Not for Sale (31 min)

Jonathan Procopio preaches on the story of Ahab’s violent theft of a vineyard whose owner, Naboth, said was “not for sale”. Two lessons stand out in the passage: 1.

Failure Doesn’t Need to be Final (46 min)

Ian Jackson delivers a warning about the danger of moral failure in the life of a believer. If David can fall (1 Kings 15:1-5), as he did “in the matter of Uriah the Hittite”, none of us can afford to be complacent. Ian also gives an explanation of Christ’s work as “the advocate” who works for the restoration of erring believers. (Message preached 21st April 2014)
