Means of Grace: Created for Community | Gareth Nicholson
Means of Grace: Created for Community | Gareth Nicholson
Following Jesus is completely dependent on the grace of God. God created us for community - the place where the grace is outworked.  Our prejudices can divide us. Our Christ unites us. Our preferences can divide us. Our mission unites us. Our pasts can divide us. Our future unites us. #grace #sunday #centurion #free #freedom #church #jesus #formation #spiritual #community www.freechurch.life

Means of Grace: The Art of Life | Gareth Nicholson
Do you want a good life, or do you want to be good at life? Life is way more of an art than it is a science. It is fluid and full of flair. Jesus gives us the key to learn the art of life; something that helps us to be good at life.   #life #freedom #free #Sunday #grace #meansofgrace #centurion #freechurch  www.freechurch.life

Means of Grace: Part 1 | Gareth Nicholson
Following Jesus is completely dependent on the grace of God. We come to spiritual life by sheer grace, and it is in divine grace  that we continue on. Grace empowers us to change our core beliefes, that flow into our thoughts, that become our actions. The means of grace are the ways that God has given you to be transformed and restored into your purpose.   #grace #sunday #centurion #free #freedom #church #jesus #formation #spiritual    www.freechurch.life

Things to Come: Live with Purpose | Gareth Nicholson
Things to Come: Live with Purpose | Gareth Nicholson
God has a will for the life of each believer, for you. A purpose. What is blocking you from your full potential?  Have you Lost your identity and forgotten who God has called you to be? Have you lost your view of who God is? You are created with an incredible ability to dream, to create, to imagine, to make a difference, to live with meaning. And the process to figured out your purpose begins with a revelation of God, a recognition of your sin, and a reception of his grace. www.freechurch.life

Things to Come: Connect the Dots | Gareth Nicholson
Things to Come: Connect the Dots | Gareth Nicholson
To connect the dots, you need a page, a pattern and a pen. The page is your position, the pattern is what God is up to, and the pen-stroke is your response. When we connect the dots, we start to see a picture that is symbolic of things to come! Connecting the dots gives you clarity, courage and confidence. What are the dots you should connect? www.freechurch.life

Things to Come: Regain Your Edge | Gareth Nicholson
Will we be a mediocre society that hangs out now and again to give Jesus a bit of a shoutout, or will we be a movement that dares to change the world?

Battles & Bridges : Rejection
Battles & Bridges : Rejection
Nothing ravages a heart like rejection. Has someone dear to you walked out of your life, leaving you in the ditch of despair, feeling devalued? Were you told, “You should never have been born. You were never wanted. You will never amount to anything”? When you feel painfully rejected by a special person, take comfort in these tender words: “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (PSALM 34:18). At times you will be rejected, but that doesn’t make you a reject. You have a God-given purpose.

Battles & Bridges: Escaping the IG Trap
Battles & Bridges: Escaping the IG Trap
Instant Gratification is the the self sabotaging the tendency to give in to temptation of avoiding short-term pain, to indulge in fleeting pleasures, even though you know your choice will ultimately hurt you in the long run. High-stress environments and an instant gratification culture fuel addictive behavior. Hence, the Instant Gratification Trap. There is another, better way. Escaping the trap requires a revelation of God’s calling, inheritance and power, and an understanding of what it is that you really want.   Battle Plan: https://www.freechurch.life/post/batt...

Battles & Bridges: Fighting for Self-Worth
Self-worth is the measure, a core belief really, that you hold of your true value. As such, it has a profound impact on all aspects of your life. The world system, domain of darkness and fleshy nature tell one story that leaves many of us with low self worth The Bible teaches something different: True Self-worth Comes From God, it comes with a purpose, and it comes at a price. Let’s walk across the bridge to healthier self-worth. Here is your battle plan: https://www.freechurch.life/post/battle-plan-self-worth

Battles & Bridges: Overcomming Anxiety
Battles & Bridges: Overcomming Anxiety
Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome.  It, like fear, is a natural emotion designed by God. However, living with constant anxiety or with a spirit of fear is not from God, and it robs you of freedom and purpose. It’s time to overcome anxiety!

#TOV - #outoftheordinary
The narrative of the Bible is one of good to good, with mans rebellion and God’s plan of redemption in between. We live in midst of that. And in it, the Kingdom of God is present progressive. It’s ongoing and actively happening right now, here, but not fully realised yet. Jesus teaches how to live in this tension.  We are called to be #convenantkeepers, #truthspeakers, #peacemakers, #barrierbreakers. That is out of the ordinary! How on earth do we do that??     www.freechurch.life

A lot of what Jesus says demands reflection and radical reorganization of things in your life. He said that being angry with someone without cause carries the same consequences as murder! In Matt 5:21-26 he warns about dangerous self-righteousness that leads to death, and gives a directive: urgent humility that leads to life - being a #peacemaker Take Responsibility: Guard your heart. Watch Your Words. Make the First Move.  #peacemakers

Genesis starts on a mountain, and Revelation ends on a mountain, both with people in God’s presence. This is tov - good. There are many stories in the Bible of God meeting people on mountains. But it turns out that people are not so good at maintaining mountain moments. So Jesus comes, into our valley, and goes up the mountain of Calvary to be the human we could not be, and invites us into a new, way of life, to be tov and do tov and join in God’s tov plan - things as they should be.    www.freechurch.life

TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN: Heaven on Earth?
Christianity is not about  a moral example, nor  making sure you end up on the right side when you die, nor getting  a further revelation of God. It is about something that happened. To and through Jesus. as a result of which the world is a different place, a place where heaven and earth have been joined for ever. It’s the now, and the not yet, and Jesus invites us to be part of his Kingdom - and the way is through his finished work on the cross.   www.freechurch.life

TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN: Clash of Kingdoms
TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN: Clash of Kingdoms
Did you know the gospel was first about Augustus Caesar? And then Jesus showed up with a loaded statement: a declaration of the Kingdom of Heaven.  The Kingdom of Heaven is a major theme throughout the Bible, and it has everything to do with our lives today.   The kingdom of heaven is not a place to go to, but something that happens to you!  For Jesus to become king in our lives so unlike  anything else, it requires a lot of teaching and transformation in heart, mind and body. It means an upending of value systems, identity, and significance, allowing his love, mercy, wisdom to redefine reality. For more information, pls visit our website www.freechurch.life

Fresh Courage: SUN, STAND STILL
Fresh Courage: SUN, STAND STILL
Joshua prays a bold courageous thing - that God would literally stop the sun in the sky. He doesn't start with Dear Lord, and he doesn't end with amen. He doesn't even pray the right words scientifically. And yet, God invents the first PVR! What is your “Sun, stand still” prayer? It’s easy to believe that God would do something like that for Joshua, but would he do it for you too? It’s time to believe God for the impossible!!! More at www.freechurch.life

Here are the people of God, with a promise ahead. But there is a problem between them and the promise - the Jordan river in flood! They have the presence of God, the priests of God, and the prompting from God. When Joshua responds in perfect faith, the people follow in obedience, and  the power of God is released to remove the problem, so that the people can walk through into the promise. And, it's for a purpose. More at freechurch.life
