HOW CAN IT BE?

Posted:  Sunday, 14 September 2014 17:09 Written by
Many of us have sat under years of teaching on the scriptures. Personally I love going deep but depth and knowledge in itself is powerless to change us. We can know all things and yet believe the worst about ourselves and others. In these last months...in the midst of troubles and trials...my thoughts have been consistently brought back to what has been my anchor in such times. My truth is everyone's truth. My truth is the absolute unconditional love my God has for me. I can quickly beat myself up but then I am reminded how God feels about me...His…

HOW CAN GOD LOVE A SINNER LIKE ME?

  Have you ever wondered why on earth God would love us? We all know scripture says God loves us, but why? It certainly can't be because we have not sinned or because our behaviours and attitudes have been so righteous. What is it about us that would cause God to love us so deeply even before we knew Him....1 John 4:19 "We love Him, because He first loved us." How often have I heard someone say, "I have done too many bad things for God to love me." If you struggle with rejection as I have....your expectation is that…

In Mark 1:15 we read..."And saying, The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled (completed), and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent (have a change of mind which issues in regret for past sins and in change of conduct for the better) and believe (trust in, rely on, and adhere to) the good news (the Gospel)". Funny thing about repentance...it is thought of more as dealing with past sins rather then an invitation into the future. Matthew 4:17 says it this way..."From that time Jesus began to preach,crying out, Repent (change your mind for the better, heartily amend your…

I NEVER KNEW YOU.

  Can you imagine...spending the better part of your life serving the church...being a deacon for two terms...in the choir for years and so on...and then at the end of your days you come before the Lord and He says "get away from me, I never knew you". In Matthew 7:21-23 we read"Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons…

THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME!

THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME. “Now Jesus Himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his [hometown]”. Jn 4:44Our entire life is lived out of a thought. Well...thoughts to be exact...thoughts that revolve around who we think we are. These thoughts are like a home we live in. One single judgment of ourselves can affect the entire course of our lives and the lives of those around us. Most of us have many varying judgments of ourselves. These judgments change based on whether we feel safe or triggered by people and events around us. Much like…
