Contained within the walls of God’s sovereign purpose

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I’m finally getting it! After days, weeks even, of having new and exciting snippets of God’s truth seep into my dull brain, I’m finally seeing a clearer picture. I need to begin way back when I was a child growing up. All of my life I’d had the security of my parents’ love and the […]

Last Week Daniel announced that Rob Jacobs has decided not to seek re-election to his position on the Oversight Team (OT) and that we will be nominating Jeni Ward and Ben Morton to both be appointed as OT Members at the November AGM.  Daniel explained that both Jeni and Ben are already leaders in the […]

By the rivers of Babylon

by Mrs Jesus Follower

The Church is weeping. No, not for lost souls but for the loss of something that we hold dear. And, as I thought of this, these familiar words came into my mind: “By the Rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, Yea, we wept, when we remember Zion” And the more I thought about it […]

I’ve always loved reading about Abraham and Sarah. They are the Patriarchs of the faith and they are rightly honoured for their steadfast loyalty to God. Most of you know the story. God promised that a generational line as numerous as the stars would come through them and that from Abraham’s descendants would come the […]

I loved hearing the truth of Romans 3:21-26: The righteousness of God is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that […]

Being Transformed into His Image…

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Mmm… I’m not sure if I agree with that… I thumb through my Bible searching for a passage I read just a few days ago that will prove my point.  Sound familiar or is that just me? The other Sunday Daniel reminded us that our focus… our desire needs to be to know God more. […]

Another Perspective

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I hesitate…I stop and start as I try and put this together. Why? Because it’s different…I’m different. Isn’t this what Julie’s been telling us? Isn’t this what makes unity in Christ unique? Yes, I know all that but… I set my laptop aside and wander into the kitchen.  Pulling down my jar of licorice-allsorts I […]

The ponderings this week comes via Mrs Jesus Follower: The Happy Game’s not Working ☹ I’ve always been a ‘Pollyanna’. You may not know that story but, to put it simply, I think my role in life is to make everything and everyone happy. I’ve spent a lot of my life trying to change things; […]

Recently, Daniel continued our series on Romans by preaching a message from Romans 2. In it Daniel pointed out how carefully we need to read the book as Paul uses many literary devices in his letter. Particularly he draws his audience in regularly by saying things he knows they will agree to so that he can swing […]

To love or to condemn?

by Mrs Jesus Follower

How do I respond to those living a lifestyle that makes me uncomfortable? How do they see me? What attitudes am I conveying to them? Praise God for leaders with the courage to speak up and put these challenges out there for us to face. Praise God for those who continually make us think, read, […]
