To love or to condemn?

by Mrs Jesus Follower

How do I respond to those living a lifestyle that makes me uncomfortable? How do they see me? What attitudes am I conveying to them? Praise God for leaders with the courage to speak up and put these challenges out there for us to face. Praise God for those who continually make us think, read, […]

Salvation… the full story

by Mrs Jesus Follower

It happened one day quite suddenly when the pastor was preaching from John’s gospel. I’d been taught from a very young age that the story of salvation began with John 3:16 but something made me flick back to the beginning of the gospel. Why, here was where the story of salvation began; not in chapter […]

How Could They?

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I closed my Bible and sat there for some time lost in thought. I’d been reading Jeremiah and a feeling of sadness so deep and so real had come over me. I love the old testament and frequently reflect on the details God gave Solomon for him to build the temple. This temple was the […]

Courage

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Schantelle’s baptism, a few weeks ago, raised a very interesting perspective that we’d love to share with you to think about. A beautiful young woman, a wife, a mother chose to be baptised the other Sunday. It was a God-honouring service and a joyful celebration of her new life in Christ as we walked to […]

No, Lord, You’ve got the Wrong Person!

by Mrs Jesus Follower

We all settled back to listen as the young woman stood up to share. She’d been working overseas for several years and was now home for her first break. Tentatively she looked around at us and, without warning, burst into tears. I don’t want to go back, she sobbed. I can’t do it anymore.  In […]

There’s Someone at the Door

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Placing my knitting in the basket, I headed for bed. I looked at the clock. Good, I could read for an hour and still get to sleep at a respectable hour. The book I was reading had got to a place where it was difficult to leave. Maybe I could even finish it this evening, […]

I’m Missing the Very Thing

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I woke this morning and felt as if a flicker of a light had come on. Yes, the same old question keeps lurking in the background… why doesn’t God answer my prayer? He does, I know because he says he will. Then, what’s wrong? The verse that had come into my mind this morning was, […]

Out of the Ordinary God speaks!

by Mrs Jesus Follower

There’s a quote I read once from Selwyn Hughes, a 20th century Bible teacher. My goal is God himself… at any cost, dear Lord, by any road. Many of us who read this would say this is also the desire of their heart, but it leaves me thinking God is about to do great things. […]

I wonder…

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Who has the Handicap? He sits tied securely in his wheel chair, arms and legs flailing the air, You try to avoid staring as his mother seeks to give him a drink. It has spilt everywhere – all over him, the floor, the mother’s jacket. Food and drink and saliva are running down his chin. […]

After all, He’s God

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I stepped out of the safety of the hospital onto the dark shadowy path. I felt numb but strangely at peace. It seemed to take forever to reach the end of the dark street and enter the old guest house. It was all so strange…so unreal. I fumbled for the key I’d been given and […]
