Mysterious Wise Men – NO SERMON

Date 22nd December 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 2:1-12

As we continue to look at the characters of Christmas the focus on Sunday turns to the Magi, those mysterious Wiseman from the east. Oh the questions we would love to ask them: Who were they? Where did they come from? Were they astrologers? How did they know about the Star? Unfortunately a lot of

The Shepherds – NO SERMON

Date 22nd December 2013  by John Van Dijk - Elder  Bible passage Luke 2:8-20

As we are looking at the characters of Christmas there are some very obvious favourites. Of course Mary & Joseph play a very significant role and the birth of Jesus is the focus of the Christmas story. And the wise men from the East are very significant. And then there are the Shepherds, they do

John the Baptist

Date 15th December 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Luke 1: 8-25; 57-66

We don’t often think of John the Baptist when thinking of Christmas. He doesn’t appear in the Christmas pageants or in our Carols yet Luke starts his gospel with a whole lot of the first chapter dedicated to the account of his extraordinary birth. Why? This account of Zechariah, Elizabeth and John provide the context

Joseph – The Forgotten Man of Christmas

Date 08th December 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 1: 18-25; 2:13-23

In the lead up to Christmas we are focussing on the characters of Christmas. This afternoon we are looking at Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never really given Joseph much thought before. The truth is that we know very little about him. Joseph is very much a

In the passage, Jesus is asking the important question, ‘What do you think about the Christ?’ For the Teachers of the Law to answer this question would radically alter everything in their lives. It would have changed their entire world view. It would have changed their associations and friendships. It would have affected their families

The Cost of Worship

At first glance it appears that this passage in Mark is about sacrificial giving; that the widow who gave two small copper coins is giving so much more out of her poverty than the rich are giving out of their abundance and so we too should give sacrificially like the widow. However, in a closer

Watch and Be Ready

Mark 13 is a difficult chapter to grab hold of as it is full of Old Testament ideas and images and Jesus intertwines two strands of teaching into one. What we can know is that there are three things which give us encouragement. First, Jesus forewarned us that things would happen; God is not surprised.

Gospel Truth

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

Waste or Worship?

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
