More than Forgiveness B.R. Titus 2:11-14 11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing…

A crippled woman came to worship God. In the Lukan passage, we come upon a simple story of a woman who was worshipping in the same synagogue as Jesus. She had a physically crippling condition. Her condition kept her from standing straight up for eighteen years, not unlike what some experience today from…
Annanias and Sapphira contrast with Barnabas All those who claimed Jesus Christ, sold property and gave it to the Apostles to be distributed. Barnabas was recognized as a leader of distinction for giving encouragement who sold a field and gave the money to the Apostles for distribution. Annanias and…
Our passage for today is John 13:1-17. I encourage you to open your bibles to read the passage with me. This is likely a familiar passage for many of you. What I would ask is that we let go of the thoughts that I have heard this before, and truly look at it with fresh eyes, as it were. When we started…
A childlike spirit is the litmus test for spiritual maturity and against spiritual disorder. Not all spiritual growth is healthy. The Chinese has a term “Zouhuo Rumo 走火入魔,” which is equivalent to Kundalini Syndrome, a condition when a spiritual pactice gets derailed or melfunctioned that leads to mental and emotional disorders. In Christianity, I would call it Pharisee Syndrome. Pharisees are very spiritual people. They are very "faithful" to the scriptures, but according to Jesus, they are not "fruitful" because they got stuck in their egos and arrogance that caused the spiritual disorder.
Introduction: Refresh: to restore strength and animation to. To renovate, revive, restore. Review: David made a colossal mess but somehow came out victorious and even singing. How? We need refreshing, it is freely offered in Jesus. In our passage today we see the heart of the gospel, of God’s grace.…
The Life of Jesus
Early references to the House of God Ge 28:16–17 “house of God” was first used by Jacob to commemorate the place where he met with God ; Ge 28:19 “Bethel” means “house of God”. See also Ge 28:22 and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God’s house. And of all that you give me I will…
Have you ever heard the sentiment that goes something like this-”I don’t want to become too serious a Christian because then I will have to change my life so much that I won’t have any fun anymore.” Have you ever heard that? Have you ever thought that? I can remember in high school one of my class mates…

Over the years I have had the pleasure of getting to know singer and songwriter Danny Oertli. One of the things I have noticed about many of the songs he writes is that they stem from life events he has gone through. When you understand the events and details of his life you have a new appreciation for…

The Gospel of Luke
Ed Tulloch • Hope City Church Edinburgh • Sermon • • 41 views • 24:42
Jesus cleanses ten lepers who cry out to him, hoping for an end to their separation from other people and from the community of faith - but only one comes back to give him thanks and praise, recognising him as God in the flesh, the source of healing and salvation. Jesus comes to end our separation from God - and if we understand he is the source of that healing, we will overflow with thankfulness towards him.

1 Peter 1:18-25 We are redeemed by the blood of Christ. We have assurance revealed to us through the Word of God and by his love. We are to obey the word and truth and we are purified. Through this union with God we are able to love; through it all and in every circumstance.
