God's word in today's world

For every action, a reaction, except when it comes to God

Many things happen in our lives, but we can’t remember everything. I suspect that if we remembered everything, the hard drive in our brain would fill up quickly. Fortunately, we only remember those things that make a significant impact in our lives. The really major stuff. Beautiful things, but also those that aren’t so good. […]

Another chance

We meet another one of Paul’s friends who helped to preach the gospel. His name is Onesimus. His story did not have a good start. Originally, he was Philemon’s worker, but somewhere along the way he absconded. He was just a lay about, but then he met Paul and the message of salvation turned Onesimus’ […]

Jesus tells of the man who owed the king R20 million. The man was bankrupt and couldn’t repay the money. The king wanted to throw him in jail, but he begged and begged, and the king’s heart softened towards him and he wrote off all his debt. (Maybe I should go and tell this story […]

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 […]

Without baggage

There wasn’t much hope left after man fell into sin. Sin caused hostility between God and man. As a result, man was destined for eternal fire. It’s still the same today. Sin is still all around us. We’re attached and tempted to do what is wrong around every corner. Just take this example. How quickly […]

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 – […]
