We’re in week two of our series ‘Living in the Light of Eternity’, Sue examines our assignment in this life; to share what God has done in our lives. The scriptures are clear; this gift is not to be kept to ourselves, but shared. (Apologies for the sound quality this week, the file wasn’t edited […]
This week, Sue looks at the theme of perseverance demonstrated in Acts 14. In the face of extreme opposition, the members of the early Church carried on preaching the Word, doing what God had commissioned them to do. Their example is an inspiration to us to, as it says in Hebrews, “Let us run with perseverance […]
Following on from last week’s focus on handling change, Sue takes us through the tumultuous events around Paul’s arrest in Jerusalem, and his defence before the ruling powers in that area. His identity was absolutely secure in Christ, and so Paul could endure all things. He had deposited good things in his ‘God box’, spent […]
This week, Sue takes us into the amazing events of Acts 12, when persecution broke out against the early Church. Like Peter, we can be in desperate situations, but God is on our side. When God calls us, we have to stand up for the chains to fall off! Apologies for the sound quality in […]
Preaching from Mark 10:46-51, Sue focuses on the words of the crowd to the man Jesus healed: “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you”. Sue highlights the four things this story shows we can do in response to Jesus’ call: shout out, shake off, step forward, speak. Jesus is calling us, will we answer? […]
What do we treasure? Sue talks on Jesus’ twin parables in Matthew 13:44-46. Jesus and his Kingdom are worth everything we have to give. Everything that God gives us is a free gift, all we have to do is seek it.
What has Jesus given us? Speaking from 2 Peter 1:3-11, Sue demonstrates the qualities that Jesus asks us to live by. Goodness, self-control, perseverance, mutual affection and love. They are all a choice, and within our grasp. What will you choose to do?
In our ongoing series about the four purposes of Church, Sue talks about the Church as an army; the daily battle we face is one that we have been especially chosen for. God will always be with us.
This week, Sue tackles what can be a difficult topic to understand; the priesthood of all believers. In the the time of the Old Testament, only a specially prepared and cleansed priest could enter the Holy of Holies (the inner place of the temple), but now, thanks to Jesus’ work, every believer has access to […]
