Live to give

Do we the church cling to wealth? Do we go out in the world seeking fame and fortune, wanting more and more? Do we ignore those who are in need; do we leave it to others to help the needy?  How should the church deal with money? How should we as Christians live? After all, […]

Pray, pray, pray!

The word of God says to ‘pray continually’. Our Father in Heaven loves to hear us talk to Him. Our lives should be one long prayer to God, a running conversation with Him. What is sweeter than communion with the Lord of Hosts through our Lord Jesus Christ? What is more amazing than talking directly […]

LGBT and Christianity

LGBT+ and Christianity: have we got it wrong?

This is a massive subject and not one that I approach lightly, but rather, literally, in fear and trepidation, with a profound sense of its difficulty and sensitivity. It is an issue that needs to be considered by all Christians. We need to clearly define the biblical position. It cannot be handled without touching on […]

Youthful wisdom

So you have probably seen this title and maybe freaked out a little. Here we go again, the youth thinking they know it all.   Hopefully by reading on, you will find that I think nothing of the sort, however, I also don’t think we are plain dumb either. Youth Arise!

Decisions, decisions...

Discerning God’s will: when decisions need to be made…

Before you read the rest of this, let me just tell you a bit about myself. I am a final year student studying to be teacher. I have approximately 5 weeks left before I have finished uni for good (not that I am counting of course!) I currently do not have a job lined up […]

Reading Bible

The importance of reading and meditating on your Bible every day

I remember a little ditty I learnt as a youngster, to the tune of London’s Burning: Read your Bible, read your Bible read it daily, read it daily. It’s a lamp; it’s a lamp, and a light to your pathway. The words are simple but they are so true. It’s based on Psalm 119:105, which […]

Our narcissistic generation

Everyone lives for something – a philosophy that keeps them going, gets them through the week’s problems, acts as their final source of authority on the meaning of life, morals and other matters. This philosophy or ideology might come from anything or take different forms. There are many different ‘isms’. It might be a person close to […]
