Our Life-giving Lord

This message uses the life experience to show that the vilest sinner is able to escape the deserved judgement of God and enjoy full and free forgiveness as they turn in repentance and faith to the Lord Jesus Christ and in Him alone. Romans 6:23 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the…

Consider and Continue

This message begins by looking at the description of a life without the moorings of God’s Word, and then contrasts it with the order of a Christian life. This grows from Biblical salvation and rests on Biblical Truth. 2 Timothy 3 Godlessness in the Last Days 3 But understand this, that in the last days…

Living in the Word

This message shows the centrality of the Bible to all Christian living. As Christians we have to ‘imbibe’ it so that it becomes a part of us, teaching and changing us. Its truth is to move us to praise, worship and thankfulness. Colossians 3:1 Put On the New Self 3 If then you have been…

The Path to Glory

This message follows the theme of glory from Exodus, through the Psalms, into the Prophets and finally into heaven. Using Moses’ prayer in Ex 33:18 we see the perpetual need for the prayer, avoiding dangers connected with seeking glory until we have a picture of the essential glory of heaven. Exodus 33:18 18 Moses said,…

He still Loves

Essentially this message looks at the inevitable, but a positive place of suffering in our lives. We are to treat it seriously and find God’s strength through it, knowing that God uses it to show His love and that it will bear positive fruit in our lives. Hebrews 12:5 5 And have you forgotten the…

Let us Pray

This message focuses on Daniel’s prayer in Daniel 9 and shows that it is driven by the Bible, Focussed on God and is controlled by Shared Contrition.   Daniel 9 English Standard Version Daniel’s Prayer for His People 9 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, by descent a Mede, who was…

Look and Live

This message begins by looking at the inadequacy of human resources to deal with the issues of life, but moves on to show that our God is more than sufficient to deal with all the issues of both this life and eternity. 2 Chronicles 20:12 12 O our God, will you not execute judgment on…

To Die is Gain

This message uses 2 Cor 1 and Phil 1 to show that the Christian Life is essentially a shared life, given to us by God and lived in His presence. Here on earth, we have fellowship with God in Trinity, which is a foretaste of heaven. Philippians 1:21-23 English Standard Version 21 For to me…

Plagues and the Person Of God

This message begins by looking at God’s reaction to two events in David’s life and draws attention to the fact that we would probably assess things quite differently. We then see David as a fore-runner of Christ praying for mercy for his people and placing himself under God’s righteous judgement. It concludes by showing that…

From Restlessness to Rest

In this message we begin by looking at the effects of Godlessness of individuals and society, recognising the limits of human effort to address the issues, we then see the extent of Christ’s love and power. Ultimately we see the negative and positive response to such gracious power. Mark 5:15 English Standard Version 15 And…
