God Has Provided The Lamb

Exodus 12:1-13 — In this passage we have God’s instructions for Israel’s protection from the tenth and final plague. These instructions centred around a lamb, its death and its blood. God was instituting the Passover and in so doing He gave what is perhaps the clearest and most significant picture of the work of Jesus…

What It Means To Be A Christian

Luke 9:23-24 — “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” The twelve disciples were very keen on following Jesus in what they believed to be His imminent Messianic triumph, but their expectations were narrow and naive. Before exaltation and glory there was to be…

Marriage God’s Way

Nehemiah 10:1-30 — It is the response after one says “Amen” that truly matters, for that proves the authenticity of what was prayed. A glorious prayer had just been prayed. Confession was made for the sins of the people but it didn’t just stop with prayer, there was practical change. Spiritual reformation began with the people…

A Failure Of Leadership

I Timothy 1 — In this final introductory study we look more closely at the problems Timothy was dealing with at the church in Ephesus.

Timid Timothy?

Various Texts — In this study we continue our introduction to the Book of I Timothy. We follow Timothy’s progress with the Apostle Paul on his missionary journeys. We see some of the assignments that Timothy was given and we ask whether he really was “timid” as he is often said to have been. We…

Meet Timothy – And Learn About Grace

Acts 16:1-3 — It was during Paul’s second missionary journey that we are first introduced to a young man who would become a key part of his ministry team. His name was Timothy and in these verses we learn about his parents, his upbringing, his faith and his graciousness. For the sake of the Gospel,…

You Can’t Choose Your Parents

Judges 11:1-11 — In this sermon we begin studying the exploits of the judge Jephthah. The trajectory of his life was, to a large degree, set by the actions of others. His father had an affair with a pagan harlot and Jephthah was born. Because of his parentage, his brothers rejected him and kicked him…
