Meeting Jesus: Faith – A Kind of Seeing

Sunday 24 October 2021
Sermon by Ps. Ben Hooman

Faith is actually a kind of seeing. And it is this man’s famous testimony as we will see later in this chapter. “Once I was blind, but now I see,” has a double meaning. “Jesus performed a miracle in which I came to see” and “Jesus performed a miracle in which I came to believe.”

As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. We must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” Having said these things, He spit on the ground and made mud with the saliva. Then He anointed the man’s eyes with the mud and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam”. So, he went and washed and came back seeing.”

Weekly In-House Speaker: Marriage & Salvation

Tuesday 19 October 2021
Sermon by Lodewyk Avenant

The question is what will you and I do when a moment like this appears in our lives? When we come face to face with those who God chose. He chose to give us newness of life, he chose to love us even though there was no reason to. Even though according to his standard there is no way that we can be saved, unless he gave his son, unless he pays the price that we should have paid. That is grace and to survive and flourish in marriage is grace.

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
