Courageous Love

2 Timothy 1:7 “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” It’s one of my favourite verses at the moment. It’s definitely been one of my battle Bible verses this year. We have such an incredible and generous God who gives us His love. We don’t need to earn it, He just gives […]

Loving Yourself and Others – Part 2

By Michael Smith In my last devotion I talked about connecting with God, and now I want to talk about connecting with others. What came to my mind when I thought about connecting with others was my men’s group, my recovery group, and my Church, and each of these groups have played a positive impact […]

Loving God – Part 1

By Michael Smith Today, I want to share some thoughts around connecting with God. Luke 10:27 in the NIV says “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind.”   There are a few ways that we can do this. The […]

The Curtain is Torn!

By Kevin Park Don’t we love connecting with people? I do. I love connecting with people because I receive encouragement from them and I give encouragement. It also gives me a sense that I’m not alone. Because of our fast-paced culture, people may forget the importance of meeting others and carry on doing their tasks […]

Excel in Prayer

Jabez prayer: “Oh that Thou wouldst bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, that Thine hand might be with me, and that Thou wouldst keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me…God granted him that which he requested” – 1 Chronicles 4:10 (KJV) Jabez’ most important characteristic was that he was known as […]

Connecting to Jesus

By Jean Griffith I have heard from people that on waking they must have their first cup of coffee before they can start the day. That zap of caffeine is what seems to connect them to become fully awake. No doubt while they’re having that stimulus, they turn on their devices to connect to the […]

We Need Each Other

By Manuele Teofilo  I enjoy meeting up with other Christians. Either at a small group, connect group or even just a coffee catch-up. These are always wonderful opportunities to share encouragement to build each other up. Or to listen to the hardships that our friend is going through and to pray for them. In my […]

The Wise Men Went Together

By Manuele Teofilo  In Matthew 2 it tells us the story about the wise men following the star that led them to the new-born baby. Verse 10 and 11 read, “When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed […]

My Sheep Know My Voice

By Sarah Houston John 10:27 “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them,  and they follow me” (NIV) I was walking in Cornwall Park enjoying seeing the new lambs in the fields, so carefree and content having their mother close by their side. This reminded me I have a Good Shepherd too, who takes […]

What is in your hand?

By Margie Willers So the Lord said to him, “What is in that in your hand?” He said, “A rod.” Exodus 4:2 (NKJV) God had chosen Moses to deliver the children of Israel from Egypt. But Moses immediately began to enumerate all the reasons why he was not qualified to assume such leadership. Then the […]
