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

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” – Matthew 5:8

In the Old Testament, a person could not look on the face of God and live to tell about it. Even Moses, who was one of God’s closest friends, couldn’t look at the Lord’s face and live. Yet in this passage from the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us that those who are pure in heart will see God face to face.

The reason that we will be able to see God and not be consumed is because of Jesus and the price that He paid so that His life would become our life. Because of His death and resurrection, His righteousness has now become our righteousness. The Bible says that we are hid with Christ in God right now! (Colossians 3:1-3) Jesus’ holiness has now become our holiness and Jesus’ Father has now become our Father (John 20:17).

My prayer today is that the Spirit of God would make the benefits of our salvation more real to us today than ever before. Because of Jesus, we now have access into the throne room of God 24/7 without the fear of being consumed. We can boldly approach our God and Father with confidence night or day, because we have full access to Him in Christ! …Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God!

WISDOM THAT WORKS

OVERINDULGENCE – Rev. Bob Stevenson

”Do you like honey? Don’t eat too much of it , or it will  make you sick. .”

Read: Proverbs 25:16

Overindulgence of any kind will bring with it, its own variety of sickness, be it by eating too much honey or taking more than is healthy of anything else that takes your fancy.

Overindulgence’s twin brother is self-indulgence, because in either case the ability and capacity to take more than is good for you is entirely within your power to make a choice for better or worse. Nobody else can make you overindulge or self-indulge. it is something you have the power to control. This is what makes it so easy to do. Nobody will censure you for your excess, at least not when you are an adult. Nobody can impose limitations on your desire to indulge in any way your fancy might take you, especially if you have the economic freedom to buy whatever you desire.

Overindulgence can also spill over into our emotional life. We can get hurt in our hearts and then enjoy the temporary satisfaction of some self pity. However, like anything else that self-indulgence brings our way, if we let self pity get out of control we will find ourselves with sickness of our own making.

Moderation in all things is the safest path to take and as such will bring the healthfulness it rightly deserves

A QUOTE TO NOTE – Dr. Martin Luther King (Jnr)

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’

DAILY MEDITATIONS

GOD’S CONFIRMATION – 1 Samuel 6

What had recently happened amongst the Philistines really got them to thinking and the need to act. Was what had taken place mere coincidence or was it due to Israel’s God represented in the ark before them? It was essential to find out so that they would know the truth. The plan was devised to appease this God and to return the ark back to Israel. And God was ready to really show this people that He was the sovereign Lord as the unique events unfolded.

The Philistines selected two cows that had recently had young with the realisation that these calves were dependent on them. As they attached the cows to the cart with the ark on, they tested something that was contrary to animal instincts. The natural inclination of those adult cows was to meet the needs of their young and yet they took the ark back to where it belonged, to God’s people. It states that in making this journey that they “went along the highway, lowing as they went, and turned not to the right hand or to the left” – v12. They cut a straight course through God’s direction and superintendence. The Philistines must have been aware of the uniqueness and greatness of Israel’s God in observing this miracle firsthand.

This incident should stir and stimulate our faith in God. If He could truly take over these cattle to direct their steps on the right track, surely He is able to inspire and lead us accordingly. If He proved Himself to the Philistines then surely He will confirm His presence and power to us. He has given His Word, Holy Spirit and choice servants to give true direction to both life and work. Let’s expect it in our lives so that our relationship with Him will deepen and be strengthened.
