The Second Coming || Always Remember || 2 Peter 3

May 22, 2022

Are you waiting for something exciting? As followers of Jesus, we all are - his second coming. So far, Christians have been waiting 2,000 years, and there are certainly those who scoff at the idea of Jesus coming back. This isn't new though; as Peter writes in this passage, there were already scoffers scoffing just a few years after Jesus' death and resurrection!

Have your bible ready at 2 Peter chapter 3 as Kirk brings us the conclusion of our Alway Remember series.

Jesus brings radical, life-changing good news. It's important, and core to the Christian faith. This good news is so important that altering it will erode away at the truth, and cause calamity. Tim unpacks a complex passage and reminds us to hold on to the truth of Jesus.

Easter Sunday 2022 || Matthew 28:1-20

Easter Sunday 2022 || Matthew 28:1-20

April 17, 2022

Humans believed that the Sun revolved around the Earth for thousands of years. Seeing things from only our own fixed perspective led us to assume that we were at the centre of everything. Copernicus, when he put forward the theory that the Earth revolved around the Sun - a huge change in focus, and one that wasn't widely accepted for another century.

Easter Sunday presents another paradigm shift, one where God himself came to Earth and served as sacrifice for the entire world. 

This Easter, Tim presents challenges with the facts, the alternatives and the meaning of the resurrection of Jesus.

Good Friday 2022 || Matthew 27

Good Friday 2022 || Matthew 27

April 15, 2022

There's been a huge amount of upheaval in the last two years, through the pandemic, but at the end of the day, the human heart hasn't changed much since Jesus' death and resurrection 2000 years ago. 

We all present ourselves to others as slightly better than what we actually are. We try and smooth out the internal wrinkles that we all have.

God though, knows us intimately. He knows and sees all our wrinkles, our imperfections. But God still seeks us out, knows us, and loves us.

There's no point hiding from God, or pretending to have it all together when we talk to God. So while we might present ourselves in a way that hides some of those stuff ups to others, we can be completely open and honest with God.
