2016 Advent – Peace

“Gory to God in the Highest and on earth peace on who His favour rests.” God desires we have peace with Him. A peace that assures us His favour indeed rests on us.  In our second Sunday of Advent we consider the peace that becomes available to us by the arrival of Jesus, the Prince of […]

2016 Advent Hope

When mankind sinned against God, His first action was to step in and offer hope. Immediately. The first words out of His mouth were literally a curse on our enemy and a promise that a future son would finish the job and set us free (Genesis 3:14-15). The entire Bible is the historical unfolding of […]

Sovereignty In Our Evangelism

If asked, it is easy for Christians to acknowledge that God’s authority runs deeper than we give it credit for. But if asked just how deep it runs, it is harder to answer. If asked how that authority has equipped us perfectly for the time and place in which we live, for the purpose God has […]

Joy Of Making Disciples

There is not only joy in being a disciple, there is joy in making disciples. Looking at Jesus, John and Paul we see a pattern of disciple-making that is in itself joyful. John writes so that “our joy may be complete”, and Paul writes to his church that he is “overflowing with joy”, and the […]

Power To Change

What is at the root of change in the Christian life? The bible is clear that there is no penance, behaviour, work, law, personal goodness or conduct that is possible (or required) to receive God’s gift of salvation. God’s satisfaction rests in the work of Jesus on the cross and our trust (faith) that it is […]

The Great Commission

We cannot change a person’s heart. We cannot absolve their sin, impart to them any grace, or offer them salvation. We cannot make anyone a disciple – only God can do that. To make disciples is an impossible mission for us. And yet in Matthew 28-18-20 this is the mission Jesus gives his church. Making […]

Pattern Of Godly Living

In Philippians chapter 3 the Apostle Paul leaves us an encouraging message. He isn’t perfect, and neither will we be… but the race is worth running. More than worth it for present joy and future prize. Paul shows us that discipleship is more than just a pattern of sound teaching, of right knowledge. It is […]

Pattern Of Sound Words

“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.” (John 17:13 (NIV)). Jesus said that about His disciples, us. He spoke words, truth, propositions, facts, into the world so that we could have […]

Purpose Of Age

What possible good comes  from growing old? Is there something about age that could be of value, something to treasure? Even Solomon was pretty pessimistic calling old age the “evil days” and “clouds returning after rain.” Not very encouraging. But even in Solomon’s pessimism there is a surprising hope, and the Apostle Paul illuminates that hope in his […]
