Man in the Mirror 1

Man in the Mirror 1

What do you see when you look in the mirror? The Bible says that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made”. We were created to be loved. But we often get caught up in patterns of self-loathing and shame. Maybe it’s time to take a look at our relationship with the “Man in the Mirror”, and [ more… ]

Inside Out: 18 – A Tale of Two…

Inside Out: 18 - A Tale of Two...

Today is the last part of our series working through the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus’ description of what God’s new upside down, inside out Kingdom looks like, and what it means to live in it. At the end of the sermon, Jesus attacks the religious leaders who have been listening to him, and challenges [ more… ]

Inside Out: 16 – Pause

Inside Out: 16 - Pause

Are we supposed to make judgements, or not? You might be forgiven for being slightly confused about that question if you read what Jesus says on the subject.

Extraordinary Nobodies: 1 – Hungry Boy

Extraordinary Nobodies: 1 - Hungry Boy

Most of us can name some of the people we think of as “superheroes” of the Bible – the famous characters like Elijah, Peter, Esther or Mary. But there are hundreds of people in the Bible who only get a passing mention – are they worth our attention? We’re starting a series today looking at [ more… ]

Psalm 27

Psalm 27

What’s your biggest fear in life? Not many of us could match David (shepherd, songwriter, soldier, and king) for a life packed full of things to be quite legitimately terrified about – and yet David was able to write in Psalm 27, “why should I be afraid?” What gave him such confidence, and what can [ more… ]

I Am: 8 – The Resurrection and the Life

I Am: 8 - The Resurrection and the Life

There’s an old saying that two things are unavoidable in life: death, and taxes. That isn’t entirely true – lots of people seem to avoid paying any tax! As for death, though, a few people have delayed it, but only one person has beaten it completely. As we finish our series “I am” based on [ more… ]

I Am: 7 – The True Vine

I Am: 7 - The True Vine

We’re nearly at the end of our series looking at who Jesus claimed that he was. Most of the other “I am” statements from John’s gospel are pretty clear straight away – “I am the Way”, or “I am the Good Shepherd”. But in today’s passage, Jesus said “I am the true vine”. What does [ more… ]

I Am: 6 – The Way, The Truth and The Life

I Am: 6 - The Way, The Truth and The Life

We’re in a teaching series looking at the “I am” sayings of Jesus. Today’s passage is one of the most controversial statements that Jesus made – that he is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and that nobody comes to the Father except by him. Is that something we can really take seriously in [ more… ]

I Am: 5 – The Good Shepherd

I Am: 5 – The Good Shepherd

Someone once wrote that the vast majority of problems in the Christian life stem from us not reflecting, ruminating, and resting on Christ as our Good Shepherd. That’s the description of himself that we are looking at today, as we continue our series “I Am”.

I Am: 4 – The Door

I Am: 4 – The Door

Sheep rustling is big business in the UK! But that’s nothing new – because that is exactly the problem that Jesus is dealing with in our passage today, and he has a solution to the problem.
