Convince, Commit and Command

I was reading a passage the other day wherein Jesus reminds his followers that he fed the 5000 and then he goes on to heal blind Bartimaeus.  And from this reading, I picked up three important points that I would like to share with you. 1.       Christ Convinces Jesus had to convince…

Unity

Sunday 10 March 2018 at Gracepoint Church, Johannesburg Within the church, in our country and in the world at large, we are so divided.  Issues like politics, race and gender seem to constantly marginalise us from each other.  But scripture calls us to be unified as the body of Christ.
