Paul’s Final Words to the Elders of the Ephesian Church

Sunday, 7th November 2021

Readings: 2 Chronicles 36; Hosea 4; Acts 20

The Apostle Paul’s words to the elders of the church at Ephesus in Acts 20 makes very moving reading. Paul’s sense that there would be trouble in Jerusalem is poignant, as it drives him to express his deep affection for the church, while at the same time giving a stark warning to its overseers of the possible problems lying ahead for the Christian communities in Asia.

Baptism

Monday, 1st November 2021

Reading: Romans 6                                                                            

Over the years there have often been disagreements about baptism: what it is, whether it is necessary and who should receive it. Despite this, Bible teaching on the subject is clear.

A further look into Daniel and his prophecies (Part 3 of 3)

Monday, 1st November 2021

“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered and said to the king ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image you have set up.’”                                                                                             (Daniel 3:16-18)

A Chosen Instrument

Sunday, 31st October 2021

Readings: 2 Chronicles 29; Daniel 9; Acts 9

The opening chapters of the book of Acts centres largely around the activities of the apostle Peter, and he remains the focus right up to the middle of chapter 12. Then the spotlight switches to the apostle Paul, and remains on him for the rest of the book. So, the fact that the conversion of Saul of Tarsus whilst on the road to Damascus takes place during the Peter ‘phase’ of the book has to be significant. and that is brought out in Acts 9:31:

A further look into Daniel and his prophecies (Part 2 of 3)

Monday, 25th October 2021
The problem with humanity is humanity itself. We hear all the concerns about saving the planet, but the planet could go on fine – there are millions of them up there doing very well! It’s men and women who need saving, not the planet, and because of our own faith and knowledge of God’s word, we all understand this well.

Faith and Service

Sunday, 24th October 2021

Readings: 2 Chronicles 20; Daniel 2; John 20, 21

When Paul writes to the brethren and sisters in Thessalonica it is clear that the time spent there was dear to him, and that he loves this small ecclesia very much. This becomes more astounding when brought into perspective with the amount of time Paul actually spent in Thessalonica, possibly as little as one month. Yet his faith in the strength of this ecclesia may be seen in 1 Thessalonians 1:3-4:

“Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father. Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.”

A further look into Daniel and his prophecies (Part 1 of 3)

Monday, 18th October 2021

In our last study on Daniel[1] we looked at his early life and how he had to adapt to living in Babylon with his three friends. The circumstances were the opposite to Abraham’s, where he left voluntarily, and moved at God’s command to a land that God would show him and will ultimately give him. Daniel was moved by force from that land and taken back to the land Abraham had come from.

We know from the following parable of Jesus that his rejection and crucifixion by Israel would have severe consequences:

The Good Shepherd

Sunday, 17th October 2021

Readings: 2 Chronicles 8; Ezekiel 43; John 9, 10

Our New Testament reading for today is taken from John 10. It is the parable of Jesus as ‘The Good Shepherd’, which is well known to us all, but always a great source of comfort in our lives. It is only found in the Gospel of John. The parable tells us a literal truth, but has a spiritual meaning and application to every one of us.

Accepted in the Beloved

Monday, 11th October 2021
“Redemption through his blood” (Part 2 of 2) Paul states in Ephesians 1:4 that “we should be holy and without blame before him in love”. How then can we come to be in this holy and unblameable state before God? Well v6,7 state that, “he hath made us accepted in the beloved [Jesus]. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins”. Our faith in the sacrifice of Jesus has therefore afforded us this holy and highly privileged position. We have not attained it on our own merits, nor earned it through our work but we are chosen recipients of the grace of God.
