Christ

living for Christ?

Some outtakes or summary from Sunday’s talk with our church family……. From the brilliance of Jonathan Edwards – the puritan, not the triple-jumper! As a young adult mid 1800’s – Jonathan Edwards set down on paper a series of thoughts and practices to help cultivate growth in grace. These resolutions are immense, and Edwards would re-read this […]

five on Friday

“…There is a certain time for significant events and seasons which occur in a servant of God’s life. This is especially true for ministry. If God has called you to a specific work, there is a time in which that work will find its greatest fulfilment and its widest impact. If you launch out and try to […]

humbled

as ever to grapple with God’s word. And so today the invited passage, is these immense verses from Colossians 3. It’s another expansive brilliant invitation. To put on Christ. To be renewed and reformed by the very life of the Holy Spirit. To be clothed with Christ. How about it……?

is Jesus enough….?

I’m troubled by this question….. Am I more interested in changing the world or loving Jesus?  “Today we have substituted doctrinal belief for personal belief, and that is why so many people are devoted to causes and so few are devoted to Jesus Christ. People do not really want to be devoted to Jesus, but […]

the simplicity of Christ, alone….

Pauls words…. “I am afraid that ……….your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:3 The main thing about following Jesus is to see that the main thing remains the main thing. That is what Paul is saying. The main thing is simple, uncluttered commitment to Christ. […]

front & centre

….is it possible to forget the gospel of grace?….. …..is the cross of Jesus, less than front & centre? “It is impossible to overestimate the importance of Christ’s Cross. For whether we are thinking about the necessity of the Cross, the meaning of the Cross, the preaching of the Cross, the offense of the Cross, […]
