Devotionals from Pastor Keith

"I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead."

~Philippians 3:10-11

Ascension Day!

Join Pastor Keith on your coffee break as Keith shares more on Philippians and the privilege of knowing Christ.

Do you have a passion to know Christ and to share Christ with others?

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6: 34

As we find ourselves in a time of chaos and uncertainty, join Pastor Keith in reflecting on the truths of Matthew 6: 25-34

"Cast your cares upon Him, for He cares about you"
1 Peter 5:7
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:38-39

As we look to the hope of spring, Pastor Keith leads us in a devotional focusing on the hope we have in a Saviour who brought hope up from the grave.  He takes us back in history to look at some saints who have gone before us:  Martin Luther, John Donne and C.S. Lewis, and how they experienced  God's hand in the midst of disease and war.

"I cry aloud to the Lord; I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy. I pour out before him my complaint; before him I tell my trouble."
Psalm 142:1-2

Part 1: Praying from the cave

David hid and found retreat in the cave of Adullam. During this time he prayed out to God and we can read that prayer in Psalm 142.

We are in our own caves today ... Pastor Keith provides some words of encouragement using David's prayer of Psalm 142.

"For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope."
Romans 15:4

Part 2: Praying from the cave

In Part 2, Pastor Keith encourages us to pray the Psalms of David and others who have poured out their hearts to God during times of isolation and fear. Pray these prayers for yourself and find true hope, light and life from God.

"Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed."

Psalm 57:1

Part 1: The Return of the King

As we prepare for Palm Sunday, Pastor Keith takes a look at the small dinner party held in Jesus honour, after he raised Lazarus from the dead.

They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
“Hosanna!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Blessed is the king of Israel!”
John 12:13

Part 2: The Return of the King

As we prepare for Palm Sunday, Pastor Keith takes a look at the small dinner party held in Jesus honour, after he raised Lazarus from the dead.

Christ our Passover

On this Passover night we are obediently staying indoors.  We are following instructions from our government medical team.  The first Hebrews followed God's instruction by hiding in their homes waiting for the Judgment of God to pass over.   

This video will hopefully help you gain a fresh perspective on what the Bible means when it speaks about "Christ our Passover".

Consider the Lilies

"Consider the lilies ... how they grow. They don't toil nor spin but I tell you ... Even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these."

Luke 12:27

Join Pastor Keith in this reflection on Jesus' teachings from the Sermon on the Mount. Fear not!

Meditation in a 1st Century Jail

An introduction to Paul's letter to the Philippians.

 

Pastor Keith will be leading us through a series on the book of Philippians over the next few Sundays.

These words will bring hope and joy as we put our faith in the same Lord who sustained Paul in his isolation and confinement. 

Visiting Paul in Prison

Pastor Keith guides us through a visit with Paul in prison with the help of Rembrandt. 

"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain."

Philippians 1:21

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

~Philippians 2:9-11

Jesus, Name Above All Names

Pastor Keith takes us through The Great Christological U-Turn spoken of in Philippians 2. Jesus went down into the grave, turned and came back up. He made himself nothing and died on the cross. And then God exalted Jesus and lifted him up.
