Workers Rights?

1st May.

Exploitation continues, despite the abolition of black slavery? The end of colonial slavery was replaced by the Industrial revolution and the need for mass cheap labour! Many children were forced down the mines and into the mill machine cleaning, people were forced to live in back to back housing and vile conditions!

The 19th Century say the rise of Socialist idealism and the workers Utopia of rights and farer conditions, sometimes coming at great coast? Capitalism was the driving forces of big business, apart from some Christian efforts to appease their workers, there was little care for the workers and their families?

Today many people are working for little or nothing and this is not right, if we claim to know Jesus then we should show, care, concern and love for the less fortunate?

Genesis 31:7-8,   Luke 10:34,   John 4:36,   Romans 3:23,   6:23.

LOVE. 2.

Hate what is Evil and….

Love the truth, so that we can return to God an appreciate what Jesus has done for us!

Salvation came at a cost, blood was spilt to bring us into a New Life and Relationship with Him and our Father? Why then do we not believe the world of God, and why do we continue to live like the world?

Lifestyle is an excuse to refuse to change to the way that he wants us to be, less of self and more of Jesus? It is an honour to suffer for doing the right things, not a burden! Jesus went to the cross for us of His own choice!

Loving God is much more than the traditional Saint Valentines, when it is applied in Love and truth!

Exodus 20:20-23,   Job 31:11-12,   Isaiah 1:17,   Romans 1:27,   2 Thessalonians 2:10, James 1:27.

He has Arisen. Part-One.

Leadership.

On the third day, as he had promised Jesus arose from the dead. He had conqured death and this is how we who have faith are set free from the curse that death is.

Matthew 17:22, Mark 9:30-31, Luke 24:6-7.

We tend to sometimes overlook the account of Peter thinking that this was just his restoration to be forgiven and continue in following, but this has more to do with leadership qualities.

Being a Christian, means that we may be asked to take on some responsibility in our fellowship, from making the tea, to teaching in the Sunday school, youth work or just visiting the older folks.

John 21:15-17.

‘Christmas is coming. Part-Three.

A time to share.

Many people over this season will give up and comit suicide, others will block it out because of rejection and loneliness. Some don’t believe in it anyway. But what is our response to it?  Psalm 10:2,  59:12,  Luke 10:34-35.

God allowed His son Jesus to be born in a stable, becuase despite being a King he was to serve us in His humility. Poverty for a start, is to show us do we really care about others and can we be generous and forgive failings. Mark 7:22,  Luke 2:8-20.

It is pride that closes our hearts at this time of the year, but we should know that this is never Gods way.  Mark 11:25-26,  1 John 1:9.

Good Merit. Part-One.

I’m Alright.

Most people think that they are good, that they are better than most. I’s a good person, because I give to charity, go to Mass or Church, am fare with most people and try to do what is right most of the time.

Many care for their parents or others, believing that this will get them on good terms with God and they will go to heaven. But these are not the conditions that have been set down by God in relation to eternity. Yes it is good that we do good, but we must first confess that Jesus Christ, the Son of God is our own personal Saviour and that we live and move in His will, control and not our own wants and will’s. John 3:3-8,  1 Peter 1:17-19.

Christmas. Part-Two.

A righteous branch. Jeremiah 23:5.

Jesus the son of David will, has come and reigns wisely. We see that while he was on the earth, throughout the Gospels that he did what was right and fair. He was the perfect human, he did not sin. Now He is in heaven, waiting for the Father to announce his return.

What will you be doing this Season, getting drunk, eating to much,spending money that you have not got? Will you be acting wisely? Will you be taking on right responsibility and caring for those around you, family or stranger? Will you do that for nothing in return?

John 6:47, 1 John 5:20.

But most of all will you try to do your best and believe that Jesus died and rose again for you!
