The Fear of God

Sarah de Haan's message on Sunday 30th October 2011 is available for download.

In this message, Sarah challenges us to get a hold of the fear of God in our lives; that we might be transformed as we stand in awe, reverence, wonder and amazement of God, who is holy and perfect. Sarah warns us to avoid the extreme of turning God's grace into an excuse for not faithfully seeking to be changed and repenting in the light of God's holiness. A timely message that will not only help us to recognise more fully that God is awesome but that the fear of God in our lives leads us to godly action and life change - to the glory of God.

A.S.K.

Oreste's message on Sunday 23rd October 2011 is available for download.

As we have been working through the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, there would be times if we are honest that we cannot see ourselves living up to the expectations that Jesus has for His followers. In this message Oreste looks at a refreshing and inspiring passage in Matthew where Jesus provides us with a timely reminder of the means by which we are able to walk as Jesus calls us to. It's as simple as A.S.K.ing our Father in heaven - Asking the Father to give us the good things we need, Seeking the Father that we may find those good things of the Kingdom and Knocking on Father God's door that it be opened for us to access those good gifts He has for us. God always intended us to ask Him for help along the journey of discipleship - let's be persistent and bold in our asking, in our praying. The promise for those who do will be beyond your expectations and imagination.

Obedience

Oreste's message on Sunday 16th October 2011 is available for download.

Having previously looked at daily faith and humility as essentials for Jesus followers, leads us to the visible evidence that these qualities exist in the life of the disciple - obedience is that evidence. So obedience is also recognised as an essential for all disciples. It should not be surprising then, that Jesus calls for complete obedience to His commands when He authorised His followers to go and make disciples of all peoples. Be inspired and encouraged as you understand the practical realities of how complete obedience emerges in the life of a disciple by learning from the example of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

The Promise Is For You

Wayne Gillie's message on Sunday 9th October 2011 is available for download.

In this message Wayne explores the promise of the gift of the Holy Spirit as he takes us through a clear biblical imperative to seek the Lord that we may receive this amazing gift. The Holy Spirit as the third person of the Godhead is both God and yet distinct from the Father and Jesus. So to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit is to receive God himself in the fullest possible way. The promise is for you - the most amazing gift intended for all followers of Jesus and not an optional extra.

Lose Your Life, Then Gain It

Sash Stanceski's message on Sunday 2nd October 2011 is available for download.

In this message Sash looks at the life of Moses as an example of a person who demonstrated the kingdom principle that Jesus explained in Luke 9:24 - that is "whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it". Be encouraged and challenged as Sash gives us biblical keys from the life of Moses, to apply in our lives as followers of Jesus, in order that we may lose our life that we may gain it.
