The Sower
The Sower

“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:24    I have been contemplating the story of the sower as mentioned in Matthew Chapter 13. The interesting thing is that the illustration is so simple

Speaking the Truth in Love
Speaking the Truth in Love

Read Ephesians 4. Verse 15 says: “Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.” I have recently been challenged by this scripture as, whilst we all know it and say it, I wonder how many of us

Don’t Delay
Don’t Delay

I don’t know anybody who likes going to hospital or visiting the dentist. The only time that we are really keen to go is when we are in pain. Personally, I hate needles. It’s completely irrational, as at 6’4” and 250lbs, how could I be worried about such a small object? Yet the fear of

Losing Weight
Losing Weight

Hebrews 12:1 says, ‘…let us lay aside every weight…’ The author, thought to be Paul, talks here about running a race. It is in this context that he refers to laying aside every weight. Weight is a killer. Putting it on is easy, but getting rid of it requires major effort. I know, because I

The Power of the Seed
The Power of the Seed

I take no credit for this idea as it is not my original thought, but has come from no less a person than John Lennox. However, there is no shame in repeating the thing that has really blessed you. Jesus often used the natural, simple things in life to illustrate the profound message of the

The Fourth Dimension
The Fourth Dimension

We generally live in a three-dimensional world. In some areas, that is reduced to two.  For instance, printed material is on a flat surface, yet from that flat surface, we are able, through our imagination, to conjure up images that words in a book are telling us. We mentally move between two and three dimensions.

Adoption : Lord Edmiston
Adoption : Lord Edmiston

Psalm 127 tells us “Children are a blessing from God”. Yet, for some, the prospect of children is not welcome and they are either to be suffered or aborted. How sad, that which is intended as a blessing is seen as a curse by some, while others who desperately wish to have a child are

The Cross
The Cross

“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 KJVA I wonder if we have ever really understood this verse? To some extent, I recently had my mind and heart opened to it and I found

Demas Has Forsaken Me
Demas Has Forsaken Me

I have often been struck by the scripture in 2 Timothy 4:10, where it says “Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world”.  This scripture has haunted me over the years as a warning. We don’t know very much about Demas, in fact he is only mentioned in two other places; Philemon 1:24 and

The Circle of Life
The Circle of Life

I recently had the good fortune to be in Tanzania to watch the Great Migration.  My wife, Tracie, and I saw so many amazing sights.  A lake with literally hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of flamingos moving in squadrons directed by an inner instinct. We saw lions, buffalos, elephants, rhino and also small animals
