Advent Sunday - The Wise Men

The accuracy with which God planned for the arrival of the Saviour of the world is staggering, for hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus, God was moving Daniel into a position of religious and political power in readiness for his role in preparing for the Coronation of the Coming King.

The detail with which God moves people into strategic positions is overwhelming. So, as you listen to this message, see how the Maker of the stars, guided those who were lead by His own created stars into alignment for the baby that would become the King of the Jews.

Mark (Ch 3: vs 7-19) - They Came to Jesus

Curiosity will only take you so far; desperation will take you all the way.

Those that needed Jesus left everything and pursued Him, because there was no one like Him. He had the words of eternal life, and He still does, and always will.

So how hungry are you for Jesus? Mildly? Occasionally? Or are you pressing in to Him, because you know that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life?

Let this message help you to gauge what your appetite is really like.

Communion Service - The Joy of the Lord

Though Jesus went to the cross for all of mankind, His focus was not on it. Hebrews 12:2 says that, ‘…who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross…’.

Jesus’ focus was on the Father, being reunited with Him, once He had been raised to new life and then ascended into His presence. So let this message encourage you to look beyond the difficulties that life throws at you, and to keep your eyes focused on Jesus.

Mark (Ch 3: vs 1-6) - Stretch Out Your Hand

Jesus said to the man with the withered hand, “Stretch out your hand”. To Moses, as he stood before the Red Sea, God said, “Stretch out your hand”.

In the natural world, we stretch our muscles to help them get stronger. In the workplace and in education, our minds are stretched so that they can grow in understanding.

In the spiritual realm, the same is true. We need to stretch out to God in order to allow Him to help us to grow in Him. Therefore, as you listen to this message, stretch out to Him and drawer closer to Him.

Mark (Ch 2: vs 18-22) - The Old is No More; The New has Come

Up until the time of Jesus’ death, the Old Covenant of the Old Testament was still in operation. Then after Jesus’ death, a New Covenant was made in His blood.

Salvation in Jesus’ name can only come through His completed work at the cross and not from our own works of the law.

In this message, we discover that the new life that Jesus promises in His Name, can only be received by faith through His grace. What God now accomplishes by His Spirit in His followers, is a new thing which the law can no longer contain, for as Isaiah prophesies, “Behold I will do a new thing.” (43:19)
