You have probably heard about the situation in Kenya through the news and we would urge you to pray for the peace of this nation. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who has asked after us and prayed for us over the last couple of weeks. We are very conscious of the insecurity around our ministry at the moment but we are in good spirits.
We would also like to highlight something that did not feature in news reports and that is the spiritual conditions that prevail here in Kenya.
Welcome to our last devotional of the week. It’s also the last devotional that I will be publishing four the next five weeks as we are travelling to the UK. Today I want to talk about surrendering to the word of God.
Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God. (John 8:47, ESV)
OK, this is an oldie and I’ve recommended it before but it is one of my favourite books on house church.
If you have an interest in house church then it’s well worth the read. Another reason that I decided to post this today is that it’s available on amazon.com for just a few cents.

What a privilege to be called a son of God and what a great inheritance we have.
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever”. (John 8:34–35, ESV)
“You become like what you worship. When you gaze in awe, admiration, and wonder at something or someone, you begin to take on something of the character of the object of your worship.”
