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

“Yahweh is good to all. His tender mercies are over all his works” – Psalm 145:9

The NLT says Psalm 145:9 this way… The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation. (NLT) What a loving Father we have! He is good and kind and compassionate to all that He has made! I have heard it said that God is the nicest person in the universe! Every day, He showers His compassion on us without many of us even aware of His tender mercies.

In the Garden of Eden, the serpent enticed Adam and Eve into questioning the goodness of God. In every day life, the enemy of our souls will try to do the same thing. “Is God really good?” “If He loved you why would you be suffering like you are?” etc. etc. I don’t know many things, but I do know that my God and Father is good! He is gentle and loving and full of mercy towards you and me.

If you ever question the goodness of God, just watch a sunrise or sunset. Look at how our Father feeds the birds of the air. How he pours out his rain in due season. He is indeed tender-hearted and is good to all that He has made! … And that includes us!

WISDOM THAT WORKS
LONGER DAYS  – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Reverence for God adds hours to each day, so how can the wicked expect a long, good life? The hope of good men is eternal happiness; the hopes of evil men are all in vain”.
Read: Proverbs 10:27-28

I think it is cute the way the Living Bible puts the first part of our proverb for today, “Reverence for God adds hours to each day”. — in other words — you get more out of life each day by having a healthy respect for God than if you treat the Lord with contempt.

I have come across certain individuals who seem to delight in deriding anything associated with a belief in God and even more seem to revel in ridiculing anyone who shows any respect or allegiance to the Jesus and God of the Bible.

It seems that the popular music scene is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to crossing the line of respect for God. They try to be as outrageous as possible in their defiance of anything sacred, even to the point of daring God to do something about it.

This kind of approach, if allowed to go unchecked, will have its spin off’s in other aspects of life, such as disrespect for authority in whatever form, and all the limitations that attitude imposes on an otherwise normal happy daily life.

No! Reverence for God is the starting point for a long, happy and satisfied life, not to mention more hours in the day to enjoy it!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
LIFE

Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced – Soren Kierkegaard

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated – Confucius

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years – Abraham Lincoln

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge – Bertrand Russell

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE

BECOMING A BLESSING – Genesis 12: 2; Ruth 4

It was quite a thing of importance for God to say to Abraham, I am going to make a great nation of you, to make your name great and to truly and greatly bless you, but God had something infinitely more in mind. He makes a real point with regard to his destiny – “you shall be made a blessing.” Whilst it is choice and a delight to experience the former factors the real purpose of life and living is to be directed at bringing blessing to others. God blesses us that He might bless others through us. Of course, as reflected in this ancient father, God revealed what He could do in pouring tremendous things into his being and household, but that was not the end product. Abraham himself as a person was to be blessed to inspire and quicken others in a dynamic way.

One has to become aware of the fact in and through God that His intention is to get through to us individually. He wants to make us realise that He is interested and committed to us as a person primarily. More than anything else, He desires and determines that we should blossom forth as a unique person with all the good, quality characteristics coming into being and that the inward potential should be fully released. In no way does He demean an individual but seeks to honour each one with the blessing of His presence, word and gifts. He desires that they will become someone and something so that they can make a great contribution to society.

Ruth seemed to be a non-entity, just a pagan woman living in Moab, yet she turns out to be a fantastic person because she came to place her trust in Israel’s God. She simply handed herself and her future into His hands. She found out how God could bless and make her a blessing. Because she was committed to this purpose of enriching other lives, she was enriched in so many ways. Not only did she wed a loving and rich husband, she was to enjoy motherhood and be an integral part of the Messianic line. Who knows what the Lord has lined up for you as you allow Him to bless and release you into a life of blessing! Ask the Lord today whom you can truly bless!
