Posted by Stephen Birkett on

… My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations. Isaiah 56:7 The elation of Easter Sunday was quickly tempered by news of the tragic bombings in Sri Lanka – a stark reminder that we still live in a fallen world, as if we needed reminding so soon after the shocking...

Man’s Plan or God’s Plan

For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, “This man began to build and was not able to...

To Die For

Posted by Ka Wong on
