Working With God

Preached on September 29, 2019

Jesus And Work

Preached on September 22, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:22-4:1

Work has always been a big part of life for people to provide for themselves and their families, but is there any value beyond the grave? Jesus may have saved our soul, but is there any value in the work we do now that we’ve been saved? The Apostle Paul answers this question as he shows us how Jesus redeems work.


Slaves – Masters (Work Theology)

Preached on September 22, 2019
Speaker:

Jesus Centred Parenthood

Preached on September 15, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:20-21

After explaining how Jesus reigns in marriage, the Apostle Paul now gives the church a formula for how Fathers are to relate to their kids, and kids to their parents. A well ordered society begins at home, and so does a well-ordered life in Christ.


Parent-Children

Preached on September 15, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:20-21

In this talk we explore what it looks like to have Jesus as Lord as a child, teen and parent. We may not all be parents but we all need to reflect on how our parents impacted us.


Husbands And Wives

Preached on September 8, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:18-19

Colossians offers only two sentences on marriage but they are two crucial sentences - one for the husband, one for the wife. Even though broken marriages are part of living in a broken world, these two verses affirm God’s good gift of marriage.


Jesus Rules Marriage

Preached on September 8, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 3:18–19

After explaining how Jesus reigns supreme in the universe and fills our lives, the Apostle Paul moves to show us how Jesus also reigns in marriage. From this passage of scripture we look at God’s intention for marriage, what went wrong, and how Jesus redeems it by revealing the mystery that is the key to understanding what marriage is.

Bible Text: Colossians 3:1–17

After spending the first half of this letter reminding the church who they are as Jesus’ people, our Apostle Paul now tells us what it looks like to be a Christian.

The Worst Trade Deal In The History Of Trade Deals

Preached on August 25, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 2:16-23

There’s lots of things in life that can tempt us to think we can be closer to God if only we could do this or experience that - this part of the Bible pours cold water on that and tells us that in Jesus we’re as close to God as we ever need to be.


Resist retreating from Reality to Shadows

Preached on August 25, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 2:16-23

Without a clear understanding of who Christ is and what he has done we will retreat from the reality of Christ back into the shadows of Old Testament law, harsh treatment of the body and a false spirituality.


Don’t Move, Stay Right Where You Are!

Preached on August 18, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 2:4-15

The theme of Colossians and this passage is  "Don’t move, stay right where you are in Christ. In the face of false teaching that wants to kidnap Christians the answers are giving both in the negative and the positive. Ultimately Christ is enough and each Christian is complete.


Don’t move, stay right where you are!

Preached on August 18, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 2:6-15

Paul urges the Colossian church to keep their eyes fixed on Christ. The temptation and danger for any believer is to begin to think that Christ is not enough. The way that we grow in our faith and finish the race is by staying firmly rooted in him.


Message, Messenger and Maturity

Preached on August 11, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 1:24-2:3

What is it we’re doing in the Christian life? What’s the heart of all we do as a Church? Paul says, we’re speaking the word about Jesus to all people to prepare them to meet Jesus on that last day.


Preparing God’s People

Preached on August 11, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 1:24–2:4

One thing’s for sure from reading the Bible – God cares about his people. He died to save them, lives in them to sustain them, and will come back to get them. The question we ask in this sermon is, ‘What role do we play in preparing God’s people to stand before him?’ The Apostle Paul is our model here as he leads us in service to God’s people.


Supremacy of Christ

Speaker:
Bible Text: Colossians 1:15-23

The Supremacy of Christ

Preached on August 4, 2019
Speaker:
