Feel-good Peddlers

Romans 5:1-11 No matter who you are or where you are, you are exposed in one way or another to advertisements, sales pitches and marketing gimmicks of all kinds. These may be direct, indirect or subliminal messages, promising you more joy, more pleasure, more free time and happiness. Yet, as Dr. Bob Moorehead wrote a […]

The True Light

John 1:1-14 Seven hundred years before the birth of Jesus Christ, Isaiah prophesied: “The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.” (Isaiah 60:19) In Luke 1:78, Jesus is […]

The Sin of the Heart

Colossians 3:1-17 Although Jesus condemned all sin and sinfulness, it was the sins of the heart—not of the flesh—that He spoke the harshest against. Why? Ultimately, the seat of all evil is the centre of our inmost motives and intentions. Pride, envy, self-centredness, lack of love, and hypocrisy are the real monsters. It is the […]

Letter from the Postman

One day, the postman delivers a letter to you. Unsure of where it came from, you open it and start reading it. It says… We were friends for many years. We played together, laughed together and shed tears together. We traveled and dreamed together. You helped me when I needed help. You comforted me when […]

The Value of a Single Soul

Acts 8:4-8, 26-40 The success or failure of parades, demonstrations, sports activities, conferences or concerts are usually measured by the number of people who attend. It seems that the larger the number, the more impressed people are by the event. Sadly, this is also true in the spiritual realm. Big churches with large congregations, super […]

Honour Your Father

Father’s Day is on June 19, which will serve to remind us that it is good to honour our fathers. The Bible actually says we should honour our parents all the time. It is not a suggestion but a commandment: “Honour your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land the […]

Remain in Christ

John 15:1-11 Jesus often used familiar objects and examples to explain spiritual mysteries. For example, some of his parables or analogies began with references to bread, light, sheep, doors and so on. In the passage above, He used the example of a vine and its branches. Have you ever wondered why Jesus referred to Himself […]

Hosanna!

Matthew 21:1-11 Jesus came to earth with a mission: to bring salvation to all who would believe in Him and trust Him. We read in John 3:16-18, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. “For God […]

Taking Inventory

Luke 15:11-24 Every business owner knows that there comes a time that he or she must evaluate the progress of the company. Inventory must be taken and profits and losses must be examined. Similarly, the beginning of a new year is a time for us, as individuals, to evaluate and reflect. We pause and take […]

The Virgin Birth of Christ

Isaiah 7:14 – Luke 1:26-38 Many people seem confused about various religious teachings and beliefs. Even among those who claim to be Christians, there are some who have difficulty understanding who Jesus is. I have been asked questions such as: How can Jesus, a human, be God? Wasn’t Jesus born a human being? How can […]
