Pentecost and the Tale of Two Covenants

Comments Off on Pentecost and the Tale of Two Covenants, Uncategorized, by CGP.

 


The story of Ruth traditionally read on Pentecost unites by analogy the two great covenants of God – the national covenant between the Lord God and Israel and the everlasting covenant with God the Father. It is a story of loving loyalty and commitment to the God of Israel and the need for a redeemer.

Join us daily for a message to encourage you during this spring festival season.

HOLY DAY     Tuesday April 23

Being Holy

If we are not “Holy” we will not “see the LORD!” Being holy is an important message from God, during the days of unleavened bread – to be holy as God is holy. Sin defiles individuals and nations, but the priests of God, those who teach and encourage God’s people must value His standard of holiness, and be holy, showing respect for His name. What are those standards that God has established for His priests, those who serve Him? These lessons are vital understandings for those who are called into a New Covenant relationship with God the Father and who are destined to be a nation of priests.

Faithful Marriage in a Faithless Age

Comments Off on Faithful Marriage in a Faithless Age, Videos, by CGP.

 

The scriptures, though written millennia ago, offer us solid advice on how to face life’s challenges. Consider the wisdom that Paul offered Titus on the roles of men and women in marriage — advice that has stood the test of time. Or delve into Luke’s story of Jesus and what it means to be ‘submissive’ in our relationships.
Our world has largely forsaken the sound counsel that Paul gave to the Ephesians about husbands and wives willingly assuming and fulfilling their God-ordained roles in the family in accordance with God’s plan. But we can take up this challenge! More

Stressed — God’s Solution

Comments Off on Stressed — God’s Solution, Videos, by CGP.

 


When faced with bad news, disastrous events or condition, our fear of the uncertainties of our situation whether personal or societal, can create in us a stress response of anxiety, frustration, anger, or despair.
We may not be able to escape these situations that cause us ‘distress.’ But we have the free will to help us reframe how we view these stressors and focus on godly priorities.
Of course even medical science knows that unmitigated stress can produce hormonal changes that cause mental conditions like depression or physical conditions like high blood pressure. So to live the abundant life God intends for us, we must deal effectively with the stress in our life. More

Who Are You — What is Your Identity

Comments Off on Who Are You — What is Your Identity, Videos, by CGP.

 


Our world likes to label people in ways that cause division. Society would define you and assign you your identity according to its values.
But this is not the way God defines us! If we have come into a relationship with God we are no longer viewed according to our gender, our status in society, or our ethnic heritage. Rather we have been given a new identity as children of God. In God’s family we are all ‘one’ and not divided by our physical heritage or characteristics. For God places no value on our wealth, prowess, worldly wisdom or noble status. In fact, God makes it plain that he has chosen those the world rejects and despises. More

Avoiding the Traps of the Self-Righteous

Comments Off on Avoiding the Traps of the Self-Righteous, Videos, by CGP.

 

Our age is not unlike that of Jesus’ time and he warned us to avoid the traps of the self-righteous. The ‘Wokies’ of today, like the Pharisees of Jesus’ day, reject God’s standards in favour of their own redefining of what is right or wrong. They have taken a ‘holier-than-thou’ self-righteous approach that has abandoned the faith and morality of scripture and is intolerant of anyone who does not accept their new orthodoxy.
And yet, the scripture provides examples of Pharisees who took a stand rejecting the majority view and embracing the truth that Jesus’ taught.
How would Jesus react to the Woke leaders of western society? More

Are You Walking with God?

Comments Off on Are You Walking with God?, Videos, by CGP.

 

The bible teaches an amazing truth that the Creator, The Word, became a man and in so doing has made it possible for his followers to have a hope of eternal life with him.
Yet there are many in the world of religion that deny this basic teaching of scripture and instead , like the Pharisees of Jesus day, they have set up their own religious standards.
God on the other had has told us that he is looking for justice, loving kindness, and humility in walking with him. So what does it mean to “walk with God?” How do we walk with anyone?
The basics should be obvious. We must agree to walk to together, we must have the same destination in mind, and we must walk at the same pace being considerate of each other.
But beyond these rudimentary principles God gives us what he expects of those who walk with him. More
