Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” The believer’s life is characterized by prayer.

Fire in Our Bones

Jeremiah 20:13 NKJV: “Sing to the Lord! Praise the Lord! For He has delivered the life of the poor from the hand of evildoers.” Each one of us has a favourite food. But not everyone in our friends’ circles likes the same food as us. Yet, we go to great lengths to passionately convince them […]

Mirrors of Christ

2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV) – “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” A photography light reflector bounces existing light and re-directs it back onto the subject. In short, a reflector does […]

Confess and Be Cleansed

1 John 1:9 (NKJV) – “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  First John was written to dispel doubts – and build assurance – by presenting a clear picture of Jesus Christ. Around the time John wrote this letter, false teachers had entered the church. They […]
