New Creature, New Covenant

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17). This article complements the long article on 1 Corinthians 7, titled ‘A Hard Teaching’.  There were some things said that need to […]

A Hard Teaching

Introduction Over the last few weeks, I’ve been meditating on Paul’s teaching and God’s commandments concerning marriage.  As one seeking answers, and also seeking to minister to others like myself who have pondered on this great topic, I desired to know God’s will on the matter.  Over 40 […]

To Him Who Is Worthy

Lover, you may have me I hold nothing from you, But the portion of my heart Which is the Lord’s – My First Love. And my spirit and soul Which are in His hands. My mind and will are mine To choose to love you everyday To walk […]

They Make Sense!

I feel like someone in love.  You know that feeling when every song you hear reminds you of the one you love, and you swoon because of the feeling in your heart, as each word rings true.  Those who are not in love don’t get it.  They hear […]

The Child Within

Today, I’d like to celebrate the child within. That’s the inner child that’s in everyone of us. We can truly relate to children, when we are able to tap into our inner child. We can not empathise with something we have no understanding of…and fortunately for us, we […]

The Sacrifice of Ministry

“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things” (1 Cor 13:11). There comes a point in every person’s life when they know they have to […]

The Battle For The Mind

Below is something I read this morning by Rick Warren, in his daily devotional series.  The message is an old lesson, but still a major obstacle for many believers. We may want to relate with the world so that we can understand them and minister to them, but […]

Settling The Argument

We’ve had repeated arguments About this thing called ‘masturbation’… I’ve presented my thoughts And justified what seems natural, But my spirit is not succumbed. It believes in a higher way. God compels me to rethink each time. He shows me that masturbation Is but a brief pleasure… It […]

The Last Man Standing

If God was a comedian, He would be the last man standing!  He has such an amazing sense of humour, which is clearly evident in nature.  Sometimes, I can’t help laughing at what the Lord has done, or at myself when I wake up to the realisation that […]

Where Was God?

That must be the most asked question around.  From Atheists to Believers, at any point in time, someone going through a hardship or immense trial is asking – ‘where is God?’.  We all sort of expect Him to show up just when we need Him, only when we […]

The People-Pleaser and the Rebel

Both the people-pleaser and the rebel are alike in that neither are free.  They are probably the saddest, most miserable people on earth, because they are slaves to their own imaginations.  The former is a slave to other people’s expectations (and spends his/her life TRYING to conform), while […]
