Just like the military has certain codes and rules that govern how they deal with conflict situations, so too, as Christians, we have a code of behaviour, from Jesus, on what to do when those inevitable conflicts arise. Because relationships are
important to Jesus. Anger and broken relationships was something that Jesus is concerned about…

As a Church, we need to model Fatherhood for the many in our church and community who have never known their Dad or the Dad they have known, has let them down. We said earlier in this series, when Tracey preached on Mother’s Day, that family for Jesus is beyond biology – so this morning I want to encourage those who are in a Dad position – whether biological, step, adopted, fostering,
uncles, big brothers, granddads – lets be Great Dads and give the world a picture of how God designed fatherhood to be. You are important, you are influential – your interaction with the ‘children’ in your life and circle is crucial.

This is a big subject, one that we can only touch on briefly in the time we have tonight, but we are going to cover as much as we can, so here goes! To begin with, let me say that I’m not an expert on this, and I’m not going to try and
be. But I do that that God knows everything there is to know about relationships. So we are going to lean into what he says! But there are a few things I believe I can pass on from personal experience…

Jesus and Zacchaeus

Zacchaeus was a Chief tax collector. He was a high up guy, and had cheated people out of money. He probably wasn’t very popular in that crowd. But.. Sometimes our actions are legal, but still sinful. Zaccheaus couldn’t be arrested for what he was doing, but it wasn’t ethical. He was collecting tax through all different ways and leaving people with less money than they should have had.

One aspect that continually strikes me about Jesus is the compassion that he had upon people. He spent the majority of his time around people. Which shows us how much he valued people.

This morning we are continuing with our series “Great Relationships,” with a sub-title “A Look at how Jesus interacted with people,” and this morning I want to look at two groups of people who never got what Jesus was saying – they simply didn’t understand and never got it – the penny never dropped. As we look at how Jesus interacted with these two groups, we will see how the outcomes were so different.

For good or evil. Relationships define your life. That is absolutely, true. And so I have really been looking forward to teaching this  message… because we are a church poised at a very interesting time… and so I want to set some biblical parameters, some
frameworks, for how to have significant healthy relationships..

Jesus and Motherhood

Happy Mother’s Day! This day means so many different things to different people – also the meaning of it changes for you through the years. For some it is sad day – when they miss their Mom or their child. For others, it is full of longing for dreams that have not come true. For others is full of joy and meaning. It is the same with Motherhood – it is such an emotional word and relationship. Motherhood and life rarely turns out how we planned or pictured it.
