Taking a Gamble
How many times has it happened over the past few weeks? I’m accosted by a smiling lady as I leave the supermarket.‘Hi, We’re raising funds for the local hospital. Would you like to buy a lottery ticket?’ One of the neighbours’ children is standing on the doorstep looking hopeful. ‘We’ve got a raffle going at school for the new gym. Do you want to win a prize?’ 
Uncertainty
As we enter 2019, it feels to me as if the New Year is marked by a huge degree of uncertainty – perhaps more so than any previous year that I remember during my life.
Dreams
Some Christians put a great emphasis on dreams. They try to remember their dreams; they write them down each morning before they can forget them; they try to unravel what all the strange things they see in their dreams might mean; they expect God to show them the future through dreams; they look to God to give them guidance in their dreams.
Made for Man: The Sabbath Today
I think the question of the Sabbath is crucially important. If believers take on board the idea that they don’t need to set apart one day in seven as “holy to the Lord”, they are throwing away one of God’s greatest gifts.
Giving to Charities – A word of caution
When did you last give to charity? Perhaps it was when you were shopping on the high street. A collector was standing at the shop doorway shaking a box.

What is a Christian?

  • My GOD is REAL

    Can you trust a God who lets you get cancer?

  • Ana

    21 Jun 14

    I did not know much about Jesus Christ and those ideas I had were taken from films. I did not know why He had to die and what this had to do with me. I thought He died like a martyr, like many other martyrs, because of his belief.

  • Matthew

    21 Jun 14

    It was the things inside that really defined me, outside was just a façade for what was lurking inside. When I first came to Jesus and He pointed out my flaws I was devastated, I was wretched…
