Pray to Revive

What do your prayers look like? How do you pray? What you have before is a lesson on prayer, to help shape your prayers and encourage you to pray. All this with the single aim to help you revive your life through the way you pray. And in doing so – (and in the case of Restart Church) – revive your Community (as we aim to revive the spiritual heart of our…

Father’s Day 2019

I am very sorry for the poor audio feed on our Father’s Day video presentation. Please listen closely though. The content of this message is vital. The notes follow below. Our Restart Father’s Day Focus is to address two central motivations of all men. Ladies young and old – now get this – did you hear that? Two central motivations of all men; and no…

Sufferings to Holiness

In our Introduction to the book of First Peter, we discovered that this little five chapter book is a book about suffering.  We learned how singularity qualified this vulnerable and effusive man is in guiding you and I through the difficulties of life. This lesson begins at verse 13 of the first chapter where we find the beginnings of a rich vein of Bible Truth. Here…

Fear Smacking

What, Me Worry? – Why teach this?  You might say “I don’t really think I have a problem here – I mean I’m not really afraid of anything.” Well okay, I can hear that. But the climb to Bible Ground informs us that fear can be a component of many of our difficulties. As we move through this lesson together let’s remember to consider…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Lust

I know what Lust is – or Do I? We perhaps see Lust more as a noun: as in libedo; and lechery.   And though this indeed can become a stumbling block – the instruction here  emphasizes lust as a verb: as in desiring and craving.  And as such,  Lust is at the heart of all the 6 previous sins. We Must Begin with Human Composition The human critter is made up of…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Gluttony

Gluttony is Overeating, Right? Well, yes.  But the climb to Bible Ground reveals it is much more.  Gluttony is the sickness of becoming insatiable after anything.  It could be money or power. We can be selfish about the sanctity of our own time.  We get cranky when people or activities put a crimp on our personal time.  We begin to dodge responsibility to wallow in our…

Share Your Hope

Why A Sermon on Sharing Hope? At Restart we follow the imperative of sharing our Faith from an application of the story of David and Goliath.  The passage is found in 1 Samuel 17, but let’s lean in on verse 40: David took his stick in his hand and chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook, and put them in the shepherd’s bag which he had, even in his pouch,…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Sloth

Sloth – Who, Me? No really.  Sloth is likely the last thing you might understand about yourself.   But yet Sloth is epidemic among Believers.  Sloth is a habitual disinclination to exertion, or in other words: laziness.  Sloth is putting off doing things until later.  It means not being thorough in the things you do.  Sloth is giving into yourself.  Our approach in…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Wrath

Would you say you have a temper? The Word of God has much to offer in terms of understanding temper, anger, (or as termed in this study) Wrath.  And what’s more important – the Bible offers a clear path to directly engage our temper and overcome it.  You could say it’s the ultimate in anger management. Four Truths about Wrath Though there are bundles of…
