The lostness of the lost

God says ‘Come’

God is an invitational God – He says ‘come to me, come who are thirsty, weary and burdened, come, follow me’ in so many scriptures. But at times we may have certain reasons for not drawing near to God – such as no desire, or having a feeling of unworthiness, anger or disappointment or too many distractions. Let us not miss out on having a dynamic life, full of the spirit, growing in intimacy with Him, impacting the world around us…

To allow God to work in a certain area of our life without making excuses. Be determined for a breakthrough in…

The Holy Spirit & evangelism

The Holy Spirit was given to us by Jesus for the commission to evangelise and spread the Gospel. Without the Holy Spirit it is all in vain. Neville discusses the role of the Holy Spirit in evangelism and how He works.

What kind of Christianity would you like?

It’s in the nature of man to construct a religion and the construction of a whole heap of rules and build on his own idea of Christianity.  Neville looks at a passage where Jesus challenges some of His followers’ conceptions of salvation and try and pick up on things that will help us get closer to God’s picture of what life in His Kingdom looks like.

Service & sacrifice

Rev Heskett talks about a season of change and what the Lord is saying to His people. Are they willing to be of service and be sent out, as Isaiah was in the scripture verse.
