Why Does God Who IS Love Hate Sin?

  Let me be very clear – God NEVER hates people. He doesn’t. He wouldn’t. He can’t! So, why does God hate sin so much? I believe this is a really important question. God IS Love …. …. that’s what the Bible says in 1 John 4:8. We have to understand that God doesn’t just feel love, act out of love, or  believe in love. His very nature IS love. His love is so pure that there is no falsehood, wickedness...

Despair to Promise – Never Give Up!

  “He (God) heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds [healing their pain and comforting their sorrow].”                Psalm 147:3 (AMP) Have you ever been in a place where your own personal world seems hopeless and depression and despair are knocking, well thrashing at your door? Maybe even thoughts or plans of suicide? There is nothing to be ashamed of. Loads of people have been there. I have been there. BUT …. There...

  John 10:10b (AMP) says: “I (Jesus) came that they (you and me) may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].”   (Parentheses mine) The more time I spend listening to people, the more I realise that true enjoyment of life and abundance of hope and joy is lacking. If what Jesus says is true, then why are many people not experiencing this abundant life, and what is stopping them from obtaining it?...

God is a Father Too

  GOD IS A FATHER TOO Who do you think of when you hear the words “Father God”? How do you picture Him? If you’re anything like me, you might have or had visions of a gigantic man, sitting on a massive throne with a big stick in his mighty right hand and a permanent scowl on his face. This is how I used to picture God. Yet, this in not how the Bible portrays God. For almost all of...

Why Am I Here?

  Every person on the planet has plans, purposes, and meaning for their lives. EVERY PERSON …. …. including YOU! You have probably heard this so very often ….. but do you really believe it? Who you see yourself as and who you believe you belong to is at the core of everything you do, say and think. You probably hear Jeremiah 29:11 quoted repeatedly as an encouragement, which is great, but did you realise that there is an action...
