Cleansing and renewal

The world is in the “bondage of corruption” and this is the environment in which we live.

However God promises salvation. He saves us through a process that takes time – a lifetime. As Christians, genuinely seeking to follow Christ, do we know fully what is this process and how we can participate in and embrace it?

No greater love

Jesus chose to “taste death for every person.” He experienced suffering of unimaginable magnitude, and He died – not because He sinned, but because we sinned. In this there is no greater love. In this God’s great love for you and for me is manifest.

Before the throne of grace

We don’t like to “feel bad” about ourselves. We have devised many ways within our lifestyles to ‘paper over’ sin. We have lived in such a way for so long that pain is the result. It is in humankind, however to want to always be good, no matter how many bad things we do.

Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be as wool.”

This is one of the most striking elements of the gospel message and makes the Kingdom of God possible. To have your sins forgiven freely, by the Great God who has individually approached us, is the greatest hallmark of His being.

    D-Day +75 Years: What Should We Learn?

    Few days have marked a turning point in human history. But one of those was “D-Day”—June 6, 1944, when Allied troops broke through Adolf Hitler’s Atlantic coastal defenses to invade and liberate France, then the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany itself. The trajectory of Europe’s history was radically changed. Now, looking back 75 years later, what have we learned? Where is Europe heading today, and what does it mean for the rest of the world? In this issue we explore these topics and many more, including the transforming power of God’s Holy Spirit in the lives of believers. Download this issue in PDF or read online.
