Wonderful Newness

My Lord, My Friend

freedom

Repentance brings the Miraculous, New Life. Ephesians 2 Verse 1:

“And you were dead in your trespasses and sins”.

Dead to the Empowering Newness, God wants to give to our lives, what we were created for.

More than a sorry, for doing something wrong. More than a sorry for missing the mark, God created us to meet. A sorry because we were dead in our trespasses and sins to God.

God created us with plans for our lives. Jeremiah 29 V 11.

If we were driving a car and put water in the fuel tank, the car would not respond to the manufactures guidelines. Likewise because of the wrong intake into our lives, we are broken vessels because of trespasses and sin.

God can use us for His purpose, because all things are possible with God, Matthew 19 v26;  He used a donkey for His purposes in Numbers 22 v…

Peace That Passes Understanding

My Lord, My Friend

peace

Peace

To be a believer in Jesus doesn’t make us weak or a person looking for a crutch to prop up one life. To be a believer, there are gifts (supernatural) available to us.

Peace John 20:21

Peace be with you, as the Father has sent me, I am sending you.

Jesus is the Prince of Peace and He was giving them His peace. The idea of peace, ‘Shalom’ has a rich Old Testament background. It can simply mean the absence of war, but more often it implies a sense of wholeness and general well being.

For individual believers, peace is a ‘fruit of the Spirit’ in their lives as they rely upon God and live for Him. Clearly this peace Jesus left with us which we experience in our relationship with God is good news for the others too. The good news of the cross of what Jesus…

The Valleys Of Life

My Lord, My Friend

valleys

I have just come out of hospital, after major surgery, for something that I thought I would never get, as a man breast cancer. It has only been just over a month since my beloved wife Anne passed away from, pancreatic cancer. I was confused and even to the point of being dismayed. I searched the scriptures, and it was in Habakkuk, I found a great sense of peace, and the closeness of My Lord and My Friend.

Habakkuk was about when things don’t sense. Habakkuk’s  cry was ‘How long Lord’. how long Lord will you let these things that don’t make sense go on.

Habakkuk was a man with Problems.

Much of the book of Habakkuk is is more like private conversation with God.

God’s sense of timing is different from ours, He always hears our prayer, but that does not mean things will always happen when or even…

Faith In Action ‘Let The Word Transform’

My Lord, My Friend

galatians

Jesus has risen from the dead for us, so lets take the grave clothes off, the throne of Grace is available to us.

To know the scriptures is different from knowing the One who inspired scripture.

From john 3 verses 1 to 16, we learn about Nicodemus. Nicodemus was a Pharisee and teacher of Israel, who came seeking answers. Nicodemus had a deep understanding of scripture, but something he found was missing and the only person that could help was the One who inspired them Jesus.

Nicodemus came to Jesus at night, scared he might be seen, but somehow he knew Jesus had the answers he wanted. the conversation that unfolds, however, reveals to Nicodemus that he is in the dark – the darkness of unknowing. Nicodemus was unable to make the connection between God’s promises and all that he sees in Jesus. Nicodemus though that he knew all he…

Excitement From Book Of 2 Chorincles

My Lord, My Friend

chronicles

The best way to describe  Second Chronicles , is searching for God in a history lesson. The book is about Hope.

Solomon set his sights high. Solomon is given an open promise and he chooses what he needs, rather  than what most pf us probably ask for, fame and fortune. Solomon choice was for wisdom and knowledge.

2 Chronicles 1 verse 10: “Now grant me wisdom and knowledge so that i may lead these people, for who can judge this great people of Yours?”

God answers 2 Chronicles 1 verses 11 and 12:

V12, “wisdom and knowledge are given to you, I will also give you riches, wealth and glory, such that it was not like this for the kings who were before you, nor will it be for those after you,”

Solomon’s sense of responsibly appears from:

A sense of knowing what is right, he is on earth to…

Scripture Verse Of The Week ‘Galatians 3 Verse 26″

My Lord, My Friend

adopted

Galatians 3 verse 26:

“For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus”.

A question some might ask, What happens when we become followers of Jesus?

To become followers we must be willing to admit we are sinners, we have all fallen short of the mark we were created for. Acceptance of Christ Jesus comes through repentance. Genuine repentance for missing the mark.

To Good news starts, We are forgiven without exception. Every sin we have committed no matter what it is, how bad it is, is forgiven in the sight of God. Forgiven in the sight of God, but the world may still require a price to be paid.

Jesus took them all onto Himself, and they were nailed to the cross with Him. They  are forgiven and forgotten by God. We are pure in His eyes. We have been given new life In Christ.

We…

Faith In Action ‘Assurance Of Safety’

My Lord, My Friend

safety

Faith comes with an assurance, assurance of His love, His forgiveness, and New Life in Him.

So here are some scripture verse, to help us all grow in that assurance:

Psalm 3 verse 5:

“I lay down and slept; Yet I woke up in safety, for The Lord was watching over me”.

Each of us needs to accept God’s salvation offer through Christ Jesus for ourselves. the above verse Psalm 3 verse 5, tells we are given individual assurance of safety.

Psalm 91 verse 4 to 7:

V 4: “He will cover you with His feathers; you will take refuge under His wings. His faithfulness will be a protective shield”.

V 5: “You will not fear the terror of the night, the arrow that flies by day”.

V 6: “The plague that stalk in darkness, or the pestilence that ravages at noon”

V 7: “Though thousands fall at your side…

Word’s For Overcoming

My Lord, My Friend

afraid

The most widely spread book, but the most under used, The Bible.

The phrase ‘Do not be afraid is written 365 times in The Bible, one for everyday of the year.

Fear is a dreadful thing, in can stop a person from being the person they were created to be.

‘Do not afraid’, because our creator God loves us dearly. Even though we may think we have done some awful things, His forgiveness is always available to us. John 3 verse 16: Tells of His great love for any ‘whosoever’, and by acceptance of His love, through our repentance, we are changed from a ‘whosoever’ into a member of His Kingdom, where Our Lord and Our Friend is King.

That when His Word, becomes ‘Living Word to us, “Do not be afraid”.

We may be deeply troubled by some circumstances around our lives, remember we have been changed from a…

All About Him

My Lord, My Friend

in us

It is a wonderful experience of seeing somebody, accept Christ Jesus as their Lord, Savior, Redeemer and Friend.  But that experience is just acceptance, of accepting the Gospel message.

The message brings new-life, and the journey begins, with the best Friend, anyone can have.

Colossians 1 verse 27: “God wanted to make known to those among the Gentiles the glorious wealth of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”.

But how can we bring Him glory if we stay stagnant, in the acceptance only experience.

Jeremiah 29 verse 11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you’— this is The Lord’s declaration—’plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope’.”

Plans to grow in our new-life in Him, and not just to stay as new babes In Him. The reality of this new-life In Christ is, we need to…

Who Is Jesus To Us

My Lord, My Friend

mystery

Who is Jesus to us. Can we say the same as The Apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 1 verse 12:

“But I am not ashamed, because I know whom I  have believed and I am persuaded that He is able to guard what has been entrust to me, until that day”.

There is a great deal of mystery in life, and simply accepting this is better than striving to find explanation. But the question of Who is Jesus to us, needs to become Truth to us.

In Matthew 16 verses 13 to 20: Is the story of Peter’s confession.

V 13: Jesus asks His disciples, Who do people  say that I Am. There were several expressions of Who He was that were given, but with that question. the disciples were most likely questioning themselves to.

v 16: Peter gives the answer: “You are the Messiah, the Son of The Living…
