Peace, Perfect Peace.

A wonderful reminder of the only peace that can ever be obtained, a peace so great it passes all understanding, his name is Jesus Christ.

Be Ye Separate

God places a distinction between light and darkness, good and evil, so too between that which is holy and that which is profane, he calls us also to be mindful of that distinction, to separate ourselves also from the unfruitful works of darkness and to be joined to his marvelous light. Be ye separate, be wise with what and whom you associate, Isaiah writes, “To the law and to the testimony, if they speak not according to this word it is because there is no light in them” (Isa 8:20)

The Fullness In Christ

Fullness in Christ (Reading: 2Corinthians 5:11-21) “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”  2Corinthians 5:19 [Pray] Introduction: Today’s message is very much a gospel message. In our reading today [vv 11-21] the apostle Paul highlights [among other things] the spiritual changes that occur in an individual who is born again by virtue of the gospel of Christ. What we realize is…
Service of the King

An Expectation Of Maturity

An Expectation of Maturity [Reading: Hebrews 5:1-14] Introduction: Those of you who have been part of Hope Baptist for any period of time, know how much value we place on the bible and the correct teaching of God’s word. As such we aspire to be everything the word of God says that we should be.  In our reading today we see Paul expounding the Old Testament [Psalms and Genesis in particular]. He explains to his readers: Christ’s priesthood and atoning…

Proving The Will Of God

Proving the Will of God “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”  Romans 12:1-2 Introduction: [Pray] In chapter 12 of Romans we move from the expounding of the gospel…

The Beauty Of Holy Worship

There is a beauty in the holy worship of the Lord that goes perfectly astray with the contemporary Christian Music of the majority of today’s churches. The replacement of Holy Worship with rock music is the complete antithesis to that which the Lord has commanded. The explicit purpose of contemporary music is to separate people from God, the guise of Christian Contemporary Music is a smokescreen. Brother Phillip brings out the high view of God that we ought to retain. We tend to have a high view of ourselves and a low view of God, this must change if we are to realise the Beauty of Holy Worship.
Growing In God

Growing In God

Grow in the Grace and Knowledge of God But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18 Introduction: As many of you may know from my testimony, my walk with the Lord hasn’t been as faithful as it is today. For long periods of time I wasn’t reading my bible and consequently I wasn’t growing. Yet in March 2014, when I…
Peace & Comfort

Hunger For God

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 If your desire is for righteousness [particularly if it is a response to the realization of your own sinfulness] then God WILL satisfy that desire. We know this because his word tells us that he has already provided the means for that desire to be fulfilled.
Behold The Man

PUT ON TRUTH

PUT ON TRUTH In a day and age where the vast majority of people in the world consider truth as a personal preference rather than an absolute, it is important for us all to remember from where truth comes. So vital it is to attain truth, and then to retain truth in order for any person to ever proclaim truth. Put On Truth as we are to Put On Christ, for he alone is the way, the truth and the…
