Bible Study

Trevor led our Bible study today.

We’ve been looking at Matthew 12:1-14 for the past 2 weeks which looks at the Lord of the Sabbath and a man with a shrivelled hand being healed.

Trevor recapped on this and then we moved on to looking at Jesus healing a demon possessed man and how a city, household and kingdom can not stand if it is divided against itself.

We also discussed the “strong man” in verse 29.

We had 5 guests attend the Bible study – 4 guests who regularly attend and a guests who doesn’t come as often.

We are really enjoying going through the book of Matthew, chapter by chapter.

Bible Study

For the past two weeks Amanda-Lee and Mark have shared on Matthew 12:1-13 with  our guests, which looks at Jesus being Lord of the Sabbath and healing a man with a shrivelled hand.

There was a lot to cover and consider. We looked at the law and the Ten Commandments, along with other scriptures that covered the law and the Sabbath.

We were encouraged to know that “the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath” (verse 8), and that we are valuable to God (verse 12). It was also encouraging that people/relationships are more important to Jesus than observing the law.

Our numbers have been consistent over the last fortnight. We are always hoping and praying that our Bible Study will grow,  that more guests will come and that they will participate in the discussions.

Bible Study

This week at Bible Study we had 4 gentleman join us, 2 regular attendees, a gentleman who has joined us in the  past and a new comer.

During our time together we  looked at Mathew 11:20 – 30 which were titled “Woe on unrepentant towns” and “The Father revealed in the Son”.
The newcomer had very little sleep the night before and  fell asleep during our discussion about the text , but when he woke up he asked  a number of questions like did he need to go to Church if he was a  Christian. He also told us that he had never read the Bible before.
He was concerned about how he would be received if he attended Church. We encouraged him to come to our Tuesday evening meal (once a month) that is run at our Centre by the Globe Church. In that way he could meet some of the volunteers and then he would know people should he want to attend.
We hope he keeps coming to Bible Study, meets other Christians and connects with a local Church.

Bible Study

This week we had bible study with 7 guests, 2 of whom had little knowledge of the bible.

John the Baptist was discouraged and in prison and sent a few of his disciples to find out if Jesus was the Messiah? Jesus confirmed he was by saying, ” Go back to John and report what you hear and see” Often when trouble comes, christians can doubt and fall away. But Hebrews 10 v 35 says ” Do not throw away your confidence, it will be richly rewarded, You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will received what he has promised. Pray for the guests that come to the bible study , that they will find encouragement and faith , to go on!

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,
