WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 130,000 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 Golden Promise from the Scriptures, Wisdom that Works by Bob Stevenson, Choice Quotations and daily Meditations, working through the whole Bible. something to focus your mind on are included that can be developed more fully by you. I trust you will find such refreshing and helpful.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“Or don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you,  which you have from God? You are not your own” – 1 Cor 6; 19

God’s Holy Spirit is the very core of His being, just like our spirit is the very essence of our existence. It is amazing to think that He has entrusted us with His precious Holy Spirit. It amazes me to think that we could be the resting place for the living God.

Today’s promise tells us that we belong to God and He delights to rest upon us. In the Old Testament, we read about the Holy Spirit coming upon people at certain times, but in the New Testament there is a whole new level of interaction with the Holy Spirit that we have a privilege of knowing. He lives in us. In John 14:23, Jesus said that not only will the Holy Spirit live in us, but Jesus and the Father would too!

There is no greater honour that we could receive other than to be the temple of the living God. I pray that each and every one of us would take a moment right now and thank God for trusting us with His presence. May we never take His indwelling for granted!

WISDOM THAT WORKS
MONEY WELL SPENT – Rev. Bob. Stevenson

“The rich mans wealth is his only strength. The poor man’s poverty is his only curse. The good mans earnings advance the cause of righteousness. The evil man squanders his on sin”.

Read: Proverbs: 10:15-16

l have come across quite a few colourful characters in my lifetime, not the least being a Derbyshire man by the name of Sam Froggat. Sam was the most generous and likeable man you could ever wish to meet. I could fill a whole chapter with all the many deeds of kindness he would engage in, but the one l have selected so vividly illustrates this proverb.

When Sam retired from the workforce he took on a part time position as a handy man for a local chemical factory. His age pension took care of his daily needs so all the money he earned from his part time job was sent to support missionaries and disadvantaged orphan children in the third world. Sam’s material needs were very basic in every respect and he was never wasteful or extravagant.

Sam has been in the story as a living illustration of years now but his works are following him as I recount his righteousness with his earnings. May the Lord help us all to be good stewards of the resources God has given us and be to give a generous portion to advance the cause of good in the world.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
GOODNESS

Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people – Dennis Prager

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing – Edmund Burke

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people – Martin Luther King – Jr.

It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it – Benjamin Franklin

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE

WALKING WITH GOD – Genesis 5: 19-32; Hebrews 11: 5

This is the thing that is high on the agenda of the Lord. He is seeking for men and women who will walk with Him. Walking is symbolic of a conduct that is revealed in a friendship and fellowship, and God is seeking and reaching out for people who are ready to be brought into a close communion with Himself because He has so much to say that will benefit in every way. It means being lifted on to a new and higher level of life and inspiration. This changes a person’s focus and direction.

Enoch came to know the reality of God at 65 years of age and from that time developed a personal and meaningful relationship with Him. This became top priority with him. The thing that mattered above all else and influenced his life in his thinking, attitudes and deeds sprang out of this dynamic union. God became the centre and circumference and from this stemmed a life and work that pleased God in every way. This was his daily devotion: walking with God. And it lasted over a long period – 300 years, and then he went for an eternal walk with God and he is still on it!

Cultivate the art today of opening up all your life and affairs to God and He will raise you into a vibrant fellowship with Himself that will bear fruit now in so many ways. He will touch every aspect of your life with His presence, power, grace and words so that you will welcome each new day as an opportunity for Him to furnish your being with all that is divine and worthwhile. Seek to get as close as you can to Him so that the maximum input from Him will be yours. Learn to journey with Him!
