Thoughts on Advent(2) : Believing & Pondering

Blog - Advent 2

In the gospel of Luke, along with a multitude of the heavenly host, an angel announces the birth of Christ to local shepherds. The same shepherds then go to Bethlehem to see the child, recounting the angelic visitation to Mary, Joseph and anyone else who would hear. There was no doubt much excitement and activity around the manger. ...

Thoughts on Advent(3) : Eager Anticipation

Blog - Crown

One thing she said really struck me: “In those days we had to wait for things a lot more than we do now and we put up with hardship along the way. There is something good about anticipation”. Whether it was waiting and saving to buy a house, waiting and saving oneself for marriage or waiting for the war (and rations!) to end there was a goodness about eagerly antic...

Thoughts on Advent (4): Why did Jesus appear?

Blog - advent4

Christmas Day celebrates the birth and appearing of Christ. We think of his incarnation, Immanuel (God with us), the Word made flesh, the Son of God made son of Mary. But why did baby Jesus appear? John tells us: “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). ...

Thoughts on Advent (5): A New Year, Adoption and the Advance of the Kingdom

Blog - advent5

This kind of adopting love also fuels the advance of the kingdom. John says, “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Abide in my love” (John 15:9). Part of abiding in this love is to obey Jesus: “If you love me you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15). And this means bearing fruit that abides, i.e. the fruit of conversions (John 15:16)....

The Idol of "if only..."

Blog - idol4

An idol can be a dream or desire for something to be different: “If only I had a better job”; “If only I could find the right life partner”; “If only my parents had loved me more”; “If only my church would live up to my expectations”; “If only my recommendations had been followed.” These wishes can haunt us and dominate our lives. Can we trust God with ...

Hidden Idols

Blog - idol3

Hidden idols may not reveal themselves for what they are until they are violently wrenched from our hands. When we face a debilitating illness or injury; when our career is abruptly ended by a layoff; when a close relationship is shattered by separation; when a loved one is torn from us by sudden death ...

The Heart of Idolatry

blog - Idolatry

In Romans 3:20, at the end of his shocking description of the universality and horror of sin, the Apostle Paul used the phrase from Psalm 36:1, “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” When there is no fear of God before our eyes, we will turn from him to idols. ...

Be Careful What You Worship

Blog - idol.jpeg

One of the key New Testament texts that teaches this truth is Romans 1:18-32. When we exchange the worship of God for the worship of man-made things ...

Think About These Things

blog - think

Do you find this difficult to do in today’s word? I do. The world bombards our senses with sexual humour and innuendo, LGBT agendas and concerns, messages of greed and self-indulgence just to name a few things that are anything but what Paul is describing in Phil. 4:8. We are besieged by those things that would appeal to our sinful nature and capture our thoughts....
