Being lifted Up. One.

Encouraged to Persevere?

One can not say that to have faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus will make us friends of the world? We may be called to serve in the world, but we must never think that Gods ways will be tolerated by the lost!

Everyday Christians are under strains from the daily pressures of life and this can be the same wither we are married, single of celibate. At times it can become unbearable, that we give in and compromise, but thank God we can repent and ask for Jesus forgiveness and get back on track once more!

As believers we have a Spiritual armoury, not of weapons that world uses to kill each other, but to counter all those arguments, questions, jeering and rejection that the world throws at us in their attempt to undermine the power of God!

Happy New Year?

Hope.

We all want to start off this New Year with hope for many things, family, education, work, friends, parents? There is nothing wrong with having hope like that, even in business and in religious affaires?

But it is even better to have hope in God-Jesus to know where we are with Him in relation to Eternity and our Salvation! To be free from legalistic religion and ritualism based on traditions, which have nothing to do with the Bible?

1 Thessalonian 1:9-10,  Job 35:10-12,  Romans 8:24-25.

Revenge. Part-One.

Human Nature.

When we are angered, when we see people, family, friends the natural kicks in and we want to take revenge. The world is full of terror and murder, revenge in Mexico, Italy by gangsters. The Middle-East and Africa by terrorists and what is termed militants.

Being a believer in Jesus we are warned this is not for us, God will avenge for us and he will do a better job at it. If we do slip we will open ourselves up to problems, problems that will not leave us alone.

Proverbs 17:13,  Psalm 35:12,  Proverbs 13:21,  Hebrews 10:30.

Doing a Good Turn.

An Example.

Would yo put yourself out for another person, a neighbour, a friend, a stranger, your family? In some of these cases you probably would, unless you are to mean.

Jesus left us an example of washing feet, for us to continue. There have been many takes on it since, by various ‘Churches. Some modern adaptions are the polishing of shoes, but I like the original one.

It is a hard place to take off the shoes of your friend, even harder their socks or stockings. Feet can be really smelly, sweaty and may have bunnions and other nasty sores. Then you have to wash them! Jesus did it as a gesture to His Disciples, because they had travelled three years with Him and now He was leaving them fir the Cross/stake.

John 13:3-14.
