Keep Jesus at the centre | Revelation 1:9-20 Sermon

What does it mean to fix our eyes on Jesus? In this second part of the series on Revelation, we start to look at how we can keep our eyes fixed on Jesus – especially in hard times. We look at John’s description of the Christian life – “suffering, kingdom, and patient endurance”.

Ten Commandments #1 – No other gods

The first commandment is “You shall have no other gods before me”. What does that mean – surely there is only one god? How can we have other gods before God? How do we keep this commandment today?

You can do the What is Christianity course here on the website. (Once the Ten Commandments course is finished you will also be able to find it on the courses page).

Coming up in 2022…

Happy New Year to all friends of Understand the Bible! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and you are looking forward to what is coming in 2022.

This is what is planned for Understand the Bible in the coming months:

  • New Course: The Ten Commandments. So do you think you know the Ten Commandments? They have been the bedrock of our laws for centuries, and yet they continue to speak into our lives to give us meaning and direction. They teach us right from wrong and help us to live well. This will be the next course on Understand the Bible, the first video should be out next week.
  • New Course: The Lord’s Prayer. After completing the Ten Commandments course, we’ll be looking at the Lord’s Prayer – which teaches us how to pray and fleshes out how we should relate to God.
  • Livestream Course. I will be re-starting the livestream course this afternoon as we finish off the last part of the Apostle’s Creed course.

In addition to all that, there will be more videos in the Your Questions Answered series. I have one question someone asked me already, but if you have any more questions then do send them in (you can leave a comment below or get in touch).

And this year, Understand the Bible will be turning THREE! I can hardly believe it’s been going for three years already. Thanks so much to everyone who’s supported it this year – I feel like it’s going to be a good year.

God bless everyone, and I hope I will see you again over these coming weeks for the Ten Commandments!

Can you find Christmas lights bright enough for 2021?

The Understand the Bible Christmas message for 2021!

Taking a break

I’ll be taking a break from Understand the Bible over the Christmas period, and will return in the New Year. I am planning to start a new series on the Ten Commandments, to follow on from the Apostle’s Creed which finished last month.

I feel that this year has been a good year for Understand the Bible, thank you to everyone who has helped by watching, subscribing, commenting, sending encouraging messages, and so on. I pray that 2022 will be a good year and that the Word of God may continue to spread and flourish (Acts 12:24).

Looking for more?

Last year’s Christmas message is still available to watch, Whose fault is 2020?

All Christmas content on Understand the Bible is under the Christmas category. This includes the recent series on being ready for the return of Christ (which is also available on a YouTube playlist).
