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

“for he says, “At an acceptable time I listened to you, in a day of salvation I helped you.” Behold, now is the acceptable time. Behold, now is the day of salvation” – 2 Cor 6:2

The New Living Translation Bible translates 2 Corinthians 6:2 this way… For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation. (NLT)

In Isaiah 61, the prophetic declaration of God’s good news says that we are to proclaim the Year of the Lord’s Favour. Adding to that, in 2 Corinthians 6:2, the Apostle Paul says that today is the day of salvation. Both scriptural references are now words. Words for today. Not tomorrow. Not next year. Today.

Today is the day of salvation. Right now we are living in the year of the Lord’s favour. May the immediacy of this promise impact your heart right NOW. My prayer is that faith would rise up in our hearts so that we would be able to appropriate the promises God has made for us right now. Today is the day of salvation!

WISDOM THAT WORKS
TALK-TALK-TALK – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Those who plot evil shall wander away and be lost, but those who plan good shall be granted mercy and quietness. Work brings profit; talk bring poverty Wise men are praised for their wisdom; fools are despised for their folly”.

Read: Proverbs 14:22-24

I like the King James Version translation of this proverb which goes like this, ‘In all LABOUR there is profit but the talk of the lips tends only to penury’. However, whether it’s the King James Version or the Living Bible Translation, the message is the same, Don’t just talk about doing something -get it done!

How nauseating are those folk who always seem to be talking about what they intend to do someday soon, but alas it is all talk, talk, talk. inevitably these characters never succeed at anything and seldom finish what they start out to do.

You see LABOUR implies effort of some sort or another. My observation of those who are only talkers is that they are usually just sitting around waiting for something to happen, rather than making something happen! Then there is this other word for poverty in the King James Version — PENURY. This is not just to be poor, but to have a disposition of miserly tightfistedness which robs you of the chance to have a go at anything.

We need not only to TALK the TALK but to WALK the WALK!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
WISDOM

Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful – John Wooden

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment – Jim Rohn

We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future – George Bernard Shaw

A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them – John C. Maxwell

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
VISITATION MINISTRY – Genesis 48

News reached Joseph that Jacob was not very well and he took time out immediately to go and see him. It was at a time when he was busily engaged in the interests of the kingdom and he could have opted not to go. But he had his dear father in great respect. On this occasion he took his two sons with him also to let them gather something from this godly patriarch. When Jacob heard that he had come, he drew on extra strength to make the occasion memorable.

Jacob knew he could talk freely with this son on a spiritual basis and so shared some of his testimony to God’s workings in his life and blessing – vv3, 4. Although he had been greatly advanced and promoted, Joseph never lost sight of the more important divine values and assets. His mind and heart was open to those things that related to the future for God’s elect family. He must have been thrilled at the prospects held in relation to his sons in it all. This visitation of his infirm father was turning out to be quite a revelation There was also to be the special blessing conferred on his sons – vv13-16.

Who knows when you make it your concern and business to go visiting the sick what will occur, especially when those being visited are in touch with God? Whilst you may go to bless them, you could come away with a greater blessing and revelation from God. There is a loving task for you to be able to do for others and as you go with good will and God’s blessing you will be used by Him in special ways. Do not neglect the opportunity of the moment.
