Scroll down for embedded video memories on Billy Graham from BGEA, Terry Virgo, Adrian and maybe you!My long term pastor, dear friend, and co-author Tope Koleoso often likes to say, to do life well you must handle transitions well. You cannot sleep walk into a transition. Not if you want to be intentional, not if you want to be wise, not if you want to discern what it is that is expected of you in the next phase.  Its why the church… Read more

It is often said that 90% of full-time church pastors do not make it to the end of their natural working life as a pastor. It is also well known that many ordinary Christians who profess a powerful faith, when you go back and meet them years later, they will sadly no longer be walking with Jesus at all. There are still more who once had at least a measure of the passion and sincerity which John Stott said singled… Read more

Just a few minutes ago I turned to my phone and received an alert from BBC News that Billy Graham has died today aged 99. Preacher to millions in massive football stadia. Counsellor of Presidents, Kings and Queens. It would not be too much to say that he single handedly averted the decline of the Christian Church in the West more than anyone else of his generation. But God also achieved amazing things through him in every continent of the… Read more

  When Jesus tells us to follow him he doesn’t mean to subscribe to his updates on social media.  ‘Follow’ has come to mean a click of a button that indicates a momentary interest in reading other things someone has written. The truth is we can’t really follow thousands of people. All too soon our social media feed becomes clogged with stuff we are simply not interested in. Jesus is calling for us to follow him in a much stronger… Read more

  There is a Voice that demands to be heard above the competing crowd. There is Someone who commands we listen to Him over everyone else. There is a Man who speaks with such authority, and yet such winsomeness that He compels our attention. There is a leader who never published a book, never held public office, never posted so much as a tweet, and yet His influence is greater than any other human. This Man lived and died 2000 years… Read more

Do you feel weary, weighed down by the drudgery and burdens of life? Read more

Jesus commands and expects his followers to fast from time to time. Yet fasting is not something that is widely discussed in the Church today. Read more

The first command of Jesus recorded in Mark’s gospel is ‘Repent and believe‘. These twin words are like two sides of the same coin. Read more

At the beginning of this year, I have resolved to look more closely at the commands of Jesus. And to learn to obey them. Since Christians are meant to be followers of Jesus, it is remarkable that we don’t pay more attention to his actual words. In my recent post on establishing a foundation in your life, I addressed some words of Jesus which we are perhaps overfamiliar with: “Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice… Read more
