Easter, For Me

March 30th 2015 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

When it comes to Easter, we are truly spoiled. Even though the Bible is a huge collection of documents, most of biblical history is covered in sweeping narratives, or glimpses into specific occasions. But once we come to Easter, we have four accounts that give great detail about that week leading up to the crucifixion | Read More…

How do you Pray for Fellow Believers?

March 6th 2015 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

This post was originally written by Peter for Biblical Preaching. We hope you visit it and enjoy. —————– There is a strange phenomena in the church when it comes to praying for people.  Obviously this is a generalisation, but I have observed it enough to suggest that it may be a pattern. When people become | Read More…

Space to Dream

January 18th 2015 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

We live in a world that seems to go faster every year. The phone in my pocket is faster than any computer I’d ever met just a few years ago. Emails, facebook updates, tweets, and so on, just keep coming faster and faster. I don’t want to sound critical about technology and the information age | Read More…

Consumer Sheep Consumer Shepherd

December 9th 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

I have seen a lot written about consumerism in the church, but it always seems to focus on the sheep. Churches feel increasingly pressured to vie for the loyalty of attenders by means of tailored worship experiences, styles of preaching, and so on. Meanwhile, as churches give the best fare they can generate, the majority | Read More…

Why would God Wipe Tears?

November 10th 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

It is a famous biblical phrase, but have we stopped to consider what it is saying?   “The Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces…” Isaiah writes this in what you might call the “song of the banquet hall.” Let’s consider the context before we probe the point I want to underline in this | Read More…

The Greatest Peril for Bible Churches?

October 8th 2014 by Posted in Blog 4 Comments

Mark’s all-action Gospel is interrupted twice by blocks of teaching from Jesus.  The first, in chapter 4, feels so familiar.  A man went out to sow.  (Yes, we know that one.)  One type of seed, four types of soil, most unfruitful, only good soil really gives life, etc.  It is a familiar passage.  It is | Read More…

Never Lose This

September 24th 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

Yesterday I was in conversation with a Polish church leader who vulnerably admitted something the rest of the group could relate to easily. “In the first years of my ministry I was extremely conscious of my dependence on God and aware of the need for God to work despite my weaknesses. However, as the years | Read More…

Everybody Hides

August 13th 2014 by Posted in Blog 0 Comments

Psalm 46 is always a highly valued text in times of war.  Which is probably why, for a while now, we haven’t heard too much about it.  Maybe we should? In the past the news of an impending threat would come in the form of a breathless messenger coming from the next town.  Today we | Read More…
