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. In the Apostles’ Creed the church confesses: ‘We believe in Jesus Christ…who suffered under Pontius Pilate; and was crucified, dead and

Elijah: Dare We Trust in God

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

“Everything in the universe is either caused by God or allowed by God, and there is no third category.” That’s a hugely important statement made by Tony Evans. What sparks in your mind when you hear this? So many times we look at a heart-breaking situation and wish there was a third category, “Bad things

Jesus, Christ, Son, Lord

Date 13th October 2013  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage John 1:1-14

“What has happened in the West is that his [Jesus] impact over the centuries has been so felt that the ethos and moral impetus of his message has changed the course of Western civilisation.” There is little doubt by most people that this claim by Ravi Zacharias is accurate. There is more doubt, however over

Elijah: Our Unlikely God

Date 13th October 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Luke 4:14-30; 1 Kings 17:7-16

An oxymoron is a figure of speech that combines two normally contradictory terms. It’s an oxymoron that God informs Elijah that a widow would provide for him. It reminds us that so often God’s ways seem strange to us. We do not always understand what he is doing. This is so true as we continue

Elijah: Witness Protection

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

We continue the series on Elijah. God withdraws Elijah into “witness protection”. How does this relate to us today?

We have been dipping in and out of Mark’s gospel for some time. We left it last time, just before the Triumphal entry. We pick it up again, with the teaching of Jesus through the last week of His earthly life, the time between Palm Sunday and His crucifixion. Jesus packs a lot of activity

We may often be faced with some common hang-ups with the authority of the Bible when it comes to why we believe what we believe. Who hasn’t heard these sorts of remarks: “Why believe something that was written so long ago?” “Times have changed, move on.” “Can we believe that what was said and done

He Gave His Only-Begotten Son

Over against the war-scarred, sin-strangled world, let us reflect on the wonder of wonders in the text of texts. The measure of love is always its willingness to give; its capacity for sacrifice. In giving Christ, God gives us all things in Him. He leaves the throne of heaven for a stable in Bethlehem and
