Who can summarise a person in one word? To encompass their experiences, identity and personality in one word seems an impossible task! So can we summarise God in one word?
This Bible Talk shows us how the Bible summarises God in one word – Holy. And although the prophet Isaiah shouts “Woe to me!” in God’s presence, there is the hope and promise of one who takes away our guilt and pays the price for our sin.
JesusWORKS aims to introduce you to the Jesus of history by looking at his life, teaching and work. Primarily, it is for the person who wants to check out the claims of Jesus or the claims about Jesus – so that they can make up their own minds about him.
Yet, it is also for any Christian who wants to be prepared to give a reasoned answer for the hope that they have in the gospel of Jesus (1 Pet 3:15).
Jesus calls people to himself, yet he gives everyone the opportunity to examine him and his message before making that decision.
In this talk, we consider the frequently muttered expression ‘If I am good enough, then things will be fine!’. There was a reason why Jesus had to go to the cross – why?
Imagine, after a long day, I drive home to find that the only thing remaining where my house once stood was its smoldering remains! And standing outside was my child holding a sign saying: ‘Hate the sin, Love the Sinner!’.
It is one thing to recognise that sin is bad – in fact so self-evident that there is no chance that it would not be seen! Yet it is a whole new level of self awareness to think that the sinful actions that caused damage and hurt should be separated from the person who caused the damage and hurt – such that the perpetrator should bear no responsibility!
