Michael Ross-Watson speaks at the 6pm Bracknell service about the need to bear fruit in our lives. Not just fruit but good fruit, the fruit of the Spirit of God living in us and being expressed not just on Sundays but every day as an intrinsic part of our being.
Leon Johnson: We can often wonder about what our purpose in life is. In Jesus' final 'I Am' statement He says that He is the "True Vine' and those who remain in Him will fuflil God's purposes for their lives
Sola Osinoiki takes us on a journey of looking for Jesus. Reading through John 12 he shows us that Jesus wants to reveal Himself in us. He then focuses on Jesus being the way to glory. Jesus is the only way to glory and if people are looking for Him, they should find him in us. For Christ in us is the hope of glory.
Ben Davies reminds us that Jesus is the only way to God, and urges us to keep Jesus central, in our daily lives, and not be distracted by other but lesser values. A mixture of grace and faith as always.
Ben Oliver: Throughout our "I Am" series, we are finding Jesus made the most outrageous claims about himself. This one is no exception - and we could dismiss it as crazy if it were not for the fact He backs it up by raising His friend from the dead. That gets everyone's attention! As we dig deeper into what Jesus said, we ask what might the future hold for us and how do we get a hold of this "Life" He is describing today?
Catrina Benham: Jesus the Light of the world opened a blind man’s eyes. Where are we blind, and in darkness? Let the Light of the world bring physical and spiritual healing as He shines into our dark places.
The 'I am' statements of Jesus tell us about the Saviour we serve. Jesus is the door, the threshold, the edge that He calls us to step over to be saved. But there is a second half to the promise... A stepping out, another stepping over.
