A case for the kingdom

24 May 2020 Video Sermon GMC Wikus Smit The Kingdom of God We’ve been looking at the old testament and understanding the old testament, because without it, we miss out on so much of the character of God which is revealed in it.  Many people dismiss the Old Testament, but it helps us to understand our God and our faith so much better.  An easy example of this is the concept of the Kingdom of God. We’ve looked at the…

Judas’ betrayal and Peter’s denial foretold by Jesus

Judas’s betrayal and Peter’s denial foretold by Jesus Today I’ll be talking about Judas and Peter, and how their stories differ from each other, why their stories differ, and what we can learn from that.  Let me pray and then I’ll read from John 13:21-38. There’s a beautiful part there in the middle about the new commandment, but I’m going to be focusing on the first bit and the last bit. So in this, Jesus predicts Judas’ betrayal and Peter’s…

Jesus predicts his own death

Jesus predicts his death Wikus John 12:20-36 It’s Tuesday of Holy Week, and this is my favourite day. I mean Friday and Sunday are obviously the best, but I love the Tuesday of Holy Week.  We’ve just had the triumphal entry, palm Sunday, and the people were cheering for Jesus, they were overjoyed that he was there, and then five days later, on Good Friday, they’re baying for his blood. They want him dead, they rather release Barabbas, a murderer,…

Living your best life – Ephesians 6 Part 1

Ephesians 6:1-9 10 AM Harmony Wikus Smit 15 September 2019 Ephesians is basically a book about doctrine and duty.  What we believe in the first half, and then what we should do about it in the second.  Last week Peter spoke about the whole ‘wives submit to your husbands, husbands love your wives’ thing.  And when he started speaking, you could almost feel everyone tense up.  But what he spoke about was partnership, and walking alongside each other, working towards…

God with us – Freedom

Freedom 28 April 2019 10AM Wikus Smit   Read Galatians 5:1-14   From what have we been set free? 3 things- sin and slavery and death. They go together.  Mankind was a slave to sin, and sin made mankind a slave to the Law, the wages of sin are death and I think we can all agree that slavery is not life. The Law of the Old Testament, in particular the covenant laws and practices, and the sacrificial system.  In…

God with us – us with God

Guest Preacher Wikus Smit God with us In Prophetic Word Daniel 2 It’s a very interesting book, 12 chapters; it has some of the most studied and best-known passages in the whole Bible, like Daniel in the Lion’s den, like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, in the fiery furnace.  And even the story about Daniel’s fast, where he challenged the other trainee servants by only eating vegetables and drinking water while they ate fancy food and wine, and then he came…

Soul Stories – the new law

Soul Stories Wikus Smit 16 September 2018 8AM The New Law Psalm 19 Matthew 5:17-48 1) Introduction The series we’ve been following is called Soul Stories, and when Reverend Peter explained it to me, he said that it was about personal revelation.  He asked me to speak about an “Aha!” moment that I’ve had: a mind-shift, or a moment when something just clicked into place.  I wrestled for long with this, trying to figure out what my soul story is.…
