From May to July we're taking a break from John to hear from James, the brother of Jesus, who made it plain that belief and faith is evidenced in how we live our lives. Good deeds matter. How we speak and act is really important. That's what this is all about. Living faith.

JESUS in big lettersThe Gospels give us a brilliant picture of a compassionate and fearless teacher who was loved by many but made enough enemies to suffer an early death at their hands. Later, the apostle Paul wrote about him like this:

Colossians 1:15,17
He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation... and in him all things hold together.

These words give us a starting point for our new series, exploring JESUS in big letters, searching the Scriptures for as complete a picture of Him as we can find. But a picture only hangs on a wall and looks nice. The real JESUS is actually calling His followers to be like Him, not to be two-dimensional images looking nice, but 3D human beings, living like He did! That’s some challenge – but it is what we are being transformed into!

Romans 8:29
For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn, with many brothers and sisters. NLT 

2 Corinthians 3:18
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. NIV

Our Bible teaching series through to Easter is "Pray!"

If asked the question "Why pray?" the best answer is probably, "Because Jesus did!" If he needed to pray then those who claim to be His followers can hardly expect not to! Yet it is true that many Christians find prayer difficult or feel guilty about their lack of prayer.

This series is not intended to make anyone feel guilty. We'd much rather see people motivated by encouragement than guilt! So we hope that this series will open up the possibilities of prayer in all kinds of ways that deepen our relationship with our loving God and see lives changed. That's exciting isn't it?

When Jesus' disciples saw the power of prayer in their Master's life they wanted to know the secret. He taught them. He gave them a radically different way of connecting with God by talking about Him as Father and giving them the Lord's Prayer. That's where this series begins.

Radical Kingdom jpegWhen Jesus began His ministry He started to talk about a Kingdom – the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of Heaven.  This “rule of God” in people’s lives was His great theme and He illustrated what it meant in a whole variety of ways. It was totally radical and thoroughly transformative for those who accepted it and committed themselves to it as His followers.

This Radical Kingdom changed the world.

The question is, what does it mean for us today? Are those of us who call ourselves Christians, the Church, actually providing a great example of God’s Kingdom to a world that needs to discover it? If not, what do we need to change?

In this series we’ll look at some of the things Jesus said and did and find out how we too can be part of His “Radical Kingdom” and true to His teaching.
