But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

“Gift Time”

Written by

At Christmas we “exchange” gifts. We feel embarrassed if we receive a gift from someone and we do not have a gift to give in return. We will go to great lengths to find some gift to give in return. This is rather a pity, but there is very little we can do about it, because there is...

Reconciliation

Written by

It still amazes me how easily children fall out with one another. One  does one little thing to offend the other, then there is retaliation on the part of the other. Then there follows an escalating process of ‘tit for tat’ until  one ends up in tears. But I am also amazed how...

The true believer is not afraid of being searched by the scriptures; indeed he or she wants this searching, and wants confirmation from the bible that they are true believers, RightWithGod.

It is sobering experience to read some of the things that Jesus says about the last day of what we call history, that is, the day of judgement. He always warns about the suddenness and unexpectedness of the arrival of that day. He emphasises the ordinariness of things, until the very moment...
