Amazing Grace

Why do we try to do what’s right? Is it because that’s the way we were brought up? Is it because we want to be a good Christian? Or is it out of an overflow of love to the One who bore our punishment? When we are called by grace, when our sins are forgiven,Continue reading “Amazing Grace”

How’s Your Day Going?

How’s your day been so far Friend? Isn’t it just so easy to let our circumstances affect out day? A grumpy boss, squabbling children, an unkind word, being taken for granted, something not going as we hoped, that spilt coffee, all the things we still have to do getting on top of us and makingContinue reading “How’s Your Day Going?”

A man after God’s own heart…

When we look at those in the Bible who loved the Lord, those like David about who God said…’I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.’… It’s so easy to feel not enough, to feel that our lives are far from what theyContinue reading “A man after God’s own heart…”

Freedom!

Liberty……freedom…. What comes to mind when you hear these words? Is it that you’re free to do as you please? Jesus tells us that… ‘the truth will make you free’ and Paul exhorts us to…. ‘Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yokeContinue reading “Freedom!”

Is It A Delight?

Do we DELIGHT to do God’s will? Can we say with David… ‘I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.’ If I’m totally honest I don’t always delight to do God’s will. I love the Lord and want so much to please Him and yet there areContinue reading “Is It A Delight?”

How Do You Love?

How do we love?… ‘My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.’ It’s one thing to say we love God but quite another to walk it out. God doesn’t just want our words, He wants and deserves everything from His children because He gave everythingContinue reading “How Do You Love?”

What can I DO?….

Have you ever longed to DO something for God? Have you ever asked the question, what can I DO for God? In the bible we read of those that asked the same question… ‘What shall we DO, that we might work (or do) the works of God?’ What did Jesus reply? ‘This is the workContinue reading “What can I DO?….”

It’s Raining!

I totally surprised myself this morning. I woke up and it was cold, windy and raining hard and my first thought was how good it was that we had the rain to water the earth. Now, us English are known for talking about the weather and I then realised just how often we complain aboutContinue reading “It’s Raining!”

What’s In A Greeting?

I felt the Lord leading me to 2 Cor today but as I began to read, I didn’t get any further than verse two, Paul’s greeting to the church at Corinth…. ‘Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.’ I have read Paul’s greetings in his variousContinue reading “What’s In A Greeting?”

The Beauty of Holiness

I got up this morning with these words running through my mind… ‘worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.’ So I looked it up and found it in three places including Psalm 29 which is a beautiful psalm. It starts with a command, centres on the power of God’s voice and ends with aContinue reading “The Beauty of Holiness”
