Who Is the Lord?

Date 27th September 2015  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Exodus 5:1-9

A few months ago we preached through Exodus chapters 1-4. Having taken a break from that series we are now resuming to preach through to chapter 7 before we start a Christmas series (yes, it is indeed hard to believe that we are already approaching Christmas stuff!). In v. 2 of Sunday night’s passage Pharaoh,

Mark: Jesus in a Box

Date 27th September 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Mark 6:1-6

In Mark 6:6, we have this amazing statement that should cause us to stop in our tracks, “And he [Jesus] was amazes at their lack of faith.” The context is the unbelief in him and the offense at him of the people in his home town of Nazareth. It is a sobering thing to have

Mark: Touch of Faith

Date 20th September 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Mark 5:21-43

What do you do when life seems to spiral out of control, when you become desperate and don’t know where to turn? In the story today we have two desperate people coming to Jesus, one an outcast of society and one risking becoming an outcast (Synagogue rulers should have nothing to do with Jesus). in

Blessed are the Underdogs

Date 13th September 2015  by KJ Tromp - Pastor for Nerang Community Church  Bible passage Matthew 5:1-12

Jesus preached a sermon on the godly underdog, we call it the “Beatitudes”. You know how it goes, “blessed are the poor in spirit”, “blessed are those who mourn” etc. Many people, whether you are a Christian or not, can relate to being marginalised, but Jesus wanted to address very real situations and he wants

Mark: Jesus Can

Date 13th September 2015  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Mark 5:1-20

Two weeks ago we heard how Jesus proved his Lordship over creation as he calmed a violent storm at sea (Mark 4:35-41). This prompted those who saw it to ask the question: ‘Who is this?’ Indeed this is the central question the entire gospel of Mark poses to the reader. Who is this man Jesus?

Our Loving Father

Date 06th September 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 1 John 3:1-3

The term “father” generates different feelings in all of us. We all have Fathers. The truth is, there are some great fathers, some ordinary fathers, and some terrible father. While we acknowledge this about fathers today we won’t be focussing on the way fathers fail but we will look the most wonderful Father of them

Christian of the Year Award – NO SERMON

Date: 27 November 2016, 09:11 by aiims

As you read this passage, you can imagine the disciples arguing about who would be awarded the prestigious award of ‘Christian of the Year’. You picture them trying to show why they should be considered for the award, how they were greater, each convinced that they were a better disciple than the one next to

Towards Wholeness: Cleaning

Date: 01 March 2015, 17:03 by aiims

Most of us have heard the saying “cleanliness is next to godliness“. It may remind many of us of our disgruntled parents who said it over our untidy bedrooms as children or having heard it as the justification for the Saturday morning cleaning spree in the Christian household. Is it true though? Is being clean

Ruth: God’s Perfect Timing – NO SERMON

Date: 11 January 2015, 17:01 by aiims

The right place at the right time. Coincidence? Chance? Good luck? The wrong place at the wrong time. Bad luck? Fate? Accidental? Is this how we look at the circumstances of our lives? Where is God in all of this. That was the question that plagued Naomi in chapter 1 as she wonders why she

We all have had victories, gifts or blessings in our lives which caused us to exclaim in an exuberant tone of joyfulness the word ‘YEEAAAH!’ or just the simple old, but very loud and emotionally charged ‘YEESSS!’ We all know the feeling when we experience this on the sports field, at work, school, uni or

The Messenger’s Mission

Date: 16 February 2014, 09:02 by aiims

John the Baptist must be one of the most peculiar characters of Scripture. From Mark’s gospel we know he had a strange fashion sense, wearing clothes made out of rough camel hair; we know of his diet oddness, locusts and wild honey. Some might dismiss him as a crackpot, an oddball, or a weirdo but
