Sermons from April 2021
Romans 2:1-29 Having established the universal need for the gospel at the end of chapter 1, Paul now addresses the self-righteous religious types in his readership, reminding them of the impartiality of God’s judgement. Like everyone else, the fundamental need even of morally ‘clean’ people, is repent of their sins and allow the Spirit of God to do his work of regeneration in us as we believe the gospel.
Judges 6-8 We can learn from Gideon’s story at two levels. When we look at Gideon the warrior, we see how God taught this weak man lessons about God’s presence, promises and power, before using him to deliver God’s people. But when we look at Gideon the worshipper, we see a man who failed miserably, leading God’s people to worship foreign gods rather than the one true God. From here, things only get worse for God’s people.
