God's Word is our lamp... - Do you sometimes think about the year ahead of you and wonder where, what, and how things are going to play out? What’s the next step? Where is this path leading me? We sometimes feel fearful about the unknown. But there is one thing that we can be confident about – our Lord is with us and He has set the path before us (Jeremiah 29:11-13). He is the Light showing us ‘where to’ next. However, we also need to get our priorities straight – we need to remember that our deepest longings will be satisfied by Jesus. The way to glorify Him in all we do is to first long and thirst for more of Him. This leads us back to the basic principle of studying, memorising and meditating on God’s Word as a key priority. “Your Word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path” (Psalm 119:105).

Our Heavenly Father's Blessing… - God’s promises, blessing and protection are with us always. This means that we can enter this year with joy-filled, peaceful hearts. We can rest in the presence of our Lord as we will always be at peace when we live with the realisation that God is with us and for us.
We are because HE IS… - Moses asked God who He is… and God replied: “I AM” (Exodus 3:13-14). This implies that God is who He says He is; He is our Father, our Creator. He is eternally constant and faithful. His promises stand forever. He is ever-present and unchanging. He is completely sufficient. He accomplishes what He wills. As we enter the new year, let us remember that our Lord is God over our lives!
Gelukkige nuwe jaar! - 2020 gaan die beste jaar nog wees! “Niks is vir God onmoontlik nie” (Lukas 1:37).
God – Our Shepherd… - God is good and faithful! He is our Shepherd, our provider and protector, our reason for joy, love, peace and hope! So, why would we fear the future? We have the assurance that His goodness and mercy, His unfailing love will follow us each and every day of the new year.
Dit is Kersfees! - Maak die tyd saam met jou familie en vriende spesiaal en gee vir hulle Jesus-liefde. “Eer aan God in die hoogste hemel, en vrede op aarde vir die mense in wie Hy 'n welbehae het!" (Lukas 2:14).
O Come let us Adore Him - Let us adore, praise and glorify our Lord and Saviour. Let us proclaim Jesus as Lord over our lives. Let’s submit everything to Him. Let’s proclaim the gospel to the world! Immanuel – God with us always! Glory, glory, hallelujah!
LOVE came down to us… - How amazing is it to think that we are part of the greatest love story ever written? Not only are we part of it, we are on the receiving end of an indescribable gift: God opened heaven to pour His Love out on us. God’s Love is what saves, redeems and restores us. God’s Love is what sets us free. God’s Love is what gives us hope, peace and joy forever. God’s Love is what draws us close to Him – the incarnation of His presence. And that’s what the gospel story is all about – God with us!
Good News – Great JOY for ALL! - Christmas reminds us of the most wondrous gift we could ever have received – the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. It reminds us of our Father God’s never-ending love. It’s the greatest news of light, joy, peace, hope and eternal life! It's the GOOD NEWS that will causes all people to REJOICE (Luke 2:10).
Kersgeskenke... - Dis Desember, vakansie, familietyd, feesviering en geskenketyd want dit is Kersfees! Maar Kersfees gaan oor veel meer as die geskenke wat ons kry onder die boom... Dit gaan eerder oor geskenke GEE, soos die wyse manne, as geskenke ONTVANG. Watse “geskenke” (wat hulde aan Jesus bring) gaan jy aan ander uitdeel gedurende hierdie feestyd?
