Getting the balance right (message recordings)

This morning we finished what has been many months of work reading through, and applying the message of the Book of Exodus to our lives. The great themes of the book, God as saviour, lawgiver, and lord have been a privilege to give time and prayer to over this time. Someone said no other book has the pattern of our redemption more clearly marked out in it Continue reading “Getting the balance right (message recordings)”

Doing the Work, and Staying Free (Sermon Recordings)

Reading Exodus 36 today it gave us opportunity to think about the good things God has given to us, and the the way He would have us to use them. At a time when everyone is expecting to use the natural World for their own ends, God seeks that we use all that He has made for His glory, and find our satisfaction in that.

You can listen to the message here: Do the Work.

To contrast with that responsibility we seek to fulfill before God, we need to remember, as Galatians 5:1-18 states so clearly, we put no trust in our works, but our whole trust is, what we do for God can never be constituted as our righteousness, only what Christ has done for us can save.

My evening message: Staying Free.

 

Don’t be a fool! (sermon recording – 16.9.12)

This evening we were reading Galatians 3:1-11 heralded by the famous line ‘You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you?’

This is a much stronger insult than it might be viewed as today, and was a very forcible rebuke to his Christian readers who were drifting from the grace of God in the Gospel towards a legalistic form of worship. Continue reading “Don’t be a fool! (sermon recording – 16.9.12)”

Sunday August 12th sermon recording.

This Sunday’s ministry came from the books of Exodus and Galatians.

In the morning we read Exodus 31:12-18 concerning the Sabbath. Hence the sermon title being simply: Rest.

If you do choose to listen, please be warned in advance, half way through I realised that I had skipped a whole section of my notes which was rather off putting, especially when handling such a critical, and sensitive subject. There were also some ‘you had to be there’ references too.

In the evening we read Galatians 2:1-13, and entered it through verse 2 where Paul confides something about a crisis of confidence he experienced, and how he dealt with it. So my title: Resolving a crisis of confidence.
