When other people breathe easier

Francois (not his real name) sent me the following message: On radio a psychologist used the following expression. It really made me think: “Be the kind of person who make people breathe easier when they walk away from you.” The world outside puts so much pressure on us! People struggle to keep standing under all […]

Professional Christians

One of the best mountain bike teams in the world stayed in our house for some time while practicing for the Cape Epic mountain bike tour. I was simply astounded by all that I saw in the garage. Against one wall, wheels stood stacked together. Then there was a special table filled with tools. Boxes […]

Love finds and acts

If I ask you to describe God with one word, what would it be? For me, there is only one: Love. God is love. God overflows with love. God cannot stop Himself from sharing love with everybody. He has so much love for every lost person that He was prepared to sacrifice his son so […]

Not in vain

Everywhere Paul and his companions went people’s lives were changed. 1For yourselves, brethren, know our entrance in unto you, that it was not in vain (King James Version).

Persist, endure, keep on

In between the greetings Paul recalls a name: Archippus. But Paul doesn’t send him greetings.

Do your very best.” […]

Dump children and so on…

Paul meant a lot to many people. Just think what he is still doing for us hanging on his every word nearly 2 000 years later. And although he was in jail then, he knew he still had a lot to do. 25So I plan to be around a while, companion to you as your […]

Sing and do say thank you

Ephesians 5:6-18 When we moved from the farm into town, I was not used to having people living so close to me. I didn’t realise how far sound could travel. I loved pushing my big hifi’s volume button far into the red. Later on my wife walked down the street to hear how far the […]

Love is…

Scripture Ephesians 5:1-5 One morning I decided to intercede for those people who send prayer requests to me. There are 52. I was deeply moved by all the hurt and need out there. Now I know why the intercessors say they sometimes start crying while putting people and their suffering before the Lord. From the […]
