Sermons about Creation
Studying what it means to call God, Creator of heaven and earth.
Continuing to study the Apostles Creed, this sermon looks at the various titles given to God, as almighty, as creator and as father.
Is false teaching getting into the church today? Yes. Through teaching such as evolution, tolerance and post modernism. In these four verses John has a request for the chosen lady. That based on truth she love. What does love look like? Love is obeying God.
“Everything has an end” Chaucer, Dickens, Riley as well as many others have offered variations on the “all good things must come to an end” sentiment. Tragedy seems to be as much a part of the human condition as life itself. From the soaring heights of last weekend’s Creation story, we find ourselves entering into seemingly irreparable brokenness. And the story continues… Innately, each of us recognizes that things are not as they should be. But do we truly see how deep the problem goes? ‘Living a better story’ means coping with the reality of the one we’ve written to this point.
Paul, Timothy and Silvanus urge the believers in Thessalonika, Greece to work for a living and to avoid those who are idle. Here Stephen traces the importance of work back to the creation of Man - we are designed for work and given a charge. Because of Adam's sin, man's work is harder than was intended, but no less important, purposeful or part of our responsibility. Stephen encourages believers to evaluate their attitudes to work to ensure they are aligned with God's thinking , and to seek out meaningful, productive work wherever we may find it, whether paid for it or not. There is joy in living out out God-given purpose.

I know of no better week to go back to the beginning and talk about the beginning of all things: creation. Perhaps you know the story, perhaps you don’t. It’s okay either way. The important question is not the what, it’s the why? WHY is there something rather than nothing?? As C.S. Lewis said, “Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy.”
Are you a new creation in Christ, or is your old man still in control of your life?
