Hospitality Wasn’t Meant to be Comfortable

Carolyn Lacey | April 15th 2021

In Luke 10, an expert in Jewish law asks Jesus how he can gain eternal life. It sounds like a good question, but the lawyer is testing Jesus. He knows he should love God with all his heart, soul, mind and strength, and love his neighbour as himself—the problem is he doesn’t. So, to justify his lack of love, he asks, Who is my neighbour? Who is it I’m called to love as myself?... continue reading

Hospitality doesn’t need to break the bank—or your back!

Carolyn Lacey | April 13th 2021

The Bible calls all followers of Jesus to “practise hospitality”—and to do it “without grumbling” (Romans 12 v 13; 1 Peter 4 v 9). But it doesn’t link hospitality with expense, exhaustion—or even an extroverted personality. Rather, it reveals a God who overflows with generous, compassionate welcome to undeserving people. It invites us to accept his welcome—and then share it with others.... continue reading

How Weakness Qualifies You to Share The Gospel

Rebecca Manley Pippert | April 8th 2021

To be human—to be dependent—is wonderful in God’s eyes! That is why we must never despise our smallness, since the Son of God became “small” when he became human. His birth is a tremendous validation of how good it is to be human. Christ becoming flesh “hallows all flesh,” as the poet Charles Williams said.... continue reading

Stress: Taking Every Thought Captive

Helen Thorne | April 6th 2021

Many of our circumstances hurt and cause us significant stress. It’s right that we lament. It’s good and proper that we take our burdens and our pain to the Lord and, like David in Psalm 86, tell him how weak we are feeling and how much we need his help. The Christian is not called to stoicism. We don’t need to pretend we’re OK.... continue reading

Should We Look up to Christian "Heroes"?

Bethany McIlrath | March 30th 2021

When you compare Old Testament figures like Sampson or David to Jesus, it’s hard to justify using the same terminology. No human being in the Bible compares to Christ. No Christian who has lived since does either. So is it right to look up to “heroes” discussed in the Bible? Is it helpful? And what about believers who lived long after the canon of Scripture was complete? Or those who live today? Is it right to have Christian heroes at all?... continue reading

Reflections on the Christlike leadership of John Stott

Rico Tice | March 25th 2021

What is John Stott’s legacy in this, the hundredth year since he was born? We could think of his preaching, his writing, his evangelism or his impact on student ministry. But more than any of those, I think his greatest legacy may be his personal godliness.... continue reading

Get your thinking right at the start of each day

Rico Tice | March 23rd 2021

I’m very intentional first thing in the morning about getting my thinking in place. I read my Bible before I look at my technology. In my quiet time, I work through my own mini-catechism.... continue reading
