Deuteronomy 4:44-6:9 God has initiated an exclusive covenant relationship with Israel, grounded in his undeserved love for them. Fundamental to Israel’s response to God will be the need for them to listen, to love and to obey. This will shape every aspect of their life of worship and their life as a community together. The same is true for us, this side of the cross.
1 Peter 4:7-11 In light of the fact that “the end of all things is near” (1 Peter 4:7), how should the church live? In these verses, Peter casts a vision of a church that is ready for Jesus to return. A ready church is praying, loving and serving.
Deuteronomy 4:1-43 Just as it was for the Israelites, our covenant relationship with God is a stunning privilege! This relationship is wonderfully unique because the Lord our God, who we worship and adore is the one true God. And it is this relationship that transforms both our living and our eternity.
1 Peter 3:13-4:6 Suffering as Christians is inevitable, but how we respond, in both word and action, is crucial. Our response should not be characterised by fear of the world, but shaped by Christ – the one who suffered for us to pay for our sins, and the one who reigns and rules and Lord over all.

Acts 16 How did God get your attention and show you that you needed Jesus? For the Philippian gaoler, it required an earthquake! As we celebrate baptisms together, let us consider how his story can encourage and challenge us.
