A BIG HEART FOR GOD

September 30th, 2014|

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition […]

We are constantly instructed in God’s word to walk. To walk in light, to walk in love and to […]

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. Romans 1:16

THE CROSS AND ETERNITY

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

This picture reminds me that it was our sin that nailed Christ […]

HUMBLE HEROES OF THE FAITH

July 1st, 2014|

Early on in my ministry years I met a man who had paid a great price for the privilege of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He grew up as a traditional ‘law man’ in his country with a life long mandate to uphold the ancient laws of the tribal peoples. But when Limerick came […]

Wow!… What majestic words. It’s not hard to imagine God singing. He gave us the gift of music and the […]

The Joy of the Lord

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Psalm 51-12
There is something eternal about the word ‘joy’. It is far deeper than happiness and far more effective than laughter. Joy goes way beyond an emotional high or an adventurous experience. Joy has a quiet strength, a […]
