David’s epitaph was that God considered him to be a man after His own heart. This sermon encourages us to be like David and be a worshipper above everything else – the rest of our Christian lives will flow out of that.
In our family service we looked at ‘I am’ sayings of Jesus – the children have been studying these in Sunday school. The question is asked – ‘what do you think about what Jesus said about Himself?’!
In the final talk on the beatitudes we examine the idea of persecution – what it is and what it isn’t. This is something that will face every Christian who truly wants to follow Jesus.
Another talk on the importance and effectiveness of prayer walking.
A 5 step model for praying for healing is introduced. This model is easy to use and treats each person with respect.
This session starts with a thoroughly rounded presentation for the Biblical evidence for the importance of healing in the nature of God, the ministry of Jesus and the ministry of the disciples and then finishes with people praying for one another.
This sermon compares ceremonial purity, moral purity and purity of the heart. We are blessed when our our hearts are purified, and this enables us to see God right now but one day we will see Him face to face. The important thing is that God is looking at our hearts.
This series delves into perhaps Jesus’ most famous sermon – the Sermon on the Mount. It is all about a totally different way of living that only God can work in our hearts. First step is to realise the blessing of being destitute before God.
This is the second in the Just Walk Across the Room series. It shows the importance of developing Friendships, Discovering Stories and Discerning the Next Steps. Very practical.
Rod Barnett, the Festival Director for the Lancashire Festival of Hope, uses the calling of Matthew in Matthew 9:9-13 to show that there is a place for everyone at God’s table and that we no longer need to allow our past to dictate our future. Great message!!
