Building a People: Look to God for your needs

There may be times in the Christian life that we feel we may tension between our need to fully rely on God, and our need to obey his word. How do we follow his will for our life while also depending upon him and trusting that he will provide for us? This was something that the people of God in Nehemiah’s day had to learn, and something each one of us needs to also.

Good News (9) – Repentance & rejection

Mark 6:1-30 The gospel is the best news in the world that through Jesus we can be forgiven and know God and have eternal life.

But without repentance, there is no salvation.

Good News (8) – Sickness & death

Mark 5:21-43 In the past we may all have had deep-down fears of sickness and death, but there’s nothing like a global pandemic to bring these fears to the surface. Faith in a Jesus who rules over sickness and death is the answer to our fears – but that requires bringing our faith and our fears together, and not keeping them in separate compartments. This passage will help us do just that.

2020 vision

Psalm 103 In one survey readers were asked to describe 2020 in one word – the top three were ‘exhausting’, ‘chaotic’, ‘lost’. For this final service of the year, the only kind of psalm which might feel appropriate is a lament. So how could this psalm of praise possibly be fitting instead?
