Today’s thought “Slaves of righteousness” (July 30)

Today’s thought “Slaves of righteousness” (July 30) How challenging are Paul’s words to the Romans – and to us! There is no middle way (which is what Jesus taught!), we are either “slaves of sin” or we “have become slaves of righteousness” (6:17,18). Paul admits he is making the point bluntly, “speaking in human terms,… Read More Today’s thought “Slaves of righteousness” (July 30)

Today’s thought “… and learn from me” (July 10)

Today’s thought “… and learn from me” (July 10) The final verses of Matthew 11 are easy to read, but they are also profound – and demand our meditative understanding. Jesus declares, in apparent prayer to his Father (from verse 25), “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these… Read More Today’s thought “… and learn from me” (July 10)

Today’ Thought “The word … is at work in you believers” (May 17)

“The word … is at work in you believers” As we started reading Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians we cannot help but be arrested in mind – and feel challenged by Paul’s perception of the spirit among the believers there. Paul had “charged (them) to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you… Read More Today’ Thought “The word … is at work in you believers” (May 17)

Today’s thought “God, who gives us the victory through …” (March 2)

Today’s thought “God, who gives us the victory through …” (March 2) I pondered why the above saying rather suddenly occurs in that very moving and oft quoted 1 Corinthians 15. Parts of this chapter are often read at funerals; it contains a powerful testimony to the certainty of resurrection and that “in Christ shall… Read More Today’s thought “God, who gives us the victory through …” (March 2)

Today’s thought “God has come to test you …” (February 10) Exodus 19 + 20 We read today in great detail of the arrival of the people of Israel at Mount Sinai on “the third new moon” (Exodus 19:1).

Today’s thought “Lift up your eyes and see – God shall know it” (January 18)

In today’s reading Genesis 31 we hear about a dream of Jacob and him knowing that the father of Rachel and Leah did not regarded him with favour as he did before. But he also knew that the God of his father had been with him all the time (verse 4-5) In this chapter of… Read More Today’s thought “Lift up your eyes and see – God shall know it” (January 18)

Today’s thought “… and have no knowledge” (July 24)

Today’s thought “… and have no knowledge” (July 24) Today we continued reading Jeremiah and saw the exchange of words between the Lord and the prophet. There is no genuine spirituality left among the people, it is all a sham – yet the prophet appeals to God to act to relieve the terrible famine that… Read More Today’s thought “… and have no knowledge” (July 24)

Today’s thought “… a separation between you and your God” (July 3)

Today’s thought “… a separation between you and your God” (July 3) Isaiah’s message keeps returning to the theme of the need for reality in human thinking about their relationship with God. Belief in God in those days was not like it is with so many today, indeed in some countries today the majority do… Read More Today’s thought “… a separation between you and your God” (July 3)

Today’s Thought “Increasing in the knowledge of God” (May 14)

Today’s Thought “Increasing in the knowledge of God” (May 14) Is your knowledge of God increasing? We live in a world in which all kinds of knowledge multiplies as never before – human cleverness appears to know no bounds! Sadly – at the same time, awareness and acknowledgement of God is decreasing at an astonishing… Read More Today’s Thought “Increasing in the knowledge of God” (May 14)

Today’s thought “You stiff necked people” (April 30)

Today’s thought “You stiff necked people” (April 30) Stephen’s speech (in Acts 7) before the Jewish Council is a history lesson! Why? For what purpose? He reviews all that had happened since the time of Abraham. But the members of the Council would have known their history? But was it just academic knowledge to them?… Read More Today’s thought “You stiff necked people” (April 30)

Today’s thought “… his word abiding in you” (April 13) Today we began reading the detailed teaching of Jesus that is special to the Gospel of John.

How should we worship God? #3 Spiritual Transformation

Spiritual Transformation The two things have to go together.

Today’s thought “I … could not address you as spiritual people” (February 21)

Our five chapters today were intensely thought-provoking. First, the utterly remarkable and challenging relationship of Moses (and the people through Moses) with the Lord who had delivered them from Egypt. Second, the Psalms of Moses (90,91); “So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom” (90:12): then noting the… Read More Today’s thought “I … could not address you as spiritual people” (February 21)
