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, […]

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 […]

A Darkened Room

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Some time ago I stopped to ask myself…how do I picture a true Church of the New Testament to look like today?  What would they see if someone were to stumble into it? The picture that came to me was a church in prayer…but it wasn’t a church as we know it today… it was […]

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. […]

Could this be you?

by Mrs Jesus Follower

The following is an extract from a day in the life of a CBBC volunteer:  Could this be you? I dropped the shopping onto the kitchen bench, scrubbed my hands and pulled an apron over my head.  Flicking the kettle on I wandered into the Hall where a jumble of happy voices floated toward me. […]

being transformed

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Being transformed into His image… 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.  Sound familiar or is that just me? Recently, Daniel reminded us that our focus…our desire needs to be to know God more. […]

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 […]

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 […]
