Sermons from December 2019
This Christmas, we look at the impact of HOPE and HARDSHIP and how they often go together! As we again remember the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, we will see Mary’s Surprise (Luke 1:26-27); Mary’s Surrender (Luke 1:38); Mary’s Song (Luke 1:46-56) and Mary’s Sadness (Luke 2:25-35).
In his second message on “God Speaks” Daniel starts off in Heb 1:1-3 reminding us that God speaks powerfully through His Son. He goes through many passages showing us that as we look in Scripture we can see and know God’s guidance for all sorts of situations. We CAN trust God to guide us!
Steve tells the story of the Israelites sending the 12 spies into the Promised Land but only two of them (Caleb and Joshua) trusted God, so the whole nation spent the next 38 years wandering in the desert before coming back to the Jordan, across from Jericho. Now they are ready to trust God and enter the land. Are you prepared to trust God?
We have the whole of Scripture to lead us and to guide us but we need to seek God; we need to seek His will. We also need to be very aware of the sin of unbelief. Jesus came to do the will of His Father. If we want real life – that’s what we need to do too! The big question is; what have you done with Jesus?
