Bible Study

This week 5 guests joined us as we studied Matthew 8 v 18 -22 .

          Is there a cost of following Jesus?
The teacher of the law said  “I will follow you wherever you go”
And the other disciple said “Lord, first let me go bury my father”
Jesus said “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.”
In other words,  following Jesus is not an easy life guaranteed.
He also said, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead”
Jesus must come first in our lives.

Bible Study

We continue to study Matthew’s Gospel each Wednesday.

Last week we had 4 guests join us as we looked at the second half of The Sermon on the Mount.
The key verses we discussed was v13  + v24 – 27.
Life is about choices we can make.
Do we choose the narrow gate, which leads to life, or the wide gate which leads to destruction?
Do we choose to build the house on the rock, which will not fall, or on sand, which will come crashing down when to storm comes.
Many who come into Webber Street are damaged by life’s storms.
Pray that we can help them rebuild their lives with a sure foundation in Christ.

Bible Study

For this last weeks bible study we had 9 guests to study Matthew 5  and 6.

We discussed verse 43 “Love your enemies” and how difficult it is for a homeless person when they are attacked without provocation..
We can only pray for God’s protection for all of His children whether housed or homeless.

Bible Study

This week we studied Matthew 4 v 1 – 11, focusing on the third temptation of Christ in the wilderness.

Three guests joined us in the study.
We discussed how people today worship idols without realising it.
The message “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near” is just as relevant today as in bible days.
We must put aside those things that stop us from worshipping God in our lives.
Pray that our guests who believe in Jesus can move forward in their relationship with God.
Becoming part of a local church can make a big difference and yet few of them have found a church that they are comfortable in,

Bible Study

This week we began to study Matthews Gospel with 5 of our guests.

Genealogies can seem uninteresting at first, however Matthew begins with the lineage of Jesus to show God’s grace goes right back to Abraham.

With this wonderful hind sight we can all be encouraged when we see how God used Abraham, David and Rahab as flawed people, to fulfil His purposes, it encourages us who are also flawed by sin.

We have invited 2 guests to attend a Christianity Explored course at All Souls Church in February.
Pray that they will go and learn more about Jesus, who can give us a fresh start.

Bible Study

This week we had 5 guests studying and discussing John 18 & 19.
We discussed the question “What is truth?” which is so hard to find in todays world.
If we cant trust politicians to tell the truth who can we trust?
Only Jesus tells us complete truth and this truth is in His word.

Pray for guests who have been let down by the systems politicians have set up which have made life difficult for them.

We can trust Jesus always!

Bible Study

We were joined by 5 guests this week around the Word of God.

We studied John 16 v 17 – 34 and discussed how the disciples must have felt as Jesus explained
that “in a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me, because I am going to the Father”

After discussing further with the disciples Jesus exclaimed “You believe at last!
Sometimes we just have to trust and believe in Jesus, even though the circumstances make us fearful.
Remember Jesus words in verse 33, “But take heart! I have overcome the world”.
