Why I’m pro-Organic Church – Part 2

In part I I described my journey into finding out about organic church to the point of starting to live it out with other believers. However, I did not give a definition of what an organic church is, looks like and how it functions. This post will try to answer some of these questions and hopefully […]

Why I’m pro-Organic Church: My journey – Part 1

As someone who has been experiencing and enjoying Organic Church for some time now, I felt it would be good to finally put some words down. I am writing this series of blog posts for many reasons but primarily because I was inspired to do so by another blog I found (A Former Skeptic: Why […]

The Preeminent Christ – A poem

So I wrote a poem based on Colossians chapter 1. This poem is a proclamation of the greatness and supremacy of Christ and everything He accomplished. May we encounter and enjoy the vast riches of Christ anew. Enjoy.   By Him, Through Him and For Him   By His power according to His plan Through […]

The Way of Humility

The Lord is always teaching us something in our walk with Him. Most times He teaches us a few things at the same time. Other times He will labour a long time on one specific thing until it is learned and assimilated to the point where a specific area of our lives are totally transformed. […]

The Purpose of the Body

In my previous post titled The Body we saw that we are members of Christ’s body. When Jesus spoke to Paul on the Damascus road He asked Paul why he was persecuting Him and at the time Paul was persecuting the believers. We see that Christ makes no distinction between believers and Himself. In fact we […]

The Body of Christ

For most Christian’s the idea that the Church is the ‘Body of Christ’ is acknowledged and even given lip service on occasion. However, I believe that most Christians have failed to see the staggering magnificence of this reality. We have simply given the phrase ‘Body of Christ’ a head nod and filed it away in our theological file cabinets or […]
