The Jesus Effect

Do you long for freedom from sin to the same extent that you long to be free from suffering?
We should be people who although we struggle with sin nevertheless hate sin.
Here we look at the Psalm of repentance from King David after his confession of adultery with Bathsheba.

Unity: More than just a ‘nice idea’

How does the world see the church? Divided? Paul wrote to a divided and quarrelling church in Corinth about such issues.

Reading:John 17:1-26; 1 Corinthians 1:10-17
Sermon Points:
A: Disunity dishonours God

  1. Recognise the problem
  2. Love God first and others next – Putting other peoples interests first.
  3. Hand the situation over to God

B: Unity is given by God

  1. Unity is not uniformity.
  2. Unity is not cowardice

C: Unity centres on Jesus
