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

“Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” – Matthew 25:34

In today’s promise, Jesus is telling a story about sheep and goats where the sheep (those who are in Christ) will be welcomed into the everlasting kingdom of our God and Father on that great day. Jesus tells us that the kingdom that we will inherit was prepared for us from the foundation of the world.

You and I may not have a substantial inheritance on this side of heaven from our earthly parents, but when we finish our race and are welcomed into the dwelling place of our God and Father, we will have an everlasting kingdom inheritance waiting for us.

May the reality of this promise encourage each one of us today. We are not poor in the sight of the living God, but are richer than any one of us could possibly imagine. Because we are sons and daughters to our Heavenly Dad… because we are joint-heirs with Jesus (our Elder Brother) … because we are the temple of the Holy Spirit… we have an everlasting kingdom inheritance waiting for us. Hallelujah!!!!

WISDOM THAT WORKS

EASY OPTION$ – Rev. Bob Stevenson

 “God is more pleased when we are just and fair than when we give Him gifts”.

Read: Proverbs 21:3

I once came across a book entitled ‘Authentic Christianity’ which unfortunately I never got around to purchasing. However the title did intrigue me because l immediately asked the question, “What other kind of Christianity is there?” The whole point of having a living relationship with a loving heavenly Father is to impart to me an authenticity about life and its values. How often though, do we act in ways that leave a massive gap between what we say we believe and the actual out-workings of that belief.

This is not more manifest than in the areas of morality and ethics. Maybe sometimes we can stretch the truth to our own advantage. After all nobody is any wiser! Except God of course! I guess we could fill quite a few pages outlining those tiny little ways we may not have been as fair and just as we could have been, especially when it is left to our own personal integrity to call the shots.

Then there is the easier option that we sometimes use to balance our scales of justice. We pay our tithes, we support the poor in the third world, we gladly donate to the building fund etc. etc.

The trouble is, these easier options may give us a great sense of personal satisfaction God?

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A HOLY HOME – Proverbs 3: 33; 2 Samuel  6: 1-12

It is important to have a good, happy home. Children should be brought up in awell ordered and blessed family so that they can look back upon their childhood as one of pleasure. Parents are responsible in making sure that above everything else that the home becomes a dwelling place where all that is good occurs. It is obvious from this wise saying that the Lord is aware of the real condition of each family unit and He wills to see the birth of a holy, happy home. It states: “The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked; But He blesseth the habitation of the just.”

The assured word is that the Lord will favour the home that distinctly honours Him by eliminating evil and instituting all that is right and good. The household of Obededom came under the direct and distinct hand of the Lord’s blessing and He was pleased to dwell in that home in a signal fashion. The head of the home and all that dwelt under its roof came under the benediction of God. Everyone became aware of the wonderful things God was doing in the household.

Give attention to your home and family because it rates high in the Lord’s consideration. Your dwelling place is to be the venue where He makes His presence and goodness known in a powerful manner as you respect Him, His Word and ways. He wants to crown your home and each resident with His constant blessing. A Christian family, with its godly presence and influence, serves to the good of those within the neighbourhood. It is a great way to propagate the Christian message.
