On the 6th January 2010 sadly the author of this website, Rev Dennis Reynolds, died after a short illness. His sermons are still here to read on this site but there is no one to answer emails.
His family hope that these sermons will be of help to you.
He wanted his life to be summed in the following words:
He lived as he died continually amazed at the mercy love and grace of God in Christ.
At 2. Chronicles 7: 14., we find this famous text: ‘If my people, who are called by my Name, humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and heal their land’.
Jesus Christ was born into the world, for a very definite purpose; to break down, and remove, the barrier of sin separating mankind from God.
The removal of the barrier, would make it possible for mankind to draw near to its Creator; not only in prayer, but also in close relationship ... so God actually removed it, through Christ.
Who are you; and who am I? We may feel that we know just who we are; but do we? Others may believe that they know all about us; but do they?
In the light of what we feel that we know about ourselves, and about each other; we write mental labels, and stick them on. Once stuck on, for good or ill, such labels are very difficult to remove.
In the Christian faith, the words commonly used to describe Jesus Christ, and his soul-saving actions, are Redeemer and Redemption.
Redemption is an ongoing activity of God; ongoing, in that it is continually offered, regardless of whether or not it is accepted…
Once again, Christmas has reminded us that the giving and receiving of presents, symbolizes the greatest giving and receiving of all; the gift of God's own self to the world, in Jesus Christ; and our receiving of him, into our lives.
How does a man or woman become a Christian?
Every day at Woodhill, there is a certain amount of puzzlement, on the part of men who are trying to make sense of the Christian faith; who hope to make a bit of progress; but who feel that they aren’t getting anywhere.
Many churches; claiming to be guided by local needs and opportunities; take an ‘as-and-when’ approach to outreach; and miss out. So do those who, otherwise, might have been blessed through them, had things been done in God’s way.
Certain responsibilities within church life; belong to us all. For example, Godly love, which is of the will, as well as of the heart, is commanded of all of us (Deut. 6:5 and John 15:17)
Verse 10 says: 'Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might’. Many Christians are not 'strong in the Lord', for several common reasons.
The commonest one, is trying to be strong in their own power. They need to stop trying; and accept God's 'Let go, and let me' requirement of them.
