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.

Jesus First. Part-Three.

Enquiring with wrong motives.

There are many people today who will seek after Jesus, believing God will accept them their way. They attend meetings, take the free launch, even seek a shelter and make many nice comments.

But the reallity in their own hearts and minds is full of selfishness and they want God to fit in their pocket, rather than fitting in His. They have deluded themselves with a fantasy Jesus, one perhaps seen in the movies or from some childhood understanding they thought.

We see that when the Magi arrived from following the star, they went to the logical place to find the King of Israel the palace in jerusalem. There they met King Herod who enquired he too wanted to meet this speacial child.

But his intentions were to lash out and murder evey chld from baby yo two year-old to save his power base.

Matthew 2:1-11,  Genesis 35:16-20,  Jeremiah 31:15,  Matthew 2:16-18.

Being Single. Part-Three.

Right Attitude.

The Apostle Paul was very wise in this subject, some people find his letters in the New Testament of the bible difficult to understand or they feel he is being contradictory.

This is not so and far from the truth, what he is saying to us is ‘I would like you to be single, as I am, but if you fall in love do the right thing and get married. But if you choose not to get married that is fine to as long as the other side is not hurt.

Basically don’t be single or get married with a selfish heart, attitude. Do not allow sin to enter your choice.

1 Corinthians 7:32,  35-36,  Psalm 55:22.

Remembrance Sunday. Part-Two.

Remembrance Sunday not just for Britain.

Many thousands of Commonwealth and allied troops and resistors died fighting in a coalition against Nazi-Germany and Imperial Japan. Jesus tells us that war is an inevitable fact of human history and his followers should not worry. Mark 13:7.

Humanity is stained by Sin and the heart is selfish, nations do go to war, so do people who row and argue end up in fights, which sometimes leads to murder. Romans 3:23, 6:23.

Jesus warns us in Mark 13 that the Judgment Day of the Father will come at the end and we need to know where we will be standing on that day?
John 3:16-21, Acts 4:12.
