Good News About Failure

Success failure

There is a temptation for preachers to take the victory of the Gospel beyond the the age that that we live in. The reality is that we all face failure and suffering, but this doesn’t mean that we have failed as Christians or committed some terrible sin. After all, the apostle Paul spent years in prison and was eventually beheaded; was that because he ignored the will of God, or because he followed it?

I have to apologise to the more sensitive, because I do have a bit of a rant 😉

The Fuel of Terrorism

coffins-or-murdered-Coptic-Christians

After a week on the amazing continent of Africa I have seen extremes in several directions – from people kissing the shoes of their favorite ‘man of God’ to God supernaturally mending broken hearts, the appalling murders of Christians to the joyous celebration of a newly wed couple. I have witnessed heart rending poverty and then opulence that makes even a Westerner like me gag; I have delighted in seeing the tears of joy as people come to realise how much they are loved but then have seen others refusing to relent in their religiosity and ministry of condemnation.

We Are Free From The Law

Hi All,ten commandments

There is seems to be much confusion as to where the law of Moses fits in the life of the believer – to cut a long story short, it doesn’t. But to help bring understanding I thought it would be good to let the Bible speak for itself, here are a list of Scriptures that explain what the law is about; I will be doing some videos on a number of these. I have to say thanks to Phil Drysdale for the inspiration behind these, his site is definitely worth checking out.

 

All the Scriptures are from the NAS, but you can have fun looking at different translations. Read more

Grace – The Purity of The Gospel

 

 

The purity of the Gospel is not found in our efforts to live right, but the refusal to add anything to the good news. When the message of Jesus is contaminated with religion and self effort we end in fear and spiritual paralysis. Don’t be intimidated, rather stand unashamed of the truth that what Jesus did was enough to make you right with God.

Apologies for the inferior recording quality.

 

 

Go well my friends 🙂

God Says “I Will” – Radical Grace 5 Podcast

HandsReachDownUp-283x300

Under the Old Covenant the pressure was on for us to fulfil its terms and conditions;  failure to do so could bring dire consequences. Under the New Covenant the story changes from God saying “thou shalt” to “I will”. The pressure of the New Covenant is born by God Himself. It is God that saves us, God that keeps us and God who will raise us.

Radical Grace 3

Radical Grace Podcast 3

Grace is not just a doctrine or study topic, it is a part of who God is, His very nature. Because of what Jesus did we will never be separated or rejected by our heavenly Father. Grace means that sin no longer has dominion over us, no matter what others might say. You are no longer under law, you are saved by grace!

Go well my friends 🙂

Radical Grace 2

Grace is not just a doctrine or study topic, it is a part of who God is, His very nature. Because of what Jesus did we will never be separated or rejected by our heavenly Father. Grace means that our acceptance and right standing is based on what Jesus did and not what we do. Now that is good news!

Go well my friends 🙂

Radical Grace Part 1

 

Grace is not just a doctrine or study topic, it is a part of who God is, His very nature.

What is made available to us through Jesus Christ is positively mind blowing, our words and understanding will never get to the bottom of it. However, this we do know – The grace of God is very, very good news, it is liberating, affirming and life transforming.

Go well my friends 🙂
