What Would Jesus Undo? – Fake Faith

Jesus condemns hypocrisy and ‘fake faith’ in the strongest terms. It’s a pretty universal temptation to try to seem better than we are. Jane looks at the causes of hypocrisy, and examines how, through worship, God’s presence and accountability, we are more likely to be able to live authentic lives.

What Would Jesus Undo? – Hollow Worship

In Matthew 15.1-7, Jesus speaks against Hollow Worship. If our hearts aren’t right before God and if our worship is rule-based rather than relationship-driven, our worship is a farce. Worship isn’t about the style of music, but the condition of our hearts. How do we express worship to God? Reverence (Ps 95.6), adoration (Ps 63.4), celebration (Ps 149.3) and sacrifice (Heb 13.15)

The Story Continues: Faithful in Service

Jon looks at three examples from Scripture (1 Sam 17.17-18, Lk 19.28-35, Jn 13.4-5), recognising our identity as servants of the Most High God, and the invitation to join with God’s story by serving. When we serve others we are serving Jesus (Mat 25.40) and in the Kingdom of God the little things are big things.

Lord’s Prayer – Your Kingdom Come

Jon explores the second part of the prayer that Jesus taught us in Matthew 6.9-13, demonstrating that we pray for Heaven to invade Earth, starting with our own hearts. This is a prayer for God’s power (1 Cor 4.10) but also requires that we make space for God to move.

Cathy introduces our new mini-series looking at the prayer Jesus taught us in Matthew 6.9-13, starting with ‘Our Father’ and the ways in which our relationship with God can inspire our prayers.

I want to hope but…God’s no fun

Is God a killjoy? Isn’t following God just about obeying rules? Jon explores the differences between religion (Matthew 23.35-36) and Jesus (Romans 3.20-22) and the freedom that comes from understanding that we can’t earn God’s acceptance.
