Dealing with Division

Date 06th March 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Acts 6:1-7

Dealing with Division: Every family knows the reality of difficulties and friction. It seems to be whenever you get people living together in close proximity there are bound to be some issues. The same is true in the church, even in the early church. This Sunday we come to Acts 6:1-7, which has the potential,

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

One of the problems we can easily slip into is a feeling of self-righteousness. We look out at the sinful world and see the grievous sins that are committed and we begin to think of ourselves as better than them. It is these attitudes that seems to be Paul’s concern as he moves into chapter

Vision Of Things To Come

In chapter 7 the book of Daniel takes on a very different flavour. The rest of the book is essentially made up of a number of visions and a prayer. They are strange visions, with beasts, horns and visions into heaven. What are we to make of this sort of writing? Why is it here?

Romans – Joyous Hope

How would you describe God’s attitude towards you? Given the first 3 or so chapters of Romans, you might say, ‘well at least because of Jesus’s death for me He’s not angry at me.’ And yet at times, especially in times of trial, we can doubt even that. In the first part of chapter 5

Jesus, Overcoming Evil

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
