Loving through Proverbs – Pt2

Lyndon spoke about Loving through Proverbs. Proverbs 4:10-23 is about how to live your life.  It is broken into 2 parts: How to live through Righteousness and for God and A warning against wickedness and evil. We are in a world of evil.  We come under a metron – a sphere of influence, that if we are not aware of  it we can wonder why its happening.  Proverbs tells us beware of the wicked man and we must listen to wisdom. 1…

Amongst Giants – Pt5

This week Lyndon spoke part five in the series Amongst Giants. Joshua – Facing our Fear (Giant slayers) Joshua took over from Moses, he took the Israelites into the promised land. Life will have things that will challenge us. If we bow to the fear that stops us we become its servant. Meaning of Giant: an imaginary or mythical being of human form but of super human size. Numbers 13:17-20 tells of the Israelites failure to enter the promised land.…

Let your setbacks become your comebacks

This week Lyndon spoke about Letting your setbacks become your comebacks. In Mark 14:54 After Jesus was arrested, Peter is said to be following Jesus at a distance.  A dangerous place to be.  Till this point Peter was right there with Jesus.  He was one of the 3 Jesus spent time with.  He was called the Rock and yet here we find him following at a distance.  The place of comfort to be with Jesus became uncomfortable.  We are however, needing to be…

Philippians 2

This week Lyndon spoke from Philippians Ch 2. It is all about Humility and Honour. God finds joy in like mindedness, being one in spirit, with the same goal. Humility is the foundation to honour. Without humility we hold no honour. Real humility comes from surrender. We need to get out of the way and let it be ONLY JESUS. We need to think of heaven in terms of coming down a funnel (A funnel from Heaven), where the top end…

Ephesians – 4

On Sunday Lyndon spoke on Basketball… No it was Ephesians 4. Eph 4 is broken up into 4 areas: Walking in Unity v1-6. The key to this is found in v3. “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” The goal of unity is taking something that starts like mishmash to getting it together. Spiritual Gifts v7 & 8. We need to keep our eyes up. Honour the leadership, encourage one another, celebrate…

A Difference Maker – The Son

This week Lyndon spoke on the second part of the Difference Maker series – The Son. Matt 1:20 An angel appears to Joseph to put him at peace about the coming Son.  Jesus was sent at the perfect time.  When Jesus arrived Spiritual Leadership had sinful Kings ruling, the Church leaders were proud and ruled it over the people (until Jesus showed them up), and there was a Spiritual hunger/dryness (hence the crowds followed Jesus).  Jesus showed how to be a Difference Maker, He changed…

Having Hope

Lyndon spoke about Hope on Sunday. We can’t live without hope.  We were told we can hope/dream again if we lose it. Hope is something that is always out in front of us, something good.  We don’t need to be afraid, God knows what’s ahead.  He knows the next season.  Hope deferred makes us sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.  Proverbs 13:12.  We never want to catch up to Hope because that becomes dark.  Hope must always be out…

The Presence of God

Lyndon brought us a sermon on the Presence of God starting with Ps 139:1-7.  Verse 7 says “Where can I go from your Spirit?  Where can I flee from your presence?”  Indeed, where?  We do not want to do church without God.  Everyone wanted to be with Jesus.   Because when we are near Jesus we will see things.  Being around Jesus upsets the normal life, it causes a response or reaction from those around us. Jesus promised us the Holy Spirit who is…
