Last Words: Father, Into Your Hands…

Date 29th March 2015  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Psalm 31:1-5; Luke 23:44-49

What’s your only comfort in life and death? That I am not my own but belong, body and soul, in life and death, to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ. These words from the Heidelberg Catechism are a beautiful expression of trust in the sufficiency of Jesus to look after us both now and forever. While

Last Words: Forsaken

Date 29th March 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Psalm 22; Mark 15:33-39

‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ In his book, The Hard Sayings of Jesus’ F.F. Bruce calls this phrase ‘the hardest of all the hard statements’. The problem is not with the words, they are simple. But what do they mean? What do we understand of the experience of Jesus and the

James: Talk Isn’t Cheap

Date 25th March 2015  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage James 3:1-18

“Sticks and stones can break my bones but words cannot hurt me.” As children some of us knew these words as the best defense against bullying taunts from the mean kids. The truth, however, is that they simply are not true. Words have immense power. They can hurt. This Sunday, as we pick up a

Last Words: I Am Thirsty

Date 22nd March 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage John 19: 16b-30

I am thirsty!It’s such a simple and short statement. We say it often. It’s a common condition of the human body. As we read the suffering of Jesus we become acutely aware that this suffering was very real and very physical. What he suffered is in many ways unimaginable, especially since it was so undeserved.

Last Words: Today You Will Be With Me

Date 15th March 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Luke 23:26-43

As Jesus hung on the cross we are listening in on a conversation between three dying men. It is amazing to see how one those hung beside Jesus changes. He has watched the way Jesus conducted himself on the cross and was convicted of his own sin and guilt. He understands who Jesus is and

Friendship

Date 08th March 2015  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Proverbs 12:26, Proverbs 27:6, Psalm 119:63, 1 Corinthians 15:33, John 15:12-13

Wikipedia defines friendship as follows: “friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between two or more people” or “friendship is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association.” While both these definitions can be said to be true, we may wonder if there is more to friendship than simply ‘mutual affection’ or an ‘interpersonal

Towards Wholeness: What Shall I Wear?

Date 08th March 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Colossians 3:12-17

“What shall I wear?” is a question many people ask nearly every morning. What are my plans for the day and how should I dress for those things, whether that is work or rest, meetings or sport. The usual wrestle is weighing up fashion versus form, or style versus substance. But when Christians ask this

Towards Wholeness: Cleaning

Date 01st March 2015  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Gen 1:15; 1 Cor 6:18-20

Most of us have heard the saying “cleanliness is next to godliness“. It may remind many of us of our disgruntled parents who said it over our untidy bedrooms as children or having heard it as the justification for the Saturday morning cleaning spree in the Christian household. Is it true though? Is being clean

Towards Wholeness: Exercise

Date 01st March 2015  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 1 Cor 6:19-20; 1 Cor 9:24-27

What do experts tell us makes for a healthy lifestyle today? Rest, good nutrition and exercise to name a few. The Bible also talks about the importance of all these things, making a connection between our faith and our physical and mental health. We believe that God wants us to be healthy and that part
