Duration: 19 mins 50 secs
How would Jesus do as a candidate in the recent Australian elections? Not too well: as always, his policies are counter-cultural. And if we are to be his disciples, responding in his love to his call to action, then we need to be counter-cultural as well. In some senses, we need to go against the grain in ourselves, too.

Jesus speaks against the social patterns of the day, patterns which measured social exchanges in terms of how they would benefit us. These same patterns pushed out the poor and suffering, including those with disabilities. Has much changed? Can we do more to be an inclusive community, one that reaches out like Jesus to embrace all his brothers and sisters? [ Organ/Choir - Pentecost 15 ]

In our fifth in the series "Life in the Spirit", we examine one of the factors which makes the Christian church different from other human clubs and organisations. The Spirit opens up for us a real relationship with God the Father. Such a personal relationship is nothing less than new birth, such is the radical change in our nature and our identity.

Continuing our sermon series on Life in Spirit, we now examine why we seek the Spirit. Scriptures give us three good reasons. First is God himself, for his own sake. Second is for the sake of the church. And third, for the sake of the world. [ Organ/Choir - Pentecost 11 ]

Here is a survey of the Holy Spirit across the Bible. He is creative; he is personal; and being one with God, he is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. If we want more life in the Spirit, we only have to ask -- humbly, boldly, and expectantly. [ Organ/Choir - Pentecost 10 ]
