Together…

Part 4 ‘Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me’ The word translated here as ‘take’ also means to lift up, bear, carry, to take upon oneself and carry what has been raised up. The rest we’ve been looking at comes as we’re yoked or joined together with Christ. When His desires become ourContinue reading “Together…”

Made in God’s image…

Have you ever really paused to think what it means to be created in God’s image? Because in… ‘the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;’ We were created to be image bearers. So why do our lives, our thoughts, our words, our actions, so often reflect everything butContinue reading “Made in God’s image…”

Goals in a Changing World

As I was reading in Corinthians this morning I began to wonder how many of us had set goals this year? Things we wanted to focus on, areas we wanted to grow in etc. We’re now a third of the way through the year and life is looking very different to what any of usContinue reading “Goals in a Changing World”

Rest…

Do you ever feel like a hamster on a wheel? Busy with this or that all day long, round and around, sometimes seeming to achieve little other than wear yourself out?

Rejoice in the Lord…

The first half of this verse really stood out to me this morning… ‘Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.’ The Israel of God is each ransomed sinner, each child of God…let each child of God rejoice in him that made him. Is Israel’sContinue reading “Rejoice in the Lord…”

These Things…

‘These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.. These things… What things had Jesus spoken and to who. Jesus had eaten supper with his disciples and washed their feet, Judas, that wouldContinue reading “These Things…”

What is Your Why?

What is our why? Why do we do what we do? There’s an incident recorded that happened soon after the miracles of the loaves and fishes where Jesus said this… ‘Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.’ The disciple thought Jesus said this because they’d only brought oneContinue reading “What is Your Why?”
