PUB RESTORED INTO A CHURCH - Salem Danville, Pretoria, South Africa


Salem Danville's first service was under a carport on the 1st of March 2009 with 6 people. We started because the people of Danville spoke a need of a Biblical, relevant and alive church.

In December of 2009 we took over an old pub in Danville and renovated it into our church - a miracle done by God! Today we minister to about 100 people, 30 teenagers and 60 children.
Danville is a poor area in Pretoria West, South Africa - unique in a sense that there is poor people of all cultures and races.

Our vision - to bring His Peace and restoration to the people of Danville. To show them that your circumstances do not dictate God's love for you. Jesus loves all, no matter who you are, what you've done, or how much money you have!

Share the joy of ministering to the poor with us in this blog!

Bull’s eye reward

On the 5th of July I wrote on sinning without doing something wrong. I continued to ponder on this subject and God pressed it on my heart to preach on this subject this past Sunday. God’s Spirit moved so much in people’s hearts, that I want to share it with you…

Let’s start with the question: what is your definition of sin? Something you do wrong, disobeying the commandments…?

The Bible shows us that sin is not only what you do wrong, but sin is also when God stirs your spirit to do something, but you keep on ignoring His voice. For instance like giving a Word to someone, praying for someone, giving bread to your neighbor…

The Greek word for this sin is “hamartano” which means to miss the mark. The Strong’s however add some more meaning to this Greek word – not only to miss the mark, but also not sharing in the prize!

You see – when we as Christian’s sin - doing what is wrong, the consequences is God’s discipline. When we however commit the sin of “hamartano” – He will not discipline us, but we will miss the prize, the reward He wants to bless us with if we are obedient!

If you are obedient in what He asks you to give, then the reward is a harvest. If you are obedient in giving a word to someone, the fulfillment is seeing the change in someone’s life.

It is like a person shooting with an arrow – if he misses the mark, there is no prize. If he shoots the bull’s eye, there is a prize.

Listen today to your Master, where He asks you to aim, then shoot a bull’s eye, and receive a heavenly reward!
