Seeing Christ

A few weeks ago I went on a weekend away with my Church family to a campsite/lodging situated in the midst of a nature reserve. The plan was to set aside the Saturday where we would all go off on our own and spend time with the Lord without talking to one another until we […]

Love One Another

Recently, I came across a list of the 59 verses in scripture that have the phrase “one another” as part of the verse. What I found beautiful about these verses are that they show us how we should relate to our fellow brothers and sisters. The repeated use of the phrase “one another”, shows us […]

Jesus on Leadership

In this day and age, there are hundreds of books published every year on the topic of leadership. There are also a multitude of conferences each year on the topic of leadership. The modern idea of leadership is someone who holds a form of authority and is seem as a teacher. Being a Christian leader […]

Book Review: In Search of the City

Earlier this year I came across a blog called “In Search of the City” written by Joshua Lawson. I’ve read quite a few of his blog posts so far and I’ve been impressed by his honesty in dealing with specific topics, his love for others, his exemplary writing skills, and his passion for the Church.

Who Should We Receive Ministry From?

Recently, I have had a number of conversations with brothers and sisters on the topic of who we receive ministry and revelation from. It is evident to me that many Christians only seem to receive and welcome ministry from one or two authors, preachers, or ‘Christian celebrities’. Practically, it’s convenient to find someone you agree […]

Art and the Church

In this post i’m going to attempt to talk about art and how it relates to the Church. This is quite a strange topic for me since I don’t really know much about art. However, I am able to appreciate the beauty and skill behind it. I’m actually the odd one out in my family […]

A Christ-Centered Devotional Poem

A while back I wrote a poem called “The Preeminent Christ” based on Colossians chapter 1 and I’ve decided to share something similar with you. I recently read a blog post called “Christ the Center – Pt. 3: The Heart of the Matter” by David Bolton. In it, David expresses Christ as the center of all […]

A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 2

In my previous post “A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 1“, I initiated a study on the main verses in the new testament that talk about mutual edification. I looked at Romans 14:19, which revealed that Paul speaks about avoiding anything that may cause a brother to stumble and prescribes active mutual edification among the saints. One of the main […]

A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 1

Recently, I had a conversation with a brother about mutual edification. The funny thing is that our conversation that started out as a light hearted dialogue, turned into a more heated debate/argument, which I realized was far from mutually edifying. I hope you see the irony in this. I then started to consider all the […]
