Two Encounters with Jesus – Graham Coyle

Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem to face the ordeal of the cross and to secure salvation for everyone, ever, through His death and resurrection.  He went via Jericho and on His way in to the town there was a blind guy, Bartimaeus.  (Mark 10:46-52, Luke 18:35-43)  Bartimaeus was at the bottom of every social scale that existed, even his name, Son of Timaeus means ‘son of filth’.  If ever anyone was to qualify for inclusion in a group of those who were socially marginalised and oppressed, Bartimaeus was one.  This was not shaping up to be an encounter of significance.

7 in ‘17 – Graham Coyle

This is the first blog of 2017, so Happy New Year.  I believe that there is a great sense of God’s promise for us to inherit in this year as we progress in His purposes for City Church.

If we look at the things already planned we can see that there are numerous opportunities for us to grow in grace, favour and faith together.
