The readiness to speak for Jesus.

by

1 Peter 3:8-22. The first word of 1 Peter 3:8 suggests at first sight that he is drawing to a close, but he still has plenty more to say yet! Here, the “finally” is more of a conclusion to Peter’s encouragement to us individually to live the Christian life well, before he brings us back […]

Wherever we are.

by

Genesis 28: 10-17. Everyone has a frontline – a place where we do life or work and where we encounter people who don’t know Jesus. We don’t need to go looking for these, we are already there. We just need to see these places with fresh eyes.

Rome and sports.

by

Acts 28: 11 – 31; Romans 1: 1-17; 15: 13 – 16: 2. It was around 60 AD (cf 79 AD Vesuvius destroyed Pompeii) when Paul sailed up to the Bay of Naples, seemingly on a large Alexandrian grain ship, (https://holylandphotos.wordpress.com/2019/01/21/puteoli-italy-paul-stayed-here-for-a-week-on-his-way-to-rome/) and then took the usual Via Appia walk (135miles, almost all uphill) up to […]

Hope.

by

2 Corinthians 4: Isaiah 58. We are moving from a series that we have been doing, “Life in all its Fullness”, where we had a look at John’s gospel and particularly about our own personal salvation and relationship with God and then beyond this week we will be looking at “Church in all its Fullness”, […]

Will you believe?

by

John 10: 22 – 42. What will it take for us to see “life in all its fullness” being offered to us by Jesus as our Lord and Saviour? Those who have been listening to Jesus are still asking, “When are you finally going to tell us if you really are the Christ?”. That must […]

The day is coming.

by

Zephaniah, Matthew 1:18-25 After a little respite whilst we were with Haggai from harsh messages of judgement delivered by the other prophets, we’re back to it with Zephaniah. The repeated phrase “on that day” warns of a time to come when the Lord will act decisively. Yet, chapter 3:9-20 seems to talk of a new […]

Pray with joy and thanksgiving.

by

NOTE: We apologise, but due to a technical problem this recording does not include the last 5 minutes. Psalm 100; Philippians 4:4-7; James 1:2-8 Psalm 100 is an exhortation to joyfully come before the Lord with praise and thanksgiving. It’s an uplifting Psalm that highlights the enduring love and faithfulness of the Lord. Philippians 4 […]

Let love out of the building.

by

Romans 12:9 – 13:14 Romans 12: 14-21 are like a bridge that joins up the way that we love each other within the church, and the way that we go about “living the gospel” as we move around in the world, still showing the same love that we show towards each other. That’s so crucial […]

Glorious Conquerors.

by

Romans 8:18-37. Paul comes back to the reality of our suffering and struggles (see chapter 5) and here sets it squarely alongside Christian hope. Hope dwarfs suffering. It puts it in the shadows. How? Because “in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us” (vs. 37). Therefore, nothing can separate […]

Learning to dance with the Spirit.

by

Romans 8: 1-17. Paul explains here how we are to live by God’s ways as best we can, empowered by the Spirit. He urges us to seek out a rhythm for life that sets our lives by the Spirit – what some people describe as “learning to dance to the Spirit’s tune”. Paul gives us […]
