A Heart for Your Father



John Alley shares about coming to a place in your relationship with your spiritual father that involves the heart. Elisha commenced serving Elijah out of commitment to an idea, and then commitment to the person, but finally his heart belonged to Elijah. As Elijah was taken, his cry of "my father" showed there was a longing and desire. This longing and desire makes all the difference in spiritual relationships.

God's Timeless Love



God is an omniscient God, that is he knows all things, even things to come. This is because God is timeless, he is eternal, outside of time, but also in every moment of time, even our futures. His love for us is certain in that He is behind us, and before us, having gone ahead of us to make a way. Our duty is to keep our hearts soft before him. We still have a response to make to Him.

The Subject of Sin



David Alley begins his message with some information on the life and writings of St Augustine, author of the book “The City of God”. The city of God is not a physical place – no, the kingdom of God lives within the hearts of believers. Most people, if asked, will affirm that they are “good people”. However, the word of God teaches us that sin begins in the mind and heart. The only reason that many people do not act out of these sinful desires is a fear of the law and its consequences. But laws can only change external behaviours - they cannot change the heart of a man or woman. It is only when we allow Jesus full access to our hearts and fully submit to Him that He is able to change our hearts. St Paulinus, a contemporary of Augustine, stated that “There is nothing that can be taken from you if you have Jesus”. Clearly, we need our hearts and desires to be changed; but how do we go about this? David gives three suggestions to set the feet on the right path. These include asking God to show us the love of God and the change our hearts by the love; study of the Bible; and tithing. Each of these will help us in our endeavour to live God-focused lives.

Towards the Summit



David Hood begins by exhorting the people that there is preparation to be done in readiness for the 19th annual Summit – preparation of the heart. Belief is formed out of experiences, says David. These experiences create expectations, which in turn create behaviour. David goes on to discuss the theme for this year’s Summit: “Apostolic Grace – Building a True Work”. David speaks of his impression from the Lord that God’s glory and holy presence will come upon the meetings and that the Holy Spirit will bring great revelation. David brings several Scripture passages which deal with the glory of God and the Holy Spirit brooding over the earth and His people. David then invites people from the congregation to come forward and share what they believe that God is saying, before John Alley takes up the message with insights into the daily input from the Lord that is needed in order for all of us to grow and flourish.

A Clear View of Christ 2 - Set Your Heart



David Alley takes up the theme for today by returning to the previous week’s test, Colossians 3:1-4. He then gives some instance from everyday life of what it means to really have the heart set on a certain thing, and what the result is when the desired objective is not realized.

David explores the meaning of the Greek word zeteo which is translated “set your heart on” in today’s text. This word, he explains, means to seek something so that you will find it, to crave a certain thing. David then goes on to list some of the 115 times that this Greek word is used in the New Testament and the various ways in which it is translated.

The questions, says David, that we should ask ourselves are, “Am I going to live for Christ?” and “Am I going to do what Christ says?” If we will set out hearts on Jesus as an act of our will and simply let go of the other things that would take His place, then Christ will take care of the remaining things that we need in our lives.
