A Matie in an accident

One day as I was driving home I came upon a dilapidated car stuck in the middle of the road. It couldn’t move and I could see the student had no idea what to do. And then I saw an enormous refuse truck coming down the road too, quite fast. I could see that the […]

“I have nowhere to go”

We’re spending some time on the crux of the Gospel. All of us have a responsibility to spread this message of salvation. All of us do it in different ways. I just have to share this comic story about Johan with you: My wife and I have been involved with a homeless man who drinks […]

Death is to sleep in Jesus

Do you sometimes wonder what life hereafter will be like? Will the streets really be made of gold? Will we recognise one another? Will we be able to play golf? Although we don’t have all the answers, we have hope, because we know that Jesus has already passed through death for us. And in fact, […]

Passionate life

Getting what you deserve

One day I watched a movie about a man who had been sentenced to death. Death by electric chair. Getting what he deserved, because this man was a murderer. I wondered how you would feel if you had taken another person’s life? What goes through your mind when you see that person’s life leaving their […]

Saved from the claws of death

People don’t like it when we talk about the devil. It’s as if people are afraid to talk about him. Afraid that if we talk about him, we’ll leave an opening for him. But I think it is important that we know exactly who and what our biggest enemy is. I still remember my army […]
