Proverbs 3:1-12 Christian parenting

Today’s sermon by Andrew Purchase was a great refresher on Christian parenting. It made me realise that parenting is not just about providing needs. It is addressing the heart and soul of a child. Like a preacher once said, successful parenting brings the child to Heaven; not necessary Harvard. I encourage you to view theContinue reading “Proverbs 3:1-12 Christian parenting”

Luke 24:1-12 Antidote to Perplexity, Fear and Dismay

As I read Luke 24:1-12 in preparation for this weekend’s sermon at Redemption Hill Church, I am blown away by the clarity of God’s word. In these short 12 verses, the Spirit tells me: The reason for our perplexity, fear, and dismay The solution to these emotions is to remember God’s words Remembering God’s wordContinue reading “Luke 24:1-12 Antidote to Perplexity, Fear and Dismay”

Exo 14:11 Forgetting and Blaming God

They said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us in bringing us out of Egypt? Exo 14:11 The Holy Spirit records the sarcasm that the people of Israel spoke with to Moses, a messengerContinue reading “Exo 14:11 Forgetting and Blaming God”

Luke 23:18-43 Power of Jesus’ Love

Today’s sermon by Simon was mindblowing and brutally honest for all listeners. Totally worth listening to if you have not. It is about the use of Power and now Jesus perfectly uses His. How do we use our power? If I reflect truthfully and honestly, I frequently use my power and influence in a self-centeredContinue reading “Luke 23:18-43 Power of Jesus’ Love”

Luke 23:39 If you are God, save yourself.

These amazing verses reveal to me two possible responses to Jesus’s work on earth. One leads to eternal death; the other leads us into the Kingdom. Scoffers and The First Criminal And the people stood by, watching, but the rulers scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others; let him save himself, if he is theContinue reading “Luke 23:39 If you are God, save yourself.”

Exo 12:36 Favor in the Sight of Others

This text is interesting because it clearly shows me that favor in people’s sight needs to be “given.” It is a gift from God. Here we see a clear, extreme example of such a gift. Egyptians who hated Israelites suddenly showed extreme favor to them, even giving them all their silver and gold jewelry andContinue reading “Exo 12:36 Favor in the Sight of Others”

Luke 22:63-23:17 Innocence and Injustice

Today’s sermon was a great reminder by Andrew Purchase on the extent of injustice Jesus suffered at the hands of the religious and political rulers of His day, for us. This text’s observation is Luke’s succinct record of 4 groups of people expressing their hatred towards our Lord Jesus Christ. Soldiers – mocked, beat, andContinue reading “Luke 22:63-23:17 Innocence and Injustice”

1Pet 2:19-20 Suffering – My Gracious Calling

For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. 1Continue reading “1Pet 2:19-20 Suffering – My Gracious Calling”

Exodus 7:9 Prove Yourself

“When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Prove yourselves by working a miracle,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent.’” Exodus 7:9 Proving myself has always been part of my life. I have been proving I could get into Secondary School by myContinue reading “Exodus 7:9 Prove Yourself”
