Sermons on “Psalms”
Jon continues our exploration of disciplines in the Bible to help us receive and experience more joy. Psalm 19.8 and Psalm 119.14 & 162 show that we can find joy in God’s Word – all we have to do is READ – with our hearts, not just our heads & with humility.View Sermon
Our hope is God’s love for us. What or whom you are hoping in determines your ability to maintain hope. How do we remain hopeful in a hopelessly broken world?
Throughout the pages of Scripture, we are told to put our hope in God – And Philip unpacks Romans 8.18-25, 38-39, Romans 12.12 and Psalm 33.22 to help us.
In this final Dangerous Prayer, Jon looks at Psalm 139.23-24. This is actually four prayers – 1. Search my heart. 2. Reveal my fears. 3. Uncover my sins. 4. Lead me. And we explore how God wants to answer this prayer to show us the rubbish in our lives that He wants to give us freedom from.View Sermon
Jon explores Abram’s example of tithing as the way to respond to God’s blessings in Genesis 14.17-20 – one of the ways God might answer the dangerous prayer in Psalm 116.12 ‘What can I give?’. We are to Give Thankfully, Give Voluntarily and Give Systematically.View Sermon
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)View Sermon
How can we believe in a good God who has a plan for our lives when there is so much suffering in the world? Jane looks at Psalm 46.1 and 1 Peter 1.6-7 to find some answers.View Sermon
