Prepare kids for leading, not just following

 Children must be encouraged to excel in school, not to compete or feed their ego’s – but because of their sense of calling. Having a multi-generational plan of training our children to be Christian thinkers and practitioners is the most important calling a parent, a school and church has! An understanding of your calling Unfortunately, […]

Have a ‘sit down’

You may be surprised to find out that there are many believers today who do not believe that they have been perfected forever by the finished work of Jesus Christ. They are still depending on their self-efforts to qualify themselves. Only Jesus’ work is a finished work. And not only did He sit down at […]

Don’t abdicate your right to reign in life

”For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:17 The secret of reigning in life lies with receiving everything that Jesus has accomplished for us on the […]

You have to receive, not achieve

As Christians we are often driven to “do, do, do”, forgetting that Christianity is actually about “done, done, done”. God’s ways are contrary to man’s ways. Man thinks that for God to bless him he needs to deserve, earn and merit God’s favour and blessings by his own efforts.  Man thinks that God’s blessings are […]

So have you changed your worldview lately?

Would you say that you have a biblical worldview – based on a thorough understanding of the Bible? Or do you know only a few pet Bible verses that you quote for physical, financial and emotional health, resulting in an unbalanced and a humanistic worldview? These are two opposites of the pole, with many believers […]

“You are always on My mind”

Not only are you always on God’s mind, but He won’t think of you without thinking about His Son, Jesus. It would appear that in God’s mind, man and his Saviour have become one. It almost sounds too good to be true: God associates you with Christ. Therefore it would be impossible for Him to […]

Know this about your right-standing with God

A correct understanding of righteousness causes our lives to stand tall, to be erected, to be set up, to be firmly fastened, and to be made perfect. “In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you.” Isaiah […]

Guilt and shame? Forget about it!

If God chooses never to think about what you did wrong, then why should you hold on to it? I don’t mean that you should pretend sin is not there and carry on living as you want. However, God has so effectively dealt with sin, that he has not only forgiven us, but he has […]

Discover your true identity

You are not who you think you are: You did not begin when you were born, or even when you were conceived. Neither are you just the product of your ancestry. You might have been a surprise to your parents, but it was God who wrote the script of your DNA when he fashioned you […]

It’s an open door policy

If through all your life, you have been afraid to approach God’s throne, then maybe nobody has told you that you’ve been issued with a golden circle ticket – through your standing in Christ. It’s that simple. We have confidence to boldly approach God’s throne, not through our own goodness, but on the basis of […]
