May 23, 202203:41
EP50: Who Are You Becoming?

EP50: Who Are You Becoming?

You cannot ‘become’ what you already are. You become what you’re presently not. Judas didn’t begin as a traitor. He became.

‘Becoming‘ (in the negative sense) is a process that begins with the gradual compromise of your core moral values.
Apr 08, 202206:01

EP45: Inexplicable Peace When Life Happens

There is a peace we cannot explain.
It’s the peace that acknowledges the presence of our problems and still CHOOSE to rejoice.
It is the peace whose anchor and hope is Christ, not man.
Dec 20, 202106:26
EP44: Show Up for the Good Fight

You cannot claim victory unless you’re present in the fight of your life — the fight to trust God for the present regardless of the raging winds, to live for a cause greater than life itself, to honour God with your life and to fulfil purpose.
Nov 18, 202104:51
EP43: Can We Stop Demonising Ambition?

EP43: Can We Stop Demonising Ambition?

Sep 05, 202104:30
EP39: Faith Grows in Unexpected Places

EP39: Faith Grows in Unexpected Places

We grow our faith when we step out into the ‘messiness’ of life, doing the ‘present’ while we trust and wait for God’s next move in our lives.
Aug 27, 202104:32
EP38: Greatness Series - Don't Settle for Mediocrity

EP38: Greatness Series - Don't Settle for Mediocrity

EP36: Grace Meets Works - Contending Against Two Extremes

EP36: Grace Meets Works - Contending Against Two Extremes

Christians are not justified before God because of our good deeds — rather, our good deeds are evidence of our justification by grace through faith. Grace and faith come before works. But neither can stand without the other.
Jul 26, 202108:31
EP35: Our Identity and Radical Purpose

EP35: Our Identity and Radical Purpose

EP25: Dear Pastors Series - Loyalty

EP25: Dear Pastors Series - Loyalty

May 05, 202105:21
EP24: Brothers, Pray For Us

EP24: Brothers, Pray For Us

Spiritual leadership is delicate. The expectation on the leader is huge. That’s why Paul pleaded — Brothers, pray for us — 1 Thessalonians 5:25. How we ought to heed the counsel with more seriousness.

EP21: What's In Your Hand?

EP21: What's In Your Hand?

Don't be a stats. Don't die with regrets at the end of your life. Don't live only to die 'full' — with unfulfilled potentials and purpose taken to the grave.

Like Moses, God is asking you today: "What's in your hand?"
