The world is quick to scoff at the Christian faith. Matthew’s account of events shows Joseph’s life asking a vital question: When accepting Jesus Christ as saviour, are you brave enough to tick the little ‘checkbox’ alongside “I Accept The Terms & Conditions”, to accept the scandal, to take the risks, and be prepared to […]
Boring! Of course, your ‘contacts’ list is not boring, they’re friends! But, seriously, a list of Jewish Biblical names can be nothing but boring; except maybe the name ‘Christ’. So, why is He mentioned amidst these sinful men? Nothing to do with needing to be on Christ’s list of friends, is it?
If Christians are deluded believing what they do, what have they lost? Excuses have run out, and it’s time to accept the cold fact that Christians are on to something in believing Jesus is the Messiah, the only One who can save and thus grant a life in Heaven. The question is… what have you […]
Yes, some mysteries will remain mysteries for all time (on earth, that is). Yet, we have seen Jesus was not a mythical figure, nor was He ‘just a man’. This time we see how He was revealed to a waiting world. How many more excuses can there be before having to face the harsh reality […]

It’s time to decide: is it possible He might […]

Are you ready to be challenged?
David, in Psalm 142, prays “I Cry Aloud To The Lord… I Tell Him My Trouble“. As God’s children, called by His name, we can seek absolute refuge as did David. And then end with exclamations of praise. Are you able to turn to God when life throws you curveballs?
“O Little, Blink-And-You-Miss-It, Insignificant, More-Village-Than-Town, Bethlehem“… Instead of Jerusalem, it is out of this not-even-worthy-of-the-ink-used-to-show-it-on-a-map kind of place that God worked an amazing miracle. Could He do the same out of your weaknesses?
