Chris Key chris@kingschurchbirmingham.org We're loved, so we're free to love https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/romans/we-re-loved--so-we-re-free-to-love Tim Suffield Romans 12:9-21 We're loved, so we're free to love
Paul begins to outline what it looks like to be a community that is transformed by the renewing of our minds. He lists a series of commands that describe how we behave towards one another inside the church, and then how we behave towards those outside who do harm to us. We are to love genuinely, putting others first and being united by our familial love. It sounds easy, its incredibly challenging.

Verse: Romans 12:9-21

From the Romans: The Gospel of God series - In this series we take a closer look at Paul’s letter to the Romans. Paul is writing to a church that he’s neither planted nor visited in an effort to convince them of his apostolic ministry and to give them confidence in the gospel. His hope is that they might be united, blessed and in the hope that they might support Him as he begins a new phase of missionary work in the West of the Roman Empire.

We will discover how this letter is primarily about God and His gospel. A gospel that both fulfils and elucidates scripture, how it has the power to bring life out of death, to produce the obedience of faith, unite Jew and Gentile as well as weak and strong. We’ll uncover a revelation of the righteousness of God, faith as the exclusive means of salvation and eternal resurrection life as the great hope of believers walking not in the flesh but in the spirit.

Paul is sure of his calling as an apostle who is on a mission to (1:4) bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of His name among all the nations, including the Romans. Nearly 2000 years later Jesus is still on His mission and wants to include us in the wonderful gospel of God. ]]>

Giving Sunday Feb 2020 https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/oneoff/giving-sunday-feb----- Stephen Morrison Mark 4:18-19, Luke 16:13 Giving Sunday Feb 2020
From the parable of the sower Jesus teaches that riches are deceitful and that they will suffocate and choke the life out of us. We also read in Luke 16 Jesus’ challenging observation that you cannot serve both God and money. Not that you shouldn’t but that you can’t. As followers of Jesus we take His teachings seriously and we want to choose God not money as our saviour. We also revel in the fact that what Jesus offers us is so much better than riches. We celebrate the fact that Jesus has died for us, mammon hasn’t. That He is our pleasure our provision & protection and we therefore give generously as an act of spiritual warfare, our way of saying yes to God.

Verse: Mark 4:18-19, Luke 16:13

Vision Sunday https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/oneoff/vision-sunday Stephen Morrison Nehemiah 4:1-3,10,6:2-4, Matthew 27:39-44 Vision Sunday
Looking at the life of Nehemiah we can learn some invaluable lessons for overcoming the enemies attacks and remaining confident in God’s power and protection. Nehemiah learns to stand firm and encourage the people in the face of many obstacles, as they rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. We too have a big vision laid before us; to preach the gospel, to raise up disciples, to plant churches and send evangelists to the nations. We can have confidence that God builds His church. That as we work hard He replenishes weary souls. That His yoke is easy, His burden is light. And ultimately we take confidence that Jesus’ work is finished. We celebrate that because on the cross Christ refused to come down (Matthew 27:39-44), the enemy has been overcome. So now we can walk into our future, full of confidence in Him.

Gifted https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/romans/gifted Stephen Morrison Romans 12:3-8 Gifted
In this second part of Romans 12 Paul helps us to think right. To have a ‘high view of God, a realistic view of ourselves and the right view of others’. Although Jesus had the highest status of all he chose to serve, and we are called to do likewise. But we also delight that God, in His grace has given us a multitude of gifts. We celebrate that no person has all the gifts but together, as His body, we have everything we need. We need one another, rely on one another, in fact we won’t be complete without each and every one of us playing their part.

Living the Gospel https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/romans/living-the-gospel Jennifer Key Romans 12:1-2 Living the Gospel
In the preceding chapters of Romans, Paul has set out the glorious truth of the gospel and all that it means for those who trust in Jesus. Paul now wants us to live the gospel — to live in response to God's mercy and grace, and to live in the fullness of all the gospel has won for us. When we understand who we are in Christ, and renew our minds in line with this truth, we can be transformed! Living free and living for God — just like Jesus.

The fullness of salvation https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/romans/the-fullness-of-salvation Stephen Morrison Romans 11:11-36 The fullness of salvation
Paul concludes this section of the letter by promising the full salvation of both Gentile and Jew. The promise to the gentiles is that they will be grafted into God’s people. The promise to the Jews is that ultimately all Israel will be saved. These truths are the antidote to anti-Semitism where Gentiles are the majority in the church in Rome. These gentiles, like us, are warned not to take their salvation for granted but to remember both God’s kindness and severity. Paul climaxes with a doxology, like a climber reaching the summit of a great mountain, he lays his arguments aside to erupt in praise and thanksgiving. All good theology leads to abundant praise and all true worship is fuelled by rich doctrine… the Apostle Paul gives us both.

God has not abandoned us https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/romans/god-has-not-abandoned-us Tim Suffield Romans 11:1-10 God has not abandoned us
Paul’s explorations of Israel’s refusal to believe in the Christ—and the way they pursued the law by works instead of faith—led him to ask “has God abandoned his people?” He answers an emphatic no! He proves this personally (he is proof), theologically (grace is grace), biblically (the remnant in Elijah’s time), and looking at the contemporary world (many Jews had come to faith). We can also feel that God has abandoned us, but he hasn’t, and he won’t.

Wait like Simeon; Hope like Anna https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/oneoff/wait-like-simeon--hope-like-anna Tim Suffield Luke 2:22-38 Wait like Simeon; Hope like Anna
We explored how all of us are waiting for something, even if we're not entirely sure what, and then explored how Simeon and Anna waited for most of their lives to meet Jesus the saviour of Israel. We learn from their example how to wait well, how to hope in difficult circumstances, how to fix our eyes firmly on Jesus and how to expect a day that is coming when everything will be made new.

Mary a model of faith https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/oneoff/mary-a-model-of-faith Stephen Morrison Luke 1:26-38 Mary a model of faith
Luke takes time describing the journey of faith that Mary embarks on after encountering the angel Gabriel. To give us an example and model of what it looks like to find faith. From measured incredulity – v34 ‘how can this be?’ to simple acceptance v38 ‘I am the Lord’s servant’ and finally to heartfelt praise v46 ‘my soul magnifies the Lord.’ Mary grows in her faith, confidence and trust in God. We too are invited on the journey of faith. We see that it is more than ok to doubt and ask questions if we are genuinely pursuing His answers. That God takes us by the hand and that often there is step we must take to gain a foothold in faith. Ultimately we find that whilst we have been searching for Him, He is the one who has found us.

God longs to save https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/romans/god-longs-to-save Stephen Morrison Romans 10:14-21 God longs to save
Paul wants to stir the Romans to action that they might be sent to preach Christ, and that many might hear, believe and call on the name of the Lord (v14-15). Paul is confident in the gospel and wants us to be too. He quotes Isaiah 52:7 ‘how beautiful are the feet of those who preach good news’ to encourage us that we have an incredible gospel to proclaim. He finishes the section by helping us see that God’s word never fails. God has sent messengers to all Israel that they might understand His salvation and He continues to hold out His arms beckoning them home (v18-21). 2000 years on and God is still beckoning His people home. He is actively involved in saving all who will call on Him. Why? That He might bestow his bountiful riches on us (v12).

The simple gospel https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/romans/the-simple-gospel Andrew Onobrakpeya Romans 10:5-13 The simple gospel
Andrew encouraged us from our latest passage by reminding us once more that salvation is by grace alone. That in one sense the gospel is incredibly simple and ‘all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved!’. We are encouraged by Andrew’s own personal journey and heard how God delivered him out of works and religion into discovering a relationship with Jesus founded on grace. That a true understanding of grace leads to boldness in life. To faith to pray for the sick and for the storms of life to be stilled. That grace encourages us that all who believe on him will never be put to shame.
