Last Professional Priest

Some people are all thumbs. They can’t fix anything that’s broken in the house. They don’t even know what tools to use. Well, many of them don’t even have a toolbox that’s worth mentioning. But some others can fix anything. It’s as if they were born with a bag of tools in their hands. We […]

Jesus brings change

Change is part of life. Just look back at your childhood. We didn’t have screens. We didn’t even have a TV. To be honest, my dad said it was from the devil and that he would never buy one. When he accepted a call to a new congregation, the previous one gave him a big […]

Dust off your knowledge of Jesus

Nowadays it’s easy and cheap, and in some cases even free, to study further. I decided to register for one of these online courses. Since we’re recording sermons now, I decided to do a videography course. I have to say that the course, which runs over 32 weeks, is filled with information and I’m learning […]

Forever

Look, I’m going to use a simple example now, but I hope it will knock the last nail in well and deep so that us ordinary people can understand.

Mindful about Jesus

A friend of mine told me about a course he did to help him see the small things in life again. We become so used to things that we forget to look around us and then we miss out a lot. We live in a trance and life slips by unnoticed. The course, which is […]

The readers’ feedback left me speechless: THIS IS SHOCKING!! I am going to pray for these people today. You always pray […]

Last and final sacrifice

(Read Hebrews 7:1-25, preferably in The Message, to get a good idea of the Old Testament priests.) The priests in the Old Testament basically had two functions. The first was to be the middleman or mediator between God and the Israelites. The priest talked to God and then conveyed His message to the people. In […]

Running ahead

We travelled to the Richtersveld with friends. The scenery was awesome. The high mountains and jagged rocks left us speechless. A normal car could hardly negotiate the uneven roads. We crawled slowly over the rocks and dongas. One of the vehicles towed a small trailer. The driver asked us over the radio to let him […]

Jesus did it all

We all have a different picture of Jesus. For some, that picture is stuck on the baby in the manger in Bethlehem. Some see Jesus as the child playing at the entrance to the synagogue. Some see Jesus as He walked the dusty streets here on earth. The way you see Jesus affects his impact […]

You’re a beneficiary

Long before her death, my mom one day called all of us children together at her house. She had decided that everything that would eventually end up being part of her estate would find an owner that day. So, all of us, from the eldest to the youngest, took turns at choosing something, which was […]
