If Jesus came to your house, what would you do? Wouldn’t you offer him the best and most comfortable seat? Wouldn’t you offer him food and drink? Wouldn’t you offer him the best bedroom and a chance to shower? Of course you would. What an incredible opportunity to do something of real value for someone […]

We know we are not saved by works but by grace; God’s sovereign gift to all those who believe in and follow Jesus. Consequently, there is a tendency to undervalue works even though numerous scriptures tell us that what we do is important. In James 2:26 we are told, faith without works is dead. In […]

We have heard continuously about the COVID-19 virus and the havoc it is creating across the world.
