Do it differently this time …

“So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty,” Zechariah 4:6.

Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained

“O Lord, God of my master, Abraham,” he prayed. “Please give me success today, and show unfailing love to my master, Abraham,” Genesis 24:12 How has 2017 turned out for you so far?

“O God, break the teeth in their mouths; tear out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord!” Psalm 58:6 I was enjoying a beautiful, sunny afternoon, after catching some spectacular waves one-day last year.

Only One Way to God in an Age of Tolerance?

This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people.” 1 Timothy 2:3-6 Many people today reject the exclusive claims of Christianity, which to them in […]

Are you in the same boat as the disciples?

“And the men marvelled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” Matthew 8:27  Over the three years that Jesus lived with and taught his disciples, they very rarely understood who Jesus really was because they kept interpreting Jesus’ actions through their own desires and ideas. Their desire and idea, that […]
