Madi Simpson preaches from the Gospel of John, chapter 11, where Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead.
Jesus encourages Mary and Martha to trust in his power to raise their brother from the dead, stretching their faith, and showing that he can always be trusted, whatever the circumstances. Jesus can use our faith, however small, however wobbly, to bring hope to the world and to do great things in our lives.
Rev Alan Bing preaches from the story of Elisha and King of Aram (2 Kings 6:8-23) and the healing of the blind man (John 9:13-41).
Are we willing to take the opportunities to speak up for Jesus from the heart, even on our own, or in a hostile situation? When we are positive, loving and courageous in the way we share our faith in Jesus, we will lead others to know him, the way, the truth and the life.
Madi Simpson continues our series on Generosity, looking at the story of Nehemiah (Nehemiah 13:14-end) and the healing of the lame man by the Pool of Bethesda (John 5:1-18). We should use our actions, not to serve our own ends, or to fulfil rules and regulations, but considering how we can respect the needs and concerns of those we are called to serve, following Jesus’ example of selflessness and sacrifice.
Peter Taylor considers the story of the Wedding in Cana (John 2:1-11). Whatever difficulty or problem we have in our lives, the first thing we should do is to ask Jesus into the situation.
David Parkinson from Christians Against Poverty introduces the work of CAP and encourages the church to support the CAP Debt Help Centre which has just been opened at the Parish Church.
Alan Bing preaches from 1 Timothy 6:6-19. Paul encourages us to be content with what we have, not always looking for more and concerned for our own welfare, but thankful to God for all he has given us, and willing to share generously and to use our gifts sacrificially in God’s service
Brian Bull preaches from 1 Timothy 2:5: “There is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”
As illustrated from the story of Joseph and his brothers, Reuben, Joseph and Judah all provide examples of the mediator role, and remind us of how Jesus, through his position as mediator, introduces us into the presence of God the Father, and provides for us from God’s abundant riches.
God calls us to share in his mediator role, standing before God in prayerful intercession for the world, and representing God before the world by sharing his message and witnessing by our example of God’s love and compassion.
Jen Cox looks at the stories of the Lost Sheep and the Lost Coin in Luke 15. Jesus, unlike the Pharisees and religious of his day, loved to spend time with “tax-collectors and sinners” because he valued the eternal worth of each individual. and came into the world to seek those who were lost, however far they strayed from God. God loves each one of us and we can always trust him and come to him with confidence to ask his forgiveness and give us the strength to follow his purpose for our lives.
Andy Dykes preaches from Luke 14. Jesus tells his Pharisee hosts the parables of the wedding feast, and the banquet, condemning them for taking the best seats and disregarding those who are worse off than themselves. Jesus encourages us to take the lowest positions, showing humility and compassion for the poor, and turning the world’s standards on their head.
