Inside Out: 13 – Quick, Fast!

Inside Out: 13 – Quick, Fast!

Sandwiched in between teaching on prayer (which we all recognise is important) and attitudes to money (which we also realise is important), Jesus looks at something which not many of us typically even consider doing – fasting. What’s it all about?

Inside Out: 12 – Teach us to Pray

Inside Out: 12 – Teach us to Pray

Surveys show that a remarkably high percentage of people admit to praying, at least occasionally. Perhaps for some of us, we’re really unsure about how to pray. What do I say? What do I pray about? How does this whole thing work? While for others of us, perhaps those of us who have been Christians [ more… ]

Inside Out: 11 – How not to Pray

Inside Out: 11 - How not to Pray

As we continue our series looking at the Sermon on the Mount, in today’s passage Jesus is talking about Prayer. Of course we pray together when we meet for services and prayer meetings – but how do we pray when we on our own with God? Do we pray at all – or if we [ more… ]

Inside Out: 10 – Turning Righteousness Inside-Out

Inside Out: 10 - Turning Righteousness Inside-Out

All through Matthew chapter 5 (the first part of the Sermon on the Mount, which we’ve been looking at in this series), Jesus has been talking about a way of living which is clearly only achievable with God’s help and power. Now in chapter 6, we see something quite different – very practical disciplines which, [ more… ]

Inside Out: 7 – Happily Ever After?

Inside Out: 7 - Happily Ever After?

“And they both lived happily ever after…” But what happens when two people don’t? Divorce is just as painful today as it was when Jesus spoke about it, but have we correctly understood what he said? That’s our topic for today as we continue our series on the Sermon on the Mount.

Inside Out: 6 – Living with Lust

Inside Out: 6 - Living with Lust

Sex is a topic that, in church, seems either to be avoided altogether, or talked about in very negative ways. But today we’re going to see what Jesus has to say about this in his Sermon on the Mount, as we continue our series looking at the Inside Out kingdom of God that he was [ more… ]

Inside Out: 4 – Good and Angry

Inside Out: 4 - Good and Angry

Sometimes we think we’ve got everything sorted out – for ourselves, for those we love, maybe even for God. Then some idiot comes along and does something that messes it all up. Aaarggh! Today we’re looking at what Jesus has to say in the Sermon on the Mount about anger, and what place that has [ more… ]

Inside Out: 3 – Law or Grace?

Inside Out: 3 - Law or Grace?

What’s the relationship between Grace and Law? Another try at getting our heads around this important and exciting (but sometimes quite hard to understand) question, based on what Jesus says about his fulfilment of the law in Matthew 5. This is part of our series working through the Sermon on the Mount.

Inside Out: 2 – I am the Law

Inside Out: 2 - I am the Law

What does a good life look like – what the Bible calls a “righteous” life? Surely that’s nothing to do with the Jewish law – after all,  Jesus came to free us from the law, didn’t he? Let’s see what Jesus had to say about that, as we continue our series working through the Sermon [ more… ]

Upside Down: 7 – Peace, Man

Upside Down: 7 - Peace, Man

Being a “peacekeeper” sounds like one of the least contentious of the Beatitudes – but is there more to it than meets the eye? As we continue in our series looking at Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, in which he announced the arrival of God’s upside down, life changing Kingdom, we’re still in Jesus’ “introduction” [ more… ]
