The love of God is far greater than we assume, and reaches far further than we could ever comprehend.

Verse: Exodus 34:6-7

From the Character of God series - Exodus 34:6-7 is the most quoted passage in the Hebrew scriptures. It is referenced more than 27 times in the Old Testament and provides a beautiful summary, revealed to us by God, of God’s own character. We discover a God full of mercy, compassion and who is abounding in steadfast love. However, there also seem to be some apparent tensions in God’s character. His mercy v His justice, for example. The fact that He is merciful and yet will by no means clear the guilty. However, the fact that this passage is so often referenced shows us the stability and constancy of God’s character as well. In this series we’ll unpack the rich beauty of how God is revealed, knowing that the more we know and understand God’s character the more we can live lives that honour Him. And ultimately, we’ll see that all the apparent tensions are fully and firmly resolved in the revelation of Jesus Christ’s life, death and resurrection! ]]>

<![CDATA[ Gracious God ]]> https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/character-of-god/gracious-god Steve Morrison Gracious God
This week we look at another attribute of God, namely, that God is gracious. God’s grace is so surprising and unlike any human ‘grace’. God’s grace is unending, unfailing, unlimited, and unmerited. We often think we’ve got a handle on understanding it, but we’ll discover it’s barely possible to plumb its depths. God’s grace is more exhilarating, freeing and more life changing than we could possibly believe. God’s unmerited grace means that as His children we can never blow it, His grace never runs out. It comes to us no strings attached. It covers all our sin. And in Christ Jesus, all we need to do to receive it… is ask!

AW Tozer said, ‘the most important thing about you is what comes into your head when you think about God’. Knowing who God is, is of the upmost importance in living out the Christian life. Like the Israelites we all have a tendency to make God into our own image… In the introduction to this series Steve takes us through the most quoted verses in the Old Testament to discover what God has said about Himself. We see the importance of God’s self-revelation in helping us know who He truly is.

We encounter two men who define all of reality: Adam and Jesus.

Verse: 1 Corinthians 15:45-50

From the Worship: Love, gifts & resurrection series - Paul is teaching the Church in Corinth what it means to be worshippers of Jesus Christ. Rooted in the truth of what He has accomplished, we stand on a firm foundation. Knowing His deep love for us means we learn to love one another and celebrate our diversity. In this series we’ll look at Paul’s practical guidelines that promote both the vibrant community life of worship as well as order and what it means to prefer one another. We’ll also consider how we might we grow in our worship; as individuals, families and corporately especially as we have our younger children joining in our worship times. Worship is what we were made for! ]]>

<![CDATA[ New bodies! ]]> https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/1-Cor-12-15/new-bodies Steve Morrison New bodies!
The Corinthians couldn’t get their heads around what new resurrection bodies would be like, and often neither can we. God promises us new resurrection bodies that are no longer perishable, weak, and falling apart. Instead, we are given a vision of transformed bodies that will be imperishable, powerful, and full of glory. Our hope in the resurrection is more full and complete than we could dare hope or imagine. Not just younger, healthier versions of ourselves but we will be given spiritual bodies, fit for life with God in the new creation. In this message we debunk a few of the ways we tend to tame or minimise this particular hope and unpack the rich reality of what resurrection bodies really means for the age to come.

<![CDATA[ Giving Sunday 2024 ]]> https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/general/giving-sunday-2024 Steve Morrison Giving Sunday 2024
This Sunday we take a look at the ‘crazy’ Macedonians who were begging Paul to take part in the offering for the suffering Judeans. What produces generosity like that? What makes us want to give away our money? Paul writes that God loves a cheerful giver. Yet, God is not sadistic, demanding we look pleased when we suffer. Rather, we find a God who has given everything for us. He came poor that we might become rich. As we explore these gospel promises we realise God loves a cheerful giver not for His own sake but for ours. It is a sign that we have truly understood the breathtaking news that through His poverty we are made rich. When you know you already have everything, you’re free to give it all away.

As we explore these gospel promises we realise God loves a cheerful giver not for His own sake but for ours. It is a sign that we have truly understood the breathtaking news that through His poverty we are made rich. When you know you already have everything, you’re free to give it all away.

Verse: 2 Corinthians 8:1-5 & 2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Paul continues with his argument that worship must be in good order, this week we try to get underneath why that's the case.

Verse: 1 Corinthians 14:26-40

From the Worship: Love, gifts & resurrection series - Paul is teaching the Church in Corinth what it means to be worshippers of Jesus Christ. Rooted in the truth of what He has accomplished, we stand on a firm foundation. Knowing His deep love for us means we learn to love one another and celebrate our diversity. In this series we’ll look at Paul’s practical guidelines that promote both the vibrant community life of worship as well as order and what it means to prefer one another. We’ll also consider how we might we grow in our worship; as individuals, families and corporately especially as we have our younger children joining in our worship times. Worship is what we were made for! ]]>

<![CDATA[ God's gift of lament ]]> https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/general/god-s-gift-of-lament Andy Farrer God's gift of lament
In psalm 13 we hear David's cry of pain to God. He turns to God in his despair, brings his complaint to Him and begins to ask God bold prayers to change his situation. As David laments and processes his suffering with God, he moves from despair to trusting in Him once again. Today in our despair and pain, God invites us to receive his gift of lament as He enters into our struggles with us. We look to Jesus our great high priest who loves us and died for us and in life's pain, we can boldly approach Him to receive help at our greatest time of need.

Verse: Psalm 13:v1-6

King's Church is a nanocosm of the kingdom of heaven evidenced by the diversity of nations, peoples, and languages represented in our church. Rev. 7 tells us that one day we will stand before the throne of God with people from every nation, tribe, people, and tongue, and that the Lamb of God will dwell with us. But we know that God is with us already, as he promised, through Jesus Christ and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to be witnesses to him in all the world.

<![CDATA[ Love never ends ]]> https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/1-Cor-12-15/love-never-ends Steve Morrison Love never ends
In our culture everyone believes in love. The Beatles declared that ‘all you need is love’. Everyone knows love’s importance and lasting value. And Paul declares that love lasts forever, it never ends. This week we take a look at what love really is, and how only God guarantees that it never fails. Because God is love He promises His people that one day we will be given access to a face-to-face relationship with Him. An intimate, close-up experience of the glory of God that even Moses could only dream of in Exodus 33. Through Jesus we have access to the face of God. A face that is the answer to our every longing and desire, the face that is the answer to every hope we’ve ever had.

<![CDATA[ The way of love ]]> https://www.kingschurchbirmingham.org/audio/1-Cor-12-15/the-way-of-love Steve Morrison The way of love
This week we come to, arguably, the most famous chapter in the New Testament. Often taken out of context this is Paul’s appeal to the Corinthians to see love as their greatest aim, not the unbridled use of their spiritual gifts. In this chapter Paul paints a beautifully poetic picture of agape love. Not just emotion or feeling but action as well. It points to God’s love that is both patient and kind. God’s love that does not insist on its own way. And ultimately God’s love for those (us) who don’t deserve it. We are called to love like this. God is calling us as a church to make love our greatest priority. To audit every area of our lives in the belief that without love we gain nothing.
