Sermons on God's fathering
Rob Coleman from Grace Church Bolton speaks to us today on thinking like sons (and not like slaves). Looking at the story of the prodigal son Rob challenges us about how we are thinking when it comes to how loved, accepted and chosen we are in the Father’s eyes. Are you simply doing your best to get by, hoping that God will be pleased with you; or are you living in the fullness and freedom of your sonship?
Fear drives so much harm in the world, but as Dave unfolds this powerful passage from Galatians, we find that in our true identity as being God’s sons and daughters we are set free from fear to live fully for him. Galatians 3:23-4:7

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.

Mark brings to us the message of God’s amazing grace and how to live in it. Through Ephesians he teaches us that grace embraces every person, meaning the gospel is offensive to the self-righteous. We will never meet anyone who does not have worth and value to God – as Mark unfolds this game changing truth we see how such thinking changes the way we live.
A good question we need to ask ourselves: “Are we more interested in what God can do for us than, rather than having a real relationship with Him? Dave unpacks the powerful story of the lost son and shows us that we can return to a whole hearted relationship with God today.
Dave introduces us to Jesus the child, God’s fathering of us and how we need God’s help in parenting the children in our lives.
