Faith Through Suffering

It’s difficult to see loved ones from church suffering with serious health conditions. But it’s such a relief to know that despite all they are going through, God loves them, and has a place for them with Jesus in heaven. In the meantime, during this earthly existence, we have to have faith. We must be … Continue reading

By His Stripes We Are Healed

O Lord of power and glory, Have mercy on my soul! You are the God of covenants, Who promises salvation for your people. In days of old, Lord, You gave the law to your servant Moses, You carved your commandments On tablets of stone. Your chosen people Israel Were richly blessed by your mercy, And … Continue reading

Evidence for Jesus’ Divinity

In the New Testament there are many instances which reveal that Jesus had the supernatural ability to know others completely even when meeting them for the first time. I believe this is a really important aspect of Jesus’ divine nature because only God has that kind of knowledge. If Jesus were merely a prophet, and … Continue reading

The Importance of Prayer

One of my favourite scriptures is Philippians 4:6-7, which reads, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”. The above scripture, written by Saint … Continue reading

Poetry by Marianne Farningham

I’m currently reading a book that my father bought me as a baptism gift. The book is divided into 40 short chapters, each by a different author but all related to Jesus. I’m reading one chapter each day, and it has been interesting to discover Christian writers who I previously knew little or nothing about. … Continue reading

The Lighthouse

Did you know that Elvis Presley used to sing a lot of Christian / Gospel songs? Today I would like to share with you one of my favourites. But this version doesn’t feature Elvis, but a band of Elvis’s contemporaries called J. D. Sumner and The Stamps Quartet. The lyrics are really moving and I’ve … Continue reading

He’s Just a Prayer Away

If you’ve never been to Westminster Cathedral in London, I would highly recommend a visit. It’s a beautiful building, filled with the presence of God. And it’s very peaceful, so a great place to pray. Last year I visited the cathedral with a friend, who went into the cathedral shop and bought me a small … Continue reading

My Baptism Today

This morning I awoke to clear blue sky – it was a truly beautiful sight. I knew that today was the day I would be sealing my discipleship of Jesus Christ, and having my sins symbolically washed clean via the sacrament of baptism. I was of course nervous, but engulfing that anxiety was a sense … Continue reading

Understanding the Devil

Today I was reading from the book of Matthew and I came across a passage that has influenced my understanding of what exactly the devil is. I have had problems understanding the devil as a being in competition with God, because I believe God has all power in existence (and therefore, how could a being … Continue reading
