Ahh… Sabbath!

Any fans of The Young and The Restless among us? Or maybe you’re just like me – late middle-aged and restless… or perhaps old and restless! In any case, we are all sure part of a restless society these days! For many of us, activity and work just never seem to stop. We can find…

A Good, Good Father!

God names Himself, Father. One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say: ‘Father,… hallowed be your name…’ (Lk 11:1,2). This can create a crisis for…

Nowhere To Run Baby…

Psalm 139 tells us that there is nowhere on earth that we can go to escape the presence of God, if we were to go to the ends of the earth (v9), or even ‘hide’ ourselves in the grave (v8). What’s more, it tells us that God knows everything about us, every word we say,…

Sometimes We Crash

Sometimes – perhaps even many times – we ‘crash’- quite literally, as some of us have found recently (including ‘yours truly’), finding other vehicles getting a little too ‘intimate’ with our own! (…yes, it was the other vehicle!) But we have many different types of ‘crashes’ in life: a health ‘crash’, with unexpected illness –…

Just As If I’d Never Sinned

Because of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God justifies us as a gift, and counts us to be as righteous as Jesus is Himself! (Ro 3:22-24) If that’s what it means to be justified, then that means it is just-as-if-I’d-never-sinned! Not that I have never sinned – for none of us are…

At Home with the Holy Trinity

God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are not three stone statues parked in heaven! The Father loves His Son, gives His Son all the good gifts that He has, and praises and delights in, Him! (Mt 3:17; Jn 17:24), freely and joyfully gives all that He has for the Father – even His very…

Of Faith.. & Fireworks

I like fireworks! It’s just something about the flashes of colour and light, brilliant effects, explosions, and the smell of burning gunpowder in my nostrils, that ‘does it for me’ every time! :)) I like to think that God created fireworks (…if you think about it long enough… the chemicals are all a part of…

Psalm 47: 1-11

Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. For the Lord most high is awesome, the great King over all the earth. He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet. The Joy Of Submission. God is the powerful King of the whole earth and is subduing people to His…

A Big, Big Family

Jesus taught that God and His kingdom are present and working in the world secretly (Mk 4:26-29). He also taught that we can never tell who in the world may respond in faith to God and enter His kingdom (Mt 13:24-30; Jn 10:16). God offers the gift of His kingdom to every member of the…
