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

How Then Shall We Live?

Date 28th July 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Exodus 20:1-26

We have been following the exodus journey of the Israelites who have now arrived at Mt Sinai, the place where they were brought to worship God. Now what? Here God renews his covenant with the people by giving them ways to live and ways to worship. How are they to respond? With fear and worship.

How To Get Along – Part 2

Date 28th July 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 14:31-15:13

When it comes to ‘disputable matters’ we are not to judge or condemn one another. However, does that mean we can just exercise our freedom in whatever way we want? Paul’s answer is, ‘no’. Rather we are to seek the good of our neighbour as one for whom Christ died. This will not always be

One Great God, Many Servants

Date 21st July 2019  by JK  Bible passage Exodus 19

God has set a divine appointment to meet with his chosen people, Israel. He has carefully planned and orchestrated their salvation so that they might know Him. They have heard His messenger Moses, they have seen his mighty hand in Egypt, they have tasted his provision in the desert, and now after all they have

How To Get Along – Part 1

Date 21st July 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 14:1-12

In the first section of Romans Paul lays out the beautiful truth of the gospel. The gospel is certain and clear and it must be carefully guarded because the gospel is God’s power to save. If we mess up the gospel, we make it harder for people to know God. However, not everything is so

Love in the Last Days

Date 14th July 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Romans 13:8-14

In these verses Paul returns to the subject of love. This may seem a little odd given in 12:9-21 he already described what transformed love looks like. However, here he seems to want us to understand how the law relates to love and encourage us not to give up on showing love. There will be

Torn Between the Old and the New

Over the last two weeks we have seen that, having been rescued from sin, a should not go on deliberately living in sin. We have been set free from after all. But, have we? If we are honest that is not our daily experience. In￾deed we often find ourselves doing things we know are wrong.

Discipleship – Making New Disciples

Date: 17 February 2019, 10:02 by Load Audio & Video

Before Jesus returned to heaven he gave his disciples a mission, ‘go into all nations and make disciples.’ This was a mission they passed onto those new disciples and therefore onto us. But what does that look like for the average Christian? Not all of us are gift￾ed to be evangelists, but we do have

The Arrival of Death

This week we begin a brief Easter series that will lead us to the great passage that examines Jesus’ victory over death for us (1 Cor 15). To get there however, we need to ask the question, ‘where has death come from?’ That takes us right back to the beginning of history. Adam and Eve
