Building a Secure Life

How can we know love, joy and peace which our circumstance cannot destroy? How can we leave a legacy which time cannot destroy? Chris aplies the teaching of Jesus and invites us to keep on asking, seeking and knocking.

Mark 4

Jesus explained that the word of God was to be scatters widely. His Light was to be allowed to shine. The places of growth can be surprising and the mysterious. Chris challenges us to listen to Jesus teaching and invite widely. Do we still have no faith?

Mark 3

The Pharisees were looking for a reason to condemn Jesus and the teachers of the Law chose to believe the Holy Spirit was evil. We are challenged to look for a reason to believe and to truth in the Spirit’s work. Will you stretch out your hand if Jesus calls you to?

Mark 1

Mark is the shortest gospel. It is constantly aware of the coming conclusion of Jesus’ ministry at the cross. It is one of the earliest attempts to report and begin to make sense of Jesus’ ministry, death and resurrection. We jump straight in to the beginning of Jesus public ministry skipping the birth narrative and the book will close 16 breathless chapters later with the women fleeing for Jesus empty tomb trembling and afraid. We will be reading a chapter each week and asking what God is saying to us through His word.
