5th October 2014: Communion - Vanuatu Bible Institute - Part 1

Many today don’t realise the importance of Communion. Jesus told us to take Communion whenever we meet together.

258

12th October 2014: Communion - Vanuatu Bible Institute - Part 2

The wine or grape juice (whichever is the case) represents the Blood of Christ atoning for our sin. The bread or cracker represents His Body broken for us, giving us victory over our fleshly nature, which is broken and disabled when we come to Christ.

268

19th October 2014: The Holy Spirit - Vanuatu Bible Institute - Part 1

Our Salvation depends upon the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives - 1 John 5:11-12

268

26th October 2014: The Holy Spirit - Vanuatu Bible Institute - Part 2

The Church is an organism formed by the presence of The Holy Spirit, not an organisation formed by man.

257

2nd November 2014: Giving - Vanuatu Bible College - Part 1

Jesus said, Where a man’s treasure is, there his heart will be also - Matthew 6:21. Make sure your treasure is God and not money.

249

9th November 2014: Giving - Vanuatu Bible College - Part 2

If you serve God in your giving you will be blessed above what you’re able to contain.

264

16th November 2014: Giving - Vanuatu Bible College - Part 3

He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly. So give not grudgingly or under pressure, for God loves a cheerful giver - 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

271

23rd November 2014: Never the Same - If You Wait on Him - Part 1

You cannot possibly have a relationship with Jesus Christ and remain unchanged. To do so would mean you really don’t know Him at all.

246

30th November 2014: Never the Same - If You Wait on Him - Part 2

Building the relationship with God through prayer and Bible Study is the most powerful thing we can do to affect a change to living out God’s purpose for us.

250

7th December 2014: Never the Same - Meditating on the Word of God - Part 1

One thing the enemy doesn’t want us to do is read God’s Word, because he knows just how powerful we become when we do.

272

14th December 2014: Never the Same - Meditating on the Word of God - Part 2

The promises of God are true and effective and unchangeable. They that wait on God, meditate on God’s Word shall renew their strength - Isaiah 40:31

272

21st December 2014: Jesus - The True Gift

Jesus is the true Christmas Gift. All other gifts are merely representations of God’s Gift of Salvation to us. What a pity so many go through the motions of Christmas and never come to an understanding of what it is truly all about.

280

28th December 2014: Protection from Deception - Only The Truth Can Set You Free

The Gospel of the Bible is God’s Gospel. It’s message and truth will never change. 75% of the Bible contains warnings about deception, false prophets and false teaching and adding to or taking away from God’s Word.

270

4th January 2015: A New Beginning

Every year we are presented with a new opportunity to change our lives for the better. New Year’s Resolutions abound. True change can only take place when it happens in the heart and only God can do that.

278

11th January 2015: We Are a Bible Believing Church - Part 1

If you don’t have the truth, then you don’t have freedom. Make a commitment to read and study God’s Word daily in 2015. Your ongoing freedom depends on it.

277

18th January 2015: We Are a Bible Believing Church - Part 2

Whatever God does endures forever. Nothing can be added to it and nothing can be taken from it. So fear God and take nothing he says in His Word lightly.

262

25th January 2015: We Are a Bible Believing Church - Part 3

If we don’t maintain a belief in the truth of God’s Word, then we cannot maintain freedom! With a trend to ignore The Bible and follow The Holy Spirit today, comes a trend toward deception. We forsake Bible reading to our own peril.

267

1st February 2015: We Are a Bible Believing Church - Part 4

Jesus is the radiance of the Glory of God. There is no end to God’s blessing or the power of His Word. He wants us to receive everything that He died to give us, so let’s not allow ourselves to be robbed of anything that God has provided.

273

8th February 2015: We Are a Soul Winning Church - Part 1

What qualifies us for soul-winning. If we are wise, we will win souls. Soul-winning is not a gift given only to the evangelists, it is actually something that everyone needs to be involved in some way, shape or form.

279

15th February 2015: We Are a Soul Winning Church - Part 2

When we are standing in The Lord and serving Him fully, we will see the most power, the most blessing, the most prosperity and the best outcomes. It is when we believe Him and His Word that we will receive the greatest amount. Unfortunately, many of us interpret what God wants through the filters of our own will.

261

22nd February 2015: We Are a Spirit-Filled Church - Part 1

Jesus said, "It’s expedient for you that I go away". Why? Because if I don’t go away the Holy Spirit will not come, but if I go I’ll send him to you. Jesus shed His blood for the forgiveness of our sin. He cried from the Cross it is finished. He has given us the keys to His Kingdom and He has poured out His Spirit on all flesh. He has finished everything he needed to do. What are we waiting for?

233

1st March 2015: We Are a Spirit-Filled Church - Part 2

The work of the Holy Spirit is to be the glue that binds the church together and makes us one. No two humans could ever agree together on everything. The only way for us to be in unity, in heartfelt dedication and commitment is to do it in and through the presence of the Holy Spirit.

261

8th March 2015: We Are a Spirit-Led Church - Part 1

If we want to be led by the Holy Spirit we must first know the Word of God because that is going to tell us how we would expect the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us everyday. The Holy Spirit wrote the Bible! So how would there ever be a discrepancy between the Word of God and the Holy Spirit? If you want to walk in the Spirit, walk in the Word of God.

236

15th March 2015: We Are a Spirit-Led Church - Part 2

The Church is not an organisation, it’s an organism. It is not a social club that get’s together once a week to discuss and make plans for the next cake stall. It is an institution that is made alive by the Holy Spirit. It is a living, breathing organism. The very representation of God living in and through each one individually and collectively as a channel of His love and power to the world.

243

22nd March 2015: Financial Security in God - Part 1

First of all, make sure you are walking according to the Word of God. If we don’t we will be swayed by the influences and coercion of the world. God speaks to us very clearly and concisely in His Word about the way we should treat our finances.

232

29th March 2015: Who is the Lord of your life? - Part 2

Is it God, or is it a God that you have created, an idol, that you have molded around your beliefs, because you have not fully agreed with what God’s Word directs concerning our living under God’s financial security.

233

5th April 2015: Resurrection Sunday - Jesus the Firstborn

Jesus said, “everyone who lives and believes in me, shall never die, though he were dead, yet shall he live. If you really want to live the abundant life that Jesus was sent to share and offer to us, then you need to believe God and His Word, stop doubting Him and believe. Then you will experience the full effect of the eternal life He offers.

241

12th April 2015: Walk in The Spirit - Part 1

Walking in the Spirit is following the leading of the Spirit. The only way to know the voice of the Spirit is to know the Word of God. We need to read the Word so we can stay free, anointed, empowered and stay with the Holy Spirit.

253

19th April 2015: Walk in The Spirit - Part 2

The beginning of walking in the Spirit is being dedicated to walking in the direction and guidance of God. We need to have our senses exercised if we are going to know the voice of the Spirit and therefore be led and guided by Him.

230

26th April 2015: Financial Security in God - Part 1

One of the hardest areas of our life to trust God is in the area of finance. Some very sobering words are recorded in Matthew 6:21 where Jesus says, “Where a man’s treasure is, there his heart will be also. Jesus had us pretty well summed up. He knows the human spirit and how attached it becomes to the things we value most. And sadly, the things we get most attached to in life more often than not is money.

241

3rd May 2015: Financial Security in God - Part 2

When we give, we have to do it willingly, as with all things concerning our relationship with God. God loves a cheerful giver. If we’re not going to give willingly and cheerfully then don’t give your money to God, because it will not be an acceptable sacrifice to Him.

236

31st May 2015: Make a Difference - Part 1

Do you want to make a difference to this generation? If you apply these truths you will indeed make a difference to this age and at this time.

225

7th June 2015: Make a Difference - Part 2

The earth belongs to The Lord. It’s His! Do we realise that as we submit to Him we come completely into line with His will and will therefore truly have dominion as He originally appointed us in the Garden of Eden.

187

14th June 2015 - Make a Difference - You are the Salt of the Earth - Part 3

You are the salt of the earth, Jesus said. This was not a statement made lightly by The Lord. Just like salt seasons our food, so we are the salt of the earth, the people who season our fellow man. Are you God’s salt, are you the seasoning that Jesus intended you to be?

235

21st June 2015 - Make a Difference - Part 4

As a Christian, God has made you an influencer. Are you spending time enough with God each day to be drawing fully on the power of the potential that lies within us and use that exclusively for God’s service in this life?

188

28th June 2015 - Make a Difference - Part 5

We are people who are expected to hear from and be directed by God. If you’ve never has a plan or purpose changed by God, then you’re not really hearing from God.

196

5th July 2105 - Walking in Your Call - Part 1

Each one of us has a calling from God. Everyone of us has a plan and purpose that is given to us by God that can only be fulfilled in partnership with God.

234

12th July 2105 - Walking in Your Call - Part 2

As you are led by the Spirit, He will teach you. Practicing walking in The Spirit is what teaches you, Hebrews 5:14 tells us we need to have our senses exercised to discern the difference between what is good and what is evil.

177

19th July 2015 - Walking in Your Call - Part 3

We live in an age where we desperately need people who will stand up morally with integrity, honesty, consistency and self-control. God is looking for people whose hearts are perfect for towards Him, not perfection in the worldly sense, but the perfection of a perfect heart attitude of humility.

217

26th July 2015 - Walking in Your Call - Part 4

The things that you love doing are the things that you’re gifted in and these gifts come from God. Therefore your passion is your purpose, it’s your God-given calling and we all need to pursue it.

185

2nd August 2015 - Influence - Part 1

If you want to be an influencer then you’ve go to look at your attitude, because it’s attitude that determines your altitude, not your aptitude.

209

9th August 2015 - Influence - Part 2

If you really want to influence people serve them. Do things for them! Compliment people in the first thirty seconds of meeting them, and not just the first time, but every time.

197

16th August 2015 - Influence - Be Empowered

Influence is not something that we force upon others, it is something that is received by people and translated spiritually. As we work on our character, our influence will increase.

249

23rd August 2015 - Connect and Make a Difference - Part 1

God has called us to service! One of the biggest deceptions on man today, is the belief that happiness comes from looking after yourself first. The reality is that nothing could be further from the truth.

230

30th August 2015 - Connect and Make a Difference - Part 2

Did you know that if you don’t see yourself as God sees you, you have a distorted view of yourself. You are missing out on fulfilling and being everything that God wants you to be.

261

6th September 2015 - Connect and Make a Difference - Making Today Count - Part 1

If you really want to connect with people, serve them. Jesus said, In as much as you’ve served the least of these my brothers and sister, you’ve done it to me.

266

13th September 2015 - Connect and Make a Difference - Making Today Count - Part 2

Desire mixed with persistence is always a winner. If you want to win with people cultivate a real desire to help them. Remember, God so loved the world that He gave His only Son. We are going to need to share that attribute in order to have any chance of influencing others.

248

20th September 2015 - Reaching Your Potential - Part 1

Christians are limitless, not because of who we are, but because of who God is. His power flowing through us certainly gives us the power and the authority to accomplish anything.
