About

My aim in this blog is to focus on God and his life transforming gospel of grace (Titus 2:11-14).  Through the gospel or ‘great news’ about Jesus I have come to realise that life is about something far greater than me.  The gospel helps me to recognise how much of my life has been self-centred: aiming for my comfort, having selfish motives even for things that seem good. The gospel shows me I am more ungrateful, self-centred and rebellious towards God than I ever realised. Yet at the same time the gospel shows me in Jesus I am loved, forgiven and accepted by God.   Through turning and trusting in this gospel of Jesus, even the insignificant moments of my ordinary life are given new meaning, as I learn to live not for myself, but for the God who made me, died for me and rose again. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading,  cycling, backyard soccer and cricket and watching the Parramatta Eels win grand finals (though it’s been awhile since this happened!) I also enjoy serving as a pastor at Maitland Evangelical Church . Thanks for reading my blog. Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question on any of the posts if you’d like to.

  1. Kevin, this is wonderful. I have not been through all of the sections, but I have covered
    4 or 5 of them. I like the Heidelberg Catechism
    and think this would be good to learn by heart.
    I have just about learned our memory verse, the
    last part is escaping me, but I’ll get there. Whether I will be able to say it in Church is another thing.

    • Thanks Robyn, glad you’ve found it helpful. Encouraging to hear you’re persevering with this terms memory verses too.

  2. Titus 2:11-14 is one of the reasons why I’m now still a Christian.

    • That’s encouraging to hear Haydn, I’ve found those verses profoundly helpful too. May we both continue to grow in God’s grace.
