Sun 23 Jun

Little did Malachi and the people he was ministering to realise that these six verses would be the last for some four centuries These words would form a final word before the living Word, Jesus Christ came.What then did God consider important for His people to know? A constant cry was the activity of the...

There is the expectation that if you make a promise then you will keep what you have said you would do. What is at stake is your word and your character! So if you say you will do something, may be even take the garbage bins out, then the family expects the bins out. Or if you say you will take your child...

Sun 9 Jun

If there is one thing that people hate or intensely get upset over in our day and age is the apparent lack of justice that has crept in.

Sun 5 May

If, after the service the person sitting beside you asks, “How do I know God loves me?” What would be your response? It is a question God’s people were asking of the prophet Malachi. Now the prophet explains that God has loved you. Yet the people still ask, “How have you loved us?”What would prompt God’s...

Sun 21 Apr
