The Power of Weakness
Judges 7

Fight For Freedom!
Judges 6
As Christians we know Jesus has set us free! Yet we all find it hard to live in that freedom day to day. Why is that? How can I break free? The story of the Israelites - and our first glimpse of Gideon - in Judges 6 provide the answers.

The Prayer of Prayers
Matthew 6:9-13
As we come to ‘the prayer that Jesus himself taught us’, we must not be over familiar or sentimental about it. This is no optional life hack to boost our prayer life. This is a model of how we can have a relationship with God, such as Jesus has. But it also challenges us to accept God’s terms. This is a prayer treasure trove, and if we let it shape and mould our lives we will be transformed, and so will the world around us.

Show me a sign!
Judges 6 & 7
Many of us have asked God for a sign before. Sometimes our requests may have been inspired by Gideon's rather novel use of a fleece! However, is that really what we learn from the story of Gideon? Jonny explains how God is actually just as eager to look for signs from us, and that whatever 'fleeces' we may construct for him, it is our obedience that is always most important in guiding our lives in the right direction.

God's Vineyard
Luke 20:9-19
It’s official. The Chief Priests and teachers of the law want to kill Jesus. He calls them out through this parable and announces that they will be deposed, He will be vindicated, and the ‘Vineyard’ of God’s kingdom blessings will be given to others. As those who are now tenants in God’s vineyard, there’s much we can learn here about how we can produce good fruit for the kingdom in our lives.

Who is you King?

Remember who you are
Luke 19:11-27
All through the gospels Jesus tells stories about the kingdom of God. One reason is because Israel are in danger of missing it and forgetting their role in God's purpose. We need to ensure we don't forget who we are and what God has called us to.
