Chosen: To Be Loved And To Love

I find it absolutely incredible that God didn’t choose us randomly. Jesus says in John (15:16, ICB): “You did not choose Me. I chose you.”  It’s not about luck.

Christmas Is a Rescue Story

“Soul felt its worth.” A stunning line from ‘O Holy Night’, easily missed amongst the crescendos of a beautifully written song. The Nativity – a picture of Jesus’ miraculous birth and God’s love for us. This too can easily be missed during the festive season. We do our best to turn our attention to Jesus.…
