Today’s thought “God not living in houses” (April 29)

In the readings of yesterday and the day before yesterday we could see how the apostles got themselves in trouble by talking about Jesus and doing wonders in the name of God. In yesterdays reading (Acts 6) we read how the religious leaders called false witnesses to be able to punish those followers of Christ.… Read More Today’s thought “God not living in houses” (April 29)

Today’s thought “Counted worthy to suffer dishonour” (April 25)

Acts tells how the numbers of believers in Christ multiplied rapidly. The pouring out of God’s Spirit on the day of Pentecost was being manifested in dramatic ways. Jesus had said he would be with them through the Spirit “that will guide you into all the truth” (see John 16:12-14). So the Apostles are able… Read More Today’s thought “Counted worthy to suffer dishonour” (April 25)

Today’s thought “I know your works” (December 22)

Today we completed reading the letters to the seven ecclesias that are featured in Revelation 2,3. Each letter begins with the declaration by Christ, “I know your works”. The ecclesias which received the greatest commendations for their works are the ones experiencing the greatest trials! This is ‘food’ for careful thought: let’s meditate on the… Read More Today’s thought “I know your works” (December 22)

Today’s thought “Standing up for the faith” (December 20)

In this world where more people are interested in worldly matters, mostly material matters, having not much fertile ground for spiritual matters, it is not always easy for a follower of Christ to stand firm in the faith. The apostle Jude felt he had to write to his fellow brethren to ask them to stand… Read More Today’s thought “Standing up for the faith” (December 20)

Today’s thought “Who is able to … and to present you” (December 20)

Today we read the 25 verses of the epistle of Jude. He describes himself as the brother of James. It is reasonable to conclude this James is the one who is the chief spokesman of the believers in Jerusalem (Acts 15:13) and are both sons of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Judging by the urgency… Read More Today’s thought “Who is able to … and to present you” (December 20)

Today’s thought “What sort of people ought you to be …” (December 15)

As Peter completes his second letter he asks a question “Since all these things are thus to be dissolved what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of the Lord …” (3:11,12). What is to be dissolved? He writes that… Read More Today’s thought “What sort of people ought you to be …” (December 15)

Today’s thought “If these qualities are yours” (December 14)

Ah, that little word – “IF”! Our quotation above is from 2 Peter 1. Today we read Peter’s final message as he realises he is soon to die.

Today’s thought “Darker days, presents and Love for others” (December 13)

Yesterday we mentioned the difficulties that we, Christadelphians, but also the Jeshuaists and Jews may experience in Belgium and France, and how we must always respond positively to that resistance. We must, above all, avoid the negativeness towards us through our positive, loving attitude. As Christadelphians, like Jeshuaists, are real Christians, or followers of Christ… Read More Today’s thought “Darker days, presents and Love for others” (December 13)

Today’s thought “Not by man but With God is the sum total of all wisdom and of all power” (December 10)

From friends you must have it. They may speak wisely but also can utter foolishness. Job tells his friends that they take an attitude as if they know everything. His friends might be the voice of the people. Job warns them that when they die, wisdom will die with them.
