DAY 138 Reference text : Act 18:1-3 One thing we often forget is that even though the Christian operates by different principles, laws and precepts that are not earth-borne, living in any territory makes the laws of the land binding in our lives. As long as we are domicile in any place therefore, we have... Continue Reading →
LISTEN TO GOD
DAY 118 Acts 9:13,15 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the... Continue Reading →
HE SPEAKS THINGS INTO BEING
DAY 111 Our text today presents a very interesting dynamic. Even though the entire discourse ends with multiplication of the loaves and fish, it is the conversation between Jesus and Philip that sits at the heart of our reflection.

RECOGNISING GOD’S VOICE
DAY 101 John 20:16 Mary!” Jesus said. She turned to him and cried out, “Rabboni!” (which is Hebrew for “Teacher”). It isn't that Mary did not hear the words the 'supposed gardener' spoke at first.

ALL MEN SEEK YOU
DAY 11 Mark 1:37 And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee. There are traits that draw specific groups of people to you. When you become a teacher, you attract students and when you gain wealth, you attract companions or those who are meant to become beneficiaries of... Continue Reading →
WHAT DOES GOD WANT FROM YOU?
DAY 5 Yesterday, the question Jesus asked the disciples was one we were meant to give careful consideration to: 'what do you want?' And for emphasis, the object of this question was God himself so the question equated to 'what do you want from God'. Today, a follow up question came to mind that I... Continue Reading →
