Luke 9:18-27 | EV Church | 3/03/2013 | Craig Dobbie
Craig Dobbie preaching on Luke 9:18-27. Who is this man Jesus and what will it mean to follow him? The disciples were only half right a out who Jesus is. The Jews were expecting several great leaders - prophet, priest, servant king and a conquering messiah. They didn't expect these to be fulfilled in one man - Jesus. What will it mean to follow him? To die to the old selfish life, through daily repentance and to live to bring honour to God. To avoid the temptation of being ashamed of Jesus. Pray that you will remember that Jesus is both the suffering saviour and judge.
Judges 19:1-2125 | EV Church | 7/07/2013 | Andrew Hayes
Andrew Hayes unpacks the last 3 chapters of Judges. In those days Israel had no king, and everyone did as they saw fit. These chapters demonstrate the depravity of humanity proving that we are not basically good people. Judges starts with the death of Joshua, and Israel's disobedience in failing to conquer their promised land and ends with Israel in civil war against Benjamin, in desparate need of a king! When you are a slave to evil forces the arrival of a king is such good news. Jesus is the King that unlike human leaders provides salvation, rescuing us from sin.
