We need Jesus very much

26So now we have a high priest who perfectly fits our needs: completely holy, uncompromised by sin … The same day I was reading this verse, a message about pornography went out on Crossroads. The readers’ feedback left me speechless: THIS IS SHOCKING!! I am going to pray for these people today. You always pray […]

God wants to use you

The book Hebrews was written for readers who knew the history of God’s involvement with his people very well. They knew the Old Testament and were familiar with the customs. They also probably knew what role the high priest played in that time. The author wants to use the image of the high priest to […]

The truth will out

I’ve written about this before, but I do think we should say it to one another again: The truth always comes out! We know this since childhood. Wrong deeds will come to light some time or another. I’ve experienced this truth many times in my life. When I was at school, I was often in […]

Jesus adds up differently

While we were growing up, there was no such thing as Grade R. Even playschools weren’t that common. We ate, played, ate, played and slept. So it was no surprise that many of us got quite weepy when we were pushed into a classroom. It felt like a cage to us. Everything was unfamiliar. The […]

Succulents, grass and sin

5… He gave us a good bath, and we came out of it new people, washed inside and out by the Holy Spirit. Does this mean that we are now clean of sin and will never sin again? When I look at my own life, I realise the answer is a loud and clear, “no”. […]

What we should have been taught, was how to have a civil conversation about a difficult topic.” We often avoid difficult topics in the hope that […]

A restoration process

I used love watching programmes in which old cars were made new again. You could hardly recognise the old car coming out of the garage. From an old, rusted piece of tin to a shiny, new vehicle. They strip nearly everything from the old jalopy that comes in. It’s mostly the framework that remains and […]

Let go of the wrong life style and desires

We haven’t arrived the day we meet Christ and accept Him as our Saviour. That’s not the finish line, but the starting point. It’s the beginning of a new life where we cut off the doings of the old person piece by piece and start learning a new way of living. 12 We’re being shown […]

Healthy words for the virus

We must remember that the fall has impacted our humanity in a major way. In some way, we’re sick and completely stained by sin. We’re like a car with poor wheel alignment. We’re pulling in the wrong direction all the time. Our foundation is wrong. We use the wrong starting block. When someone cuts in […]

With wisdom we can change our default

8 … be helpful, wise, fair, reverent … This is how all of us must be like. I struggle with “wise, fair, reverent”. God should’ve known what humans are like and that it is in our nature to go off course. Yes, it’s easy when things are going well, but when things don’t go the […]
