To make a difference

Nadia (not her real name) tells this story: I want to witness about God’s change in our place of work. On 1 April 2017, I started as supervisor in a new subdivision. This subdivision was going through a difficult period due to sensitive enquiries in the public service. The first day that I called a […]

A tree with strong roots

Paul sends Timothy out into the world to do his work with the following words: 18I’m passing this work on to you, my son Timothy. The prophetic word that was directed to you prepared us for this. All those prayers are coming together now so you will do this well, fearless in your struggle, keeping […]

Your past

Let’s take a step back. To Paul’s BC (before Christ) days. Paul was a fanatical Jew who blindly persecuted the church of that time and who defended it with everything he had. He would’ve done anything to anyone who said anything different from his church. He believed in the law of God and nothing else. […]

Just do it!

Paul was a very interesting character. He was one of those people who lived at full speed. When he was a soldier, he took his job very seriously and left no stone unturned to find and imprison Christians. The same was true of his life after he repented. He gave his all to do everything […]

Just do it

Reps wanted

One of the most difficult appointments I had to do in business was to appoint reps. Those guys who have to go out into the world to sell your product. They must be hugely excited about your product so that they can persuade others to be just as excited and buy your product. It is […]

Done what was expected

Do you know what God expects of you? Do you know what God would like you to do? Or in Bible language: What is your calling? Why are you here on earth? It’s important to know this, because how will we be able to live our calling in the world if we don’t know what […]

Like a mother

Before Paul’s conversion he was a thunder-and-lightning kind of guy. He rode roughshod over everything. He did whatever he had to in any way necessary, and if it meant that people who didn’t want to listen had to be killed, he did it. However, the Paul we get to know in the New Testament is […]

Entrusted to you

Let’s look at verse 4 again: 3-4 God tested us thoroughly to make sure we were qualified to be trusted with this Message. Be assured that when we speak to you we’re not after crowd approval—only God approval. Since we’ve been put through that battery of tests, you’re guaranteed that both we and the Message […]
