Devotional thoughts for most days, for those who depend on the grace and mercy of God in Jesus Christ. These thoughts are Bible based and inspired by my Reformed tradition.

Humans are the most complicated of all creatures, yet they have the most poorly developed reflexes at birth - and have very little instinctive behaviour. Almost all human behaviour is learned behaviour. Just about everything we know, everything we do, and everything we believe is the result of the processes of learning.

On Youth Day 2022, let’s emphasize how the upbringing of our children determines more than their character in this life, but also in the eternal life to come.  Solid biblical faith, the daily intersession of parents, the presence of both a father and a mother that love them, are but a few prerequisites to give our young people the chance to grow up to be successful – in the Lord.

The Holy Trinity has been revealed to show us the essence of the character of God and when we believe this revelation, the Holy Spirit brings us to worship, to being in awe of our Holy God and to revere his divine love and harmony.

The believers and their leaders in the first Church in Jerusalem were intimidated and instructed to stop preaching and ministering in the Name of Jesus Christ by the temple authorities. They knew that they needed boldness, confidence and courage and they went to Jesus Christ, in prayer, to receive it.

What difference does it make that the first Christians were baptized with the fire of the Holy Spirit, 2000 years ago, on the Jewish festival called Shavuot (Hebrew) or Pentecost (Greek)?  It means that all who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Redeemer receive “the indwelling and the power of the Holy Spirit”.

Two thousand years ago, 40 days after the resurrection of Jesus, he was enthroned in heaven on his Ascension Day -  and 10 days after his ascension, on the first Pentecost Sunday, God poured out his Holy Spirit on his Church.

The Resurrection journey brings us to the deeper understanding of Pentecost. Forty days after Jesus’ resurrection, he ascends into heaven

On Ascension Day, in 2022 celebrated on Thursday 26 May, we proclaim that Jesus is our Lord. That he died for our sins and has been raised from the dead and has risen to heaven.
He is alive forever, and he was enthroned at the right hand of God the Father and has been given all authority in heaven and on earth on the first Ascension Day, more than 2000 years ago.

During this joyful, celebratory time that lasts from Resurrection Sunday till Pentecost, not only is our faith deepened, but our prayers should reflect our unwavering faith and joy too.   These prayers are based on events that happened between the resurrection and ascension of Christ and are fit for our personal devotions and congregational worship.

Jesus is not only the foundation stone, the corner stone of his Church, but a Living Stone, in the sense that Christ is outstandingly the resurrected, Living One, the Source of life.
