Part 7. Theft isn’t something that’s just done by robbers at midnight, sneaking into your neighbours house. More often than not it’s ‘white collar crime’: tax avoidance, inflated costs, stealing from work, sick days and clocking off early.
Part 3. Names are important, because names stand for something. There’s power in a name. In the beginning, Adam got to name all the animals and creatures God had created. But he didn’t get to name God himself. Instead, God simply introduces himself: “I AM WHO I AM”.
Part 8. If we accept Jesus, we are welcomed and adopted into God’s family as sons and daughters. We become heirs with an incredible inheritance. Why then would we go back and give our lives to the worthless things of this world?
Part 3. Transformation occurs in all of us. Sometimes it’s an immediate and overnight change, and at other times it’s much more gradual.
Part 1 of our three week family friendly mini-series. God is always speaking. Are we listening? Often it’s simple and direct, but sometimes God uses the unexpected things.
Deliverance: part 2. With Jesus there is deliverance, there is rescue, there is salvation. We are delivered from one identity into another. When we are part of God’s kingdom we can expect to be changed into the likeness of Christ.
Jesus transforms lives. We never stay the same when we choose to follow him. The gospel isn’t just good news for an exclusive group. It’s a message of new life for all who would believe.
Faith, favour, inclusion and blessing occurs not because of our best efforts but because of his kindness. Where the world would tell us to work hard and earn our rewards, grace doesn’t wait for us to get our life together.
“Everything we need to reach the city is already in the house”. We need a radical heart of generosity, with every member of Kings playing their part in God’s big story.
