Have you ever wondered why the world seems so confused? Does it seem to you that societies have lost their sense of direction? Perhaps it's because we've lost sight of the truly foundational beliefs that underpin our relationship with God and with each other - the Ten Commandments. Beginning in a new series, Pastor John unpacks the first five commandments, and explores what they might mean for us today.
Does it matter how we behave toward other people if we have the right attitude toward them? Isn't it enough to say we love them? Pastor John continues the series on "One Another," with an examination of the way we ought to treat other people, using various passages.
Built on the foundation of "love one another," what should our attitudes toward other people be? Does that even matter, if we're behaving politely? Pastor John continues his series on what the Bible requires of us with regard to other people.
In a new series on the commands related to how we ought to treat "One Another" found in the Bible, Pastor John explores the key beahviour and attitude: Love. What does this love look like? Who is the "one another" we are commanded to love?
Ten out of twelve spies reported back to Moses that the Israelites could not take the Promised Land. They even wanted a new leader to take them back to Egypt. Only Joshua and Caleb reported that, with God on their side, they would secure the whole land. Pastor John shows us how to handle our fears in light of our faith in an all-powerful God who loves us, using Numbers 13-14 as a guide.
The Israelites were only a mere year out of captivity in Egypt and had seen God miraculously provide manna each day. Yet, they complained. They complained so loudly that Moses said he'd prefer death to having to lead them. With a look at Numbers 11, Pastor John discusses our tendency to complain - why, why we shouldn't, and how we can change.
