Getting Out of Neutral

by Peter Brokaar

Growing up in Holland, which means growing up riding bicycles, I learned about the law of momentum in a very practical way. I learnt that, if you don’t keep the momentum going, you will fall over. To prevent tipping sideways, one needs to keep moving forwards. This principle applies to our spiritual...

Nature Therapy

by Wendy Scott

Why does David refer to the hills in this psalm? It is not as if he expects God to be living on the hill and to come down and help him. However, the hills and the mountains embody the power of God. Psalm 24:1 says, ‘The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it’. Therefore, just looking at and appreciating...

What a Challenge!

by Ruth Hawkey

Yesterday I decided to take a cup of coffee to my granddaughter who was working in the local butcher’s shop. As I was walking down the road, it unfortunately started to rain and I wondered what on earth I was doing, especially as the rain got heavier and I began to get very wet and cold. Then the phrase...

The Birthday Cake

by Dean Gardner

We recently celebrated Gemma’s birthday. Apart from buying each other birthday gifts each year, Gemma and I always secretly visit the supermarket to get each other a birthday cake, which we conceal until the special day arrives. This year I was pleased to find a particularly colourful sponge cake,...

What Does it Really Mean to Love God?

by Margaret Silvester

I was recently reminded of a life-changing meeting with Jesus which took place in a communion service at the end of a camping holiday, when I was half the age I am now. As we shared the bread and wine, the following words echoed through the marquee, ‘By and by when I look on His face, beautiful face,...

Temptation

by Tanya Person

I have frequently heard teachings about how, in the wilderness, Satan tempted Jesus in all the same categories as we get tested and Jesus passed the test, and the implication I received from those sermons was that Jesus was never tested again. As I was reading Luke 4 recently, it suddenly struck me that...

My Heavenly Baa Code

by Sue Griffiths

Sheep often have a bad press. But there’s one skill sheep have that I find extremely impressive. Jesus clearly knew sheep very well, and He also knew this amazing quality they have: voice recognition. It’s what, in our family, we call their ‘Baa code’. It keeps the sheep safe. Every new-born...

A Great Blessing

by Grace Bull

I think we all have times when we get a bit dry spiritually, and don’t feel like reading the Bible (it’s not just you!). Then we can get into a vicious cycle, where our spirits are dry, which makes us feel grumpy, and when we feel grumpy we don’t feel like reading the Bible, even though that would...

Bitter-Sweet

by Ron Scurfield

It looked like a sandstorm on the horizon, a grey cloud swirling over the desert. It could have been an army of men on horseback, or camels. But it wasn’t. It was thousands of men, women and children, racing over the dunes with sand billowing around them. They had been travelling for three days without...

To Fight or Be Still

by Christel Baxter

If you have been a Christian for a while, you will know that there are times you can sense a definite resistance and a buffering from the enemy of your soul. You seem to face all kinds of difficulties and struggles, and it almost feels like an onslaught on your life and family. In Ephesians 6:10-18,...
