Sunday Morning

Who’s in charge here?

Romans 6:15-23 In this second half of Romans 6, Paul reminds us that we have been set free from slavery to sin (which leads to death) and become slaves to righteousness (which leads to eternal life) – and so we must now offer ourselves in service to God.

Shall we go on sinning?

Romans 6:1-14 We’ve all asked, or been asked this age-old question in one form or another: If forgiveness comes to me solely by the undeserved grace of God, does it matter how I live? Can I just go on sinning? Paul emphatically states that being a believer makes a decisive difference to one’s relationship to sin, and he gives us three reasons based on what has been done to us as we are united to Christ in his death and…

Look to Jesus and be saved

John 3:1-17 As we listen in on this surprising conversation between Nicodemus and Jesus, some profound truths are revealed for us about how we can have eternal life. We must undergo a spiritual re-birth, made possible only by trusting in Jesus death on the cross. And even more astounding is that all this is an act of God’s incredible love for a world full of rebels.

The Story of the World

Romans 5:12-21 The story of the world is the story of two humanities. In Adam, all sin and are under the reign of death, but through Christ, we reign through grace.

Romans 5:1-11 Paul turns from the theme of justification (chapters 1-4 of Romans) to begin his exposition of the great privileges that belong to the one who has been justified by faith in Christ. Today we are reminded that we have:1. Peace with God (1-2)2. Hope that will never let us down (2b-8)3. Certainty that we will be saved from God’s wrath Peace, hope and certainty. Contemplating these can only lead to rejoicing in God! (v11)

The Gospel Unchained

Philippians 1:12-30 Paul’s focus on the gospel gave him a completely different perspective even though he was in prison in chains. Sharing Paul’s heart ‘to live is Christ and to die is gain’ will enable us to share his focus for the world.

A Life of Sacrifice

2 Corinthians 5:11-6:2 God calls us to live radical lives of sacrifice in service to Him. In this passage, we see two key reasons why anybody would choose to give their whole life for the cause of Christ

The weak life of gospel service

2 Corinthians 4:1-18 Increasingly, in our society, the gospel is being rejected and the experience of the Christian is one of weakness. As the Apostle Paul speaks about how his life of service has been shaped by the gospel, we are encourage to not lose heart, but instead to live gospel-shaped lives that reveal God’s glory and power.

The parable of the Ten virgins

Matthew 25:1-13 The Parable of the Ten Virgins reminds us that Jesus will return one day, suddenly and unexpectedly, and when he does we need to be ready! Are you ready? Are you staying ready? These are the questions we need to ask ourselves as we explore this parable together.

Surprised by Grace – The Workers in the Vineyard

Matthew 20:1-16 Is God fair? We want fairness, but what we need more than fairness is God’s grace. The parable of the Workers in the Vineyard, makes us feel quite uncomfortable as we are confronted with the way God, in his perfect wisdom and divine sovereignty, chooses to exercise his grace in saving people.

The Prodigal Son

Luke 15 In this chapter Jesus outlines three parables which teach us about the nature of repentance in the Kingdom of God

You’re invited!

Luke 14:1-24 People make all kinds of excuses for refusing to accept Jesus. In the Parable of the Great Banquet, Jesus shows us that unless we accept him, we will never eat at the great banquet in the kingdom of God. We’re all invited. But will we be there? It all depends on how we respond to Jesus.
