The King conquers!
The King is coming! The King is coming indeed!"

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.

Do you remember the days when Christians used to often say - "God willing, we will do this or that."

We must be aware of the dangers of the world’s outlook on life that tries to make us believe that we are completely in control of our lives. This world view has no place for God and although some may be nominal believers in God, they live like atheists.

This is Paul’s message in 2 Corinthians 5: 16 – 21: "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Everything old has passed away. Everything has become new.”

Do we understand that this Season is indeed about sacrifice and kingdom-work, rather than entertainment, self-indulgence and consumerism?

God wants us and everyone else to proclaim the Gospel that God loved us so much that he gave us his only Son that if we believe in him, we will have eternal life. He is counting on us to let this news go “viral” that we are, for Christ sake, eternally redeemed.

Following God’s mission as his ambassador and transforming the church into an obedient instrument to implore all to enter into the Kingdom of God, involves a lot more than simply changing / renewing my theology or my understanding of what God’s mission truly is.
No, it is all about the new sensible way that we are the church, about what we are practically doing to fulfil our Godly purpose to make a difference in the world.

Which Christ do you follow?
Can we ever ignore our Presbyterian / Reformed Confessions and heritage, witnessing about the truth about salvation through the grace of the only one God and Saviour whom me know through the work of the Holy Spirit?

The hand which brings gifts to God must be washed first.

Take courage, God has a plan for your life. For this purpose we are “brought back” from the captivity of fear, of uncertainty and of being without a vision and excitement for the future. 
By Andries on Friday, August 24, 2018 2:37:15 AM
Ministers and elders can realise God’s idea about the church by:
Not allowing some members more “air-time” with us than the others;
Treating each member with the same respect, love and dignity;
Not having favourites; walking the lonely road of being a friend to everyone – which means that we are never special friends to only a few.
