Being you in service

For they will know you by the “fruits” that you bear. How well do your actions line up with your ‘witness’. When you look at the way you have treated people through out the day, do you feel as if you have been a light by your words and actions? Would those same people when they look back on the day, agree with you? We are the body of Christ. As with our own bodies, not every part has the same function, it doesn’t mean that we aren’t doing the job. It means we were called to a different job. Do you criticise your neighbor for not going out and shouting from the rooftops about Christ? We weren’t all called to be sheperds or ministers. If we had been, then there would be no flock for those to lead or encourage to go out into the fields and harvest. Don’t feel down because you find it difficult to go out and verbally witness to people; perhaps your witness is in your actions. The way you speak, the way you serve, the way you give to others. Be proud of what God has given you. If you still find yourself ‘unsure’ of your own gifts, then seek Gods guidance. His word states, that if we seek, we will find. Stand firm in this knowledge and be the best person you...

Praying for our nation and ourselves

“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 You may be familiar with this verse of scripture. Or if you weren’t previously familiar with it, you may have recently heard it. During last year and into this year, this verse has come into many people’s email as a reminder of what we need to do. As if this hasn’t been said enough, prayer does change things. When we go before the throne of God with humble hearts and seek him, He does hear our cry. When we bow before him in simple submission and seek Him, He is found. God loves us. He loves His children. His creation. He loves us with a full, deep love. A Father who cares for His children. Even when we don’t deserve His love, He loves us. Yet, our God is a jealous God. Even in His jealously, He has given us free will. He knows that we will sin. That we will fall short. He knows that when we do, that some of us will not call out to Him. Yet, He stands ever ready to answer our call if we will be willing to ask for...

The ‘Circle Series’ by Ted Dekker

Ted Dekker is not your ‘conventional’ Christian author. If you are used to reading ‘traditional’ Christian novels, then it may take a little bit of adjustment to get used to his style. I have read Black, White, Red and look forward to reading Green. These books are a unique approach to the spiritual view of the way life is perceived. In some ways it is a ‘what if’ the world were different. Ted offers a easy flow for the reader as you move between the two worlds. The story line is very creative and unique in its writing. It was this book that opened the door for my reading other Ted Dekker Books. Black Red White Green The Circle Series – All Four...

Prayer

Father, I thank you for your goodness and mercy. For showing us your love every day. I thank you that you have called your people to you. To worship and praise you, to give us an opportunity to say thank you for your mercies every morning. Lord, I pray for those who are broken hearted. Those who have been emotionally hurt and feel that there is no one out there to love and care for them. I ask you to wrap your wings of love around them. To hold them tenderly and let them know that they are cared for. That you care for them. I ask that you send someone to them, to touch their lives and show them joy. Let our light shine so that others may know You through us. We thank you for your compassion that is new every morning. In Jesus name we pray,...

Thought for Today…

I love the Lord for He heard MY cry. (Psalm 40:1).  How many times do we go through our day without remembering to thank God for the things He has done for us?  In our fast food society, it is easy to “forget” that God blesses us each day with the air we breathe.  Not only can we see this great Artist at work in the beauty of the sunrise and the sunset, but in the sky itself during the day.  Yet we forget that these small gifts are from Him too. We want the big things and we want them now.  When we are sick, we want healing.  When we are lonely, we want comfort.  When we are depressed, we want reassurance. The truth is, God does all these things for us, but we forget that often it’s in the small things that He reveals himself.  We are too busy searching the heavens for some thunderbolt to strike us: we don’t thank Him for these little things. How can God give us more, when we fail with the little things?  “To whom much is given, much is required.” (Luke 12:48).  We want much but not the responsibility it brings with us. Perhaps today is the day that we should all start remembering that God is in the everyday, ordinary things, as well as the extraordinary.  He is the...
