This week John Crowther from Fresh Hope (a Churches of Christ NSW initiative) shares about the work and impact of Fresh Hope on those students taking part in the program and those they meet. He also shares that the deeper you understand who you are and how much love and grace has been given to you the more impact you will have on those around you.

Jason Harrison from Generation Fire speaks on being righteous and pure before God the right way. How do we become what the Bible says is “the new man”. In a life which is continually running in a cycle of sin and shame wondering where is the freedom that is promised, let this bring hope that it is possible to leave it behind and enter into the promised new life.
This week Ian Allen shares on having the courage to face the most difficult battle of all, the battle within. Do we have the courage to look at our own selves and the consequences of our own decisions?
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Ian Allen continues his teaching on the Armour of God. If you think you know this passage, check this lesson.
In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword* of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Eph 6:16,17. NIV)
*Sword: Pronounce: makh’-ahee-rah: a large knife, used for killing animals and cutting up flesh (as opposed to a long-sword).
