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

“We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose” – Romans 8: 28

This Bible verse has brought comfort to a countless number of people throughout the years. It is very reassuring to know that no matter what happens in our life, our God and Father is able to cause all things to work together for our good.

Of course this does not mean that everything that happens in our life is good, because we know that is simply not the case. We live in a fallen world where bad things happen to good people. Nevertheless, our God is able to redeem even the most difficult of situations and somehow, some way, He promises to ultimately work all things for our good.

We might not see the ‘good’ that He has in store for us immediately, but be assured that from God’s eternal perspective, His heart is for your best interest in the long run. May this promise of our Papa’s plan for a bright future encourage you in the midst of any hardships that you are facing today.

WISDOM THAT WORKS

ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”A man is known by his actions. An evil man lives an evil life; a good man lives a godly life. lt is better to live in the corner of an attic than with a crabby woman in a lovely home. An evil man loves to harm others; being a good neighbour is out of his line” – Read: Proverbs 21:8- 10

We have all heard the adage, “Alter all, when all is said and done, there is always more said than done” Oh yes, you can get to know what somebody is like by what they say, but it’s their actions that reveal their true nature. Jesus was right on target when he said, “You will know them by their fruits”. (Matt 7:20) You see, our actions, like the fruit from a tree, are the product of the nature that is inside us. We produce what we are, not what we say we are.

This is an inescapable law of the universe. A good tree won’t produce bad fruit and likewise a bad tree cannot produce good fruit. This principle works in every sphere of life whether in a negative context or positive. The epistle of James is quick to point this out concerning faith. You can say that you believe until you are blue in the face, but unless there is some action that backs up those words it is mere rhetoric. (James 2:17)

It was Smith Wigglesworth, the early Pentecostal pioneer who was known for the powerful manifestations of a signs and wonders ministry who said; “Faith is an ACT”. Nobody was left in any doubt about this man’s credentials when it came to the business of having faith. His actions spoke louder than words and the fruit of those actions remain with us today.

QUOTES TO NOTE

Graduations

God wants us to know that life is a series of beginnings, not endings. Just as graduations are not terminations, but commencements. Creation is an ongoing process, and when we create a perfect world where love and compassion are shared by all, suffering will cease. Bernie Siegel

The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values. William S. Burroughs

When my mother took her turn to sit in a gown at her graduation, she thought she only had two career options: nursing and teaching. She raised me and my sister to believe that we could do anything, and we believed her. Sheryl Sandberg

 

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A WAY TO HAPPINESS – Proverbs 3: 13-18

For many, happiness is simply dependent simply upon good things taking place in their lives and circumstances. They truly hope that in the passing of life that the events and experiences that occur will somehow turn out in their favour. There is a kind of vain trust that things will work themselves out to their advantage.  There is the failure to note, as expressed in this proverb, that real, spiritual happiness is to be found in the discovery of wisdom. Wisdom teaches the way that life should be understanding” – v13.

Wisdom confers more than happiness, that is, a sense of good feeling. It bestows blessings of such a nature that moves on to a sacred state of blessedness – the blessedness of God. Aaron Linford lists seven special gifts that come through wisdom’s presence and application: “Perception, prosperity, potential, promotion, pleasantness, peace and perfection.”  Each one of them is worth having but with a sevenfold experience of them, what a multiplication of blessedness!

You could do no better thing than to seek this divine wisdom today and allow it to furnish your mind and direct your action. All these qualities will begin to be ministered to you and become manifest through you. Others will observe how blessed and happy you are by reason of her presence and influence. They will know that you are wisely investing your life in the right principles and things. By so doing you will furnishing a good testimony and serve as an example to others to follow.
