Has God Lost

Date 09th September 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Daniel 1

Sunday evening we begin a series in the book of Daniel. It begins with a report of God’s apparent defeat, at least that is how it would have seemed at the time. We live in a time where many claim God’s defeat. The church is on the way out, it has had it’s day. How

Romans – Called to Belong

Date 09th September 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Romans 1:1-7

Today we begin a sermon series in the book of Romans. Many people consider Romans to be Paul’s most profound, detailed explanation of the Christian faith. This morning we will look at Paul’s introduction in 1:1-7. Opening his letter, Paul talks about his credibility, his message, and his mission. All of this is intertwined in

Who Are You Reflecting?

Date 02nd September 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Ephesians 6:4

In Ephesians 6:4 Paul instructs fathers not to exasperate their chil￾dren, but to bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. I’m sure all of us, fathers and mothers alike think that sounds like a good idea. But how do we do it? What does that look like? Part of the answer

The Transforming Power of Praise

Date 26th August 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Psalm 95

Psalm 95 starts out like many psalms, with exuberant praise. We are called to ‘shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation’. It reminds us of how great God is and how great His love is for us. But then it takes a strange twist. It turns from being a psalm of praise to one

The Symptoms of the Flesh

Date 19th August 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Galatians 5:19-21

Have you ever had the experience of looking back on something you did wrong and saying to yourself, ‘I can’t believe I did that. I don’t normally do that sort of thing.’ How does that happen? Why do we humans do things that we believe are wrong? Why can’t we educate ourselves to a better

Song of a Struggling Saint

Date 19th August 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Psalm 73

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

Betrayal and Blessing

Date 12th August 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Mark 14:12-31

Mark sandwiches the beauty of the Lord’s Supper between accounts of betrayal and abandonment. As we celebrate the Lord’s Supper this evening we need to be reminded of the beauty of the supper as it is surrounded by the very people (just like us) who need the grace extended through it.

Gospel Truth

Date 12th August 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage 3 John 1-14

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

The Fight (Forge Sunday)

Date 05th August 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Galations 5:16-26

You may not realise it, but you are in a fight, a battle, but it is ‘no longer I, but Christ in me.’ As believers, we have freedom in Christ. But freedom in Christ doesn’t mean a life without conflict but it does mean the possibility of life without defeat. That is a huge encouragement

[Reading: Mark 12:28-34] In our journey through Mark’s gospel we have come to a passage we know so well.

How bold are your prayers? Boldness in prayer is an uncomfortable thought for many. We think of speaking softly to God, humbling ourselves before God, or having a chat with God … but agonizing before God? Storming Heaven with prayers? Pounding on the door of the Most High? Wrestling with God? Isn’t such prayer irreverent?
