Don’t Be Afraid

Luke 1:30, 2:10; Matthew 1:20 Sometimes God seems to move at high speed, while other times it feels like He is slow in His program. And then there are times when it seems God is not moving at all. In Genesis 1, we read how God said, “Let there be light” and there was light. […]

Share the Good News

Acts 14 There are many people who use the word “Gospel” regularly without really knowing its true meaning.

Power to Live By

2 Peter 1:1-10 Religions in general are based on man-made rules and laws that are placed on the followers of that religion or leader.

The Believer’s Life

1 Peter 1:3-25 Being a member of a Christian church or claiming to be a Christian does not make someone a Christian. A true Christian is a person who not only claims to be a follower of Christ, but one who also lives Christ in his or her earthly life. The kind of life a […]

The Storms We Face

Mark 4:1, 35-41 Life is sometimes compared to stormy seas. Any sailor or fisherman will tell you that storms are part of life for those who are at sea and their families. No matter how hard they try to avoid them, they come. There are storms and difficulties in every human life, whether we like […]

“Hosanna” Today – “Crucify Him” Tomorrow

Matthew 21:1-11 Human history is full of examples of people, or groups of people in a nation or region, going into a frenzy when they think a saviour has finally appeared and is about to change their lives. Their enthusiasm becomes contagious and grows from happiness to adulation. Usually these persons who are considered great […]

God’s Invitation to a Life of Faith

Matthew 14:22-36 The Calm Before the Storm (vss. 15-21) When evening approached, the disciples panicked. It was getting late and the people were hungry.

The Most Effective Tool

1 Corinthians 13 Isn’t it wonderful that the powerful force behind the Gospel of Jesus Christ is love? The most important element in the building of Christ’s church is very simply love – something we often take for granted. Love is the essence of God’s nature; the perfection of human character; the ultimate power in […]
