- Who we are
- What we do
It’s been a few days since the Real Hope Week hit Oak Flats Anglican, and we’re thrilled with what happened in this action-packed week of reach out to the local community.
One of the team members from Moore College put together this video to give a taste of what happened. It’s from the perspective of the theological students and their role as visiting ministers to our church… but you can get an idea of how much fun they had joining with us during the week.
Please keep praying that God gets all the glory as the impact of that week keeps making waves around our local area.
Crucifixion is something that is part of a bygone era. When people are executed these days, other forms of killing are chosen… whether it’s electric chair, lethal injection, or other means.
The problem with this is that we have almost romanticised the cross of Christ, and in doing so, we have dampened the true horror of this awful tool of pain and suffering.
But for Jesus, it was more than just pain and suffering: it was also humiliation and scorn.
In Galatians chapter 3 verse 13, we are reminded that ‘Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”’
This Easter, let’s not forget the cost of the cross for Christ, and how by being cursed he set us free from the curse of the law which leads to eternal death.
