The Race

It’s easy to get bogged down with things that we keep getting wrong. Whether it is those conversations we keep getting sucked in to at work, laughing along with those inappropriate jokes. It might be chickening out of speaking out against something you know to be wrong, or speaking up for something you know is...

Specks and Planks

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can...

What’s Mine Is Mine

Lessons from the Temptation of Jesus I have recently decided to read through the gospels again. I have been advised by many wise men and women of God that it is always a good thing to reacquaint oneself with the person of Jesus Christ, through these faithful accounts of His life. Early in the gospel...

I doubt it…

In this world of conflicting ideas and philosophies where many do not acknowledge the Lordship of Christ, or even the existence of God, Christians may struggle with doubt and unbelief. It is not just an issue faced by the young; in our workplaces, places of study and communities, we are all bombarded by world views,...

Serving God with a Heart of Pride

[column width=”1/1″ last=”true” title=”” title_type=”single” animation=”none” implicit=”true”] Recently, I received a phone call from someone I consider a very close friend. The call started the usual way our conversations do, checking if the other was okay, catching up about the past week’s events and challenges. However, the conversation soon took a more serious tone. My...

When you Pray

I was in a fellowship recently, where over a period of weeks, we had been discussing and unpacking the reasons behind why we do the things we do in church. One particular week, I remember that we were talking about prayer, and we were asking ourselves what prayer is and isn’t, why we pray at...

The Invitation

During Jesus’ time on earth, the Gospels allow us to see and hear glimpses of Christ’s words and deeds. His words provide vital insight on His character, His ministry and His motivations. In Matthew 11, we read an invitation that Jesus makes to a certain group of people, a group that many of us qualify...

God Is For Us!

Many of us are familiar with the passage of scripture taken from Roman 8:31: “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” The things the Apostle Paul is referring to are outlined clearly in the first 30 verses of Romans 8, which I strongly suggest...

They said what!

But when His own people heard about this, they went out to lay hold of Him, for they said, “He is out of His mind.” And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebub,” and, “By the ruler of the demons He casts out demons.” Mark 3:21-22. Looking at Jesus’ life, He...

Adultery

The writer of Proverbs repeatedly charges his son not to fall prey to the wiles of the adulterous woman, and gives many consequences if he does (Proverbs 2:16, 5:3, 7:5, 23:27). Destruction, death, loss of honour, and poverty are all examples of what can happen if he allows himself to be seduced by this woman...
