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

“Before the mountains were brought forth, before you had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God” Psalm 90:2

As human beings, we are used to things having a beginning and an end. We are born, we grow up and then we die. While the human heart never really gets used to the idea of death (because we were created to live forever), we do know that there is a time to start things and a time to wrap them up. Our tiny minds are so finite that we cannot possibly comprehend things that are beyond our existing paradygms.

God on the other hand, has been around forever. There has never been a time where He didn’t exist. Before the mountains were created, before the earth spun on its axis, God was. He was not born and He will not die. He is the everlasting God. He lives forever. While this thought might have a tendency to short circuit the wiring in our brain, may we ask God by the power of His Holy Spirit to help us comprehend His everlasting nature.

I believe that the more we can meditate on the amazing vastness of our God and Father, we will begin to realize that He created us to experience this eternal life with Him! And the eternal life that He wants us to live is really not a time continuum or a destination, but a relationship. In Jesus’ high priestly prayer in John 17:3, He describes eternal life like this…Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. (NIV)

WISDOM THAT WORKS
ALTERNATIVES – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“A good mans mind is filled with honest thoughts; an evil man s mind is crammed with lies. The wicked accuse; the godly defend. The wicked shall perish; the godly will stand”. Read: Proverbs 12:5-7
For every positive there is a negative and for every challenge that may come my way to act right and do right, I am always faced with alternatives.

Most of the issues that confront us we have already made our mind up about, because we have chosen to fill our minds with honest wholesome thoughts as opposed to letting our mind become the conduit for negative, and in some instances, evil insinuations.

As a small boy I must have been given lots of opportunity to choose what I wanted to do, even down to the point of whether l wanted jam or marmalade on my toast at breakfast. Sometimes my indecision would become frustrating to my parents and they would say something like, “Come on lad! Make your mind up”.

The choice is ours to ‘make our mind up’ about the disposition we adopt. Are we going to be truthful or liars? Are we going to accuse or defend? Are we going to stand for something or are we going to fall for anything. Come on folk – make your mind up!

What are some of the alternative choices that are going to face me today? More importantly, how am I going to respond?

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
John Quincy Adams

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.

Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
A FULL LIFE – Genesis 25: 1-10; Psalm 92

The final words with respect to this godly patriarch could not be better as he comes to the conclusion of his life. The Lord not only gave him a long life, it was a full one, blessed in every possible way. The Newberry Bible aptly describes the phrase, ‘full of years’, in a word, ‘satisfied.’ What a beautiful expression on a life lived by faith in and unto God! To sum up life in this way reveals that life had attained its goals and reached a state of absolute fulfilment.

In what ways was he satisfied? It is a good question to ask. He was satisfied in the experience of coming to know God and of developing a dynamic accord with Him through faith. Further, he had been blessed by God in so many aspects. God had made promises to him and brought them about, answered his prayers, met all his needs and protected at various times etc., etc. Going with God had turned out to be adventurous, exciting and truly satisfying.

The God that gave this man such a rich time of it can do the same for you. Your days, and that means everyday, can be filled with God and His goodness so that life is possessed with a divine satisfaction. If you live each day fulfilled, you will die satisfied. Enjoy the best on the way to the best.
