Jesus, the light of the world

For God so loved you that He gave His Son, so that if you believe in His Son you will not perish but have everlasting life. If you believe in Him you are not condemned; but if you don’t believe you are condemned already… And this is why: the light has come into the world, but you love darkness rather than light, because your deeds are evil and you are afraid to be exposed. John 3:16‭-‬20 paraphrased Disagree? Do you…

Why would I tell you the truth? – In the words of Satan

“In The Words (of Satan)” Lyrics by The Arrows | from the album The Arrows 2007 Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you, one, the only, the father of lies! “I’ve been here since the beginning know exactly how you work I know all of your cravings know what makes you go berserk Been lying from the start just to make you play a part in my infinite rebellion against the Father God I hate everything he is and…

Finding Treasure – Christian Book

I have found many revelations in this beautiful christian book, of the width and the depth in witch God takes the time to guide our hand and our feet a step at a time. In the fears, and the tears, in the joys and the sorrows, using the time to teach us through our success and failures. So I can only say that if you were to open your heart you too would be able to hear, taste and see that the Lord is good.
Unity

A United House

We are called to walk in the unity that was forged on the cross. If you are like me, you can probably think of relationships that are in discord. How can we pursue unity in the Church? This question confronts our own hearts seeking to build our own houses. This is that horrid sin nature. If judgment begins at the household of God (1 Peter 4:17), then we should seek to be a household united for the glory of the Father.
A prayer to the Father

Preparation Through Prayer – for Leatherhead

The Acts of the Apostles should perhaps be known as The Acts of Jesus and the Holy Spirit through the early church. Jesus enabled and sent them. The Holy Spirit empowered and guided them. They clearly knew their calling and yet they first “devoted themselves to prayer”. Let us pray for the people that God has in Leatherhead (Acts 18:10). Let us ask God to show us where He is already at work and how we can get involved. Let us pray.
Bible reading

Bible reading plans for this year

Have you read through the entire Bible? If so, is Bible reading a habit of yours? I have read the whole Bible every year for about 22 years. It has enriched my soul and has rooted me in truth in times of blessing as well as times of trial. January is a great time to consider this great discipline of the Christian life. But how should we read through the Bible? Do you just start in Genesis and work your way to Revelation?

Trials and Joy

Recently, a cocktail of circumstances caused me to lose my joy. You know how it is, any one of them on their own is tough but manageable, but when they all descend on you, it feels like the perfect storm. In the storm I could look at the horizon, and all I could see was wave after wave. On one particular evening at rush hour (which should really be called ‘park hour’) as I was commuting around the M25, right…

Do We Take God’s Word for Granted?

I was moved to tears watching this 1 minute video. Why? These Chinese Christians have received something that they had hungered after with deep longing. Their expressions and emotions are like those you’d expect from people who had lost their children and had finally found them again, or maybe like those who received life saving medication. What was it that moved them to this profound gratitude and joy? They received their first Bible in a country where Bibles are illegal!…

The Nicene Creed

The Nicene Creed is one of the great confessional declarations made by Christians for several hundred years. Creeds like this remind us that our faith is a shared faith. In our day and age, we want to view everything as personal… it’s my personal faith… I personally believe… personally Jesus is… Although what we believe as Christians is personally impacting it is corporately proclaimed. We are part of a heritage. This heritage reaches back to a group of men given…
