God's word in today's world

All-out action

We must hear about the forgiveness of sin and what Jesus did for us on the cross again and again and in different ways so that we can really experience it. Every moment of the day we must know what Jesus did and then live victoriously. 15He stripped all the spiritual tyrants in the universe […]

Tear up those overdrafts

People are so used to having accounts – we actually love accounts. I don’t know if this is because it makes us feel important to open our wallets and pick and choose which card to use. Visa card, Master card, Clicks card, Woollies card or Edgars card. Name it, we have it. And that’s why […]

In and out the casket at our funeral

In Colossians 2, Paul tells the people clearly and persistently about Jesus’ death on the cross and what it means for sin. We are going to look at this subject a few times. And it is good to do it, because it is impossible to fully understand this wonderful thing that Christ had done for […]

Humbled – from Prince to man

Calling in reinforcements for the right road

How do you live right? Nowadays right and wrong are so interwoven that you hardly know which way to go. This struggle to know where the line between right and wrong is, is illustrated very well in this story: One day a daughter wanted to do something her mother really did not approve of – […]
