The Charge

1 Peter 2:16 “For you are free, yet you are God’s slaves, so don’t use your freedom as an excuse to do evil.”

John 8:33But we are descendants of Abraham,” they said. “We have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean, ‘You will be set free’?” Never been slaves, really? What about the four hundred and thirty years [430 years] in Egypt? If it was for ten years, then they can forget after some generations. Read the rest of this entry

From God

Rom. 8:28 “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”

We will start today’s devotional with our final thought from yesterday which is, Jesus is above all – no exceptions. Jesus is superior to all. John 5:21-23For just as the Father gives life to those he raises from the dead, so the Son gives life to anyone he wants. In addition, the Father judges no one. Instead, he has given the Son absolute authority to judge, so that everyone will honour the Son, just as they honour the Father. Anyone who does not honour the Son is certainly not honouring the Father who sent him.” (emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

The Proof

John 3:2 “He came to Jesus under the cloak of darkness to question Him. Nicodemus: Teacher, some of us have been talking. You are obviously a teacher who has come from God. The signs You are doing are proof that God is with You.” (Voice]

What have you not been able to shake off so far on our study of the Book of John? It is not that you should be able to shake off any part of the Word of God but what sticks for you? The purpose of Bible study is for you to get to know the Bible for yourself. Read the rest of this entry

His Counsel

Ps.32:8 “The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”

On this very day, ten years ago, God’s Favourite House had her first worship experience in the then protea hotel. We thank God for year one, year two, year, three, year four, Read the rest of this entry

Due Him

Dan. 6:3 (NKJV) “Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm.”

Jesus deserves the best of us and the best from us. That is why as a people, and really this should be the same for all Christians, we are big on doing things excellently. Read the rest of this entry

Lord of All!

Matt.16:18 “Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.”

The journey we have been on as a church has been a very interesting one. With a lot of twists and turns, ups and downs. A lot of betrayals but above all triumphs, Read the rest of this entry

Just Right

Jn.14:29 “I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do happen, you will believe.”

Jesus is worthy of Worship, He deserves worship. Jesus is the Messiah and based on the prophecies we can see that this is not just religion. The existence of Jesus is not in doubt, Read the rest of this entry

Jesus Is Lord!

Mark 12:10 “Didn’t you ever read this in the Scriptures? ‘The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone. 11 This is the Lord’s doing, and it is wonderful to see.’”

The next prophecy that we will be considering is, the Messiah would be a priest after the order of Melchizedek. Read the rest of this entry

Prophecy Personified

Isa.9:6 [KJV] “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Is the Lordship of Jesus fact or fiction? Is Jesus just an imaginary friend or is He as real as He has been proclaimed to be? Is Jesus just a figment of our imagination? Read the rest of this entry

The Source

Ex.3: “…Though the bush was engulfed in flames, it didn’t burn up… 14 God replied to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. Say this to the people of Israel: I AM has sent me to you.”

 

God knew Moses was going to ask for His Name and God was ready to answer the question. God knows our hearts even before we speak. In fact, the entire burning bush scenario was set up to answer Moses’ question. Read the rest of this entry
