Today’s thought “Through faith and patience” (December 1)

How much patience do people have today? In most cases, very little, at least that is so in this country. Life is lived in a constant “hurry’ – you can perceive a sense of urgency in many – this life is all I have, let me enjoy it as much as possible as the future… Read More Today’s thought “Through faith and patience” (December 1)

Today’s thought “A person who calls himself a Christian should not be doing things that are wrong” (November 25)

In this world we encounter lots of people who say they are a Christian. But when we look at their behaviour we could wonder if they could be worthy to call themselves Christian. We may encounter lots of Christians who call other names or who say others shall burn in hell for ever. They love… Read More Today’s thought “A person who calls himself a Christian should not be doing things that are wrong” (November 25)

Today’s thought “Nourished in the words of the faith not falling away from the faith” (November 22)

We should remember that the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that not always people shall be willing to follow the right teachings of Christ Jesus and that in the last times some in the church will turn away from Christ and become eager followers of teachers with “devil-inspired ideas”. These teachers will tell lies with… Read More Today’s thought “Nourished in the words of the faith not falling away from the faith” (November 22)

Today’s thought (September 03): “That was to make us rely … on God”

In 2 Corinthians Paul writes of his experiences of afflictions and the comfort God gives him to cope with them. Paul’s comfort is also founded on the comfort believers give to each other. “The father of mercies”, writes Paul, “comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who… Read More Today’s thought (September 03): “That was to make us rely … on God”

Today’s Thought (August 31): In your thinking be mature

1 Corinthians 14 completes the Apostle’s message about Spirit Gifts. Paul is exhorting them to use the spirit gifts they were privileged to possess properly. The first verse stresses, “Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy”. Prophecy does not mean to predict the future but to speak to and… Read More Today’s Thought (August 31): In your thinking be mature

Today’s thought “The manifestation of the spirit for …” (August 30) We have come to that part of Paul’s letter to the Corinthians which is about the gifts of the Spirit which were possessed among the believers there.

Today’s thought Good and bad traditions (August 29)

Today’s thought Good and bad traditions (August 29) The word “tradition” can arouse a negative attitude in our minds because of the way Jesus condemns the religious leaders in the Gospels for their traditions; he told them “you leave the commandment of God and hold the tradition of men” (Mark 7:8). The word “tradition” is… Read More Today’s thought Good and bad traditions (August 29)

Today’s thought “Have you found me, Oh my enemy?” (August 26)

“Have you found me, Oh my enemy?” This saying was spoken by Israel’s evil king Ahab when Elijah challenged him over Naboth’s vineyard. Ahab’s evil wife Jezebel had organised the death of Naboth. Elijah had only found Ahab because God had directed him, he was acting for God. Let us always be aware, as Ahab… Read More Today’s thought “Have you found me, Oh my enemy?” (August 26)

Today’s thought “Do you not know that …” (August 25)

Four times this phrase is used by Paul in 1 Corinthians 6. The Corinthians were becoming spiritually blind to the follies that they had slipped back into. It happened then and it happens today. It appears to be worse among those who proclaim that once you are saved you are always saved, regardless of the… Read More Today’s thought “Do you not know that …” (August 25)

Today’s Thought (August 18): “You do not know when the time will come”

Today we read what is known as ‘The Olivet Prophecy’. This was given by Jesus specifically to his disciples as they sat on the Mount of Olives looking down on the temple. He had shocked them by saying the temple was soon going to be destroyed. Much of Mark 13 is about the coming destruction… Read More Today’s Thought (August 18): “You do not know when the time will come”

Today’s thought “In vain do they worship” (August 12)

Although atheism is rife in many countries, but worshipping God in a way He does not care for is also a problem. We must not be judgmental, which is God’s prerogative, but we cannot help seeing some of the differences between first century Christianity and that which exists today. Our first aim must be to… Read More Today’s thought “In vain do they worship” (August 12)

Today’s Thought (August 02): God’s mercy upon all

God’s judgements are necessary surgical operations. His mercy is over all His works; and this mercy falls first on Israel. A divine transformation is wrought upon the people whose stony-heartedness has become proverbial, and whose whole history is a testimony of waywardness. The few great and godly men that the nation has produced, among whom… Read More Today’s Thought (August 02): God’s mercy upon all
