Journey to Jesus – Pt6

Rob spoke ACT 6 of the Journey to Jesus series – The final word. Rev 1:4 & 5: “Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.“  How much would our lives change if this was what was at the back…

Journey to Jesus – Pt5

On Sunday Warren spoke on ACT 5 of the Journey to Jesus series – spreading the news of the king.  Jesus teaches us to love one another – the gospels tell us how to live as Christians (they deal with debt, pride, forgiveness etc)  We are told to love one another, to look out for the other person all the time. How we live is the gospel – churches that love one another are strong. The commands of Jesus are to…

Journey to Jesus – Pt4

Ps Andre brought us ACT 4 – The coming of the King.  The Jewish people had three ideas of who Jesus would be: A powerful politician Would perform miracles against Israel’s enemies  and A Commander. But Jesus came in humble circumstances and as a servant.  The three ways the people thought he would be were actually the three ways the devil tempted Jesus with.  The Jewish mind set was on a conquering Messiah – focused on self.  Are we blind…

Understanding yourself in Christ

Ps Garth Chin Poy, from City Church spoke on “Understanding who you are in Christ”. Our identity, culture and who we are really matter.  We have been crucified with Christ.  Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.  Who we are is about this God that has a full love for us.  A fullness not measured by something full, but overflowing.  The full measure of God is OVERFLOW. If we know who we are in Christ, other stuff wont…

Journey to Jesus – Pt3

Warren brought us ACT 3 of the Journey to Jesus series. The Choice – To follow God or to follow self (using the examples of Cain & Abel) The Consequence of Sin – Judgement of deliverance (example of Noah 6:13) God didn’t abandon Cain, he didn’t abandon Noah, and he won’t abandon us either. Faith in God – Blessed to be a blessing. (Abraham) God taught Abraham to trust.  Trust God, God will see you through. If God is for…

Journey to Jesus – Pt1

Ps Andre started a new series – Journey to Jesus, inspired by the book, ‘The drama of scripture’ by Craig Bartholomew & Michael Goheen.  Being a follower of Jesus should change your world view.  Whether you believe it or not the story of Christianity is public truth. ACT 1 of a Journey to Jesus is God establishes the kingdom through creation.  Right at the very beginning of the Word there is the maker (in the Trinity) saying “let us make…

Fruit of the Spirit – Wrap up

Andre summed up the last few weeks sermons. Love – should leak, it implies overflow and it should be different from the worlds love because it is undeserved. Peace – is about the presence of God NOT the absence of strife. Kindness – We need to be kind to ourselves and model good health. Self – Control – is a weapon.  If we don’t have control of ourselves, then someone else will. Goodness – flies in the face of world…

Fruit of the Spirit – Patience

Ps Andre spoke the last Fruit of the Spirit – Patience. Not sure about the rest of you but not my favourite thing.  The key verses being in James 5:7-12.  We were told the sermon would cover 2 questions: What does patience do in my life? A pearl comes out of aggravation, to a clam, through time.  Often we want the pearl but we don’t want the process. Do you wait well? Joyce Meyer’s puts it this way “Patience is not…

Fruit of the Spirit – Self Control

Rob reminded us that there is a battle going on and one of our weapons is self-control.  Gal 5:16 says we are to live by the spirit.  God invites us to battle, but He is still involved – He builds self-control in us.  Think about it, self-control is central to many things.  God is for us, He is at work in us.   Our very lives are a work of God, so give the control of an area of life to God that you…

Fruit of the Spirit – Kindness

Phil makes two key points: Who? Who should we be kind to? Choice.  Make a choice to be kind. Who? Health We need to be kind to ourselves – we need to model good health Peace in spite of what is going on Be good to yourself in good times and bad Be kind to our bodies (steward it well) Be in the word – if you don’t eat you don’t grow Family Continually be kind to each other You…

Fruit of the Spirit – Peace

Warren spoke on PEACE as our next Fruits of the Spirit.  He spoke that Peace is about the presence of God, not the absence of strife (in God’s hands you are safe).  There were 5 points he made: The presence of God changes us – God is over us. God has every detail of my life in His hands.  Comfort brings strength. God is creator and father, and this brigs peace. – We all get troubles and trails, but the presence…
