Get Ready To Suffer (And Be Very Glad!)
1 Peter 3:8-18, 4:1-4, 12-19
The idea of suffering for our faith is something that in the present climate seems to be becoming a more immediate possibility. The same was true of the first readers of 1 Peter, and Peter’s advice to them is incredibly relevant to us today, especially the seemingly strange exhortation- to ‘be very glad’.

Shining For Jesus By Submitting For Jesus
1 Peter 2:13-3:7
This passage of the Bible *SEEMS* to support slavery, the patriarchy and passivity in the face of corrupt rulers. How can this be good news for us today? Jonathan unpacks Peter's thinking, showing some crucial context and encouraging each of us to Christlikeness in the face of opposition.

1 Peter 5:1-4
In these times, our culture is desperately cynical about leadership, and for good reason. Yet somewhere deep down, we also seem to be aching for something better, for good leadership. At Churchcentral ONE, Jonathan unpacked to us our leadership options - the culture, religion, ourselves, or Jesus.

What Should We Do With Samson?
Judges 13
2017 has been a year of discredited heroes. Harvey Weinstein. Kevin Spacey. Robinho. Samson seems like an ancient equivalent- his achievements cancelled out by some serious moral flaws. If there was a statue of Samson in your city, would you campaign to have it torn down? If not, what can we learn from such a compromised hero?

How To Avoid Infighting
Judges 9
In the story of Abimelech, we see a new enemy arise to challenge Israel. That enemy is Israel! By the end of Judges, infighting will have done much more damage to the people of God than external oppressors. How can we make sure that we avoid repeating this scenario in the church today?

Why Do We Need A Rescuer?
Judges 3:7-11
The first judge of ‘The Judges’ is Othniel. In this short synopsis of his career, we see a template of all that is to come, but also we are confronted with a story of sin, slavery and deliverance that summarises the universal Christian message, and a picture of what ‘sin’ actually is that shows why God thinks it is such a big deal.

Lest We Forget
Judges 1-2
