“How to be safe”, Psalm 100

"..we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.”

How can we be safe? What is true safety? And what does Jesus provide that no other person can?

“Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.” (Psalms 100:3 NIV11)

“How God Transforms Lives”, Acts 3

Not one, but two versions of the same sermon surveying the first part of Acts 3 looking at the Spirit’s work in bringing grace-poor and grace-rich people together. We learn lessons about noticing people and expecting the unexpected.

The first is the discussion-style version with the Watford church of Christ, and the second is the interactive version with the Thames Valley churches of Christ.

“How to reap your reward”: Hebrews 12, Acts 8

What it takes to inherit spiritual rewards, and how to live consistent with our faith in those rewards

It is easy to grow weary and lose heart in the Christian race.  Hebrews chapter 12 provides us with the inspiration of Jesus, and Acts chapter 8 provides us with the inspiration of the early Christians. In this lesson, I examine how their examples help us to not give in to the temptation to become weary and lose heart.

“How to Deal with Drifting”, Hebrews Chapter 2

Hebrews series 2018, class 3

What’s the big deal with drifting? The writer to the Hebrews offers a stern warning about its dangers in chapter 2 of the Epistle.

Please leave a comment with your own thoughts, or post a question. “Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” Heb 13.20-21

Tuesday Teaching Tips: “How to include God” – AUDIO

Father, Son, Holy Spirit

Are our lessons really about God? It’s easy to emphasise practical application at the expense of a focus on God.

I share two practical ways to make sure we keep God the main thing.

What are your ideas to keep God front and centre as we speak? Please leave a comment below.

Many thanks,

“Zeal Without Burnout”: “We need inward renewal” – VIDEO

Just as we need food and water to keep our bodies physically alive, so we need the inward renewal of the holy spirit in our hearts and lives. Romans 8.10–11. We have the spirit who raised Jesus from the dead. 2 Corinthians 4.16 – inward renewal day by day is ours. Our physical nature, our mental life, our emotional, intellectual and affectional facets of life are inseparable from the “spiritual” part of us.

What we’re reading: “The Power of One”, Part 6, “Sober-Think”

The cost of Christian unity is high. What will it take for us to avoid the problems of arrogance on the one hand, and insecurity on the other? Are we looking for balance when this may not be our best goal?
