Workers For The Harvest

By | Acts 2 DNA | No Comments

As a great leader, Jesus had already prepared the way for his disciples to follow. He left heaven to come and preach the good news. Then in Luke 9, Jesus sent his “A”Team” out to do likewise. They were like his spiritual special forces, having walked with him and trained with him. And now Luke 10 tells how it was…

Being Naturally Spiritual

By | Acts 2 DNA, SOAP Thoughts | No Comments

I was reading the other day and was challenged to be someone who others would look at and see as being naturally spiritual. Not kooky spiritual, but being a naturally spiritual person. The book said that often we go around looking for people who are open to us and receptive to a spiritual message, when in fact if we are…

Be Fruitful and Multiply

By | Acts 2 DNA, SOAP Thoughts | No Comments

God isn’t into addition; He’s into multiplication. As I was journalling today I came across Genesis 9:7 which said. “…be fruitful and multiply, increase greatly on the earth and multiply in it.” (ESV) This was the third time that the call to be fruitful and multiply was contained in Genesis (also 1:28 and 6:1). It wasn’t just a one off statement…

Time To Review and Recalibrate

By | Acts 2 DNA | No Comments

Often we do what we have done in the past, and tinker with it, trying to improve in what we do and how we do it. That’s just human nature if we want to see improvements. That’s great, if what we are doing is working and we are seeking improved results from improving our performance, but what if what we…

The Choice To Obey

By | Acts 2 DNA | No Comments

Most of us probably know something about the age old battle in the Garden of Eden between good and evil the consequences of which are still being felt today. God had provided for Adam and Eve saying… “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall…

Will You Pray With Me

By | Acts 2 DNA | No Comments

We all know people who don’t know truly Jesus. Perhaps its a parent, or a workmate, someone we ago to school with or the person at the local shop. Or perhaps it’s someone we truly call friend. The most precious gift I have ever received was the grace that I received when I received Jesus. I received His forgiveness and…

How To Avoid Frustration

By | Acts 2 DNA, Leadership | No Comments

Many in church leadership get plagued by frustration, which is often accompanied soon after by discouragement when the fruit that we expect to see doesn’t materialise. In fact it’s not just “leaders” who experience this, but anyone who wants something better for another person; that your friend will be receptive to the good news, that they will finally decide to…

Getting the Good News Out

By | Acts 2 DNA | No Comments

There’s an amazing picture of the early church in Acts chapter 5 that raises some interesting questions for us today. It was a miraculous time, with a passion for Jesus, the joy of salvation and the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit all being amazingly evident. Right in the middle of this beautiful passage, we read that “No one else…

Salt-

Out of the salt shaker

By | Acts 2 DNA | No Comments

Did you know that people who say that they follow Jesus are meant to make a difference? In fact Jesus refers to His followers as being like salt. Salt has many uses. It can be used as a preservative, for seasoning or even as a fertiliser. And did you know that by adding salt to a manure pile, you can…
