02 November 2016

In a small dusty cave on the shores of the Dead Sea, two young Bedouin boys found one of the most remarkable archaeological finds of the twentieth century, the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Dead Sea Scrolls are the oldest scrolls of the Bible ever found. It is a miracle in itself that they have survived…

Rule #43 – Be Real!

03 October 2016

Hypocrites draw attention to themselves, authentic people change lives. Jesus lived and grew up in a small village called Nazareth, with a population of about two thousand people. Jesus and his family lived there because of the plentiful building work taking place in the nearby city of Sepphoris. Sepphoris was located about 6 kilometres from…

Rule #53 – Destroy the Escape Clause

23 August 2016

One thing we consistently do in our walk of faith is provide ourselves with escape clauses. Escape clauses are the reasons we give ourselves for not doing what the Word of God instructs us to do. We have all used them and in the midst of our busyness, pain, despair, triumph and problems it all…

Rule #34 – Eternity

20 April 2016

I enjoy watching a good Sci-Fi movie; it is an escape from reality and often deals with themes that dip into the spiritual. These themes or topics challenge our thinking and give us an alternate reality of the future. One of my favourite themes, when done well, is time travel. If only we could control…

Rule #103 – God Has Your Gift and Calling Already Identified

01 April 2016

One of the biggest struggles in life is the struggle for identity. Who are we? Where do we fit? What are we meant to do with our lives? We watch others, we strive and we struggle to find our way. David the shepherd boy was alone, forgotten and thought little of by his father, but…
