The Blood of Jesus

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13,14 In a world where self-love and living the better life now occupy centre stage, the core truths of the gospel […]

Your Personal Value

We constantly think about value, whether we are shopping, assessing a cause, weighing options, considering a friendship, or even contemplating our own worth. An inferiority complex is near fatal to your life’s destiny, and is very common, even among Christians. What is value? It depends on who you ask! It is said that one man’s […]

You have influence!

Andrew Murray, in his book, The Key to the Missionary Problem, said that every church, no matter how small, can have an international influence through missions. This truth has increased in value since it was written over a hundred years ago, because possibilities have increased. We can now update his statement to read, “every Christian […]

Our Beautiful Scriptures

Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! Romans 11:33 Augustine (354 – 430) made a statement that rings ever true, especially in our day of superficial insight in the Scriptures. “The Old (Testament) is in the New […]

Most of us go to church on Sunday because …that is what Sundays are for? God instructed Israel to set aside the Sabbath – or Saturday, the seventh day – as a holy day. The Sabbath was to be their day of rest and worship. Many Bible believing Christians also worship on Saturday, and honour […]

Prayers with Answers

It seems God is limited by our prayers – that He can do nothing for humanity unless someone asks Him. God does nothing but in answer to prayer; and even those who have been converted to God without praying for it themselves, (which is exceeding rare) were not without the prayers of others. Every new […]

Who do you see?

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own […]

Simple Church or Corporate Giant?

What a difference we find when we study the church in Acts, and the churches of today! How is it that the church moved from simple gatherings in homes to corporate giants built on business principles? Why did we exchange the power of the Holy Spirit for marketing strategies to grow our churches? We even […]

Jesus is Coming Back to Reign!

The Bible details the history of God’s dealing with man since the time of creation right up to the new earth and heaven. When we consider our present place in the history of the world, it is clear that we have reached a point where some kind of reset will have to happen. We are […]
