  • You Make Me Sick!

    Christ's letter to the Church in Laodicea urges us to see ourselves as Christ sees us, which might not be very pleasant, but he also longs to restore our lost fellowship with him.

    They thought they were doing very well. They had a high opinion of themselves, their Church and their town. The town was famous and wealthy. So wealthy that, when much of it was destroyed by an earthquake in 60AD, they turned down an offer of money from the government to help to rebuild it, ...read more

  • Why Pentecost

    Contributed by Bramwell Hayes on Jun 11, 2011
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,941 views

    To show that the Holy Spirit was given for the good of the gospel and the Church, not us as individuals. Being controlled by the Spirit is essential in our Christian life, but might make us unpopular.

    For many generations, it seems, the coming of the Holy Spirit, his person and his work, were all but ignored by the Church. What the Bible taught about him was believed, but not put into practice very well. Certainly the idea that he is still active in the world and in the Church was not an every ...read more

    Christ requires complete commitment from his disciples, that is why he put off 3 half-hearted would be followers.

    Last week, in the Parable of the Sower, we looked at three different types of people who hear the Word of God, but who do not allow it to any lasting effect on them. Today we are looking at three people who said that they would follow Jesus, but who ended up who ended up by not following. In each ...read more

    How Terah's partial obedience cost him dearly

    There is a popular saying that goes “It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive”. We often hear it quoted in various circumstances. But is it true? Is it sometimes better to arrive than to travel hopefully? Terah lived in the great city of Ur. This was a large, important and ...read more

  • A Long Time Series

    based on 1 rating
     | 1,828 views

    When God seems to have abandoned us for a long time we need to trust, looking forwards and backwards to times of blessing, as David did.

    What is a long time? A year? Ten years? A hundred years? A thousand years? The answer to this question is ’it all depends’. We live in an increasingly impatient world; we want and expect everything NOW, just like spoiled children. I was like that on Thursday afternoon when I was in a huge hurry ...read more

  • Simon (Or Is It Peter?)

    Contributed by Bramwell Hayes on May 11, 2009
     | 2,050 views

    The restoration of Peter, and what it means to follow Jesus.

    “Simon, son of John”. Simon? That was his old name. That was the name that he was given by his parents, the name that he had gone by right up until the Lord had changed his name to ‘Peter’ – the Rock. He had certainly not lived up to this new name. That night he had let him down very badly. That ...read more

    The signs and the dangers of falling asleep spiritually, and how Christ can wake us up again.

    Windows have been much in my mind the last couple of weeks. The windows in the hall that had rotten frames have all been replaced. But we have hit a snag with the fire escape at the back. The replacement doors are too big and do not fit, this was not discovered until after the old ones had been ...read more

  • Count The Cost!

    Grace is free, but discipleship costs. Are we prepared to pay?

    We see adverts all over the place, promising low prices and amazing deals on all sorts of things and products. But on closer examination many of these so-called bargains are to so cheap after all because there are all sorts of hidden extras that have to be paid for. Often the quoted price is a lot ...read more

  • A Warning And A Promise

     | 1,296 views

    Isaiah one gives us a warning of the outcome of rebelling against God, but also a promise of his grace to repentant rebels.

    We have two new babies in our corps, Moses and Eddy. When a baby is first born will go to anyone, but soon knows who its mummy is, and just wants her! Will start to cry if held by a stranger. Young children find safety and security in their parents and familiar people, want to be with them, afraid ...read more

  • The Vision Of Isaiah - A Vision Of The Trinity

    Contributed by Bramwell Hayes on May 17, 2008
    based on 7 ratings
     | 3,802 views

    The vision of Isaiah and its explanation in John teaches us that the whole of the Trinity is essential and we cannot have one without the other two.

    Vision of Isaiah always fascinated me. An exciting and well-known passage of Scripture. I’ve read and studied it many times, preached on it. But always seem to have missed something important that I have only noticed this time, despite reading both Isaiah and John many times have only this week ...read more

  • A True Vision Of Christ

     | 1,188 views

    The transfiguration shows us Christ as he really is. It shows us that his authority is based on who he is, not what he has done.

    See him as he really is What a transformation! There used to be a lot of makeover shows on TV, in which somebody’s appearance, dress or house was completely changed in a very short time. The change was very often dramatic, and they seemed to be quite different people after than they were before, ...read more

    The Post-exilic people got their priorities wrong. So do we. God calls us back to put first things first

    It was 29th August 520 BC, over 18 years since they had returned from exile in Babylon. An exile that their parents and grandparents had been repeatedly warned by the prophets would come if they did not abandon the worship of fake gods and return to the Lord alone. They ignored the warnings of the ...read more

    Two people who were changed by one contact with Jesus, after trying to avoid meeting him tell their stories. Zacceus and the woman who bled.

    Mark 5:25-34 Unclean! Unclean! Unclean! That was me It was not really a life, more an existence, and a miserable existence at that. I was tired all the time and I was getting weaker, and weaker, and weaker. I had no energy, no joy or zest for life. Some days I could only lie on my bed all ...read more

  • The Feast Of Firstfruits

     | 6,524 views

    The first harvest festival of the Jewish year teaches us that God will give good things to us because of his nature, not because he has been manipulated, that he has first claim on everything and the resurrection of Christ is a promise that we too will be

    Harvest is one of my most favourite Sundays in the year. The special songs, the display, the food donated to be used as food parcels for people in need of food through the year. The ancient Israelites were fortunate in that God had commanded them to have not one, but three harvest festivals a ...read more

  • Revenge Is Sweet, Or Is It?

    based on 8 ratings
     | 1,760 views

    How the way of Christ is not the way of vengeance, but the way of seeking our foes’ blessing and salvation.

    Litigation seems to be increasingly common in our society, people are always taking each other to court in order to get some form of compensation for some wrong that they perceive has been done to them. Most of you will know that I used to be a doctor; in fact I still practice at the detox unit. ...read more
