Waiting. Part-One.

Don’t give up!

The waiting game is a hard place to be for all of us, it could be the parcel in the post or the email that is the answer to a job, a date, a refund. We could be waiting for blood results from the hospital, a letter from the GP, a Job interview.

The time to us seems longer than it actually is, this was the same with the Disciples. They had to wait for His resurrection and then to see Him and then when He left the stay in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit to be poured out.

We must learn to wait on God and not give up, because Jesus always has the best for us.

1 Chronicles 23:8,  Psalm 27:14,  37:34,  Proverbs 20:22,  Romans 8:25.

Walking with the Holy Spirit. Part-One.

Living and Walking.

When we were once part of the world, we lived as the world did. We did not know or recognise God, as we do now.

So now that we do know God, as our Father and Jesus as our friend and Saviour we do not need to continue on as we once did.

We tend to forget that we too can walk with the Holy Spirit, who is the third person of the Trinity.

Romans 8:4-5,  Galations 5:15-16,  1 Peter 1:22,   Jude 1:19-21.

Crises. Part-One.

Crises and Uprisings.

We live in a world that is always changing, wither it is weather, storms or revoloution and wars. We will be suprised in our lives by new crises far and near. Europe in changing, it has been a very long time since we have seen a huge war.

At one time there were dozens of conflicts occuring across Europe and the Empires of Europe, men were callled to go here, there and everywhere to fight from all nations.

Eastern-Europe has changed and this process will continue, but beware, do not get into the comfort-zone of thinking is will not happen in the western parts.

This is our time to seek the Lord, to be in our hearts and to be secure in knowing he will forgive us and help us to have a new future.

Joshua 10:25,  Psalm 17:4,  Luke 12:17-18,   Acts 13,  26:18,  Hebrews 13:6.

Terrorism. Part-Two.

‘Dark Forces.

People who are angry and not heard as we saw recently in Norway are right across Europe and the world. As Christians in politics we do so need to encourage everyone with their grievences to be heard and not ignored.

Sometimes what we will hear we disgust us, but hear it will help to heal any wounds that left festering as we should know will lead to a conflict. Jesus was not political, but when shown a coin, said ‘Give to Ceaser what is his and then give to God.

We need to learn to respect those in authority both in the government and in the ekklesia.

Mark 12:14-17,  Romans 13:1-7,  Titus 3:1, 1 Peter 2:13-17.

Celtic Saints. Part-Two.

St. David. March 1st.

We know very little about who Dawi Sant was? He was believed to have been born around 500AD in Caerfai, Pembrokeshire and died in 589AD. He was probably converted by an Irish missionary team, who arrived off south-west Wales 10-20 years after the death of Saint Patrick. The endeavour to reach the western parts of Britain were well underway by now.

David was canonized by Pope Calixtus in 1123AD. David may have been more than one person, who worked very hard in a very hostile environment to preach and teach. He is remembered by his famous words ( Gwnewch y pethau by chain) ‘Do the little things.’ It is claimed that St. David made pilgrimages to Rome and Jerusalem, but this is unlikely since the Celtic Church was hostile to Papal interferences.

A Cathedral in Saint Davids and a small church near by Glyn Rhosyn are attributed to him, while a stained glass window in  Clonard, Ireland records him as being the teacher of St. Finnian. Isaiah 61:10, Revelation 14:2, Psalm 23:4, 1 Timothy 4:8, Proverbs 30:24.
