The Armour Of God

Joe, 6 years ago

We’re going to look at a series of Bible Studies about the Armour of God.  A famous passage, but how much do we really know about it, and how is it relevant to Christians today?  Here’s the passage in mind, in Ephesians 6:10-18: 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the Read more…

Iron Sharpens Iron

Joe, 6 years ago

The topic of today’s study is ‘Iron Sharpens Iron’, based on a nifty bible verse – Proverbs 27:17: As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. It’s fascinating that, as Christians, we are sharpened just by being around other like-minded believers.  Some of the questions further down relate to on the early believers, at a time Read more…

Your Will Be Done? Not Always Easy!

Joe, 6 years ago

Our human side often means we like to take control of things.  The only problem with it is that sometimes this is at odds with what God wants to do.  God’s plan can even seem counter-intuitive at first, but as Isaiah 55:8-9 puts it: 8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” Read more…

Does God forget?

Pete Harrigan, 6 years ago

Does God forget things? Well not quite, but he doesn’t remember our sins once we repent of them: “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more” ~ (Hebrews 8:12). A slight difference then maybe, but surely it takes even more love and grace to ‘not remember’ something than it does to ‘forget’ it? i.e. Read more…
