WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 128,000 people have visited it since 2006. On the left hand side of the introductory page is a host of subjects and material that have been placed during this time and is there for your interest, study and perusal.

I feel it is time and right to change the format and to present day by day something a little simpler and trust will benefit and bless those who visit it. It will consist of a Prophetic Word for Today, A Golden Promise from the Scriptures, Just a Thought by Aaron Linford. Choice Quotationsand a miniature message from the Psalms that can be developed more fully by you. I trust you will find such refreshing and helpful

A PROPHETIC WORD FOR YOU

Be constantly open in your mind and heart towards the Lord and His Word and He will not fail to give you the information and instruction you require daily to guide and bless in everything. He has eternally had your being and welfare at heart and only thinks and works to bring about the best in and through you so that you have great cause of thanksgiving and into a growing knowledge of Him. He will re-dress the situation and lovingly bring you back on track when you wander and do so without bitterness. So trust Him to outwork all the details and He will surely bring to fruition all those factors that will enhance your person and advance your usefulness. In wholesome partnership with Him you will be blessed and see things of a beautiful quality brought to pass. He is your GUIDE today!

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness,
for they shall be filled” – Matthew 5:6 (WEB)
When a person is hungry or thirsty in the natural, they are aware that they have an emptiness that needs to be filled and they will look for opportunities to meet that need. For example…Nothing tastes better than a tall glass of chilled water when you are thirsty, or a roasted turkey dinner when you are famished. However, if you try to offer a person an all-you-can-eat buffet after they have just finished eating, then they will probably politely decline.

I think it works the same way in our spiritual life. When we are thirsty for the things of God, all our spiritual senses are open to pursue the things that will quench our thirst. I know in our ministry travels, my wife and I meet a lot of spiritually hungry people. I believe that this hunger stirs up people’s expectations which creates at atmosphere of faith in the room. I enjoy speaking in these types of meetings the best!

However, being hungry can feel frustrating at times. Instead of feeling the satisfaction of being full, a person is left in a place where they are still longing for more. The longer a person is in that place, the more frustrated they can feel. After all, no one likes to be hungry for long periods of time.

JUST A THOUGHT by Aaron Linfrd
THE BODY OF CHRIST

We must draw a distinction between “the days of His flesh” (Heb 5:7) when Christ lived on earth, and the days of His heavenly session. In His earthly body He travelled far, laboured much and suffered intensely – and all for us.
Now He has a spiritual body, the Church (Eph 1:23) into.which and through which He pours His fullness. What He “began both to do and teach” (Acts 1:1) He continues, and will continue through His people to the end of time.

St. Teresa of Avila (AD 1515-82) puts it well thus: “Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours; yours are the eyes through which is to look out Christ’s compassion to the would, yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good, and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.”

Is this what Paul had in mind when he exhorts us to “present your bodies a living sacrifice . . . unto God”? (Rom 12:1) Why present our bodies and not our souls? The body is the active agent by which God’s will may be done, the living vehicle by which He may fulfil His wishes toward men, the vessel of clay that may bear the water of life to the world.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS

“There can be no greater argument to a man of his own power than to find himself able not only to accomplish his own desires, but also to assist other men in theirs; and this is that conception wherein consisteth charity” -Hobbes

“As the purse is emptied the heart is filled” – Hugo

“We have made the slogan “Charity begins at home” a part of our religion-although it . . . is directly contrary to the story of the Good Samaritan. Charity begins where the need is greatest and the crisis is most dangerous” -Laubach

FOCUS – SOMETHING TO REALLY THINK ABOUT
T.Addington
JOINT VENTURE (PART TWO)

If one falls down, his friiend can help him up” – Ecclesiastes 4:10
Partnership is a great idea-—unless it doesn’t work. Then it seems like a terrible idea. If you want a partner—someone to genuinely share the workload—then you can’t engineer the relationship to look like two sole proprietors working in tandem. It can’t be the kind of arrangement in which, despite the fact that “partnership” is the title on the front door, the individuals inside are working for themselves and simply sharing overhead.

Partnership means you have to give up certain perks of being a lone ranger in order to gain the benefits of joint synergy. Synergy is not something that comes naturally or easily. Synergy means that you share the decision-making as well as the spotlight. Partnership means that you keep your ego under control. A joint venture means that you give credit where it is due and take blame where necessary. A great working definition of a productive partnership is when all involved feel as if a burden is being jointly carried.

You know you are involved in a bad partnership when you feel as if you are doing much or all of the work, while the others involved are getting a free ride on your shoulders. A good partnership is something that you will never trade in. As Solomon says, “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken” (Ecclesiastes 4:12).
Would you like a little help with the part of work that causes stress and sweat? Investigate the power of partnership.
