Back to basics

One night I was staying over in George with a friend of mine. He told me that the Lord had spoken to him in a dream. I was amazed as he described to the smallest detail how the Lord had revealed the next business deal to him. Almost a google map of the land where […]

Live from love and live love

There was a time in my life when I also wore a WWJD (What would Jesus do) armband. If I remember correctly, I wore it for more than a year. I can’t remember whether it worked or not, but at least I tried. I really wish I could act like Jesus in every situation, but […]

Powerful the power inside us

I struggle. I struggle to live within the will of God every moment of the day. I struggle to remain calm when things don’t go the way I want them to. I struggle to keep my mouth shut and not to say anything when someone does a stupid thing in front of me. I struggle […]

The Holy Spirit and sin are not bedfellows

When we take the wheel

Are there some things that you know you are doing that are wrong? Again and again you promise God that you will never do it again, but before you know it you’ve failed once more. How many times have you promised yourself never to enter a porn site again and the next night you’re sitting […]

At the Academy people are trained to become butlers. The guys look really grand standing there smiling in the photographs in their penguin suits, starched white shirts, […]

God does all the work

I get a lot of questions about the Holy Spirit. As the Holy Spirit moves quietly and does not overpower our lives, some people are sometimes uncertain whether they do indeed have the Spirit and what else they have to do to receive the Holy Spirit. In this part, Paul is talking to the Galatians […]

Who’s driving your life?

Paul is struggling with the Galatian people. Initially, it went really well, but he’s feeling discouraged. They accepted Jesus as Saviour and they received the Holy Spirit. But then they listened to people who don’t believe in Jesus and chose to become enslaved to the law again. 1You crazy Galatians! Did someone put a hex […]

The Spirit is strong

Click here to go to the Scripture: 2 Corinthians 6:1-13 As winter starts in South Africa, a different kind of winter descends over the labour force, because it’s strike season. People are dissatisfied with their circumstances and start striking to make their voices heard. Not a nice season in our country. Paul’s time also had […]

Letting off steam in the steam room

I was sitting in the steam room, exhausted after a good workout. Satisfied with my daily exercise and sweating out the last bit of weekend excess from my body. I don’t know if it works, but it makes me feel good sitting there sweating for doing nothing. As I was sitting there two young female […]
