This week Sarah explores God’s heart for His Church and that He is not after a few anointed individuals, He is after an anointed Church. Looking through the prism of the body, we see how each and every person has a vital part to play. There is a slight twist at the end as we are invited into a specific posture to heed the work the Spirit is doing amongst us.
Sarah commences our new series exploring the Holy Spirit and sets the scene regarding the vitality behind the Holy Spirit's heart and role to us as a Church.
Whilst exploring the various extremes that can come into play we are reminded of a thirst we have for MORE and the God behind the thirst who longs to give us more.
Jacob's dream of a thin place where Heaven and Earth again unite is answered and magnificently expanded in the resurrection of Jesus.
As we reflect on the final week of Christ’s life, Sarah focuses on the Submission of our King, the extraordinary act it was and the way in which it opens up a whole new way of life for each of us as we seek to be restored and to follow Him.
AM service Pastor, Ryan, unpacks how the direction you fix your eyes will define the course of your life. Through examining the Apostle Paul’s words, we see a clear call to set a direction which leads us towards unity with the power and presence of God.
Where the West separates knowledge and beliefs, Jesus invites us to live the life of the Kingdom, where the two, ‘mind and heart are inextricably linked’. The spiritual knowledge of God’s Kingdom is discovered when you commit to it, seek it and dwell in it.
As we fast and pray during Lent, the hunger of our body and spirit is for what is lost. We ache for Eden where God’s righteousness reigned. In Luke’s account of Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness, Jesus demonstrates how to walk in the opposite spirit when we are met with trials and temptations, even when we are at our most vulnerable. Mark encourages us to walk in the opposite spirit because it is not just about us as individuals but it is about interceding on behalf of our broken world.
