Trustworthy

2 Timothy: Chapter 2 verse 11

Here is a trustworthy saying:

If we died with Him,

we will also live with Him.

*

When we invite Jesus into our lives, we become new creatures in Christ.

Our old selves have died and we become one with Him.

 Therefore praise The Lord we do live with Him today also forever and ever.  Amen.

*

From the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

Well – what do you think?  Is it better to live with Jesus or not to have Him in your life?

This is a decision that only you can make, I can’t make it for you nor can anyone else.  It is a personal matter but one that needs to be taken seriously because if you invite Jesus into your life then I believe you must accept the Holy Bible and all that is written in it.

It does say that a man shall leave his Mother and Father and cleave to his wife and they shall be one.  Then they are to go forth and multiply, only a man and woman can achieve this.  Even the animals need a male and a female to reproduce.  Everything is ordered in the Bible to produce after their own kind, every seed shall bear fruit of the same kind i.e. an Oak Tree seed ( that is an acorn) cannot grow as an apple tree.

There is no reason why two men or two women cannot love one another because we are commanded to Love one another but a marriage cannot take place with two people of the same sex, because they cannot go forth and multiply, so it is an ungodly union to ask to be married as stated in the Holy Bible.

No one can deny that they cannot live together as friends and lovers it is up to their decision to do so.  Maybe there could be a different definition of their union to make it legal as they want to benefit from the government gratuities  that married couples receive.  They also want to be recognized having an official ceremony to declare their oath to one another and be accepted by the world.

So what could the official and legal ceremony be named as they should not be married in a Church because it is against the teaching of the Holy Bible.

A Legal Civil Ceremony could take place to show the world that they are dedicated to each other so that it would be a legal and binding oath to have and to hold until death they do part.   Maybe come under the title of Life Partners which therefore would include which ever sex they are.

Also this would free all Churches to not have to worry about them being accepted and married in the Church of God.

Jesus is Lord

May God Bless you today and always.

Have a lovely Day.

*Do Something Nice today *

1 Corinthians: Chapter 15 verse 58.

Therefore,

my dear brothers,

stand firm.

 Let nothing move you.

 Always give yourselves fully

to the work of The Lord,

because you know

that your labour in The Lord

is not in vain.

***

Our labour in The Lord is definitely not in vain.

He sees all the things that we do for Him.

Everything is recorded of our works.

So today maybe we could do something nice for The Lord Jesus.

***

From  the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.

So what then is our labour in The Lord?  I believe it is mostly to keep the Ten Commandments that were given all those years ago to Moses.  Well, some people think that we do not need to read the Old Testament in the Bible but we do need to heed what it says.

If you have never read the Old Testament feel free to give it a go.

You may be surprised and learn something new each day.  You only need to read a bit each day, it’s no good just reading it if you cannot digest what it is saying and just reading for the sake of saying that you have read it.  Take your time and just read a few verses at a time so that  you can understand more fully what those verses really mean.  There is no hurry and just a few minutes at the same time each day will make a lot of difference.

So to do something nice today – would be perhaps to get up and go for a walk and say ‘Hello’ to someone.  Or to visit someone you know who has not been able to go out for a while.  We can take a little gift, perhaps a posy of Flowers, a packet of Biscuits to stay and have a cuppa with them.  If you have made extra cake or cakes, someone may appreciate your visit if you take some to them.

We don’t always have to stay and talk – just deliver your gift to them at the door and say * God Bless * to them.

That I believe – is  also working or doing something for the Lord Jesus.

We can’t all be in the limelight doing great things but I am sure that The Lord acknowledges our efforts to help our families and friends.  

One of the Commands is to Love our Neighbours as ourselves…….a bit difficult sometimes but never the less it is a Commandment that we should think about…..well you may ask who is my neighbour?  Just the normal people we meet each and every day, I think that they are our neighbours in this world.

* May God Bless Us Today

as We Stand Firm

to do the Work of The Lord *

What about The Spirit

Luke: Chapter 4 verses 18-19

“The Spirit of The Lord is on me,

 because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor,

He has sent me to proclaim freedom

for the prisoners

and recovery of sight for the blind,

to release the oppressed,

to proclaim the year of The Lord’s favour”

*

Today we can proclaim the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ.

 Praise Him that He will anoint us to do so.

 Let us ask for His special anointing of The Holy Spirit afresh today.

From the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

*

The above Scripture was spoken by Jesus but we should remember that He has asked us also to tell people about Him.  To proclaim the Gospel of the Lord is to let others know about our Lord Jesus, about God our Heavenly Father and about The Holy Spirit.      We should not  be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ because as it is written in the Holy Bible – the Gospel is to be preached throughout the world before Jesus comes back again.

As Christians we know this but really speaking we rarely talk about the Lord to our friends, family or workmates.  Why are we hesitant  to do this?

Mainly because we do not like being ridiculed but Jesus said that we as Christians will be made to look foolish sometimes when we talk about Him to unbelievers……..But how are they going to know if we do not speak out the truth so that they too came come into Salvation before they leave this earth.

All we have to do is to plant the seed of the faith that we have and tell them what we believe and The Holy Spirit may even convict them of His Presence.

A friend and I talked a long time ago and we agreed with each other that once you have lived with The Holy Spirit in your life you would never want to live without Him.

Jesus sent Him to be our Comforter, our Guide in our everyday living – He is the Spirit of Jesus –  we need no other Spirit to Guide us.  He is with us forever when we invite Jesus into our heart – that is into our life – 

And do you know that our God (Our Father in Heaven) loves us and He never sleeps – He will hear us when we pray day or night where ever we are.  So Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to help us to Pray.

Why not give Jesus a go if you have not already done so.

He is just waiting to hear from you.

 If you have never thought of asking Jesus to be in your life, now is a good time to ask Him if He would like to be part of your life – you may be surprised that He would say yes if you would like to have Him.  You need to mean it though, we cannot be flippant as it is quite an important step to take, because then you would be a Christian and belong to the Kingdom of God.  What an honour that would be.

* Have a lovely Day today *

This is the Day !

This is the Day that The Lord has made

Let us Rejoice and be glad in it.

***

Psalm: 19 verse 1

The heavens declare the Glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

*

Yes LORD the heavens do declare your Glory and in the skies we can see the work of your hands.
Today let us declare the work of God.

The wonders that God has already done in our lives.

Let us say to our friends and neighbours Praise The LORD !

The above is taken from the Book “Drink from the Cup” by J.M.R.Larman.

*

Soar into the Heavenly Realms like an Eagle on wings of Prayer.

The Eagle is an ‘Oil Painting’ by J.M.R.Larman

*

Sometimes it is hard for us to Praise The Lord for the day, when we are overwhelmed by the circumstances that we are sometime living in.  But we need to stop and think even for a moment of the good things that God our Heavenly Father has given to us.  Also for the things that He has done for us.

We can pray and thank Him for maybe our health, our family, our finances, our home, our food, our clothing, our friends.  Even – we can thank Him for the weather, maybe it is too hot or too cold, too windy, too wet whatever it is it is not going to be perfect how we would like it.  However God is in charge of all these things and we need to remember that he allows us to be where we are most times because of our choosing as He has given us free will and will not use us a puppet’s.  

Remember we have a choice to make – shall we or shan’t we do this or that?

 Well as Christians we are to pray – to ask first if it is God’s will what we should do or say, especially in difficult circumstances.

We need to stop and remember 

‘This is the Day that The Lord has made”

So therefore maybe we can at some stage in the day – rejoice and be glad in it (in the day I mean) !

May God our Heavenly Father Bless us today

as we walk with Jesus and His Holy Spirit.

God Bless You.

Let your Light Shine !

Luke: Chapter 8 verses 16-17

No-one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar

or

puts it under a  bed.

Instead, they put it on a stand,

so that those who come in can see a light.

For there is nothing hidden that will not  be disclosed

and nothing concealed

that will not be known

or brought out into the open.

*

So therefore Jesus said in Matthew: Chapter 5 verse 14.

* You are the Light of the world *

*

What do you think of that then?  As Christians we really are the light in the World.  With The Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ our Lord in us we can spread the Light of the World. 

We are not to hide our Light under a bushel, under a bed, under anything at all, we have to let our light shine whether people like it or not.

So how do we do that then?

Well – if we have any sort of talent we are to use it for the Glory of God our Heavenly Father.

He has given us our talents – it maybe cooking, hospitality, knitting, woodwork, painting, all kinds of artist talents, gardening, writing etc., as well as whatever employment we are involved in to support our family and ourselves.

Also helping others, encouraging others, especially our family, friends and our Church Congregation.  Volunteering is another talent we can use in our community so that people will be blessed.

Remember that as you bless others – you too will be blessed.

 Blessing others – that is giving God Glory.

Also thank Him that He enables you to use the Talents that He has given you.

How much nicer it is to do any of the above with a smile and a willing heart.

 That really will be letting our Light Shine for The Lord.

*  I pray that God our Heavenly Father will Bless you today with the Love of Jesus *

Have a lovely Day.

God hear’s us (you and me) !!!

Psalm 55 verse 22

Cast your cares on The LORD

and

He will sustain you;

He will never let the righteous fall.

*

Isn’t that marvellous, that our God will sustain us!

Whatever our circumstance,

being righteous in Jesus Christ –

when we call on God He does hear us.

From the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

*

Do you know that God does hear our Prayers.  To be sure that He hears them we do need to have Jesus in our heart as our Lord and Saviour.  So we then can Pray straight to God our Heavenly Father.  When we are learning to pray – a good Prayer is The Lord’s Prayer.  If we are a new Christian and not sure what to pray this is a good one to learn.

This is the Prayer that Jesus taught His Disciples to pray and it really covers every thing that we need.

Of course we can pray for anything at anytime and as long as it is within God’s Will He will allow it for us to come into being.  Maybe not straight away and that is when we start to doubt whether He has heard our prayer.  You see sometimes it is not good for us to have everything we want just when we want it.

When we were a child we had to wait until we were old enough to have certain things or to go to certain places maybe on our own and our Parent would say ( ‘no’ you have to wait)  Well God is our Heavenly Father and He knows what is best for us and He cares for us.  In whatever circumstance’s we find ourselves it is good to know that He cares about us and loves us and will provide for us at  the right time.

It is good to know that we have a God of Love who cares for us and our families.

We do need to Pray for our loved ones so they can also be  blessed.

* God Bless you – have a Lovely Day today *

Our Soul is Precious

This is a Painting of  a lovely peaceful Farm over looking the distant hills.

I pray that you find peace and love in God our Heavenly Father today.

Psalm 62 verse 1

My soul finds rest in God alone;

my salvation comes from Him.

*

When I sit and pray, do you know, my soul does find rest in God.

I pray that you find rest in God today.

We do know that our salvation comes from Him.

 God does love our souls to be at rest in Him,

whether we are at work,

play or in prayer.

 So today let us be at rest in God as we get on with our daily tasks etc.,

Taken from Book:  ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.

Well there we are then now we know what to do when we get stressed out !……yes, just sit for a while quietly and tell God our Heavenly Father what the matter is.  He can hear us you know, Jesus knows our thoughts and He sent The Holy Spirit to Comfort us .  However, unless we sit and tell God what is troubling us The Holy Spirit will not be able to comfort us.  We usually go on in our own sweet way thinking things will get better in a minute and are quite surprised that they don’t.  Well – what about stopping for a moment and telling God that we need help.

The Shortest Prayer that I know or can say when all seems to fail is:-………………Please Help me God………..

Be honest and say that you can’t do whatever you need to do on your own, tell Him the problem, it does not matter what the problem is He may not help unless you ask him to.

God our Heavenly Father has given us free will to choose to ask or not to ask – so it is up to us – if we would like His help or not.

So we can stay stressed out or Pray that God will help us and allow The Holy Spirit to comfort us in any kind of need that we are in.    As Christians we know that through Jesus we can pray straight to God our Father, no need to pray through Mary or any of the saintswe have a hot line or phone line to God.

Give it a try if you are a Christian……and you can only be a Christian if you have invited Jesus Christ our Lord into your life (into your heart) as some people say.

So if you are not a Christian reading this you may like to give it a go

with Jesus –  God’s Son.

*

I pray that you have a lovely Day today and that any Stress that is with you will start to dissipate any minute.

May God Bless You and your loved ones today.

Beauty

Psalm 93 verse 1

The LORD reigns,

He is robed in majesty;

The LORD is robed in majesty

and is armed with strength.

*

To see you in your majesty LORD would be wonderful,

while we live on this earth we can only imagine your glory,

with angels around you crying holy,holy,holy.

Although you are mighty in majesty,

you are our strength, 

those of us who belong to you through Jesus Christ our Lord,

praise you LORD God in your beauty and majesty.

From: ‘Drink from the Cup’ Book. By: J. M. R. Larman.

***

                      

Have you ever thought about the Angels being around the throne of God our Heavenly Father.

They must be very beautiful.

No eye has ever seen the Glory of God.

However we can experience His Glory of peace, love, joy, also contentment.

They must surely be part of His Glory.

The beauty of the Universe, the sky, the sea, all living creatures – are surely part of His Glory.

Let us take time to appreciate the creation of this earth, our families, our friends, the butterflies, the birds, the new born babies of all species including us human beings.

As for us we were born in the likeness of God i.e. the likeness of Jesus, not in the likeness of Monkey’s or Apes.

So let us think that sometimes the Glory of God can be around us in the Sunsets, the Moon Light, also in our everyday lives – then we can Praise God for all His Blessings towards us.

“Ungodly Desires”

This Angel is a Pencil Drawing – by Jessie Larman

*

Jude: Chapter 1 verses 17-18

 But, dear friends,

remember what the apostles

of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.

 They said to you,

“In the last times there will be scoffers

who will follow their own

ungodly desires

***

Today, maybe we can try to follow Godly desires a bit better.

It may be difficult sometimes

but I for one do not want to be a scoffer

nor do I want to do ungodly things.

If you are a Christian you will be feeling the same way,

God will bless us for trying, that we do know.

Taken from Book: Drink from the Cup. Author J.M.R. Larman.

***

*** 

Do you realize that when we find it difficult not to sin

– we do really have a direct line to God

our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The quickest Prayer that I know is:-

  “Help Lord”

To Scoff at someone is to belittle them

or to mock them or to speak derisively,

especially about religion

or to taunt someone making them a laughing stock

to friends or people who may be listening.

***

Let us not stoop to some of these UNGODLY DESIRES !

* May God Bless you today

Love of The Lord Jesus *

WE CAN

cvon-sunset

2 Corinthians Chapter 2 verse 10

Godly sorrow brings repentance

that leads to salvation

and leaves no regret

but worldly sorrow brings death.

***

When we truly repent our hearts can sing because we know that we are forgiven, that we will definitely try not to offend God in the way that we used to.              Godly sorrow is good because although we can be sad about the circumstance that has arisen we are blessed so much when we take hold of the fact that Jesus has forgiven us and that our sin is blotted out from Our Father in Heaven.  In worldly sorrow there can be no joy, in Godly sorrow Jesus rejoices that we repent and grants us peace in our hearts.

From the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.

This was going to be a Poem……but never mind, I hope you like what is written. It is called:

                                WE CAN

We are in this world of sin – We do not have to take part in it

We have been given a conscience – We can choose to do right or to sin

We can do all lovely things – We can sing and dance

We can eat and drink – We can love or not love

We can swim or drown – We can walk or run

We can write or draw – We can choose what we want

We can help others or not help – We can do all these things

We can do so much in this world – We can do good things instead of bad

We can decide not to sin – We can use our brain to decide

We can use our heart to discern – We can love The Lord our God

We can love each other – We can therefore have no need to sin.

***
