Bible Text: Psalm 23:1-6 |

Series:

Psalm 23 has been a comfort to many people through the ages. As we listen to the Psalm again, there are three things we need to listen for through the familiarity of the words if we are to experience the true power and comfort of its words.

As we read the Psalm we need to see:
- the true nature and identity of the Shepherd,
- the true nature of his provision, and
- the true nature of our need.

Weighed and found wanting

February 12, 2017

Bible Text: Daniel 5:1-31 |

Series:

This is the fifth sermon in our six-part sermon series entitled Inside the Lion's Den. We've been looking at what it means to live faithfully as a Christian in a world that doesn't seem to follow God's agenda.

In this talk we see that God is in control over all the kings of the world and the forces that seemingly shape our lives, and listen to what that teaches us about our response to God and our circumstances as we follow him in this world.

The Worshipper

July 24, 2016

Bible Text: Romans 11:33-36 |

Series:

The 4th century North African Bishop, Augustine of Hippo once wrote:

"[God] himself is the source of our bliss, he himself the goal of all our striving … so that in reaching him we may find our rest, and attain our happiness because we have achieved our fulfilment in him."

Any attempt to journey towards a level of greater maturity and grow in the Christian faith must start with you first becoming a worshipper of God. In your heart of hearts, the lights need to go on - you need to see Him as your "source of bliss" above all else. In this first sermon in our series, "The Complete Christian", we explore what it means to worship God in our heart of hearts. Listen in as we look particularly at Paul's great doxology at the end of Romans 11, trying to discern the characteristics of God that make him alone the object of supreme Christian worship.

The people around Jesus (The Prodigal God 1)

January 26, 2014

Bible Text: Luke 15:1-10 |

Series:

Luke 15 begins with the religious leaders noticing something—that Jesus seems to attract and befriend “tax collectors and sinners,” moral outcasts of respectable society. We read in verse 2 that they “mutter” to one another about this. We can almost imagine them saying: “He welcomes sinners! This kind of person never comes to our meetings. This must be because he is telling them what they want to hear. He is not calling them to repent or change.” In response, Jesus tells them three parables. By listening carefully to all three parables, and especially to the last one, traditionally called The Parable of the Prodigal Son, Jesus challenges his listeners’ fundamental assumptions about God, sin, and salvation. He gives them an entirely new way of thinking about God, themselves, and the whole world. In this message we look at the first two of these parables.
