Thought for today...


His Love is...

New every morning is love, fresh as the dew that fills the earth.

Warm as the sunlight that shines overhead.

New every morning is His mercies.

When through the night our soul is troubled, and it is as is the darkness has no end then be lifted up, fear not.

Rise with the sun, and know in your heart that the Lord, He loves you.

Come along and sing a song. Trust in Him who's worth the trust, with our heads held high, we will take what comes, and smile to feel the warmth of His love again.

A crisis is not make you or break you, but it reveals our true character.

"Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me." John 14:1

Discouragement is a temptation common to man.
1Corinthians 10:13

Discouragement can and does consume a lot of our time; and can/does keep us from doing what we need to do because we don’t want to face it.

Don't be Discouraged look to Him for that encouragement to get back on the right track and in the right mindset. 

New every morning is His Love!

"The Lord Thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing." Zephaniah 3:17

That I may know Him....


"That I may know Him,..." Philippians 3:10a

When Paul wrote these words he had known Christ already for thirty years, and was a spiritually mature believer.

"Many people flatter themselves that they are going to be saved because they know a great deal about Jesus Christ. But mere knowledge about Him will not ave. Noah's carpenters probably knew as much about the ark as Noah did, and perhaps more. They knew that the Ark was strong; they knew that it was built to stand the deluge; they knew that it was made to float upon the waters; they had helped build it. Yet they were as helpless when the flood came as men who lived thousands of miles away." -D.L. Moody-

The Cross is no longer the event of a mere time and date, but the making in History of that which was in the heart of God.

Jesus is the God- Man Christ and Saviour who is "before all things" and in all things, visible and invisible on earth and in the Heavens. Jesus Christ is the Centre-Mind of the Whole universe. His cross has a reconciling reach throughout all the immeasurable, boundless areas of created existence. Time itself can not contain this illimitable Christ.

He belongs to the infinities and eternities, He grows bigger and bigger, and goes farther and farther, yet losses none of His real, divine-human personality, individuality, sympathy. The cool thing here is called a paradox and that is the bigger, higher and further He seems, the nearer clearer and dearer He become to the human heart.
That is why out of Hunger Paul said "that I may know Him." it is an unfolding of revelation and enjoyment that those who commune with Him would understand.

"O Christ, Thou art the Fountain, The deep, sweet well of Love; the streams on the earth I've tasted; More deep I'll drink from above. There, to an ocean's fullness, Thy love and grace expand; Where glory, glory dwelleth, in Emmanuel's land!"

This wonderful Christ is far bigger than all of our powers of imagination. Our personal sympathetic companion, the All n All of each individual. 

For me I'm learning that the more i give to study, the more i know, but there is more beyond that which i do not know. Each new knowing opens up a vast stretch of the unknown.

We are to know Him more and more, here on earth.
O that I may know Him, even as Paul did. There is nothing greater than striving to make that goal, that thing which God had laid upon each one of our individuals heart.

A Quote to Consider....

 A Quote to Consider

"...the Bible is  not simply a manual for understanding things of spiritual nature. It's earthier than that. It provides us with a comprehensive framework for understanding all of reality. It presents an entire worldview, a complete perspective on all of life. It supplies us with an overarching explanation of where we came from (creation), and what is wrong with us and the world we live in (fall), and what is the solution to the problem, or how the world can be set right again (redemption). The Bible is, said John Calvin, the "spectacles" by which Christians are to see, interpret, and understand everything from poetry to politics, from sports to science, from law to leisure.

With the Bible serving us in this way, Christians are equipped to engage every arena of our culture, every sector of our society, in a distinctively Christian way. Being a Christian involves thoughtful, Bible-based cultural analysis and cultural engagement on all levels. How does God want us to think about things like justice, legislation, the environment, and education? How does God intend for us to engage all these areas in a God-centered transformative way? In other words, we must have "a theology" about everything under the sun. Seriously! God requires that from us."
