Scripture covers a lot of topics, marriage, poverty, religion, money and so the list goes on. Despite the range of issues scripture can be boiled down into two areas. The scriptures principally teach what man is to believe concerning God and what duty God requires of man. Scripture teaches us what we’re to believe and how we should respond, or how we should live because of what scripture tells us to believe.
Paul centres his argument that salvation is based entirely on what God has done and not on what we have done by highlighting the role each part of the trinity, God the Father; Son; Holy Spirit, plays in our salvation.
This morning's service continues are series asking some of the questions people have about God. This morning we ask do all religions lead to God? We will read John 14:1-6 as we try to answer this, showing why it is important for us that Jesus is only way, the truth and the life.
Folks, where do we find meaning? There has been a lot of talk this week about exam results. Young people not getting the results they expected, worrying they won’t have the future they hoped for. Do we place to much meaning in exams? Do we try to find meaning in the freedoms we fight for? Freedom to march; to marry; live as we want. What have these freedoms cost us? Do these freedoms help us to find meaning in life? Jesus said he is the vine. Apart from him we can do nothing. (John 15:5) The only place we can find meaning for life is in Jesus Christ, everything else is ultimately useless, fit for burning.
