The Wonderful World of Apologetics
Sometimes the best place to start when exploring the wonderful world of apologetics is with some of our own questions. What are some of the big questions you or your children have? What about some of the loved ones in our lives or our neighbours or coworkers? What questions do they have? Why not ask them? You might be surprised how much you love exploring the answers.
All of Life as Worship
What does it mean to worship God? For many Christians the term worship is related to the time spent at church making music and singing songs directed to God in praise.
Visions or Dreams
The Bible has many accounts of those who received a heavenly dream or vision. This is an encouragement to us as we can reflect on how God speaks and the results of obedience to what is heard or seen. So what is a divine dream or a vision?
8 Amazing Things About Angels
What does the Bible say about their roles in our life? What are they like? What are they created to do? Let’s take a look at 7 things the Bible says about angels and their ministry.
Discerning the Voice of God
There is no escaping the culture of cause-driven protests that have been permeating in cities all over the world. Many of them involving young people that have often been mis-labelled as being apathetic or entitled. While there are differing opinions, often leading to heated debates, on the issues/cause, there is agreement that everyone has a VOICE and there are more platforms than ever before for these voices to bring about changes that would lead to a revolution.
The Pattern of Miracles
One of my favorite books in the Bible right up there with Genesis is the Book of Acts. It’s the beginning of the miracles Jesus promised as God poured His Spirit out on the Day of Pentecost. Along with the birth of the church, we see documented miracles and “acts” that followed as believers shared this great news of Jesus’ resurrection everywhere they went.
Having God’s Eyes
Anyone who has ever been a part of a family business knows that you can never just see things the way customers or clients do – you see so much more. Your eyes become attuned to what’s missing, what’s working, what’s not working, what could be better, what needs cleaning, what needs organization, what needs revamping…
What Does God Want From Me?
In the Bible, the 15th chapter of Luke is known as the lost and found chapter, and it culminates in one of the most powerful stories of a father’s love. It’s the story of the prodigal son.
What Every Son and Daughter Needs
This Father’s Day I can’t help but to reflect on the love of my Heavenly Father and my earthly one, and how it anchored me ever since being in a relationship with Him.
Pastor Dave in this series on “Dear God” is taking us through a difficult period concerning current affairs. These are making the news each day. His textbook is the Bible. We have seen him holding it out towards us, telling us, last week, it is a mirror into which we must look. So, let us take a look.
Breath of Life
The Bible says that God breathed the breath of life into man. Every human being
regardless of colour, race and background is created by God and that makes every life
sacred. This passage from Genesis came to my mind as I have been thinking and
praying for the United States, watching as people have been protesting against police
brutality, systemic injustice and racism.
Be Safe. Be Calm. Be Refreshed.
Amongst the sorrow experienced with the world wide pandemic, there has also been a calm of sorts. Plans are simplified. Parents have risen to new level. And prayer has been more purposeful
God’s Essential Services
Before there was ever a Romeo and Juliet, a Cleopatra and Mark Antony, or a Pocahontas and John Smith, there was Boaz and Ruth. This tender, romantic story stands as one of the oldest and most beautiful illustrations of what true love is. But through the romance, poetry and fairytale ending, one truth rings true above all; even in the darkest hours of our life, God is still at work.
Praising Our Mothers
Mother’s Day in 2020 will undoubtedly be celebrated a little differently than it has before given the precautions over social gatherings because of the COVID-19 pandemic. That being the case, the opportunity to honour mothers is still valid, perhaps more so now than ever before. From the working mom that now has to add homeschooling to the fold, to the grandmother in a care home deprived of family visits, the sense of isolation for each can be equally damaging.
Calming Anxiety in a COVID Season
As each of us have faced significant risks, challenges and uncertainties during this coronavirus pandemic, it’s possible that the biggest impact of this season affecting the greatest number of people may be the toll that COVID-19 has taken on our collective mental health.
When You’re Not Sure How To Pray
“It’ll all work out”, people often say, or “it’s all for the best”, or “everything happens for a reason”. While all these sayings may be true or have some truth in them, I’m sure we have asked ourselves one time or another, how can I know that for sure? The reality is, we can’t, but we know the One who knows all things, and we know we can trust in Him.
5 Survival Tips for The COVID-19 Quarantine
We are to physically distance ourselves, yet paradoxically, right now we need each other more than ever. In this extraordinary time, we must continually encourage, pray, and care for each other.
Sozo in Isolation
In the Garden of Gethsemane and at the cross, Jesus himself experienced apparent loneliness and abandonment from God, which can be described as his darkest hour. In the midst of chaos, and facing pain, Jesus knew that in all these things God was in control.
