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

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!

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

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...

Wait for the Promise

In life, we have a choice every day to live by faith; to hold fast to what God has spoken or to make other plans. To choose Ishmael or to wait for Isaac. This conflict can arise in many ways. We can often have friendships in our lives that are not productive. These may be...

Good Soil

I have read the Parable of the Sower many times, in fact, it’s one of my favourites, found in the 13th chapter of Matthew. And every time I read it, I assume I am good soil. Not the best soil of course, as I am not a missionary, evangelist or anything like that. I figure...

Jealousy

Jealousy

Jealousy is a dangerous thing that can catch us all off guard. Let me speak from my own life; it has caught me off guard many times. I would not have considered myself an envious or jealous person, but the Bible does say, “Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.”...

Love and Identity

Love and Identity

While reading John 17, I was struck by the confidence that Jesus had in his Father’s love. In the passing moments of my own life, I ask myself, if I am that confident in my Father’s love for me? For Jesus, it was so evident and tangible, that it had become His identity. He knew...

Delight and Counsel

Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors (Psalm 119:24) The Word of God is living and active. Recently, I have been reminded of the necessity of God’s Word in order to walk in His way, along this narrow path. It is our daily bread. Just like food, the Word of God is both...
