A RIGHTEOUS NATION

"Godliness makes a nation great, but sin is a disgrace to any people" (Pro 14 v 34 NLT)

At this time of national election all kinds of words are being spoken; some truth, some untruth, some mixed. Unfortunately politics by its very nature is flawed, where decisions are made most often because they are "politically expedient" and not because they are "right in the eyes of God". The Bible is God's Word and is the only true manifesto. All other manifestos must line up with the Bible, must be subservient to it, otherwise they are misguided. It does not matter what society thinks, or what lobbying groups say, or what any individual candidate proposes. It matters only what the BIble says, as it contains the knowledge of "all things that pertain to life and godliness" (2 Pet 1 v 3). All candidates who are sincere no doubt want to see the nation prosper, and truly become "great" Britain. But the Bible is crystal clear about the only way that this can be achieved, and that is through GODLINESS. And godliness means to be holy like God, which can only be reached through repenting of our sin, receiving God's Spirit and obeying God's Word.

How's that for a "political statement"!!

The Wonder Of Children

Children are amazing are they not?! This past week running a childrens' Holiday Club taught me a valuable lesson, as I watched the children listen with wide eyes at the stories of Jesus. As Christians we can easily forget how amazing these stories are, and of course they are all true. Jesus did indeed speak to a storm which stilled, he healed his enemy's servant, and he rose up from the dead. Innocence was lost in the Garden Of Eden, or as John Milton put it "Paradise Lost". The knowledge we now have of good and evil does not sit comfortably with mankind. Better for us not to know evil or sin at all. As the Bible says, "It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret". Listening to the overwhlemingly bad news day after day about all the terrible things in the world can corrupt our minds and steak away our joy. As the Bible says in Phi 4v8:

"whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things."

THE GREATEST ACT OF FAITH

What have you done in life which shows you have faith? Actually we show faith almost continually when you think about it. Driving your car and trusting your brakes will work, sitting on a chair and trusting it won't collapse, walking across a road when the green man flashes trusting nobody will knock you down, putting money into the bank, leaving your child at nursery, and on and on. We exercise faith so often that it is peculiar when people respond to the question "do you have faith?" by saying "no not much really". Everyone has FAITH, it's just a matter of WHAT we put our faith in. 

When Jesus lived on earth He put His faith in God His Father 100%, and when He gave His life on the cross this was the greatest act of faith ever. Jesus placed His life in God's hands believing that God would raise Him from the dead, and of course that is exactly what God did. You see, what is important is not HOW MUCH faith we have, but WHO we put our faith in. If you have a little faith in thick ice then you will ok when you skate, but if you have great faith in thin ice then your faith won't save you from drowning! God is like thick ice, dependable and true. Put your FAITH in Him completely, and He will never let you down.

3 Hours Of Darkness

The Bible says that Jesus hung on the cross between noon and 3pm, and during that time the land was covered in darkness. The symbolism is obvious as Jesus bore on his frame all the sin of the world from the beginning to the end of time. The Bible gives no further description of what Jesus went through, of what torment was visited upon him as he carried this sin. We only catch a glimpse when he cries out "my God my God why have you forsaken me?". If you have ever been alone, in a dark place in life, abandoned by others, bearing a heavy load, then Jesus knows what you are going through because he went through even worse. That is why we can speak to him about our troubles and know that he knows and cares.

Have you trials and temptations? Cumbered with a load of care? Jesus knows our every weakness. Take it to the Lord in prayer

MIRACLE STORIES

How exciting it was last night to hear first hand accounts of God working miracles in people's lives. Stories of God providing finances, healing physical conditions, and transforming people's lives by the power of God's Spirit. It's so easy to be sceptical, especially in our Western Society, but I would rather have faith than doubt. The Bible says love always trusts, and I choose to trust that God is indeed at work today. If you have a testimony or personal story why not email it to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and let everyone be blessed. 

We have all been given a measure of faith, which can grow or shrink depending on whether we use it or not. Doubt reduces its size, but belief increases it. SO believe in God and see miracles today!
