God's word in today's world

Without a speck of sin

At the beginning of the letter Paul said that he was praying for the readers, the people of Thessalonica. Now he puts it in practice: 23May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our […]

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 […]

“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 […]

For every action, a reaction, except when it comes to God

Many things happen in our lives, but we can’t remember everything. I suspect that if we remembered everything, the hard drive in our brain would fill up quickly. Fortunately, we only remember those things that make a significant impact in our lives. The really major stuff. Beautiful things, but also those that aren’t so good. […]

Sin lulls you to sleep

I like food. I like eating – that’s why I look like I do. For me, every meal is an opportunity to get together and enjoy one another’s company. A friend of mine is fasting. Immediately, I wanted to tell him that I would never be able to do it, because you see, I like […]

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 […]

All-out action

We must hear about the forgiveness of sin and what Jesus did for us on the cross again and again and in different ways so that we can really experience it. Every moment of the day we must know what Jesus did and then live victoriously. 15He stripped all the spiritual tyrants in the universe […]

Tear up those overdrafts

People are so used to having accounts – we actually love accounts. I don’t know if this is because it makes us feel important to open our wallets and pick and choose which card to use. Visa card, Master card, Clicks card, Woollies card or Edgars card. Name it, we have it. And that’s why […]

In and out the casket at our funeral

In Colossians 2, Paul tells the people clearly and persistently about Jesus’ death on the cross and what it means for sin. We are going to look at this subject a few times. And it is good to do it, because it is impossible to fully understand this wonderful thing that Christ had done for […]
