"In Christ, all are equal. Is that fair, God?" God's grace and forgiveness are unlimited, and are extended to everyone - even the most 'undeserving'. He doesn't abide by our rules of fairness, but looks with equal favour on everyone.

'Sorry seems to be the hardest word.' Maybe. But forgiving others also seems difficult. Our world doesn't model this well. As Christians, we have the perfect model in Jesus. He models this by his life of forgiving. In him, we can learn and grow in a life of forgiving. (Blessed are the Peacemakers part 5 of 5) (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/6w624RWCQ_0) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 15]

Passage: Matthew 7:1-5
Duration: 13 mins 42 secs
It seems so normal in our world to blame others. This often happens in conflict situations. Jesus calls us to search our own actions, words, thoughts, and hearts to see if there is a 'log in our own eye'. The Seven A's of Apologising/Confessing can help us work through conflict in a healthy way.

Passage: Romans 5:6-11
Duration: 13 mins 8 secs
We’re all made differently. Our personalities and make up are different. How do you respond to conflict? Sometimes our responses are very different. God has a way of working with conflict which he shows and gives in the life, death, and resurrection new life of Christ.

Christians are God’s new creation in Christ. God newly creates us through the forgiveness of sins won by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. How do we respond to conflict? As God’s new creation we can grow in being ambassadors of reconciliation.

We all know that 'sinking feeling' in life. Peter experiences it when he takes his focus from Jesus to his own strength and fear. But Jesus doesn't abandon Peter, nor any of us. Immediately, Jesus reaches out to save. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/EihmvC8w5jQ) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 10]

There are times in life that we feel overwhelmed, over-tired, under-prepared for difficult situations. We are like the disciples who were faced with feeding a huge crowd and who say “Lord, send them away”. Jesus wonderfully equips us with what we have as disciples, and says, “You go and feed them.” (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/SBnoykO3HDo) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 9]

A new life brings joy and expectation, even in these difficult days. The wonderful imagery of today's psalm reminds us that, even when times are hard, God's gracious love holds us. We are not alone.

Sometimes it seems that its one step forward and two steps back during this COVID-19 time of restriction. We humans know what it is to carry heavy burdens of many varieties. The apostle Paul knew the impossible burden of sin and proclaimed, “What a wretched person I am!” To people who carry burdens and who are weary comes Jesus, with an invitation to come to him to find rest and to learn from him. Jesus comes to you and me, bringing this same invitation. When we are carrying a heavy load, he says “Lean on me”.

In every generation, we need to stand strong for our faith. 490 years ago, it was lay theologians who set out the Augsburg Confession, accepted by princes gathered in the Diet of Worms. Ten years ago, it was minority Christians in Malaysia campaigning to free up shipments of Bibles in their own language. Now we need to stand against the evils of racism, and the abuse of God's Word. We must show how love comes to life. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/4v80roLQf-s) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 3]
