Rejection is something that we will all encounter on some level in our lives. This post looks at some of the long term effects rejection can have on us and what we can do about it.
Excerpt: “Rejection is the enemy of integrity which is our ability to live on the outside who we are on the inside. Rejection eats at our integrity and gives birth to compromise in our lives by making us put on a false self.”
In this post I share my testimony of how Jesus set me free from an addiction to pornography and how it has shaped my relationship with God since.
Excerpt: “There is a depth of shame and guilt that often comes from watching porn that is very deep and very dark. You might be able to relate. Although many engage with pornography to gain a sense of power, there’s a sense of powerlessness that lingers and flares when you actually try to free yourself.”
This post begins a series looking at the words of Jesus in Matthew 5:8 – “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.”
Excerpt: “Please remember that there is a difference between condemnation and conviction. Condemnation takes away hope while conviction restores vision and purpose.”
In our preaching and teaching so often we try to simplify things and make Christianity all about one singular topic and I think this might be why…
Excerpt: “Once you pick an aspect of the gospel and ignore the rest you start the journey into deception and once you pick an aspect of God and ignore the rest, you start the journey into idolatry.”
This is Part 1 looking at the need to prioritise living from the approval of God over everything else, as highlighted by Jesus in Matthew 6:1. “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.”
Excerpt: “Is God’s approval in secret enough for you or do you need the praises of people in public to feel valuable?”
