Healing, restoration, strength, restitution and so much more. Is that your experience of what happens in your life whenever you take communion? Religion has hijacked this amazing tool given to us for our benefit in 2 ways - firstly by reducing it to a simple tradition and secondly by shifting the focus of attention onto us. Are we worthy enough? Have examined ourselves correctly? Discover what this all means and the impact that taking communion is meant to have. You will find new levels of grace and love as you do.
The biggest battle of them all is not around you. It's in you. We think that the outward challenges are the most important but there is a key to seeing life & blessing flow in you. You are not condemned. The grace of Jesus tells us that we are no longer guilty and deserving of punishment. Condemnation means the feeling that we should be punished and many Christians still live with that in our hearts. In today's sermon Andrew looks at David and how the battle he fought was not about a physical giant but the condemnation and judgement that God was dealing with. Inspiring and encouraging stuff. You are no longer condemned.
Pastor Jaap is the Pastor of Jong En Vrij Church in Hellevoetsluis in The Netherlands. This weekend with a team from the Jong en Vrij they were ministering in Belfast. A fantastic teacher of grace Pastor Jaap talks about why the church should not just be preaching grace but what it means to build in grace - and why that matters to you. Whatever your experience Jaap explains why you will see the blessing of God when you are planted in a community of grace.
5 great words to live by - The Battle is the Lord's. Most of the time we forget what God has already put in our hands. Before Moses faces a huge challenge in his life the Lord reminds him what he has already been given. It is the same for us and this is not just for the challenges we face. It also applies to the dreams that we have and how they will come about. Come the time Moses is told to stand and see the deliverance of the Lord using what is in his hand. You can do the same thing. Today. You do not need to wait.
