Mrs Jesus Follower…on Paul being adamant

by Mrs Jesus Follower

This week’s pastors ponderings comes from our regular blog writer:  Mrs Jesus follower. You can read more of her writings on CBBC’s website christiesbaptist.org.au   The Church of the Jews and the Gentiles? I paused in my singing and listened to the words of The Creed fill the building and waft out into the street. […]

To know God more

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Mmm…I’m not sure if I agree with that…I thumb through my Bible searching for a passage I read just a few days ago that will prove my point…back my point of view.  Sound familiar or is that just me? Recently Daniel reminded us that our focus…our desire needs to be to know God more. I […]

unity in diversity

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Many years ago I worked in a Christian community where we all came from very different backgrounds…different churches…different types of worship…very different doctrines but this didn’t matter…wasn’t an issue.

The Simple Truth

by A Jesus Follower

Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s the truth…these words kept going through my head. She sat there staring out the window, her little girl playing on the floor beside her. I stood there watching this young mum who was so deep in thought. She’d been telling me of a conversation she’d had with another Christian…it […]

Real Love

by A Jesus Follower

I’ve been thinking. Recently I’ve heard that a Christian leader I highly respect was leading a forum on ‘The Christian response to Terrorism’. While I’d really like to hear that discussion, I began to think about my own attitude. Oh, I pray for our country that we will be protected from such attacks…for the wider […]
