Joy in Gospel Transformation

Date 03rd March 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Colossians 1:1-14

What sort of things do you tend to get excited about in the lives of others? A new job, great marks, topping the ladder in the local football comp? They are all good things but in Colossians 1 Paul gets excited about something quite different, gospel transformation. Not only that but he show us how

Licence to Sin?

Date 03rd March 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Romans 6:15-7:6

Last week Pastor Jono spoke about how Christ has set us free and so we are to see ourselves as dead to sin and alive to God. We were challenged to not go back to the slums, nor live like we are still part of it. Paul is continuing this train of thought, again, asking

Upside-down Values

Date 24th February 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 5:1-12

The Sermon on the Mount has been described as the greatest message ever given…by the greatest preacher. The wisest words ever spoken…by the wisest person who ever lived. This may well be true, but have you ever stopped to think about the impact of the opening verses of chapter 5. Jesus begins with a bombshell!

Shall We Go On Sinning?

Date 24th February 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 6:1-14

By the time we get to the end of Romans chapter 5 Paul has made it very clear that we are saved entirely by grace through the death and resurrection of Jesus. But that raises a question, ‘if I’m not saved by what I do, what does it matter how I live?’ Paul is going

Discipleship – Making New Disciples

Date 17th February 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Colossians 4:2-6

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. But what does that look like for the average Christian? Not all of us are gift￾ed to be evangelists, but we do have

Discipleship – Growing Together

Date 10th February 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Ephesians 4:11-13; Hebrews 10:19-25

Following on from last week’s message we learn that if we are a disciple of Jesus, a follower of Jesus, then we need to growing to be more like Jesus. For this to happen well we need each other to help each other grow as a disciple of Jesus. As a church, we need to

What is a Disciple?

Date 03rd February 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Matthew 28:16-20; 16:21-28

What is a disciple? Why would we even want to use that word? It’s not a common one in Australia. The reality is the word disciple helps to capture what it means to be a follower of Jesus. It’s easy, in a way (though perhaps unpopular) to slap the label ‘Christian’ on ourselves, but what

Redemption’s Song

Date 27th January 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Psalm 130

The person who stands amazed at God’s willingness to forgive understands their own sinfulness and the extent of God’s ‘unfailing love’. That’s the Christian message of hope. There is hope for the hurting; there is hope for the hopeless; there is hope for the sinner. When you cry out for mercy, the Lord will hear

In Vain?

Date 27th January 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Psalm 127

“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain.” So begins psalm 127. But what does that mean for us? Does it mean we shouldn’t try? Does it mean we need a special word from God before we do anything? How can one live with this principle in mind? That is what we
