The Self-Revealing God

Psalm 19 Can we really know God? Psalm 19 says that we can, not by our own initiative, but because God reveals himself to us. He does this in creation and in his Word. Jesus comes as the pinnacle of God’s revelation of himself, and also as the model servant who responds to the God who creates and redeems.

A personal relationship

Psalm 63 What does it mean for us to have a personal relationship with God? In Psalm 63 we hear David express his thirst for God, his delight in God and his confidence in God. Through Christ, we can experience, express and enjoy our relationship with God in the same kind of way.

The Church

1 Thessalonians 1:1-3 We begin our new series in 1 Thessalonians by thinking about the church. What is the church? These verses remind us that the church is the local, gathered people of God, alive in Christ and marked by three essential Christian traits – faith, love and hope.

Jonah’s problem with God

Jonah 4:1-11 Throughout the book of Jonah we encounter a troubled man. And even after God had spared his life and his “successful” ministry to Nineveh, he is still angry with God. But why? In this message we take an honest look into the heart of this reluctant prophet and see the selfish biases that made him so miserable. Ultimately he had a wrong view of God. He wanted judgement on the Ninevites (which Jonah himself deserved) but mercy for…

Out of the depths

Jonah 1:17-2:10 Distress, deliverance, dedication. This is the pattern of every salvation story. Jonah 2 teaches us that to understand God’s grace we must accept the reality of our distress and that only God can deliver us. Such a gracious deliverance ought to lead to our dedication. May we be like Jonah who says, “I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the LORD.’ “

Nothing in my hand I bring

Luke 18:9-14 We all can be tempted to believe that our spiritual high achieving might make us acceptable to God. But Jesus’ parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector reminds us that only those who come to God empty-handed are accepted by him.

Running from God

Jonah 1:1-4 Jonah reminds us that we cannot outrun God. Going our own way only ever leads to disappointment, brokenness and trouble. The storms of life call us back to God, back to trusting him and serving him.

Come and See

John 1:43-51Nathanael was searching for the one who would set things right for Israel, but when Philip announces that they’ve found this one, he doubts. This story shows us what evangelism in a world of seekers and sceptics requires, both from us and from Jesus.

The all-powerful God

Isaiah 40:25-31One of the most common names for God in the Bible is ‘Almighty God’. But what does that mean? In this message we explore this aspect of God’s divine nature. With a word He can create the universe. He controls the galaxies, overthrows armies, suspends the laws of nature, and oversees every detail of our daily lives. And He has absolute power over sin, death and hell, as he has shown through Christ. Nothing is too difficult for Him.…
