This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically Continue reading RECALL NOTICE:

Never Stop Waiting

Selections From Luke 2
There was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon. This man was righteous and devout, looking forward to Israel’s consolation, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he saw the Lord’s Messiah…. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to perform for Him what was customary under the law, Simeon took Him up in his arms, praised God, and said: Continue reading Thought for the Week

Acts 8:26-40

This specific chapter deals with the event when Philip was instructed by God to go to the south down from Jerusalem to meet up with a man on a chariot.

Background:

The background to this event describes that Philip went down to Samaria to preach Christ unto them (verse 5).  And Philip was not an apostle (or pastor), he was one of the seven deacons ordained to look after the daily ministration of the needs of the widows, so that the apostles could spend their time in prayer and ministry of the word. (Acts 6:4).

How to Get Along with People.

1stRemember the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them to do unto you.

This simple code of behavior, when practiced, made our schools, and society, a far better place than they are today. The Golden Rule has been called the greatest principle of human relations and originated from the Bible with these words of Jesus: “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets” (Matthew 7:12).

According to Jesus, two great commands serve as the foundation of all the teaching of law and the prophets (Matt. 22:37-40). The first and greatest commandment is to “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, mind, and soul.” He stated that the second great command is to “love thy neighbor as thyself,” which is another reference to the Golden Rule. In other words, “love” is the act of doing unto others as we would want them to do unto us.

The Golden Rule continues to be Jesus’ expected standard of behavior by His followers.

GRACE

familystudiesI had the privilege to take part in a men’s breakfast yesterday at Jabez Ministries, West-Village, Krugersdorp.

What an exciting time! Thanks again to Pastor Frank and Pastor Hilton for the arrangements.

One thing that struck me was that the men of South Africa really need to stand up and take their rightful place in the home and in society. Our responsibilities as leaders of our households can not just be thrown in the wind. This does not mean that your wife should be ready to attend to your every demand. We should rather be willing to serve our families. Past Hilton also said that if we want to be leaders, we first need to be servants! This is in line with scripture where Jesus said that “If you want to be great in God’s kingdom, learn to be the servant of all.”
