Dominoes falling over or not

I’m always amazed at people who can sit for hours setting out dominoes in a specific pattern so that when they tap the first one, it falls on the next domino, starting a chain reaction that eventually knocks over all the dominoes in the long sequence. For days, people set out thousands and thousands of […]

A Spotless Life

Why is it that when we get something for free, we often do not appreciate it and then waste it. Almost like we do with God’s grace. People will easily say: Oh, I’ll just confess my sin and say I’m sorry and my sin will be forgiven. That’s not right. That’s wasting it and God […]

Mouse, elephant, eagle and God

I was just thinking about the joke about the mouse and the elephant walking across the bridge. About halfway across the mouse said to the elephant: “We’re making this bridge boom, aren’t we!” What a bold little mouse. That’s how we have to walk through the world. We must be bold and must know that […]

Push against the wind

My friend from Durbanville calls me up. He is talking to a friend and they are wondering why Christians have to struggle so. Yes, they have enough to eat and drink and they are grateful for that, but sometimes it seems as if life is simply too hard. You struggle to keep everything going. So, […]

Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear

Verse 11 still has a lot to teach us. This one verse contains seven major sermons. First, we heard that we need to keep away from the wrong things (that little voice inside telling us what that is). The Modern English version of the Bible says we must 11 … follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, […]

Courage rising up

I experienced times in my life where I came close to giving up. Everything was against me. Nothing was going right. One challenge after the other without letting up. No matter what I tried, nothing went right. At times like these you start asking questions like what are you actually doing on earth and won’t […]

Overflowing trust and love

It’s good to know that we belong to God. We’ve been commanded to stay away from the wrong things. We’ve heard that we need to put all our energy into living in a way that will make God say: Well done. We hear it. We know it. We know it’s the right thing to do, […]

A taxi driver making the right choice

Many children of God miss the point by thinking that they have to try their best not to sin. Every morning when they get up, they pray hard that they won’t be trapped by the wily world and that they will remain standing against the stormy winds of evil. And when they get home from […]

Pre-emergent sin-killer

Bradley helped by giving me this simple picture of sin: As sinner, you can compare yourself to a pig and sin is the mud. And as we know, pigs like rolling around in the mud. That is the condition of the sinful nature. When we’re saved, however, we get a new nature and that is […]

The bus driver will stop for you

There’s this cute story about a little boy waiting on the sidewalk for the bus. He was very patient and quietly stood there waiting. A man came past and said: “Young man, if you’re waiting for the bus, you’ll have to go and wait at the next corner. That’s where the bus picks up passengers. You’re […]
