Talking to people about God

You may not feel particularly attracted by the thought of an octopus. Perhaps your only interest in one is when you eat Calamari, made from one the octopus’ closest cousins, or if you are especially wild about some Chinese specialty dishes. But can a female octopus teach us something about having an on-going conversation with a seeker about God and... Read more...



Jesus is Lord!

Jesus is Lord!

The Lordship of Jesus Christ is one of the most important Christian truths. In fact, your entire life of faith depends on it. Your faith is empty, and you have no hope of salvation, if Jesus is not the Lord (the ultimate authority in creation, the absolute ruler of the universe), and if he has not proved his Lordship by...

Three million people waiting

Three million people waiting

“I believe we should be more confident about our status as a Christian country, more ambitious about expanding the role of faith-based organisations, and, frankly, more evangelical about a faith that compels us to get out there and make a difference to people’s lives.” (David Cameron, Easter Speech) We are still a Christian country – or so the Prime Minister...

Resurrection now!

Resurrection now!

Our faith is founded both in the past accomplishments and the future promises of God. The resurrection of Christ happened a long time ago. Our resurrection will take place in the future. But this has a lot to teach us about how to live for God now. As we look back to the resurrection of Christ and look forward to... Read more...


Step out of the boat!

Step out of the boat!

The miracles that demonstrate who Jesus is are not just the ones he performs independently from his Church, but also the ones he does in us, with us and through us.   The miracle of walking on water followed straight after the feeding of the five thousand. The miraculous multiplication of bread and fish was supposed to teach the disciples... Read more...


The battle for souls

The battle for souls

Real faith is all about engaging in the most significant battle that we can ever face, and that is the battle for souls. Many evangelists and those who minister in the miraculous often say that the biggest miracle that they experience is not the healing of a body, but the saving of a soul. In this battle we are facing... Read more...


Strongholds of the mind

Strongholds of the mind

It is said that truth is the first casualty of war. Nations at war use propaganda as a significant weapon against each other. In spiritual warfare truth plays an even more crucial role. It defines the very nature of the battle. The heart of spiritual warfare is the battle for the hearts and minds of people. All demonic strongholds are... Read more...

The power of friendship

The power of friendship

Friends delight in each other’s company and their friendship in the Spirit enhances their service, motivates their actions and strengthens their commitment to Christ. The Bible places a high value on friendship, showing us how we can benefit from companionship and how we can use this gift in the kingdom of God. Friendship is, of course, beneficial in its own...

When heaven breaks open

When heaven breaks open

Religion, faith in God or following Christ is not a matter of religious observance as if you can treat God like a slot machine. You cannot make Him to do anything for you. He is no genie in a bottle that you can manipulate with the right magic words and force Him to manifest Himself and say, “Your wish is... Read more...


Finding & Fulfilling Your Ministry

Finding & Fulfilling Your Ministry

It is my desire to see every believer fulfilling the ministry that God has for them. In my experience, however, there are two main stumbling blocks – either people are not aware of the giftings that God has given them, or they have an idea of their gift areas but do not know where to begin. It seems that sometimes... Read more...

God’s will is to bless

God’s will is to bless

God’s will is for blessing. He carries goodness within himself and he loves to pour it out upon others. God wants to bless you so that you can also, like him, be a blessing to those around you. God called Abram, with this promise, “I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.” (Genesis... Read more...


Becoming Christ’s Hand and Feet

Becoming Christ’s Hand and Feet

God has showered us with benefits and blessings. Jesus paid for them all on the cross and we received them by faith, the very moment we believed in Jesus as Saviour and Lord. Gospel blessings come from pure grace and we receive them by simple faith, without ever having to do anything to earn them or to prove ourselves worthy... Read more...


The Servant King

The Servant King

How would you like to have been Joseph or Mary at this time? They were normal everyday people facing a potentially very embarrassing situation. It was only the visit of an angel explaining the circumstances to Joseph that convinced him that he was part of a unique event. Knowing that it was God’s hand and his will was the only... Read more...
