Faith always wins Through!

Over Traditionalism?

We hear much about the Christian religion in the media, but we don’t get to hear of the good things that are happening around the world and all over the place?

New things, God moving changing lives, wars ending, people talking, trying to make peace, new schools, hospitals, pumps for water in deserts and much more!

What God really wants is for His believers to keep living by faith and not caught up in the deadness of ritualism and traditions!

Psalm 36:3,   Acts 10:38,   Ephesians 6:7,   1 Peter 2:15,   20,   3:6.

Families! One.

Natural and Spiritual?

There are two kinds of families, natural ones that we all come from or belong to and Spiritual ones that we have entered through repentance, confession and being Born-Again by the Holy-Spirit!

In the natural order we belong to parents, or we have been adopted and other cases orphans with many issues to carry through our lives? Families are full of rows and also strife, mixed in with the good times too?

But the Spiritual family is different, in that we belong to Ekklesia, the family of God that is universal! It should have no borders and we should all be helping each other? But the reality is far from this truth, believers are divided by false teachings and a lack of reading the Bible?

Acts 2:42-47,  1 Corinthians 3:4-7,   2 Peter 2:9.

 

‘Our Father?

God our Father!

All of have had fathers, some good, some not so? Some died, while others ran away to avoid responsibility, while still others were part of the mixture of human relations and sin outside wedlock?

In this world what ever set up or relationship we have with or are a father it is up to us to make the best for our children and do what is right and best? But when we know the Lord Jesus as our personal saviour, we come into personal relationship with both God and His one and only son Jesus!

Knowing God as our Fathers, opens us to know that he cares, loves and always wants the best for us!

Isaiah 63:16,  64:8,  Malachi 2:10,  Matthew 6:9,  Romans 8:15,  1 Corinthians 1:3,  8:6.

2016 ‘Another Year.’

‘Happy New Year.’

We all want to see and are expecting somethings to be better this year, better in many ways than the last and this is natural for all of us!

But we also know that despite the many good things that will come our way, there are also many bad because that is how the world and our life cycle works.

It is easy to write these words and to make many written statements, but when one has lived life and faced the everyday sadness in reflection one knows many things.

Perhaps this year will be the one that reflects on ones own standing in relation to all around us and sees the need of Jesus as a friend, helper and the Lord of our New Life in Him?

Matthew 11:28-30,   Luke 11:9-13,  1 Peter 3:8.

Evil and Wickedness. Part-One.

We Choose.

Every human ever born and to be born will have the inherited defect of sin. It is part of our fallen state that we cannot escape, without the Salvation of Jesus. We have a great God, because he has allowed humanity to choose between doing right and wrong.

At the moment there is a term going around connected to a British TV series called Born Killers. The bible says’ that people are born sinners.’   Psalm 58:5.

It is up to us to choose wither we will be bad or good.  Genesis 8:21,  Proverbs 3:7,  Matthew 6:13.

Revisionism. Part-Three.

It is said ‘that it is the victors who write the history.’

The best things to do for any historian is to tell the whole truth. To report the mistakes and the failures of both sides and not pretend we are the good guys and they are the bad ones.

The bible is the only book ever written that tells us that all of humanity is sinful. Romans 3:23,  5:12, 6:23.  But God has provided His son Jesus for us to believe in his death and resurrection from the dead, to be set free.  Acts 10:38, Isaiah 45:22, 1 Timothy 1:15, 1 Peter 4:18.
