Bible Text: John 1:1-3
Bible Text: Luke 17:20-37
In this passage, Jesus speaks powerfully about the coming of the Kingdom of God. He speaks to people on the outside and tells them how to enter it, before turning to his disciples – with frightening illustrations from the past – to warn them about the danger they face while they wait for it to come in its fullness at his Second Coming.
Bible Text: Isaiah 25:1
The Prophet Isaiah knew God and enjoyed him! We see the followers of Jesus enjoy him too, the question we’re asking here is, ‘are you enjoying God?’ As we look at the way Isaiah speaks to God in this one verse, we find every good reason for any one of us to enjoy God both now and forever
Bible Text: Matthew 10:24-36
Jesus preached a message of peace and reconciliation, and yet he divided the world. In fact, here Jesus says that he even came to divide members from within the same house! As Jesus warns his people about the cost of following him, he gives them an insight into life that will put it all into perspective
Bible Text: Proverbs 4:23
Our hearts are the core of our beings and the fountains of our desires, so it’s no surprise that what happens in the heart sets the direction for our whole lives. In this sermon, we take a close look at our hearts as we prepare for another year, and listen to the advice of God to guard our hearts to guard our lives.
