How long do we spend - and these things are not wrong - in our recreation, in shaping our body, in shaping our mind, in shaping our appearance - how long do we spend?

Latest Sermon - "Willing And Able" -- Subscribe to our weekly MP3 Podcast -- Subscribe to our Podcast in iTunesTop

Join our mailing listJust imagine this: Jesus reaching out, saying to this man 'I am willing', and touching this leper. Now we just read over that - I mean, those of us who are Christians, we just read over these stories and we miss half the stuff that's there. When was the last time this man had been touched? Was he estranged from his family? Lepers were actually thrown out of the community and put away into the wilderness, and they weren't to come into contact. Obviously he probably had a family circle, did he have a wife? Did he have kids? I don't know - but when was the last time he knew a wife's embrace? When was the last time his kids, if he had them, jumped up on his knee and kissed him on the cheek?

Here was a man who was completely rejected by all and sundry, and Jesus, the compassionate, gracious, loving Son of God comes and touches him. You know, we preachers, we're guilty of a lot, we complicate things a great deal. We talk about 'leprosy is a picture of sin' - well, it is a picture of sin in the Bible, but it's also a picture of leprosy. Here's a man who is a leper, and on a basic human level Jesus touches him and heals him - let's not miss that. He says, 'I am willing, I'm willing to fix what has cut you off from your community, what has effectively estranged you from coming to worship God. I'm willing to change that and transform it'. So He spoke the word of willingness, 'I am willing'. I believe there are people here - and you may not be a Christian, or you might be a Christian - and you need to hear that the Lord is willing, He is good and He is willing...

Sailing With Paul: Charting The Christian Voyage
by Harry A. Ironside
Sailing With Paul: Charting The Christian Voyage
Take a trip with the Apostle Paul through the fundamentals of the Christian life. Moving through eighteen points of interest, Dr. Ironside leads us on a journey through Paul's teachings on subjects such as Conversion, Forgiveness, Redemption, Justification and Sanctification - concluding with 'The Voyage Ended: The Judgment Seat of Christ'. Each section is brief enough to be easily read, simple enough to be clearly understood, and pointed enough to encourage the spiritual traveller to press on in their journey with Christ.

This book makes an excellent 'handbook' for new believers, but will also refresh those who have been long on the journey, and is perfect for group or individual study.

From the introduction: "Do you sail with Paul? It is not now a question of temporal, but of eternal salvation. The voyage I have in mind is not from one earthly port to another, but that vastly more important voyage from earth to Heaven, from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City. One thing is certain: You are on a voyage, sailing over the sea of time, bound for eternity. What is it to sail with Paul? It is to know Paul's Saviour and to share Paul's blessings".
