Be An Exhorter (1)

‘Exhort one another daily.’ Hebrews 3:13 NKJV The Greek word for ‘exhort’ is parakaleo. It comes from two words, one meaning ‘alongside of’ and the other meaning ‘to call’. This is the root of the Greek word paraclete, which is the name Jesus gave the Holy Spirit. The real ministry of the Holy Spirit is to exhort …Read More

How God Deals With Our Self-Centredness

‘Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to His cross and crucified them there.’ Galatians 5:24 NLT It’s estimated that the average person speaks about nine million words a year, and more than half are, ‘I, me, my, mine.’ But following Christ means dying to self, and self-centredness …Read More

Strive To Become Intimately Acquainted With God

‘All I want is to know Christ and the power that raised Him to life.’ Philippians 3:10 CEV It’s one thing to know about God, but it’s entirely another thing to know Him intimately.

Get Free From Debt

‘The borrower is servant to the lender.’ Proverbs 22:7 NLT To get free from debt: (1) Write down your financial goals.

Through Christ, You Can Break The Habit!

‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ Philippians 4:13 NKJV Stubborn habits assume a life of their own; that’s why they keep growing.

Learn To Be Alone With God

‘Moses alone is to approach the Lord.’ Exodus 24:2 NIV It’s essential to be alone with God in order to hear clearly from Him.

Are you serious about …Read More

Peace, In Spite Of The Circumstances

‘My peace I give you.’ John 14:27 NIV God rarely sends us into situations where our comfort level is high. Instead He promises to be with us in spite of our fear.

The Child That Needs You Most

‘When he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion.’ Luke 15:20 NKJV Good parents try to love all their children equally.

Thoughts On Giving (3)

‘You must decide in your heart how much to give.’ 2 Corinthians 9:7 NLT We each give for different reasons. (1) Some people give out of guilt. They give to God’s work because they would feel bad if they didn’t. (2) Some people give out of greed. They give only to get. They stand on Scriptures such …Read More
