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.

“Remembrance” is key to Biblical worship. To remember what Jesus did for our salvation is therefore the benchmark of a Biblical celebration of Ash Wednesday, the Lenten Season, Holy Week and Easter.

John 4: 31 – 32. His disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.” But Jesus said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”

When tragedy strikes, or when we find that we are different from others in whatever way, or that things happened to us that influenced our self image and our emotional security, we may know that the transforming power of the love of Jesus Christ has the capacity to give us a new identity and a new sense of self worth!

The first commandment concerns itself with love for God; the other with love for your neighbour. We have nicknamed them the Great Commandments. Everything written in the Bible boils down to these two great commandments.

Do you trust God completely? So much so that you live according to your faith, to the point that the Lord is able to trust you too? When Jesus Christ returns, it will be the most wonderful of mercies to hear him saying to us appreciatively: "Well done, good and faithful servant!"

More than ever before the ministry in the local church will be challenged in 2020.
The growing number of those who believe that participating in serving Christ the King is optional / unnecessary / a burden seems to be insurmountable. Consumerism, hedonism and secularism are the roots of this huge challenge.

Incarnation: It means that someone living according to the spirit, becomes Someone who came to us according to the flesh.
This is the Biblical word for Christmas. Incarnation.

The fourth candle of the advent wreath represents love. God showed his love for us in sending his Son, born of the flesh as the son of David and born anew in power through his resurrection from the dead as the eternal Son of God.

The LORD brings respite.  He gives light amidst the darkness of living in a dangerous world!
