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 “Overcome evil with good” (August 3)

Today’s thought “Overcome evil with good” (August 3) Chapter 12 of Paul’s letter to the Romans abounds with challenging principles – these are a wonderful guide to our lives. The chapter is, in a sense, summarised by its final words, that followers of Jesus should “overcome evil with good”.

Today’s thought “Speaking the truth in love” (October 6)

Today’s thought “Speaking the truth in love” (October 6) How wonderful to know what is true – the Truth that the Bible alone reveals. Yet how often do we see examples in history of such knowledge causing people to be “puffed up” and pleased with themselves – an attitude which undermines their privilege in understanding… Read More Today’s thought “Speaking the truth in love” (October 6)

Today’s thought June 19: This is love, that we walk …

What is love? As we read the aged disciple John’s final two short Epistles, his use of the word “love” jumps out at us. He writes how, “I rejoiced greatly to find some of your children walking in the truth … and this is love, that we walk according to his commandments” (2 John:4,6).

Today’s Thought “Love that issues from a pure heart” (May 22)
