Acts 1-2We don't need to wonder what the church would have looked like without the coming of the Holy Spirit. We just need to look at the Old Testament nation of Israel - failure, after failure. However, following the obedience of Jesus, and His pouring out the Spirit on "all flesh", the church is endowed with the ability to live in Christ, experie…
 
1 Corinthians 15:1-8Let's talk about some "good news", shall we? Jesus doesn’t go the cross because he is a victim of fate. He does not go to the cross as an abstract lesson. He does not go to the cross as a mere example (though he is an example). He has a purpose in going to the cross. It is to save people from condemnation that is already hanging…
 
Matthew 25:14-30What is the posture of the watch? Is it not vigilance? Do they not make inquiry into that which seems suspicious? The metaphor of a steward of an estate (treat one another well!), and young women waiting with the bride for her groom (plan ahead, be ready), servants entrusted with gold (invest your resources effectively), begin to co…
 
Matthew 24:15-28; Mark 13:14-15; Luke 21:20-24 and Daniel 9:27Jesus regularly quotes or alludes to passages in the OT. While He often cleared up misunderstandings, He was also affirming its continued value and authority as God word /revelation from God. Here, we begin to see that biblical prophesy has a way of, multiple fulfillments in history, tod…
 
Philippians 4:2-9…D.A. Carson writes “Never give up the Christian walk”. Perhaps he had Sir Winston Churchill’s immortal words in mind? Paul speaks candidly to very real conflicts within the Philippian church. As we seek to acquire joy, we must hear him, and continue to walk, live and relate to one another in manners that are different from the wor…
 
Philippians 3:1-16”Rejoice in the Lord!” (3:1)“Press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (3:12) Between these inspiring statements, the Apostle Paul offers some really valuable warnings and encouragements for our spiritual faithfulness and growth. In a world where goal setting and vision cast…
 
Philippians 1:12-26There is more going on than meets the eye! And we are being invited to look beneath the surface, and even it we don’t see it, we’re called to trust that God is doing a great work! Am I willing to believe that, however difficult 2020 was, that God is doing a good work in, through and around me?Preacher: Elder Kevin McCubbin…
 
Philippians 1:1-11God begins great things and He completes them (1:6)! A church plant (like Philippi), a renovation (like OAC)… most profoundly, the work of grace that He’s doing in you & in us. This proceeds as we abound in love, knowledge and insight, and is lived out in a joyful, Spirit-filled life (1:9-11).Am I willing to trust that whatever go…
 
The legend of Santa Clause may be based on the wealthy Saint Nicholas, who gifted portions of his wealth to needy families in his kingdom, in celebration of Christmas. The folklore has evolved into fantasy, and many would say distraction. One of the knotty problems is that this legend suggests that we receive gifts based on merit …”if you are good …
 
Luke 1:11-13, 28-30God’s intent and design is that family should be an extraordinary blessing to each of us. However, in a sin-fallen world, that is not necessarily the case. Some vilify family, because of their pain. Others idolize family, and turn it into something it is not. We’re called to embrace family as a safe place where God will begin to …
 
The Book of Revelations Many look to this final book, penned by the Apostle John, for answers pertaining to final things. But, it firstly speaks to God’s presence “with us” during these present things. The bible is very honest and real about pain and suffering. And this book brings comfort to those heavily persecuted, as well as we, who live in rel…
 
The Book of ActsIn his Gospel, Dr. Luke promised “an orderly account …so you may be certain” (Luke 1:1-3), and in Volume 2, The Acts of the Apostles, Dr. Luke brings us 'everything Jesus continues to do' (Acts 1:1) through His church. We’re going to look at the work of the Apostle Peter, and review how the church began. Then we will look at how it …
 
The Major & Minor ProphetsProphets Isaiah & Jeremiah speaking to earlier audiences, who were about to be judged by God, and prophets like Daniel speaking to those who survived God’s judgment, all want to speak to us today. They speak warning, concerning the necessity of pursuing God. And they speak comfort, as Jesus became the perfect Son, who has …
 
Job, Psalms, Proverbs, EcclesiastesKing David, writer of many of the Psalms, and his son King Solomon, writer of many of the Proverbs, and historically considered to be the author of Song of Songs & Ecclesiastes, offer us great wisdom, and a sombre warning that knowledge is not enough, in itself, to keep our hearts true to God.…
 
1 Samuel 3Beginning with the leader Joshua and ending with the prophet & judge Samuel, we are invited to explore the extraordinary, patient grace of God. His disposition towards us is love, as ultimately seen in Jesus! Joshua’s famous words, “choose this day who you will serve” open this segment, and young Samuel’s obedience response, “Speak Lord, …
 
Hebrews 8:5Moses became priest, prophet and executive leader to the Hebrew people. God used him as a catalyst to engage the other leaders of the people such that they would respond when God opened the door for them to leave Egypt. And the New Testament portrays Moses as a “type” of Christ, and Jesus as the "Greater Moses”, who will lead US out of b…
 
Genesis 1-3We’re going to begin to trace the theme of Creation and Fall from Genesis through Revelation, with the intent to reckon with the desperate state of humanity, and amazing love and grace of God. What was lost was worship. In losing worship we lost relationship. What remained was love ...God’s care & concern. The invitation to “one flesh un…
 
1 Peter 2:91 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.” The people of God (baptism, the universal church, the local church), the family of God, the body of Christ, a holy temple, the bride of …
