Sunday Morning

Devoted to Prayer

Acts 2 and others On Pentecost Sunday, we begin a week of praying for revival. But what are we praying for when we pray for revival? We seek that God would do (1) His ordinary work (2) in an extraordinary way (3) that affects an entire community.

Covenant blessings and curses

Deuteronomy 26:1-29:1 Having spelled out the stipulations of the covenant between Israel and God, Moses now outlines the consequences of their adherence, or non-adherence to the law. Life in the Promised Land ought to be one of blessing and flourishing, but it could go very badly if they fail to fulfill their covenant obligations. Praise God that Christ has taken the curse of sin from us, by faith in his death for us.

A life well lived

Proverbs 31 Proverbs 31 presents to us a picture, not only of a strong woman and excellent wife, but an idealised example of wisdom lived out and applied in daily life. We are being wooed away from a life of folly and to a life of wisdom. We are called to marry wisdom – holding her tight and allowing her to shape every part of our lives, and ultimately allowing her to point us to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Justice and Justice Alone

Deuteronomy 16-21 Moses outlines the kind of leaders that God’s people will need if they are to maintain their distinctiveness from the nations. These leaders are responsible for ensuring that truth, justice and righteousness prevail in the land. Ultimately, these ideal leaders point us towards Jesus, the most just Judge, righteous King, true Prophet and faithful Priest.

Confidence about our future

1 Corinthians 15 By the empty tomb, God declares loudly and eternally his great triumph over sin and death and Satan! Jesus’ resurrection is the proof of everything that his death had achieved. It gives us certainty about our future, that we who have trusted Christ will also be resurrected to eternal life. Knowing this should radically transform our lives between now and then.

No longer condemned

Various; Romans 3:20-26 We need Easter to be true because we stand condemned as unrighteous sinners. Through Christ’s death on our behalf, God puts our sin on Jesus and gives us the righteousness of Christ. We are no longer condemned! This is truly excellent news, that not only brings us joy but is worth sharing!

Joyful Worship

Deuteronomy 12-16 As the nation of Israel prepares to enter the land promised to them by Yahweh, Moses reveals to them various laws for righteous living that they must abide by. While a bit strange at first glance, these laws have much to teach us about worship. Specifically, who we are to worship, where worship takes place, and how we are to worship.

By Grace Alone

Deuteronomy 9:1-11:32 Once in the Promised Land, Israel would be tempted to boast that they had somehow earned the blessings they were experiencing. Moses warns the people against such boasting, reminding them of the ways they have sinned. If they deserve anything, it’s God’s judgement. The land, then, is given by grace. They receive blessing not because of their righteousness, but in spite of their unrighteousness. We are no different. Once dead in our sin, we are now blessed through…

A tale of two sinners

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…
