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

“Beloved, now we are children of God, and it is not yet revealed what we will be. But we know that, when he is revealed, we will be like him; for we will see him just as he is” 1 John 3:2:2

When Jesus returns, we will be like Him because we will see Him as He is. This Scripture tells us that at this point, we don’t know what that will look like. All we know is that when we fix our eyes on Jesus, there will be a final transformation that will take place to conform us into His image completely.

While this promise gives us hope for the future, it also speaks directly into our present situation. The Apostle John encourages us that we are sons of God now! We do not have to wait until we see Jesus face to face to experience the tangible reality of being God’s kids. We are His children now, and one day, we will see all of the human trappings of our flesh consumed in the fire of the presence of Jesus when we see him face to face.

But until then, we have an amazing promise that we are already the children of God right now! May each one of us be able to see with our spiritual eyes today that the promise of God is not only for the future, but for the present!

WISDOM THAT WORKS

THE GREAT QUESTIONS OF LIFE – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“I am too stupid to call myself a human being. I cannot understand man, let alone God. Who else but God goes back and forth to heaven? Who else holds the wind in His fists and wraps up the oceans in His cloak? Who but God has created the world? if there is any other, whet is His name — and His Sons name — if you know it?”.

Read: Proverbs 30: 1-4

“Who created the world?” or “How did it come into being?” are questions which have occupied some of the sharpest minds in history. Every day that goes by we are learning more and more about the world as it exists today. We still discovering new species of life on earth in the oceans around us.

The make up of the human frame can be reduced to a few chemical compounds easily obtained from anywhere on earth. They can now measure the earth’s size and weight with incredible miniscule accuracy. We map out the intricate genetic codes of minescule living beings. We can even identify the DNA every individual human being on the planet to almost 100% accuracy. We can fly to the moon and send remote controlled vehicles to land on Saturn. We can investigate the wonders the cells in our body which contain more than the components parts of a Boeing 747 aircraft. And so we could go on in areas microbiology, physics and the whole gamut of the other sciences.

However nobody has ever yet satisfactorily found the answer to our two basic questions. Is it any wonder that Agur thought himself stupid in even posing the question, that could be any other than God and his Son?

QUOTES TO NOTE – John Maxwell

Teamwork makes the dream work, but a vision becomes a nightmare when the leader has a big dream and a bad team.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

THIRSTING FOR GOD – Psalm 42

What descriptive language is used here by the psalmist to reveal what he felt in his being toward God! He expresses the depth of his whole inward state in these choice words – “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after You, O God” – v1. There had been times when he had seen these creatures in their quest for water in a desperate state, especially in a dry season. They literally craved, sought and called out for a drink of water. In this sight he saw a picture of his own spiritual longing for God to come and satisfy his immediate need. He had a seemingly unquenchable thirst to know and experience God in His fullness in his life.

The rest of the psalm makes known that he was in a trying situation. He was feeling low and depressed and required the intervention and blessing of God in his life and affairs to lift him out of himself. Thankfully he was aware of the fact that only the Lord could and would answer this prevailing condition. To look to anyone else or elsewhere would be a vanity. Deep within, he firmly believed that the Lord would turn up and refresh him totally. He did say, “Yet the Lord will command his loving-kindness in the day-time . . .” He would not be left high and dry but the Lord would more than compensate his thirst and quest.

So with you: be sure that when things are all dried up and you are in impossible straits, keep on in your reach out for God. You may be may be at full stretch at this moment, desperate for the answer of the Lord Himself: He will come and provide an oasis of life and sustenance that will renew and satisfy you to the full. No one else can meet and minister to you like Him, and He is still on the scene to make sure you do not die of thirst.
