To Glorify God and Enjoy Him Forever

Sunday 19/09/2021 @ 11:30 am / Hebrews 12:18-29

This morning we looked at Hebrews 12:18-29 at the importance of gathering together. Unfortunately the memory card filled up during our service but I’ve included below the points for listening to God.

Listen humbly

We don’t stand over scripture but under it. If we sit under scripture it will change us and form us to be like Jesus by the Spirit.

Listen intently

Fight to stay alert. Some Puritans used to bite into cloves to stay awake during sermons, some used to put needles in their legs. Now they would have preached sometimes for 2 hours.

Consider saying Amen when the Lord encourages you; think about taking notes to help you listen and remember. Fight that urge to think about work, school, or the roast in the oven.

Listen biblically

Use your mind and your bible. Bring your own bible to worship and you can underline and highlight and do as you feel is right. You can search the scriptures and ask, is what he is saying right and true. I would love to see that. The Bereans heard Paul preach, searched the scriptures and deemed what he said to be true.

Listen personally

Listen for yourself, not just for someone else. Don’t come to critique but to consider what God might be saying to you

Listen communally

Listen for the good of your brothers and sisters. Listen for the good of new converts and to disciple others around you. We are to model what worship looks like. Our children learn to worship by watching us. If we look or act bored then they will pick that up.

Listen obediently

Don’t be a hearer of the word only but strive to be a doer of the word

Listen practically

Think about specific ways that you could apply the message to your life

Listen gratefully

Be thankful that God speaks to his people, including you

Who We Are

We are a community of people from different places and backgrounds who gather around Jesus Christ.

We believe that He rescues people from the emptiness of life and invites them to live life to the full. 

We are not perfect, we struggle like everyone else, but we are committed to learning from Jesus how to live the life He has given and we are excited about becoming more like Him.

The pandemic has interrupted all our lives. There has been a stripping away of even legitimate activity, providing us with time and space to think - not in itself a bad thing. As the new year opens up before us we can chose to let the news bulletins order our lives or...

CHURCH FOCUS – New Year, New Challenge

New Year resolutions are usually broken by the 5th January. Most of them don’t work because we tough it out and do it alone. So I’m proposing we take a different approach this year. Make the resolution to read your Bible from beginning to end and see how it all fits...
