Streams of living water | Water, Wine and Fire – series on the Power of the Holy Spirit

Maurits Stevens, April 10, 2016

What is your first thought when I say: ‘holy Spirit!’? Is it like; ‘awesome’? Or; ‘whooopsss…scary!’. Or is it more like: ‘holy…what?’. Today I start with a new series on the holy Spirit. And for most people, the holy Spirit is often the most unknown Person within the trinity of God. In church history the holy Spirit has been called: ‘the God about whom now one writes’ [Gregory of Nazianus, 4th Century] or he is compared with ‘Cinderally, being left alone at home while her two sisters go to the ball’

Power to Forgive

Maurits Stevens, April 3, 2016

From the story in which Peter encountered the risen story I will look at ‘power to forgive’. Forgiveness as culture in God’s kingdom, as a necessity and release, restoration and reconciliation as result of forgiveness. The teaching of Jesus on forgiveness is radical and it’s certainly not easy to put into practice. It takes courage and humility. And yet it’s one of the most powerful steps we can take!

Put on the full Armor of God

I am moving in my third message on ‘God at War’. In 4 messages I look at ‘the reality of evil’ from a biblical and kingdom perspective. And by doing so, I hope and pray that it will equip and empower us to take our position as Christians, in a world that is filled with evil.

The Keys of the Kingdom

Maurits Stevens, February 21, 2016

Today I continue with our series ‘God at War’. From a biblical and Kingdom perspective I would like to look at ‘the reality of evil’. As someone said: ‘There seems to be more pain and misery, injustice and violence in this world than love, prosperity, justice and joy’ (Boyd G. God at War. Pg. 36). The earth is a battlefield, full of suffering and satanic evil. And how are we, as Christians, to respond to all that evil? That’s the fundamental question behind this series.

The man in the basket

As we celebrate St Valentine's Day, we will look at the story of Apostle Paul in Acts 9 after his encounter on the road to Damascus. We will focus on two movements in the text to draw our attention to our task as a community called out by God to demonstrate his love to the world, especially within our own communities, by applying the lessons from this unique "love" story.
