Imperishable Seed

Today's message isImperishable Seed, the next message in our 1 Peter series. In this message we learn that we cannot make spiritual growth happen, but we can create an environment that is favourable for our spiritual growth. Pastor Sean teaches, starting from 1 Pet 1:2, what our part is to play in our spiritual growth. Peter says that we need to "purify our souls". We are instructed to maintain the purification that God gives us - to keep our motives, hearts, attitudes and affections pure. We learn that the cleansing is not external, it is internal - what is going on in our hearts and souls. Peter teaches how we go about purifying our souls. Often, we can make the mistake of thinking that the work is God's alone, but that is not the case. We have a responsibility to God to do our part. As the message continues, Pastor Sean explains what Imperishable Seed is, and expands on Peter's teaching in the first chapter of this letter. We hope God touches your heart and that you are encourage...

Ransomed

Ransomed is the title of the next message in our 1 Peter series. Pastor Sean teaches that an underlying theme in 1 Peter is "the fear of the Lord". Peter emphasises that we must make sure that God is No. 1 in our lives. Starting in verse 18, the message begins with what Peter means by "ransomed". We learn that before any of creation had existed, God had determined that He would ransom us back to Himself. He already knew that we were going to "mess up" and cause separation from Him, and He had a plan in place to redeem us. The message teaches what our ransom was, and what it cost God to rescue us. The amount of a ransom depicts the value. God paid all He had for us. We learn about the blood of Christ and the significance and power of it as the message continues. We hope you enjoy this next instalment of the 1 Peter series.

Be Holy

Today's message by Pastor Sean Wood isBe Holy, the next instalment of the 1 Peter series. Today's scripture reference begins at 1 Pet 1:13 in the continuation of this Series. Peter continues with "therefore", which always indicate that we need to stop and consider what it is "there for". We are instructed to "gird up the loins of our minds". Pastor Sean explains what this means for Christians, and teaches what our response to this needs to be. He also covers what it means to be "sober minded" in our living, in our attitudes and in our doctrine. "Set your hope" is another phrase that is explained in this episode. Learn where we are to set our hope and the benefits that gives. Peter instructs christians to be "obedient children". We learn what God expects from us and how it is possible to live in obedience before Him. Note, that there is a "but" in this sentence as well. Peter instructs us to be holy.

World View Part 2

This message isWorld View Part 2 byEvangelist Stuart Millar. Today Stuart looks at the different religious world views across the globe. As discussed in Part 1, a person's behaviour and beliefs all stem from their values and world view. What we believe and what we value effects every area of our lives - what we think and what we do. Stu then covers the changing beliefs in western world views from the 1st century to the present. He discusses how originally the western world believed in Pre-modern Theism, up until the 19th century, where belief was in one God and creator. After the 19th century we moved into the Modern era, where it became apparent that many things that had been attributed to "the spiritual" were now attributed to Science. For example, previously when someone became ill, it had been attributed to sin or spiritual reasons, as Science developed, it became apparent that some illness was due to the spread of bacteria and viruses. As Science developed further, many people ...

Raise Your Expectation

Today's message is the third in our 1 Peter Series by Pastor Sean Wood -Raise Your Expectation. We could do with more hope and expectation in our lives. John Maxwell says: "Where there is no hope in the future there is no power in the present". There is power in hope and expectation. Pastor Sean begins this message by referring to the story in the gospels of the woman with an issue of blood. He notes that each of the miracles in the gospels are not prescriptive, they are descriptive. The important thing is that, as in the case of this woman, each person who experienced a miracle encountered Christ. In this instance, Jesus was pressed by people on every side. His popularity had been growing, but the gospels note that this woman reached out and touched Him, and Jesus was aware of it in spite of how many people surrounded Him. She had heard the reports about Jesus and believed in her heart that He could help her. She had hope and expectation and reached out to Him believing that she wo...

Chosen Aliens

Today's message is the second sermon from 1 Peter -Chosen Aliensby Pastor Sean Wood. In this teaching, we learn the real meaning of being chosen, foreknowledge and predestination. Peter's letters were written right at the beginning of Emperor Nero's reign. As history shows, Nero was a disturbed and dangerous individual. It is important to note that the audience Peter is writing to consists of suffering Christians. They were living far away from Jerusalem and they were being persecuted. If your life currently feels like you are experiencing "cannon ball after cannon ball", then Peter has some encouraging words for you.God had won Peter's heart, as we saw in last week's message, and God desires to win the hearts of every person on the planet. When Moses took 40 days to come down from the mountain where God gave to him the ten commandments, the Israelites pressed Aaron to create an image for them to worship. Aaron built the golden calf and they called it Yahweh. The Israelites worshipe...

Dance of the Mayfly

Today's message isDance of the Mayfly by Pastor Sean Wood. It is the first message in a Series on 1 Peter. Pastor Sean opens his message commenting on the first six words of the book 1 Peter, "Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ". The fact that Peter has reached this point indicates that something amazing has happened in his life. The life cycle of the mayfly is an amazing process. This insect transforms into a creature in adulthood that is unrecognisable from where it began. So it is similarly, with butterflies and dragon flies. The transformation of these insects is indicative of what can happen in our lives when we choose to allow God to change us. The mayfly nymph has the potential and DNA of the adult mayfly within it from the beginning of its life. When it has transformed into the mayfly it breaks through from one realm into another and you cannot see any evidence of the nymph. Pastor Sean suggests that this is what God would like to do in every one of our lives, and that is wha...
