Being Dead

Being Dead

A little bit pregnant? A little bit alive? A little bit dead? Nope! You are either are or you are not. So why do we expect godly behaviour from those who are not alive in Christ?

I'll Do My Best and God Can Do The Rest

I'll Do My Best and God Can Do The Rest

I do my best to be the wife, the mother, the friend that God wants me to be but I cannot escape the fact that God is The One who holds my future in His hands, despite what I do or don’t do. Do your best and leave God to the rest. Our hope is in Him. He is the great Healer, the restorer. He is our Saviour, Our Lord and our Master. He is more than capable. Share His goodness with your children every day. Yes train them, guide them, discipline them. But always be pointing to His goodness, His strength, His power, and His sovereignty. This is the way to teach your children that they are saved by grace, not works.

Grace: Received, Not Achieved.

Grace: Received, Not Achieved. What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it? 1Corinthians 4:7 Why, oh why do I (man) like to think that I have something, just a little something, to do with my salvation. Do I not realise that in...

Our goal is to love God and glorify Him forever – in the midst of spilled Weetbix and poopie nappies and children that can’t spell.

Freedom versus Bondage

Freedom versus Bondage

There are things that I struggle with in my life. Some things I have even had to set boundaries for. These boundaries give me the opportunity for accountability…they help me to be strong in areas that I am weak. Rules, boundaries, safe-guards, guidelines, do’s, do not’s…call them what you will but they are boundaries

Teaching Character or a Code

Teaching Character or a Code

I don’t use the word of God to teach a set rules/code of behaviour but I will proclaim the message of God and trust that the Holy Spirit will teach them what He wants to teach them. Their salvation is not dependent upon me teaching every character trait. It is dependent upon God! I can’t teach someone into salvation. What is the point, the goal of teaching the children? Is it that they become fine, moral, upstanding citizens or to usher them into the presence of the Almighty God? Two different issues and two different ways to go about it.

Grace: 3

Grace: 3 We have seen and learned about the unavoidable wrath that is to come for all man, and that no matter how much we might try to strive to reach God or to please Him, we cannot do so. We have learned that it isn’t what you know but who you know. We have learned...

Living by Rules

Living by Rules “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.? Ephesians 2:8-9 Law. Rules. Trying to live according to them. Does funny thing to people eh. Here in our city, we are heading...
