Interactive Bible reading, some tips…

I’ve been doing a lot of reading over the years, but only recently (maybe the past year or so) did I actually start marking up my books. I wanted to keep my books as pristine as possible, and this was also true for my Bible. So for a long time, probably about 3 years, IContinue reading “Interactive Bible reading, some tips…”

Listen to correction, don’t mistake it for persecution…

Christian social media is a weird and wonderful place. I enjoy wasting time (far too much time!) scrolling through my newsfeeds on Twitter and Facebook. Everyday I see new theological discussions, new debates about old controversies, and sadly, I see people who are not acting in a way that is glorifying to God. Christians areContinue reading “Listen to correction, don’t mistake it for persecution…”

Study the Word…

As 2020 is coming just over the horizon maybe, like many Christians in the world, you’re thinking “What will I study in the Bible this year?” We spend so much time thinking about what we, as adults, do and study in our quiet times, but do we afford our children and young people the sameContinue reading “Study the Word…”

Joy in the sorrow

There are plenty of books out there on the theory of and theology of suffering and plenty of books full of testimonies of people haveContinue reading “Joy in the sorrow”

What do you think the responses would be if you asked the average Christian; what is ministry? I think people would say Pastor, elder, they may say student pastor, youth pastor, children’s and families worker, but it generally stops there. Sadly, one of the things that is lacking in so many churches is someone whoContinue reading “Unexceptional”

How do I know God’s Will for my life?

If you’ve spent any time at all around Christians, then you’ve heard this question and you’ve probably asked it yourself a number of times too, right? You know those excruciating times where you have no idea what to do, or which direction to take and you feel completely lost at sea. You’ve got questions andContinue reading “How do I know God’s Will for my life?”

Maturing as Christians…

Maturity is not always a given and age is not always a good indication of maturity; the same is true for the Christian. You could have been a Christian for ages or for just a few years, your maturity depends on how you go about living out, investigating and investing in your faith in Christ.Continue reading “Maturing as Christians…”
