  The Bride’s journey is not a journey to somewhere.  It’s a journey into Someone.  Her goal is communion with the Father, by means of the Spirit, through oneness with Christ the Bridegroom.  Her destination is nothing less than Christ's fullness (Eph. 4:13).

The Hunger for Righteousness

It is written that Jesus Christ was acquainted with grief.  The grief He became acquainted with comes to every one of His followers who hunger and thirst after righteousness.  At the time He walked in this fallen world He was the most righteous human being on the face of the earth.  As we, His Bridal … Continue reading The Hunger for Righteousness

Sleeping with the Light On

Darkness can be a deceptive thing.  You may be out walking, or busy with some important task, and suddenly you look around to find darkness is descending on you much faster than you had expected.  Spiritual darkness has the same quality.  While we’re distracted elsewhere, it creeps up on us, subtly invading every aspect of … Continue reading Sleeping with the Light On

In the Company of Fools

Atheism is popular right now.  Being offended at Christianity, and in particular ‘born again’ Christians, is becoming topical among many authors, intellectuals, journalists and social commentators.  Around us a chorus of disbelieving mockery grows increasingly influential as the offended voices of atheists grow louder and angrier by the day.  The Western world is seemingly separating … Continue reading In the Company of Fools

The Lady at Number 31

When did I first notice her? I don’t really recall. I’m sure there was an initial meeting, but thinking back she seemed to be always hanging around in the background even before I became aware of her. As time went on she would suddenly turn up, intrusively, when I was least expecting her..... during coffee … Continue reading The Lady at Number 31
