Just as physical fruit originates from work and effort over a period of time, so the Fruit of the Spirit do too. Maturity takes time and doesn't just happen. We need God's supernatural help to meet peoples' real needs and we certainly need to do it in God's way and at His time. Let's plan to be kind beyond the bullseye - being known by our actions …
 
Everyone in the world goes through heartache, failure and disappointment at different times in their life . As Christians we know that God is with us. Often we will find that He gives us supernatural peace in those difficult situations. Peace is really knowing that God has tied all the pieces of your life together. Our futures are in God's hands. H…
 
We are reminded that as God continues to show His love towards us, then we can grow in maturity at displaying the Fruit of the Spirit, but we need to intentionally want to grow in them too. There are various circumstances where it is easy to be joyful. The Bible describes many people who were aware that even though life was sometimes tough for them…
 
As we sow, tend, cultivate and then harvest physical crops, so work and determination is needed to grow in the Fruit of the Spirit too, but that is what we're called to do. Displaying the Fruit of the Spirit can sometimes be difficult but it is always worth it. It may not be our first choice to always show God's love to others, but it is a neccesit…
 
The origins of this Festival lie in a brave group of Jews who fought against a large Greek army over a long period. We read in the Book of 1 Maccabees, in the Apocrypha, that the Temple had been desecrated by the actions of the foreign invaders. The faithful people of God took time to cleanse and rededicate the Temple of God. We too are called to d…
 
The Day of Atonement was totally necessary. It would be of no benefit to celebrate the other Festivals if God hadn't allowed for people to come to Him. God desires that we be holy. Whilst Jewish traditions would tell us that being holy is not contagious and is difficult to attain, God has made a plan for us to be like Him. Let's ask Jesus to open o…
 
This Feast remembers and celebrates how God looked after the Israelites as they made their way out of slavery in Egypt and around the wilderness, towards their Promised Land. They had to travel light, but God provided for them. Do we trust God as part of our lifestyle? He loves us. We can be totally dependent on Him and abandoned to Him. A video wa…
 
Where is Jesus? Often in the Gospels, Jesus isn't where you would expect Him to be. Why was this? Every good Jew would Jew would be in Jerusalem for the Passover and we find Jesus there as He prepares to be crucified. Where do you stand with Jesus? Are you willing to carry your cross as you follow Jesus? As part of our Service today, we listened to…
 
God is awesome and brilliant. He is phenomenal! It is fitting and right to remember what He has done in our lives and then to celebrate with zeal. He called the Israelites to do this formally in a series of regular Festivals and many Psalms recount what He has done in the life of the psalmist. God created the earth and heavens in six days and then …
 
In Numbers 13, the Israelites had a past (slavery in Egypt), a present (the wilderness) and a future (the Promised Land). They had to actively move from the present to the future. They needed to break new ground. Breaking new ground isn't always easy for us as we often prefer the comfort of the past as it is familiar. However, God wants us to move …
 
God doesn't need us but wants us to serve and worship Him. This is clearly seen in Moses' life and how he was born to named midwives, but during the reign of an unnamed Pharaoh. Moses truly became who he was meant to be as he followed God's commands. What is currently opposing us as we desire to follow God with all of hearts, mind and strength. God…
 
God is calling us to love Him sincerely and with gusto, but also to make it a habit to build people up and not to discourage others. This is the essence of partnership. We actively do what is right to other people, love being kind to others and live humbly, trusting God. None of us are insignificant. Our character, our abilities and gifts are all u…
 
We've learnt a lot about Jesus since the start of this Series of Talks. We also know that we need to actively and intentionally press on to knowing God more and being obedient to Him. Every tribe and nation will be represented in heaven. Heaven is very different from what we experience on earth. Everyone in the world will meet Jesus, as He will jud…
 
Nothing is too difficult for God (Jeremiah 32:17). A lady met Jesus on a very crowded road once. She had had problems with bleeding for 12 years. This caused physical problems, but it also made her ritually unclean. People would shun her and keep their distance so that they didn't become unclean too. As she reached out to Jesus and physically touch…
 
God surprised many people in the Bible. Moses was at work - looking after his goats and sheep in the wilderness. Work and wilderness. These aren't generally places where we expect to meet God, but that is exactly what happened to Moses. He was profoundly changed because of this encounter with God. How often do we put God in the routines of our day …
 
Jesus met many people while physically on earth. Luke 7:36-50 tells us an interesting story. Jesus is having a meal with a Pharisee. This man knows the Old Testament very well, being steeped in the Law and in Jewish tradition. A blatant sinner also turns up. She kneels behind Jesus and anoints Him with perfume and with tears. How do we approach Jes…
 
Sometimes we might feel that the place or situation that we're in means the end of life as we know it. Probably the two people walking to their home in Emmaus on that first Easter Day felt like this. They had invested their lives in following Jesus, but He had been crucified. They thought that their life was over. Unknown to them Jesus had risen fr…
 
Huge numbers of people met Jesus when He physically walked on the earth. People reacted in different ways to Jesus. In this Talk we hear how Jesus told Lazarus, a person He greatly loved, to "Come forth!" How did Lazarus and his siblings react to this? We can still meet Jesus today. How do you react when you encounter Jesus? Jesus came to liquidate…
 
Luke, in his Gospel, encourages us not to be like King Herod or the troubled inhabitants of Jerusalem. Act like Jesus! Our preference might be to follow a king like Herod, as no demands are being made - or so we think. However, we should follow and obey the One who suffered for us. Jesus is not selfish, but invites us to come to Him. Let's do that.…
 
Perhaps we have been desensitized about the Christmas story? The people involved found it to be an utterly incredible event! The shepherds, the angels and the wise men all did things that weren't expected of them because of it. Perhaps we should behave like Mary and treasure and ponder the different parts of the story. We shouldn't quickly move on …
 
Is celebrating only singing, or is it much more than that? How do you acknowledge God's grace and love in your life? Why is it thought of as a Discipline - surely it's easy to do? God wants us to participate in a lively and spirited dance with Him, rather than a religious plod. Let's pray that this will be true for all of us.…
 
In any relationship there is a small list of things that we should do and somethings that we shouldn't do. We need to communicate with the other person. This means both talking and listening. This is true with God too. As our relationship with God deepens and matures so we find that that we seek God and follow Him changes. We want to sin less and p…
 
Following God necessitates effort and positive intention. We all confess things in the normal way that we live. Perhaps it is "I don't understand what is going on!" It might be "I don't understand what is going on, but You are God!" It could also be, "I did this.... I was wrong. I'm sorry. Please help me now God." King David confessed to sin in 2 S…
 
Being spiritually fit is very important for all of us and this takes discipline and action. How do you serve God and others? Do people see what you're doing as you serve them or is it quite hidden? Do you actively seek to bear the burdens of others? As we consider Jesus washing the feet of His disciples, so we must seek to serve others ourselves to…
 
What are the Spiritual Disciplines and how do they help us to become spiritually fit? As well as hearing two short Talks on this, Colonel Frank HW Miller also talks about the importance of getting going (a video of this segment is on YouTube) and Nik briefly explains some of the changes that are coming to NCF's structure over the next few months. E…
 
Listen to the whole Service from 26th September. Sung worship, a time of prayer, a Bible-reading and two short Talks are the components you'll hear. Paul was in prison when he wrote a letter to the Church at Colossae in around 60AD. He encouraged the believers there to kneel down, speak up, keep things in and to let God out. God is encouraging us t…
 
Listen to the whole Service from 12th September. Sung worship, a time of prayer, a Bible-reading and a Talk are the components you'll hear. God is looking after us in His great providence. Sometimes there is a conflict between logic and faith, but we need to remember that we are not alone. We hear about the influence of Greek thinking on the spread…
 
Listen to the whole Service from 5th September. Sung worship, a time of prayer, a Bible-reading and two short Talks are the components you'll hear. God has lavished His extraordinary love on us. We were doomed to eternal separation from God, but God reconciled us to Himself. Fantastic! How do we respond to that? It is fitting to totally surrender t…
 
Listen to the whole Service from 29th August. Sung worship, a time of prayer, a Bible-reading and two short Talks are the components you'll hear. For our last Talk on Elijah we are are reminded that God is in control whether we clearly see that or not. He is sovereign. There is so much mystery regarding God, but that is fine. We trust Him. He is fa…
