Encounters with Jesus

Mark 5:21-43

Jairus – “don’t be afraid, just have faith” the unhealthy women -“your faith has made you well.” Even if our faith is as small as a mustard seed, we can still move mountains.

The lyrics for the song at the end of this sermon can be found here.

Who am I and what drives me?


Is my sense of identity based on how I or others see me and does this drive me or can I see myself as God does? We are dearly loved children trying to imitate God and living a life of love.


Looking back with 20:20 vision

Romans 8:18-28

  1. Do I truly love God?
  2. Do I need to reflect on my past and see His hand working for good in my life?
  3. Do I need to tell God that I am available to be called for His purposes?

But God…

Philippians 4:19

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

Would my faith be stronger if my dreams had become reality?

No Fear in Love

1 John 4:12-18

No fear in love. Fear has to do with punishment. We can be made perfect in love.  Are we shaped more by fear of punishment by God or love of God for His grace?

True or False?

1 John 4:4-6

John 16:12-13 – I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.  But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.

Growth you say?

Test the Spirit

1 John 4:1-3

There are sometimes different interpretations of scripture. We should ‘test the Spirit’ to know whether they should be believed or not.
