You and your debt

God is a doing God. God is a God who keeps his Word. If He decides to do something, He doesn’t throw in the towel at the halfway mark. When He realises how huge the act is and how much it will demand of Him, He doesn’t reconsider and go against his Word. Jesus is […]

The sun rises over everybody

As you go deeper into Africa it seems as if the beauty and colour of the sunrise grow deeper and deeper. Everything looks so much clearer. Everything looks so clean. It’s as if it announces a new beginning. As if yesterday has been blotted out and we are getting a brand-new chance to try again. […]

God’s grace is enough

Many, many times I am amazed by God’s grace. The immensity of God’s grace is simply too awesome for me to understand. How can God love a sinful guy like me, just like that? But even more, how can God take the punishment for all the wrong things I have ever done? And for all […]

In need of pruning

Something about verse 21 bothers me. Even after writing about it a few times, there is still something missing. It’s all very well hearing about how we are a bowl and that God wants to use us right there where we live, work and play. But there is a condition: 21Become the kind of container […]

To be freed from your chains

The town where I live is shocked by a number of murders. It is horrible and I can’t imagine how afraid the victims must’ve been. I simply cannot make sense of how a son could kill his father and mother and then his brother with an axe. He is found guilty and sentenced to many […]

The last move

The international evangelist, Tony Anthony, recounts the legend of Friedrich Moritz August Retzsch’s painting Die Schachspieler (The Chess Players) often known today as Checkmate. In the painting, two chess players sit at a chess board. One is the devil, very confident, and the other, an ordinary man who looks quite anxious. The winner’s prize? The […]

The recovery plan!

This one verse sums up the whole Gospel. When someone asks you what makes Christianity tick, just read them this verse: 10Since the appearance of our Saviour, nothing could be plainer: death defeated, life vindicated in a steady blaze of light, all through the work of Jesus. That’s all, all that the gospel is about. […]

Dancing and free!

Sometimes I wonder why God still wants to have anything to do with me. Really. I feel I simply don’t make it. I pull in the wrong direction too often. I often fail the keep calm test. I’m more lukewarm than hot. I often do wat I know I shouldn’t do. Then I wonder why […]

Just live …

I think we don’t always realise what impact the sin had that occurred in the Garden of Eden. It was the greatest disaster that ever befell mankind. Yes, the world has experienced terrible disasters. All the great wars, all the enormous natural disasters, and much more. However, these disasters affect only those who are involved. […]
