Not A Watchmaker

Not.A.Watchmaker

In one of her biggest hit songs, Bette Midler sings that God is watching us from a distance. It's a beautiful song, except that it's not true. God's not watching from a distance; he is personally engaged in the details of our lives....

What's the greatest benefit of the of gospel? Forgiveness? Justification? Eternal life? Perhaps the greatest benefit God blesses us with is that we are adopted into the family of God and inherit all the privileges and responsibilities that go with being sons of God....

Heart and Soul

Heart and Soul

Over the years, 'Heart and Soul' has been a common theme in pop music: lovers express the intensity of their feelings for another as encompassing the totality of our being, captured in the phrase 'heart and soul'. The song writers may not know they're quoting Moses, who used this phrase as a way of encapsulating appropriate devotion to God....

Playing With Fire

Slide1-10

Israel’s sinful idolatry led to a distortion of true worship and brought about God’s righteous condemnation. Idolatry is dangerous because it distorts our view of God and corrupts our behaviour, leading us away from God as He has revealed Himself and toward a false god who is powerless to save and transform us. In response to Israel’s just condemnation, Moses stepped...

An Encounter With God

Encounter with God

Have you ever felt like running away and hiding from God, his people, and his purposes? That's exactly where Moses was. His failure was so large he assumed he was irredeemable. The good news is that God creates us on purpose and fills us with purpose in Christ, but we are easily knocked off course by our own desires or our failures. In his love and mercy God finds us, reac...

Faith in a Faithful God

Faith in a Faithful God

Sometimes when we look at the pain of our past, or it seems like God is not with us in the present, we question whether he will be faithful to his promises about the future. Scripture teaches that God is faithful to heal our past, to be with us in the present, and to fulfil his plans for our future. ...

Dreams, Darkness, Destiny

Dreams Darkness and Destiny

Children are inspiring because their dream-machine has not yet been damaged. They live with the hopefulness that if they can dream it, it can happen. Somehow life seems to relentlessly torpedo our instinctive dream machine until it is broken, domesticated, or forgotten. ...

Time for a Change

Time For Change

The gradual change in colour, and then the disappearance, of leaves from tress during the autumn season is a reminder that change is a built-in component of human life. But sometimes we need a different kind of change - a change we can't produce, a change that can only be effected by God. This is what Jacob needed in Genesis 32....

Digging Wells and Building Altars

Post_DiggingWells

Living in dry places is difficult unless you have access to springs of water. God has given us covenant promises including his perpetual presence. Time, tradition, neglect and doubt can cover over these wells and block access to God's provision. Following Jesus involves learning how to dig wells and build altars. ...

In His Image

The story of creation doesn't end with beautiful earth, amazing animals, majestic mountains and serene seas. In the beginning, God created everything - including people. Genesis 1:26 teaches that we were made in the image of God. What does this mean? Not only has God shared dimensions of his being including intellectual, emotive, and relational capacity, Genesis describes ...

An Evening Prayer

The idea of a vesper - an evening prayer of thanks and consecration, is more than a good idea - it's something that God's people seem to have done in many places in the Bible. One example is Psalm 141, where David prays and lifts his had to God as an evening sacrifice. I came across this vesper (evening prayer) from the Canadian and American Reformed Church, and thought it...
