John 9:1-41 Empowered by God, Jesus gives sight to the blind man (3,6-7). ‘The Pharisees’ hear the man’s testimony (15). ‘Some of’ them reject the Lord (16,24). There will always be those who refuse to believe in the saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ. They will pour scorn on those who have come to […]Read more "“One thing I know … I was blind, now I see.”"
Jesus loves us so much more than we love Him. In love, He comes to us to draw out from us a greater love for Him. I find great encouragement in the story of the restoration of Peter in John 21. Peter had denied the Lord three times. For each denial, Jesus came to Peter […]Read more "Jesus loves us much more than we love Him."

We are called to choose between the life of fruitful service – ‘gold, silver, precious stones’- and the unfruitful life – ‘wood, hay, straw’(51; 1 Corinthians 3:12-15). We read of ‘the ark of the covenant of the Lord’ being ‘brought to its place, in […]Read more "Do you want to experience God’s glory?"
1 Kings 22:15-53 Ahab’s repentance (21:27) didn’t last long! He continued to live in sin (22:8). He died in shame (37-38). Ahab’s son – Ahaziah – was just like his father – ‘a chip off the old block’: ‘He … provoked the Lord, the God of Israel to anger in every way that his father […]Read more "Let us pray, “Our Father in heaven … Your will be done.”"
