The Importance Of Not Being Proud – Looking at Romans 11:18-21, Nathan Tarrant explains why it is vitally important that as Christians we are not proud in anyway, ensuring we are not boastful of our walk, not comparing ourselves to the other branches in the olive tree, but rather humble with fear, looking to bear the right fruit for God in every way.
What It Means To Be Grafted In – Looking at Romans 11:16-17, where the Apostle Paul begins to talk about the breaking off of branches from the olive tree and the gentiles being grafted in as a wild olive shoot, Nathan Tarrant explains who the root of the tree is and what the olive tree represents, and how that impacts on us as people of God if we have been grafted in.
Practical Aspects Of Faith – In this sermon from the series, Lessons From The Wilderness, Alan Clark explains the importance of actually living in faith through obedience to God and His word, by showing us an example concerning how we are to interact with unsaved family, and an example of the consequences of disobedience to God’s commands.
The Uniting Of The Remnant – In Romans 11:11-15 the Apostle Paul confirms that the Jews have not fallen and therefore completely lost salvation, but that they have simply stumbled to allow the salvation of the gentiles to come into place. Nathan Tarrant explains how the LORD God had an eternal plan of uniting the Jews and gentiles as one people through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Why There Is Only A Remnant – At the start of Romans 11, the Apostle Paul explains that only a remnant of Israel remains within the family of God. This raises the question as to why there is only a remnant? Nathan Tarrant shows us in Romans 11:6-10 Paul’s explanation as to why there is only a remnant, and also the warning that comes from that to us, the gentiles.
There Will Always Be A Remnant – At the start of Romans 11, the Apostle Paul explains how Israel have not been rejected, there will always be a remnant. Nathan Tarrant explains how this means the church has not replaced Israel, but rather how the words of Paul in Romans 11:1-5 have an effect on us in the church and how we as Christians can ensure we are part of the remnant saved by grace.
Alan Clark looks at the parable of the sower and challenges us all if we have herd the gospel message of Jesus Christ, to look within ourselves and see on which ground has the seed of the gospel fallen upon, within us.
Why People Do Not Respond To The Call of The Gospel – In Romans 10:18-21 the Apostle Paul explains that everyone knows that God exists and have heard the call to repent. The Jews in particular have heard the call from God, yet they were disobedient to the call. Nathan Tarrant explains in detail how no person, will ever be without excuse,for not coming to God in repentance, because everyone is aware of the glory of God and yet we would all choose to be disobedient to the command to repent, for that is the true nature of man.

The Importance Of Preaching The True Gospel – The Apostle Paul has said that anyone who calls on the name of Jesus Christ will be saved. Paul then asks, how are they going to call on Christ, if they do not believe. Nathan Tarrant explains that this is not simply a matter of believing Jesus Christ existed, but that he is the only means of salvation. Pastor Nathan then goes on to explain why then it is important that the true gospel is preached, through the universal call to repent, otherwise people will be hearing about the wrong Christ and will not hear the command for repentance.
The Riches of Christ – In Romans 10:12-13 the Apostle Paul explains that salvation is available to all, if they call on the name of Jesus Christ. Nathan Tarrant explains what that means, and shows us too that the riches of Christ are available only to those who do call on His name.
