The opening of Ephesians reminds us our lives must be centred on Christ. Paul’s making it clear that Jesus isn’t a twist in the story or the latest gimmick. Jesus is the Centre of what God is and will always be about. In the same letter, we are told that we are the completeness of Christ: as essential parts of the body we make up the full complement of the church of Jesus.
We are far more blessed than the material possessions that we accumulate through life. Colin discovered, after recently acquiring an electric bike, that he had a mouse problem in an outbuilding. This led him to realise just how he had become lazy, and forgetful of his real treasure. Refocusing on our real blessings, Colin reminds us that where our treasure is, our heart will be also.
Taking spiritual challenges is a big part of our relationship with God. We have got to challenge ourselves otherwise we won’t grow. Reflecting upon his own recent mountain challenge, David shows us some examples of characters from the Bible who had their own mountain challenges and the impact this had on their faith.
At the time of Zechariah the temple in Jerusalem was ransacked and the nation of Israel were dragged from their land. Ashamed, the ordinary people seek to rebuild their extraordinary temple. We ourselves are ordinary, but we have been given a real religion, a faith that makes us extraordinary. Zechariah shows the ordinary people that with prayer an extraordinary restoration can take place. Our God is extraordinary, and all he wishes is for us to turn our ordinary faces to Him.
Judgement can be about how we feel about something. God's focus is not on our sin but on us and how he feels about us, and so there is a link between mercy and judgement in us and in God. Mike explores these ideas based on scriptures from Jeremiah 31 and Luke 6
David explores some reasons why Jesus died and why it had to happen that way.
