Not Just Input
We can sit and receive, listen, hear, absorb and take in as much information as we like ... but unless we process it and then convert that to an output then all the inputs are irrelevant. Knowing God's Word, His promises, how to pray and how to worship are great inputs, but unless they result in something then they are meaningless.
The Israel community were largely an agricultural society throughout the Old and New Testament, which is why there are so many verses relating to farming; sowing, pruning, harvesting. This week we apply this thinking to our own Christian walk - which season are we in?
Where's Your Nose
Ok, I suffer from Baby-itis ... the inability to act like an adult when I'm around small children. I feel compelled to pull a funny face, make funny noises, seek to elicit a laugh, a moment of joy. This is ok while dealing with a young child - but it wouldn't translate well if it were continued in a shopping queue with adults. Just as we age physically, so too are we called to mature spiritually. Join us this week for our chat on Spiritual maturity.
One for One
This week Hillslife Church welcome Pete Sumskas to bring the Word. Many churches talk about outreach, evangelism, growth programs, but are we missing the point? Is it about growing churches? Growing congregations? Or are we called to something more? Something deeper? Listen in as Pete explores loving others.
The Good News
There is a language in the world, an undertone, that resonates constantly in our mind ... you are not enough, not good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough, not rich enough. This barrage is the language of the world. But walk in the world or walk in the Word? The Word has a different promise, a different language, the Word offers Good News! Listen in to this week's podcast from Hillslife Church.
Facing a challenge? A trial? A storm? It is during this time we best witness our foundations ... whether they are built on rock or on sand. Like the wise and foolish builders - are we preparing daily for the storms of life? For they will come. This week, we talk about solid rock ... the faith built on the foundations of rock.
The Right Foundation
Are you walking in the world? Or walking in the Word? That is the challenge today. Paying attention to our infrastructure more than our facade. We spend way too much time worrying about appearance, but not about the spiritual poverty we and those around us endure.
Wall of Faith
This week we dive deeper into our questions of faith, whether God exists, why is there good and bad, and where are we headed? To defend the faith requires equipping, and this week we seek to equip with a helicopter view at some of the major arguments that affirm the existence of God, of moral law and of our destiny. Join us as we uncover the Faith Wall.
Is There a God?
We all have questions, questions of faith, of purpose, meaning, about prayer. Is the bible true? Factual? Do dogs go to heaven? Is there a heaven? A hell? So many questions. This week we start exploring these and begin our discovery to God's answers to these and more. Join us on the journey to truth.
What is your Status?
When it comes to love there is a giant chasm between the way the world portrays and the way God portrays. Hollywood offers the best glimpse into love from a worldly view, it's fast, frantic and ever changing. But that's not God - He is constant and committed. Join us for the series launch on relationships.
