Sermons from August 2011
We look at 3 reasons God created the world: *For His glory *For apologetics *As a stage for redemption
Proverbs 16:7 We see another element of the long and blessed lives the Lord will give us if we trust and obey Him: peace with our enemies.
Mark 2:18-22 The Old Testament is the Word of God and is still applicable to us as God’s people. We consider how much of the Old Testament applies, which parts of it do and which do not.
We continue to develop a biblical way of considering the environment, focusing on how God’s attributes and his decree tie into issues of the environment.
Acts 8:1-24 Simon the Magician heard the Gospel and believed the facts were true. He showed how earnest he was by receiving baptism, and yet he was still lost. We consider his problem, and seek to understand where he fell short.
Mark 2:13-17 The Bible is clear that you must come to Jesus for forgiveness; but it’s equally clear that if you would come to Him, there’s something He must do first.
1 Peter 3:13 In this message, we consider that God promises His people Divine protection. This is one more blessing that comes from walking with the Lord.
Mark 2:1-12 There can be no salvation without forgiveness, which is why trust in Jesus is essential – forgiveness is only found in Him.
We consider whether we can expect the Bible to help us answer questions about the environment and other modern issues, and begin to look at some biblical principles that are applicable.
Genesis 45:1-15 We look at the way Joseph forgave his brothers for selling him into Egypt and see how this applies to us.
Psalm 48 We look at an antidote to a defensive and fearful attitude in the church, as we see the strength, beauty and glory of the Church, which is her God.
