Have you ever been conned? Like you lost money in a way that you never saw coming?


Why do we get conned so easily? I know one of the reasons: we’re waiting for our big break! And when such opportunities present themselves, we think, “This is my chance!” We want to double our money, we look at “opportunities” presented to us and we think we’re about to make it! No more rat-race, I’m gonna be rich!

Many people believe in ‘the big break.’  – that one opportunity, that one contract, that dream job that could unlock all my dreams and make me rich. So we are always looking for that big break; we fill out the supermarket lotteries, we enter the promotions, we listen carefully to Continue reading

So imagine with me that you discover that one of your best friends from primary or high school has become a billionaire, and that when you meet them, your friend is so excited that they give you the opportunity to ask for one thing – whatever it is you want. You don’t know whether he’ll be available tomorrow, so here’s your big chance. What would you ask for? 


Last week we began a new series for the rest of this month called ‘Money Wise: Lessons From A Billionaire’. We want to learn some critical lessons about money from a billionaire’s perspective.

So last week, we looked at Continue reading

What’s one thing about your expenditure that would change if you really believed all your money belonged to God?


As much as I prefer not to speak about money, I realized that we are missing something as teachers of God’s word when we don’t, because the bible speaks a lot about money! If you’ve been coming to Mavuno for a while, then you know that Jesus spoke about money more than any other subject, except the kingdom of God! More than heaven and hell, and more than prayer and faith! Why? Because how we interact with money has huge impact on our relationship with God.

That’s why we often teach and talk about money at Mavuno. And this month, we want to learn some critical lessons about money from a billionaire Would you like to meet a real-life billionaire?

Today I want to introduce you to one! A man who makes Mayweather’s Continue reading

If you had the power and the position to change anything at work or in your neighborhood, what would you change?  

CSI HILL CITY homepageThis is the end of the series, Cross Scene Investigation. We started off by looking at the evidence for the resurrection of the Christ, we said Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Then we looked at the first character, Barabbas, the man who missed the cross and reminded us that Jesus became a substitution sacrifice for each one of us. We do not have to pay for sin. We can accept him and enjoy the blessing of freedom. We said Because He died, I can choose to live in freedom.

Thirdly we looked at Mary, the wounded follower. As we go through suffering, we are reminded that Because He endured the cross, he understands and cares when I endure mine. Last week, we looked at Peter, the man who denied Jesus. We looked at the limitation of compromise. We said that Because of the cross, I have a second chance.

Today we look at Continue reading

What is a thing you have done or said on the road or at work that surprised you about you – an ‘oops!’?

CSI HILL CITY homepage

I love God. Yes I do. And most of us would say so. But I have had my “what was that?” moment.

In fact, why you wake up on a Sunday morning and make your way to church is because something is alive in you. You want, or actually claim, to be a follower of the Cross. You sing songs that suggest that He is at the center of your life. That you would live for Him. ‘It is all about Him’, we sing!

But is it easy to dance to the tune of the song Monday to Monday?

Not in a country like ours, or a workplace like yours. Often we Continue reading

How do you deal with the heartaches in life?

CSI HILL CITY homepage

We started this series by looking at the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. We said that Because he lives, I can face tomorrow.Last week we looked at Barabbas, the man who missed his cross. We saw that Jesus took the cross for all of us, and that Because he died, I can choose to live in freedom. He became the Passover lamb so that he may release us from the limiting power of sin and disease. We wrote those imprisoning things and symbolically nailed them to the cross.

Today we look at a feminine character. The women were well Continue reading

Which is your favorite movie and why?

CSI HILL CITY homepage

I love action movies. I love it when the good guy wins and the bad guy loses! My latest favorite movie is Equalizer! Bad guys get beaten, an innocent girl is freed to be and do, and the rescuer becomes a hero. Action movies are mainly about an intervention to save a person or a situation.

We were designed for Good.

Created to live in Eden – that is why we love and long for order, beauty, nice lawns, beautiful oceans and fruitful gardens. No one falls in love with the desert unless he has no other choice. Continue reading
