A small group of us in Matric conducted a social experiment. We chose a perfectly healthy Grade 8 boy and would, over a good few days, ask him: “Are you feeling ok? You look sick.” He was absent the next week

“Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking,” [MSG] “but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” [NIV] (Romans 12:2).

The Devil wants to neutralise and weaken your character by getting into and infecting your head. Think about what you think about.

Jesus designed you to be “more than a conqueror” (Romans 8:37). Who will you believe?




According to Greek mythology, the Fates were 3 goddesses who weaved the destinies of mankind. A buddy asked “Am I a pawn doomed to God’s predetermined path for me?”

God’s not some finger-shaking Jedi master who controls His weak-minded Christian sheep. While He absolutely knows what’s best for us, He has given us the freedom of choice to obey or disobey Him. He’s given us His Holy Spirit to guide us in making good choices so that “[His] kingdom come, [His] will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Matthew 6:10.

The Spirit is with you – always




I’m convinced that my son will become a greater man than me. I’m like a David of old who conquers kingdoms. He’s like Solomon who unites kingdoms through the wisdom of God. God has designed/wired/put-him-together like that.

When Jesus said that “I have come that they [you] may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10), it means that you’re designed to live a life of eternal importance – not to simply exist – not just making it through the day.

The devil comes to rob you of your purpose and passion. Jesus calls you to that special place where His purpose and your passion meet.




Unreciprocated love is nasty cruel. You pour your heart out to another but they don’t hold or treasure it. They just let it splish out in the dirt – and you’re left with an empty heart.

I get tw-tw-twitchy when we call it “worship” but mean singing. Romans 12:1 ” offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship.” The author (of everything that’s been created) gave His whole self to you, poured out His whole heart for you. Such is the hugeness and intimacy of Jesus. You get to love him back with your whole life. That’s worship.
