The Rich and the Poor

My Christian brothers, our Lord Jesus Christ is the Lord of shining-greatness. Since your trust is in Him, do not look on one person as more important than another.  What if a man comes into your church wearing a gold ring and good clothes? And at the same time a poor man comes wearing old clothes. What …

Don’t Be Overcome…

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.  In God (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me? (Psalm 56:3,4, NKJV) Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay  God's perfect love casts out fear. When you are afraid, give your fear to Him. Let Him …

The Pure Milk

...desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,  if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious - 1 Peter 2:2, 3, NKJV I remember when I was still breastfeeding, how on one occasion, my son was crying because he was hungry.  When I held him in my arms and he latched on, I saw his eyes …

Janco’s Story (Part Two)

Five years have passed since I took Nasha to the shelter for street children.  A lot has happened within that time.  I'm still handing out tracts but now I'm a Youth leader in my church.  My Mother is back home and she hasn't touch a drink since she checked into the Drug and Alcohol Rehab …

Like a Serpent

He is like a serpent.  He can both enthral and repel with his unusual, piercing eyes.  They seem penetrate deep into a person’s heart with its hidden secrets.  I can't stand him yet I'm attracted to him.  I’ve tried so hard to resist him but I can’t.  Sometimes, I wish I'd never met him. 54 …

Winners and Losers

It's eight o'clock on a Saturday morning.  I'm on my way to buy groceries when my cell vibrates.  I stopped and I pull it out of my handbag.  It's him.  He's texting me.  Tonight still on? I reply, Yes.  See u at 8.  I slip my cell back into my bag and continue walking towards …

Love and Forgiveness

She sat there at the bottom of the steps leading up to the flat she shared with her older sister, her arms wrapped tightly about her as the tears ran down her face. He was engaged! Why didn't he tell her last night when they were together? "What's the matter?"  Caspian asked Denny, his younger …

The Forced Sale

"You sold your land to Marjorie Reynolds?  Why would you do something so stupid?" "I was planning to sell it anyway," he lied.  "I don't want to be tied down anymore." "You could have sold it to anyone but her." "She offered me cash." "What's she got over you, Wade?" Wade turned away to hide …

Direction

A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps - Proverbs 16:9 Have you ever made plans without consulting God first? You decide that you are going to go into missionary work because you saw a program on TV or know someone who is in the mission field but have you asked …
