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

“seeing that his divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue” – 2 Peter 1:3

I really appreciate how the New Living Translation expresses 2 Peter 1:3… By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. (NLT)

Because of His amazing love, God has equipped you with His own power so that you will have everything that you need to live a godly life. When God says everything, He means everything! Christ in you, the hope of glory will overcome every challenge that you are currently facing.

No matter how difficult your circumstances, God will empower you with His own divine power! As the Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 8:31 …if God is for you, who can possibly stand against you? My prayer today is that each one of us would realize that whatever God has called us to do, He will give us the power to accomplish it.

We have all that we need in every circumstance because of His great and precious promise to empower us to live a full and good, godly life.

WISDOM THAT WORKS

GET RICH QUICK  – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”God puts out the light of the man who curses his father or mother. Quick wealth is not a blessing in the end”.

Read: Proverbs 20:20~21

We are all aware of the schemes and scams which crop up every now and then which promise the takers a quick and easy financial killing. It never ceases to amaze me that there are always those ready to pay a significant amount of cash to get in on the bonanza. It is amazing that in spite of continual warnings given by the Department of Consumer Affairs or the Current Affairs TV reports, who uncover these nefarious scams that so many get duped. Now that is not to say that the acquiring of wealth is risk free. Far from it! It is after all true, that you do have to speculate in order to accumulate. However it is the speed at which it is expected to produce results which is the downfall of those who lust for riches.

The whole idea of the ‘Get Rich Quick’ promotions or seminars is to play on that part of our nature that allows greed and avarice to take the upper hand, instead of letting the principles of sound judgment and honest endeavour bring its own rewards.

To acquire wealth is certainly not wrong in itself. lt’s our motivations that we need to keep in check. If it looks too good to be true — it probably is!

In any event, to have a relationship with Jesus is the highest prize. He has given to us richly all things to enjoy. (1 Timothy 6:17)

QUOTES TO NOTE

GOD

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls. Mother Teresa

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?’ William Arthur Ward

God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with. Billy Graham

What God intended for you goes far beyond anything you can imagine. Oprah Winfrey

DAILY MEDITATIONS

GIVING TO GOD – Proverbs 3: 9 &10; Malachi 3: 8-12

Giving is important to the blessedness and enjoyment of life. It seems a rather wise thing to show to the One that created us what we think of Him in demonstrating a generous spirit and action with regard to our monies, goods and properties. It needs to be understood that giving to God is not to make God rich because everything already belongs to Him – Psalm 50: 11, 12. Why does He require them? “First, that we should acknowledge the source of our benefits : the source of our giving is God Himself. Secondly, that we should never take for granted the things we enjoy. Thirdly, that we should learn that life is giving and receiving. Giving  is life in motion, flowing and fresh, devoid of stagnation” –  Aaron Linford

Israel as a nation failed to honour God as a people with respect to giving to God although He had given His best to them. Instead of reaping the promises of the proverb in God’s blessing upon their crops, cattle and vineyards, they were labouring under a curse – see Malachi 3. When God is not honoured with respect to His blessing then the opposite comes into effect, instead of plenty there is poverty. Great loss is sustained in not doing it God’s way.

The direction to every Christian believer is to make sure that this principle and procedure is applied. Make certain that God has first place in the realm of your giving and you will reap the divine reward.
