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?

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

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.

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

If you live long enough, your faith is bound to be challenged some time. Psalm 73 is the song of a godly man who felt his faith slipping away. Even though these words were written 3000 years ago, they might as well have been written today. This Psalm is his very personal testimony. He opens
