We live in a context in which Christianity is no longer the dominant religion. This can pose all sorts of challenges and pressures as we seek to follow Jesus. In this series, we consider what the Bible teaches about living as a faithful presence: a community of people who follow Jesus wholeheartedly, and seek to represent him well to a world that has largely forgotten him.
Living like Jesus in a Broken World
What does it look like to live as a Creative Minority? And what should our posture be as we seek to follow Jesus in a post-Christian age? In the first talk of our new series, Andy Tilsley looks at the story of Daniel.
Daniel and his friends get taken into the courts of the King. In this talk, David Stroud considers how believers should conduct ourselves, so that God can position us to be a positive influence on the fate of a nation.
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego are faced with a dangerous threat, and a temptation to abandon their God. In this talk from Daniel chapter 3, Jo Wells considers how we can remain faithful to God, and trust His protection when things get difficult.
How should we conduct ourselves in the face of threats? In this talk, Liam Thatcher looks at the story of Daniel in the lion’s den, and considers how God can fill us with courage in our moments of pressure.
Peter writes to followers who are scattered across the ancient world, and he exhorts them to live as a Kingdom of Priests. In this talk Hannah considers what that dual role means for us today.
Paul writes that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. But how will they hear about Him, unless we share the good news? Andy Tilsley considers what it means to live as those sent with a message.
Jesus sent out 72 of his followers, telling them that the harvest is plentiful. In this talk, Lars considers Jesus’ instructions in Luke chapter 10 about how we should live as workers for the harvest.
Jesus told his disciples that their love for one another would be a powerful witness to the world. In this talk, Tim Frisby considers how the church should live as a community rooted in love.
Everywhere he went, Jesus healed those who were sick, to demonstrate that the Kingdom of God was breaking in. In this talk, Liam considers how Jesus empowers us to heal the sick today.
Paul tells the Corinthians that our bodies are actually Temples of God’s Spirit. In the penultimate talk of our series, Joel considers how we should honour God with our bodies.
What does it look like to live for cultural, social and spiritual renewal, celebrating what God has done in the past, and longing for Him to renew His deeds in our day? David Stroud concludes our series by looking at the prayer of Habakkuk 3.
