God so Loved…! Two.

Old Story, New Message?

Easter is an old story that the world fails to want to understand and yet it will be told again, today with new technology and many people around the world will be saved from their past failures and allowed to enter in to the New Life of a personal relationship with Jesus and our Father!

Easter is about atonement for sins, once and for all time, the giving of the promised New Life and the need for many to find faith in these dire times!  Exodus 10:17,

We as believers have a great responsibility to share with the dying Jesus, with our loved one, friends and even enemies that, For God so Loved the world, that He gave to us His one and only Son!  John 3:14-18.

Psalm 119:4,   Amos 5:4,   Luke 15:7,   John 3:3,   14:1-6,   Acts 3:19,   Romans 6:22-23. 

The people have Spoken!

Sinn Fein for the Poor?

It is always the people that decide the ultimate fate of a government, nation, or ideal of a system and in this case Ireland may be flourishing for the rich but not for the student or the poor!

Rents are now astronomical, just us much as they are in the U.K. and off-shore investors are making a killing and paying little taxes to anyone? But this has to change and despite not having a majority people are seeing now through the corruption of the chums political club that has ruled Ireland since 1922!

God also see the suffering of people and He will use what ever instrument that is available to Him to do His will! Injustice is not in His psyche and allowing anarchy and criminality to flourish while making excuses is neither His but our own failures and our need of Him.

Psalm 91:1-6,   Amos 5:4,   John 3:16-17,   Acts 4:12,   Romans 3:21-31,  Hebrews 4:12-13,  1 John 1:8-10. 

LOVE?

Agape and Eros!

The world thinks it has plenty of love today, everyone is loving each other and yet there is murder, stabbings and terrorism as never seen before, without real reasons rather than being indiscriminate?

The world loves the sinful side of love that clashes with the true love of God, because the world refuses to obey, but would rather go its own way?

We have something that is truly amazing and yet we fail much of the time to share it even in fellowship, let alone with the world around us!

Psalm 103:8,   John 3:16-17,  1 Corinthians 13:4,  1 John 1:9-10,   Jude 1:21.

Crimes out of Control?

The ages of Anarchy!

It would seem now that no matter where we live the world is going mad in crime and the forces that we pay for to protect are either being cut back or corrupt in not helping the poor?

We have opened this New Year with more madness, kinappings, egoistical leadership, war mongering, famine, vengance, knife and gun crimes on the increase!

One has to look at our televisions to see that we are seriously being influenced in soaps to live in bad ways and this is just acceptable? But if we are people of faith we must be apart from the ways of the world and this by the love of Jesus!

John 5:23-24,   Galatians 5:8,    Hebrews 4:12,   1 Peter 1:14,   2 Peter 1:4.

 

 

Doing good & Speaking the Truth?

The cost of faith in Jesus!

Sadly we are living in an age where it is getting harder to be a believer in Jesus, we may claim much but when it comes to doing what is right and speaking the world will do its best to shut us out?

But despite the fear and threats of people, we who have to truth have to point it out to this lost world! Even though it mite cost us loosing our jobs, being excluded or being killed as so many continue to be world-wide?

Psalm 37:4,  141:8,   Jeremiah 29:11, 13,   Matthew 7:7,   Acts 6:5-7:59,   Romans 2:7, Galatians 6:9,   Revelation 3:20.

The Value of Christmas? Two.

A time of answers and Miracles!

The Christmas story is full of answers and miracles, it shows us a loving God who is giving us His one and only Son so that we might believe and be saved back into a personal relationship with Him!

But the world chases after its own answers believing that psychology, sparkling things and money will fill the voids of doubts, disappointment and pain? People turn to alcohol, to tech, to financial security and some to the religion of their choice believing that by austere living they can purge themselves?

Salvation is only found in Jesus and that of seeking His forgiveness and turning away from our pasts knowing that He will give to us a New Life!

Luke 1:46-56,    67-79,    2:25-32,    34-35,    36-38,    John 1:1-5,    3:3,    3:15-16,    Galatians 3:13,    4:4-5.

Having Attitude?

The driving forces!

It all depends on what our attitude is to certain situations and this will also reveal the condition of our hearts and motives?

Human idealism and dogmatic stances will lead to legalistic ideas that will block progress and insight fear or drive a position of refusing to understand the needs of others!

It might seem right, when it is not and many Christians have been ensnared in these attitudes for generations turning what they had from religious freedom into death and having no ability to fully comprehend the truths of Jesus and the Holy Bible?

Numbers 14:24,   Philippians 2:5,   4:5,   Titus 3:2.
