One Great God, Many Servants

Date 21st July 2019  by JK  Bible passage Exodus 19

God has set a divine appointment to meet with his chosen people, Israel. He has carefully planned and orchestrated their salvation so that they might know Him. They have heard His messenger Moses, they have seen his mighty hand in Egypt, they have tasted his provision in the desert, and now after all they have

How To Get Along – Part 1

Date 21st July 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 14:1-12

In the first section of Romans Paul lays out the beautiful truth of the gospel. The gospel is certain and clear and it must be carefully guarded because the gospel is God’s power to save. If we mess up the gospel, we make it harder for people to know God. However, not everything is so

Love in the Last Days

Date 14th July 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 13:8-14

In these verses Paul returns to the subject of love. This may seem a little odd given in 12:9-21 he already described what transformed love looks like. However, here he seems to want us to understand how the law relates to love and encourage us not to give up on showing love. There will be

One Great God, Many Servants

Date 07th July 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Exodus 18

As we come to Exodus 18, we are on the cusp of God revealing himself to His people in a spectacular way. He will appear before them on Mt Sinai and give them the Law; the way they should live with the God who rescued them. Just before this we have seen that rescue as

The Lordship of Christ in Government

Date 07th July 2019  by Bill Berends  Bible passage Psalm 2 & Romans 13:1-7

Must we always submit to our government, even when leadership is poor and decisions are made that go contrary to the Christian worldview? What, if anything, makes Christian citizens different from non-Christian citizens?

The Fight

Date 30th June 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Exodus 17:8-16

As the Israelites continue their journey through the wilderness for the first time they come to a place where they have to fight. How will they do that with no standing army? But this is not a fight they need to do on their own. The Lord is with them, and that is seen in

Transformed Love

Date 30th June 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 12:9-21

A few weeks ago we began our examination of a new section of Romans. Paul is explaining how the gospel should shape our lives. No longer should we conform to the pattern of the world, rather we long to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, so we can live in a way that

Hungering for Righteousness

Date 23rd June 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Matthew 5:6

This Sunday evening we are hosting young people from other Reformed Churches in our state and so we return to the ‘Beatitudes’. ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.’ It is an awesome promise. Jesus offers to fill us with righteousness, but what is that? And do we

Proper Thinking

Date 23rd June 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Romans 12:1-8

Last week, with Pastor Jono, we looked at the general principle of being living sacrifices; to be transformed in thinking and behaviour so we no longer conform to wrong cultural norms. Now Paul, in Romans, follows that up with specific applications. He is giving some specific ideas and concrete ways in which we can carry

Water and War in the Wilderness

Date 16th June 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Exodus 17:1-15

What is the Bible about? The redemptive story of God, from creation to glorification. It is about Jesus, the central character in the redemptive story. It is the overwhelming revelation of God’s provision. It is, certainly in the Old Testament, the recurring doubt and disbelief of a people and the unrelenting, miraculous provision for God’s

In Vain?

“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain.” So begins psalm 127. But what does that mean for us? Does it mean we shouldn’t try? Does it mean we need a special word from God before we do anything? How can one live with this principle in mind? That is what we

What is a Disciple?

Date: 03 February 2019, 10:02 by Load Audio & Video

What is a disciple? Why would we even want to use that word? It’s not a common one in Australia. The reality is the word disciple helps to capture what it means to be a follower of Jesus. It’s easy, in a way (though perhaps unpopular) to slap the label ‘Christian’ on ourselves, but what

Licence to Sin?

Date: 03 March 2019, 10:03 by Load Audio & Video

Last week Pastor Jono spoke about how Christ has set us free and so we are to see ourselves as dead to sin and alive to God. We were challenged to not go back to the slums, nor live like we are still part of it. Paul is continuing this train of thought, again, asking

Redemption’s Song

Date: 27 January 2019, 18:01 by Load Audio & Video

The person who stands amazed at God’s willingness to forgive understands their own sinfulness and the extent of God’s ‘unfailing love’. That’s the Christian message of hope. There is hope for the hurting; there is hope for the hopeless; there is hope for the sinner. When you cry out for mercy, the Lord will hear
