Jesus, Overcoming Evil

Date 23rd December 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Matthew 2:13-23

This is a sad story. Yes God rescues His son, but many babies are killed by the evil king Herod. Jesus was born into a world of evil, not to condemn it first of all, but to rescue people. To rescue people from the evil we perpetuate and are enslaved to. He came to create

Jesus, God with Us

Date 16th December 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 1:18-25

Babies are cute. They’re not supposed to inspire awe. Maybe that’s why people find it so easy to trivialise Christmas. Baby Jesus lying helpless in a manger can be viewed with mild affection. People are unlikely to be offended by a baby and it’s why they can quickly move on with life. But who is

Making Commitments to God

Date 09th December 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Psalm 101

Psalm 101 is a psalm of commitment. In line after line, David speaks to God, and those who listen, and tells Him what he will do. It almost comes across as bravado or arrogance. Yet, it’s worth asking whether this is something we should be doing? How does committing fit with grace? Do we imply

Jesus, a Promise Fulfilled

Date 09th December 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 1:1-17

If we took a survey of everyone and asked ‘What is your favourite text in the Bible?’ probably none of you would say ‘Matthew 1:1-17. Instead you are more likely to ask, ‘Why would Matthew begin his account of the life of Jesus with a boring genealogy?’ That’s a great question and one we will

A Psalm of the Cleaners

Date 02nd December 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Psalm 84

This is a beautiful Psalm written by people who were present in the Temple, who served there. In it they are expressing just how intensely they desired to be there. But this desire was not because they were separated from it but because they were exactly where they wanted to be. They felt blessed to

God, Who Cares

Date 02nd December 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage John 1:1-18

Over the last two weeks we have seen the mystery, as we examined the Trinity, and the majesty of God as creator. In doing that, one can be left with the impression that God is distant and unapproachable. So different from us that any real relationship is impossible. That is not what we find in

A Cosmic Battle

Date 25th November 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Daniel 10:1-11:1

This week we will be finishing off the book of Daniel. It is three chapters, but it’s all one vision and the explanation. In these chapters we once again get an insight into a reality we never normally witness. Here we see angels that protect and daemons that cause havoc. How does this help us

God, Who is Eternal

Date 25th November 2018  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Isaiah 40:12-31

Last week we begun looking at what the Bible teaches us about God and who He is. We saw that He is one God, but in three persons. A wonderfully rich mystery. This week we will look at the fact that God is eternal. He existed before the universe and He is beyond this universe.

More Than “I’m Sorry”

Date 18th November 2018  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Daniel 9

Often we are quick to say ‘I’m sorry’ but there is no depth to it. Daniel is different in this chapter. He approaches God in prayer, humbly and with a broken heart. He identifies with his people and their failings. Yet his prayer is more than a litany of failure. It was an appeal for

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

In these verses Paul finishes exposing our great problem as humans and the various ways it shows up. In chapter one we saw people in open rebellion, at the beginning of chapter 2 Paul exposed the self righteous, this week he looks at people who appear to be following God, but are still living in

This morning Israel will bring us a message from Genesis 3. Chapter 3 tells the story of that paradise lost; the result of the first willful human sin. The consequences: immediate shame and lifelong separation from their home with God. Come listen to Israel as he deals with the question ‘Where Are You?’

Romans – The Result of Rejecting God

Date: 23 September 2018, 10:09 by Load Audio & Video

In Romans last week we were reminded that the gospel is God’s power to bring salvation to all people. As we speak it to other, God will transform lives. Not only will people change their destination (hell to heaven), but God will change the way they live. The question is, why is that such good
