I Am Chosen

One of the mind-blowing things about following Jesus is that you find out that God had you in mind to be in His family long before you even thought about it. Long before you even existed. Long before you did anything wrong, and needed forgiving. Before the world came into…

Helping One Another Know, Grow & Proclaim Christ

Helping others is a wonderful thing to be doing. It’s the second greatest commandment, according to Jesus (“love your neighbour as yourself” Matthew 22:39). It’s no surprise that researchers find that people who help others report that their life is happier and has greater meaning than for those who are…

Church Vision 2019

It’s been a tough week for the church with the conviction of George Pell on child sex offences. It’s easy to point the finger and say that we would never do that. And I pray fervently that none of us would. But the stark reality is that apart from God’s redeeming…

The sobering reality of the future

It’s not popular these days to talk about hell and eternal punishment. I get the feeling that it’s distinctly unpopular. And yet God has plainly told us ahead of time that future accountability is a reality for us all. Every wrong will be put right, every sin paid for. He’s…

Coming ready or not!

I am so looking forward to the coming of Jesus. The bible tells us that He will bring in the new heaven and new earth. The whole creation will be renewed and perfectly and lovingly ruled by Him. There will be no more suffering or crying or pain. Nothing evil…

The Burden and Joy of Leadership

One of the great gifts that God gives us is the ability to influence the lives of others. Parents get to do it with kids, aunties with nephews and nieces, teachers with students, friends with friends, workers with colleagues, patients with carers and vice-versa. The opportunities are endless. And it’s…

You never know…

On Tuesday our family was together to give thanks for Janet’s dad, who passed away recently. After the service a man who had been in a youth group I was involved in many years ago introduced himself to me. He was from a non-Christian background and had put his trust…
