Emphasising the right notes

Colossians 1:15-23 In this passage, Paul magnifies the Lord Jesus! He is supreme in both creation and redemption, and through faith in him we become the beneficiaries of his great act of redemption. These great truths should utterly transform us such that Christ should have first place in every aspect of our lives and in his church.

Jesus’ prayer for you

John 17:20-26 We usually know what we want for ourselves, and what we really want most is often revealed in what we pray for. But what does Jesus really want for us? Jesus’ prayer in John 17:20-26 is, in many ways, our answer to this question, and it may surprise us.

Romans 11:1-10 Part 3 of Paul’s argument in Romans 9-11. God’s grace to obstinate Israel is seen in his preserving a remnant. This message reminds us that at the heart of the gospel is grace – God’s kindness to undeserving sinners.

Responding to grace

Romans 9:30-10:21 If God has taken the initiative in bringing salvation by grace, through faith, in Christ, how should we respond to God’s sovereign, electing grace? Beginning with Israel’s wrong response, the Apostle Paul encourages us to both believe and to proclaim the gospel message.
