The Cost of Mission

I was reading through Acts in my quiet times this last week when I was struck by the enormous cost, mission actually is for God’s people. It is not that our salvation costs us anything – we must affirm it is a gracious gift from a merciful saviour for all who come to him for forgiveness of their sin (Eph 2:8-10). But…

Despair, Serving and an Opportunity for Mission

The distinguished American psychiatrist, Karl Menninger, when speaking at a conference was once asked, “what would you advise a person to do if he felt a nervous breakdown coming on?” Many evidently expected he would say go and consult a psychiatrist but instead he replied “lock up your house and go across the railroad tracks to find someone in need!” Many might…

Fellow Gospel Workers

A Christian friend recently made me think. In conversation, he stated, “we support Joe Bloggs, who does this for us in the public arena”. We had been talking about how we as Christians should personally stand up against injustice in our society – not as a replacement for evangelism as so often happens, but because God is not satisfied with injustice in…

Godly Living

On holidays, I was reading a book titled, “Disciplines of a Godly man” by Kent Hughes. It is a book I have read before but it is well worth a second (or third) read. The book reminded me that godliness is something we as God’s people need to work hard at. There are very few things in life that we can do…

What Motivates Your Mission?

Hubert Simpson has preserved the story of a picture which was painted at the request of the Royal Corps of Signals to depict an incident which took place in the First World War. It shows us an unarmed linesman in no-man’s land, sent out there to repair a broken cable and to restore communication. But the picture shows him prostrate and lifeless…

Being at Peace With Ourselves and Others

Many people are concerned at the breakdown of community life. And rightly so since we all know the joys of a well integrated society and the sadness when there is disintegration. But it is not only society that disintegrates so easily, it can happen in us as individuals. Some people find it difficult to live with themselves. This can be caused by…

The Next Generation

Communities down through the ages have had to grapple with the issue of raising the next generation. It is a natural concern for us all. Love motivates us to want the best for our children, both as individuals and as the next generation. There is of course a healthy dose of self interest involved here. The way we raise our children will…

No Idols

When people stop believing in God they don’t believe in nothing, they believe in anything. G.K. Chesterton The second Commandment, the one where God forbids us to make idols, warns us of this very human, yet very sinful, tendency. The age old temptation is not so much to dispense with God (for that would be as foolish as denying that a watch…

What is the World Coming to?

It only takes a glance at the news on TV, a look at the pain and suffering around us, to prompt people to ask this question. It could be triggered by what we see happening in Iraq, where innocent people are murdered or aid workers beheaded in callous cold blood. Or maybe we hear of what people have done to others in…

Losing the Art of Serving

It seems that as a culture we are changing in the way our society interacts with each other, and supports others by serving them. Sadly, these trends should not surprise us, given the general move in our Western culture away from what can best be described as a Christian worldview to what might be best described as a “Self world view”. Put…
