Love ‘em all

In a culture that is fixated on outward appearances, it is often easy for Christians to show favouritism within the church. As people who have been shown grace by the Lord Himself, we too must be willing to extend grace to all people regardless of their education, finances, social standing or race. James 2:1-13 ESV The Sin of Partiality 2 My brothers,[a]…

True Religion

Tower Builders or Tatty Buildings

People in society today are no different to the people we see in this passage, as they seek to make a name for themselves.

This one thing I know!

Encountering a man blind from birth, the disciples assumed that the cause for his blindness must have been someone’s sin. Jesus, however, told them that his blindness was so that the work of God might be displayed in him. The remedy for our spiritual blindness is receiving spiritual sight as an undeserved gift from the Lord…

‘Christmas Personalities’ Part 2

‘Christmas Personalities’ Part 2 Among the core teachings of Christianity, the virgin birth can be one of the most difficult for the human mind to accept. Yet in Luke’s Gospel account, we see Mary respond in trust to the angel’s mysterious message. As we consider the unique nature of Jesus’ miraculous birth in the context…

Finding Gods Mercy

During Advent, believers commemorate Christ’s incarnation and anticipate His promised return. After sin entered the world, man multiplied his corruption and rebellion against God, resulting in God sending a flood as a righteous judgement against sin. Not everyone perished, though. Noah found mercy and favour in God’s eyes and took shelter in the ark. While…
