Welcome...

Whoever you are and wherever you are on this beautiful ball we call ‘Earth' I want to connect with you and let you know that you matter to God and to me.

There is a war raging in the unseen realm for your soul - a war between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness, between good and evil, between truth and error and between life and death.

In Luke 10:29 a lawyer asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbour?" In response, Jesus tells of a priest and a Levite, who seeing a man robbed and injured by thieves and left to die on the side of a road, passed him by. In contrast, a Samaritan, showed compassion and not only stopped to help him but took him to an inn to be cared for. A neighbour, according to Jesus, is one who shows mercy on those in need and does not pass them by.

More than a decade ago God inspired me to write ‘Dear Neighbour' letters. My prayer is that my words will bring hope and healing to all but especially to those who find themselves in spiritual need alongside the road of life. God has been so good to me and it is my privilege to direct your thoughts to Jesus, the lover of your soul.

You are my neighbour and I will not pass you by.

DEAR NEIGHBOUR LETTERS

God's Recipe for your Life
Friday, 26 February 2016 09:30

Cake

Dear Neighbour,

Have you noticed how recipe books contain predominantly photographs of the end product? This fact serves an important purpose: the magnificent images are designed to inspire us to open our pantries and fill our kitchen counters with the myriad of ingredients that will be needed in order to re-create what we have seen with our eyes.

In the same way, God has a glorious final image of your life in His mind. You are destined to be like Jesus Christ, God’s Son. The following two versions of the same scripture confirm this fact:

For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren (Romans 8:29 ESV).

God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him (Romans 8:29 The Message).

However, before the glorious final image appears a lot of work needs to take place, involving a great variety of ingredients. Herein lies our problem: The events of life are like the ingredients required to transform us. Ingredients like cream, milk, sugar and strawberries are enjoyable on their own but ingredients such as flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, to name a few, are extremely unpalatable in isolation. Personally, I am experiencing an “unpalatable” period in my life (fourteen months and still not at an end!) during which I am dealing with an open wound. God’s Word has taught me how to view the unpleasant events of life and the answer is to be found in the previous verse:

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28 NKJV).

As the ‘Divine Baker’, God promises to use ALL the events of your life, both pleasant and unpalatable, and bring them together in a glorious mix, at the right time and exactly in the correct proportions to make you into a glorious creation! Notice this promise is ONLY for those “who love God”. Once you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, God will combine all the experiences of your life (pre-conversion and post-conversion!) and work them “together” for His glory and for our good. What an amazing and precious promise!

Dear friends, do not be impatient (as many bakers are) and try to take your cake out of the oven too early. Under-cooked cakes are always a disappointment. They both taste and look bad. Patiently allow God to have His perfect way in your life. Be encouraged that “unpalatable” events in your life will prove to be indispensable ingredients – a cake without baking powder would never rise to great heights! God is at work in your life and one only judges a baker by the end result!

What have you asked of God lately?
Thursday, 09 April 2015 07:10

drawing a line in the sand

Dear Neighbour,

In late 2010, over a period of a few months, I repeatedly felt the word “ASK” come up in my spirit. I was confused as I felt that God was prompting me to ask Him for something – but I didn’t know what! I remember talking to Him and saying that I was praying for other people and I regularly prayed for my own health...

 
God's Indescribable Gift To You

Dear Neighbour,

Jan and I have adopted the American tradition of Thanksgiving but we celebrate it in South African style with less emphasis on the food and more on the opportunity it gives us with our friends to express our gratitude to God for his many blessings during the past year. So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture, Will give You thanks forever; We will show forth Your praise to all generations (Psalm 79:13)...

 
The Missing 'R' Word

Dear Neighbour,

Happy New Year to all my readers! With a new year comes the opportunity to step back from our lives and assess the past year and make plans for the next twelve months. Jan and I have plans for 2015 but we always add the words “God willing” to our plans as we want to ensure that we are in the centre of God’s will. We live in a turbulent world and the only security available to man is in Jesus Christ. God brought to my attention recently that there is an infallible way to ensure that all is well with your soul – it is to be found in the ‘R’ word – a word that is missing from our vocabulary...

 
Walking & Talking with God

Dear Neighbour,

Recently a sincere Hindu lady remarked, “I pray every day to God; but I don’t know who He is”. How tragic to speak to someone on a daily basis and years later still not know what He is like or even who He is. The Christian God is different...
