Jesus and the Samaritan Woman

I am deeply touched as I meditate on the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman in John chapter 4. Here is a woman who is a gentile and an immoral woman. She is a sinner like all of us. The Lord Jesus knows who she is and everything that she had done. He also knows that Jews do not associate with such people... To read the whole post please click on the title of this post above.

Testimony of how I found Peace, Joy and Victory in Christ

In the church where I grew up, I was taught that in order to obtain forgiveness from sin and victory over sin one must confess one’s sin to a counsellor at that church. In the attempt to obtain peace and victory in my life, I confessed my sins faithfully to my counsellors. I also tried very hard to live a life acceptable to God.

The Heartbreak of Rejected Love

There is most probably nothing that causes as much heartache and emotional pain as loving someone with all your heart, who totally ignores and refuses your love.

In the old testament we read about the prophet Hosea. God wanted him to feel some of the pain that God feels as a result of people rejecting His love. Therefore, God told him to love and marry a woman who would be unfaithful to him. Hosea did that. He married Gomer. She was unfaithful to him, even though he really loved her and showed her his love...

Hymns that touch my heart

These are some of the hymns that touch my heart. Some of them have been an encouragement to me during very difficult times.

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater - Annie Johnson Flint (1866-1932)

To added affliction He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace...

Peter versus Judas

Peter and Judas are two of the Lord Jesus' disciples who stand out at the time of the Lord Jesus' crucifixion (Mark 14). Both are included in the twelve disciples chosen by Jesus. Both sin against our Lord. Peter denies Jesus. Judas betrays Jesus. Peter obtains mercy and ends up dying for our Lord. Judas on the other hand does not obtain mercy and ends up committing suicide. What are the differences between these two disciples that their ends are so different?
