Acts: On Fire, Under Fire

Date 06th March 2011  by David Groenenboom  Bible passage Acts 5:12-42

On Fire, Under Fire. One of the challenges about reading Acts is coming face to face with the sheer amount of opposition the people faced. This passage is another point of tension – to put it mildly – between the NT church and the leaders of the Jewish faith. Amazing things happen, and God is

Acts: Does God Require Perfection?

Date 27th February 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Acts 5:1-11

Someone commented to me in the last week “I want to belong to the church of Acts 2.” And it seems very attractive, like they had no problems, and everyone was included, and exciting things we always happening. What’s not to love? And then we hit Acts 5, and all of a sudden it get

Acts: A New Community

Date 20th February 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Acts 2:42-47

Have you ever wondered what heaven is like? Maybe images of fluffy clouds, angels, harps and as much pizza as you can eat come to mind. The reality is that God has given us some glimpses of eternity, and they are not where we might expect, they are actually in the church. This Sunday, as

Acts: Church – Outward Bound

Date 13th February 2011  by David Groenenboom  Bible passage Acts 1:1-11

How do we understand the book of Acts? What was Luke’s intention as he wrote it? And what can we learn about how God is at work in his church, then and now? Acts 1 gets us off to a flying start – Jesus’ return to heaven, the Holy Spirit promised, Judas replaced. It all

Over the last few weeks we have considered the characters around the tomb, the people who stood and watched as Jesus was crucified. Some of these people loved Jesus, some loathed him, yet everyone watched him die. The earth shook as he breathed his last and darkness fell over the land. He was taken down

The question of who Jesus is and what he came to do is not only a question that is around today, but has been around from the day he was born. It was a question that Matthew was attempting to answer in his gospel. He quotes from the book of Isaiah to show that one

The Legacy of Mothers and Grandmothers

In the passage this morning, Paul mentions his thanks for the mother and grandmother of Timothy, his ‘trainee’. They had passed on a huge legacy to Timothy, one that would last for eternity. What was that legacy? The sincere faith that was lived out in their lives. We combine Mother’s Day with a baptism and

Stories of God

Date: 13 May 2012, 17:05 by aiims

It’s that time of the year again where we stop to listen to the stories of people to whom God has revealed himself. It is in that sense that their testimonies or ‘life stories’ literally become ‘stories of God’. Stories of how God reached out, who he put in place and what experiences led them
