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

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

Whatever Happened to Susan Pevensie?

Michael J. Kruger | March 8th 2021

If you are a fan of C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, you will know that Susan is one of the main characters in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe—one of the four children who end up as kings and queens of Narnia. But in the very last book of the series, The Last Battle, in a scene which effectively represents heaven, you realize that Susan is not there.... continue reading

When Nurturing Life Feels Like Dying

Liz Wann | March 4th 2021

Sometimes, parenting can just be too much. There are many times when I reach my breaking point. It’s not just the physical needs of my children that are demanding, but their emotional, mental, and spiritual needs as well.... continue reading

3 Joys of Leading by Serving

Rico Tice | February 23rd 2021

Self-sacrifice… service… suffering. These are all part of Christian leadership, because this is Christ-like leadership. And in Mark 10:45 lies the power to live joyfully by a set of leadership values that are utterly incomprehensible to the world.... continue reading

The Rival Gospel of Self

Stephen McAlpine | February 3rd 2021

The cultural ambition is to replicate the kingdom vision of the good life—a future world of human rights, dignity, freedom, love and equality—but all without Jesus at the centre. And, frustratingly for those among us who may wish to see the whole thing come crashing down in order to prove how right we are, this vision appears to be progressing quite well. At least on the surface.... continue reading

Sample Devotion: Surpassing Knowledge

Tim Chester | January 28th 2021

We will never bottom out Christ’s boundless love. But we need to see more and more of his love. Every time we sin, we need to appreciate afresh this love that welcomes sinners. Every time we suffer, we need to appreciate afresh this love that mysteriously works all things for our good. Every time we face temptation, we need to appreciate afresh this love that captures our hearts.... continue reading

How Voices from the Past Can Encourage Us Today

Tim Chester | January 25th 2021

To help fix our gaze on Jesus, we are surrounded by “a great cloud of witnesses”. For the first readers of Hebrews, these witnesses were the saints of the Old Testament, whose faith in God’s promises had sustained them through troubling times and had enabled them to achieve great things in God’s name. But as readers today, we can add names from across the pages of church history to that crowd of cheering spectators.... continue reading

Adrian and Celia Reynolds | January 19th 2021

Indeed, you might think that such a sentence is bordering on blasphemy, or at the very least, it’s pushing the boundaries a little. But that kind of response reveals precisely the problem that many Christians have about sex. Married believers know sex is enjoyable, fun, intimate, delightful: but they can’t quite bring themselves to include it in a list of holy disciplines.... continue reading
