Day 5- Called For All Seasons

Bible Reading:  Hebrews 10:19-39 I’ve really liked soccer for many years, but there are parts of it that I totally hate. I totally hate how players who have previously sworn and made beautiful claims about loyalty to a club will suddenly make a celebrated U-turn and go and play for a known rival of the club, simply because the original club is going through a bad patch or they get offered more money and things like that. I know it’s…

Day 4- Called To Serve

Bible reading:  Genesis 37:1-11; Genesis 45:1-15 Have you ever interpreted information wrongly? Like you saw an alert from your bank, and because you were so broke, you were already rejoicing, only to realize that it was a debit alert, not a credit alert.  I think that’s what it must have been like with Joseph.

With the twelve disciples, that was actual very literal. It feels like that’s…

Day 2- Called To Learn

Bible Reading: Matthew 11:25-30; Philippians 4:11-13 Imagine you were boarding an aeroplane and then you just randomly overheard two of the airline people saying that the pilot didn’t actually learn how to fly a plane. He’s  largely just figuring things out and hoping for the best. I can imagine the speed with which you’ll jump out.  The truth is that for everything important in life or about life, we recognise the importance of learning and being trained in it- whether…

Day 1- Called To Be Disciples

Bible Reading:  Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 11:19-26 I remember when my wife and I had our first child, and then one day while taking a little walk with our two-or-so month old daughter, some overzealous street uncle walking towards us does that thing of tapping the baby’s checks and says ‘fine boy, how are you?’ Typical Nigerian parents then would usually then go ‘she said she’s fine, thank you’.   There were two reasons why he didn’t get any such response…
