God's word in today's world

God’s love is not lip service

Sometimes life is hard. It’s just one curveball after the other and it feels as if life is falling apart piece by piece. Have you been there? I suspect so. You may be there right now. I’ve been there. When I was planning my fourth book launch a while ago, a couple of curveballs came […]

Go-to-heaven card

When I was a child, Monopoly was one of my most favourite board games. We could play for hours to acquire the most property. The main objective was to own a couple of hotels on Eloff Street. With hard work, good planning and a bit of luck here and there you could eventually become a […]

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 […]

A paintball for Jesus

Danie repeats what his Sunday School teacher said to him years ago: “Some will miss out on heaven, because it was too easy to get there.” Unfortunately, that is true. Some people think sin being written off is too easy to be true. Sometimes we have to bring what Jesus did for us closer to […]

Watch out, it’s war

Are you ready for Jesus’ coming?

We’ve become used to high walls and electric fences and security guards day and night in our country. People simply walk into your house and take what they want. My friend’s daughter was home alone. She is very aware of security and keeps the alarm switched on at night. When she woke up the next […]

Striking in its simplicity

It upsets me when men of God mess up. They say and do what they want and it seems as if people follow them blindly. But what they preach is so completely untrue. Like the pastor who sprayed people in the face with the insect spray, Doom, to chase away demons. And yes, we all […]

Birds of a feather

An English proverb says: Birds of a feather flock together. In Afrikaans, we say ons dam se ganse (the geese that belong in our dam). I suspect this is true for all of us. We choose friends that are more or less like us. We choose schools for our children where the education is the […]

Think, talk and act like Jesus

I look up to my mentor. I wish I could be more like him. He does so much for everybody. When he is with you, all his attention is focused on you, making you feel so special. When he talks about God, he speaks with authority. You can ask him virtually everything about the Bible […]
