Chris Key chris@kingschurchbirmingham.org Evangelism as Exiles https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/1peter/evangelism-as-exiles Andy Farrer Evangelism as Exiles
At the beginning of Peter’s first letter to believers scattered across Asia Minor he describes them as elect exiles. Chosen by God the Father, set apart by the Spirit for the purpose to obey Jesus Christ. Peter encourages believers in their difficult environment that their citizenship, their home is in heaven and that Christians are temporary residents and exiles on earth. He encourages and urges them to live for Christ their exiled king, as they live as strangers in this land. Peter urges believers in Asia Minor and us today that our whole lives are on mission live for Christ, we always want to be ready to give a reason for the Hope we have in Him and to declare the Better Life we have in Jesus.

Verse: 1 Peter 1:1-2

The days we're living in https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/general/the-days-we-re-living-in Stephen Morrison The days we're living in
Karl Barth said we should ‘preach with the bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other’. In this message we take time to reflect. In the last few years, we’ve all had to walk through so much; covid (lockdowns), racial tensions, the war in Ukraine, a cost-of-living crisis, and the passing of Queen Elizabeth to name a few… let alone our many personal challenges! Our need and the needs in our city are greater than ever before. And therefore, we need God’s love, comfort, and power more than ever before! In Acts 1 we find hope that Jesus is still on the move. He has plans for His people. And that He will empower us, by His Holy Spirit, in our time of need!

Verse: Acts 1:1-9

Meeting Jesus on the road https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/kingofthejews/meeting-jesus-on-the-road Helen Pollard Meeting Jesus on the road
In this passage Jesus meets with two unknown, lost and hurting disciples on the road to Emmaus. This is the very first story in Luke's Gospel where Jesus appears after his death, and he surprises us with his choice of place and people. No one is too insignificant for him - he cares deeply and he listens with every part of his being. Yet he is beautifully intolerant and doesn't want us to remain stuck in our pain. He sets a fire in our hearts and he opens our eyes - he is just waiting for us to invite him in.

The Resurrection https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/kingofthejews/the-resurrection Stephen Morrison The Resurrection
In this passage we see the glorious truth that Jesus has defeated death and is raised to new life. The tomb is empty. Jesus is alive. It really happened. And because it happened it changes everything. Our eternal future is secure, and our lives now can be transformed too. To live with the knowledge that a better day is coming, gives us great strength to persevere through all the trials we currently face. Trusting in the promise that “Everything sad is going to come untrue and it will somehow be greater for having once been broken and lost” Tolkien.

Put It in the Tomb https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/kingofthejews/put-it-in-the-tomb Tim Suffield Put It in the Tomb
Jesus is dead. The world has ended, and the old creation is done. The disciples are bereft. We can relate: we are all intimately familiar with Death. It stalks our footsteps. In this message Tim explored what we can do with all those dead things, the hope that the tomb gives us for the future, and how we have to learn to live in the Between.

The death of Jesus https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/kingofthejews/the-death-of-jesus Stephen Morrison The death of Jesus
In this passage Luke invites us to take a long deep look at Jesus to see Him for the glorious saviour that He truly is. Jesus is assailed by darkness from 12-3pm as the weight of human sin, the bruising of the enemy and even the wrath of God is laid upon him. Jesus endures our darkness, our judgement day that we might find life. As the darkness lifts, the temple curtain is torn in two. Access to God is granted as the final sacrifice is made. The world as we know it will never be the same again…!
