Update on church re-opening

Dear Church Family, I form light and create darkness; I make well-being and create calamity; I am the LORD, who does all these things. Isaiah 45: 7 If there is one thing this verse teaches us, it is that the Lord is sovereign, and without him, nothing happens. In this, we can therefore trust that…

God is triune

God is…Triune

The word “trinity” is found nowhere in Scripture. And yet the truth of the trinity is everywhere. The unity of God is clear; “hear O Israel, the LORD our God is one” (Dt 6:4) but as early as the first chapter of the Bible the plurality of the Godhead is at least hinted at; “Let…

God is…Different, not Distant

Last week we reflected on the holiness of God. He is holy in the sense that he is morally perfect and pure. He is also holy in the sense that he is utterly distinct and different from everything else. Only God is eternal, immutable, self-sufficient, self-existent and sovereign over all. When Isaiah (and later the…

What Love Always Does ‘[Love] always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.’ 1 Corinthians 13:7 ‘A man may be a good doctor without loving his patients; a good lawyer without loving his clients; a good geologist without loving science; but he cannot be a good Christian without love.’ DL Moody We’ve been looking in…

Love is…- Part 3

What Love Is(n’t) “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast;” 1 Corinthians 13:4 Every coin has two sides. Last week we began to look at what love is; “Love is patient and kind”. Now we begin to reflect on what love isn’t, or rather what love doesn’t; “love does not envy…

Love is… – Part 2

..The life to which we’re called Last week we were reminded of the importance of love. It is the most important command, all of the Law and the Prophets hang on this great appeal; to love God and to love others in his name. Love goes to the very heart not only of what we…

Love your neighbour

Love is… – Part 1

A devotional from Pastor Ross Murphy I remember being asked in a youth group many years ago “if you had the chance to ask God one question what would it be?” Two thousand years ago a man asked Jesus a great question (albeit for questionable motives) One of them, an expert in the law, tested…
