12 ‘I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.’ (John 16:12-15)

3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. 7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. 8 This is why it says:
‘When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.’ (Ephesians 4:3-8)

One of the problems that people have with the Christian God is the concept of God being a Trinity. They ask questions such as: “Why must God be a Trinity?” After all they say, the word Trinity isn’t in the Bible! And they are partly correct, insomuch as that there is no explicit Bible text using the word trinity. However, the concept is explicit throughout the Bible.

Come and explore what the Bible has to say about God being the Trinity. What are some of the problems which can be overcome concerning this essential doctrine of the Christian faith? How does the Bible illustrate the concept of God being Trinity? “God is one” the Bible screams throughout, so how can you say that God is Trinity? These and other questions we seek to answer! So come on it! Let’s discover together more about God as Trinity by listening to the podcast!

“16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17)

7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: he sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. (1 John 4:7-12)

Come and explore what the Bible has to say about God of Love. What does this mean for the unbeliever and for the Christian? How has God’s love been seen in the past? How is God’s love seen today? Let’s discover together more about God and His love by listening to the podcast!

“22 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. (Hebrews 12:22-24)

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:11-15)

Come and explore what the Bible has to say about God of Judgment. You may just be surprised! What does this mean for the unbeliever and for the Christian? Will Christians be judged, and if they are, what concerning? Let’s discover together more about several aspects concerning God and His judgments by listening to the podcast!

“1 Now about the collection for the Lord’s people: do what I told the Galatian churches to do. 2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. (1 Corinthians 16:1-2)

“6 Remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 9 As it is written: ‘They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor; their righteousness endures for ever.’” (2 Corinthians 9:6-9)

Every Christian, has in differing quantities time, possessions and, of course, money. The whole Christian community is to be a community where the strongest members support the weakest members. This applies not only to the local church, but also to the universal Church and therefore has a national and international context as well.

Come and explore what the Bible has to say about the Christian and and giving. Discover more about what giving involves and what the role of giving as perhaps the greatest indicator of your spiritual growth. What is the role of God to be in your giving to others? Giving, a practical part of love and more can be heard by listening to the podcast! Go give and live!

“3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people – 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel 6 that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world – just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. (Colossians 1:3-6)

 

“5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” (1 John 1:5-7)

Fellowship! I meet people who tell me they are Christians, but don’t want to go to a church anymore. But by not doing so, they are missing out on perhaps one of the greatest blessings of being a Christian: fellowship. One of the great things of being a Christian, is the simple act of fellowship, which results from walking with one another (1 John 1:7). God has created us for fellowship and Jesus Christ has redeemed us so that we can have this fellowship together.
Come and explore what the Bible has to say about the Christian and and fellowship. Discover more about what fellowship is, why the Chrsitian is to engage in fellowship and the various ways in which the Bible describes Christian fellowship in action. Being in fellowship with other Christians, is part of following Jesus Christ, so come and explore this dynamic word, Fellowship, by downloading and listening to the podcast!

“You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine.“ (Titus 2:1)

The word ‘doctrine’ in a lot of places is unfashionable. The words translated as “doctrine” are found frequently in the letters written by Paul, primarily 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus. The original words are didache (the act of teaching) and didaskalia (that which is taught) used fifteen times. are translated as doctrine. Doctrine is the study of God, as revealed through the pages of the Bible. Why do Christians need to learn and study doctrine? What does this mean for the Christian? Why does it matter for a Christian to learn and study doctrine regarding the God they follow?

Come and explore what the Bible has to say about the Christian and doctrine and discover why it is part of following Jesus Christ, by downloading and listening to the podcast!

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:45)

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life”. (John 3:16)

Even a cursory look at the media will tell you that the world is messed up. Is there any hope? Yes, indeed there is! That is why God sent Jesus. Jesus is the hope. Jesus came to serve rather than be served. That is why Jesus came to give His life, so humanity may have a hope. God made the world perfect and humanity was in a harmonious relationship with God. Humanity messed it up and broke the relationship bonds with God. When the time was right, God became human, in order to bring humanity back into relationship with Himself.

That man was Jesus Christ and it was His death on a Roman cross nearly 2,000 years ago which was the gracious act of a generous God reaching out to the world that he loves. Without Jesus’ death on the cross there would be no hope for the world. That He died is without doubt, but why did He have to die? What gain do we have as His Disciples?

What does the Cross of Jesus Christ reveal to us about God’s character and the solution to humanity’s biggest problem? Come and explore what the Bible has to say about the cross of Jesus Christ, by downloading and listening to the podcast!

13 To which of the angels did God ever say,
‘Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet’?
14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:13-14)

11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering
thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand.
They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders.
12 In a loud voice they were saying:
‘Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honour and glory and praise!’
(Revelation 5:11-12)

Bookshops are filled with books on Angels! But we must beware, for not all angels are good! We know from the Bible that there are good angels and bad angels. As we explore in this Podcast about angels, we discover the answer to question such as: What are angels? What is their purpose or function? How can we tell the difference between good angels and bad angels?"

Jesus came and told His Disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make Disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new Disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)

We know from the New Testament record, that the sacrament of baptism is commanded for all people who believe in Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38). We also know that it naturally followed after conversion (Acts 2:37; Acts 10:47; Acts 16:33). In this Podcast we explore questions such as What does baptism mean? What is baptism? Who is baptism for? What format should baptism take?

If you have not been baptized and would call yourself a Christian, then we would suggest that if you are able to, you go and ask your church leader about how you can undergo this vital part of Christian life.
Come and explore the topic of Baptism by downloading and listening to the podcast!

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
(Romans 5:1-11)

If you are a Christian, you are blessed! Did you know that? Today we see together from Romans 5:1-11, the blessings that the Christian has because of God's extraordinary love seen through Jesus' death on the cross. Let’s explore these blessings together! Download and listen to the podcast!
