Bible Text: Romans 8:1-17 |

Series:

In this sermon we discuss the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives as Christians from Paul's teaching in Romans 8. In these verses we see that the Spirit gives us life and that he makes us children of God.

In this series, we are hoping to help instill confidence in the God of the Bible by walking through Romans chapters 5-8, seeing how Paul teaches us the great reason Jesus gives us for having great confidence in God. Your confidence in God is going to swell, because your expectations of God are going to be rightly set and your experience of God is going to match up to those expectations.

Enslaved

August 20, 2017

Bible Text: Romans 6:15-23 |

Series:

In Romans 6, Paul deals with the criticism that if God's grace in Jesus Christ is as big as he says it is, it might give Christian's license to sin. This is the fourth sermon in our Confident in Christ series. We take a look at Paul's response to this objection as we ask the questions "What do we do with the problem of ongoing indwelling sin in the life of the Christian?" and "What are our spiritual slave masters?".

In this series, we are hoping to help instill confidence in the God of the Bible by walking through Romans chapters 5-8, seeing how Paul teaches us the great reason Jesus gives us for having great confidence in God. Your confidence in God is going to swell, because your expectations of God are going to be rightly set and your experience of God is going to match up to those expectations.

Grace Abounds

August 6, 2017

Bible Text: Romans 5:12-21 |

Series:

In Romans 5, Paul speaks of the Christian's hope of glory. Many times we feel that our failings and sin are just too much too bear, often leaving us feeling very insecure in our relationship with God and our chances of every seeing His promised glory. In this passage, Paul shows us that even though our problem of sin is actually greater than we often realise, the redemptive grace he offers us in Jesus Christ is greater still - and the only real basis for our confidence as Christians.

In this series, we are hoping to help instill confidence in the God of the Bible by walking through Romans chapters 5-8, seeing how Paul teaches us the great reason Jesus gives us for having great confidence in God. Your confidence in God is going to swell, because your expectations of God are going to be rightly set and your experience of God is going to match up to those expectations.

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.
