Fasting: A Lesson About Humility

by Hlumelo Petros By now, whether you’ve been a Christian for years or just recently joined the faith, you should know a thing or two about fasting and maybe even the benefits of it. We often hear and read scriptures from both the old and new testaments about prophets and Jesus fasting ⁠— but what do we learn from fasting besides overcoming temptation? I’d like to share a series of six principles I learnt while fasting. Last year April, I decided to get serious about fasting. I decided I would totally surrender......

The Grass Is Greener Where There Is Fire

by Mpho Taole But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing James 1:4 KJV There are many times where we’ve heard people say “the grass is greener on the other side”. Many times the people that say this, are those that don’t desire to improve themselves or the situation that they find themselves in. About a week ago, I was driving on the highway and I happened to pass a place where the grass was burning. I couldn’t help but think: That grass is......

I'm Responsible For My Faith

by Shingai Ndinga I travelled out of town and left my car with a friend. He drove it minimally, and when I got back to town, drove the car, the radiator decided that it was time to semi-join the ancestors. My immediate default reaction was to shift the blame towards my friend: how could you let this happen? “…continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling” Philippians 2:12 But it dawned on me that I did not personally pay careful and detailed attention to the car. Each time I went to......

Raise The Temperature

by Pastor Israel Phiri An atmosphere is the prevailing tone or mood of a place. The atmosphere of a place determines the level of productivity and creativity of that place. A place with a cold atmosphere makes people rigid and uneasy to express their gifts and talents. A place with a warm atmosphere is the perfect environment for gifts, talents and ideas to flourish. The purpose of church is to create an atmosphere where people created in the image of God express their gifts and release their full potential. As churches, it......

You vs You

by Hlumi Petros Recently, I’ve been struggling with myself a lot. I’ve been a Christian for many years, but it feels like I’ve only just recently started understanding Christianity and the true nature of God. When Jesus died on the cross for us, it was not only for our sins and our past but for our future as well. The Jesus on the cross had died carrying all our sins, to rise from the dead three days later having taken back the keys of Life from Satan. He rose and was made......

Time To Dream Again

by Lebohang Mabula And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He looked up to heaven, blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fish He divided among them all. So they all ate and were filled. And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments and of the fish Mark 6:41-43 Do any the following phrases sound familiar: “I’ll start my business when I have more capital…I’ll get that degree, qualification, skill set when I have more......

Your Mat Is Your Problem

by Mpho Taole Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” John 5:8 The other day I was thinking of the story of the paralysed man in the book of John, and as I was pondering on it, God started talking to me about comfort zones. Most of us are living within our comfort zones and this is the very thing that is preventing us from walking in the destiny that we have been called to. I mean, think about this man: all he’s known all his......

More Than A Bastard: When Royal Blood Flows Through You

by Shingai Ndinga Have you ever had a moment where you lost your keys, and spend time looking for them — only to find out that there were in your pocket all along? Yes, I have had that happen to me countless times. It may be something crucial in that moment such as a pen, or some pocket change. Sometimes we find ourselves in a place where we doubt who we truly are or what we have — not what we think we are or have, and one of the things we......

The Reliable Always Win

by Pastor Israel Phiri One of the hallmarks of anyone or anything successful is reliability. I once had a friend who had a habit of buying second-hand cellphones. Unfortunately he wasn’t talented in vetting them for faults. Consistently he would buy a phone which would have problems. When you needed to contact him the phone was unavailable. That small little habit of not investing in a reliable phone made him very unreliable. One day, he came to me crying. His business was not growing and he was stressed out and ready to......

A Father's Plans

Hlumelo Petros My name is Hlumelo and I’m a Christian. Which means I believe in Jesus — right? I guess “yes” would be the appropriate answer as a Christian but truly speaking, “yes but to an extent” would probably be more honest. Let me explain: one early morning, as I was preparing for an important meeting before leaving the house, I suddenly felt overwhelmed by disparity. I felt as if even though I had spent the night before preparing and going over my notes, I was not ready for the meeting, I......
