TalkBack – Social Justice and the Gospel

Posted by on 25th Jun, 2012 in Sermons | Tagged in: | 0 comments

As the church, our priority is to tell the gospel. The kingdom of God is those who are under the rule of king Jesus and not those who have better living or working conditions. However, the gospel changes us to be people who passionately believe and work for social justice – treating people fairly.

Posted by on 17th Jun, 2012 in Sermons | Tagged in: | 0 comments

In Thyatira it seemed that the false teaching had really taken root and Jesus uses strong words to condemn the false teachers and those who follow them and to encourage those in the church who were making progress in love, service and witness to keep going.

Philippians 1:21 – to die is gain

Posted by on 17th Jun, 2012 in Sermons | Tagged in: | 0 comments

In the second half of our verse of the year Paul turns conventional wisdom upside down and says that dying is not a loss or a dead end but gain. It is better because it is where we belong in the presence of Christ awaiting the final resurrection. This should affect our view of life and death and the way we live sacrificially and give generously because we live for Christ and look forward to being with him.

Against that background, the Christians are called to remain faithful as they had been in the past because Jesus is the ultimate judge and king.

Christ’s Church… remembering the Cross

Posted by on 10th Jun, 2012 in Sermons | Tagged in: | 0 comments

The church of Christ should be characterised by joyful but serious celebration of the Cross of Christ. A great way Christ has given us to help us remember this is the Lord’s Supper – the communion time when we remember the body of Jesus broken and the blood poured out for us. As we take the bread and wine we remember, proclaim and anticipate. To listen to Graham Nicholls preaching from Acts 2:42 at Christ Church on Sunday morning 10th June 2012 use the links below.
