I asked the Lord which book of the Bible I should read next. Every time I complete a book I go before the Lord to ask this question. I started the journey three years ago when I started reading the Gospel of Luke. Since then I have worked my way through the Gospels, drinking in … Continue reading The Book of Psalms
Reflections on the Epistle of James. The Gestation Period! I must be honest, James was one of the toughest book of the Bible I have studied thus far. When I started reading the Epistle of James I started out, as usual looking for Jesus. It shocks me to realise that it took me nine months … Continue reading James : A Tough Book!
I am not sure that I ask myself the question enough, but as I read John 1 today I realised that I must ask the question every day.
Roll the stone away! John 11 Before Jesus brings Lazarus back to life he is told that Lazarus has been dead for four days, that it will stink in his tomb. In that dark place lay a dead man, a man loved by Jesus. In that place lay a stinking corpse, the rot had set … Continue reading New Life

Jesus could have chosen any miracle, any sign, but he chose to transform water to wine. Jesus chose a wedding. Jesus chose water. Jesus chose transformation. Weddings are all about … Continue reading Jesus Transforms
John 1 : 43-51 When Jesus speaks to Nathanael, He speaks to us. Nathanael was under the fig tree, on his own. We know that He was earnestly seeking the Messiah and we know that whatever he was doing there, under that tree, in his quiet place, Jesus saw him. This is a wonderful message … Continue reading Jesus sees you!
I love the words of Jesus. When Jesus saw two people following him he asks them simply, What are you seeking? Of course, he knew and he knows because through Him everything was made. He knows our hearts, He knows our thoughts. From Him nothing is hidden. And yet He wants us to tell Him … Continue reading John 1 : What are you seeking?
