Inside or Out?

There is nothing outside a person that by going into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him. - Mark 7:15 We’ve heard the expression “It’s what’s on the inside the counts.”  The idea is meant to highlight something that most…

Committing to the truth

It was only a matter of weeks before the new church plant in Thessalonica began being persecuted and slandered by the surrounding community.  Motivated by an influential and aggressive minority, many ordinary people began attacking these new followers of Jesus without really understanding why they were doing it.  One man…

Will you eat with them?

Today we reach the conclusion of the book of Jonah and our six-part series. Over the weeks we’ve explored the difficult struggle Jonah faced when God offered forgiveness and mercy to Israel’s (and therefore Jonah’s) violent and corrupt enemies. I praise God that such an easily relatable book was included…

Running From Good

Today we begin a series on the book of Jonah. It’s the story of the prophet who runs away from God. Jonah avoids doing the good thing that God had asked him to do and heads in the opposite direction. Now there’s something we can all relate to. Surprisingly, people…

10 years of the iPhone

It was a special anniversary this year for Apple. The iPhone, released initially in 2007, reached its 10th year of production. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been patiently waiting for the revealing of the 10th iPhone, iPhone X.  Even if you hate Apple products and think they’re overpriced luxury…

Hope

One thing we have in common is that we all have hopes for the future.  Holidays, a relationship, a family,  a new possession, success in our pursuits, better health—as people we can’t help but hope. In fact, even on the most ordinary of days, we’ve hoped for more things and…

Tell People the Truth.

We want the good news of Jesus Christ to be the clearest message that our church communicates. We want it to be clear because it’s the most important message we can communicate. Nothing else is as important as the truth about Jesus. People can only get to God through Jesus.…

’Esoteric’ and other words we should never use

”Esoteric” refers to language that is only understood by or meant for a select few who have special knowledge that lets them understand it. The word itself is probably unfamiliar to most of us. Let’s hope we never have to read it again! From technical terms used in any specialised…

Using your difference

If you like cooking, chances are you don’t mind letting others eat part of the meal from time to time. If you’re good at administration, chances are you don’t mind organising the odd group outing or balancing a spreadsheet. If you’re good at teaching, chances are you don’t mind sharing…

Winning the battle, but losing the war.

People are always more important than arguments. People are more important than looking clever on Facebook. People have true, permanent value before God. Jesus prayed for his enemies. Jesus loved his enemies. Jesus loved arrogant people who were not open to examining the evidence his life clearly demonstrated. Love covers…
