Shingai rounds up the Spirit and Truth series.
Pastor Alan Graham preaches on faith, taking risks and dreaming.
Romans 4: 18 – 21 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”[a] 19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. 20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, 21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
Shingai looks at why we need both the Word and the Spirit.
2 Cor 13:14 AMP The grace (favour and spiritual blessing) of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the presence and fellowship (the communion and sharing together, and participation) in the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Eph 3:18-19 AMP …..That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!
The new is in the old concealed, and the old is in the new revealed. Roak looks at Living Unveiled, 2 Corinthians 3: 7 – 18
Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses’ face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end, will not the ministry of the Spirit have even more glory? For if there was glory in the ministry of condemnation, the ministry of righteousness must far exceed it in glory.
Reverend John Bell, looks at the foundations of a healthy church. Ephesians 4: 11 – 16
1 Peter 4 Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. 2 As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. Pastor Andrew Ellis look at suffering in the Chirstian walk and brings Peters letter into our context
Mike Southall continues with the Spirit and Truth Spirit. He preaches on the Theatre of Worship.
Psalms 34: 1 – 3 , I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. 2 I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. 3 Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.
Tapedza preaches on The work of the Spirit. Knowing the person of the Spirit. 1 Cor 2: 10 – 11 but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.
Ephesians 1:17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
Rob begins the new series, Spirit and Truth, as he looks at The Power of the Word. John 14:6 – 17 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
