MAKING TIME FOR LENT & EASTER EXPECTATION AND HOPE
A short Lent series of looking at the thems of Preparation, Confession and Restoration.
Two Easter messages taking us on a journey from The Expectations of the Crowd to The Hope of the Cross
When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey the people already had their own expectations of what kind of messiah they wanted. By the end of the following Friday, those expectations, and all of the hopes tied up with them appeared to be in tatters as Jesus’ broken body was removed from the cross,[…]
In our final Lenten message we consider Restoration. During his earthly ministry, Jesus spoke and taught of God’s great plan for restoring the relationship between humanity and himself and the establishment of His kingdom on earth. Our Lenten journey should be one that encourages us to: Believe in Restoration, Hope for Restoration, Seek Restoration –[…]
In the second of our Lenten series, we focus on the issue of confession. During his earthly ministry, Jesus forgave sinners and also rehabilitated them in society as well as the Kingdom. What part does confession play in our own Lenten reflections and meditations? The Prayer of Faith 13 Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray.[…]
The first of our short Lenten series examines Preparation Lent – traditionally a time when we think about Fasting, Prayer and Giving as we head towards Easter. How do we make sure that Lent properly prepares us for Easter? Giving to the Needy 6 “Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others[…]
Bringing this series to a close, we consider Jesus’ instruction to his followers that they must ‘… take up their cross…’. What significance does this teaching have for us as we move through Lent towards Easter? 34 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple[…]
As we continue with our investigation into some of Jesus’ most challenging commands, we consider how love has the power to transform lives. 27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Luke 6:27-28 What does[…]
As we continue to examine some of Jesus’ difficult sayings we take a look at this challenging statement from Luke’s gospel. 26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. LUKE 14:26 Does Jesus really want me[…]
Continuing our series looking at some of the most difficult and challenging statements and teachings of Jesus we consider Jesus’ response to this young man who came to him eagerly searching for eternal life. We are simply told that, after he had heard Jesus’ reply, he ‘went away sad’ and we know nothing more about him.[…]
In the third of our series looking at some of the most difficult and challenging statements and teachings of Jesus we look at a passage from Luke’s Gospel, chapter 12. In this text Jesus spells out some of the reasons why worry about our material needs is wrong. Then, after explaining why worry is wrong, he offers[…]
In the second of our series looking at some of the most difficult and challenging statements and teachings of Jesus we look at an earlier section of the Sermon On The Mount. 38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, do not resist[…]
