Posted in Mavuno Sermons with tags , , , , on May 3, 2015 by mavunite

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


CSI – Peter

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

League of ExtraOrdinary Gentlemen – Warrior

Posted in Mavuno Sermons with tags , , , on October 12, 2014 by mavunite

What does it mean to be a tender warrior?


Last week we began talking about the king in a man. That’s why we breathe respect. Because, there is a king in every man and you want to be able to do the right thing. We talked about the characteristics of a king, as a selfless man of integrity to the core. We talked about the functions of a king, about provision. We said every man should go home and play the man as a king who cares deeply as a servant king. Our text from scripture for this sermon is 1 Kings 2:2

David is charging his son Solomon who has Continue reading

T.G.I.F. – Thank God It’s Monday (TGIM)

Posted in Mavuno Sermons with tags , , , , , on February 23, 2014 by mavunite


Everyone in life wants to leave an impact behind. That is why we love heroes – they step into situations in life and something changes for the better. President Obama won his first term in office on the theme of change. Yes we can!  It resonated with masses across the world. We want to see things change. In politics, in education, in the media, in business: where we work and the different sectors of society.

To sign in for change, we must hate the status quo. We must envision the possibilities.

As we conclude this series, we want to talk about Continue reading

T.G.I.F. – Power Play

Posted in Mavuno Sermons with tags , , , , , , , on February 16, 2014 by mavunite


People play power games in the marketplace to get promoted or obtain some benefits. Others play the games because they can; they have the power. Some of those games are evil and dangerous. These power plays are based on the philosophy of zero-sum game where the winner takes it all.

Everyone wants to be upwardly mobile. Everyone who puts in a tender wants to be the one to get it. Everyone wants his/her client account to Continue reading
