Latest Sermon - "Beats With The Rhythm Of Grace" -- --
The fundamental issue in understanding the message of God in the Bible is what the purpose of law is, what part does law play. It's very important, I mean the first five books of the Bible are about law, the Ten Commandments are a summary of the law of God. It is God's law, it is communicated from His mouth, His mind, and His heart - but what is the purpose of it? The answer again is simple: the law is for nothing other than to show us our sin. Now, let me not complicate things this week - and I can complicate things, not because I'm clever, clever people make things plain - let me try and make things plain. Read the book of Romans, read the book of Galatians, and you will discover God's purpose in the giving of His laws. It's not a standard to live by, it's not a code of merit that we have to keep, by which we earn God's favour. In fact, here's what both Romans and Galatians will teach you - a crash course on Romans and Galatians is this: the law of God makes us lawbreakers. It tells us what sin is, and because it becomes the law, we are now lawbreakers through breaking the law. Paul tells us it actually enflames sin within us, it stirs it up. It's like telling a child: 'Don't steal that cookie!' - and what happens? You tell it not to do a thing, and something within them is stirred up to want to do it. That's what the law of God does for us as sinners... [Listen or read more...]
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.
