We all see what the world is like Where’s this great new society we’re all being promised? What if I told you – you’re it? We’re it? Us, the church You and me, how we live, what we do, what our priorities are How we love, how we treat each other, the heart attitudes we hold for each other, what we say about others when they’re not there Is that on earth as it is in heaven? And not just us, the church, but everyone in church.

Is that a bit strange to ask? Demand is a strong word! Perhaps it’s not strange We’re used to talking about God’s will for our lives? What does God want me to do with my life? What’s God’s will for humanity? What does God want for me? We recognise the questions But do we ask them? And if we do, do we expect an answer An answer that we would actually respond to! Instead of hungering after a solid answer to what does Jesus ask of me? Do you slip into a far more comfortable – What does Jesus do for me? ‘Cause we know the answers to that And we’re happy with it David Smith http://westbeachbaptist.com/podcast/?name=2015-07-12_jul_12_2015.mp3 http://westbeachbaptist.com/podcast/?name=2015-07-12_jul_12_2015.mp3 22:23 dsfifty.smith@gmail.com (David Smith) David Smith no Sun, 12 Jul 2015 00:30:00 +0000 His Miracles David Smith What’s the miracle that you’d like God to do right now? For you? For someone you love? For your marriage? For your grandchildren? If God was going to do a miracle What would it be, where is that deep place of need? Second question… With that in mind… Looking back over the last week, have you prayed for it, for even five minutes a day?

Do you know what we would be trying to process and comprehend? Not healing, not miracles Not salvation or justification by faith The kingdom of God David Smith http://westbeachbaptist.com/podcast/?name=2015-06-14_jun_14_2015.mp3 http://westbeachbaptist.com/podcast/?name=2015-06-14_jun_14_2015.mp3 30:51 dsfifty.smith@gmail.com (David Smith) David Smith no Sun, 14 Jun 2015 00:30:00 +0000
