Jesus’ name is my reason to rejoice

Jesus' name is my reason to rejoice

“…being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that […]

Repent…and…receive the Holy Spirit

Repent...and...receive the Holy Spirit

Peter has learnt from his own experience that repentance is the foundation for God renewing us through the Holy Spirit. He reminds his hearers of the foundations of their faith which was proclaimed by John the Baptist and then by Jesus, ” Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  Peter says later that […]

Fatherhood

Fatherhood

What is a father’s great task? To bring himself and his family to God. That task requires self discipline, wisdom, patience, strength and understanding. How could a father’s task be done unless he remembered his children were created by a loving , wise and merciful God who is with his children – and with him […]

Jesus Transforms Family Life

Jesus Transforms Family Life

Martyn Lloyd-Jones said ” I do not listen to a man who tells me how to solve the world’s problems if he cannot solve his own personal problems. If a man’s home is in a state of discord, his opinions about the state of the nation or the state of the world are purely theoretical.” Jesus […]

I will pour out my Spirit on all people

I will pour out my Spirit on all people

God has a great desire to pour out his Spirit upon his people. Just as Moses had this desire as God’s servant. “And a young man ran and told Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” And Joshua the son of Nun, the assistant of Moses from his youth, said, “My lord Moses, stop them.” […]

God has made him Lord and Saviour

God has made him Lord and Saviour

Peter’s sermon contains a clear picture of Jesus as Lord and Saviour.  ” This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses. Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing. For David did not ascend […]

Love at First Sight

Love at First Sight

I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name’s sake, and you have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first.  Revelation 2:3-5

When the Day of Pentecost came….

When the Day of Pentecost came….

Acts 2:1-13 Pentecost, also known as ‘The Feast of Weeks’ or Shavuot the Day of Firstfruits Numbers 28 v 26, was a festival of joy and thanksgiving celebrating the completion of the harvest season. These themes bring to mind Jesus’ words to some Greeks who said; “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” “The hour has […]

“…the scriptures had to be fulfilled…”

"...the scriptures had to be fulfilled..."

Acts 1:15-26 Luke’s attention to detail helps us to know that the new covenant community began with about 120 disciples of Jesus devoting themselves to prayer for 10 days. This passage commences with Peter quoting the scriptures, “….the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke beforehand by the mouth of David…” Acts […]

Building Walls

Building Walls

Consider, if you will, your own life. The times of utter hopelessness. Everything you once cherished is gone. Every fabric of your being has been torn from you and the fragile self confidence you depended on for existance has now disintegrated. Leaving you as Judah. Scattered, burned down, desecrated and torn. Nehemiah gives us hope, […]
