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

“God is my strong fortress. He makes my way perfect. He makes his feet like hinds’ feet, and sets me on my high place”s – 2 Sam 22: 33,34

In today’s promise, we read of King David’s declaration of God’s faithfulness after he was delivered from the murderous pursuit of his father-in-law, King Saul. He proclaims to everyone who will hear, that God is his strength and power and makes his feet sturdy, like the sure footing of the deer who climb the mountaintops.

The Amplified Bible says 2 Samuel 22:33-34 this way… 33God is my strong Fortress; He guides the blameless in His way and sets him free.34He makes my feet like the hinds’ [firm and able]; He sets me secure and confident upon the heights. (AMP)

With God on our side, we are able to climb to great heights knowing that He will help us stand firm in the highest of places. We have nothing to fear. He is able to keep us from falling. May our God and Father strengthen you and give you the sure footing you need today, no matter what obstacles you face, so you can reach great heights in His loving care.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
SELLER BEWARE! Rev. Bob Stevenson

“If you love sleep you will end in poverty Stay awake, work hard, and there will be plenty to eat! “Utterly worthless!”says the buyer as he haggles over the price. But afterwards he brags about his bargain! Good sense is far more valuable than gold or precious silver: Read: Proverbs 20: 13- 15

Somebody has said that you don’t make money out of selling something at the right price, but by buying it at the right price in the first place.

In the cut and thrust world of sales and commission only salaries, all kinds of ploys are used in order to get the best deal possible. Of course selling is a skill in itself irrespective of the commodity being sold. Having lived in the orient where haggling is par for the course, even for the most basic of commodities, I must confess to being overcharged on many occasions especially when later discovering I had paid through the nose.

I have now adopted the policy, that irrespective of the price I pay for something, if I consider it to be good value at the time, then that‘s good enough for me. If l later find out that somebody has done a better deal than me then I happily accept that fact, although I have to admit to some resentment creeping in when occasionally I have been ripped off.

Buyer or seller whoever you are! Accept the fact ahead of time that some you win and some you lose, and alter all it’s only money!

QUOTES TO NOTE

FORGIVENESS

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. Mahatma Gandhi

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it. Mark Twain

Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them. Bruce Lee

DAILY MEDITATIONS
A GOOD NECKLACE TO WEAR – Proverbs 3: 3 & 4; 1 Peter 3: 1-6

Our modern society appears to be no different from former generations. Many people today, of both genders, like to wear ornaments and things around their necks. Both men and women have chains and crosses around their necks, some merely as an adornment and others as an emblem to secure their fortune and covering.

The wise proverb from the NIV states in v3 “Never let loyalty and kindness get away from you! Wear them like a necklace.” These twin graces are meant to make the life both beautiful and bountiful. At a time when these two qualities are very much in recession, Christians must make sure that at all times they are manifest in their lives in every way. Loyalty is that steadfast commitment to both God and people, that is unremitting even though put under pressure and strain. It was evident in Ruth when she made up her mind she was going to stick with her mother-in-law through thick and thin times. Kindness is that which was reflected in the Good Samaritan that went out of his way to befriend a foreigner in a hostile situation.

In facing the day before us, let us make sure that we attend to having this divine necklace on. Although the situation we live and work may be devoid of these godly virtues, we can visibly demonstrate their worth and value and make a difference. Do not become disloyal in any way and certainly refrain from becoming hard and harsh. There is a need for you to perfectly show the beauty of these choice qualities and impress others with the truth of Christian faith and conduct. Note: there is a great guarantee afforded to those who evidence these graces – v4 “Then you will find favour with both God and people, and you will gain a good reputation.”
