do you have an evangelism list?

I was chatting recently with some new ladies in my church and motivating them to use their gifts and talents as an evangelism hook in their community. We shared testimonies and I found myself recalling when I first moved into a gated estate in my area. I stood on the plot, gazed over the estate, and clearly heard the voice of the Lord say to me, “I am giving you this area for you to use your influence for Me”. I was so inspired with this and shared it with my cell group leader at the time, and he organised for our group to walk around the perimeter of the estate and claim it for Jesus. There were not many homes built yet, and thus we were able to do...

salvation prayer

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the Name of Jesus. I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself; I need your forgiveness and salvation. I believe that Jesus died on the Cross, and on the third day He rose to be with You. I confess Jesus as the Lord of my life. I invite Jesus Christ to be my Lord and Saviour and I surrender my life to Him. Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace that has saved me from my sins. Please, Lord Jesus, transform my life so that I may bring glory and honour to You alone and not to myself. Thank you Jesus for the gift of eternal life. ■...

letters to the editor

Mankind is putting too much trust in our own knowledge Reading your publication is so spiritually refreshing. It’s so satisfying to read something that promotes the undiluted Gospel. As an educator, I was really touched by Tendai Chitsike’s article “A World of Different Opinions” in the October issue. It was on whose view carries the most weight. As an educator, I have witnessed opinions of men replacing Jehovah’s principles in educating our children. This has not only brought disaster, but also confusion as opinions of men chop and change. God gave us Jesus as our authority, who is consistent and knows what we need. Mankind is putting too much trust in our own bodies of knowledge, such as sciences and so forth. Once again, thank you for reminding us as...

the race you must run!

Did you make New Year’s resolutions? Were they of Spiritual importance? The new year often begins with many resolutions that are given up before February even starts. It seems that we need a spiritual solution. Take your resolutions and hold them up against what the Lord says, have faith in God and find out what He thinks about them. Why not also consider them in the context of the race that God has given you to run? The path to freedom and joy God recently asked me to reflect on my race. Is it His race that He has ordained for my life? We all have a race to run and it’s been given to us, not chosen by us. The question is: Will you embrace your race or...

new york passes shocking bill allowing abortion up to birth, for any reason

Members of the New York Senate conference celebrating the Reproductive Health Act After an intense debate for and against the proposal, the New York state Legislature passed a bill recently that makes it legal for doctors and other health care professionals, such as midwives and physician assistants, to perform abortions up until birth for any reason in the state. The so-called Reproductive Health Act that abortion advocates have been trying to get passed for 12 years and has been vehemently opposed by religious and conservative groups, passed with a 38-28 vote and thunderous applause in the state Senate chamber. Abortion was legalised in New York three years before the decision, but remained on the state’s criminal code, making it a felony to perform late-term abortions. ■...
