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

“that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be strengthened to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” – Ephesians 3: 17-19

Today’s promise is part of the amazing prayer that the Apostle Paul prays for the church at Ephesus in Ephesians 3:14-21. In this prayer, Paul makes his requests known to the Father from whom His family in heaven and earth is named after (v 14 & 15) that He might strengthen our inner man by the power of His Holy Spirit.

The whole point of this prayer is that the Holy Spirit would root us deeply in the love of God so that we would have power to be able to know (grasp, understand) the vastness of His immeasurable love that has been given to us in Jesus Christ our Lord.

The love that God has for us cannot be comprehended any other way. It is far too great for us to be able to grasp in our human understanding. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to make God’s love a reality to us. In Romans 5:5, Paul says that God has poured out His love into our hearts by His Spirit.

WISDOM THAT WORKS

EXPLOITATION – Rev Bob Stevenson

“Don’t rob the poor and sick! For the LORD is their defender. If you injure them he will punish you”.

Read: Proverbs 22: 22-23

Exploitation, by whatever brand name it might happen to be given, is totally abhorrent, not only to the Almighty, but to any normal fair-minded individual. It strikes at the very heart of human decency and is rightly condemned by God Himself.

You see exploitation is the act of taking advantage of somebody’s inadequacy or inability in the full and blatant knowledge they will never be able to fend for themselves. This not only applies to the economically poor of this world but the emotionally, educationally and spiritually poor. In fact exploitation is the mechanism by which people seek to advance themselves, or their aims, at the expense of those less fortunate.

The seventeenth century gave to England the dubious notoriety of what was referred to as “Transportation”. In order to address the criminal remove the prison system out of the sight of so called respectable English gentry, were passed enabling authorities to send convicted felons to the other side of the In his book ‘The Fatal Shore Robert Hughes documents some of the exploitation of the poor who by this system were sent to the penal colonies of Australia for what were then, and still are the most trivial of offences.

Such injuries do not go unnoticed by God who will surely call to account those who gain

QUOTES TO NOTE – Robert Browning

Take away love and our earth is a tomb.

A minute’s success pays the failure of years.

Earth changes, but thy soul and God stand sure.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

DIVINE CONFIRMATIONS – Judges 6: 36-40; 7: 9-15

It is most assuring to know that the Lord does desire to give every assurance when enormous challenges face His servants and people that are far beyond their ability to contend with. He wants them to be able to enter the conflict without doubt or fear so that their approach is the best possible. The Lord responds on two occasions here: one solicited the other unsolicited.

On two nights the Lord confirms Gideon’s desire. The fleece of wool on the first night is utterly soaked with dew whilst the ground was dry and the reverse took place the second night. The ground was wet through and the fleece was dry. The second confirmation was in hearing the dream of the Midianite with the cake of barley rolling into the camp of the Midianites and overturning the tent. Gideon knew the interpretation immediately as seen from his word to the people – “Arise; for the Lord hath delivered into your hand the host of Midian” – 7: 15.

You may be looking for the Lord’s confirmation in some vital area of your life. He has many ways of giving the needful assurance, as He wants you to be full of faith and to go ahead and achieve the impossible. Be encouraged to honestly and earnestly seek the Lord for His timely action and word so that you may be emboldened to fulfil His call to fulfil His high expectations. In no way will He let you down as you converse with Him in sincere fashion.
