If you think that a marriage partner is going to be source of your happiness, then you are going to be disappointed. Were you ever happy when you were young? Was it because of your future partner? Don't think so... Unless you have the joy of the Lord in your present situation, you'll never be happy if you married the Prince/Princess of England! Marriage is a lot of work. It isn't honeymooning all year round, it demands sacrifice and patience. Don't wait for a day or person to be Happy. Be joyful in your purpose because it's your purpose that will lead you to your future spouse.... #dating#godliness#spouse#love#marriage#relationships#truth#happiness#holiness#couples#courting#partner
I'm not good at all, no one Is good but God Almighty. So don't look to me but up to Him. Man is not infallible, so don't trust in the arm of flesh. Don't look for the good in people, it isn't there. What I do is because of Christ in me....
Church On The Move has collaborated with West Park School to perform Carols by Candlelight, an annual masterpiece of wonderful songs that relate to the nativity story dating around 5 A.D. As the angelic voices sang the harmonious lyrics, it changed the atmosphere as if this was the night of the first Noel. Pastor Johan opened up the night with an interesting introduction, you wouldn't have a birthday party for someone and not invite them would you? Neither would you celebrate the birth of Christ without Him.... #christmas#christ#noel#jesus#december#church
To the girl of my dreams: Where the heck are you man? So on social media, we find a great emphasis on relationship statuses. It seems as if you are 'taken', then you must be happy and if you are single, you're just unlucky. But I bet @worththewar will disagree. Love happens when it's supposed to, not when we feel like, or when trends demands us to. Live for Christ, not for people or status quo. #single#relationships#courting#godliness
If you love this world, oh boy! You have made war with God. For to make amends with this fallen world is to be an enemy of God. This world will one day be destroyed, so don't live for here, don't throw all your eggs in this basket. Rather live for heaven because that's where you want to be, right? Jesus is the only way to heaven, so stick with Him, not your preference... #jesus#love#god#heaven#world#worldliness#eternity
With the inevitability of death, it is most vital that we don't miss the possibility of life. Everyday I question myself: Are you really doing what you are supposed to do? And hence, in my most vivid imagination, I clearly visualize the scene of meeting God one day, face to face... Surrounded by the majesty of His glory, held in awe of the splendour, I would be speechless. But of course, I would have to provide some answers to some intrinsic questions... God: Welcome my child to my glorious abode... Kristian: Oh Lord my God, you are most wonderful in all your ways. God: Tell me, Kristian, what did you do with your life? Kristian: Huh, I finished school, I studied a bit and I got a good job. I bought a car and a house before getting married to the girl of my dreams. I then had kids and raised them up to be like you and put them through school. I saved enough for my retirement and I ended life well, leaving an inheritance for my children. I even saw my grandchildren. Oh, and I also went to Church... God: It seems that you had a very nice life Kristian, pity we can't see anything left of it... Kristian: Meaning? God: All that you spent your life doing does not matter. Where is it now? It's faded, gone with the wind. You did nothing that will show on this side. You basically lived for yourself and the world, you didn't bring anyone with you. You lived for that side, you invested into that side but did nothing for here. Kristian: But I went to Church? God: I never told you to go to Church, I told you to be the Church.... #church#life#hope#living#death#jesus#god#love#eternity#heaven#world#stopfollowingyourheart#startliving#startloving#wakeup#riseup#lookup#openyoureyes#bethechurch#liveholy#godliness#holiness#holyspirit#forever#outreach#live
You might not know it, but we actually scrape past death every single day. It's God who keeps here, alive yet another day. Therefore, we have no reason to complain. Since death could come at anytime, what lives should we ought to live? Should we not live holy lives? Should we not live for Christ day and night? Should we not aim to impact the lives of those around in the light of eternity? #christianity#jesus#god#eternity#death#life#alive#heaven#peace
We find in the book of Acts that the disciples preached the Gospel in Jerusalem first before going beyond the borders. I think that we too should share that sentiment. We want to go overseas to accomplish missions yet neglect the needs in our very community. There are people dying, not physically but deep on the inside and only Jesus can help them. But how can they know about Him if we sit and wait until the next outreach mission? How can they be helped if our finances are used to by a plane ticket, all expense paid trip when they don't even have their bare necessaries? We have claimed a life of comfort with the illusion that we are doing God's work. I may sound critical and judgmental to some but am I not factual? Am I not right? We turn our noses at the poor on the street but seem extremely concerned about a hungry child in some rural country. Has our Great Commission optional? Does it have terms and conditions? #love#truth#outreach#gospel#bible#evangelism#prayer#salvation#jesus#god#holyspirit#community#queensburgh#malvern#durban#godliness#poor#charity#hope
