The meaning of life

I don’t know if you read the Word4U2day daily devotionals. (If you don’t, I would highly recommend either them or the more ‘grown-up’ The Word for Today – both are the same basic material, with the Word4U2day version put into more modern, relevant language, and both are freely available on the UCB website or if…

Do it anyway

I came across this pretty class pledge that is attributed to Mother Teresa that is a great model for us to follow as we strive to live all4God. (There is some debate over whether she actually wrote it, or it was just up on her wall) People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.…

Love to live for

“Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised…

The dare of Jesus

Do not be defeated by the darkness in this world It weighs upon my soul It blackens my heart Despair hangs on every tree, on every lowly lampost, on every worker’s head. So raise high the banner of hope, and its never fading love You, not of this world, do not shelter under the blanket…

Facebook4God

This is the first in a new recurring series of short articles focusing on taking everyday activities and showing how we can use them for God, how we can use them to share our faith. After all, in Colossians 3:17 Paul says “And whatever you do or say, let it be as a representative of…

The Porpoise Driven Life

You may have heard of popular Christian teaching book The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. Maybe you’ve even read it (if you haven’t, I would recommend it!). But have you ever heard of the Porpoise Driven Life? Watch the video to be enlightened. The first minute or so is satire on Christian fads, but…

Wisdom and the Word

“Since a dull axe requires great strength, sharpen the blade. That’s the value of wisdom; it helps you succeed.” Ecclesiastes 10:10 We need to be constantly sharpening our wisdom by spending time in God’s Word, listening to people explaining it and meditating on it so that when the time comes to need to apply it…

The Vision

The Vision is a prayer/poem written by Pete Greig, founder of 24-7 prayer. Here’s a video of it with some pretty class visuals for you to watch and enjoy (and hopefully be spoken to through!) [HTML1] Follow @All4God

Where would Jesus be?

A few years ago it used to be fashionable to wear those ‘What would Jesus do?’ bracelets. But maybe the question we need to ask ourselves more these days is not what He would do, but where He would be doing it. Because as Christians we have a tendency to form our little ‘holy-huddles’, seeking…

Wonderful Privilege

   Ephesians 3:7 "By God’s special favour and mighty power I have been given the wonderful privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News." That is Paul, writing to the Ephesians. Note how he describes his calling to spread the Good News (a calling that is made to all of us in the Great…
