God saves you – that’s enough

Suddenly, a strange verse pops up. As if Paul reconsiders. He knows he has taught Timothy so much already, and maybe he has talked a bit too much – maybe it is a bit too much for Timothy to take in with everything he had already written to him. Therefore, this verse: 9You can count […]

Jesus builds a bridge

The crux of our faith is so simple: … 5that there’s one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us—Jesus, 6who offered himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free. That is the best news that we, as sinners, could ever hear. We simply cannot get […]

What’s going to happen on the last day

I’m a very good-natured person and I don’t like confronting people. I will rather impair myself than confronting others. But sometimes we need to deal with others and tell them the truth. That may save their lives. God’s Word sometimes confronts the readers and it does not play around. Especially those who are on the […]

Talk to others – it may be their answer

I still remember those days I was involved in the business world. Something was always happening. As soon as you thought today is the day to catch up on some work that is behind, something happened that gobbled up your time.

“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 […]

Firm knowledge protection

The other day my son came running in, looking very funny. He had my army helmet (which we called a bucket) on his head and the straps that hold the helmet firmly on your head were swinging loose. His head is far too small for the helmet and he had to swing his whole body […]

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 […]
