Transforming our communities by the love of God

Sunday Message – 17th Feb 2013

Joeseph in his special coat

Sermon Theme: Joeseph’s Dreams
Scripture:  Genesis 37:1-11

Summary:
The character of Joseph is a fascinating one in the pages of Genesis…he becomes, in essence, the first of many saviours of the people of Israel. As we look at his life over the coming weeks, we will see how God uses Joseph to turn a bad situation good in order that God’s purposes can be achieved through Jacob’s family. In today’s message, we see how easy it is to reject vision, to reject warning, to reject blessing and the lengths God will go to in order to keep His people with Him.

For further reflection:
Do you find it easy to take advice even when it goes against the grain? Are there situations in your life where you need to hear the voice of God to keep you on track?

Sunday Message – 10th Feb 2013

Sermon Theme: Jacob’s Children
Scripture:  Genesis 29:31 – 30:24 and Luke 9:46-50

Summary:
This week Rev. Dr. Calvin Samuel takes us through the story of the birth of each of Jacob’s sons. They were sons of four mothers and born into a family rife with conflict and issues, much like the lives of some of us today. There is plenty to learn from this story, especially as we realise that not all the patriarchs in the bible are born into exemplary families with perfect and Godly parents.

For further reflection:
Listen to God and remember that God can use you just as he did these imperfect people.

Sermon Theme: Jacob’s Dream
Scripture:  Genesis 28: 10 – 22

Summary:
This week’s instalment shows us that you don’t always get what you want when you manipulate a situation. That there are occasions when you will feel more alone than ever before, but even in these shadowy times when you may be suffering the ultimate guilt trip, God comes to us.

For further reflection:
Are there any situations in your life, where regret or guilt is playing on your mind where you need the grace of God? Have the courage to bring those things before God this week.
