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...

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...

Bind in the Body

‘Bind us together with cords that cannot be broken, Bind us together Lord… Bind us together in Love’. Is the song we sometimes sing at church to end the service. I was meditating and reading 1 Corinthians 12 when I began to understand that we as a church are made up of people from diverse...

Tough Love – Part 2

I want to begin the article with tough love is simply love with discipline. It’s so important to be honest with ourselves, to reflect and ask ourselves probing questions. Am I the infant who cries for things from God and then gets frustrated when I don’t get what I want, when I want? I answered...

Tough Love – Part 1

We’ve all been there, sitting in a bus, a train, or walking around the supermarket when we’ve heard the desperate cry of an infant, “I want it now!” At times the person looking after them takes no notice, other times the person gives into their request. Now I know if that was me at that...

Different Levels of Love – Part 1

It was interesting to see the transformation as I walked into a supermarket. All the aisles where red, flowers almost at every corner and chocolate boxes as far as your eyes could see. For some valentine’s day is as far as their love can go, a card with a few flowers thrown in and maybe...

A Love That Lasts

Whenever I’m shopping for a high-priced product I always ask myself: ‘Will this last?’ / ‘Is it worth x amount of pounds?’ / ‘Am I going to regret buying this?’ / ‘Will I need to spend a ton of money getting the product repaired?’ That’s a lot of questions! Longevity is important in all spheres...

Reflecting the Light from Within

Happy, Happy, Happy New Year to you and my prayer is that in this New Year you will walk closer and closer each day with our Lord. Nowadays I never get tired of hearing an aunty or uncle commenting on how much I look like my father or mother. One person would say… “you have...

A Warm Welcome

We have entered into a season of festivities as we draw ever closer to the end of year. Usually for many these last weeks before 2015 will be spent looking for gifts or organising dinners or spending time with the family. A lot of us will do a stock take and ponder over the year...

The Fear of God Rooted in Love

The title of this article is definitely something to ponder upon. The Bible says in 1 John 4:18 (NIV) “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” Other versions go on to say that...
