Weekly Devotion 22nd October 2017

“Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 Here is a reminder to us that we who belong to God are surrounded by a world that will corrupt us and if we are not careful, we will be squeezed and shaped by the worldly values that are advancing upon us. When we do not take heed to this warning from Scripture, and continue to be in the company of people who do not know Christ nor fear God, then we are exposing ourselves to danger! They are bad company. They will undermine our faith […]

“With God we will gain the victory, and He will trample down our enemies.” Psalm 108:13 It is natural that we should all want to be successful in life. Different people take different approaches towards success. For the psalmist, success lies with God. It is by faith in God that we shall have the victories of life that will bring success. For the psalmist, victory is not just physical health, or financial security or a successful relationship. It is in all these dimensions, and in the spiritual life as well! Only God has the power to overcome the […]

Weekly Devotion 8th October 2017

“But you dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.” Jude 20 God’s desire is that we be built up in the most holy faith – faith in the Gospel of Christ. We Christians should never become complacent believing that we are ‘okay’. Instead we are to seek to grow in grace and in the knowledge of Christ. In this life on earth, we grow and keep on growing. And as, the growth in spiritual life is seen in our communication with God through our prayer life. We are to pray […]

Weekly Devotion 1st October 2017

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.” Romans 8:14 (NLT) Week by week, again and again, we have been reminded by the testimonies of our brothers and sisters in Christ, that God is moving in our midst.  The journey in life for the Christian is a great and exciting journey. It is an adventure in faith as we take up the courage to lay down our natural desires to follow the Word of God, and the prompting of the Spirit of God. It is as we move with God, in […]

“For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves.” Colossians 1:13 Satan rules the dominion of darkness. Once we were under the power of Satan, for we were sinners, rebels against God. We were in the darkness of sin, and as sinners were under the curse of death. Humanity was helpless and without hope. Whilst we were yet rebels and enemies of Almighty God, He showed His mercy towards […]

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak” Isaiah 40:29 The source of that strength and power is for those who know their God. These blessings will come to those who are prepared to ‘wait upon the Lord’. It means that we be willing to go through the routines of life having God on our mind, and trust in Him in our hearts. To wait upon the Lord is to dare to believe that when the right time comes, […]

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7 Many of us see fear as a natural reaction to circumstances that threaten our well-being. So we try our best to work out a solution. And yet despite our best effort, we still worry about it. The timid person is one who is easily intimidated – easily threatenedy. Whether we call it shyness, or worry, or anxiety or concern, or whatever, the underlying fact is till the same: there is no peace because fear lurks in our […]

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone and the new has come.”2 Corinthians 5:17 Faith in Jesus Christ brings us all into a new life, a life in an entirely new dimension. We are born again into Christ, as a child of God and into God’s family. To be a Christian is to be a follower of Christ. By faith we follow Him as He guides us into that new life with God as Father. So it is not about believing in a set of laws, or holding onto a […]
