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 we know that if the earthly house of our tent is dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens” – 2 Corinthians 5:1

In 1 Corinthians 13:13, the Apostle Paul tells us that faith, hope and love remain. In the last few devotionals, I have been talking a lot about love and faith. Today I want to talk about hope. If we have what we hope for, we no longer need to hope for it. There are some promises that God has made to us that we have not yet seen the fulfilment of. This is one of the those promises.

It is comforting to know that one day, when our body fails, we will have an eternal house in heaven that will last forever. This is a promise that we can hold onto with all our hearts. The eternal home that is waiting for us will not be built with human hands, but will be built by God Himself…and we will be a pillar in His house.

On that day, we will no longer experience suffering or loss. Pain or disease will be gone, for we will be with God and He will be with us. May today’s promise bring great comfort to us when we think of those in the faith who have gone before us. May we also be filled with hope ourselves knowing that we have an eternal home waiting for us too!

WISDOM THAT WORKS
FRIENDS OR FRIENDS! – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”The poor man pleads, and the rich man answers with insults. There are “friends” who pretend to be friends, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother”. Read: Proverbs 18:23~24 :

There are friendships that you forge throughout a lifetime that last for years and years irrespective of circumstance or distance. I had no problem whatsoever recalling who my friend of all friends is, and even to this day l know our mutual friendship is something that is really special. Now that’s not to say that the other friendships are of no consequence in my life, but to me Laurie Bradley is the one who is really special. There have been various people who have come across my path who I thought were going to turn out real friends but alas as time passed by their enthusiasm to keep in touch waned and if I am strictly honest maybe my interest was lacking also.

The third category of friends l have noticed are those whose friendships have had an ulterior motivation. In some cases a friendship was established with the intention of gaining some advantage out of our association or gaining some personal mileage out of this so called friendship. No! Real friendship is never based on anything like this, and if it is, it is doomed to failure. Real friendship is forged when the relationship is as strong, or even stronger than those of family.

What a friend we have in Jesus! Hallelujah! He will always stick close by!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
AGE

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. – Mark Twain

Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order – John Adams

The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, the young know everything – Oscar Wilde

Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read – Francis Bacon

DAILY MEDITATIONS
EXPRESSING SUPREMACY – Joshua 10: 28-42

The victory that had just been known was the setting for the establishing for an added spirit of faith, courage and expectation. The five kings that had been the assailants were locked up in a cave whilst the conflict persisted and eventually won. Once it was over, Joshua was to give a vital lead to those engaged in the matter of warfare as to what they would do with regard to every prospective adversary. He brings out the kings from the cave, these human authorities and dignitaries, and calls upon his captains to put their feet upon their necks – v24.

The act was symbolic and was a message to them that this was to occur with all that stood in their way during the immediate future. They needed to imbibe the spirit and atmosphere of being conquerors. No longer were they to sense intimidation and fear no matter who the opposition represented. It was time to express an attitude of divine supremacy.

Paul captures this mind and mood in Romans 8: 37 when he states with regard to the Christian life and experience in relation to all things – “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” Defeat was not in his philosophy or vocabulary and neither should it be in ours. He found himself to be in the place where he welcomed the opportunity of proving the sufficiency of Christ in all challenging situations. There was no way that he was going to wilt and wither under any pressure because he knew how to tread on the neck of his enemies and circumstances. We were born to be winners and not losers.
