Come and see

At the heart of the Christmas message is a scandal. Let's be clear about this. We are being told that God made himself known as our Saviour in one particular person, in one particular place, and at one particular time. He decided to reveal himself through a group of insignificant people, living in a…

Jesus Christ serves sinners

How did the Son of God appear when he came to earth? Like Superman? No. Like an Emperor with a vast entourage? No. As a golden-tongued prophet who could make people weep or laugh at will? No. Paul says that when Christ came to earth, he made himself 'nothing' and took 'the very nature…

Not born a Christian!

Amanda Williams was brought up in a Christian family and had attended church all her life. But that did not make her a real Christian, as she explains here. It was not until last year, when I was seventeen, that I became a Christian. Being brought up in a Christian family I was aware…

Is death the end

In a two-year study in ten Dutch hospitals, doctors interviewed 344 heart attack victims. They found that 12% of cardiac-arrest survivors reported having 'near-death experiences' (NDEs) before being resuscitated. They had experienced emotions, visions or lucid thoughts while unconscious with no signs of pulse, breathing or brain activity. Some reported having 'out-of-body' experiences. One…

Why did they call him ‘Jesus’?

As the time approaches for a baby to be born, the parental debate over the name of the child gets more focused. Maybe there are three names left, but sooner or later the choice must be finalised. The name is important. The parents are going to say it, and the child is going to…

Music – the god that cannot save

'The Verve' music band have a picture of the cross on the inside cover of their 1995 album entitled A Northern Soul. The caption alongside the cross is 'Music saves'. The statement makes its message quite clear - in today's society, music has become the focus, even the god, of many people's lives. It…

A winter rainbow

As we headed for church on that cold, winter Sunday, we saw that the heavenly Artist had been busy again. Overnight he had transformed our world into a crystal garden. Brilliant sunshine sparkled off the hoarfrost clinging to trees and bushes, houses and fields. Then, rounding the corner at Turkey Hill, we stared in…

Unwanted gifts

Ties, socks, underwear and aftershave are the standard gifts for the middle-aged man at Christmas. As an average thirty-something family man I have received more than my fair share over the years. Of course, as a dutiful husband, father, son and son-in-law, I always try to look pleased as I open my gifts on…

Heart failure

The specialist in hospital told me that my heart was in a serious condition. How did he know? First of all, he was guided by the symptoms - pain, tightening of the chest, breathlessness and an inability to do ordinary things. There is so much heart trouble today that many will recognise these symptoms,…

A new way

Being a teenager in Llanelli, Wales, in the 1970s seemed great to me. The 'Scarlets' had beaten the 'All Blacks' and gone on to win the Rugby Cup Final four times in row. As well as this, there were always Scarlets in the Welsh team and touring with the British Lions. The Welsh team…

Twilight world

The war was on and, as a lad of seventeen, I joined the Merchant Navy. Every port at sea was a round of drink and women. I actually became that character 'the drunken sailor'. Every time I fell to temptation my conscience got harder. Out in the Middle East I saw more evil, sex…
