Dearly Beloved,


"Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart" (1 Samuel 16:7 NIV).

"Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment" (John 7:24 NIV).

Samuel was a great man of God. Some Bible scholars have said that only Moses was greater than him in the leadership history of the…

The Opposite


The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

Why Sould I Give To God !

The Apostle Paul teaches how important 'thanksgiving' is to God as he writes to the church of Corinth. In Paul's letter to the Corinthians he states, '' Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness , which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. For the administration of this service not only supplieth the wants of the wants of the saints , but is also by many thanksgiving unto God; While by the of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection into the gospel of…

A meditation and a prayer for all those in Pakistan and Kenya who suffered this week.

24 September, 2013 

"It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last". Luke 23:44-46

These famous words are usually only associated with Jesus when He was on the cross. In fact they were first spoken by King David. It was the…

To Minister in the Fullness Of The Holy Spirit

A church that wants to minister in the fullness of the Holy Spirit will follow the biblical mandate to , anoint them with oil, lay hands upon them, and trust God in  faith for healing . James admonished us, '' Confess your trespasses to one another, and one another, that you may be healed . The effective, fervent of a righteous man avails much '' ( James 5:16 ) . This verse clearly advises us to first take care of our sin problems and then believe God for healing . God bless you all and have…

I Disagree To A Point


Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.

We love because He first Loved us

The greatest challenge of a preacher is “can you make the congregation fall in love with Jesus?” Because, when they fall in love with Jesus, everything comes easy. They will love their neighbors + God + Obedience to the Law comes easy. Just like this quote: “the only reason I don’t want to commit adultery is because I love my wife and I love my Lord”.

We are merely human being and we need reasons to love, in everything and in anything. We are not capable of loving anyone or loving…

The Spirit Of Truth

Jesus said, '' When he, the of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. " ( John 16;13) The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual man makes judgments about all things; but he himself is not subject to any man's ; '' For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may…

Dearly Beloved,


“...I will build My church...” (Matthew 16:18 NKJV).

The word church has been used to mean many things. The term “church” can be referred to at least four meanings: one, a building used for public Christian worship; two, a local group of Christians…
