Reflections On the Church

Many people nowadays think that if they make it to church on a Sunday morning, they are doing their bit for the Lord. Such people don’t comprehend that being a Christian is about having an on-going relationship with God – a relationship that we don’t deserve, and one that we can only have on the…

Does God Heal Today?

“Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” (John 20:29) “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my…

Not Better, But Better Off

In the Bible, we are told that hell is a place where people are separated from God by the wrong things they’ve done, having not chosen to be forgiven by putting their faith in Jesus Christ. We are also told that it’s a place where people constantly say their prayers, but their prayers are not…

Hope On the Verge of Death (Sequel)

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) My Dad was born on 29th November 1905 and my Mum on December 2nd 1906. They married in July 1929. Many years ago, when he was a young…

A Need Met By the Lord

This has been a week in which I have been enormously blessed by the Lord. The Lord has met an urgent need for me in a truly amazing way – especially as I didn’t originally consider that there was going to be a need! Perhaps, as with so many things in the past, I had…

Our God Is Able!

Shortly after she got married about six years ago, my cousin’s daughter, Jenny, was diagnosed as having an extremely rare condition known as Wegener’s Granular Mastosis (I know the first of those three words is correct, but I’m not sure about the spelling of the other two!). This disease is so rare that it was…

Hope On the Verge of Death

My own childhood was a very happy one. My brother was born in May 1931. I came along in July 1937. My brother and I were brought up by two very loving and very caring parents, who seldom (if ever) had any disagreements with each other. My father was a very devoted, caring and loving…

Reflections on Billy Graham

The only time I saw Billy Graham, was when he came to Wembley Stadium in London about nine years ago. We went with about 30 other people on a coach trip, which was organized by the local Congregational Church which I attended at that time. My wife and my mother came along too. He delivered…

My Salvation Story

Before becoming a Christian, I used to think that ‘heaven’ was some place in another dimension somewhere, that you automatically got zapped into when you die! I wasn’t an atheist, but on the other hand I wasn’t a Christian either. At the time, I was very much into Science Fiction and got hooked on the…

Gaining a Better Understanding of the Word ‘Christian’

I have experienced various reactions from people after admitting to being a Christian. Someone once asked me: “Is that something to do with Cliff Richard?” and someone else evidently thought that ‘born again Christian’ was a separate religion in its own right! As a contractor, I have been interviewed for jobs on many occasions –…
