Fear Not
Christians Against Poverty, Malvern

Leston Blackburn, June 2nd

Chris Mesley, June 9th

The unfolding ministry of the Holy Spirit begins with a period of waiting. Waiting in this instance was clearly part and parcel of the will of God. Waiting is not wasting. Waiting does not mean we are out of God’s will. IN fact, it seems, more often than not, that God builds waiting into His will. Jesus waited until the age of  30 to begin His ministry. Moses waited until the age of 80 to begin his. Joseph waited until Pharaoh’s dream. David waited years until Saul had died before occupying the throne of Israel, even though Samuel had already declared and anointed him king in Saul’s place. In a sense, we shouldn’t be surprised by this. After all, the fruit of the Spirit includes patience. Waiting has its purpose.

One Greater than Solomon
The Power and Priority of Grace

David Gleaves, June 16th

Leston Blackburn, June 23rd

The story of Mephibosheth is the story of grace in action. If you wanted an example both of the power and the priority of grace, you need look no further than the life of a man called Mephibosheth. But to set the stage so to speak, let us take a moment to visit his life story so that we can better understand how the impact of the King’s grace can change the lives even of the most broken and powerless of people. What marked Mephibosheth as a set-apart child of a king of grace was not merely the grace that was extended to him, but the grace that would be  extended through him  to others!
Comparing Solomon to Jesus, David takes a look at how the wisdom of Christ superceded the wisdom even of Solomon. David draws some very insightful comparisons, juxtaposing the rule and reign of Solomon to the life and ministry of Jesus.  He shows how Jesus, unlike Solomon, was able to do the big things right precisely because He always did the small things right too.  Consistency in all things is the way of wisdom.
Bitter Roots

Leston Blackburn, June 30th

The author of Hebrews introduces us to a very important truth about the potential impact that bitterness can have on our lives. He points out that it can become a root that literally poisons and defiles the tree, robbing it, in a sense, of the potential to become what it was created to be. Interestingly, this is something that has been substantiated in the modern world of psychology and psychotherapy. Join us as we explore how bitterness impacted the life of a man named Ahithophel, David's advisor, and how we can  take steps to prevent bitterness from destroying our lives.
