God is King

1 Samuel 8:1-22

Jesus our King leads us. Do we reject him as the Israelites did?
We are called to be different, not to blend in.
Do we come to God when making decisions or look for security elsewhere?

Liberty to the Captives

Acts 5:17-26
Luke 4:18-19 – “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.

Despite persecution God loves to free us.

The Story Continues

Acts 5:17-42

There is much persecution which is how the devil attacks the church. We mustn’t get complacent in how we serve God, as the Laodiceans did (Revalations 3:14-22).

The Acts of God and His apostles

Acts chapters 1 to 28.

This book is the acts of God through many people. How will you allow Him to work through you this week?

Ananias and Sapphira

Acts 5:1-11

Consider what it means for me to be God’s temple.
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?
1 Corinthians 3:16.

3 months later

Acts 5:12-18

Would we be as bold as the first apostles? Matthew 10:16 says ‘be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.’

Scripture Union and COLT

An update on the work of Scripture Union locally and an introduction to the new Crying Out Loud Trust worker.

‘You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same.’

Freedom and love go together. If we know that we are loved we are free to love others.
