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

“Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” – 1 Cor 13:4-7

The Greek word for love used in this passage of Scripture is the word agape which speaks of the unconditional love of God. Today’s promise speaks of the tenacious heart of our Father that will simply not give up on us no matter what we go through.

God’s love is relentless and consistent. His love for us does not change like shifting shadows, but will persevere through every circumstance. His love will always protect us, His love will always trust, His love will always believe the best about every situation and His love will always stay true. This is the love that God has for us.

It is not like any love that we have experienced on earth. Even the love from the best father, mother, brother, sister, friend, spouse, etc. would only be a shadow of the unconditional, everlasting love that God has for us. My prayer today is that we would have power to grasp the vastness of the immeasureable love that God has for us as the Apostle Paul prayed in Ephesians 3:14-19…

WISDOM THAT WORKS
TEACHERS AND TEACHING – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“The wise man is known by common sense, and a pleasant teacher is the best. Wisdom is a fountain of life to those possessing it, but a fool’s burden is his folly. From a wise mind comes careful and persuasive speech”. Read: Proverbs 16:21-23

It has to be acknowledged that school teachers need an awful lot of wisdom in dealing with their young charges. It is enough of a challenge to care for your own children with wisdom and grace, but when you have thirty or more children belonging to some body else for five days of every week, wow, that is a challenge!

I have just asked my two grand-daughters who their favourite teacher is and why? In both instances they came back with their names and then added “because they are nice“. My mini research endorses completely the declaration in today’s proverb ‘A pleasant teacher is the best’. Now let’s face it, to have a bunch of children continually under your care for five days of every week, must at times become exasperating to say the least! To maintain a pleasant manageable disposition in itself demands a certain discipline in verbal communication, not to mention emotional restraint.

This relational approach which is so essential in the teacher –student mix is not so easily achieved. That’s why we should really appreciate their commitment to our offspring. Three cheers for teachers!!!.

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
BEING POSITIVE – Numbers 12

We hear a great deal in our day about being positive in relation to life. The point and emphasis is on making sure that we possess an optimistic attitude to what is occurring even when the situation is most negative and of a doubtful order. Why give in and yield to a depressive mindset and allow one to be dictated to by things and factors that would reduce to a state of fear and impotence! When things appear to be of an impossible and challenging nature and are challenging and demanding, it is imperative to take up an assured spirit and state of mind. All the time the Lord had been endeavouring to produce this assured state of being.

Twelve men were sent on a mission to view the Promised Land and to bring back an exciting and inspiring record about all of its prospects. They were to consider everything in order so as to set the people up to go in and possess it. All of them admitted it was worth going for but ten of them allowed the problems to take priority and dictate their minds and spirits. They failed to be positive and as a result sowed an evil attitude amongst all the people so that they became imbued with a negative state of being. They did not possess what could and should have been theirs. The two men that were positive, Joshua and Caleb, did make it.

The ten who were negative and failed to believe, their names are not remembered. They are a forgotten factor because they failed to achieve. Be encouraged today and for the rest of your life to be positive in God because He desires to bring about the impossible through your life and work. Do not be robbed by doubt, fear and unbelief. As you believe you will see God backing and blessing your life and labour in every way.
