I Believe in Jesus Christ || Joel Snibson || Matthew 1:18-35 & Colossians 1:15-20

There’s no mucking about today; it’s a big topic: How can Jesus be fully God and fully Human- and why does it matter? We’re spending this term looking through the Apostles’ Creed, line by line, in a series we’re calling “I Believe” – a line repeated throughout the Creed. Today “I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary” Connect with us at ➜ Website: https://stjohnsdc.org.au ➜…

Teaching & Table || Joel Snibson || Luke 24:13-35

Diving into a superhero movie these days can feel disorientating. You might not have read issue 486 of The Amazing Spiderman from 1982, and so are missing some important context for the new movie! Fortunately, your nerdy friend can explain things to you as you go – filling in details and throwbacks that were, at the time, foreshadowing things that are happening now. Our passage today isn’t exactly like that, but what we do see is the risen Jesus joining…

Righteousness from faith || Joel Snibson || Romans 4:1-25

Where do we put our trust, and how do we justify ourselves? Are your actions accounting for your ‘goodness’? You’re probably a good person! That’s all it takes, right? We’re wrapping up our look through the start of Romans today, and Joel explores the gift of righteousness Jesus offers.

Mary’s Song || Joel Snibson || Luke 1:46-56

It can be hard to see from our 2000 year of removal from the birth of Jesus, but his coming was the start of a revolution. Like all good revolutions, this one had an anthem in song: Mary’s song, that we find in Luke. Connect with us at ➜ Website: https…

Miriam’s Song || Joel Snibson || Exodus 15:1-18

As we wait for Christmas, to celebrate the birth of our saviour, carols will be a big part of that. Singing to remind ourselves, and to bring praise to God for who his is and what he’s done. We’re starting a new series today looking at song from the bi…

Made for Community || Joel Snibson || 1 Peter 2:1-10

There’s a saying, that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. The idea being that we are shaped by those we interact with the most. Today we’re exploring the idea that ‘You Do You’ doesn’t work, as we’re made as people who…

God’s Unfair Grace || Joel Snibson || Matthew 20:1-16

When we focus on our own work and good deeds, we can fall into the trap of comparison. Instead, let’s focus on God’s scandalous grace, bringing joy and celebration when we see others also receiving that grace! Connect with us at ➜ Website: https://stjo…

God’s Plans || Joel Snibson || Acts 28

When our plans don’t work out, and we’re faced with setbacks, it can be hard to see the path Jesus is leading us on. We’ll all ask “why God?” when we’re struck by storms, but with the help of the Spirit, we can stand firm in our faith and trust the Jes…

Waiting For A Priest || Joel Snibson || Hebrews 10:1-18

What’s better: a short-term fix, or a long-term solution? The ancient Israelites made sacrifice after sacrifice, but this was just a bandaid solution. The real, long-term solution is what they were waiting for. Connect with us at ➜ Website: https://s…

Pentecost || Holy Spirit || Acts 2:1-13

God’s plan for reconciliation begins with the unifying work of the Holy Spirit. In this new series, we’ll look at how the Holy Spirit transformed the early church. Joel begins this series, looking at the bringing together of God’s scattered people at P…
