At Christmas time, we can discard so many unwanted gifts, yet God sent His Son, Jesus, the most precious gift ever, to redeem us. Therefore, let us never discard the Son of God, for when we encounter Jesus, the child who was born in the stable, we encounter God.
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.
Joseph is very rarely spoken about in the account of the nativity, yet through him we see so much of God. Therefore, let this message open your eyes to the heart of our loving Heavenly Father, and the adoption that we receive through Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Paul calls us to imitate him just as he imitates Christ. But who else in the Bible is a good example of how we should live our lives?
Mary, the mother of Jesus, is just one of many people in the scriptures that we can learn from as we look at how she lived her life for Jesus.
Who is this Man, Jesus, to us? Is He simply a baby that came at Christmas time, or perhaps someone that we sing songs about?
We must answer this question in order to determine our destiny in life.
Jesus lived the life of a servant, always putting others before Himself.
This Remembrance Day Service message allows us an opportunity to look at ourselves and ask the simple question: Am I a servant to others, or am I expecting others to serve me?
Who is Jesus? Who is He to you?
Let this message reveal to you who He is and what He has personally done for you.
Jesus is the light of the world, crossing time and space to reach mankind in order to bring him freedom.
This light has shone from the beginning, from the empty tomb and will continue to shine forever more. So, as you listen to this message, let His light in you shine, and never hide it.
The seed that the farmer sows in the parable is always the same, yet the ground differs. Therefore, as you listen to this message, let your ears and eyes be open to the state of your heart, as to whether it is hard or fertile ground; for good fruit in our lives will only come forth where the seed of His word can flourish.
There is a sin that is unforgivable, but what is it? How do we know if we’ve committed it ourselves?
This message teaches us about this and the danger of hardening our hearts towards God and the devastating consequences of doing so.
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.
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.
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.
God’s rest and His yoke await us, if only we would receive His invitation and take off our own yokes. Therefore, discover the Lord of the Sabbath in this message, as Jesus is challenged by the Pharisees concerning His disciples’ work on the Sabbath day.
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)
When the Church shares Communion, it should do so in a sacred manner.
This message reminds us of both why we share Communion and also the holiness in which we should partake of it.
Jesus dined with the lost, and He died for the lost, for that was His mission.
As followers of Christ, are we quick to judge those that Jesus died for, or are we quick to hold out the hand of love to them?
As you listen to this message, allow the Holy Spirit to help you live and walk with the same compassion that Jesus lived by.
Jesus' did not confine Himself to one village or city to declare His good news. Instead, He travelled to many places, ensuring that His teachings were not restricted to a few.
There are people in our lives who need to be brought to Jesus to hear His good news for themselves. Therefore, let this message inspire you to reach out to them and ‘carry’ them to His feet.
When Jesus established God’s New Covenant in His own blood, the Old Covenant was made obsolete.
This message explains why the Old Covenant had to be made obsolete, and how Jesus fulfilled the requirements of the Old Covenant in order to seal the God’s New Covenant with His own blood.
Jesus walked in authority, which was recognised by so many people around Him.
This message looks at the personal fruit in Jesus’ life that made it possible for Him to walk with such authority, and how every Christian can do the same.
