A Man With Fear But No Faith

A Man With Fear But No Faith Text: Acts 24:22-27 After his third missionary journey and Paul’s return to Jerusalem, such was the divisive nature of Paul and the message he preached, he finds himself taken to Caesarea for his own safety to be kept in Herod’s judgment hall by Felix, the Roman Governor of Judea.

He made…

The Mass Rejection of the Mighty Saviour

The Mass Rejection of the Mighty Saviour Text: John 6:52-71 If there’s one thing certain it is that if God undertakes to teach someone, He will be successful in doing so.

Why We Should Pray

Why We Should Pray Text: Jeremiah 33:3 My text this this morning is found in the midst of dire circumstances. It’s the eleventh year of Zedekiah’s reign and Jeremiah is still imprisoned.

How You Can Be Sure of Heaven or Hell

How You Can Be Sure of Heaven or Hell Text: John 6:30-40 Jesus is still addressing the crowd that sought for Him at the other side of Galilee. Their motive is because Jesus seems useful. But what Jesus is expressing to them is that He is vital. He moves their attention from the temporal to the eternal, and He makes it perfectly clear how one obtains the eternal provision…

Christ Condemns Carnal Appetites

Christ Condemns Carnal Appetites Text: John 6:22-29 v1-15 – Jesus performs the miracle of feeding the five thousand. It was a sign to show He is the Bread of Life v35, v41, v48, v51, v55.
