  • Embracing Grace

    Contributed by Isaac Butterworth on Apr 2, 2022

    The vast majority of people do not "accept" Christ (Luke 4:24) but refuse the "favor" (grace) He offers (v. 19). God has sent Christ to offer His grace. We must embrace the grace offered in Christ. Luke shows us how.

    There’s a key word in this passage that I would like to point out. It is not obvious in the English, so it’s a bit tricky. But the word ‘favor’ in verse 19 and the word ‘acceptable’ in verse 24 render the same Greek word, which is dektos. In fact, in the King James Version it is translated more

  • Anointed For Mission [lectionary 3c]

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Dec 30, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    Leave the success of your life to a power greater than you. Just do the things you were anointed for. Let a power greater than you take care of the ‘how.’

    The theme in our Readings this Sunday is that the ‘opening of the Scriptures’ is consonant with ‘the opening of the eyes’. The use of physical seeing as a metaphor for spiritual insight is commonplace. Those that are blind(ed), are unable to read the Scriptures. E.g. Two young fish are swimming more

  • Making Jesus Famous

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Jan 27, 2010

    A short but important sermon for a Wednesday morning Communion. Jesus made himself famous in the power of the Spirit in word and deed. We are called to do the same.

    Is news about Jesus travelling fast in Billericay? Perhaps for some people the news has come and gone and is now in the past, almost forgotten, occasionally recalled when something happens – a subconscious memory; a little bit like the Boxing Day Tsunami – when we think about it we more
