Miracles were not unique to Jesus. In fact, there were mystics before his time, in his time, after his time, drawn from other cultures, and faith.

However, a number of lessons stand out with Jesus. For instance, miracles were acts of love and compassion. He freely offered them. He was not after gains or fame. In the synoptic gospel, he refused to demonstrate any ‘signs’ when his opponents made demands. By the way, their position was based on the signs Moses performed before the elders of Israel and Pharaoh to vindicate his Calling by Yahweh to lead his people out of Egypt.

He also warned his disciples to follow his model on many occasions, for example: ‘freely receive, freely give’. Not to ask for money or favour, but as an extension of The Father’s love and compassion, knowing that “God is not unjust to forget our labour of love”.

To this end, I will be exploring the subject of Miracles from the accounts of the Evangelists (the gospel writers), with a view to recapture it’s essence.

Join us this for Jesus’ Miracles within the series: God was in Christ.

Today @ Healingsprings fellowship

Our God is sovereign!

Not just in principle, but also in practice.
With the understanding that Free Will is a gift, a gift that can either add value to our lives and humanity at large, or diminish it. 
Today I will press on to treat the importance of quality information, advice and guidance in stirring our destiny on course with God’s plan for our lives, and the World we have been called to serve. 
Over the course of my talk, I will be examining Prov. 11:14 & 15:22; using 1 Kings 22:1-40 as our Case Study.
So, we continue in the strength of our theme for 2016: Our Year of Plenty (Gen 41:46-49), as we plant seeds of prayers, prophetic declaration, and thanksgiving for 2017 (Our Year of Restoration).
We march in the light of Nahum’s assertions: 
(For the Lord is restoring the majesty of Jacob, as well as the majesty of Israel, though ravagers have ravaged them and ruined their branches.) – Nahum 2:2
Join us!

Church Reloaded: Grace

By way of recap, church reloaded kicked off with a lecture on Gratitude, then we made steady progress under the subheading of Revolution, and last week we arrived at Merit or Grace; focussing on Matt. 22:1-24. 

This Sunday I will be starting a series simply entitled: Grace. 

Drawing from biblical texts, major Christian thinkers and church history; this lecture will examine themes from the following key questions:

  • What is grace?
  • Are we saved by works or grace?
  • Are we saved by works and grace?
  • Are we saved by grace alone?
  • Are some predestined to be saved?
  • Once saved, always saved?

I’m so excited about what God is doing through our Church Reloaded series, so I extend an invite to you!

This Sunday’s lecture | The parable of the talents: a lesson in praxis

Last Sunday we looked at aspects of Jesus’ life through Gramsci’s concept of the Organic Intellectual. Tomorrow we build upon that foundation, bringing it home, and reflecting on our lives as believers in the 21st century.

In 1944, while Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s was in prison by the Nazi regime, he wrote a letter a friend. In this letter he asked some profound questions with regards to the trajectory of Christianity. He presciently said:

We are moving towards a completely religionless time; people as they are now simply cannot be religious anymore. Even those who honestly describe themselves as ‘religious’ do not in the least act up to it, and so they presumably mean something quite different by ‘religious’

To this end, the following questions come to mind:
– How can we live out our faith effectively within our communities?

  • How can the church remain relevant now and in the next generation?
  • What does the parable of the talents mean to us today?

So join us tomorrow as we explore themes around these questions.

This Sunday’s Public lecture: Five principles for victorious living!

‘Beginnings are usually scary and endings are usually sad, but it’s everything in between that makes it all worth living.’ – Sandra Bullock in Hope Floats

Now that the excitement of Christmas and New Year have disappeared, and reality has kicked-in, this statement provides a backdrop for my lecture this Sunday entitled: Five Principles for Victorious Living. 

So in line with our theme for 2015 (Joy and Glory), I will be exploring some simple and effective actions that will enable us actualise our dreams and aspirations for the year.

Join us at 6pm: Art Centre, Drama Room, Bexleyheath Academy, Bexley

God bless!

In the words of Austin Gentry,

Knowing God as a trustworthy and able captain is the ultimate compass in the storms of uncertainty.

Today at Healingsprings fellowship!

Our Big Sunday Celebration can be best described as a community Christian festival. So in the spirit of thanksgiving, together we: sing, pray, give, celebrate life, discuss current affairs, present thoughts from Biblical themes, and encourage one another; like one big family!

Paul, a Jew and follower of Christ; made a profound statement not long after the death of Christ, in his second letter to the Corinthians. He wrote,

This is a terrific responsibility. Is anyone competent to take it on? No—but at least we don’t take God’s Word, water it down, and then take it to the streets to sell it cheap. We stand in Christ’s presence when we speak; God looks us in the face. We get what we say straight from God and say it as honestly as we can. 2 Cor 6:17 (MSG)

With this in mind, we will be hosting Neville Southgate today. He will be speaking under the title, ‘No Compromise: The Truth, The Whole Truth, And Nothing But The Truth!

Neville has just arrived from East Africa, where he has been running meetings with amazing results to the glory of God!

So, why not drop-in for a life-changing experience? This 90 mins might end up being a catalyst for some awesome things.
