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

“Your loving kindness, Yahweh, is in the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the skies” – Psalm 36: 5

How great is the love of God? Just look up in the sky. How faithful is our Father? Keep looking up. Look past the clouds and into outer space. Find the most powerful telescope on the planet and keep looking. We will never find an end to the love of God and we will never exhaust His faithfulness. Ever.

The human brain cannot comprehend such a vast supply of God’s goodness. That is why we need the power of His Spirit to grasp His love as Paul prayed in Ephesians 3:14-19…

14 For this cause, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that you may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be strengthened to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (WEB)

So today, I pray in agreement with the Apostle Paul’s prayer, that our God and Father will give us the power to grasp the vastness of His immeasureable love and faithfulness that stretches to the heavens and beyond. May ea

WISDOM THAT WORKS
ULTIMATE LOSS – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“God protects the upright but destroys the wicked. The good shall never lose God’s blessings, but the wicked shall lose everything”. Read: Proverbs 10:29-30 It is never a pleasant experience when you lose something, especially if the loss is really valuable to you. It doesn’t necessarily have be something of monetary value for there to some grief of heart and mind over such a loss. It can be something that is just irreplaceable terms of personal items, which may have what we call ‘sentimental value’.
We somehow manage to get over most of t losses we encounter, even the loss of a loved one in the passage of time. But the Bible talks about the possibility of losing everything, as well as the means to recovering it.
Of course I am referring to ultimate eternal loss Jesus spoke more about hell than He did about heaven and declared in the gravest terms the tragedy of a loss of everything so great that will have ongoing ramifications for eternity, not to mention the impact on our lives in the here and now.
On the other hand there is the most assuring of experiences that brings with it an inner confidence of never losing the blessing of God on one’s life.

The Bible says, “The blessing of the Lord makes rich and He adds no sorrow with it at all.” Be sure that ultimate wickedness doesn‘t rob you of everything — even an ultimate loss!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
COURAGE

Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death – Omr Bradley
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear – Nelson Mandella

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen – Winston Churchill

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along – Eleanor Roosevelt

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
DO NOT DECEIVE – Genesis 12: 9-20; Acts 5

We are somewhat shocked and staggered at times to discover moral and spiritual
weakness in someone we thought was good and of excellent character. Looking from afar at certain people in the Christian Faith, we are very much overcome and distraught when we find out some failure and flaw in them. It can be rather a soul-destroying factor and have an adverse affect upon our faith and relationship with God. This will inevitably occur at some time along the pathway and we ought not be too surprised and easily damaged. In this reading we are informed of a sad failure in one that God esteemed so much, Abraham.

“Having seen that Abram is a man of great faith, who trusted God enough to move to an unknown land, it comes as somewhat of a disappointment to learn that Abram can also be a man of moral weakness.” The Daily Bible – New Inter. Version

One would have thought this outstanding man of faith would not have slipped up here, but he did. He sought to deceive the king of Egypt with regard to his wife but was found out and rebuked by the monarch. It was a necessary rebuke to one called to represent and walk with God. Deception must not be part of his character and deeds. In the New Testament, two people tried to pull a fast one on God and Peter in terms of deception. They paid a severe price. To deceive is to lie and lying is not to be part of our nature and lifestyle – see Ephesians 4: 25.
