Acts: Grace at Work

Date 27th March 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Acts 15:1-35

The good news of Jesus is good news of God’s grace (unmerited favour) to sinners and the church. But this week in Acts we are going to come to two challenges to that grace, both in the forms of how it applies to individuals, and how it operates in the church. And we’ll see that

Acts: The World is a Different Place

Date 20th March 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Acts 13:16-48

Isn’t it amazing that good news can both exciting and scary all at the same time? Like when you first hear that you are having a baby, or that you have been offered your first job, or that the offer on your first home has been accepted. Its both incredibly exciting, and somewhat terrifying all

Acts: Breaking Barriers

Date 13th March 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Acts 10:1-11

There are few things worse than being written off. Too slow. Too old. Too young. Too inexperienced. These labels put a barrier up and are all about exclusion. As we go through the book of Acts we have been seeing that when it comes to the gospel, what once were barriers, are barriers no more.

Dealing with Division: Every family knows the reality of difficulties and friction. It seems to be whenever you get people living together in close proximity there are bound to be some issues. The same is true in the church, even in the early church. This Sunday we come to Acts 6:1-7, which has the potential,

Acts: On Fire, Under Fire

Date 06th March 2011  by David Groenenboom  Bible passage Acts 5:12-42

On Fire, Under Fire. One of the challenges about reading Acts is coming face to face with the sheer amount of opposition the people faced. This passage is another point of tension – to put it mildly – between the NT church and the leaders of the Jewish faith. Amazing things happen, and God is

In Romans last week we were reminded that the gospel is God’s power to bring salvation to all people. As we speak it to other, God will transform lives. Not only will people change their destination (hell to heaven), but God will change the way they live. The question is, why is that such good

This week we begin a short series looking at some of the big truths the Bible teaches us about God. Perhaps one of the most well known, but not always well understood truths is that God exists as Trinity, three in one. But why is that even important? Sure the Bible tells us, but does
