Sharon explains.</p> Sun, 07 Apr 2013 00:00:00 +1100 The coming of the Spirit http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1132/acts02_0414.mp3 <p>Sharon clarifies that wanting something, and promise keeping are not the same thing – God’s promises are kept, but not everything we want we get.&nbsp; This passage has caused such dissention and argument regards the way God fulfils his promised Holy Spirit in our lives, and the answer is that when we assume a particular form or framework, we limit God.&nbsp; The reality is God will keep his promise in a myriad of ways &amp; experiences, because we are all unique, and we all need to be equipped for the role he would have for us to do.&nbsp; As a result, we should go back to the process written on the banner from last week – Stop and know who God is,&nbsp; Wait for the promise of his Spirit, daily asking for his presence in our lives, Go in do the variety of things God has equipped us to participate in, in giving us himself.</p> Sun, 14 Apr 2013 00:00:00 +1000 The experience of the Holy Spirit http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1133/acts03_0421.mp3 <p><span>The passage is about the experience of the Holy Spirit, in the lives of the disciples, both then and now.&nbsp; The Holy Spirit gave the disciples great love for one another, so that they looked after one another’s needs with generous hearts.&nbsp; Peter saw the gift of the Holy Spirit as more precious than silver or gold, and through its power, in the name of Jesus, healed a lame man, who then praised God.&nbsp; We are called to be generous to one another and to be willing to step out in faith and use the gift of the Spirit for the work God calls us to, and Jesus has equipped us for in the giving of the Spirit.&nbsp; Again, we reflect on the process written on the banner – Stop and know who God is,&nbsp; Wait for the promise of his Spirit, daily asking for his presence in our lives, Go in do the variety of things God has equipped us to participate in, in giving us himself. </span></p> Sun, 21 Apr 2013 00:00:00 +1000 Conflict, a reality of life in the Spirit http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1134/acts04_0428.mp3 <p>Sharon discusses how conflict, although ever-present, can be used for growth.</p> Sun, 28 Apr 2013 00:00:00 +1000 The cost of hypocrisy http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1135/acts05_0505.mp3 Sun, 05 May 2013 00:00:00 +1000 How do we get insight? http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1136/acts07_0519nr.mp3 <p><span>Alasdair looks at the story of Stephen, who understood Jesus as the key to understanding his history, and God in his life.&nbsp; We must be careful not to become set in our ways, so that we are stubborn and not willing to hear what God says to us, which was the situation for those who stoned Stephen.</span></p> Sun, 19 May 2013 00:00:00 +1000 Breaking down the racial barriers http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1137/acts08_0526.mp3 Sun, 26 May 2013 00:00:00 +1000 God is not far from any of us http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1138/acts09_0602.mp3 <p><span>The passage is reminding us that God is not far from any of us.&nbsp; There three three thoughts here:</span></p> <ul> <li><span>God is never far from anyone who truly seeks after his presence, and there are no obstacles that God puts up, only human beings limit access to God.</span></li> <li><span>Secondly, Jesus is the key to understanding God, and understanding his word, and we should be helping people to make the link, when it is clear that they are seeking.&nbsp; </span></li> <li><span>Lastly, the Holy Spirit is the one who prepares the way and equips us, the situation, and the people who are seeking.&nbsp; All we have to do is be obedient.</span></li> </ul> Sun, 26 May 2013 00:00:00 +1000 God&#039;s makeover of Saul http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1139/acts10_0609.mp3 <p><span>The passage is the story of the conversion of Saul.&nbsp; Can people change?&nbsp; Yes, but it takes the power and presence of God to make the change possible and lasting.&nbsp; What we require is a will to change, and to align ourselves with the will of God.</span></p> Sun, 09 Jun 2013 00:00:00 +1000 God’s makeover of Peter http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1140/acts11_0616.mp3 <p><span>The passage is the story of the Peter and Cornelius, and what God did to change Peter’s understanding of who is acceptable.&nbsp; </span></p> Sun, 16 Jun 2013 00:00:00 +1000 Conversion - The job of the Holy Spirit http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1141/acts12_0630.mp3 <p><span>The passage is the story of the Peter and Cornelius, continuing with Peter’s speech to the gathering about the acceptability of all who come to God in faith.</span></p> Sun, 30 Jun 2013 00:00:00 +1000 Spiritual Jealousy http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1142/acts01_0504.mp3 Sun, 04 May 2014 00:00:00 +1000 Leap of Faith http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1143/acts02_0525e.mp3 Sun, 25 May 2014 00:00:00 +1000 Coping with Change http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1144/acts03_0601e.mp3 Sun, 01 Jun 2014 00:00:00 +1000 X-Files - the truth is out there http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1145/acts04_0608e.mp3 Sun, 08 Jun 2014 00:00:00 +1000 Supernatural experience - Not always God http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1146/acts05_0615e.mp3 <p><span>Paul and Silas confront a spirit indwelling a slave girl, and this causes trouble for them with the owners, and then the mob who are stirred up about it.&nbsp; We face evil in the world all the time, and as followers of Jesus, we are challenged, like Paul &amp; Silas to confront evil when and where we find it, even when it causes trouble for us.&nbsp; This is part of what it means to take up our cross and follow Christ.</span></p> Sun, 15 Jun 2014 00:00:00 +1000 In God&#039;s name we go http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1147/acts06_0622.mp3 <p><span>The story continues with Paul &amp; Silas in prison, and an earthquake, and fear of the jailer, but Paul stops him from killing himself as they stay where they are.&nbsp; This then is the final thing that makes the jailer want to know about the God they worship, and as he is told, he and his household are baptized.&nbsp; Great story that reminds us that God works his will and his way in the most difficult of situations, and we should trust him.</span></p> Sun, 22 Jun 2014 00:00:00 +1000 Truth unchangeable http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1148/acts07_0629ae.mp3 Sun, 29 Jun 2014 00:00:00 +1000 Faith, more than the form of Baptism http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1149/0726e.mp3 <ol> <li>What is the advantage in being Baptised?&nbsp; Paul says it is great, in that we have access to the ethics and values of God, and his Word.&nbsp; However, Baptism is not; can not; and will not ever be effective without a heart response of faith-outward signs do nothing without the reality of a true relationship with God.</li> <li>If those who are Baptised reject the faith they have been baptized into, does this mean God will abandon them?&nbsp; There will always be a remnant of people within those who are taught about God from childhood, who become faithful.&nbsp; In this truth, God is seen to not abandon his promise.</li> <li>If both baptized as children, and those who know nothing about God are all acceptable to God according to faith – let’s live sinfully, so that grace and love can abound boldly!&nbsp; God is a God of Justice, and expects people to respond according to their knowledge, whether about God or the moral absolutes of the universe, all will be judged, and held accountable.</li> <li>Are you saying the more we sin, the more God can forgive us?&nbsp; No 1000 times no!!!!&nbsp; Faith comes to us all because&nbsp; all of us are desperate before God.</li> </ol> Sun, 26 Jul 2015 00:00:00 +1000 The Heart of the Gospel &amp; The Faith Factor http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1150/0802e.mp3 Sun, 02 Aug 2015 00:00:00 +1000 Grace, Law, and Belonging http://oakchurch.org.au/site/assets/files/1151/0809a.mp3 <p>(we apologise for missing the first section the reading in the recording)</p> Sun, 09 Aug 2015 00:00:00 +1000 New life – Blessing &amp;
