As followers of Christ, we must listen to the voice of God spoken in the Holy Scriptures.  We hope you find the following spiritual reflections enlightening.

The Bride of Christ suffers with Her Saviour!

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” Matthew 16:24 The teachings of Jesus are in stark conflict with what the world promotes. The world promotes pleasure and God says “...

Blessed are they who are persecuted because of righteousness…

Jesus said, “Blessed are they who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:10 This is the path that Jesus chose to save the world. It was a difficult path, a path of humiliation, torture and brutality, yet He did not shy from it. He...

Living in the presence of God

Jesus said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 Consider the little branch that falls off the vine, it can no longer live. It will no longer produce any fruit.  Let’s...
