Robert’s Midweek Message: “Who do you say I am?”

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.” Mark 8:29 Jesus asked this question to his disciples two thousand years ago, but time does not erode the relevance and significance of this question. Jesus still wants us to individually answer who he is. To answer this question […]

Robert’s Midweek Message: “Arise, my darling”

Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me. “Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom.” Song of Songs 2:15 A good friend of mine back in Cape Town recalls his first morning of being a fresh new missionary to Cape Town. He was […]

When your Struggles are a Sign

Why, O Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? Psalm 10:1 “A goal four minutes from time from Argentina’s left back, Marco Rojo, took Argentina into the second round as they defeated Nigeria 2-1,” Premium Times. So close but so far for Nigeria whose World Cup dreams […]

It is Not Difficult for Fathers to Feel Like Failures

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14 There is something that changes in us forever when we have the privilege of holding a baby that is ours, for the first time. We are faced with the vulnerability and power of the gift of life […]

Robert’s Midweek Message: Stand firm in the Lord

“Therefore, my brothers and sisters, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved.” Philippians 4:1 To my surprise, after high school, I found a passion for history. One particular empire that always stimulates my mind is the Roman Empire. Primarily because of their military tactics and genius. One particular tactic […]

Can we know God’s will?

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is— his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2 What does the pattern of this world refer to? Perhaps to the timeless, recurring question posed to humankind in Genesis, […]

Robert’s Midweek Message: “Self Help Jesus”

“For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” Colossians 1:19-21 Going to a restaurant for a pizza is always great, but there is something special about making a pizza at home. Getting to decide […]

“What shall I do?”

“When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” Acts 2:37 Shirley and I really enjoy spending time at a local restaurant with a lovely view that offers a good cup of coffee and a tasty, economical breakfast. There is […]

Robert’s Midweek Message: “Gracious Church”

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8 During yesterday’s prayer meeting, in which Ephesians 2:8 was the focus verse, I was imagining if the first word that came to mind when thinking of the church is graciousness. For […]

“How holy is your halo?”

“Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.” Acts 10:13 When you read a sentence like this one you have to wonder if being obedient to God’s will is perhaps more difficult for vegetarians than the rest of us carnivores. Certainly for Peter, and therefore for us today, responding to God’s will is […]
