Advertising the Gospel

We went into a shop this morning that majors in selling Christian T-shirts. Many of the shirt’s designs are nice, but how much Scripture can you put on a T-shirt? Because of this, many of the designs with their wording could be misconstrued as to the message they were intending to convey. Once again I […]

What Does a Man of God Look Like?

What thought goes through your mind when you hear someone say: “I am a man [or woman] of God”? The reason I pose this question today is because we have heard the self-appointed prophet by the name of Shepherd Bushiri (alias Major One) say he is a man of God. As you are aware, he […]

Yesterday afternoon I took a walk over to our opposite neighbor to hand him a small gift. Whilst we were away last week, he kept an eye on our premises. Although he does not want or desire a gift, we bought something for him at an African Store in Graskop, near Pilgrims Rest. After I […]

Give Thanks

I’m reading a heart-chilling story of a great Chinese pastor who struggled and suffered immensely under the Communist Authorities in China the 1950’s. His name was Tang Ming Tao.

Spiritual Potholes

Our break-away to Chrystal Springs was a wonderful time of seeing beautiful landscapes, lots of animals and birds and most of all relaxing by being away from the normal routine. The N4 has some roads works going and coming, but generally it was good. The road from Belfast through Dullstroom to Lydenberg is much improved […]

What Type of Person Can Forgive?

What is the type of person who can forgive? Can anyone forgive? These are profound questions because the immediate answer tends to lean towards “anyone can forgive”. I want to spend a few days looking at the New Testament Book called Philemon. The basic message of this book is “forgiveness”. But first let me start […]

Abundant Blessings

Have you ever said or thought something like this: “I’m such a sinner though God blesses me far more than I deserve!” This happened to me today. Jenny and I were in Irene with a close friend. We had just ordered cappuccinos for him and Jenny and a Red Grapetizer for myself when I received […]

Causing Crashes

I had a meeting in Midrand today at 1pm. I gave myself adequate time to get there via the N1. Once past the Brakfontein intersection, an ambulance overtook me with lights flashing, traveling at a high speed. After a few kilometers the highway slowed down considerably … to a crawl. By the time I past […]
