There are three ways that we can appeal to people to ‘Come back to God’. The first is evidence. The second is experience. The third is example. Yet how can we can be consistent as an example when our lives experience so much inconsistency? Is it possible to model something in the turmoil and mess that shows people that God is at work in us and that we are true servants of Jesus Christ with a message worth hearing. Text: 2 Corinthians 5:16-6:13
How do you explain your belief to someone that Jesus Christ was the son of God, that he died for the sin of the world and was resurrected three days later? The easy answer is to say “because the Bible says so”. And although that’s true it probably won’t make much headway with a generation increasingly less likely to see the Bible as the authoritative Word of God. Dan explores how we can combine Scripture along with solid historical facts and evidence outside of the Bible to provide a compelling argument for Christ’s existence, his crucifixion and his resurrection.
God, in His grace, has united us with Christ. We have been grafted into Jesus and have a new life, changing us into His likeness. But the truth is we need to remain in Him and in His love. As we hold to his teaching, obeying His command to love others, we will surely bear fruit to the glory of Father God.Text: John 15
This is a word in season for the church. It is about how we handle season of change, particularly involving loss and saying goodbye. Where do we find our security? Where do we find our stability? What is the scaffolding around which we must build our Christian faith? Text: John 15:1-17
Jesus promised the Rivers of Living Waters of the Holy Spirit to all who are thirsty. The Holy Spirit is just like Jesus – full of grace and truth. The Spirit of Grace has come to live in us – gentleness, kindness, patience are His fruits and the Spirit of Truth will lead us into all Truth. Text: John 7
Every now and then the leadership of The Hill has a message for the church family at The Hill. We call these talks Bones. This is a two part talk. The first part was on 29 April 2018. It is a call to the church to be increasingly attractive to the watching world around us. We want to be like a tasty fruit that people want more. Text: Titus 2:1-14.
