Reimaging God Sermon Series – Ty Gibson

God is Love

Thousands have a false conception of God and His attributes. They are as verily serving a false god as were the servants of Baal. Are we worshiping the true God as He is revealed in His Word, in Christ, in nature, or are we adoring some philosophical idol enshrined in His place? God is a God of truth. Justice and mercy are the attributes of His throne. He is a God of love, of pity and tender compassion. Thus He is represented in His Son, our Saviour. He is a God of patience and long-suffering. If such is the being whom we adore and to whose character we are seeking to assimilate, we are worshiping the true God. Faith I Live By Pg. 60.

So what happens when we have a false conception of God? The Bible makes it clear, by beholding we become change, 2 Corinthians 3:18. If we see a demanding God that punishes the sinner for their sins and predestines their future, well, we become angry and oppress people and punish them for making mistakes. But if we believe God is Love, 1 John 4:16, we become changed to a beautiful character that is loving, joyful, peaceful, long-suffering, gentle, good, faithful, meek and temperate, Galatians 5:22-23.

The following video series is a beautiful explanation of who God is and how we can truly get to know His beautiful character. We truly recommend seeing the whole series.

A nun finds the answers

A conversion story

Angela as a nunHer eyes were closed, her fake ashen. She was dressed all in white. She was dead. And she was my friend. Aged six, I was kneeling by her bedside with some of her brothers and sisters. We were praying for her.

I was baptised in the Church of St Peter and St Paul, Clarecaslte, Co Clare, in the month of my birth. One of seven children, I was reared a devout Catholic. My father worked as a gardener at a Franciscan Friary, and at an early age I was introduced to Jesus, Mary and the saints.

Kneeling by the bedside of my little friend, my young mind was shocked into spiritual consciousness for the first time. Questions clamoured for answers. Why did my friend have to die? Why had God given Me life if I was going to die??

So many questions, their number and urgency increased as the years went by. In the changeless society in which I grew up so much was taken for granted, so many questions left unasked, let alone answered. So many puzzles and contradictions and pieces that would not fit together.

The only thing I was certain about was death. So there was a heaven to be won… and a hell to be shunned. My mother’s piety was a good influence upon me, she was my good angel. Read the rest of this entry »

The greatest miracle takes place inside you!

From the Scripture we know that Jesus was a worker of miracles – He healed the sick, cast out demons, raised the dead, turned water into wine and alike! But we also know that he didn’t seek to attract people by mere physical manifestations, no matter how powerful they were, Jesus sought to reach out for their hearts.

The greatest miracle takes place inside you!

This is my testimony that Jesus is alive, living and working in people’s lives, hearts and minds. Once He comes to live in us by the power of the Holy Spirit, the miracle inside you begins! Jesus calls it ‘to be born of the Spirit’ (John 3:8), Ezekiel – ‘a new heart’ (Ezekiel 36:26), Paul – ‘a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come’ (2 Corinthians 5: 17) and ‘I no longer live, but Christ lives in me’ (Galatians 2:20), and again in Colossians 1:26, 27 – the mystery of the gospel ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory’.
