Sermons on Luke
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.
Today is your day of jubilee; your day of restoration. Jonathan Kent unfolds the amazing new reality we are now living in – as God’s spirit filled people. Today there is good news about God’s ‘jubilee’ in your life, the day that everything begins to change.
We react to news in many different ways – news can be amazing or very troubling. Here as we come to the completion of our journey through the book of Luke; we find the disciples are troubled and doubting what’s going on, they hadn’t realised just what an amazing thing was unfolding. Jesus appears and speaks straight into their fear – as He speaks straight into yours today. Fear and confusion is turned into confidence, worship and renewed lives.
How will you respond to the news of Jesus’ resurrection? Are you a sceptic? Or are beginning to marvel at the possibility of a renewed life? Listen as Dave unfolds how the disciples reacted differently to the resurrection, but how their response (and your response) makes all the difference in the world.
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 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…
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.
As we approach the summit of our series in Luke, Dave challenges us to stand strong in life as Jesus himself stands with us in every situation. Looking at the amazing outworking of God’s plan throughout history, we see a God who is for us not against us – His good plans for you will never fail.
How do we get to a place of delighting in God when there are so many things that can get in the way? We need the Holy Spirit – He is the key to our lives being full of the boldness and confidence to live for and worship God. This week we look at what it means to be filled with the Holy Spirit and how we can freely ask for this gift. We also look at what a massive…
Sometimes what we hoped for from life seems a long way off, especially when things are going wrong. As Jonathan Kent takes us on a journey with a pair of discouraged disciples, we find that Jesus is much closer than we could have ever hoped or imagined.
We live in a world where we want everything and want it now – you could call it a drive through lifestyle. But when we really take a step back we see that some of the things we’re after are not part of God’s plan. Dave gets us refocused on what really matters in life as he unfolds what an amazing mission we are on with God’s.
Life is full of questions and Jesus is on the firing line again today as He is questioned about life after death. These questions are not going to get fully answered though, until the religious leaders of the time see Jesus raised from the dead. It’s only when we fully believe that Jesus came back to life and lives today do our big questions of life start making sense.
We can expect too little from God….if fact the bible says Jesus is greater than we could possibly imagine; so how is your view of who Jesus is? Is your Jesus just in a Sunday box? Is your Jesus just in a problem solving box? Dave opens up more from the book of Luke revealing that God’s plan is greater than those things – and we can expand our thinking and our lives to see more of God.
Have you ever wondered how to live expectant of God’s power at working every day? We all want to live the new life God has given us to the fullest and Chris gives us four keys we can use to step into all God has for us – prepare to see the impossible made possible as you take God fuelled risks today! The John Wimber video Chris refers to in this talk can be watched here.
The world is trying to define and separate state and religion, to draw a line, but God is clearly involved in both – so what’s the key to this question that Jesus is asked here “Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar?” The key is not who our money belongs to, or who owns what, but who our hearts belong to…
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.
