    1 John 4:1-16 – Third Person – Befriended

    1 John 4:1-16 – Third Person – Befriended

    Suffering from information overload? One study shows everyone is bombarded by the equivalent of 174 newspapers of data daily. The concerning fact is that the study I quote is a decade old. Do you believe the flow of news has decreased in the last ten years? Even if you discount the internet most of us have radio, TV and other concerns as distractions in our life. Yet amongst this waterfall of information flowing into our minds, we are told God’s Holy Spirit will communicate with us. How do we discern the Spirit of God against other things that pop into our mind? Seeking and discerning the true friend and counsellor who is the Holy Spirit is our topic as we discuss the Third Person: Befriended. 1 John 4:1-16 John 16:12-15 Speaking Notes – Caveat These notes are my speaking notes and are provided as an accompaniment to the recording. Please accept that they are not intended to be a published grammatically correct essay. I do hope and pray however they help you move towards Jesus. Now onto the content…   Service Introduction Before we begin, I just wanted to say that as we meet here every week to worship God we also meet to answer some big questions about who He is, and our relationship with Him. Most of these big questions can not be answered easily or quickly. There are answers to the questions you have about God and His Spirit, but I won’t be able to answer all your questions in a few minutes on a Sunday morning. As an apprentice to Jesus, which is what you are, it is your responsibility to seek some answers to those questions. It’s what you do with the other 167 hours a week that makes you an apprentice to Jesus. All... Read More The post 1 John 4:1-16 – Third Person – Befriended appeared first on Bedhampton Church.

    John 14:12-21 – Third Person – Demystified

    John 14:12-21 – Third Person – Demystified

    Last year on my visit to Ghana one of the attendees at the conference I was teaching at asked me as a simple question. What’s the difference between The Holy Ghost and The Holy Spirit? A simple question which belayed a misunderstanding of who the Holy Spirit really is. Jesus said: “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever – the Spirit of truth.” God’s Spirit is a gift to bless us, one that He would not have us fear or ignore. Over the next few weeks, we explore who the Holy Spirit really is and why Jesus sent The Holy Spirit to us. Along the way, we shall also bust a few myths. John 14:12-21 Acts 2:1-21 The service recording failed so please excuse this recording which has a little echo from my office.

Now onto the content… Today I want to re-introduce us to an old friend who has been a little misunderstood over time. Who is it? Well as you may be aware this series we are in right now is looking at the Holy Spirit. The third person of the trinity. A helper, a guide. God himself. Over the next few weeks, we are going to explore who the Holy Spirit is. You see, It seems to me that across the church there is quite a misunderstanding of who the Holy Spirit is, not just across our family church but often in general and that is incredibly sad. So...

    Remembrance 2019 – A Response of Unity & Love

    Remembrance 2019 – A Response of Unity & Love

    John 15.9-17 Revelation 21.1-4 Speaking Notes – Caveat These notes are my speaking notes and are provided as an accompaniment to the recording. Please accept that they are not intended to be a published grammatically correct essay. I do hope and pray however they help you move towards Jesus. Now onto the content… Sacrifice: An act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy: That is how the dictionary describes the term sacrifice. Today is the Sunday that we perhaps use that word more than any other. Today many will take two minutes to consider the service that men and women have made in the defense of our freedom. I said last year and I say again today, two minutes hardly seems enough for those who paid such a sacrifice, many of whom paid the greatest of sacrifices. Perhaps the greatest way we can honour these men and women is by using the verse we use today to remember them.   Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. When we say those words we are comparing their sacrifice to the sacrifice that our Lord and Saviour made. High honour indeed. If you have ever attended an Alpha course you may have seen a video or heard a speaker once again comparing the sacrifice of those who suffered in war to that our Lord. The story goes that on 31 July 1941 a prisoner escaped from Auschwitz. As a reprisal the Gestapo selected ten men to die in a underground starvation bunker. Francis, one of the men who were selected to die cried out:, `Ah, my poor wife and my children. They’ll never see me again.’ At that moment, a Polish man — unimpressive-looking...

    Matthew 5.43-48 – Love your enemies

    Matthew 5.43-48 – Love your enemies

    Jesus said, “Love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you”, which raises the question who is my enemy? This Sunday we look at that and other questions about this teaching within Matthew. How does this teaching impact all of our daily lives? Another easy week then! 1 Corinthians 13 Matthew 5:43-48 Speaking Notes – Caveat These notes are my speaking notes and are provided as an accompaniment to the recording. Please accept that they are not intended to be a published grammatically correct essay. I do hope and pray however they help you move towards Jesus. Now onto the content… Introduction We are camped out in Matthew which is our background text when we are not looking at another series. Over the next few weeks before we head into Advent we will have a couple of opportunities to move on in this gospel. So maybe this is a good time to re-read chapters 1-6 and remind ourselves of this brilliant scripture. We are currently reading Jesus’ words in the sermon on the mount in Chapters 5 – 7 of Matthew. The more astute amongst you may have noticed that I have skipped a section. Matthew 5.27-32 deals with the painful subject of Adultery and Divorce. I wanted to let you know that sometimes we have to tackle difficult subjects and whilst we have jumped over them, for now, we will return to look at these difficult areas another time. Not that the subject area we land on today is easy. Far from it, it is a most difficult subject and not least of all for me. Today we look at what Jesus may have meant when he said we are to love our enemies. Outline Jesus starts off by saying. 43 ‘You have heard that it was said,...

    Matthew 5:21-26 – Anger

    Matthew 5:21-26 – Anger

    For the next few weeks, we return to the Gospel of Matthew. This is a good time to re-read chapter five. On Sunday we review what it means to respond to our anger as an apprentice to Jesus. “Settle matters quickly” Matthew’s text reads. It is clear that there is no place for unresolved conflict, gossip and anger among the people who call themselves the Church. To be an emotionally healthy spirit-filled Christian we have to tackle these issues head-on and with grace. Who said being a follower of Jesus was easy? This Sunday we find out what it means to live out those attitudes in our life. Colossians 3:1-14 Matthew 5:21-26 We are sorry for the sound quality this week which is not the norm.   The post Matthew 5:21-26 – Anger appeared first on Bedhampton Church.
