WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 135,000 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

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin” – 1 John 1:7

Jesus is called the Light of the World. In Him is no darkness, only brilliant, glorious light. The good news of the gospel is that when we receive the free gift of God, which is the life of His own Son, we are completely cleansed from all unrighteousness and forgiven from all our sin.

We have become children of the light because we are now joined completely into the holy life of Jesus. Romans 8:1 says because of this exchange, there is therefore now no condemnation for us.

Our adversary the devil is called the accuser of the brethren. His aim is to continually bring accusations against us that would somehow cause us to feel ashamed and hide from God. When you hear these accusing voices, declare the finished work of the blood of Jesus over your life, for it is the cleansing power of Jesus’ blood that keeps us walking in the light!

We have no need to hide in shame from God. Jesus Christ has secured our place in His Father’s heart and His blood has covered our past sins, our present sins and our future sins. You can rest in the finished work of Jesus Christ. When He cried it is finished! on the cross, He meant it.

Does this mean that we can go on living  a sinful life? God forbid! However, we can rest assured that if we walk in the light as Jesus is in the light, His blood cleanses us from ALL sin.

WISDOM THAT WORKS

ANGER MANAGEMENT – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“The churning of cream yields butter, and a blow to the nose causes bleeding, so anger causes quarrels”

Read: Proverbs 30:33

Anger in whatever guise is as volatile as TNT and the sooner its explosive potential is diffused the better it is for everyone concerned. The key to effective anger management is being able to identify the early warning signs d unchecked imminent disaster.

Each one of us carries a different flash-point when it comes to anger. For some it is a simple comment that is interpreted the wrong way that causes our hackles to rise. Others find it hard to take any form of criticism even if given with good intent. Then, like the churning of cream will eventually produce butter, so the continual nagging or harping on about some issue will eventually produce some negative reaction.

Whatever is the pathway that leads to uncontrolled verbal or even worse, physical outburst, we do need to develop ahead of time some anger avoidance tactics like the following: Acknowledge the right of others to voice their opinion. Expect verbal misunderstandings when they happen. Accept the fact that you might be in the wrong. And lastly, realise that you do have the power to control your emotions. The Bible says’ “Be angry and sin not” and “Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath”. ( Ephesians 4:26) Be indignant, yes, on occasions, but always in a calm and measured state of mind.

QUOTES TO NOTE – Harriet Beecher Stove

Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

DAILY MEDITATIONS 

IN REAL DIFFICULTY – Psalm 55

From what is expressed in the opening verses in words of prayer it is obvious that the psalmist is in real difficulty. He is not in an easy situation to bear. He is what we would say in modern language: ‘under pressure.’ There have been forces set escape from the whole ordeal. In fact he uses familiar words: “Oh that I had wings like a dove! For then I would fly away, and be at rest. Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Think on that!” – vv6, 7. He wanted a way out of this distress.

The real problem for him was that the cause was not an inveterate enemy but one considered to be a familiar friend and counsellor – vv12-14. A person that he had trusted and known in an intimate way was now piling untoward pressure on him. One senses that he felt he could have taken it from the former but this attack from a trusted person became seemingly unbearable. In the circumstances he turns to the Lord to off-load the problem on Him and he knows he will not be disappointed. He comes to the point where he recommends this to others – v22 “Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain you: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”

It may be that you are going through an experience of this nature where you have pinned your faith in someone that you considered to be a close friend. They now have seemingly let you down and are now a virulent opponent of your good and welfare. You’d like to escape from it all! The best means to be employed is prayer, faith and the will to place the issue in the Lord’s hands. Do so and find the divine answer to the problem. It is purposed to bring greater developments in you.
