Why did Jesus Suffer and Die?

Date 27th October 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 1 Peter 2:13-25

We probably don’t think much about death; we certainly don’t like talking about it. We also don’t talk much about the death of Jesus except around Easter, but we should do so more often.

Elijah: Dare We Trust in God

Date 27th October 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 1 Kings 17:7-24

Date 06th October 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 1 Kings 16:29-17:6

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
