  • Dos And Don'ts Of Salvation

    Contributed by Simon Bartlett on Mar 22, 2021

    A defibrillator can’t save someone while it’s in its cabinet. It has to be taken down and operated. In the same way, Jesus’ death and resurrection don’t save a person unless a person makes use of them. A person has to respond to them. There are some 'dos' and 'don'ts'.

    In recent years something new has appeared on many high streets: defibrillators. Defibrillators can be life-savers if someone suffers a heart attack. They aren’t only on high streets, of course. I like to do ‘Park Run’ (when it’s happening!) and lots of Park Runs have defibrillators. You often more

  • The Pharisee And The Tax Collector Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Oct 31, 2020

    DEVELOPING BIBLICAL HUMILITY: 1. Do not point a finger to others. EXPLANATION: - We are saved by God's atonement and mercy, not by our righteous deeds. - Righteousness is NOT a human achievement instead of a gift of God’s grace. Luke 18:9 (PHILLIPS) “Then He gave this more

  • The Paradox Of Poverty Series

    Contributed by Jefferson Williams on Jul 30, 2020

    Jesus started the sermon with a startling announcement that the “poor in Spirit” are the ones who will be blessed and get to be part of the Kingdom. What does this mean?

    Introduction: Our theme for today’s sermon is “God is merciful”. Mercy is at the heart of the Christian faith and God is not just merciful, He is rich in mercy. Mercy is an aspect of God’s nature that spares us the punishment we justly deserve. God’s mercy is unchanging and eternal. Cain killed more

    Contributed by Scott Jensen on Oct 29, 2019

  • A Prayer God Hears

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Oct 24, 2019
    based on 3 ratings

    Jesus shows two very different prayer styles, and in so doing, reveals two very different heart styles. One will enter the kingdom of heaven; one won't. Our prayer life should reflect humility throughout.

    Luke 18:9-14 A Prayer God Hears Last week we looked at a parable where Jesus taught us to be persistent in our prayers: pray always, never give up, and above all, keep the faith! Today, in the very next passage in the Bible, Jesus makes a different point: he really points to the very crux of our more
