Crossroads (Easter 2014) – Father forgive them

Crossroads (Easter 2014) - Father forgive them

Who would breathe a heartfelt prayer of forgiveness for their persecutors? Jesus did. He was putting his own teaching into practise, not only for the soldiers who were crucifying him, but for the humanity which had rejected him. Did these soldiers deserve forgiveness? Do We? Such a rich testimony of grave for most ugly of […]

Love Christmas: Family

Love Christmas: Family

Christmas family gatherings can be great, or they can be a nightmare: fro some, Christmas is the loneliest time ever. Jesus came to restore relationships and transform community. God is the creator and giver of relationship. He works through relationships and families to make his Kingdom visible. The challenge for the church is to create […]

Love Christmas: Food

Love Christmas: Food

Christmas is typically a time of excess and over indulgence. How do we manage our eating and drinking responsibly? Interestingly, Jesus ate and drank his way through the Gospels – so it can’t be all bad. Think about this: the wonder of food should point us to something more, something greater – our hunger for […]

Love Christmas: Rest

Love Christmas: Rest

Why holidays are great, why people love a good cruise, and why we’re never satisfied with any of it; Jesus is bringing a world where toil will be no more. When Jesus is our life! we won’t look for ultimate reward in what we do

Balance

Balance

Some think churches need to ‘build up Christians’ before they can engage in outreach and mission. Others believe that outreach is all important, and internal focus is insular and counterproductive. Jesus does not share these views. He calls his church to make disciples by baptizing and teaching. You can’t be doing one without the other. […]

Blessings of God

Blessings of God

It’s a likely story, isn’t it? …Trusting and depending on God when times are tough and we have no where else to turn, but then forgetting him when times are good and we feel we can rely on ourselves again. God knew that Israel would be prone to this in their new land of rich […]

Strong Oaks of Righteousness

Strong Oaks of Righteousness

How do we become a strong oak of righteousness, rooted and growing in Jesus? The “hollow and deceptive philosophy” of Paul’s day that was built upon mere human reasoning and basic spiritual forces is the same hollow and deceptive philosophy at work today in mere religion, new agism etc.  I show from verses 9-13 that […]

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life

Jesus said, without any hint of uncertainty, “I am the Way, and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). In an culture where exclusive claims are seen as offensive, this can be seen as one of the hardest of the ‘hard sayings’ of Jesus. It’s His way or the Highway, […]
