On Good Friday, we finished our 'Because of the Cross' series with a reminder of the power of the Cross of Jesus to restore our relationship with God and with others. Tim Johnson looks at 2 Corinthians 5:6-21 and our new role as 'ambassadors of reconciliation'.
This week, we reflected on how the Cross of Jesus makes us right and heals our nature, the topic of 'justification'. Andrew Bowles considers the teaching of Paul in the letter to the Romans (5:1-11).
In our second sermon in our series on the Cross, Tim Johnson considers another angle on what Jesus achieved - the topic of 'redemption', being set free from an old way of life in order to serve God. 1 Peter 1:17-21.
In our first sermon in the series 'Because of the Cross', Tim Johnson speaks to us about how on the Cross Jesus takes the 'cup' of God's wrath and judgement and drinks it on our behalf. The Bible passage is Matthew 26:36-46.
