Bible Talks by Grant Borg
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 9:19–23
We all feel a sense of slavery in life that we wish we could be free from. Work, insecurities, people’s opinions, social pressure, old age, etc. etc., and Jesus came to set us free. Free from what used to control us, and free to bless as we’ve been blessed.
Bible Text: Matthew 12:1-14
How are you? I’m busy! How often do we hear this? Busy working, running around, partying, chasing dreams… to what end? Will we ever get to rest? This is what we look at this Sunday as we walk through the grain fields following our Lord Jesus.
Bible Text: Psalm 67
We finish our series in the Psalms this week looking at God’s heart for the nations to know him. When people are happy they sing and they praise whatever has caused their joy, and here we explore God’s intention to bless his people, and those who don’t yet know him.
Bible Text: Psalm 73
We’ve all seen injustice in the world and wondered where God is in all the mess. This is what the author of Psalm 73 is wrestling with in his own life, trying to understand how God can be good while the godless seem to go on unhindered – even promoted! Clarity is needed to see the world properly, and thank God he gives it to us when we are willing to see things from his perspective.
Bible Text: Psalm 51
The sad truth about leaders is that they sometimes fall – and fall hard. This is David’s story. In this Psalm we see why we can speak of David as a child of God, a brother in Christ, and a man who made it to the Kingdom of God. His life wasn’t perfect, but it’s what he did with his sin that made all the difference.
