Becoming Your Best Self

Ephesians - sermon series

August 5, 2018

Bible Text: Ephesians 4:17-5:2 |


In the second half of Ephesians 4 we see Paul picking up on the theme he introduced in verse 1 - "to live a life worthy of the calling you have received". In the first half of the chapter he speaks about Christian unity. As he continues in this passage he shifts his focus to Christian purity. In this talk we think about why and how Christians change as we consider Paul's two main emphases of knowing who you are in Christ, and then being who you are in Christ.

The True and Greater Israel

Ancient Grace - sermon series

March 18, 2018

Bible Text: Luke 4:1-13 |


This sermon is the fifth in our series Ancient Grace.

Where does the story of Jesus start in the Bible? How you answer that question is going to shape the way you read and understand most of your Bible, particularly the Old Testament. The contention of this sermon series, Ancient Grace, is that the whole Bible, even the Old Testament is actually all about Jesus - about God's grace to us in sending us a Saviour to save us from our sin.

In this sermon we consider Jesus' temptation in the wilderness in Luke chapter 4. Cast against the backdrop of Israel's wilderness wanderings in Deuteronomy, and knowing how they fared in their testings there, the obvious question is how will Jesus respond? As we reflect on the tests he faced and the resistance that he offers, we find our answer to the question "Is he really the true and greater Israel?"
