Sermon – The Wisdom of Living for Eternity (1 Corinthians 15:35-16:24)

Read the text – 1 Corinthians 15:35-16:24

This is not the age for the self-fulfilment and glory of human beings – there is an eternity for that (we will be changed and given a new resurrection body). This is the age for the work of the LORD – our labour in the Lord, though it looks weak now, is not vain (like the death of Jesus and like our bodies).

In this talk Dave Swan, warns us from the last section in the first letter to the Corinthians, to not be driven by the present age and by what we see. For now is not the time for the work of the gospel to look splendid, it is the time for gospel work and that work will look weak (v58).

Listen to this world, have your life shaped by the resurrection, so that when you do experience death you might also know the wonder of the resurrection.

Sermon – Apostles’ Creed: The Holy Apostolic Church and the Communion of Saints

Read the texts – Isaiah 25:6-9Ephesians 3:1-21

The final talk in this Apostles’ Creed series and we consider the final lines which help us to recognise that the Christian Life (life in the Spirit) is the best life now and forever. Why?

Nick Lindeback helps us to see the importance of the forgiveness of sin, the comfort of the Christian community, and the hope that is eternal.

Sermon – Apostles’ Creed: Risen Hope

Read the texts – Daniel 12:1-41 Corinthians 15:1-34

We continue in our Apostles’ Creed Bible Talk series and in this talk consider the line which says ‘On the third Day, he rose from the dead’. This gives us opportunity to spend some time looking at the importance of the resurrection of Jesus for us.

In this talk, Ken Noakes looks at some of the evidence for the resurrection, then at what might be lost if the resurrection didn’t happen, before considering why the resurrection is so significant for the believer.

Sermon – Are You Ready To Meet Your Maker? (Romans 8:1-17)

Some people see Christianity as a gamble. If we are wrong about Jesus, we simply live a good life. If we are right about Jesus, everything changes. We aren’t condemned, we have life and peace, and we are co-heirs with Jesus Christ.

The message of this Bible talk is simple – turn to Jesus, and accept him as Lord and Saviour.

Talk – How Can I be Sure? (1 Cor 15:1-19 and John 20:24-31)

LMAP - Easter2019 - CoverPhoto

Foundational to belief of Christianity, is the historical reality of the person of Jesus and with that comes his well-documented life, teaching, death and resurrection.

Whilst it is true that belief in the existence of Jesus may be a no brainer and acknowledging his death traditional – to allow his teachings to shape the way we live, or to hold to the idea of a resurrection – for some is a step too far.

There are a chorus of Atheist voices who have spoken loudly against religion. That is not new, every age in history since and including the time of Jesus has seen opposition to organized religion – and at times, sadly, the opposition has been well placed.

In a series of short talks, we look at what the ‘new atheists’ say about the resurrection, before examine the resurrection for ourselves. The hope that we might be able the weigh up what is said and reordered in scripture and history and make our own decisions about faith.
