Daily Verse – 1 Peter 3:15

The word which jumps out in this verse, when you read the Greek Interlinear version, is that ‘answer’ is written as ‘defence’. We are to always be ready to give a defence of the hope we have in Christ. The word for ‘defence’ in Greek is apologian and only occurs in the New Testament 3Continue reading “Daily Verse – 1 Peter 3:15”

Verse of the Day: Romans 8:1

In this verse the Apostle Paul uses the Greek work katakrima for the word condemnation. He tells us there is no condemnation – no penalty, no punishment or penal servitude following from a condemning. There are only two other usages of katakrima besides this one in the New Testament and both occur in Romans 5:16Continue reading “Verse of the Day: Romans 8:1”

I’ve Been Kondo’d!

Studying martial arts from a young age taught me not underestimate the small person – for most of the time I was that small person.  Lifestyle, tidying, de-cluttering guru, Marie Kondo is definitely one of those opponents you should be wary of.

Day 463 – Sunday Reflection.

I’ve been busy revamping my study. Basically, I’ve got rid of more stuff I had forgotten I even had, or had kept because it might be useful at some point. I decided that some point had been reached and that the stuff wasn’t useful after all. A family desk taken by my eldest son, freedContinue reading “Day 463 – Sunday Reflection.”

23 Days in July 2019 – Le Tour – Stage 15.

Predications all turned upside down, commentators and pundits changing their minds quicker than the pedals are turning on those race bikes and the Tour enters its last stage before the final rest day and the last five combative stages before the final processional stage into Paris. Life changes as quickly as events in a GrandContinue reading “23 Days in July 2019 – Le Tour – Stage 15.”

Day 436 – Sunday Reflection.

Style. I re-watched the movie The Thomas Crown Affair the other night and Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway clearly had style, in both their personalities and their fashion. Creatively, I think we spend a long time trying to find our ‘style’. Early works are often composites of our favourite writers/artists/musicians, as we learn new techniquesContinue reading “Day 436 – Sunday Reflection.”
