Ahead of our new series in the Gospel of Matthew, Pastor Joe takes us through one of the most famous prophecies of the coming Messiah to show us how our quest for a saviour is often misplaced and how we often miss Jesus.
One of our members, Jason Bryan-Brown, unpacks a tricky passage in James about prayer, sickness, sin and faith.
As 2020 begins and we reflect on what kind of year we had in 2019, it is tempting to look at the lives of other people and compare our situation to theirs… to rate whether or not our year was good based on how it stacks up against the experience of others. Pastor Joe helps us contemplate the New Year by unpacking a vital encounter Peter had with Jesus.
Nico Crampton shares with us about the God who comforts us with genuine comfort and what this means for those of us who are suffering and in need of this comfort.
God is good. Sometimes this is easy to say, other times it can seem like the biggest con of all time. As Christians we need to be honest with our struggles with our belief in the goodness of God. Jason Bryan-Brown unpacks a Psalm that helps us to do just that.
Many of us would know the anguish of being falsely accused of wrong-doing or being unfairly treated by those in power. Psalm 17 is a cry for vindication. As intern Karl Scott unpacks this passionate song, we will see how our cries for justice are met and fulfilled in Jesus Christ.
We all know what it is to go through times of distress. We all know the thoughts, doubts and questions that rattle through our brains during times like this. But I reckon we don’t think of these thoughts as worshipful… one of our members, Josh Mays, unpacks Psalm 77 to show us what it means to worship God in and through our distress.
Psalm 92 is unique in that it is the only Psalm with a Sabbath notation. This means that it was probably sung week-by-week in the normal rhythms of life for God’s people. Intern Aaron Needer unpacks this Psalm to show us why it is good for us to worship our God regularly in song.
Peter Muller helps us trace the events of that first Easter Sunday by examining how the news of Jesus’ resurrection impacted the lives of the people He first appeared to.
Matt VanderHeiden (previously of Portuguese Bible Institute) shares with us from a key passage in Jesus’ sermon on the mount.
