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

“Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need” – Heb 4:16

We have an invitation from our God and Father to come boldly before His throne of grace today. In the book of Revelation, we read a little bit about what God’s throne room is like in chapter 4… Angels crying holy, holy holy, flashes of lightning, 24 elders bowing down, a sea of glass, and so much more! It is a holy place where angels fear to tread, but a place in our Father’s heart where we have free access to enter as His beloved little ones.

You can come into His presence right now if you like. His royal doors are always open to you, anytime, day or night. God wants each one of us to come to Him boldly, not timidly. He loves it when we climb up on His lap just as a little child would jump into his dad’s arms. He is always there for us ready to provide the mercy and grace to help us in our time of need.

There is no way that we can fathom the privilege that God has extended to us by inviting us to His throne of grace. It is an honor that could have only been purchased by the highest price possible…the shed blood of the Lamb of God. Thank you Jesus for making the way for us to become part of your family so that we could come boldly before our Father’s throne of grace 24/7!

WISDOM THAT WORKS
NATIONAL LEADERSHIP
Rev. Bob Stevenson

”Without wise leadership, a nation is in trouble; but with good counsellors there is safety”.

Read: Proverbs 11:114.

Somebody has said that leadership is influence. Of course there are other dynamics associated with leadership but essentially leadership is the power of influence.

Power to influence the Cabinet of the government you preside over, with all the individual agendas that may be lurking beneath the surface. In today’s world of parliamentary leadership, there is the necessary power to influence the media so as to be sure you get the right message portrayed to the public at large, because that is where the influence really counts, at the ballot box.

Then there is the need to convince your own political party that you, as their leader, have the required wisdom to understand what the nation as a whole stands most in need of. Not only those of your own political persuasion but the ordinary Joe Blog in the street who relies on you to make his existence as rewarding as is possible, within the budgetary limits placed upon you.

Happy is the nation who have wise leaders and good counsellors – they can truly dwell in safety. If this is therefore the case, how important it is for us to pray for those in authority. If leadership is influence then prayer too can be a powerful influence in supporting those who lead us.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
RESPECT

I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me… All I ask is that you respect me as a human being – Jackie Robinson

A person’s a person, no matter how small – Dr. Seuss

Respect yourself if you would have others respect you – Baltasar Gracian

Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself – Abraham Joshua Heschel

We don’t need to share the same opinions as others, but we need to be respectful – Taylor Swift

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
GIVEN TO HOSPITALITY – Genesis 18:1-8; Hebrews 13:2

One of the vital ministries in life is to show kindness to others and it is possible to do this by opening up our homes to others in providing a meal and accommodation. It is a choice and right thing to be given to hospitality. We are counselled in Galatians 6: 10 “to do good to all men, especially to them who are of the household of faith.” It should become both a principle and procedure so that others behold the example that is set and do likewise.

Three men were apparently passing by Abraham’s path and immediately he seeks to express concern for their natural well being. Within a moment he made them welcome and invited them to stay for a meal. In that provision he made certain that he gave them the best by putting on a fantastic table for the men to feast at. He did not know initially that one was the Lord whilst the other two were angels. That was to be a later discovery. He must have been very glad later to find this to be the case. Abraham’s disposition was to see what good he could do for others and he was committed to sharing his goods.

Today is a new day: why not share your home with others and take time to provide a meal. Develop this lovely trait as it says in Romans 12: 13 “Distributing to the necessities of the saints; given to hospitality.” Who knows? You may entertain the Lord and angels unawares! Be assured, that this being the case, they will leave an untold benediction behind that far outweighs the welcome given and the meal supplied! Open out to others and the Lord and others will open out to you.
