Random sermon quote: "I think nothing, perhaps, is more damaging to the work of God today than compromise among Christians. If Christians took God's word seriously there would never be an accusation like the one we often hear: 'Oh, Christians, I can't have them! They're a bunch of hypocrites!'" - The Enemy And The Overcomer

Latest Sermon - "Abiding In Abba's Love" -- --
For some Christians, it's all about salvation, everything revolves around being saved and knowing you're going to heaven, and having the assurance of sins forgiven. Now that's not wrong, that's a great blessing and benefit of the Gospel of course. Then there are other Christians, and there is a great emphasis on spiritual gifts and spiritual experiences - and, again, that is not essentially wrong. Scripture teaches us to desire earnestly the best gifts of the Spirit and, as we saw the other night, the Bible is full of spiritual experiences. Whilst none of us live a daily routine of spiritual phenomena, this Christian life is a journey of experiencing God in a personal way - and that is all there. But there is a danger that we look to get things from God, whether it's getting out of hell and going to heaven, whether it's getting the slate clean and all our sins purged, whether it's spiritual giftedness and all sorts of supernatural abilities - we can do all of that, desire all of that at the expense of actually valuing God for who He is, and pursuing spiritual intimacy with Him.
You see, if you only relate to God in a superficial way, you will either end up like the young son in the far country seeking other satisfactions, or you will become a religious formalist that is completely detached from the reality of who God is and what He wants to do. I have to say that I believe that's one of the reasons why there is spiritual famine in the church in general here in the Western world - because we pursue God for what we can get out of Him, rather than pursuing Him for who He is, valuing intimacy with Him as our Heavenly Father...

Welcome Home: The Story Of The Prodigal Son
by Brownlow North
Brownlow North had many distinguished relatives, including a Prime Minister and a Bishop. Yet he had no interest in a career either in the church or in politics. Instead 'Gentleman Jack', as he was known at Eton, preferred to spend most of his time hunting, shooting and fishing in the highlands of Scotland.
However, in 1854 in a house near Dallas, Morayshire in Scotland, he fell ill and was convinced he was going to die. Although he recovered completely from this illness it changed his lifestyle totally - because he had decided to put God first in his life. He went on to become an evangelist, and preached widely in Britain and Ireland. North was a significant figure in the 1859 revival in Ireland, on one occasion preaching to 12,000 people.
'Welcome Home' is the story of the prodigal son - as applied to you and me. Brownlow North draws on his own experience to show how relevant the parable is to men and women of today.
From the introduction: "There are some passages in the Word of God, with which different men, according to their different temperaments and characteristics, think they have little to do; that however suitable they may be to others, they in no way apply to them; and that consequently they can teach them little. One such passage, I think, is the parable of the Prodigal Son. When this parable is given out for the text of a sermon, or is the title of a book laying on the table, many think that the subject can concern them but little; that whatever else they may be, they are not Prodigal Sons...". This little evangelistic work will be a blessing to any believer, and a challenge and encouragement to those who have not yet accepted Christ.
