Looking Forward

Top image forwardAt the end of each year, many folk like to look back and review the year, but I prefer to be looking forward to the year ahead. The events of 2019 are now fixed in history and there is nothing I can do with them except learn and adjust. But 2020 is history still to be written and each of us has a pen with which to write.

Trying to predict the future is an essentially futile endeavour, for no one but God knows what is yet to come. But what I, and you, can do is look to The Lord with hope and faith for the year before us. With this in mind, I offer you the two passages of scripture that are before me today.

Ephesians 5:15-17 ‘ Be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is’.
Psalm 25:1-2, 4-5  “To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;  in you I trust, O my God… Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Saviour, and my hope is in you all day long”.
One of my hopes for 2020 is that we would see a genuine Jesus-centred Holy Spirit revival sweep through our land. If you would like to find out more about the why, what and how of Revival then just click on the link below for my free book on this subject.

May the Lord bless us, keep us, and make His face shine on us in 2020.

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
