Sermons on Courage
Chris shares a message about courage from 1 Samuel 14 regarding Jonathan and his armour bearer. He emphasises the importance of courage individually and corporately as a church and discusses the vision of the church that God is beginning to reveal to us – not just a local church, but an apostolic hub where people are saved, healed, trained, commissioned and sent out; a place of encountering the presence of God and a place with connections throughout the wirral. Main…
God wants to move you forward into the plans and amazing destiny he has designed for you. Today as Chris speaks from 1 Samuel he puts some powerful tools into our our hands to enable us to step up and take hold of God’s purposes in our lives.
As we celebrate International Day at Jubilee Church Wirral, Dave speaks about Abraham, the Father of Nations, who had to believe in God even when he could not see the promise. He walked in faith and trust in what God said and he was called the Friend of God and Father of Many Nations.
Chris kicks off a new series on Pursuing the Miraculous this week with ‘Miracle Mandate’. We haven’t been saved to live ordinary lives, but extraordinary! We are following in the footsteps of Jesus with His power working through us, but what does that look like in your life? And are you prepared to step up for God and live as a pioneer in your sphere of influence…
This new community of the church that Paul has written about in Ephesians is a community of love and good works but its how we get to those that is also important. We need to pray for one another, encourage one another and give much grace to one another. His courage in your hearts and His clarity in your vision.
Learn from the warriors who have won battles with God throughout the bible. In the battle warriors get wounded but we can learn to heal up quickly, get back up and make a difference for Jesus. As Graham shows us what it means to be a warrior we discover how prophesy drives us forwards, that God is always working our battles for good, so we can rejoice in our amazing God.
… that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being. (Eph 3:16) Paul prays for strength for the Ephesian church, the strength found in the Father’s presence, by being filled with the Spirit. There is power at work in us so we can pray and see more than we ever thought possible and know that in the church, God will be glorified.
Arlo challenges us about what it means to truly live for God and understand His calling on your life. This looks different for all of us – allow God to speak to you about stepping out for Him as you listen to Arlo’s amazing story of transformation. What does it mean for you to be all out for God in your life today?
Are you a faith champion like Elijah – passionate for God but then confronted with the challenges of life? Familiarity as they say breeds contempt, however believers need to guard against performance and rather serve God in truth and in Spirit. Michael explores the riches of the text in 1 Kings 19:1-18 and unfolds some daily practical applications relevant to our Christian walk.
When God’s story for Abram didn’t seem to be going the way he’d expected he told him to “Lift up your eyes”. Abram had to lift his eyes of faith to believe God’s promises, even though he couldn’t yet see how they would unfold. This week we welcome Michael from Grace Church Stoke-on-Trent to come and share this amazing story of how God gives us promises, but how we need to take hold of these promises again by faith. God will breath new life…
How often do we struggle along with anxiety, forgetting that God is waiting for us to bring it to Him. As Jesus faces His greatest trial He falls to His knees before His Father – going to God in the darkness of the garden, He talks with His Father and comes out in the light. As Dave unfolds to us the story of Jesus’ darkest hour, we discover what it means to bring our own anxiety to God and find a peace that goes…
Charlotte Webb from Jubilee Church Liverpool challenges the way we approach God in our lives. She asks what is the meaning of true joy and how can it be part of our everyday experience? We need to come to a new place of thinking, expecting God to breakthrough, but equally trusting in His sovereignty to bring about His perfect plans. Charlotte shares a story that brought her to a new place of finding joy in God’s sovereignty.
Do we respond to authority that punishes us when we do wrong or authority that corrects us out of genuine love? Dave looks at authority from three different angles; showing us that as we stand firm in God in our lives, we can be true world changers.
Divine healing is a key theme running through the bible; God showing His amazing grace through physically healing people. Michael focuses today on the story of Naaman, who was trusting in his status, rather trusting in God’s grace, causing a blockage to God’s healing. We unfold five key characters in this tale and see where our own hearts stand when it comes to an expectation of God’s healing power in everyday life.
How often do we look at our circumstances and say to ourselves “when things change I can start serving God”? Graham looks at the amazing life of Paul in prison, and how powerfully God used him, even when in chains. He challenges us to see how God is able to work though our lives regardless of our circumstances and situations.
We welcome Martin Dickson to share about our royal calling in God. As Martin opens up this amazing truth, we see we are created to act like God, killing giants and seeing lives changed. Martin kicks this session off by sharing the vision behind ‘Safe Families for Children‘, an inspirational charity that is having an impact upon families in crisis across the UK.
