We have a multi-purpose vehicle that we call “The Great White” (because it’s white and it’s a great car). It’s powerful enough to tow a house, seats fold in to become a Bakkie, warns you when you’re exceeding the speed limit AND is a fuel fairy – all this packaged in an ordinary looking station wagon.

“When the Council saw the boldness of Peter and John, and could see that they were obviously uneducated non-professionals, they were amazed and realised what being with Jesus had done for them!” Acts 4:13 (

When you get close to Jesus, He rubs off on you. You become ruined for the ordinary, developing a likeness to Him.



God Knows You

Lol did you know that some of our hair falls out every day? (someone fact check that haha, I heard/read that somewhere) How many hairs do you think you have on your head? Do you know yourself that well? My mommy always tells me that she knows me better than I know myself.

Let me tell you, God knows me better than my mommy. Our Father God knows everything about us, more than we know about ourselves because He knows us completely!

Luke 12:7 (
God sees us and God knows us fully, all of us and He still loves us.




We had a little black Golfie called “The Bat” (it looked like the Bat Mobile). A few boys were admiring The Bat very closely. I stood behind them a said “SHIELDS!” (and secretly pressed the locking system). The space-age door locks engaged with loud thuds that gave the lads a groot skrik. Street cred achieved.

One of the defining characteristics of our God is that He is an impenetrable surrounding shield if we trust in Him. “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold” Psalm 18:2 (




My wife and I are cycling partners. We had a tandem road bike called “The Bull” (it had the colours of a Red Bull can). The best thing about it was speed. When we were in sync, in harmony, we could reach speeds over 90km/h. What a sweet-sweet symphony.

Similarly, we were not meant to live this Christ-following life mucking about on our own. We’re designed to live and move and have our being in tandem with the Holy Spirit. We’re rubbish on our own – but in sync with the Spirit, what a sweet-sweet symphony.

Read Galatians 5:25 (
