Freed, but at a price

Just days before Easter 2018, Redouane Lakdim, a 25-year-old Moroccan criminal, opened fire on passengers in a car in southern France, killing one.  Minutes later he fired on a group of police officers who were jogging near the castle in Carcassonne. He then drove to the town of Trèbes and stormed a supermarket, shooting…

They shall not grow old

The Great War, the war to end all wars, seems far away from our world today. A hundred years have gone by since the end of that war and all those that could tell us about their experience, yet Peter Jackson’s film, They Shall Not Grow Old, brings their voices to our ears. The…

A soldier’s story

The last article in a three-part series of Gavin Dickson’s testimony I was truly sorry for my rotten sin. God sent his Holy Spirit to dwell within me, and my heart, the real me, was changed. This new relationship with God was so real. Now, of course, I know verses from the Bible that…

Burden of guilt removed

I was born in Sticker, near St Austell in Cornwall, and my earliest memories are of attending the local Methodist chapel and Sunday school. When I was 15, I saw a film on the crucifixion at the cinema and was challenged by an evangelist afterwards. Then, when I was 17, I left school and…

From creation to Christ

I was brought up in a Christian family where the Bible was taught, and from a very early age was surrounded by other Christians. However, this did not mean that I was a Christian myself, although at times I thought I was. But I had not personally accepted Jesus into my life. Deep down,…

Drawn by God’s Word

I was born in 1964 and brought up in South Yorkshire. I have been married now for 28 years. Before my marriage, my interests were football, going to the pub and just having a good time, and I still wanted this life to continue after marriage. Neither my wife nor I had any interest…

I was born into a Christian home in Brunei. As a child my parents taught me about the Lord Jesus Christ from the Bible. My father is a preacher in our home church and my mother translates the sermons into Mandarin. However, it was not until I was 13 that I realised that I…

My mother very sadly died when I was only 11 years old. My uncle and aunt, who already had five children took me in. They were kind but poor. After the war I was introduced to a very lovely man, who became my husband. The marriage produced two children, a son and a daughter.…

Overwhelmed by God’s love

Many years ago, I found myself in a hopeless, helpless state; at a place in my mind where nothing made sense. I had become extremely cynical and could see no point in anything. The world seemed to be a place of suffering. Happiness had become an elusive state of mind that didn’t last and…

What Jesus means to me

The Bible says that to believers Jesus Christ is ‘precious’. They love to speak of him and what he means to them in their lives. Jesus Christ means more to me than anyone else. As the apostle Paul says: ‘To me to live is Christ, and to die is gain’ (Philippians 1:21). He is…

Hearing the true gospel

I was not brought up in a Christian family, but my parents had a friend who helped with leading a Sunday school. Therefore, my sister and I went along. I don’t remember much about it and it didn’t seem to make any impression on me at the time. Despite this, I often used to…

God’s love working everything for good

Having grown up in a Christian home and attended church since I was born, I don’t remember a time when I didn’t believe in God. I definitely had a good understanding of the fundamental core of Christianity: that I was a sinner, that I was loved by God, and that there was forgiveness and…
