1Pe 4v7-8 – The end of the world

Jesus’ disciples asked him what it would be like in the last days before he returned. He said there would be “wars and rumours of wars…Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places” (Matthew 24:6-7). This is a picture of our world today! But more… Continue reading 1Pe 4v7-8 – The end of the world

Col 3v12 – How are you different?

I had this challenging thought the other day – “In my day-to-day life, how do I live differently from someone who doesn’t know Jesus?”. We often talk about actions speaking louder than words, but do I live a life that mirrors Jesus? When I’m late, and a taxi cuts in front of me, and now… Continue reading Col 3v12 – How are you different?

Luk 10:36 – Go and do likewise

“The Good Samaritan” is a well-known parable. It is clear and easy to understand – be like the Samaritan and show love, empathy, and kindness to others. Simple right?

Mat 5v44-45 – Not a normal love

“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vows “mighty vengeance” against Hamas“(BBC). “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Jesus – Matthew 5:44). It’s hard to comprehend these two sentences together. After the violence perpetrated on innocent people in Israel, our natural response is vengeance. But God says he is the… Continue reading Mat 5v44-45 – Not a normal love

A popular relationship advice phrase is: “Never stop dating your partner”.

Joh 17v26 – God of love

John 17 is one of my favourite chapters in the Bible. It is Jesus’ prayer to our Heavenly Father just before his crucifixion. We read Jesus’ final words just before his betrayal in the garden of Gethsemane in John 17:26 – “And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the… Continue reading Joh 17v26 – God of love

2Co3v17 – Finding Freedom

Three values that guide my life are faith, family, and freedom. While not all choose faith, and many prioritise finance or fame over family, most value freedom. Yet, can ultimate freedom exist without faith? You have the freedom to strum the strings of a guitar in any way you like, but this doesn’t mean you… Continue reading 2Co3v17 – Finding Freedom

Gen 22:12 – Complete Trust

Abraham was 100 years old when he had his first child with Sarah. What a gift. However, when God asked Abraham to offer Issac, his precious son, as a sacrifice, Abraham set out to follow God’s command completely. He demonstrated complete trust in God, willing to give up what was most precious to Him as… Continue reading Gen 22:12 – Complete Trust
