Who is my neighbour

“But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”. Luke 10:29 (NIV) Jesus gave a great example in the parable of the Good Samaritan of exactly who are our neighbour is. It’s a question that I have been contemplating and asked myself over the last month as I travel...

Is Your Friend Jonathan or Jonadab

With a friend like Jonathan, your passage to the throne is secured but with a friend like Jonadab, you ticket to destruction is guaranteed! “But Amnon had a friend whose name was Jonadab the son of Shimeah, David’s brother.

How Much Have You Spent

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son…”  John 3:16 (The Living Bible). Not only did God send His very best, but Christ His Son came to save us from our sins, reconcile us back to God and give us life in all of its abundance (John 10:10). Out with...

Problem, What Problem

At a time when it is easy to be deceived, we need to look to Christ more than ever to establish the truth. Have you noticed how easy it is for lies to be accepted as truth and how easy it is for error to be established? We live as if God does not see...

Weight, oh weight

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy...
