What are you waiting for? (Part 1) The Patience of Job

7 Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. 8 You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. 9 Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door! 10 Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 As you know, we count as blessed...

Episode 54: Barbara Reaoch

I think they (children) are the most unreached people group for the gospel in our world today. Barbara and her husband lived in Michigan before moving to Cape Town, South Africa, to teach Bible Study Fellowship classes. They also worked with the Rafiki Foundation to train young women in job and life skills. With her grandchildren far away, Barbara began to write Bible studies for them to bridge the distance. After returning to the US, Barbara directed the Children’s Division of Bible Study Fellowship International. Barbara now lives in Minneapolis, MN, where she is learning to love snow again! She...

Different Paths to Sanctification

There, then, is the message of this book–that through marriage, “the mystery of the gospel is unveiled.” Marriage is a major vehicle for the gospel’s remaking of your heart from the inside out and your life from the ground up.”[1] I was in my mid-twenties and in my final year of Social Work when I first read these words from Tim and Kathy Keller’s book The Meaning of Marriage. I didn’t want to be single. Rather, I envisaged myself using my future marriage to minister to the most vulnerable children in our society. Married people get sex and sanctification; who...

Finding Hope in Melbourne

‘Adopt a Melbournian’ was one of the memes going around recently. On one hand I was surprised, but on the other hand, it’s understandable. Although we still like to hold on to the title of the ‘world’s-most-liveable-city’, the level of restrictions have been amongst the toughest and longest in the world. Of course, we are painfully aware that many other cities in the world are dealing with more dire COVID-related circumstances. Nevertheless, the struggle’s been real. Is it possible, however, that God intends more for Melbourne than just making us a cautionary tale? Is it possible, however, that God intends...

Church, the Flesh and the Devil

While churches remain closed in Victoria, many Christians in other parts of the country face a new struggle to return to physical meetings… We went to church on Sunday. Physically. In person. Even though we are on annual leave. It wasn’t our church. It was the one five minutes from where Catherine and I are staying. But it was safe. There were all sorts of well thought-out customised COVID safe protocols. Like our home church, it was far far safer than the coffee shop we went to afterwards; or the local Saturday morning sports we saw yesterday; or the shopping...
