The Baton

I like watching athletics on TV in particular the 4x 100 metre relay race. It tells me about being in the right place at the right time. The team that wins the race is often the one who has run the fastest and mastered the art of releasing and receiving. If a runner doesn’t release the baton to their team member in the right zone, then that whole team will be disqualified. If the baton is released not quickly enough in the right zone, then......

Love Transforms

“Love endures (God’s kind of love) with patience and serenity, love is kind…” 1 Corinthians 13:4 (AMP) Every day I work alongside people who find themselves at the fringes and margins of society because of their mental illness. For most of these people, living with a mental illness means living in isolation from others throughout much of their lives due to the social stigma associated with the illness. The world, for them, is a very lonely place indeed. Sometimes the only social contact a person......

Merry Christmas to you all!!!

It is with joy that I declare “Glory to God in the highest and on earth Peace, goodwill toward men!” As we celebrate the moment in history of humanity when the Saviour of the whole world Jesus Christ was born, may we not forget the reason for the season. Jesus came to save us from sins. This is the time of the year that everyone acknowledge the birth of our Saviour whether they confess Him personally or not and my prayer is that you encounter......

Remember

It is summer season and the time of year that we have so many Christian activities going on in this part of the world, as we try to take advantage of the weather. The challenge we face is the change of weather itself! The global weather problem is on our shore and it is amazing how summer feels like autumn. As believers in Jesus Christ, especially those of us that have hope in His return or rather in calling us to meet Him in the air (Rapture), let us not forget the......

Are You Progressing or Kept Waiting for a Moment

Welcome to a new season my friends. A season that speaks of progress and advancement for some and waiting for others. Throughout the summer break many people travelled in and out of the country and as a result we all don’t know who is a student going on holiday or those who are ordinary travellers. We do not know those who are running their businesses as self-employed or even employed. We do not know those who are in ministry as full time as we all meet at the airport. There seems to......

Who is my neighbour

“But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”. Luke 10:29 (NIV) Jesus gave a great example in the parable of the Good Samaritan of exactly who are our neighbour is. It’s a question that I have been contemplating and asked myself over the last month as I travel each day around the hustle and bustle of an ever busy London, a city that seems to never sleep. Truly Monday mornings are frantic – trains and buses are jam packed with people squashed together like sardines......

Is Your Friend Jonathan or Jonadab

With a friend like Jonathan, your passage to the throne is secured but with a friend like Jonadab, you ticket to destruction is guaranteed! “But Amnon had a friend whose name was Jonadab the son of Shimeah, David’s brother. Now Jonadab was a very crafty man” 2 Samuel 13:3. There are many definitions for the word “friend”. It means associate, companion, fellow or neighbour. This is a person you give your attention to in a special way. This is a person you share your heart with. This is someone you receive counsel......

How Much Have You Spent

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son…”  John 3:16 (The Living Bible). Not only did God send His very best, but Christ His Son came to save us from our sins, reconcile us back to God and give us life in all of its abundance (John 10:10). Out with the old and in with the new but how have we been spending the new life God has given to us? Have we been doing the same old things that have kept us bound? During the month......

Do Not Try To Win...Just Live!

Ladies and gentlemen, there is a winner’s instinct in all of us, whether we like to admit it or not. We love winning and we love to be on the cutting edge. As important as it is (and there is nothing wrong with it), the process of winning and being on the cutting edge is worth looking into and can sometimes be questionable. Some of us like to show others that we are knowledgeable and along the line, this can become our Achilles heel. WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVE FOR WINNING? Why do......

Bind in the Body

‘Bind us together with cords that cannot be broken, Bind us together Lord… Bind us together in Love’. Is the song we sometimes sing at church to end the service. I was meditating and reading 1 Corinthians 12 when I began to understand that we as a church are made up of people from diverse backgrounds, cultures and nations brought under one banner, the banner of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Bible says in Galatians 3:28 that “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there......
