From the story in which Peter encountered the risen story I will look at ‘power to forgive’. Forgiveness as culture in God’s kingdom, as a necessity and release, restoration and reconciliation as result of forgiveness. The teaching of Jesus on forgiveness is radical and it’s certainly not easy to put into practice. It takes courage and humility. And yet it’s one of the most powerful steps we can take!
I am moving in my third message on ‘God at War’. In 4 messages I look at ‘the reality of evil’ from a biblical and kingdom perspective. And by doing so, I hope and pray that it will equip and empower us to take our position as Christians, in a world that is filled with evil.
Today I continue with our series ‘God at War’. From a biblical and Kingdom perspective I would like to look at ‘the reality of evil’.

As we celebrate St Valentine's Day, we will look at the story of Apostle Paul in Acts 9 after his encounter on the road to Damascus.
