Jesus tells us to ask for anything in prayer and we will receive it, but why do prayers sometimes seem to go unanswered? In this message we look at what the Bible says about prayer and tackle one of the most challenging questions about prayer.
Should we judge others? Our natural instinct might be to say “No!” but, at the same time we have this very strong intrinsic desire to judge. What do we make of our thoughts on judgements and the ease with which we can make incredibly strong (and often hurtful) judgements?
The most important parts of who we are, are hidden from view. Our thought life, our innermost desires and drives, and our spiritual life are all hidden from most people. We know, and God knows. Jesus repeatedly tells us in the Sermon on the Mount that we should live this “hidden life” with love and […]
How should we pray? What is prayer for? In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus simplifies and clarifies the concept of prayer. In this message we explore God’s desires for all our spiritual life and specifically in prayer.

Jesus tells us that our word should be our word and that we shouldn’t speak falsely. Essentially he says that we should live our lives speaking the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. What would your life look like if you constantly spoke this way? In this message we look at the […]

The second half of the beatitudes continues to present us with challenging truths. Jesus tells us to be merciful peacemakers who suffer well even when we are unjustly treated. It is incredible to look at, but in light of the life, death and resurrection of Christ – we see a new reality unlike anything else […]
The sermon on the mount is one of the most famous sections in all of the Bible. But, it is also one of the most challenging. Jesus opens the sermon with the “Beatitudes” or the supreme blessings. However, what he says is incredibly counter-cultural and counter-intuitive. Is it really true that the spiritually poor are […]
