Living in the Light of Christ’s Return

Date 25th March 2012  by Wayne Crouch - Pastor for Bray Park Community Church  Bible passage 1 Peter 4:7-11

When the time is short things get urgent and I have also noticed they get simplified. There is something about the shortness of time that adds urgency and simplicity. In 1 Peter 4:11 Peter says, “The end of all things is near.” In the light of this “any moment” view of Christs return, Peter say

John’s Heritage

Date 25th March 2012  by Joshua Hartog - Pastor for Westside Christian Church  Bible passage Luke 1:5-25

Luke begins his Gospel not with Jesus’ birth, or Jesus’ baptism, but with John the Baptist. John prepared the way for Jesus, but who exactly is John, what made him so special? Part of that answer lies with the heritage that John received from his parents, Zechariah and Elizabeth. As we look at John’s heritage

Downward Mobility

Date 18th March 2012  by John Hoogenhout - Pastor for Bray Park Community Church  Bible passage John 13:1-17

Downward Mobility is a strange concept to promote in our day and age. We live in a world where status-seeking is not just accepted, it is commended! You would be considered ‘odd’ if you intentionally sought to reduce your status or position in society. However, Jesus teaches that status-seekers deceive themselves. Join us at 5.00pm

From Rich Fools to Generous Children

Date 11th March 2012  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Luke 12:13-34

One of our biggest concerns in life – if not the biggest – is setting ourselves up as early as possible to be financially secure and ensure that we have an enjoyable – and hopefully early – retirement. And while there is nothing wrong with making responsible and appropriate provision for the future, God’s people

Power in a Pot

Date 04th March 2012  by Bevan Burnes - Elder  Bible passage 2 Cor 3:18 - 4:10

What does it mean to live a real authentic Christian life? The New York Times asked the founder of McDonald’s what he believed in. “God, my family and McDonald’s hamburgers,” he replied, but then added, “and when I get to the office, I reverse the order.” His apparently facetious comment masks an ironic truth: For

In a world where the very idea of truth is questioned and claims to know the truth are seen as arrogance, it’s possible to downplay the importance of gospel truth. Sure the truth of the basic gospel matters, but how much beyond that? But the Bible is clear, truth matters. Why does it matter? And

In the midst of hatred and betrayal Mark records and act of simple and costly devotion. Sensing where the life of Jesus was headed and being unable to alter that course in an act of love and faith she did what she could for Jesus. The question that is drawn out from the passage is
