Sermons by Rick Robertson
Jesus tells us again and again to ask, ask, ask and believe as we do. As we dig into John 15 we discover why asking is so important in a faith filled relationship with God.
As we approach the conclusion of our journey through Ephesians we are introduced to The Opposition. Looking at what it means to ‘wrestle right’ with the issues of our life and the trouble in the world, we discover that we can choose to belong to God’s victory plan as we step out to change the world with Him.
Relationships can be one of the most rewarding and most frustrating parts of life and we need a lot of help to get them right. The good news is that God has restored our relationship with himself 100% – and now He gives us His power to ‘do’ relationships in a whole new way. We can live with open hearts towards everyone we meet and everyone we know – we are marked by His grace and His love.
Today we hear a story of two kings, the right king and the wrong king. As we follow this narrative from 1 Kings chapter 1, we reflect on who the true king is in our lives, and how the words we use are either of God’s kingdom; building us up in Him, or of another kingdom entirely.
How far will God go to save lives? According to these parables Jesus tell us that the shepherd searches until He finds that which is lost. As we look at these stories of searching, we see how God works in a variety of ways to bring home His lost; and He is wonderfully working through us to reach people in amazing ways everyday.
