The Complaining Prophet

Habakkuk 1:1-2:1

Dan Maton | Sunday December 2, 2018 | Habakkuk

Habakkuk confronts God when it looks as if God has forsaken the covenant. Like him, our faith should enable us to wrestle with God when we are perplexed. This involves taking the problem to God, being honest with God about our questions, not prescribing the answers, and learning to wait when God does not respond straight away.

Dan Maton | Sunday October 21, 2018 | 1 Timothy

Walking by the Spirit

Galatians 5:16-26

Dan Maton | Sunday August 12, 2018 | Life in the Spirit

It’s time to seek the Lord because God wants to bless his people and make us more fruitful and so we need to break up our unploughed ground. It’s good to sing his praises, confess our sin, ask things of him, fast and meditate on him.
