Romans 5:1-11 Uncertainties abound all around us; employment, instability, relationships, the environment, world peace, finances, medical worries. The need for assurance is acutely relevant for all of us. Come and hear why our position before God is rock solid and certain – not much can give us more reason to rejoice this autumn.
Psalm 139 Every day we face uncertainty. Every day we need hope. Yet so often we look for certainty in all the wrong places, so often we place our hopes on uncertain foundations. Listen in and find out more.
Job 1:1-12 Are you a fair-weather believer or a genuine one? One test will be, as for Job, how you respond when the storm clouds gather and the darkness closes in.
Revelation 20:11-21:4 Just a few months ago we were in the house of feasting, celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Today we find ourselves in the house of mourning, preparing for a state funeral. As well as a time to give thanks, it is a time to reflect on our own mortality and on what lies beyond.
2 Timothy 4:9-22 The cost of living has been on everyone’s minds in recent months. This passage is about the cost of living as a disciple of Christ, and how to respond to it. The apostle Paul was imprisoned, opposed, deserted – but he responded in a godly way. We are to learn from his example.
2 Timothy 4:1-8 On 9/11 in 2001, within 10 minutes of the first plane hitting the tower, over 1000 phone calls were made from people in the buildings or on the other planes. And they all said the same three words – ‘I love you’. What would your last words be to your loved ones? Here we have the apostle Paul’s final message, which he sums up in another three words: preach the Word.
True repentance means we have peace with God and with one another, and we will be eternally gathered with one another to the throne of God.
King Josiah wept, grieving his sin, he tore his clothes. What does it mean for us to truly be sorry for our sin? And why is it essential for true repentance? We find out by going to Jesus: the sorrowful king.
King Josiah humbled himself before the Lord. But what does that look like? And how are we to do it? His example points us to Jesus, the ultimate humble King.
King Josiah has a tender heart, meaning that he hears and obeys God’s word. If we are to truly repent we need this heart also, yet we so often fail! The good news is that Jesus is a tender hearted king!
