Inklings: The 5 Levels of Desire

Your inner desires are completely linked to the will of God for your future. If you delight in Him, the Bible says, He will grant you the desires of your heart. Yet you’ll never truly be able to find them or follow them if you’re driven by demand, fear and conformity. This message teaches you how to dig through your emotional layers to find the true, life guiding passions that dwell beneath.

Ricochet – Just So Happened

It ‘just so happened’ talking about how to live a life beyond coincidence, believing that as we live by a conviction that God has put us somewhere specifically, rather than we are there by coincidence, then we can live as if God is going to use us to ricochet into other peoples worlds with the gospel.

The Art of Dreaming – Ian Harding

Sometimes it can feel like “the dream” is far from our reality. But what if the dream is not a destination, or an achievement, but a person. In this message Pastor Ian pulls out some keys from the story of Zacchaeus to show us how we can truly live the dream.

Don’t Judge Me – How to Survive in a World of Name Calling

In Matthews Gospel, 8 out of around 14 parables that Jesus gave were directly to do with judgement. We never mention it for the fear of offending. However- In this age of judgementalism where isms and phobias are thrown around both as missiles of judgment and weapons of mass bullying, Jesus parables take on a new meaning.

In the Parable of the Weeds, the owner of the field told the workers to let the wheat grow with the weeds and for them to not to even attempt to do any weeding along the way. He would do that at harvest time. He would exercise final judgement, not the workers. Jesus is telling us to be counter cultural- to spend no time judging or being judgemental about others, ourselves, our society and our world. He is the only person wise enough to make the right calls and at the right time. And until He does, we are to live with eyes of faith, not the voice of accusation.

Like | How to be liked more

Unless someone likes you, they won’t get to know you. If they don’t get to know you they can’t trust you. If they don’t trust you they won’t love you. If they don’t love you they won’t be able to see what you love AND will be held back from loving what you love. Like it or not, influence begins with being liked. Jesus grew up ‘in favour with God and in favour with man’. To be liked is to be favoured. To win the favour of others is where great dreams begin. Sometimes people just won’t like you and don’t like you. Sometimes you need to make unlikeable choices. Sometimes those that liked you will unlike you because of them. Sometimes you need to lay down your life. But the rest of the time, which is most of the time, we’re build bridges of ‘Like’ over which the Ubers of grace and truth will one day zoom.
