Spoke this evening on the ‘Rich man and Lazarus’ a sobering message on getting your priorities right and living in hope no matter your circumstance. Found this hard work and ran out of time, but don’t let that put you off.
A stimulating morning, spoke to the kids about what it means to ‘wait on the Lord’ from Psalm 27, then preached on Jesus growth as a human being from Lukes gospel chapter 2 vv.39 to 52. A stimulating concept, you can here the sermon by following the link in the side bar.
Tonight’s sermon was on the subject of ‘Angels’, Acts 12 and Hebrews 1:14 were my texts. Found some freedom and liberty, certainly got people thinking and talking.
I preached on the whole of Matthew 2 under the title of “According to Plan” looking at the way Matthew identifies Old Testament passages which confirm that Jesus is the Christ.
Quite well attended, a couple from Notingham were with us as the direct result of being spoken to in the town centre on Friday.
A fine day but a bit windy restricting how much literature we could display. Nick spoke to a number of people, one man sounded serious about coming to Church, then he had a wrangle with two JW’s. I also spoke with a number of people, two non church goers from the West Midlands who listened and departed with literature. A lady spoke at length, saying she believed in a higher power but could not define it as any one god, she also took literature. A number of people took the ‘Goodnews’ leaflet gladly and spoke on the move.
Spoke this evening on the subject of demons, well received and now have evan more subjects to speak on. Nick’s parents were out this evening, its hard to tell how much they understand.
Quite well attended, 4 visitors as well as Margaret and John.
A good morning, some real freedom to preach. The Subject was ‘Jesus IS Messiah’ based on Luke 2:25-28. You can get to the recording through the sidebar link.
About 25 people turned up and were presented with a stimulating account of God’s saving grace in Dwayna’s life, presented in such a way as to present the gospel as she went along. A small woman with a big heart for Christ and the lost, a real stimulus to press on working for the Glory of God in the salvation of sinners.
Went to Helmsley in the afternoon, weather better, I preached for a few minutes and went on to have some marvellous conversations. First with a lady who lives in the same street as I do, she took things away to read. Then there was another lady, raised a methodist but not a believer again she took a leaflet to read. A biker from Halifax was most interesting , saw no need of Christ as he was doing fine by himself, yet he stood and talked for about 10 minutes. Nick spoke with the patronising vicar, may it please God to lift the shutters off his mind.
Rained off in Pickering this morning, did manage to give out flyers on Dwayna Litz visit.
