Renewal

Change is something that we all have a natural aversion to. And of course not all change is good. However if you look at the Bible we find some rather dramatic changes. Particularly in the book of Acts and in the church of Corinth. The truth never changes. The application of the truth may change with the leading of the spirit and the principles of God's word. We find this true in the life of Paul several times as he attempts to change his methodology in order to reach more people for Christ. If it can be demonstrated that more people will be won to Christ if I wear a polka dot suit. Guess what? I would be wearing a polka dot suit. So let’s look at what changes and what doesn’t change this Sunday morning.

When we think about an opportunity to serve Jesus, we wonder whether or not we have the right stuff to accomplish what is required. This very often comes from the fact that we are skill oriented  rather than asking the question: Can I trust God to supply his strength through me? This one thing I know: God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think. True. But how do we link into his power? That’s the sermon for this coming Sunday.

Christ said “I will build my church,” Matthew 16:18. Christ said the gates of hell will not prevail against the church. But what kind of church? Rarely do churches survive hundreds of years. What happens? This Sunday we will discover what kind of church overcomes the devil and Covid!
