Our Life in Christ

In this message based on Colossians 3: 1-17 we consider what it means to be a person living ‘raised with Christ’.

Sinners in the hands of a Loving God

In reflecting on two of Jesus’ ‘lost and found’ stories (Luke 15: 1-10) we consider the heart of God and the lengths to which he goes to rescue just one person. Indeed we are sinners in the hands of a loving God.

The message that comes from our readings from 1 Kings 19: 1-18 and Luke 8: 26-39 is, ‘it doesn’t have to be that way’. In both readings we read of two people who are held captive, one to fear and anxiety, the other by some form of demonic activity. In 1 Kings we see the great prophet Elijah fall in a heap almost immediately after pulling off a great victory against the false prophets of Baal. He discovers however that…
