I have no answer

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I stood there listening as our CBBCers prayed. Their prayers were passionate & it was evident that these were Godly people praying Godly prayers. Without a doubt God is hearing and will honour these prayers. But my heart was heavy, my mind full of questions…what difference can we make? Can we do anything to rescue […]

L Plate Christian…it’s a wonderful book

by L Plate Christian

Everyday I read my bible, broken up into new and old testaments. This week, I started reading Ecclesiastes chapter 3. It occurred to me that these were lines from a favourite song of mine, “’tis the season, turn, turn turn” (Peter Seeger), sung by The Byrds..”a time to live, a time to die”. This made […]

I suspect most people have seen this picture before but in case not, let me explain. Depending on your perspective you will either see an old woman or a young lady. Right now I’m sick, so all I can see is old woman—but I digress. I think this picture illustrates what it is to see […]

praying the scriptures

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately…when it all began. It was a season of deep grief as it slowly dawned on me that our happy little “Christian” family wasn’t really as Christian or as happy as it looked. I came across Paul’s prayer in Colossians 1…I took hold of this prayer…it took hold […]

law keeper…or law breaker???

by Random Ramblings

Before I say anything, let me begin by stating categorically that I am as much a failure in these things as anyone you care to name – or choose not to name for that matter. I need to be clear about that because I don’t want anyone reading this to think that I am setting […]

L Plate Christian- what is the truth?

by L Plate Christian

I had to face up to my first condemnation for being a born again Christian a few days ago. People who you think you are friendly with can change in an instant when you say you believe in God. They asked me why I believed that stuff, then they were gone. A few days later, […]

Living as the body of Christ

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Sometimes I get so caught up in the fears and anxieties of what may happen in the future that I miss what has slipped right past me. Take marriage for example. Could future events change what we understand today as a Christian marriage? I thought so… until today when a light suddenly switched on. There […]

God Can

by Mrs Jesus Follower

He held the child close to his breast. It was unthinkable that this tiny perfectly formed child had no life…would never breathe the air he breathed or see the faces of his loved ones gathered round him. His heart was breaking and his tears flowed as he cried, ‘Work a miracle, oh God, and breathe […]

During the week, this prayer was handed in to us here at CBBC. It’s so encouraging to think that while many of us were facing a myriad of different issues, both physical and spiritual, one lady took the time from her busy week to say, ‘Lord what would you like your people to know about […]

I hope you are enjoying our series on Acts. It has been fascinating to see how right from the very start of the Church in Jerusalem they were facing many of the very same things as we are today. They were deciding who the leaders should be, what roles people should do. They were working […]
