BOUNDARIES Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place where He prayed. Simon and his companions went to look for Him, and when they found Him, they exclaimed, ‘Everyone is looking for you!’ Jesus replied, ‘Let us go somewhere else – to the nearby villages- …Continue reading →

Hope In Their Hopelessness

HOPE IN THEIR HOPELESSNESS! That evening after sunset, the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed. The whole town gathered at the door, and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but He would not let the demons speak because they knew who He was (Mark 1: 32-34). What a window of …Continue reading →

Without A Word

WITHOUT A WORD As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew. Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they immediately told Jesus about her. So He went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on …Continue reading →

Jesus Let Loose

JESUS LET LOOSE They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. The people were amazed at His teaching because He taught as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law (Mark 1:21-22). Jesus was ready. He had bent all His energies towards this moment when He could …Continue reading →

Jesus, The Rabbi

JESUS, THE RABBI As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. ‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will sent you out to fish for people.’ At once they left their nets and followed Him. When He had gone a little farther, He …Continue reading →

It’s Still Good News!

IT’S STILL GOOD NEWS! After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. ‘The time has come,’ He said. ‘The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!’ (Mark 1:14-15). Mark was specific about the timing of the beginning of Jesus’ ministry. There was no clash or competition between …Continue reading →


TESTED! At once the Spirit sent Him out into the wilderness, and He was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended Him. (Mark 1:12-13). Mark’s version of this phase of Jesus’ training to be a son is quite sketchy. He gives no details about this event and yet, according …Continue reading →

The Father’s Blessing

THE FATHER’S BLESSING After that time, Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptised by John in the Jordan. Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, He saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on Him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: ‘You are my Son, whom I love, with you …Continue reading →

God Breaks The Silence

GOD BREAKS THE SILENCE And this was his message: ‘After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptise you with water, but He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.” (Mark 1: 7-8). Was this the message that captivated the crowds so that they …Continue reading →

Wild Prophet!

WILD PROPHET! And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptised by him in the Jordan River. John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his …Continue reading →

Herald Of His Coming

HERALD OF HIS COMING The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way” – “a voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him.'” And …Continue reading →

The Long Look

THE LONG LOOK I heard and my heart pounded, my lips quivered at the sound; decay crept into my bones, and my legs trembled. Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity to come on the nation invading us (Hab. 3:16). What a difference in the prophet’s attitude now! Gone were the accusations that God was seemingly indifferent; …Continue reading →

Do Not Mess With God

DO NOT MESS WITH GOD Sun and moon stood still in the heavens at the glint of your flying arrows, at the lightning of your flashing spear. In wrath you strode through the earth and in anger you threshed the nations. You came out to deliver your people, to save your anointed one. You crushed the leader of the land …Continue reading →

The Glory of God

As we peruse the Word of God, we see that time and again, God’s glory is revealed to mankind through His wonder working power. The children were enslaved by the Egyptians, and they began crying out to God for deliverance. God raised up a man called Moses to be instrumental to liberate the children of Israel from slavery. To be …Continue reading →

Show me your glory

Dear Family There is much written on the subject of the “glory of God” for us to study and learn from. Most of it leaves us feeling better about who God is and what He is able to do for us. All the “weight” or “heaviness” of His goodness is wonderful to dwell upon. We natu-rally love to know that …Continue reading →
