Sermons on Family
Dave explains God’s heart for marriage and how much we need God’s spirit and amazing grace for marriage to be successful. We also see that there is a far deeper mystery to marriage that points straight to amazing love Jesus has for His church….
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.
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.
This challenging word from Sylvia teaches how we should choose to use our tongues to bless and not to curse. Looking at Luke 15 she tells the story of her own breakthrough in forgiveness and how we can find freedom though letting go of a grudge and choosing to not complain – being thankful.
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.
