Beastly world, bright future

Daniel’s frightening dream of what’s up ahead left him reeling, and with lots of unanswered questions (Daniel 7). It was full of scary unknowns. Life is often like that. But the centrepiece of what God is doing is his sovereign rule, even over the ruthless rulers who will savage God’s…

Your days are numbered

One of the most obvious and certain facts is that our life is limited. We’re constantly reminded of this through the death of loved ones, accidents, health scares, the daily news, etc, etc. It’s everywhere, yet we often live our lives as if our time is limitless: time to really…

Saying “Sorry”

As children we learn early how to say the words “I’m sorry.” Parents rightfully get us to practice the behaviour when conflicts arise among siblings and playmates. Eventually, a true sense of remorse must catch-up to merely frowning and saying the words reluctantly so that we can go back to…

The bad news of the gospel

We often translate the word gospel as ‘good news’. But in the time of Jesus, it simply meant ‘news’. There’s a good reason for this. If you believe it and obey it, it’s incredibly good news. The exchange of our guilt and sin for Jesus’ perfect goodness and righteousness is…

Be different, be good.

Growing up in the small town I lived in had its interesting scenarios.  Next door to us was a house that always had families changing over.  I remember one such family having its struggles. A fight had broken out, with alcohol involved and yelling echoing down the street.  We’d become…

Why is the Bible so hard to understand?

Sometimes we can feel intimidated when opening the bible. It can feel so hard to understand and apply. Worse yet – it might even be boring! One reason we feel so discouraged is that we’ve only ever read God’s word by ourselves. Of course, it’s great to commit to personal…

Who do you trust?

I heard someone say the other day that they used to read the news to find out the facts of a story, so they could decide what to believe about it. They went on to say, “Now if I read the news I’m told what to believe about something, and…

Life’s Journey – Step by Step

As we seek to live our lives according to God guidance, we would all love to have a big map showing us where we are going, how long it will take to get there, and what’s coming up next.  But the reality is God has given us a compass, to…
