• God's Journeymen

    14 April, 2018

    Believers travel an unfamiliar path. They move as journeymen, competent but not masters in the ways of holiness. This path is trodden by gentle and steadfast people. As with Jeremiah these travellers may too be acquainted with despair. Loneliness may be their nearest friend; even counted as…...[read more]

  • Jesus Does Not Give Up On You

    8 April, 2018

    Even more diligently than the prince of the air roams the earth seeking targets (Job 1:7), is the diligence that Christians must guard their lives. Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. (Proverbs 4:23) The imperative is for all Christians to listen to the…...[read more]

  • Easter Re-thinks the 'Discipleship Box'

    3 April, 2018

    The resurrection of Jesus the Christ nails my mind to grasp yet again at discipleship's true nature. People makes mistakes about Jesus - all the time. A risen Jesus spooked His disciples, they thought He was a ghost. The disciples were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. (Luke…...[read more]

  • Of Dogs, Fleas & Friends

    21 March, 2018

    There is a well used Aussie aphorism: If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas. Bishop John Charles Ryle (1816-1900) expressed this with far more eloquence: Good friends are among our greatest blessings – they may restrain us from much evil, quicken us in our course, speak a word in…...[read more]

  • Tilted Thinking

    20 March, 2018

    My head leans toward what is common to man, and thus is uncommon to God. I mimic my teachers. The world and its churches are my loudest classrooms. They scream and shout down the divine order to my life. Their education has hindered and hurt me. In the self-help spiritual swamp there are no…...[read more]

  • It Seems Improper - Strange is Holiness!

    8 March, 2018

    In holiness there is separation. This removes me from the eyes and mind of others. This may seem improper but holiness becomes a hiding place, a place therefore of protection. It removes me from the way of harm. Holy = separation and thus safety. Solomon (in Proverbs 7) recounts the story of a…...[read more]

  • Mongolia Leads The Way

    6 March, 2018

    Just a few weeks ago I sat on a firm bed in a modest (by western standards) Mongolian guesthouse. Thoughtfully a small bottle of fresh water had been placed upon a colored but ageing chest of draws. The remainder of the room's contents are summed up by a few wall-mounted coat hooks, and a…...[read more]

  • Life as a Certifiable Nut

    11 February, 2018

    Kindly many have advised me that I may well be a certifiable nut. Should they be correct, who am I to disagree? A dedicated and certifiable motorcycle loving nut (such as I am) never gives up on their hobby, even if the garage is as bare of bikes as their wallet is empty of cash. I may have sold my…...[read more]
