1 Thessalonians 1:1-10 What is Real Christianity? From this passage, the Bible says it is based on the gospel, and is a response to what God has done for us first, through Jesus; that knowing the gospel leads to perseverance through persecution; and that Real Christianity is public because it’s such good news we can’t keep it to ourselves!
Luke 8:40-56 We hate feeling helpless – out the loop at work, unable to change situations at home. Individually, and as a society, we’re tempted to ignore the big questions we feel helpless before – like death and what lies beyond. Listen in as Jesus meets disease and death and proves he’s the one we can cry to for help.
Luke 9:37-50 Everyone’s trying to make a success of their lives, whether through their career, their relationships, their family, their reputation. William Carey said: ‘It’s not failure I fear, but succeeding at things that don’t really matter’. Listen in as Jesus talks about true success and why it can often feel like failure.
Luke 8v22-39 We love to feel in control. From the technology we buy, to the careers and relationships we pursue, control matters to us. We get very uncomfortable when we run into situations we can’t control. Listen in as we think through the Bible’s claims about Jesus’ control and what that might mean for us.
Luke 9:21-36 We’ll all know people who have made big sacrifices for things like career, family and pastimes. In fact, every choice we make to spend an hour on x, sacrifices an hour on y. The question is – did we sacrifice for the right thing? Listen in to Jesus’ claim he is the one most worth sacrificing for.
John 10:11 Many people today want nothing to do with God because of the corruption of church leaders for whom religion is just a cloak for lust and greed. But God is nothing like such bad shepherds. In Jesus God came as the good shepherd to lay down his life for the sheep.
Luke 9:1-20 Sometimes what we think will fill us, leaves us empty – work, relationships, family, hedonism, religiosity. What should we do when we’re not sure we’ve got the answers ourselves, let alone the answers to give others? Listen in as Jesus shows us how he can fill us and others.
John 8:12Sometimes people talk about ‘feeling like a mushroom’ in the workplace. Like a mushroom, you’re kept in the dark and once in a while you have some manure thrown over you! It can feel like that in life. But Jesus is the light of the world. If we follow him we will not walk in darkness.
Luke 8:40-56 We hate feeling helpless. Individually, and as a society, we’d rather just ignore the big questions about death and what lies beyond. Listen in as Jesus meets disease and death and proves he’s the one we can cry to for help.
John 6:35 One of our most basic feelings as humans is hunger. From the moment we are born we feel hunger and cry out for food. But there is also a spiritual hunger of which we become aware as we get older. An inner emptiness. What is the solution? Jesus says that he is the bread of life.
