Kingdom Come #2
2020-10-25 Kingdom Lost, Hope Given Genesis 3 Genesis 3 isn't just a record of Adam and Eve's sin. It is also a record of how we lost the Kingdom of God. How it is that we ended up in a world of hurt and distant from our Marker. But despite all the loss there is also hope. Even in the midst of the curse there is hope that what is lost might also be restored!
Endure - The story of John Paton
2020-10-11 James 5:10-11 Preacher: Mike Coutts In James 5:10-11 we are called to consider and admire the faith of Job. A faith that endured in the hard time. Today we hear a bit of the story of John Paton, who gives us a modern example of a faith that endured. John's story encourages us about the source of his faith, persevering through hardships, and seeing fruit in the end.
2020-9-6 Mike Coutts Are health, wealth and prosperity signs of God's blessing? We will all have to answer this question for our friends and for ourselves. Whether we are rich or poor. Whether we are healthy or sick. What ever our situation, howwe answer this question will show our understanding of God and faith in God. This was a challenge that Job's friends failed. Job's story and their story is recorded that we night not.
2020-8-30 Job 4-14 Job and his friends are trying to understand why Job is suffering like he is. It is the obvious question that suffering raises for us all. Unfortunately all of them are working from wrong assumptions. Assumptions we are tempted to make ourselves. Today we see that: 1) Truth misapplied is sin, and 2) Faith holds on
2020-8-23 Job 3:1-26 In chapter 3 of the book of Job, Job speaks and gives vent to his feelings. It is raw. It is dark, but Job is not alone and Job still asks a question of God. Like Job, we have been and will be in pits in our lives and as much as we wouldn't chose to be there it is OK. We are in good company. Let us learn from Job and his friends what we can do in the pit. Preacher: Rev Mike Coutts
