Text: Acts 6:1-15. The common sharing of the Church in chapter 4-5 became a problem in chapter 6 (vv.1-4). This shows that such sharing was not intended to be a permanent feature for all generations but only for that very early group. But in God’s providence the dispute was designed for the development of the[…]

Text: Acts 5:1-42. The last part of chapter 4 teaches about the devotion of the new church to one another (vv. 1-4). People were even selling their properties and distributing the money among the believers who were in need. Ananias and Sapphira also sold property. They kept some of the money (which is fine), but[…]

Text: Acts 4:1-37. In this chapter we see the beginnings of opposition to the Church of Jesus (vv.1-4, 12). Opposition to God and His people has always existed (ever since Satan attacked Adam, Cain killed Abel, Egypt enslaved Israel, etc.) but here opposition rises against the newly born Church. Jesus promised it (John15:20). Interestingly, the[…]

Text: Acts 3:1-26. It’s important to notice that this miraculous healing took place at the temple (vv.1-8, 16). Even though God was doing something new, it started first with His people – Israel, right at their place of worship. For 1,000 years the temple was the place that symbolised God’s forgiving grace. The animals that[…]

Tukutendereza Yesu! The out powering of the Spirit on the People of God [commonly referred to as Pentecost Sunday] was marked on the 20th May 2018 in all the four (4) Services at the Cathedral. The Preacher pointed out that on Pentecost Sunday, Christians worldwide are reminded and also celebrate the Gift of the Holy[…]

Good morning Saints. I hope that you had a good week; because this week that had apparently been a fruitful week in many ways, at least for me, ended on a very sad note, with Prof. Muhwezi, our parishioner, losing his dear wife, Sarlome Kyatuheire Muhwezi, in a road accident. Only last year, their son[…]

Text: Acts 2:1-47. This chapter has caused a lot of division among Christians. Those who call themselves “Pentecostals” have a certain understanding and application of “tongues” which may be incorrect (4-8,11b, 32-33, 42). What the Bible means by tongues is “known human languages that were not known by the speakers but were understood by the listeners” (2:7-8). Tongues are[…]

Text: Acts 1:1-26. The book of Acts is written by Luke, the same man who wrote the Gospel we call “Luke”. Though this book is often called The Book of the Acts of the Apostles (which it is), verse 1 tells us that Acts is actually the continuing work of Jesus Christ (vv. 4-5,8). It is also important[…]

Text: Esther 10:1-3. Mordecai was once a man who stood at, and could not be allowed beyond the gate, God raised him up to become second in command of the vast Persian Empire (8:9). The secret was; he honoured God, he maintained he was of a Jewish identity even when it meant his death (3:4). Mordecai was great because[…]
