Truly, Truly, You will Die

Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.”—John 8:51 (ESV) The Law kills. That is what it is intended to do. And John 8:51 does just that. “Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death (ESV)”. Identical to those

The Battle of the Heart

The gospel is good news to all who hear it. That is known. Its relieving to hear that your sins, for example, are forgiven and that God remembers them no more because of what Jesus has done. But therein lies the problem–the human heart finds it so hard to believe the gospel, in fact the hardest

The Broken Mirror

    We love mirrors. We really do, but not always. On my good day, when I look ‘stunning’, I want to stare into the mirror over and over again. I love what I am looking at. I guess that goes for you too. The mirror in a sense gives us hope—that we still got

Jesus is My Hero—and Yours Too

As I write this, my home country, Uganda is commemorating Heroes’ Day. For the best part of the day, medals will be awarded to our National heroes, both dead and alive. It is the same energy on Facebook. Everyone, young and old; male and female; poor and rich, is letting the world know who their
