Each article here is based on a sermon given in our church, but re-composed for the comfort of reading. We have many more that will be uploaded soon.

God said to Moses “I AM WHO I AM.” Jesus said to the Jews “Before Abraham was born, I AM.” Father, Son and Spirit are I AM (Yahweh). So what then does it mean to be baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Read more
There were two kings: Saul and David. God rejected Saul and elected David. Why? The answer is simple: God saw their hearts – Saul’s heart was bad and David’s heart was good. This teaches us a lot about electing leaders. We need to see their hearts - but how?Imagine steering an aircraft with your mind. You think ‘tilt left’ and it does, you think ‘climb higher’ and it obeys. An air base in Dayton, Ohio is researching this capability. They Read more
Jesus often got angry with the religious leaders of his day. One of the things that angered him most was their traditions. Their traditions were their rules and practices that they imposed on everyone based on their interpretation of scripture. On one occasion Jesus said to them, “You nullify the word of God for the sake of your traditions.” This was when the Pharisees accused him and his disciples of not washing their hands before eating. There is no command Read more
Mary had washed Jesus’ feet; all they required was a dab of perfume. It had been an opportune moment. She and Martha were so grateful for what Jesus had done for Lazarus and the dinner was a big ‘thank you’. Mary told the servants to take a break as it would be an honour for her to cleanse Jesus’ feet, and it would give her the perfect opportunity to sit where the men normally did and ask a few questions.

The news was out. The Galilean teacher had fed 5000 with 5 loaves and 2 fish. There were many poor in the area. They had found the teacher in another town and wanted him to do it again. But he knew their motives, they wanted food and didn’t care who provided it. Jesus said “Do not work (strive) for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life” (27).  I know this situation well. Read more
Did you ever sneak into a church hoping to go unnoticed? You sit at the back closest to the door while those who are regulars march confidently to the front. This is how the tax-collector in Jesus’ parable may have felt when he crept into the temple area to confess he was a sinner. I am referring to the parable of the Pharisee and the tax-collector that went to the temple to pray (Luke 18:9-14). The Pharisee was a regular; Read more
What is a good loser? What is a bad winner? Why do some people win or lose with dignity and others with disgrace? How do you react when you win or lose? Read more
“Daddy, Daddy, that’s my Daddy,” was all John could hear as he came through the airport arrivals section. Seconds later his little girl threw herself into his arms and showered him with kisses. That unforgettable moment gave John a new understanding of worship. God the Father is looking for this same kind of response from His children. The Christian God is not an impersonal force; He is a loving Father, a Person. Today’s message highlights some of God’s ‘Personal’ characteristics: Read more
See it? In the rock formation are two praying figures. They are horizontal so tilt your head to the left. I am sceptical, but if its genuine its not coincidence its God-incidence. Do you think God arranges nature, marriage partners, jobs? Read more
‘Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding’ (Prov 4:7). These are the words of King Solomon, a man famous for his wisdom, knowledge and understanding.God told Solomon to ask for whatever he wanted and he asked for the wisdom to govern God’s people. God was so impressed that Solomon had asked for this rather than for honour or wealth that he gave Solomon wisdom, honour and wealth (1 Kings 3:5-13). Deal!But let’s focus Read more
Jesus said to hate was murderous, to look lustfully was adulterous, to swear by the temple was superstitious, to practice an eye for an eye was malicious, and to hate your enemy was prejudice. He focused on the spirit not the letter of the law. Read more
It was a hot humid morning so I was thankful for the sea breeze that wafted through the palms. Things were quiet, just a few kids calling to the Vervet monkeys in a nearby Baobab. Three wildebeest seemed to be keeping an eye on them a few meters away. Suddenly the tranquil scene was broken by distant shouting. The kids turned and the wildebeest bolted as a lone figure appeared running down the twisting footpath from the sea. Read more
