Alan Stanley: Do you get love?

by

We can be the most on point people when it comes to the practices of our faith, bible reading, church attendance, ministry involvement, and yet still completely miss the point of what following Jesus is all about.  Alan Stanley from BST takes us through how we can be so blind to the primary call of […]

On Being Wise

by

Our series on Wisdom Literature is called “Every Good Path” but if you asked our generation for wisdom they might say, “Every path is good.”  It might seem like this relativism sets people free and makes life easier because there are now so many options when it comes to what is right. But instead all […]

Unnatural Love

by

Followers of Christ are to be defined by their characteristic behaviour of loving enemies and doing good to others without expecting anything in return. As Christians we need to be living the life that Jesus calls us to. This sermon helps to show us what that looks like, what it doesn’t look like, and exactly […]

The Community that Clings to Jesus

by

As the preacher concludes his sermon it seems as though he is just spraying out a whole bunch of rules or laws that he expects the people to embrace. But we have to remember his overarching passion to call the people to cling to Jesus. Because these rules and laws are not a regime of […]

Waiting for Love

He is stronger

by

As we continue to summarise the big themes of this book of Jeremiah, today we measure the full weight of the destruction that the nation of Judah brought upon themselves. But when we see the mess they made we will see that there is still hope… hope that comes the heart of our God. 

Two Ways to Love

by

Whether it is love songs, love stories or the classic Disney Princess movies we are very familiar with what the world thinks of love.  Unfortunately love in the world rarely works out the way that the songs and movies seem to suggest that it will.  When John speaks of love he speaks of something far […]

Gospel Empowered Love

by

As we continue in John’s letter to the churches we have to remember that he is writing to people who are plagued by false teachers who were trying to capture their hearts and minds.  John has been constantly calling for the people to see the flaws in these teachers and see the hope and assurance […]

The Love of the Father

by

A lot of people think that Christianity gives you nothing but a boring life of rules and restrictions now and offers you nothing but a boring life of halo-wearing and harp-playing after death.  As we continue to walk our way through John’s letter to the churches we will see that it is nothing of the […]
