I'll Push You (Thurs): accepting your miracle
Sometimes we are so busy looking for physical miracles, that we miss miracles right in front of us. It took the faith of his friend Justin to show Patrick what a real miracle could look like. What miracles might you be missing out on, because you're looking for the wrong one?? Wisdom from I'll Push You today.
03:18
August 6, 2020
I'll Push You (Wed): Sabbath every day
On his I'll Push You journey Patrick discovers a wonderful truth about Sabbath: that it doesn't only have to happen once a week, but can be a daily practice in the way we respond to others. Will you be fully present to the people you come across today?
02:45
August 5, 2020
I'll Push You (Tues): joy in serving
Perhaps the most touching part of I'll Push You is the joy Patrick finds in serving Justin... and the joy Justin find in letting Patrick serve. What joy might you missing out on, living for yourself? True joy is found in serving.
02:22
August 4, 2020
I'll Push You (Mon): ignore the critics
More inspiration from I'll Push You this week (do yourself a favour and buy the book!) Justin and Patrick faced much criticism and discouragement on their journey. But they didn't let those negative voices dissuade them. How about you?
02:26
August 3, 2020
I'll Push You (Fri): the long road is the better one
Justin and Patrick finally begin their Camino, and immediately face all kinds of challenges. But at the end of the first day, they're on top of a mountain! The easy road is never the rewarding one - take the long and hard road and find more joy on the top of the mountain!
02:33
July 31, 2020
I'll Push You (Thurs): friendships are priceless
I'll Push You is a story of deep friendship. Do you have a friend you trust with your life? Are you a friend that someone trusts with their life? Be inspired today by the wonderful friendship between Justin and Patrick.
02:55
July 30, 2020
I'll Push You (Wed): valuing compassion and relationships
As the I'll Push You guys began to prep for their journey, people came forward and gave money, time and more to help them out. This is the Jesus way - giving of ourselves to help others. Are we valuing people above our money and stability?
02:03
July 29, 2020
I'll Push You (Tues): if your WHY is strong enough
Inspiration from a great book called I'll Push You - which you MUST buy. Today we learn that if your WHY is strong enough, then the HOW will follow. What dreams are you not pursuing because the HOW scares you?
02:00
July 28, 2020
I'll Push You (Mon): dwell on what you CAN do
This week we are getting inspiration from I'll Push You (go buy the book!!). Today we learn from Justin Skeesuck in his wheelchair, who decided to rather dwell on the things he could do rather than become bitter about what he couldn't.
02:27
July 27, 2020
A song of praise (Fri): even in the storm... God is wise
If there was ever a moment where the devil thought he's outsmarted God, and humanity thought there was no more hope, it was when Jesus hung on a cross. But God had a plan! He can never be stumped or surprised, since his wisdom is unlimited. We can praise Him today for this reason, even in this storm!
02:38
July 24, 2020
A song of praise (Thurs): even in the storm... God is our strength
The Psalmist reminds us that God sustains his people - like a sustain pedal on a piano, which keeps a note going even when it should have already stopped. We can praise God even in our storms for being our sustaining strength! Listen here:
01:58
July 23, 2020
A song of praise (Wed): even in the storm, God cares
The Psalmist tells us that God is a compassionate, caring God, healing the brokenhearted and binding up wounds. Why could Paul and Silas praise God in a prison cell? Because they knew he was caring for them even in their difficult time.  Praise Him today, and know that nobody cares for you like He does!
02:21
July 22, 2020
A song of praise (Tues): even in the storm, God is our delight
We only praise what we delight in. Could it be that praising God would give us greater joy in this difficult time?
02:14
July 21, 2020
A song of praise (Mon): praising in the storm
The early Methodists sang praise in the midst of their storms... Paul and Silas sang  praise in their jail cell... Let's be people who praise our way through the COVID-19 crisis.
02:45
July 20, 2020
A song of lament (Fri): lamenting lost souls
Paul's lament in Romans 9 shows his deep concern for those who do not know Jesus. He would have willingly traded his place in God's kingdom if it meant his Jewish friends could come to Jesus.  Let's remember to do all we can to share Christ with those who don't know him!
02:24
July 17, 2020
A song of lament (Thurs): lamenting sin
Many of the laments in the Bible were written when the writer became aware of their sinfulness. Do we still feel the same grief at our sin today? Let's learn a lesson from Hansie Cronje - who began to heal when he lamented his sin.
02:58
July 16, 2020
A song of lament (Wed): lamenting others' suffering
Christians don't simply lament their own suffering, they lament when anyone suffers... and then they do all they can to help alleviate the suffering they see.
02:04
July 15, 2020
A song of lament (Tues): lamenting our suffering
The writer of Lamentations 5 cries out in horror at the things going on in his world. Today, 2500-odd years later, the world looks quite similar. Perhaps today we can lament along with him, as we see the state of things.
02:32
July 14, 2020
A song of lament (Mon): it's OK to lament
The Bible contains many songs of lament. In Western culture today, we often try to bury our feelings, but the Bible writers certainly let their feelings out! Today, know that it's OK to lament the state of things - but direct your lament to God.
02:16
July 13, 2020
Psalm 1 (Fri): He watches over us
Those who delight in God have great assurance: that he delights in them, and watches over them with care and compassion. Do you need this reminder today?
02:17
July 10, 2020
Psalm 1 (Thurs): the way of the wicked
The Psalmist paints a sad picture of those who don't learn to delight in God. Their ways lead to destruction, but the way of Jesus leads to life in all fullness. Which will you choose?
02:24
July 9, 2020
Psalm 1 (Wed): Prospering
The Psalmist says that when we delight in God, we become like strong trees beside streams of water. What does this mean? Some thoughts.
03:09
July 8, 2020
Psalm 1 (Tues): delighting in the Word
We need to see the Bible as not just a textbook of answers, but as a delightful way of getting to know God! What are you delighting in today?
03:09
July 7, 2020
Psalm 1 (Mon): friends but not partners
The Psalmist tells us to watch who we associate with... but then Jesus was known as a "friend of sinners". Let's be friends of all, but avoid partnering with those who leads us in the wrong ways.
01:56
July 6, 2020
Bill Wilson 2 (Fri): a Christ-like life
Even while he was alive, people who knew Bill Wilson spoke of him with the same respect and kindness you usually only hear at funerals. Such was his character of Christ-like love and deep faith. Be inspired by him today.
02:41
July 3, 2020
Bill Wilson 2 (Thurs): All is well
Bill Wilson died on an adventure gone wrong. When he realised he would never make it home, he wrote some moving letters to those he loved, ensuring them that "all is well". His faith in Christ gave him great peace, even in the face of death.
02:14
July 2, 2020
Bill Wilson 2 (Wed): the power of a smile
When times were tough on the adventures that Bill Wilson went on, his faith enabled him to still find joy.  Much like Paul, who said "rejoice always!" Are we able to show the joy of Christ to others, even when things aren't going our way?
02:21
July 1, 2020
Bill Wilson 2 (Tues): Joy in small things
Today Bill Wilson reminds us that joy is not only found in bigger and more extravagant things, but in small blessings.
02:29
June 30, 2020
Bill Wilson 2 (Mon): using your time wisely
Bill Wilson was said to live 3 days to everybody else's 1! Are we using our time wisely like he did?
02:35
June 29, 2020
Bill Wilson (Fri): using what you have for God
Bill Wilson was a great artist, and saw his talent as his way of sharing God's love. What gifts and talents do you have? Are you using them to point others to God?
02:28
June 26, 2020
Bill Wilson (Thur): God in nature
Bill Wilson was a nature lover - preferring to meet God under the sky than in a church! Let's remember that God is God wherever it is we are.
02:07
June 25, 2020
Bill Wilson (Wed): Faith must be practical
Some words from Bill Wilson remind us that our beliefs and doctrines mean little if they are not lived out practically. Are we Christ-followers on paper only?
02:17
June 24, 2020
Bill Wilson (Tues): a hard school
When Bill Wilson went through difficult times, he could see them as opportunities for learning.  Is this tough season in our lives teaching us and growing us?
02:08
June 23, 2020
Bill Wilson (Mon): actions louder than words
Inspiration from explorer, doctor and Christ-follower Bill Wilson. The people around him could tell of his devotion Christ without him even speaking of it.  Is the same true of you and I?
01:57
June 22, 2020
Here I Am To Worship (Fri): how much it cost...
Reflections on Tim Hughes' worship song. When you look at the cross, you are looking at the price tag of our salvation. It cost God the life of His precious Son. This salvation is a free gift for all - but Dietrich Bonhoeffer reminds us that while free, it is still costly.
03:21
June 19, 2020
Here I Am To Worship (Thurs): You're altogether lovely...
Reflections on Tim Hughes' song. What do we do in response to a God who is thoroughly, completely, altogether lovely and worthy? We bow down in worship.
02:52
June 18, 2020
Here I Am To Worship (Wed): all for love's sake
Reflections on Tim Hughes' classic song. Hughes wrote this song in response to reading Philippians 2, which says that Jesus humbled himself, giving up his divine glory in heaven to die on a cross. Why did he do it? He did it all for love's sake... Can we say that we too do what we do "all for love's sake"?
02:43
June 17, 2020
Here I Am To Worship (Tues): King of all days...
Reflections on Tim Hughes' famous song. God is our servant King! He was King from the very first day of creation... He will be King every day until the end... but most importantly, is He your King today?
02:08
June 16, 2020
Here I Am To Worship (Mon): light of the world...
Reflections on Tim Hughes' famous song. The first verse reminds us that no matter what darkness we face in the world, Jesus is our light, opening our eyes to his beauty and presence.
02:59
June 15, 2020
Holy Spirit as Counsellor (Fri): He challenges
When the Spirit speaks, it is rarely without a challenge. Be careful what you wish for! If you wish to hear the Spirit's counsel, don't be surprised if the message that comes is a challenging one.
02:22
June 12, 2020
Holy Spirit as Counsellor (Thurs): He speaks through people
Even though we have the manual, sometimes we just don't understand what it says. Sometimes we need others to help us discern the Spirit's counsel. Do you have people in your life who help you do this? Really, this is what the church family is all about.
02:17
June 11, 2020
Holy Spirit as Counsellor (Wed): He speaks through His Word
If you want to hear the Spirit's counsel, the best place to look is in the Bible. God has given us the manual - let's use it!
02:29
June 10, 2020
Holy Spirit as Counsellor (Tues): He speaks in strange ways
God sometimes talks in strange ways - as he did to me just last week. Today, a lesson from Bruce Almighty and a reminder to keep our eyes and ears open!
02:50
June 9, 2020
Holy Spirit as Counsellor (Mon): He listens
How is the Holy Spirit a counsellor? He is a patient listener.
02:23
June 8, 2020
Holy Spirit prayers (Fri): pray for me
On days when you just don't know what to pray anymore, how about trying "Holy Spirit pray for me"? Because as Romans 8:26 says, when we have no words, the Spirit intercedes for us.
01:39
June 5, 2020
Holy Spirit prayers (Thus): Convict me
David prayed that God would search his heart and reveal any offensive things within him. Would you have the courage to pray the same thing? Ask the Holy Spirit to convict you today, that you might turn from the sins you don't know are hurting you.
02:36
June 4, 2020
Holy Spirit prayers (Wed): Comfort me
The Spirit of God is our great comforter, helping us cope with difficult times. Whatever it is you might be going through, stop and pray "Holy Spirit, comfort me" throughout the day, and as you do, may you be reminded that God is as close to you as the air you are breathing.
01:45
June 3, 2020
Holy Spirit prayers (Tues): lead me
It is said that as a ship is moved through the water by wind in its sails, so the biblical writers were inspired by the Spirit’s leading. Can we say the same of God's work in our lives? Today, pray "Holy Spirit lead me" follow where the Spirit sends you.
01:45
June 2, 2020
Holy Spirit Prayers (Mon): Fill me
As many South Africans return to the workplace after lockdown, we need the filling of the Holy Spirit more than even! Will you pray "fill me" throughout the day, and rely on the Spirit for your strength and joy?
02:25
June 1, 2020
Wesley's Life (Fri): the world
One of John Wesley's most famous statements is "I look upon all the world as my parish!" Today Rev. Tim Attwell challenges us not to live in a religious bubble, but to follow in Wesley's footsteps in sharing God in all situations and cirumstances.
03:21
May 29, 2020
Wesley's Life (Thurs): Georgia - a failure
While Wesley may seem like a spiritual superhero, let's remember that he also dealt with failure. A disastrous mission trip to Georgia made him question even his own salvation.  Today Roxanne Steyn from Bedfordview Methodist Church reminds us even when we fail, God is at work in us.
03:57
May 28, 2020
Wesley's Life (Wed): Oxford - a group of disciples
Wesley's time at Oxford certainly shaped him in many ways, as Rev. Ralph Afghan from Coronation Avenue Methodist shows us today. It was there that the Wesley brothers formed the "Holy Club", which - while mocked by some - formed them and many others for deep discipleship. Let us remember the importance of accountability in small groups, and let us not fear the mocking words of those who don't understand the ways of Jesus!
03:52
May 27, 2020
Wesley's Life (Tues): Epworth - a fire
As a young boy living with his family in Epworth, John Wesley nearly lost his life in a fire. Rev. Lea Marumo from North Rand Methodist Church joins us today to remind us that even in the fires of life, our mighty God is with us.
03:34
May 26, 2020
Wesley's Life (Mon): Aldersgate - a warmed heart
The pivotal moment in John Wesley's life came one evening at a church meeting in Aldersgate - and as the Spirit filled him, nothing would ever be the same. Rev. Pete Veysie from George Methodist Church reminds us that we too can have an "warmed heart" moment like Wesley did.
03:28
May 25, 2020
Wesley's Ways (Fri): preferential option for the poor

04:09
May 22, 2020

03:46
May 20, 2020
Wesley's Ways (Tues): scriptural holiness
John Wesley was passionate about "spreading scriptural holiness throughout the land". Today Rev. Raymond Keet from Krugersdorp Methodist Church shares on what this means: avoiding harm, doing good, and attending the ordinances of God.
03:56
May 19, 2020
Wesley's Ways (Mon): disciplined spirituality
John Wesley was convinced that a vital spirituality was always a disciplined one! Today Rev. Trevor Hudson reminds us that the words "disciple" and "discipline" go together, and that by adopting certain spiritual disciplines we place ourselves before God, allowing his transforming love to flow into our lives.
03:11
May 18, 2020
Susanna Wesley: a woman ahead of her time

04:03
May 15, 2020
Susanna Wesley: a woman of compassionate care
Rev. Terry Booysen from Penryn College in Nelspruit joins us today, to show how Susanna Wesley's life reminds us of the power of the Christian home, and the call on each of our lives to teach and model a life of faith to the next generation.
03:47
May 14, 2020

02:42
May 13, 2020
Susanna Wesley: a woman of devotion
Rev. Louise Wernich from Northfield Methodist Church joins us today to share how Susanna Wesley embodied Jesus' words to "seek first the kingdom of God". She was a person of great devotion - let's learn from her and follow her example today.
03:02
May 12, 2020
Susanna Wesley: the blessing of a Mother
John Wesley and his mother had a special relationship - and it seems she had a stronger influence on his spiritual life than his minister father did. Be grateful for your mother today!
02:12
May 11, 2020
The Inclusive Wesley (Fri): all can be saved to the UTTERMOST
Rev. Angus Kelly is with us today to explain Wesley's "Christian perfection" - not a state of sinlessness, but a state of perfect love for God and for others. Let us press on to achieve this perfection each day.
03:23
May 8, 2020
The Inclusive Wesley (Thurs): all can KNOW they are saved
Rev. Ron Robertson joins today to teach us Wesley's wonderful view on assurance. In a pivotal moment in his own life, Wesley came to know that even HE was loved and saved by God, and this changed everything for him. May you and I find the same assurance in the saving love of God today.
03:02
May 7, 2020
The Inclusive Wesley (Wed): all CAN to be saved
Rev. Wesley Olivier from Pretoria North Methodist Church joins me today, to teach us that all CAN be saved. Wesley was a firm believer that God's grace is available to all people, but not all choose to respond to it. Will you respond to His loving call today? Whoever you are and whatever you've done, He is willing to welcome you with love.
03:09
May 6, 2020
The Inclusive Wesley (Tues): all NEED to be saved
Rev. Ralph Yelverton joins to teach us the first "all" in Methodism - that all people need salvation. Wesley himself discovered that his devout and disciplined Christian life could never "earn" God's love. He needed to be saved - as do each you and I!
02:54
May 5, 2020
The Inclusive Wesley (Mon): agreeing to disagree
John Wesley was ahead of his time in his inclusiveness - striving to help and strengthen those of different denominations and traditions. What about us? Can we "agree to disagree" with those with different emphases to us?
02:41
May 4, 2020
Resurrected Faith (Fri): faith requires response
At some point, we all have to hear Jesus say "stop doubting and believe!" May today be that day for you!
02:54
May 1, 2020
Resurrected Faith (Thurs): Faith takes community
Our faith can't be resurrected in isolation. It takes people. Are our churches safe places for doubting Thomases? Let's learn to be gentle with those who struggle - and let's stay in community when we doubt.
02:41
April 30, 2020
Resurrected Faith (Wed): Faith takes time
Faith doesn't take a click of the fingers, sometimes it takes a long time to be resurrected. Thomas himself waited a week for Jesus to reveal himself again. How long have you been waiting? Don't give up - He is coming.
03:00
April 29, 2020
Resurrected Faith (Tues): Mustard Seed faith
Rev. Zack Eswine gives a usual analogy about faith - like venturing out onto a frozen pond, one step at a time. If your faith isn't the size of Everest, that's OK: because as Jesus said, even faith the size of a mustard seed will sustain you.
02:50
April 28, 2020
Resurrected Faith (Mon): doubters are in good company
We often talk about having bold faith, but if Peter and Thomas - two of Jesus' disciples - could have moments of doubt, then surely we can too.
02:10
April 27, 2020
Lessons from Mark 1 (Fri): the dove
Rev. Ray Goddess joins us once more to teach that the dove which appears at Jesus' baptism might have more meaning than we realize...
03:01
April 24, 2020
Lessons from Mark 1 (Thur): Jesus' Baptism
Rev. Ray Goddess shares on Jesus' baptism - which was not necessary for repentance, but which declared Jesus as God's Son. 
03:41
April 23, 2020
Lessons from Mark 1 (Wed): God's Timing
Rev. Ray Goddess is back to teach us to rely on God's timing. Jesus only began his ministry at the right moment - but we tend to get frustrated and impatient with God's timing. Let's trust in Him fully, and remember that His timing is always perfect.
02:14
April 22, 2020
Lessons from Mark 1 (Tues): called by God
Rev. Ray Goddess teaches that each one of us has a calling from God. Are we being obedient is answering the call?
02:04
April 21, 2020

Rev. Ray Goddess teaches us lessons from Mark 1. Who is Jesus? He is human, able to understand us fully, and He is also fully God. Only He can set us free.
02:42
April 20, 2020
Graces of the Risen Christ (Fri): forgiveness
The risen Christ offered forgiveness to those who had hurt him so. As we reflect on Easter let's remember that our unfaithfulness never has the last word - but His forgiveness is always greater.
01:55
April 17, 2020
Graces of the Risen Christ (Thurs): the second life
Baptism is a picture of the Easter story: burying our old lives in the tomb, and rising with Christ into new life. Have you been baptized? Maybe it's time! Or if you have, let Easter remind you of the resurrected life you have.
02:12
April 16, 2020
Graces of the Risen Christ (Wed): his wounds
If Jesus' resurrected body was so glorious, why did he still have the wounds on his hands, feet and side? Bernard Wuellner's book gives us some answers. Let's praise Him today, because by his wounds we are healed.
02:35
April 15, 2020
Graces of the Risen Christ (Tues): the risen body
Reflections from Bernard Wuellner's book. Christ appearing on earth in his new body may be the greatest act of love He ever performed!
02:14
April 14, 2020
The Graces of the Risen Christ (Mon): heavenly desires
Reflections from Bernard Wuellner's book. As the spirit of Easter lingers this week, let's seek Jesus just as the disciples did at the tomb.
02:32
April 13, 2020
Easter Sunday 2020: The King still has one more move
Rev. Derek Wilson shares on how when Jesus was in the tomb... the King still had one more move. It seemed like defeat, but in fact it was victory! Let's celebrate our risen Saviour today.
02:55
April 12, 2020
Easter Saturday 2020: He did it for you and me
Rev. Derek Wilson is with us again to share on how Jesus knows what it's like to be in crisis - and died for you and me.
02:35
April 11, 2020
Good Friday 2020: It is finished
Rev. Derek Wilson reminds us that when Jesus cried "it is finished", it was not a cry of defeat, but a cry of victory.
02:44
April 10, 2020
Even when I don't see it... You're working
God has a way of working for the good of his people, even if they don't see or feel him at work. Can we believe that He is at work even now, in our COVID-19 crisis?
02:18
April 9, 2020
Light in the darkness
God is our light which the darkness can never overcome. And the people of God are to carry His light into to the dark world, even today in our time of crisis!
02:28
April 8, 2020
Promise Keeper
If there's one thing that God can be trusted to do, it's to keep His promises! What promises do you need to hold on to today?
02:21
April 7, 2020
Miracle Worker
God is a miracle worker, and we praise Him for the great things He has done! But Jesus was tough on those who didn't repent after seeing his miracles. Are we thirsty for miracles but unprepared to commit to the ways of God?
02:24
April 6, 2020
Way Maker
Throughout Scripture we see God making a way for his people - even when there seems to be no way. In today's COVID-19 crisis, could it be that God is still making a way?
02:28
April 5, 2020
L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N. - Nurture
I hope we all have used this time of lockdown to nurture our relationships - with God, and with those close to us.
01:59
April 4, 2020
L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N. - Wait
In lockdown, it feels like we are all waiting in limbo. Let's remember today that those who wait on God will renew their strength and fly on wings of eagles!
01:59
April 3, 2020
L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N. - Offer
The second "O" is for "offer". What a wonderful opportunity to deepen our prayers lives, in this time of lockdown.  Let's offer prayers for all affected and for those who are leading our nation through this crisis.
01:59
April 2, 2020
L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N. - Dwell
Not only can we dwell IN God's presence in this time, but we can dwell ON His goodness and find our fears calmed.
02:08
April 1, 2020
L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N. - Know
The "K" in "lockdown" is for "know". Christians can have assurance, and know that God is with them, because they have gotten to know His voice.
01:50
March 31, 2020
L.O.C.K.D.OW.N. - Call
Who you gonna call? Not ghostbusters... but Jesus! When a blind man called his name, Jesus went to him, and he'll come to you if you call on him.

L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N - Obey
While listening to God's voice is important, it's pointless without obeying what He says. Let's use this time of quiet to not only pay attention to His voice, but to obey it!
01:50
March 29, 2020
L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N. - Listen
During this time of self-isolation, we can quit our Martha-like busyness and like Mary, listen closely to the words of Jesus.

Faith over Fear (Fri): faith that death is not the end
When  John Wesley was caught in a deadly storm, he panicked... and marveled at the faith of his Moravian friends who simply sat calmly and sung in peace. He learned that his faith was too small. Are we trusting that death is not the end for us as Christ-followers? When death comes, let us not be found cowering in fear, but singing for joy.

Faith over Fear (Thurs): Faith in God's Touch
While WE must follow protocol by social distancing, let's be reminded that God's hand of love is still reaching out to us. Jesus touched the lepers, and he reaches us out to us even today.
01:28
March 26, 2020
Faith over Fear (Wed): Faith that God is with us
How do we make it through COVID-19? Nobody knows, but one thing we DO know is this: God will be with us. Let us acknowledge Jesus' presence with us today and say "thank God You're here!"
02:09
March 25, 2020
Faith over Fear (Tues): Faith that God has a plan
Let's be reminded today that God has a plan, even if we can't see it. While things look bleak from our side,  we can trust that God has something beautiful up his sleeve.
02:02
March 24, 2020
Faith over Fear (Mon): Panic and God
As COVID-19 continues to spread, what can a Christian do? One thing we must NOT do, is panic. Instead, let's turn our eyes upon Jesus.
02:26

Coming Home #3 - the real prodigal (Fri): excessive pleasure
God is not a cosmic killjoy! But when the lost ones come home, he throws a party. Yes, God wired us to enjoy good things in life. Maybe our worship would be transformed if we came to church on Sunday to celebrate the lost ones being found!
02:57
March 20, 2020
Coming Home #3 - the real prodigal (Thurs): excessive compassion
The Father is excessive in his compassion - laying aside even his dignity, to love his children. Jesus, too, laid aside his dignity to die a shameful death for his loved ones. Know today that you are loved this much by the God of the universe.
02:35
March 19, 2020
Coming Home #3 - the real prodigal (Wed): excessive perseverance
The Father climbs over mountains to find the lost ones and bring them home. But we can still reject him! As He stands at your door today, what are you going to say to the Prodigal Father? Will you turn him away? Or will you take his hand and head on home?
03:10
March 18, 2020
Coming Home #3 - the real prodigal (Tues): excessive generosity
God our Father is prodigal in his generosity. What pleasures have you enjoyed in your life? Let Kristofferson's humble words be yours today: "Why me Lord? What have I ever done to deserve even one of the pleasures I've known?"
02:41
March 17, 2020
Coming Home #3 - the real prodigal (Mon): a prodigal God
"Prodigal is a good description of the younger son in Luke 15... and also of the Father. Know today that the Father is excessive in His love for you!
02:34
March 16, 2020
Coming home #2 so near but so far (Fri): A grace problem
Above all the older prodigal seems to have a grace problem - wanting the rebel to get punished instead of mercy. But this is not the way of the Father! Let's come home and ask the Father to change our hearts to be more like His own. And let's not leave it - we don't know if the older prodigal ever repented, but we can make sure we come home as we repent today.
02:08
March 13, 2020
Coming Home #2 so near but so far (Thurs): A jealousy problem
The older prodigal is so jealous of his brother than he misses out on a great celebration - much like I was once at a Casting Crowns concert! Is jealousy clouding your view? Give it up, and come in to the party.
01:48
March 12, 2020
Coming Home #2 so close but so far (Wed): a superiority problem
The older prodigal thinks he is better than his younger brother, because he didn't rebel in a far-off land. This superiority complex is common in the church! Are we following Paul's words and considering others better then ourselves? Be humbled today, and come home.
02:30
March 11, 2020
Coming Home #2 so close but so far (Tues): a joy problem
The older prodigal serves without joy, and that doesn't bring glory to the Father or encourage anyone else to come home. Do we need to reconnect with Jesus, who said that when we live with him, NOTHING can take away our joy? Let's come home and recover the joy that only the Father gives.
02:38
March 10, 2020
Coming Home #2 so near but so far (Mon): an anger problem
If we don't run to a far-off land like the younger prodigal, the enemy will probably convince us to stay close to God but far from God in our hearts! The older prodigal has an anger problem. Are we slow to anger like God? Or do we fly off the handle? Come home and give God your anger today.
02:40
March 9, 2020
Coming Home #1 a far-off land (Fri): a prodigal's prayer
Have you rejected the Father's love? Squandered His gifts? Tried to earn back His love and found  that you can't? Come home today.
02:19
March 6, 2020
Coming Home #1 a far-off land (Thurs): rediscovering the Father's compassion
As the prodigal journeys home he is overwhelmed by the love of a compassionate Father. Not one of us is good enough to earn his love, but not one of us is bad enough to be spurned by Him. Instead, when we turn and come home, He runs to meet us!
03:18
March 5, 2020
Coming Home #1 a far-off land (Wed): earning the Father's forgiveness
The prevailing religious belief is that a person has to earn the acceptance of God. But the prodigal finds out the good news of the gospel - that no good deeds can ever make up for the sin in our lives. We simply need to come home to the Father.
02:44
March 4, 2020
Coming Home #1 a far off land (Tues): squandering the Father's gifts
Not only does the prodigal reject the Father, but he takes his undeserved gift and wastes it. We all do the same in various ways... It's time to come home.
02:35
March 3, 2020
Coming Home #1 - A far-off land (Mon): rejecting the Father's love
Why did the prodigal reject the Father? Was he a rebel with a cause or without a cause? Or was he trying to run away from pain?  We're all prodigals in some way, and we reject our loving Father. Perhaps for you it's time to come home.
03:22

Lent 2020 (with Bill Meaker): seriously!?
Rev. Bill Meaker closes our week, teaching us to take our faith seriously! Lent is a time for us to renew our love for God, taking it seriously, and being a follower rather than a fan.
02:48
February 28, 2020
Lent 2020 (with Bill Meaker): spring-cleaning
Bill joins us again to remind us that Lent can be a time to spring-clean our souls - through repentance and giving to the poor. Let's go deeper this Lent, turning from our sins and finding people who can do with our help.
02:49
February 27, 2020
Lent 2020 (with Bill Meaker): fasting
Bill Meaker teaches us on this Ash Wednesday, reminding us what fasting is all about - cleansing the body, mind and soul and bringing us closer to God. What are you fasting this Lent?
02:58
February 26, 2020
Jesus Calls Us To Witness (Tues): in tough times
Peter reminds the early Christians that the way they respond to the tough times they go through will be a witness to their love for Christ.  The same is true for us! If we withstand our trials with hope and joy, people will wonder what is that gives us such strength - and we'll have an opportunity to witness for Jesus.
02:35
February 25, 2020
Jesus Calls Us To Witness (Mon): confirming the truth
How can we be witnesses, when we didn't actually see Jesus die and rise from the dead? We can still testify firsthand about what He has done in our lives. This is our witnessing - telling the truth about how He has changed our hearts.
02:20
February 24, 2020
Jesus calls us to serve (Fri): servants are cared for by the Master
The good news is that when we serve in God's house, we are not treated like servants, but like loved sons and daughters!
02:09
February 21, 2020
Jesus calls us to serve (Thurs): servants care MOST about the Master
The servant's ultimate role is to point people to his Master's greatness. We must be kind to people in every way - including the ultimate kindness of pointing them to the only One who can save them.
03:16
February 20, 2020
Jesus calls us to serve (Wed): servants care deeply for people
What is the role of the servant? To tend to the needs of the people, rather than to sit at the table and be served. Which are you doing? Sitting at the table? Or getting your hands dirty and serving? Follow the example of Jesus.
02:51
February 19, 2020
Jesus Calls Us to Serve (Tues): servants care little for titles
The disciples were obsessed with their status and title in this world. But Christ showed them (and us) a better way: the way of service, which leads to true greatness.
02:07
February 18, 2020
Jesus calls us to serve (Mon): self-serving bias
When his disciples were showing their self-serving bias, Jesus said something radical: that greatness comes through serving others. Who are you serving today?
02:58
February 17, 2020
Jesus Calls us to surrender (Fri): our pleasures
Surrendering our pleasures doesn't mean living a pleasure-less life... it means finding our deepest pleasure and joy in our relationship with God. We renounce worldly pleasures to enjoy superior pleasure in Him.
02:49
February 14, 2020
Jesus Calls us to surrender (Thu): our possessions
We are not owners of our possessions, instead we surrender our ownership to God and become stewards of HIS blessings. A lesson today from a six year old named Blake.
03:05
February 13, 2020
Jesus Calls us to surrender (Wed): our pride
Instead of living for our glory and greatness, we live for His greatness - devoting our life to making Him look great.
02:16
February 12, 2020
Jesus Calls us to Surrender (Tues): our plans
When we surrender to God, we give him our plans, and yield to whatever plans HE has in mind for us.
02:32
February 11, 2020
Jesus calls us to surrender (Mon): more than a wooden cross
What does it mean to take up your cross and follow Jesus? It means surrender - giving up that which you consider your own, to Him.
02:32
February 10, 2020
Jesus Calls Us To Repent (Fri): a lifestyle
"The Christian who has stopped repenting has stopped growing" - John Blanchard. Repentance should be a lifestyle, not just a once-off! And remember, such a lifestyle is so much better with friends to support you.
02:04
February 7, 2020
Jesus Calls Us To Repent (Thurs): deeper than behaviour
The call to repentance is not a moralistic scolding! ANYONE can improve their morals, but what Jesus calls for is a change of heart, which results in a greater commitment to good. Give him your heart, and see your morals change flowing out of your new love for him.
02:59
February 6, 2020
Jesus Calls Us To Repent (Wed): repentance is turning around
"Remorse is being sorry... repentance is being sorry enough to stop." Have we confessed without repenting? Jesus calls us to do more than confess - he calls us to repent and change our ways.
02:34
February 5, 2020
Jesus Calls Us to Repent (Tues): repentance is for everyone
Some people think that they are basically good, and so they don't need to repent. But Jesus calls us all - the good, the bad, the ugly - to repent and believe the good news.
02:23
February 4, 2020
Jesus calls us to repent (Mon): opening words
What teaching does Jesus start his ministry with? Love one another? Blessed are the poor? Do unto others? No: his challenging opening words are for us to repent.
02:08
February 3, 2020
Covenant Prayer (Fri): rank me with whom you will
Some challenging words in Wesley's prayer teach us to be humble, and not worry about our rank in life. Whether we are placed high up or low down, our mission is the same: to love God, and care for the people around us with humility. Pray this prayer today, and gladly accept the position God leads you to.
03:24
January 31, 2020
Covenant prayer (Thurs): let me be laid aside for you
Wesley's covenant prayer encourages us to let go and step aside when the time is right. This is a sign of great spiritual maturity - trusting God and letting go when he asks you to. Samuel did it in the Old Testament - let's follow his example, and pray these words along with Wesley today.
02:41
January 30, 2020
Covenant prayer (Wed): put me to suffering
Wesley's covenant prayer challenges us to suffer for the sake of the gospel. The early Christians suffered greatly, and Paul said that suffering for Christ is a privilege! How deep is our commitment to our faith? Are we only committed to go as far as is comfortable? Or are we willing to suffer when God leads us into tougher places? He will always be with us, to get us through whatever we face.
03:11
January 29, 2020
Covenant Prayer (Tues): put me to what you will
Wesley's covenant prayer challenges us to put our hand and volunteer to be employed for God - to go for Him, wherever He may send us.  But, like Isaiah, it is only when we know we are forgiven that we are ready to go for God.
02:15
January 28, 2020
Covenant Prayer (Mon): no longer mine but yours
Wesley's covenant prayer reminds us who we belong to. His words remind us of God's great commitment to us - he has called us by name, and we belong to Him.
01:58
January 27, 2020
Dare to be different (Fri): dare to be transformed
Paul tells us to be different from the world - not fitting into its mold. But let's remember that while we are not OF the world, we are still IN it, and that we are different for a purpose: to draw people to the God who has saved us.
01:58
January 24, 2020
Dare to be different (Thurs): dare to give up your life for Jesus
John was not different for the sake of being different. He didn't try draw attention to himself, but he pointed away from himself, saying that Jesus must become greater and he should become lesser. THIS is the different that the world is thirsting for - not our quirkiness, but Christ's greatness.
02:55
January 23, 2020
Dare to be Different (Wed): dare to speak boldly
John the Baptist dared to be different, by speaking out against the evil he saw around him. Are we staying silent instead of standing up for what we believe in?
02:29
January 22, 2020
Dare to be Different (Tues): dare to live simply
In a world where accumulating possessions was normal, John (and Jesus) dared to be different, by treasuring God and people above STUFF. How about us?
02:42
January 21, 2020
Dare to be Different (Mon): different values
John the Baptist dared to be different... but not just on the surface. His values and passions set him apart. Can we dare to be different, not just in shallow ways, but from our hearts?
02:56
January 20, 2020
Fanny Crosby (Fri): Hope for a new life
My favourite lyric from Crosby's hymns teaches us to live in great hope for the life to come, where we will have new bodies, new sight, and new joy. 
02:04
January 17, 2020
Fanny Crosby (Thurs): Age is just a number
At 82, Fanny Crosby was full of like and joy, reveling in each new that God blessed her with. Can we be this joyful too, whether young, old or somewhere in between? If SHE could, then WE should!
02:11
January 16, 2020
Fanny Crosby (Wed): talented but humble
Fanny Crosby learned a great lesson in humility from her principal. In today's world it's easy to get puffed up and self-centred. But let's learn to be humble, because every ability we have comes only from our loving God.
02:30
January 15, 2020
Fanny Crosby (Tues): No unforgiveness
Despite someone blinding her at six weeks old, Fanny Crosby refused to be bogged down by unforgiveness. Who do you need to forgive today?
02:45
January 14, 2020
Fanny Crosby (Mon): The Blessings we DO have
Fanny Crosby was blinded at six weeks old, and yet she resolved to be grateful for the many other blessings she did enjoy. Are we miserable because of the blessings we don't have, forgetting the joy of the ones we do have?
02:04
January 13, 2020
New Year New Me Same God (Fri): a new day
Before we look too far into 2020, let's remember that God is our God TODAY. Embrace the 24 hours God has just placed in front of you, and live for His glory one day at a time.
02:35
January 10, 2020
New Year New Me Same God (Thurs): new passion for God's mission
Maybe a "new you" in 2020 means moving from a self-focused faith to a mission-focused faith. Will you be a missionary wherever it is God has placed you?
02:54
January 9, 2020
New Year New Me Same God (Wed): new trust in God's faithfulness
Great is His faithfulness, as the old songs goes. Perhaps this year we can be newly confident in His trustworthiness - which has never changed.
02:54
January 8, 2020
New Year New Me Same God (Tues): new gratitude for God's grace
A lesson from a Spotted Dikkop today! God saves us from drowning, but so often we then begin to reject him. May 2020 be different, as we are newly grateful for His consistent love for us.
03:09
January 7, 2020
New Year New Me Same God (Mon): a new decade
Two great promises to start a new decade: that God will always stay the same, and that we can always be changed in Him.
03:03
January 6, 2020
Three prayers for 2020 (Fri): Wellness
Let's honour God in all ways this year! Let's give him our hearts, and our bodies, and our minds, and being wholistic followers of Christ.
02:12
January 3, 2020
Three prayers for 2020 (Thurs): Hearts directed towards God's love
As the year starts, I pray that our hearts will turn towards God. Let's be honest - distractions are going to come, and the world will try direct our heart away from God. But we must turn to Him this year, for only He can fulfill us.
01:50
January 2, 2020
Three prayers for 2020 (Wed): For peace at all times
Happy new year! I pray that in 2020 we will find the great peace of God filling us, in whatever situations and circumstances come our way.
02:03
January 1, 2020
How to look back (Tues): how will GOD look back at 2019?
If God were to look back on the year that just passed, what would he think? Let's rest assured: not a split second went by where he wasn't in control. Trust in him today, as the year comes to a close, for he is trustworthy!
02:08
December 31, 2019
How to look back (Mon): how will you look back at 2019?
How will you look back at 2019? Try this: remember the good times gladly, and learn from the bad times. God was and is using it all for your good.
01:45
December 30, 2019
The Christmas Drama: Enter Jesus (Fri): Bring your treasures
The magi come to Jesus with treasures and gifts. What are you bringing to Jesus as the year ends? Bring your treasures, and bring your broken heart too. He will accept them both and love you deeply.
01:43
December 27, 2019
The Christmas Drama: Enter Jesus (Thur): Worship and rest
Are worship and rest compatible? Yes they are. Worship Him today, even if you're having a restful Boxing Day!
01:52
December 26, 2019
The Christmas Drama: Enter Jesus (Wed): Where is this Saviour?
Merry Christmas! Look for Jesus today. He is in the eyes of those around you. And if you open the door to your heart, he's living in you too.
01:56
December 25, 2019
The Christmas Drama: Enter Shepherds (Tues): Good news!
The ordinary shepherds hear the best news of all! They investigate it, and then when they find out it's all true, they share it passionately. As should we.
02:14
December 24, 2019
The Christmas Drama: Enter Shepherds (Mon): Ordinary People
Most royal births are full of pomp and splendour, with the elite being first to the party. But in the case of Jesus, it was the ordinary, working class shepherds who heard the good news during the world's first flash mob!
02:16
December 23, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Herod (Fri): Herod's misunderstanding
Herod thought the king of the Jews would rule with domination! Instead, Jesus came to be a Good Shepherd. Come to the Shepherd today.
02:04
December 20, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Herod (Thur): Herod's anger
When things didn't go his way, Herod got angry and even murdered. How do we react in these situations? Paul reminds us the way of Jesus - one of gentleness, kindness and goodness.
02:21
December 19, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Herod (Wed): Herod's lies
Herod was a liar, and his life did not match his words. Are we Christians the same? Let's search carefully for the Child this Christmas.
02:25
December 18, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Herod (Tues): Herod's disturbed soul!
The presence of Jesus is a person's life can be disturbing, or threatening even! For He comes to take over and become King of your heart. Don't be like Herod and resist His Kingdom: surrender to this new King today.
02:40
December 17, 2019
Day of Reconciliation 2019
South Africa celebrates the Day of Reconciliation on 16 Dec. Paul says that God has given us the ministry of reconciliation - let us be reconciled to God and to one another this Christmas.
02:24
December 16, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Joseph (Fri): a song in his heart
We close our look at Joseph by listening to Michael Card's wonderful "Joseph's Song".
03:57
December 13, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Joseph (Thurs): loved as his own
Joseph loved Jesus as his own, even though Jesus wasn't his flesh and blood. This love is an example to us! Let us love all those near to us as if they were our own family.
03:11
December 12, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Joseph (Wed): full of grace
Jesus was full of grace. Perhaps he learned this grace, in some way, from watching how Joseph treated Mary! Christmas is no time to hold grudges. Let's be full of grace and mercy.
03:05
December 11, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Joseph (Tues): faithful to God
Joseph was faithful to God, even at the cost of his own reputation. Let us have the same dedication this Christmas!
03:26
December 10, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Joseph (Mon): we need good men!
We need good men in this world! Men of respect, love, strength and dignity. Men, in other words, like Joseph.
02:39
December 9, 2019
The Christmas Drama -Enter Mary (Fri): treasuring the right things
Instead of getting caught in the hype, Mary ponders and treasures the right things about Christmas. Let us follow her example!
02:04
December 6, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Mary (Thurs): a humble worshipper
Mary doesn't take the glory for herself, but she humble points to God. Jesus does the same later on - did he learn this from her? Let's also point to Him this Christmas.
02:20
December 5, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Mary (Wed): a Willing Servant
Unlike other people in the Bible, Mary says "yes!" to God straight away. Let's learn from her today, and be willing servants when God calls us.
02:20
December 4, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Mary (Tues): a nobody
Society saw Mary as a "nobody" - but in God's eyes she was highly favoured! If he could use her, he will use you.
02:30
December 3, 2019
The Christmas Drama - Enter Mary (Mon): a Special Woman
Mary must have been a special lady. Do you have a special lady in your life? Maybe a wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, friend etc... How blessed you are if you do.
02:25
December 2, 2019
One of Us? (Fri): A phone-line to God
God isn't lonely in heaven - though Jesus relates to our loneliness. But God's phone-line is not just for the pope or pastors... He became one of us, so that we could each have a direct line to Him!
02:47
November 29, 2019
One of Us? (Thurs): The Face of God
We see the face of God when we see the face of Jesus. Yes, without the Son, we cannot see the face of the Father! And as we look at His face, our own faces begin to reflect his glory and love.
02:31
November 28, 2019
One of Us? (Wed): God WAS one of us!
The great mystery of the Christian faith is that God WAS one of us! He became a human being, but instead of being a slob, he showed us true holiness. Do we see HIM in everyone, including strangers around us?
02:50
November 27, 2019
One of Us? (Tues): Yeah yeah!
Does God's greatness and God's goodness bore us? Or thrill us? Joan Osborne's song reminds us to keep rediscovering our awe for our God.
02:31
November 26, 2019
One Of Us? (Mon): If God Had a Name
Can Christians get anything from Joan Osborne's song "One Of Us?" Today we look at the first line and remember the wonder and holiness of God's name.
03:20
November 25, 2019
Keeping Your Balance: Truth and Love (Fri): love of Jesus
A lesson from an old CrossRoad song on loving with the love of Jesus, so that people can come to see the truth. Full song here: https://open.spotify.com/track/6idfC7FJ8HEPIpCMeVbAJS
02:38
November 22, 2019
Keeping Your Balance: Truth and Love (Thurs): Jesus speaks TRUTH
Jesus didn't say "neither do I condemn you, go now and carry on as you were." Instead, he guides us away from our lives of sin, from a place of love. We must do the same for one another.
03:04
November 21, 2019
Keeping Your Balance: Truth and Love (Wed): LOVE comes first
Truth flows from love, not the other way around! Do people know you as FULL of love? Like Jesus, let us always love people first, and from that place of love, we can show them the truth.
03:33
November 20, 2019
Keeping Your Balance: Truth and Love (Tues): slow to speak
Jesus shows us in John 8 that waiting for the right moment to speak is wise. Instead of shooting our mouth off and speaking words that aren't true or loving, we are slow to speak.
02:25
November 19, 2019
Keeping Your Balance: Truth and Love (Mon): FULL of grace and truth
Truth without love is no truth at all... love without the truth will not last... But Jesus was full of grace, and full of truth. Are we keeping our balance here?
02:52
November 18, 2019
Keeping Your Balance: Trusting and Trying (Fri): TRY to persuade others
We are His hands and feet, and we are to share His good news with everyone! Let's take responsibility, and try our best to bring Jesus to the world.
03:18
November 15, 2019
Keeping Your Balance: Trusting and Trying (Thurs): TRY to please Him
Even though God has given us salvation for free, we still TRY to please him. Not to earn His love, but BECAUSE he loves us already.
03:28
November 14, 2019
Keeping Your Balance: Trusting vs Trying (Wed): TRUST in God's plan
Sometimes we try our best but things don't pan out the way we had planned. In times like these we have only one option: to TRUST in God's plan, which is going ahead anyway.
03:00
November 13, 2019
