How Christ Compels Us

A clip from lead preacher Richie Lewis on the love of Christ.


let Me love you

Over recent weeks we have been exploring John 15 – what it means to abide in the Vine. In the final hours of Jesus’ life with his disciples, he placed great emphasis on this imagery.


diVINE supply

The gospel of grace is a blessed revelation: that what God requires of us he himself supplied and supplies in the person of his beloved son Jesus. Lets discover more of it today. This is Jesus to his disciples on the evening before his death…


Righteous Reminder

Last week we zeroed in on Romans chapter 5 verse 8… But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (AKJV) You will remember that the phrase “Christ died for us” is in the aorist tense, meaning a past action completed never to be…


Reigning Grace

Today we revisit the book of Romans. I recommend going there often. It is the doctrinal foundation of our faith. There, the apostle Paul unpacks in great and compelling detail what the finished work of the cross has accomplished for those who trust into it. Romans was arranged first in the order of New Covenant…


Blessed In His Rest

The imagery of being IN Christ occurs over a hundred times in the apostle Paul’s letters (i.e. in Christ, in Him, in the Beloved). Today’s message begins there…


Abide N’ Ride!

John, the “beloved disciple,” has provided our working text over recent weeks… 1 John 4:16a (NKJV) And we have known and believed (Trusted in) the love that God has for us.


Rest In Divine Reliance

You are God’s original idea brought to life through Jesus. He willed for you to be His child and He is happy that you are! Your new birth is proof of it (Jn. 3:3, 1 Pet. 1:3 & 23, Jn. 3:6).


Labour Of Love

WORKS! It’s a scary word if you’ve been burned (or burnt out) by religion. By “religion” I mean all systems of self-rightness towards God.


His Grace Towards Me

But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:10 (ESV) Paul embeds himself in God’s grace.


The Lord Our Righteousness

In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely; Now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. ~ Jeremiah 23:6 (NKJV) In Jeremiah’s day man supplied his own righteousness in keeping with his fallen covenant head, the first man Adam.


Awake To Righteousness

AWAKE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. ~ 1 Cor. 15:34 (NKJV) The apostle gives a wake up call – not to the unsaved community but to the household of faith. That he would sound this kind of alarm must…

Why Pastors Preach Law

This clip reveals why some pastors preach law and why many buy into it.


A More Excellent Way

Last week we revisited the story of Martha and Mary, and their contrasting approaches towards Jesus. In many ways, they represent two types of Christianity today.
