Luke 8:22-25 In this powerful demonstration of his authority over nature, Jesus asserts his claim as the Creator of all things. The question is: Can we put our trust in him who has complete control in all situations?
Colossians 1:15-23 In this passage, Paul magnifies the Lord Jesus! He is supreme in both creation and redemption, and through faith in him we become the beneficiaries of his great act of redemption. These great truths should utterly transform us such that Christ should have first place in every aspect of our lives and in his church.
Luke 10: 25-37
John 17:20-26 We usually know what we want for ourselves, and what we really want most is often revealed in what we pray for. But what does Jesus really want for us? Jesus’ prayer in John 17:20-26 is, in many ways, our answer to this question, and it may surprise us.
Luke 7:36-50 At a baptism, we see a person publicly declare their love for Christ. Why does someone do this? Indeed, why does anyone “go public” with their faith, whether in baptism, or simply by publicly living for Jesus in daily life? Because they know, like the woman in our story, that through Jesus, their many sins have been forgiven.

Galatians 3:23-29 Whether or not we speak in these terms, every human being is on a search for our “true self.” But the Bible makes it clear that our search will always be futile while we remain disconnected from God. The key to discovering our true self is to understand who we are in Christ. In him, we truly find ourselves.
Luke 7:36-50 Someone said there are only two types of people in this world: sinners who admit it and sinners who don’t. Whatever our lives look like, the one great certainty is that we all ‘fall short of God’s glory’ and we all need God’s forgiveness. But do we realise that? It’s very possible to have a ‘holier-than-thou’ attitude like the Pharisee in the story, and miss the overflowing joy that comes when we appreciate how much we owe to…
Ephesians 1:15-23 In this prayer that opens the book of Ephesians, Paul highlights that Christians need to embrace a grateful attitude towards prayer, pray we may have this assurance of hope in Christ, and pray that we may be strengthened by God’s mighty power.
