Sermons on Sharing faith
How can we carry the fragrance of Christ, and what does this look like? Robin unfolds five ways we can practically bring the life of Christ authenticity whenever we go. Ephesians 5. 2 Corinthians 2.
Graham Webb speaks to us today about the crucifixion and the turning point this has placed in our lives. We look at the two thieves on the cross and see which one we would put ourselves alongside…the one for Jesus or the one against Him? Seems like a simple questions, but the outcomes of choosing Jesus are more wonderful than we could have ever imagined.
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.
Dr Dwight Prior said “The people with least knowledge usually have the strongest opinions”…What’s more important you, getting your opinion across or find out about the person’s life? Richard brings us wisdom from Ecclesiastes, showing that our thoughts and beliefs are important to get straight as we share with others.
Jesus mixed with all kinds of people, usually the people that the ‘religious’ didn’t mix with but he also mixed with the religious types too.

Are you a planner? Do you like to have everything going like clockwork? Or maybe you just go with the flow. Either way when our plans are interrupted it’s hard to know what to do. What if, like Jesus, you see exactly what God is doing in every interruption and are expecting His power to move? Find out what it means to be tuned into God this way and live in this amazing power.
Dave looks at two well known accounts of Jesus calming storms; one external and one internal. Who then is this Jesus who has power to calm storms? Jesus’ challenge is ‘where are you putting your faith?’ Are you in a storm that feels out of control? Who or what are trusting in. And if Jesus has calmed your storms, your challenge is to head out and tell those you meet about what he’s done.
