David’s Faith

By Faith, Hope, Love, Market Harborough

In Luke’s account of Jesus calming a storm, Jesus asks his disciples ‘Where is your faith?, implying that the disciples had faith but it couldn’t be seen. In today’s all-age gathering we consider ways in which we can stir our own faith so that it is visible to ourselves and those around us.

I So Hope So?

By Faith, Hope, Love, Market Harborough

Hope, often gets side-lined, it’s a little ambiguous to some it is often misinterpreted as the opposite to faith, “I wasn’t in faith, or I don’t have faith for that, but I can just hope?”. Just to be clear the opposite of faith is fear. The opposite of hope is doubt and confusion – a lack of direction or focus. Hope is important! Hope is not wishing for something to happen. The Bible describes hope much differently. The world is full of people hoping:

Their children’s future
Their own futures
Will their money last?
Will they stay in health?
Will they win the lottery?

So, this morning I want to get straight into the definition and unpack hope, to see how it strengthen our lives.

Strength for Today and a Bright Hope for Tomorrow

By Market Harborough

If I asked you what you think “strength” is – what would your answer be? What do you think it means to be “strong in the Lord?”Your strength is the energy that you have, which gives you more than the ability to just perform various actions, such as lifting or moving things. But is it easy to say my strength is in God, when we are feeling weak in the mist of problems and issues?! Real strength comes from the Lord and is in the Lord. In life we don’t rely on our own strength and ability – we look to the Lord to supply His strength and attributes in our lives.

We may be in a place of fear or feel weak, but today God wants to teach us something – God wants our faith to be strong all the time! What is this secret? We all need to get into training! He wants us to be strong, full of life, living victoriously despite the challenges that we may face, that we will indeed rule and reign in life!
If desire is to seek first God’s presence and his Kingdom then Moses has some great attitudes to take on board!

Making His Presence Our Priority

By Market Harborough

Moses set an example for all believers in his attitude to the presence of God. He cared whether God was with him. He understood what God’s presence meant for himself and the Israelites and he responded to the presence of God with passion!

If desire is to seek first God’s presence and his Kingdom then Moses has some great attitudes to take on board!

A Co-Mission to the Towns and Villages

By Central, Market Harborough

The success of the early church in following the example of Jesus and spreading the gospel throughout the towns and villages was stunning! Within 20-30 years, vast geographic areas were saturated with the Good News of the Kingdom and vibrant, missional churches were planted in every place. This midweek message looks at some important aspects of the “partnership” between churches, apostles and elders (Phil 1:5,7) that made all this possible, and helps us to reflect on factors that will be key in our own co-mission to our towns and villages.

Come to Me – Pt.2

By Central, Market Harborough

In this important time of re-gathering we mustn’t forget that it’s also a vital time of in-gathering. In Part 2 of this mini-series we look at the way Jesus called His disciples to come and follow Him, so that He could transform them into “fishers of men” (Matthew 4:18-20) and we consider some of the implications for us. He calls us to come to Him as we are, where we are and with what we’ve got – so He can send us out with His invitations of rest, strength, life, courage and blessing to many others.
