Jesus, Hope of the World

Date 05th February 2012  by Jim de Witte - Pastor for Dandenong CRC  Bible passage Isaiah 42:1-9

God is Love

Date 05th February 2012  by Jim de Witte - Pastor for Dandenong CRC  Bible passage 1 John 4:7-21

God’s Promises Sealed

Date 29th January 2012  by Ryan Hemelaar - Operation 513 Leader  Bible passage Ephesians 1:3-14

In the uncertain times that we are living in, it is easy to forget who is in charge and that He has a plan. It is even easy to forget the many ways He has poured out blessings upon us. The Apostle Paul begins his letter to the Ephesians reminding the Church about the amazing

Beyond Good and Evil – NO SERMON

Date 22nd January 2012  by Greg Tenni - Elder  Bible passage Genesis 2:15-3:7

This morning we want to look at that moment in time when everything went horribly wrong for humanity. In the midst of paradise, a seemingly harmless suggestion leads to a desire to be-come rulers of our own destiny, independent from God. But then, as now, our craving for superior knowledge and individual greatness only destroys

In 2 Peter 3:18 God’s people are told that they are to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We looked at that verse in two evening services in October and November, and this morning I want to combine some of the main things that we saw in the

From the Cradle to the Cross

Date 25th December 2011  by Keith Warren  Bible passage Matthew 2:13-18

With all the positive sides that there are to Christmas, we must realize that not everyone was pleased with this miracle: Immanuel, God with us! Jesus had to face persecution very soon after He was born; King Herod wanted Him out of the way. But he failed. And Jesus continued on another 33 years of

Jesus is for Ordinary People

Date 18th December 2011  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Luke 2:8-20

At the slight risk of offence, it can be said that most Aussies are ‘ordinary’ people who have ‘ordinary’ jobs and ‘ordinary’ families. When it comes to religion – and in particular a religious celebration of Christmas – many people say: ‘well, what has it got to do with me?’ Doesn’t religion belong to a

Can God Make You a Christian?

Date 11th December 2011  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Matthew 2:1-12

Recently I had a conversation with someone about evangelism. We mused on the great need of teaching Christian children how to evangelise. In the course of our conversation it felt almost as if we have lost sight of God’s ability and eagerness to show himself to people who don’t know him. It’s almost like we

Tired? Stressed? You’ll Feel Better With God – NO SERMON?

Date 04th December 2011  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Matthew 1:18-25

The birth of a baby is always a moving event. We can’t help but be overawed when we see new life come about. As we are entering the festive season, we stop and recognize a very special birth, that of Jesus Christ. Right from the beginning we see that this was no ordinary birth –

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

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.

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

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

The Holy Spirit Is Crucial
