James: Being Prayerful

Date 26th April 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage James 5:13-20

We have come to our last message based on the brief but powerful letter of James. James has touched on many themes but now finally he comes to talk about prayer in the life of a Christian. Rather than being something we do as a last resort, prayer should be something that is as natural

James: When Is Wealth a Sin?

Date 12th April 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage James 5:1-6

Tonight we are jumping back into the book of James, picking up where we left off before our Easter series. We come to these opening verses of chapter 5 and find this powerful condemnation of rich exploiters. While James is generally blunt and direct this criticism of the behaviour of Christians throughout his letter this

My Lord and My God!

Date 12th April 2015  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage John 20:24-31

“Seeing is believing.” We are all very familiar with this statement which drives so much of what our culture believes is true and what is not. It is therefore striking to see in the New Testament that even one of Jesus’ closest followers lived by this code. One of the disciples, Thomas, absolutely refused to

Last Words: It Is Finished

Date 03rd April 2015  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage John 19:28-30

The words of an old Scottish hymn sum up well what Good Friday’s message is about: Cast your deadly “doing” down –   Down at Jesus’ feet;   Stand in Him, in Him alone,   Gloriously complete. On Friday we will consider what Jesus’ final words on the cross, ‘It if Finished’ means for our

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.

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
