This principle is applied to the moral design of the universe. We ultimately learn what the moral design of creation, what is right or wrong, good or evil as we are rooted in relationship with the Creator God of the Bible.

Design (Genesis 1 & 2)

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 16:16:33 +0000

God has created this universe and designed it to function in line with his own moral nature. He has designed us humans to freely know him, love him, be loved by him and enjoy him forever. We flourish when we choose to follow the design plan and wither when we neglect it.

Peter's future as a disciple

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 10:46:40 +0000

Peter failed spectacularly as a follower of Jesus at a time when Jesus needed him the most.  But failure doesn't have to be final.  Jesus had much work for Peter to do in the future, but first Peter had to be fully restored to discipleship.  Join James and find out how this process worked out one day by the Sea of Galilee.

Does God have a plan for my life?

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 21:17:25 +0000

When confronted with a variety of options, we often find ourselves asking questions.  Is this really the direction in which I should go?  Is this actually the route God wants me to take?  How do I even begin to find out what specific plans God might have for me?  If you've ever asked questions like these, you might discover some helpful answers in this week's audio.

Four responses to the Word of God

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 09:07:42 +0000

Jesus told parables so that we could easily understand spiritual truth – right?  Wrong!  He told parables to reveal truth to those who believe and conceal it from those who don’t.  That’s what makes the “Parable of the sower” either the easiest or most difficult parable to figure out.  Are you ready to join James this week and have a go?

Escaping judgement, embracing mercy

Mon, 09 Feb 2015 10:12:23 +0000

The Old Testament book of Micah was written in the 8th century before the birth of Christ but its message is as relevant to us today as it was to Micah's original hearers.  In the first of a three-part series, Florence unpacks chapters 1 and 2 where God exposes and judges the sins of His unfaithful people but extends mercy to His faithful people.

The Undivided Heart (Haggai 2.10-19)

Wed, 04 Feb 2015 09:31:54 +0000

The loyalties of the believer are often pulled in all directions. The Lord calls us to be devoted to him with an undivided heart. His assurance is that when we make him our priority we gain not only him but also our life. His warning is that that if we make something other than God our priority, we risk losing him and everything else. As Augustine reminded the church, if Christ is not valued above all, he is not valued at all.

Born into the Body of Christ

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 11:40:11 +0000

The Church is the family of God into which we are born when we come to faith in Christ. Ultimately it is impossible to come to full maturity as a Christian without participation in the Church. This is because Jesus is always followed in the company of other believers. Isolating ourselves from the people of God is not just difficult, but it in fact is dangerous to our spiritual life. For all its weaknesses, the Church is still the main means through which God tells the world of his love for them.

Cultivating Hope (Romans 5.3-5)

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 17:06:07 +0000

The biblical idea of of hope refers to a true and confident expectation we have in God that no matter what situation we walk into, with Christ Jesus we have all we need to rise and meet its demands; and because of Christ Jesus that we can confidently expect that the ultimate outcome will be good. Such hope is difficult to exercise. But it can be cultivated. It emerges as a consequence of a character forged through patient perseverance through inconvenience and even suffering.

Surprised by God (Matthew 1:18-24)

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 17:52:13 +0000

Something of the surprise of the Christmas message is lost with the yearly repetition of this wonderful account. The events of Christmas viewed through the eyes of Joseph give us an opportunity to see the Christmas account for how remarkable it really was. Joseph's first surprise is the shocking news of his fiance Mary's pregnancy. The next surprise is even more amazing when an angelic visitor turns up in a dream. But, the message the angel leaves Joseph is still more incredible; that Mary is still a virgin and the child in her womb is placed there by God, the Holy Spirit. If that were not enough, the angel continues with the astonishing word that this child will offer the world deliverance from the grip of evil. But, all these surprises pale in comparison to the greatest one of them all. The child is in fact God in human flesh. When we rediscover the matchless person of Jesus in this timeless account, we open ourselves again to his impact on our lives and the world.

What to pray... when you don't know what to pray (Part 1)

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:20:26 +0000

We don't always know what to pray.  Jesus' disciples had the same problem so He taught them what is traditionally known as the Lord's Prayer.  In the first of a two-part series, Florence unpacks the first half of this prayer with its focus on God's name, kingdom and will. Why not allow this model prayer to shape your own prayers?

Four responses to the Son of God

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:32:39 +0000

It’s not possible to be neutral about Jesus Christ.  When we are confronted with him we are forced to make a decision either for or against him.  In chapter 3 of Mark’s Gospel Jesus is very clearly declared and revealed to be the Son of God.  How did the people respond?  Well, amazingly, three groups rejected him in different ways and only one group became his disciples.  Join James this week as he looks at this very challenging part of the Bible but be warned - you’ll have to make a decision!

God works for good

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:40:27 +0000

Of the many insights learned from the life of Joseph, one that stands out is that in all circumstances, God works for the good of those who love him (Romans 8.28). Events from Joseph's life teach us that God takes our unremarkable moments, our victories and our tragedies and brings about good for those who trust him.

Be Fruitful and Multiply (Part 3)

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:38:50 +0000

 In this last of a 3-part series that traces the storyline of the Bible, we see how the Old Testament concludes by anticipating a figure who will do what Israel could not do, mediate blessing to the whole earth. This person, the New Testament tells us is the person of Jesus Christ, who through his suffering and death becomes the agent of God's blessing throughout the earth. His followers are then commissioned to continue what he has started, empowered by God. The ultimate design of creation will, one day, be fulfilled when creation will be blessed under Christ.

Be Fruitful and Multiply (Pt 2)

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 10:34:34 +0000

Vijay continues his Bible survey tracing the grand theme of blessing throughout the Bible. When God created humans, he created them to be fruitful and to multiply, that they be blessed and be a blessing. But, the earliest accounts in the Bible show that humans are 'fruitful', that they do 'multiply', but in evil not in righteousness. In today's sermon, Vijay traces the story starting from Abraham to the end of the OT. In Abraham, God promises to bless Abraham and make him a blessing to all the families of the earth. From Abraham emerges a nation, Israel, that is created by God for one purpose, to make God known to the ends of the earth and by doing so blessing all creation. He concludes with a challenge to remind followers of Christ to bless others even as we have been blessed by God.

Be Fruitful and Multiply

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 16:52:47 +0000

Vijay starts a short series that traces the storyline of the Bible as God's commitment to bless creation. In this first sermon he looks at the story beginning from creation to the account at Babel. When God creates humans, he blesses them with the capacity to flourish, enjoy God's creation and enjoy healthy relationship with others. This capacity for blessedness is ultimately rooted in a right relationship with God. But not only are humans to enjoy such blessing, they are also to be instruments of it as they enrich others. The story from the Fall to the Tower of Babel is that humans fail to both enjoy such blessing and to pass it on to others. What will God do ensure that his intention will indeed come to pass? That will be the subject of the next sermon.
