The Fight

Date 30th June 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Exodus 17:8-16

As the Israelites continue their journey through the wilderness for the first time they come to a place where they have to fight. How will they do that with no standing army? But this is not a fight they need to do on their own. The Lord is with them, and that is seen in

Transformed Love

Date 30th June 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 12:9-21

A few weeks ago we began our examination of a new section of Romans. Paul is explaining how the gospel should shape our lives. No longer should we conform to the pattern of the world, rather we long to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, so we can live in a way that

Hungering for Righteousness

Date 23rd June 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Matthew 5:6

This Sunday evening we are hosting young people from other Reformed Churches in our state and so we return to the ‘Beatitudes’. ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.’ It is an awesome promise. Jesus offers to fill us with righteousness, but what is that? And do we

Proper Thinking

Date 23rd June 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Romans 12:1-8

Last week, with Pastor Jono, we looked at the general principle of being living sacrifices; to be transformed in thinking and behaviour so we no longer conform to wrong cultural norms. Now Paul, in Romans, follows that up with specific applications. He is giving some specific ideas and concrete ways in which we can carry

Water and War in the Wilderness

Date 16th June 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Exodus 17:1-15

What is the Bible about? The redemptive story of God, from creation to glorification. It is about Jesus, the central character in the redemptive story. It is the overwhelming revelation of God’s provision. It is, certainly in the Old Testament, the recurring doubt and disbelief of a people and the unrelenting, miraculous provision for God’s

In View of God’s Mercy

Date 16th June 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 12:1-2

Today we reach a transition in the book of Romans. Up unto this point Paul has been laying out what God has done and is doing to rescue sinful people and reconcile them to Himself. It has been an incredible picture. But how do we respond? Given God’s great mercy to us in sending Jesus

Grumbling at God

Date 09th June 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Exodus 15:22-16:36

God has just brought the people through the red sea, saving them from Pharaoh and his chariots. They have been saved, they believed, and they worshiped. What comes next? The answer, like that for the Christian, is sanctification; the long hard process of being conformed to the holiness of God. They had left Egypt, making

What Happens After I Die?

Date 09th June 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Luke 24:1-12; 36-53

Perhaps two of the most important questions for any person to answer are, ‘does God exist’ and ‘what happens to me after I die’? Interestingly, all through the ages humans have not seen death as the end of existence. Just about every culture had a version of the ‘afterlife’. The problem for us is, how

Two Important Ingredients for Gospel Ministry

Date 02nd June 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Colossians 4:7-18

We have come to the end of Paul’s letter to the Colossians. As he often does, Paul ends with a number of greetings and instructions for various individuals, as well as final words for the church. What are we to make of this? Many things could be said, but two things stand out. Firstly, Paul

God, What are You Like?

Date 02nd June 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Luke 15:11-32

Every culture in the history of the world has had some concept of what God is like. The problem is that each of the assumptions are only part of the picture of who God is. Thankfully, while there are some things we don’t understand about God, He is knowable. In fact, He has revealed everything

Discipleship – Making New Disciples

Before Jesus returned to heaven he gave his disciples a mission, ‘go into all nations and make disciples.’ This was a mission they passed onto those new disciples and therefore onto us.
