Which First? Part-One.

Keeping Traditions or Faith in Jesus?

We as humans like to keep traditions, they make us feel good and easy. They are safe, because we have got to know them so well and they were part of what our ancestors have done and kept.

Traditions are also found in the Christian community, going to Church, taking the Lords table, Christmas and Easter, reading from a certain version of the bible, prayerbook and singing certain types of songs.

Faith on the other hand is trusting in what is not seen and its about risk, knowing that God will help us and change our lives, when we believe. It is also about the work of the Holy Spirit in us daily.

Matthew 5:27, 38, John 3:15-21, Hebrews 11:1.

God’s Protection. Part-Three.

Every Day.

One could say every moment we need Jesus to be with us, at home, at work, services, ministry, school and even in retirement. Because being a believer and follower of Jesus, we will be attacked from all sorts of angles.

God has promised and He is far from a lier, he is truth eternal and it is to Him that we can rely and trust on for His help always.

Luke 18:7,  Romans 15:31,  Ephesians 6:14.

God’s Protection. Part-Two.

David.

When we come to look at the life of King David we see that he was a man on the run from a disturbed paranoid man. David constantly cried out to God for help, like many of us.

It is hard to be a believer in God and to follow the teachings of Jesus, its not just about loving people but rather forgiving them for what they are doing to us.

But to put this into practice we know like David that we have God’s protection daily.

Psalm 140:1,  4,  11,  Matthew 6:13.

God’s Protection. Part-One.

Jesus.

God recognised His own Son Jesus and He protected Him from baby to His appointed time, do you not think we as believers in Jesus will go unprotected?

If we are walking in the will of God and not on our own initiative, then we will be protected and able also to give thanks and praise God.

Matthew 3:17,  Psalm 18:49,  22:27-30
