Standing on Faith in the Storms of Life
Devotional Journal Now Available
“If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.” - St Augustine.
“If I had never joined a Church till I had found one that was perfect, I should never have joined one at all! And the moment I did join it, if I had found one, I should have spoiled it, for it would not have been a perfect Church after I had become a member of it. Still, imperfect as it is, it is the dearest place on earth to us.”
Devotions and Studies from Fueling Faith
When we see images of Jesus hanging on the Cross at Calvary, we are reminded that He died to pay the price for our sins, to take upon Himself the wrath of God that through Him we might be washed clean of the stain of sin. But there is something more that we need to think about when we look at the Cross – the suffering that Jesus endured. The suffering that enables Him to say to us, “I understand your pain.” The Bible paints a vivid picture of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and there have been numerous television and film adaptations of the event. Countless artists have painted pictures depicting the torture, the pain and the suffering etched onto the face of our Lord and Saviour. Even non-believers are likely to have at […]
Fueling Your Faith
Who is the most important person in your life? Your spouse or partner? Your kids? Your parents? In the world in which we live, those are probably the most natural and predictable responses. For some people, it may not even be a person that occupies the top spot in their lives – it might be their job, a pet or even an addiction. As Christians, however, we need to consider carefully our answer to this question – and the implications that our answers have on our faith walk. In Matthew 10:37, Jesus makes a statement that many Christians struggle to accept and / or apply to their lives. The NIV version says this: “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter […]
Do you want to go to hell? What would you do if Jesus walked into the room right now? I hear these questions being asked of non-believers, or those sitting on the fence between sin and salvation, all the time, and I recognize the validity of those questions – in some contexts. But in asking those particular questions in the course of evangelism, are we selling people short? I don’t believe that frightening people into making a declaration of faith that they neither truly believe nor understand is what Jesus intended when He gave the Great Commission. Yes, people need to be made aware of the consequences of living on the wrong side of the fence – but telling them that if they don’t pray the sinner’s prayer, they’re going to hell is not the […]
Redefining Church Series
Acts 2:42-47 tells the story of how those who became followers of Jesus after Peter’s first preach on the Day of Pentecost formed a community that later became known as the church. Modern Christians and theologians call it the Early Church to differentiate this stage of the church from the other stages that it went through during history. Over the last eight weeks, we’ve been looking at concepts that the early believers modelled and what we can learn from them if we wish to Redefine Church in the modern age. In this final instalment, Concept #8, we’re going to take a look at how the Early Church Praised God as part of their community. Read: Acts 2:46-47 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and […]
