Date 15th September 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Exodus 24

From Adam to Noah: Lessons from a Genealogy

Date 15th September 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Genesis 5

To most people, the genealogies are the most boring part of the Bible. It seems to be an endless list of unpronounceable names of ancient people. So, most people skip over the genealogies, but this list shouldn’t be dismissed too quickly, as it is essential to Noah’s story. This list gives us an insight into

Little By Little

Date 08th September 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Exodus 23:20-33

God has rescued a people out of slavery to be in relationship with him, to be his very own. He has led them, fed them and rescued them from danger. He has put up with their grumbling and complaining. He has revealed himself to them, communicating to them his character and nature. He has given

Do Not Refuse Him Who Speaks

Date 08th September 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Genesis 4

In Genesis 3 we saw the rebellion of humanity against the creator God and read of the terrible consequences for Adam and Eve, and for everyone since. In Genesis 4 we see how quickly this rebellion leads to destruction. In a short space of time we have the first ever murder and within generations we

Leading the Way

Date 01st September 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Ruth 2

This Father’s day we are asking ourselves, ‘What does it mean to lead your family well?’ Or perhaps we could put it more generally, ‘What does it mean to be a good leader?’ One of the best examples of godly leadership is found in the wonderful account of Ruth and Boaz. In a time where

What Went Wrong?

Date 25th August 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Gen 3:1-24

You just have to look at the news to know something is not right in the world. Things do not seem to be getting better despite education, social engineering and scientific advances. Why not? Who will explain it? Nothing makes sense unless we understand the first few chapters of Genesis. Last week in Genesis 1

The Beginning of All Things

Date 18th August 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Gen 1:1-2:3

This week we begin our journey through Genesis. As it’s name implies this book tells us of beginnings. The beginning of creation, the beginning of mankind, the beginning of sin and the beginning of God’s redemption. It is a book that sets the foundation for all that follows. We start, of course with creation, which

The Glory of Serving Jesus Together

Date 11th August 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 16

As Jim mentioned last week, these are the sorts of verses that we are tempted to skip over. After all, we don’t know these people. We don’t need to greet Priscilla nor do the greetings of Timothy mean a whole lot to us. It almost seems like we have picked up someone else’s postcard and

Does God Condone Slavery?

Date 04th August 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Exodus 21:1-11, 20-21, 26-27

There are passages in the Bible that are, to say the least, disturbing. They are passages that are sometimes used to throw doubt on Christianity and to show that, if there is a God, he must be a terrible being. The early part of Exodus 21 is just such a passage, for there God seems

Paul’s Burden and Mission

Date 04th August 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Romans 15:14-33

We are drawing to a close in our study of this great epistle to the Romans, and this letter closes just as it began, with a personal word from the apostle about himself, and about the church in Rome. It seems like some miscellaneous greetings and comments, so it is tempting to skip over these

So far Paul has been laying the “ground rules”. He’s been explaining the “theory” and theology of; “the Son of God”, the mysteries that has been revealed, how we have been baptised with Christ, and the dangers of falling into man made ideologies. But now in chapter three he becomes super practical; Paul wants to

Romans 8:31–39 may be the most comforting and encouraging passage in the entire Bible. We move to a grand climax of assurance of salvation and sanctification.

Glory Through Suffering

Last week we heard that God is doing a great work in us by His Spirit to enable us to do good. This is a process that has begun and will be fulfilled when Jesus comes again, but at the end of that section, Paul raises the issue of suffering and strangely links it to

God has just brought the people through the red sea, saving them from Pharaoh and his chariots. They have been saved, they believed, and they worshiped. What comes next? The answer, like that for the Christian, is sanctification; the long hard process of being conformed to the holiness of God. They had left Egypt, making

Every culture in the history of the world has had some concept of what God is like. The problem is that each of the assumptions are only part of the picture of who God is. Thankfully, while there are some things we don’t understand about God, He is knowable. In fact, He has revealed everything
