Day 7: What The Bible Says About Grace

Bible Reading: Luke 15:11-29 As we round off this Surge series, I think it’s really beautiful that we can consider an overview of what the Bible teaches about Grace! What’s your dominant disposition towards Grace? Is it some misrepresented subject (like in Jude 1:4) to the extent that you have become obnoxious or touchy about it? Or is it some anchor on which your whole life stands (like in 1 Corinthians 15:10) to the extent that you feel lifeless without it?…

Day 6: What The Bible Says About Work

Bible Reading: John 5:16-23 Does work come with thoughts of pressure for you? Maybe it was the battalion of plates staring at you for a wash as a five year old that left you concluding that you had been brought into an evil work-based world; or maybe it’s the pressure that stands up to you when you sit at your office table on Monday morning.  We live in a world so full of a drive towards work. Identity is largely…

Day 5: What The Bible Says About Generosity

Bible Reading: 2 Corinthians 9; John 12:23-26 If you’re like me, seeing corn starting to appear on the streets is one of the best things to happen in recent times with how unpredictable this year has turned out to be, I think it’s really awesome that we could count on corn to arrive right on time, and it sure did! Maybe what’s more amazing is that although we knew so little of what was ahead of us this year, we…

dAY 4: What The Bible Says About Prayer

Bible reading: Luke 11: 1-13 I find it instructive that Jesus was a man of prayer. I mean, He was God in the flesh and still He prayed. He really didn’t have to, yet we find that he was constantly in communication with The Father. So if Jesus prayed, why won’t we? Let’s double back to the beginning. In Genesis chapter 3, God would come in the cool of the evening to fellowship with Adam and Eve. They didn’t have…

Day 3: What The Bible Says About Witnessing

Bible reading: Mark 16:1-20 In my early childhood days, my nuclear and extended families either lived in the same compound or within a short walking distance. To maintain order among the large number of teenagers and young children in constant interaction, a hierarchy based on age was set-up. I was a lowly number 9 out of 13 at age five. The top 4 were basically untouchable and unapproachable by those of us lower on the food chain except when any…

What The Bible Says About Worship

Bible Reading: John 4:1-26 Do you remember the ‘NITEL’ days? NITEL was as good as communication allowed back then. I remember that I could only talk to my relatives abroad by going to my neighbour’s house because we were not amongst the privileged few that had telephone boxes in their homes. Of course, making a call in the neighbour’s house came with certain restrictions; you can’t call when there’s no NEPA power supply, when the owners are making a call,…
