Scripture: James 1:26-27 & 22 Observation: James is making the push for whole life impacting faith. he is saying, ‘Quit wasting time in religious activity and start getting real with a faith that will change your life and impact those around you.’ James 3:10 ‘Out of the same mouth come blessing/praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be/this is not right!’ The whole point of spiritual discipline/religious activity, is

Public Blood Bath – Pastor Anthony –

Scripture: Hebrews 13:11-13 Observation/application: The author was writing within the context of a people who were born in Law and where the ‘temple’ was the central physical place of worship – the synagogue being the local place. It was time to leave the familiarities of Judaism and leave it’s place of worship. This was sure to result in rejection as lots of pride must be swallowed in making the statement

Embalmed and Guilt Free – Pastor Anthony –

Scripture: Hebrews 10:2-7 Observation: If a sacrifice or sin offering actually had the ability to “perfect” us, repeated offerings wouldn’t be required – If that could happen people would not return to worship in guilt with offerings, but they would be guilt free and never again approach God with sin offerings. BUT Christ did! But He – as high priest, did not offer the blood of bulls and goats; but

Sing AND Praise – Pastor Anthony

2 Chronicles 20:21-22 “After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever.” 22 As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were

The Bridle of Revelation – Pastor Anthony

Scripture: Proverbs 29:18 ‘Where there is no revelation people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who deeds wisdom’s instruction. Observation: God’s revealed wisdom – revelation – is the vehicle through which God provides righteous leadership. His revelation is the bridle in our jaws. By wisdom, He guides us, and He stalls us. Heeding to His wisdom is hearing, ‘Whoa,’ and feeling the gentle nudge hither-to and fro. If

From the Inside out – Pastor Anthony –

Scripture: Proverbs 27:19 – ‘As water reflects the face, so ones life reflects the heart.’ Observation: My heart is the core engine that drives my life. Everything I do. Everything anyone does has it’s life root in the heart. What fills my heart, will fill my life. A broken heart is seen in a broken life, broken relationships and made clearly – externally present. Likewise a whole heart will lead

Wasted Words – Pastor Anthony –

Scripture: Proverbs 23:9, Romans 14:1,13,16,17,19,22. Observation: Our words are wasted in these arguments; even our carefully chosen ‘prudent’ word will turn to scorn. The fool is convinced otherwise. Don’t be a fool by arguing with one. Likewise the petty arguments in the church have painted the picture of a confused foolish religion. People divided over interpretations – arguing for the sake of pride and self-righteousness – rather than; in silence,
