I Am The Light Of The World

Sermon Series - I Am

October 14, 2018

Bible Text: John 8:12-20 |

Series:

In this passage Jesus makes the claim that he is the light of the world and that only by following him can we know the light of life, or conversely, that by not following him we are lost in darkness. Jesus's claim about himself has very real and unavoidable implications for those who hear it. "Who does Jesus think he is to put us in such a position?" we might instinctively ask in defence. Well, that's precisely the point of this sermons series - who does Jesus think he is? And if his claims are true, what are the implications for us who hear them. In this passage we consider Christ's claim and his call, and discover how this is in fact good news for all who will hear and believe.

Becoming Your Best Self

Ephesians - sermon series

August 5, 2018

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

Series:

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 |

Series:

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?"
