Luke 4: 1-13.  We have now reached the season of Lent. But what is lent? What are we supposed to do? Are we doing it right? This Sunday we will look into what Lent is and what we should be doing. Join me in discovering for the first time or maybe rediscovering the real reason for lent and how we can apply it to our lives in a way that will honour God and all the wonderful gifts he has given us.

DVD of the Week: 

The New Testament – Philippians to Hebrews.  Seven-minute videos giving an overview of the particular book.  Philippians: Paul thanks the Philippian Christians for their generosity and shares how they are all called to imitate Jesus’ self-giving love.  Colossians:  Paul encourages the Colossian Christians to see Jesus as the centre of all reality, so they don’t give in to pressure from other religions. 1 Thessalonians:  Paul directs the persecuted Thessalonian Christians to hope in the future of king Jesus’ return who will make all things right. 2 Thessalonians: Paul clarified his earlier teachings about Jesus’ future return and rebukes the Christians who were disrupting the community. 1 Timothy:  Paul shows Timothy how to restore order and purpose to the church in Ephesus which has been disrupted by false teachers. 2 Timothy:  Paul is near execution and offers a personal challenge to Timothy to keeping following Jesus no matter the sacrifice and risk.  Titus:  Paul commissions Titus to show how the good news of Jesus and the power of the Spirit can transform Cretan culture from within. Philemon:  Paul helps his friend Philemon to reconcile with his escaped former slave Onesimus and shows that they are equals because of Jesus. Hebrews:  The author shows how Jesus is the ultimate revelation of God’s love and mercy and is worthy of our devotion.
