Today's Message

Father God, in You is the most perfect love. How can we live up to it if not through only You? Help us, LORD, to be selfless, to be kind, and to be giving. Remove the scales from our eyes that we may see clearly. Let our ears hear that we may be convicted. Soften our hearts that we may understand. May we learn to love others as You love us. In Jesus Christ’s most precious name. Amen!

- Prayer by E1 member. St Hilda’s

Teaching Series on the Book of Jeremiah by Bishop Rennis Ponniah

April 2018

The Old Testament book of Jeremiah is a 2,500-year-old prophecy that is as relevant to our life today as it was to the Jews at the time.

It is message from and about God who works out his purposes through covenants.

Though more than 500 years before Christ, Jeremiah knew about the arrival of the New Covenant in Jesus that would change everything. The Jews in Jeremiah’s time were either longing for the Messiah to come or, the majority had given up hope and forsaken their God.

But God had not forsaken them.

In the same way, Christians all over the world look forward to Jesus’ second coming but most people in the world couldn’t care less. Jeremiah’s prophecy gives us great encouragement to live faithfully in a world that is in turmoil.

Bishop Rennis spent part of his sabbatical in 2016 to study Jeremiah at a deeper level. God powerfully spoke to Bp Rennis and he now passes the message on to the church in 10 sessions, delivered in five lectures at St Hilda’s Church.

GLORY


The Lord Jesus Christ is risen.

14 Apr 2019

Reflections on its significance.
As Christians, we celebrate important events in our lives. These include birthdays, wedding anniversaries, Christmas and other days of significance. The most important event should be the resurrection of Christ. I share below my reflections on the significance of this day for our lives.

The unreliability of man’s word and the reliability of God’s Word
A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public. They thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it. The acclaim was even greater . The theatre was burnt down with several casualties.

In a world of falsehood, unreliability and pretence, it has become increasingly difficult to determine truth and falsehood.
Then He began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. Mark 8:31

Words reflect the character, trustworthiness, reliability and truth of a person. Christ prophesied about His suffering, death and resurrection. These were fulfilled. Will we then place our trust on His Word.

The Resurrection proved that Christ was human and divine. Christ suffered, died and was buried. He understands our suffering. As He suffered, He uttered several significant statements. All these reflecting that Jesus Christ was human. Jesus proved that He was God by fulfilling the prophecies of His death and by His return from the grave. The bible declares that “by being raised from the dead [Christ] was proved to be the mighty Son of God, with the holy nature of God Himself” (Romans 1:4,).
