The House Hunter

When a person is looking to buy a property, it is common sense that the potential buyer to take a look at the property before they buy it. They may choose to view it a few times, just to make sure that it is exactly what they want before taking ownership. They would look into every room of the property, looking for anything that they may like or dislike. Once they take ownership then the new owners set about putting their mark or stamp on the property. The same can be said......

Amazing God with Amazing Wonders

It’s amazing to know that we have just ended four months in the year 2016! For us as a church, it’s been an amazing year of open doors so far. Opportunities are opening up for God’s people. Opportunity to be Christ’s witness wherever we are. It sure is harvest time. Opportunities to excel in our spheres of influence. An effective door was opened for us in April, where we experienced the mighty Hand of God to save and deliver, in the nation of Sierra Leone. After years of sufferings and pain brought......

Passover - A Love Story

The month of April was filled with so many blessed dates. It’s dear to me due to both my parents’ birthdays being in this month and directly after each other. As well as their birthdays, we celebrated the Queen Elizabeth’s birthday (turning a blessed 90 years old!), St George’s day and the Passover as well as many other important dates. Today I want to turn your attention to the celebration of the Passover, a Jewish holiday which occurs in April lasting seven days, from 23rd April and to 30th April. The Hebrew......

The Cart Before the Horse

If you or I were visiting a farm, we would expect to see many things. Maybe some sheep eating grass, cows being milked, pigs eating their swill. But if you saw a cart being pushed by a horse, you would probably take a second look. Why would you take a second look? Because the cart should go behind the horse and not the other way round. So why is this important you may ask? At the time of writing this article I was going through some difficult professional challenges. Then the Lord......

I doubt it…

In this world of conflicting ideas and philosophies where many do not acknowledge the Lordship of Christ, or even the existence of God, Christians may struggle with doubt and unbelief. It is not just an issue faced by the young; in our workplaces, places of study and communities, we are all bombarded by world views, ideologies and opinions that conflict with our faith in God and the choice we make to build our lives His way. There is a divide between the flesh and the spirit, the material world that we see......

Godly Direction

The car satellite navigation system is an amazing piece of technology. All you need to do before setting off on your journey is to type in the name of the road or street where you are going and then type in your postcode or zip code. Then in a few moments you have your journey planned ahead of you. Before these devices existent, if you wanted to get from one town to another, we would have to get a road map and make notes of any turnings or exits. It also helped......

Loyalty

…a strong feeling of support or allegiance… Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty. I know, you probably haven’t heard the word for a long time. Let me think… That’s right, the last time I heard the word ‘loyalty’ thrown about was whilst I was watching Sky Sports News. It must have been during the Christmas period, a certain player had said he wanted more ambition and more trophies with another club. He felt his current club had not won enough, even though they had won over 4 trophies in the last 5 years. Some will......

Open Eyes To See And Enter The Open Door!

We are at a time in life again where history is for those who make them and not those who talk about history of others. With events happening all around the world, the world is looking for those who have solutions to their problems and I believe where there is gross darkness, the light shine brighter. Hence I present to you the word of the Lord that says, “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can......

Serving God with a Heart of Pride

Recently, I received a phone call from someone I consider a very close friend. The call started the usual way our conversations do, checking if the other was okay, catching up about the past week’s events and challenges. However, the conversation soon took a more serious tone. My friend began to recount an episode that had happened the previous week. As a result, it had been weighing heavy on his mind and he needed to share it with me. He had been extremely hurt by......
