Sermons on Chosen
Graham Anns from ChristCentral challenges us to ask for MORE from God. Are you willing to be bold and ask God, who is a good Father, to give you more than you’ve yet experienced of Him?
As Silvia shares from Jeremiah about the potter and the clay she took us to Isaiah 1:18 – that our sins though red like scarlet will be white as snow – pure and Holy. The call was to be willing to change and obedient to God.
Rob Coleman from Grace Church Bolton speaks to us today on thinking like sons (and not like slaves). Looking at the story of the prodigal son Rob challenges us about how we are thinking when it comes to how loved, accepted and chosen we are in the Father’s eyes. Are you simply doing your best to get by, hoping that God will be pleased with you; or are you living in the fullness and freedom of your sonship?
David Vine from the Longcroft Christian Fellowship, Wirral. David gives us three keys to the treasure God has placed in us, and how we can allow this treasure to affect our lives and the lives of those we meet. 2 Corinthians 4
Today Graham spurs us on to take hold of how God calls us. He looks at what is mean to come into his presence and for God to send us out, and what can stop us from fulfilling that calling.
You were designed for intimacy with God, for deep relationship with Him. You were designed to hear Him and to know Him, to trust Him and be trusted by Him. His desire for intimacy with his children is undiminished and He wants to go deeper with you. The audio sermon includes words of knowledge given during the meeting

Alison reminds us today that our identity is found in God not in what we think about ourselves or what others say about us. God has given us all that we need to do the things he has asked us to do and he makes us sufficient and strong when we are trusting him.
Paul here in Ephesians encourages us to keep walking. To walk in love, to walk as Children of light. As Christ has shone on us we are no longer darkness but we are light. We make an impact on the world around us by being who we are. “You’re not in the light, you ARE light…”
We have not only been saved by grace we are also being made new by grace. Today Dave explores the treasures of Ephesians 4 where we understand what God has done for us and receive it from him, to be filled with the Spirit and to walk in His amazing plans for us.
God is at work all the time amongst us, it is He who has joined us together and enabling us by grace to work and worship together for His glory. Dave shares his heart that you continue to know the truth that God has built you into his church to love and worship him together with the rest of the body. You belong.
Dave continues our series on Encounters with God, looking at the life of Jacob (the deceiver). It’s amazing how long we can go on striving to win the approval of God and of people. But like Jacob learns we find freedom in embracing our true identity of those who belong to, and are chosen by God.
This week Chris speaks to us about walking in who we’ve become in God – getting hold of the great things God has put into us and has stored up for us, simply because we belong to Him. He has paid for you to know the fullness of His favour and love – you can’t earn it, but you live in it through faith.
Who are you? No really, who are YOU – what defines who you are? This week Dave digs into where our true identity comes from – the implications of which affect every area of our lives as we live courageously for God.
God is looking for increase in each one of us, he’s looking for partnering with him in kingdom growth. Today Chris looks how God’s sees us, our identity in Him and how this leads to living our lives renewed for more growth as we work with Him – seeing His kingdom come. God transforms desolate people, to use them to transform desolate cities.
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.
