Description

Bible Teaching from Justin Tamlin
Psalm 131
1. Embrace your limits (v.1)
2. Embrace your God (v.2)



Description

During these challenging times where there is a lot of a bad and troubling news bombarding us every day… police brutality, racial injustice, pandemic, economic depression, political instability – it’s enough to overwhelm us. In this context it is helpful to grasp the biblical practice of lament – were we can mourn and even complain before God about the loss of good things and at all the injustices in our world.

In this sermon, Pastor Richard encourages us to enter into all these experiences through honest lamenting before God.

Description

This week we explore Matthew 9:35-38 and see the Lord’s heart for the lost and broken around him. Jesus call’s us to follow him, to have a real burden for the lost for once we were lost ourselves. We look to The Lord of the harvest as we intentionally pray and work in the harvest field.

Ryan Jones is a member of staff at Rosebank Union Church on our media and communications team. He is currently studying theology and is passionate about church planting.

2 Timothy 4:1-5
In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge:

1. Minister Relationally (Rom 12:15) – be with people – you have chosen to wrap up your life in the lives of others
2. Minister Faithfully (Gal 6:9) – invest in what you can’t immediately see – invest in eternity
3. Minister Authentically (1 Tim 4:16) – be an authentic example – watch your life & doctrine
4. Minister Truthfully (2 Tim 4:2-4) – speak the truth even when it’s unpopular – speak prophetically
5. Minister Strategically (Eph 4:11) – focus your energy on equipping – set boundaries so you don’t neglect what is important
6. Minister Sacrificially (Eph 6:7) – go beyond what is expected – people won’t see most of what you give yourself to
7. Minister Devotionally (Phil 3:10) – put God above even ministry – don’t find your identity in what you do for God



Description

Why do we do what we do? Pastor Justin reminds us of the beautiful ordinance of water baptism and encourages us to not just go through the motions and routines of tradition. But look at the beautiful symbolism portrayed in light of Jesus example and commandment.



Description

God Alone is worthy of the affections of our hearts. What a deeply convicting and encouraging word from Psalm 16 given by Pastor Dave Myburgh. All the promises of God are yes and Amen through Jesus Christ our Lord. Nothing in this world will ever satisfy, only He alone can fill that void. If you are in Christ you have already been given the greatest treasure in all of existence, being reconciled to God. Let us not worship the gifts but rather the gift giver for our treasure is Him and Him alone.



Description

Brett France takes us through Ephesians 2:1-10 in this stand alone message entitled, But God. We are given such a humbling reminder that, But for the Grace of God, we would still be found wanting. The work is finished, Christ completed it all on the cross of calvary and the gift of salvation has been extended to you and I. This gift is free but it was anything but cheap, Christ paid it all.
