Sermons by Rick Robertson
You are shaped in your faith by the people God has put you with – what steps are you taking to make sure you are connected and growing in church life? Rick share from Act 2 continuing our series on making disciples.
Looking at the parables of the mustard seed and the yeast from Luke, Rick helps us understand the significance of the small things in our lives, and how God uses the things that we don’t think are up to much for His Kingdom.
As we continue our series in Acts ” Believers in Action”, Rick looks at the resurrection of Eutychus. Together we explore the fundamental purposes of healing and resurrection today, as this points us back towards Jesus’s victory of death and how His life now lives in us as Christians today. Bible refs: Acts 20:1-16, Romans 6:10-11, Colossians 1:27, John 1:4-5, John 5:24, John 14:2, John 14:12, John 16:7. Here’s a link to the resurrection story of Ian McCormack that Rick mentioned…
How to move into a new place of giving and generosity that is fully connected to your new life Jesus with Jesus. 2 Corinthians 8:1-15
It’s often easier to say we’re going to live our lives for God than actually following it through. Today Rick gives us a key to unlocking a life that is live in freedom to truly live for Jesus. Bible passages: Joshua 24:2-18 Ezekiel 36: 24-28 Matthew 26:20-30
We all want to live courageous lives, but how do we get that courage? Where does courageous come from? As Rick unpacks Gideon’s story from the book of Judges, He reveals how God is working to build courageous faith in you.
Drawing from the carol O Little Town of Bethlehem we look at what it means to look with God at our own Bethlehems and invite Jesus to overcome our fears and fill with confident hope.
As we reach the halfway point in the book of Acts, Rick speaks to us on the key choices we need to make to shape (and choose) our own story; and how our story in powerfully threaded into God’s plans for us and those we live and gather with.
Acts 5; Freed to be bold – Rick encouraged us not to take our freedom for granted, yes there are pressures but we need to live freely and boldly for the name of Jesus. His grace extends to all and is more than enough. As we look to Easter this weekend let’s use the opportunity with Christ’s passion for the Wirral to be bold, invite family, friends and neighbours to one or more of the events. Have we not been…
Jesus tells us again and again to ask, ask, ask and believe as we do. As we dig into John 15 we discover why asking is so important in a faith filled relationship with God.
As we approach the conclusion of our journey through Ephesians we are introduced to The Opposition. Looking at what it means to ‘wrestle right’ with the issues of our life and the trouble in the world, we discover that we can choose to belong to God’s victory plan as we step out to change the world with Him.
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.
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.
How far will God go to save lives? According to these parables Jesus tell us that the shepherd searches until He finds that which is lost. As we look at these stories of searching, we see how God works in a variety of ways to bring home His lost; and He is wonderfully working through us to reach people in amazing ways everyday.
