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

The earth is Yahweh’s, with its fullness; the world, and those who dwell therein” – Psalm 24:1

When everything seems to be spinning out of control, it is comforting to remember this promise. When the economy is shaking and fear rises up in people’s hearts around you, it is reassuring to meditate on the bigness of our God. The New International Version translation of Psalm 24:1 says it this way… The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; (NIV)

Simply put, God is sovereign. He is on the throne and all of the earth and everything in it belongs to Him. Our adversary may be called the prince of the power of the air, but he is NOT the Lord over heaven and earth. Our God and Father reigns over all and our Elder Brother will be forever known as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

My prayer today is that we would all be comforted in knowing that our Heavenly Dad is the biggest, strongest, most loving Dad there is in the universe! The entire earth and all that is in it belongs to Him.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
NAG – NAG – NAG – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“A rebellious son is a calamity to his father; and a nagging wife annoys like a constant dripping. A father can give his sons homes and riches, but only the Lord can give them understanding wives. A lazy man sleeps soundly — and he goes hungry!” – Read: Proverbs 19: 13- 15

Let’s put the record straight at the outset, it isn’t only women who are the naggers. Unfortunately they come in both genders and both alike have the same effect.

I also confess to having a great sympathy for the wonderful wives and mothers of this world who are pulling all the stops out to provide for their families but have spouses that have no ‘get-up- and-go’ no matter what the incentive might be!

It must be as equally annoying to have a partner with the skills and abilities you may not possess, who has neither the motivation nor inclination to get things done, without having to have constant reminders and cajolings.

However, in either case the answer to the problem does not lie in the nag-nag-nag approach. Whilst on occasions such an approach is completely justified, it usually ends up being totally c0unter- productive and only serves in heightening the resistance factor.

Thankfully in most relationships we are aware of the cut-off point to this scenario and some how or other find a way to get the job done. But how sad the situation, to have to endure a daily dose of nag-nag-nag, irrespective of all your good intentions and efforts —it’s as annoying as a dripping tap!

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
ANIVERSARY

There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage – Martin Luther

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live – Robert A. Heinlein

Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads, which sew people together through the years – Simone Signoret

The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they’re right if you love to be with them all the time – Julia Child

DAILY MEDITATIONS
A TESTIMONY OF TRIUMPH – Joshua 12; Acts 17

The record here is of the conquest of 31 kings – v24. It is quite a catalogue of triumph and is a written testimony of the success rate in terms of battle and victory. Little did the Israelites think that they would be putting down in permanent record the fact that they had been able to move into the Promised Land and experience such an overthrow and routing of their enemies. As an invading force,
without all the military training and acquirements, they had been able to register
untold defeat against a variety of opponents. The outcome had been determined by the fact that the Lord had been the Commander in Chief.

It was a remarkable thing that a nation of former slaves should become a nation of conquerors and inheritors. They had emerged at last to become a people that could become both warriors and winners. No longer were they being victimised but victors. Instead of being ruled over they were taking authority and showing that they could deal with any opposing situation. Through the leadership of Joshua, under the guidance of Jehovah, they were making a name for their God and themselves in the process. They were no longer to be regarded a non-entity but a potent people.

The Acts of the Apostles sees the Christian Church on the move taking territory. Christ is presented and His powerful Gospel and the witness is that it moves into cities, areas and countries to exhibit its power and authority. The first century sees the onward thrust of Christendom. In Acts 17: 6 the testimony of the outside world was – “These men that have turned the world upside down are come here also.” The Church is to be a threat to sin and evil and a blessing to society. We need to be making impact on our community for Christ.
