Can I be sure that I'm saved from sin?

Posted by Sunday Evening Team on January 26, 2012

Looking at Romans 8:1-17 in RML this week, did you get a sense for Paul's care for his readers in placing this passage just here in the letter?  Looking at Romans 7 last week could have left us discouraged about the fact that we still struggle with sin in our bodies and will continue to struggle until we get new bodies.  That struggle could lead us to doubt whether God really has saved us from sin, if we're still at war with it.

What happens to those who oppose Jesus?

Posted by City Team on January 26, 2012

At the St Helen's lunchtime talks this week, we spent most of our time looking at Jesus' words in Luke 20.17-18: "The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him."

Jesus uses Scripture to level a warning at the establishment of his day and at the powers that prevail in our day as well. Each of these allusions to Scr Continue reading…

Imminent, Unexpected: Be ready!

Posted by The 4pm Team on January 20, 2012

On Sunday 15th January at the 4pm we continued our series on the end times as William Taylor preached on Matthew 24:29-44. If you missed the sermon or would like to listen again, then follow the link.

Jesus' words in this passage are a major jolt to the system. They are meant to be taken as a wake-up call. Be ready! The end is imminent. And the timing is unknown. The very next thing on God's agenda is the return of Jesus. And only God t Continue reading…

The world on trial

Posted by City Team on January 19, 2012

This week at the St Helen's lunchtime talks, William began a five-week series in Luke called "On trial: Jesus' verdict on the world."

Sometimes, we need to hear things that we don't like to hear. For instance, when you go to the doctor's office, you want your doctor to tell you the truth, however hard it is to hear. You don't want your doctor to hide the truth from you to spare your feelings!

I wonder if that's something we can remind o Continue reading…

The Tyranny of 'Free Love'
