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

“But may the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you” – 1 Peter 5:10

Our destination is secure. We are called to God’s eternal glory, centered in Jesus Christ our Lord. No matter what life throws at us. No matter how uncertain the future gets, this is the bedrock of our hope. Eternal, unending, everlasting glory. No more pain. No more sickness. No more heartache. Just the weighty presence of our God and Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.

The NIV version of 1 Peter 5:10 says it this way… And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. (NIV) You will notice that this verse does talk about suffering because suffering is a consequence of the fallen world that we live in.

Though we may suffer now, we can take great comfort in knowing that our future is secure. We can set our hearts at rest knowing that the God of all grace will restore us, make us strong and be steadfast as we continue to walk towards the eternal glory that soon awaits us.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
HAVE FUN – Rev. Bob. Stevenson

“A fools fun is being bad; a wise mans fun is being wise”.

Read: Proverbs 10:23 Today’s proverb is terse and to the point. “A fool’s fun is being bad; a wise man’s fun is being wise.”

It never ceases to amaze me how some folks get their enjoyment. The whole gamut of entertainment pastimes and the various sporting codes are testament to this.

However, when it comes to having fun by being bad and doing bad things for the fun of it — this I find hard to accept. How on earth people can genuinely enjoy the buzz they get from seeing other human beings brutalized, ripped off, taken advantage of and emotionally destroyed is beyond me. But the harsh reality is that our daily newscasts on Radio and TV give us ample evidence that doing evil for the fun of it is very much alive and well.

Is there any antidote to such intrinsically evil attitudes which find enjoyment in being ad’? At the very least we can seek to influence our world’s foolishness by each one of us doing our part to disseminate God’s wisdom by every means at our disposal —

And at after all, life is for living so let’s enjoy it whilst we can! Hallelujah!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
MOVING ON

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself – Walter Anderson

To help yourself, you must be yourself. Be the best that you can be. When you make a mistake, learn from it, pick yourself up and move on – Dave Pelzer

It’s time to say goodbye, but I think goodbyes are sad and I’d much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure – Ernie Harwell

Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving forward – Maxwell Maltz

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
A TOKEN FOR GOOD – Genesis 9: 8-17; Psalm 86

The Lord realised that after a very rough and tough passage through the building of the ark, and then over a year’s stay in the ark, Noah needed some further assurance as to the future for himself and the rest of civilisation. Would such a thing ever occur again? Would there be another threat of this nature to destroy mankind? Could God be trusted not to judge the world of humanity in similar fashion? There did need to have some affirmation from God in order to give some confidence for the future. God in His love and wisdom knew this, and did something about it, and so created the rainbow as a permanent witness and token. Man must not be paralysed by fear every time it rained. This multicoloured bow represented God and His word on the matter. It was to be and is an expression for good.

David expressed himself on one occasion like this to the Lord. He said: “Show me a token for good . . . . .because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me” – Psalm 86: 17. There are occasions in our lives and situations when we do need the Lord to step in to manifest His grace in giving us a sign and evidence of His care, commitment and ability. Thankfully, He is willing to do this to prove that He loves us in great measure and that there is nothing He cannot do whatever the demanding circumstances. He is not limited to show both His heart and hand on your behalf.

In facing this day, you may require an intervention from the Lord to meet a particular circumstance. The Lord not only puts rainbows in the sky, He also places the rainbow of His love and power in your life giving covenant promise that He will answer all your need. Expect Him to turn up and demonstrate His help in His way!
