As Aussies we are given so much to be thankful for in our part of the world. Aussies who have accepted the gospel have a share in an even greater gift – the promise of eternal life with our Creator. Is it possible for us to value these promises and gifts of God more than
Joseph had a dream laid upon him from God. He proceeded to share this dream with his brothers who then in turn hated him for it. What dream is God putting in your heart. How are you going to deal with any ridicule you get when you share it.
It is with much thankfulness to God, that one of our leaders of the orphanage, Israel was able to get his visa application approved and be our special guest at church this Sunday. Israel will be sharing God’s word with us both in the morning and evening services.
“The Law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul” speaks the Psalmist. You may wonder why King David can speak so highly of God’s law that he says we should even meditate on it continually. This Sunday morning we will look at Psalm 19 to see what the Psalmist is talking about and discover
We were all saddened by the tragic loss of life in the recent house fire at Slacks Creek. At the same time I was deeply humbled by the outpouring of praise to God in the midst of such a tragedy. While many will question why a loving God would allow this to happen or even
Some months ago we looked at some important New Testament teaching as regards the wonderful truth that each Christian is indwelt by the Spirit of God. When a person believes in Christ as Lord and Saviour, the Spirit ‘moves’ into that person’s life, to – as it were – claim that person for the Kingdom
Today is Father’s Day, a happy occassion where we take time to honour and thank the men in our lives to whom we owe so much. Yet despite the joys and successes of fatherhood we celebrate today, the cost of ‘fatherlessness’ in our culture is simply HUGE! In terms of dollars and cents, research estimates
What the church needs is……! Why don’t our politicians do something about….! If it were up to me I would…! Self-proclaimed know-alls, arm chair critics sideline spectators …everybody knows one…or two or three…! We really need people who will get in and do something to fix a situation or solve a problem. We need people
In the church today, we leave a track – footprint. Are we leaving a track that is deceiving or one that is fitting of God’s grace. Is our track showing a loving Christian life style ? In Revelations the angel of God tell us we need to be fearing of God. Todays message will help
Many people start the Christian journey but never finish it. Sometimes as Christians we can start to drift away from our commitment to Jesus Christ. So how do you run with perseverance the race that God has marked out for us? How do you finish well? How do you cultivate your faith, so that it
“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 weRead More +
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 whatRead More +
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, askingRead More +
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.
