What's your favourite meal or drink? I mean the real deal, original, nothing quite like it, warms your heart, meal or drink. As you read this blog, I want you to picture it, taste it! My favourite coffee in the world is an Aussie "flat white", from either Axil Coffee in Richmond, Australia, or "The … Continue reading Time To Turn On the Light.
Are you a Slave to Offense?
Are you a slave to offense? I have seen so many people hijack their lives, their ministries, their friends and their potential through offense. Someone ripped them off. They felt harshly dealt with by a boss. A colleague got greater attention than they. Their parents never paid them enough attention. God didn’t answer their prayer … Continue reading Are you a Slave to Offense?
God MUST Be Enough
Six years ago my wife and I found ourselves back in Australia after three years of church planting in America with no job, no ministry, and no solid home church. After Pastoring, Church Planting and seeing God move in mighty ways across America, we were suddenly “nobodies”. I was completely stripped away of all my … Continue reading God MUST Be Enough
Please Don’t Send Yourself to Hell
“Are you walking with Jesus?” I asked the gentleman sitting behind me. “I used to”, he replied, with a look of shame and struggle in his eyes. “I’ll walk with you if you want me to”, I offered. “You have to make the choice. It’s your choice and it’s up to you,” I affirmed. Michael … Continue reading Please Don’t Send Yourself to Hell
“Pray for Nero”- Ancient Wisdom for Present Day Christians
The division, criticism and vile abuse I've seen around social media lately has been nothing short of disturbing. The target of this abuse, more often than not, the government, leaders, and those in authority. Sadly, "Christians" have often been at the center of the conversations, slinging verbal mud at their elected officials and leaders as … Continue reading “Pray for Nero”- Ancient Wisdom for Present Day Christians

It was a clear day, as clear as the days get in a city fighting incredible levels of pollution. The streets were teeming with people, making the most of the tail end of the local religious holiday. I was talking with my friend about how I longed to see God's Kingdom come more and more … Continue reading Stories Across the Seas: S.E. Asia
Were they Real Angels that showed up at Christmas?
The Bible tells a story in the gospels, of angels appearing to shepherds and telling them about Jesus' birth. But were the angels real, or had the shepherds a little over tired and delirious after a long day herding sheep? I believe the angels were real. Really there, really big, and I dare suggest, really … Continue reading Were they Real Angels that showed up at Christmas?
Why do Some People get Healed and Not Others?
This is a big one. Theologically, emotionally, big. Healing is a "buzz word" for many Christians. Few things are as exciting as watching God supernaturally heal someone! In the same vein, few things as confusing or frustrating as the times when God doesn't heal someone. I get it. I've seen people miraculously healed in front … Continue reading Why do Some People get Healed and Not Others?
What’s with the “Gold Dust?”
One of the first things people ask me, when they hear I'm a fan of the supernatural operating in and through a Christian's life, is this, "What's with the "gold dust"?" (If you're not familiar with "gold dust", or you're just interested in seeing some- you can watch this video here, where I show some … Continue reading What’s with the “Gold Dust?”
Why the Supernatural?
I'm a big fan of the supernatural. Angels, Miracles and the Holy Spirit. Diseases healed. souls saved, the dead rising... supernaturally. Yes! I'm a big fan of the supernatural. But why? Because put plainly, the natural doesn't cut it. Last night I sat on a park bench next to a man who was a stranger … Continue reading Why the Supernatural?
