The LORD has spoken

Isaiah 1:1-31This message begins a new series from the book of Isaiah, apart from the Psalms, the longest in the Old Testament. Of all the OT books, Isaiah most clearly points us to Christ and the gospel of God’s saving grace. As a prophet Isaiah’s task was to declare faithfully and courageously what God was saying to the people of Jerusalem and Judah …. and to us today. In this message we see the LORD exposing three key areas of…

What difference does knowing Jesus make?

John 15:1-17 When Jesus calls us to follow Him, He is calling us to a changed life, and this process of change the Bible calls holiness (or sanctification). Because of ingrained sin and its devious influence, there is always work for the Holy Spirit to do in us in order to “conform us to the image of Christ” (Romans 8:29).

Ready for the fight

Ephesians 6:10-24 There are many different ways of describing the Christian life (think ‘lying down in green pastures’, running a long distance race, working out in a gym), but in today’s message Paul describes it as a full-on battle. Why? Because we have a very formidable enemy in the the devil and his team looking for every opportunity to bring us down. He is clever, crafty and powerful, and will use the most devious tactics against us. He knows our…
