There are some huge promises in this chapter of Galatians. One of the most earth-shattering is this: God wants Jesus to 'be formed in you'. That means that all the parts of you you're unhappy with, all the parts that frustrate and vex you, God has a plan to replace them with something astounding...

This one's really easy to fall into. Maybe you've fallen into it before. You start off enthusiastic about some great kingdom idea, or you get hyped up for evangelism, or you start a charity idea. Then, quickly, you get overwhelmed with the huge amount of work you need to do. There are so many...

When we’re hurting, we can end up isolating ourselves. People try and help but our pain is all we can think about so we push them away. We may be hurting so much that we feel like we can’t trust anyone anymore. We may feel that we can’t even trust God. But if we believe God caused our pain, we...

There are many different types of loves. There’s the love of parents, or a husband or wife, or a friend. We may not experience them all, and we definitely won’t experience them all in the same way. But whichever we experience, there’s one thing that we’ll all have in common. Human love is flawed...

Just as the apostles worked amazing miracles through the power of God, Simon the sorcerer was able to do astonishing things through the power of the devil. So how did the apostles handle the situation? Did they avoid it? Live peacefully with it? Say, ‘It’s no big deal’? No, Peter confronted...

A busy life isn’t necessarily a productive life. We tend to fill our schedules up with loads of things, trying to fit everyone in and to help out with everything we’re asked to do. We juggle study, work, relationships, church, daily responsibilities and can end up so busy that we’re stressed,...

God is a mender and not a discarder. With Him, broken lives aren’t the end of the story. When we feel broken, useless and that we’ve gone too far away from the path that God wanted us to go down, there’s hope. God doesn’t give up on us. We’re never too broken for Him to restore. In Matthew it...

We’ve probably all been in that place where we’ve let the past dictate our future. When someone hurts us we can hold a grudge. And when grudges build up, we carry all that hurt, pain, anger and bitterness around with us. That’s a pretty heavy load. A load that stops us from moving forward into...

God’s given us all gifts and skills. Even when we struggle to see them, or put ourselves down, it’s the truth. The question is: ‘what are we doing with them?’ Maybe we’re using them already, maybe there’s some that we’ve put to one side. Fear can make us hide our talents and abilities. But that’...

Paul writes: ‘As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body [church] is healthy and growing and full of love.’ There are two kinds of growth – symbiotic growth and parasitic growth. Symbiotic growth is a give-and-take relationship where both sides...
