Read It Again: I Change Not

Malachi is the last book of the Old Testament. It only has four chapters but contains a powerful end-time message. It closes off with a prophesy on the First Coming and the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. It also prophesies about each coming being preceded by Elijah the prophet. But today's reflection is … Continue reading Read It Again: I Change Not

Read it again: I am Alpha and Omega

Here comes our weekly reflection on the Word of God. As stated before the Bible contains Scriptures that act like seed. Once planted in our hearts, as we meditate on the meaning of these wonderful words, something changes within us. One such Scripture is found in the Book of Revelation, my personal favourite, where our … Continue reading Read it again: I am Alpha and Omega

Read It Again: I am the way, the truth and the life

The Bible contains some of the greatest stories ever recorded in human history. One such story is the narration of Abraham having a physical and visible visitation from God. It happened on this wise. One hot afternoon, Abraham was enjoying the shade under a big tree in his compound. He saw three men approach his … Continue reading Read It Again: I am the way, the truth and the life

Read it again: Give us this day our daily bread

One of my favourite Scriptures in the Bible is the prayer that our Lord Jesus Christ taught His disciples. I have been told that perhaps there is no better prayer than this. It encompasses everything, it is on point, and being condensed, it is able to be expanded in any manner of possible variations. I … Continue reading Read it again: Give us this day our daily bread

Read it again: do not worry about tomorrow

One of the most embraced statements by our Lord Jesus Christ says do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. This has been seen as if it means that you do not have to take care of affairs, especially if the outcome will not be seen today. So just lay back, relax … Continue reading Read it again: do not worry about tomorrow

Read it again: bodily exercise profiteth little

Paul in the first book of Timothy admonishes the young preacher on things he must incorporate in his ministry. One of them was encouraging Timothy to focus on exercising unto godliness. "For the bodily exercise profiteth little:", he says. (1 Timothy 4:8) This seems to discourage Timothy from taking physical exercise. But read it again. … Continue reading Read it again: bodily exercise profiteth little

Lion Cubs on Bunda Hill

Lilongwe, the Capital City of Malawi, has two rock domes on the southern fringe of the city outskirts. Depending on where you are standing, one looks like a home-made giant samoosa, and the other like a bun baked in an earthen oven typically found in surrounding villages, with some crumbs trailing on one end. Both … Continue reading Lion Cubs on Bunda Hill

Don’t beat about the bush: face it.

I believe the expression "do not beat about the bush" comes from someone who is reluctant to face the truth but is rather being circumventing. It is also called prevarication. Well, this applies to everyone more often than we care to admit. Humans are not very good at addressing weaknesses that point inwardly to themselves. … Continue reading Don’t beat about the bush: face it.

Read It Again: The flesh is weak but the heart is willing

When our Lord Jesus Christ was about to face death, He went up the Olive Mountain to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane. He was deeply disturbed by what was about to prevail, and the human part of him could not look forward to the pain, torture and humiliation that would lead to His crucifixion … Continue reading Read It Again: The flesh is weak but the heart is willing

First Hike of 2018

Yesterday, 1st January 2018, I had three choices: Dedza mountain, Nkhoma hill or Bunda hill. Dedza is the tallest and farthest among the three, and Bunda is the shortest and closest. Nkhoma comfortably sits in the middle. Out of the three Nkhoma has the most interesting trail. It allows you to warm up for 20 … Continue reading First Hike of 2018
