Every day Easter

by Mrs Jesus Follower

I’ve been thinking… Easter or Every Day? The cross is the moment where good and evil faced their ultimate battle. It would be going on 50 years since I first really recognised the victory of the cross and the spiritual battle we are in as believers and followers of our Lord Jesus Christ; fifty years […]

some place to call home

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 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 millions […]

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. […]

I have no answer

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 […]

Praying the Scriptures

by A 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 […]

Yes, No or Wait

by A Jesus Follower

I’ve been thinking… As I grabbed my keys and picked up my handbag to race out the door, I flipped over my daily calendar and the comment for the day was, ‘God always answers our prayer with a yes, no or wait a while’. I thought, ‘Mmmm I don’t think I’ve heard those words when […]
