2018-01-14 An open Invitation . . . Follow me

2018-01-14 An open Invitation . . . Follow me

Quite often we look at the characters in the Bible and long to be in their shoes. We might not envy them for the lack of development compared to our time. Maybe those more technically challenged might even envy their time of no technology and electronics, but one thing I think we all envy them […]

2018-01-07 Imagine

We started this year in/with our Watchnight service with Walking in the “Mystery of Christ” bringing us to the door labeled “Imagine”. Behind that door nothing is impossible and the sky is the limit. It reminds me of the time in my life when playing games was most important and we have done it with […]

2017-12-31 The Mystery of Christ

2017-12-31 The Mystery of Christ

On Monday we celebrated the birth of Christ. There was a buildup of excitement and expectation since the beginning of October. The window dressings had to be changed, all of a sudden the music selection in the shops changed and a big change could be seen in the way and wording of advertising. Why all […]

2017-12-31 Make room for the King

2017-12-31 Make room for the King

On Monday (25th) I shared the words of Peter Larson who writes, “Despite our efforts to keep Him out, God intrudes. The life of Jesus is bracketed by two impossibilities: a virgin’s womb and an empty tomb. Jesus entered our world through a door marked ‘No entrance’ and left through a door marked ‘No Exit’.” […]

2017-12-25 Grace upon Grace – Jesus, Light of the World

2017-12-25 Grace upon Grace – Jesus, Light of the World

We serve and celebrate a Mighty God! Despite the effort of many generations to eliminate Christ out of Christmas; out of everyday life; out of our Schools; out of Government; and even out of the Marketplace, He will just not go away. Peter Larson writes, “Despite our efforts to keep Him out, God intrudes. The […]

2017-12-24 VICTORY – OVERCOMING THE ENEMY

2017-12-24 VICTORY – OVERCOMING THE ENEMY

Tomorrow is Christmas and as I reflected on Christmas this year I was very aware of the struggles that Joseph and Mary had during Mary’s pregnancy. What would you have felt if your fiancé came to you and told you that she was pregnant but had not made love to anyone? If you were Joseph, […]

2017-12-17 THE DESIGN – CREATION, LAW AND OUR RESPONSIBILITY

2017-12-17 THE DESIGN – CREATION, LAW AND OUR RESPONSIBILITY

As we draw closer to Christmas on our ADVENT journey I would like to suggest that we focus on the birth of Jesus but forget that Jesus is part of the creation. Let us read Genesis 1:26 (NIV): Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule […]

2017-12-10 DIVINE COMPLETION AND PERFECTION

2017-12-10 DIVINE COMPLETION AND PERFECTION

If you are like me, you will find yourself concentrating on the New Testament and only referring back to the Old Testament as reference. This is typically what a New Testament theologian does – and I fall into that category. Today we look at a very interesting subject – the DIVINE COMPLETION AND PERFECTION of […]

2017-12-03 THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST

Today is the first Sunday in the Advent period of 2017. Advent is the time leading up to the birth of Jesus which we celebrate on 25th December each year. The theme for our advent series is “The Light of the World”. As we lead up to Christmas I am yet again challenged with the […]

2017-11-26 I AM SIGNIFICANT ENOUGH TO DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST

2017-11-26  I AM SIGNIFICANT ENOUGH TO DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST

This is the last sermon in this sermon series. I hope that you all have enjoyed the series and have learned as much as I have. As I thought about our life in today’s world I realized that there are two problems that we all struggle with. The one is that we do not realize […]
