This week we start a sermon series that will recur throughout the year entitled "On this rock.. - personal reflections on foundational texts". Each sermon will be on a text, biblical character, or theme that has been particularly foundational for the preacher. The title is taken from Matthew 7 where Jesus says that "Anyone who hears his words and listens to them is like a wise person who built their house on a rock." This week, newly appointed associate pastor, Matt Willis reflects on what he has learned from Abraham about the promises of God.
We should expect to wait for the extraordinary promises of God to be fulfilled. I hope you have been encouraged to allow the promises of God to fill your heart, fire your imagination, and drive your actions as you journey with Him on the great road trip of faith.
Do you have one or two people in your life who can help you check your blind spots? These people are a gift to us to faithfully follow Jesus. Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Don't forget that you can find our discipleship menu for this series on our website under the Next Steps tab and growing, join us as we seek to follow Jesus together.
Is there someone you know who really needs to hear this message? Why not share it with them and see what God does through it.
