Accused of being a Christian
Accused of being a Christian?
If someone accused you of being aChristian
would there be enough evidence
to prove that you are one?
Don’t be offended by the above, think quietly a moment to understand what it means. i.e. is there enough evidence in our every day living to show that we belong to Gods Kingdom?
Do we speak and act lovingly towards others each day, not just when we feel like it!
What evidence can we show today?
Can we forgive?
Are we walking in truth and righteousness?
The above is taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’
Well that certainly gives us something to think about dosn’t it?
Mostly as Christians we think that we do pretty good but when we actually sit quietly and think about it, what do we really see.
How do we think that others observe us? How do we observe them? i.e. our friends – our neighbours – our Church friends – our Congregations – our families – our work mates.
We are not to judge others that is our Father in Heaven’s job to do that but we can look and see – then we may see our own shortcomings.
Oh! Dear,,,,, what do we see. …. are we walking in righteousness and truth, have we forgiven whoever we need to have forgiven, are we using swere words, are we listening to The Holy Spirit?……..not to the unholy one.
Looks like we do have a fair bit to consider – then it is really nice if someone does accuse us of being a Christian, that would be a blessing indeed.
John Chapter 14 verse 6
I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.
So to be a Christian (if you are not one) all you have to do is ask Jesus to come into your life, repent of your sins and He will be with you forever, including The Holy Spirit also God (Jesus Father in Heaven).
Then let a Christian know that you too belong to The Kingdom of God.
And Look forward to being accused of being a Christian.!!!
It is a privilege to be a Christian.
* God Bless and keep you
in His Love
Worship The LORD
Psalm 96 verse 9
Worship The LORD
in the splendour of His holiness;
tremble before Him,
all the earth.
How can we ever imagine the spendour of His holiness: He must be so beautiful surrounded by glory and angels, singing and serving Him in Heaven.
No wonder the whole earth shall tremble before Him.
And yet He has given to us His Son Jesus, who intercedes for those of us who have accepted Jesus as our Saviour.
So we need never tremble in fear of God our Heavenly Father, we can worship Him in the splendour of His HOLINESS.
There must be mirades of Angels around the Throne of God – Praising Him and Singing.
Just think there must be a marvellous Heavenly Choir and glourious colours that we can only dream about, some that we have never envisaged or could imagine.
The brightness of God’s Glory must be so great that we cannot comprehend it. Remember that the face of Moses even glowed as he came down the mountain after talking with God. So much so that he had to cover his face as the people were afraid of the Glory of God that shone forth from him.
May God Bless us today and surround us with His Holy Angels.
Have a Lovely Day today.
* God Bless You *
Isaiah: Chapter 30 verse 18
Yet The LORD longs to be gracious to you;
He rises to show you compassion.
For The LORD is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for Him!
Thank you LORD that you are a God of compassion – please continue to have compassion on me and my family, especially today. Thank you for all your blessings to me. Amen.
I really do thank The LORD that He is gracious to me, how about you?.
It is good to think of all the good things that God allows us to have and to do.
Remember ours is a God of Love not of hate or injustice. Do you know I believe He loves us each one as if we are the only one….that sounds a bit odd really but if you make something you treasure it and love it ….. so it makes sence that when God made us in our Mothers womb then we would be a treasure to Him and yes He would love us.
So we should try to be content just where we are – if you are not used to praying, you may like to give it a try – then like it says in The Bible…….Blessed are all who wait for Him!
Let us try to wait on God and let the unholy things
not have a hold on us.
We can make a fresh start each day – it is best to take just One Day at a Time and try to find something nice to do for our self or for someone else. We can be gracious – even a smile to to say ‘Hello’ to someone can really make their day just a bit nicer.
* May God be Gracious to us today.*
Have a lovely Day

Charm is deceptive
Proverbs: Chapter 31 verse 30
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting:
but a woman who fears The LORD
is to be praised.
I like to think that this Scripture applies to all Mankind. We know that you are an awesome God. It is a Holy Fear that you want us to have, not that we should be frightened of you because you are the God of Love and in perfect love there is no fear. So if there is no deceit in our hearts then we may be praised and will be able to give to you all the Glory that you desire from us. So may my beauty be in knowing you today and forever more. Amen.
The above is taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ of Heavenly Blessings straight from Gods Word in the Holy Bible.
Well what do you think about Charm?…..Some people are really Charming…..not just women but men also…. and I think that God likes to look into the hearts of all of us.
When we are walking in the love of Jesus, then our hearts will be free of fear and people will see the peace and beauty on our face.
We can be praised for the beauty that is within our hearts. As Christians – people will want to know what we have that they have not got. That will be praise indeed for us that we can give God the Glory knowing that our beauty whether we be man or woman is within us. (That Jesus is in our Heart)
So the outward appearance of ourselves (even though we keep ourselves nice) is not the be all and end all of things.
Our beauty needs to be on the inside so that it can radiate to those that The Lord brings before us each day.
* Praise the Lord for His Goodness and Love towards us each Day.*
Nehemiah: Chapter 1 verse 10-11
Nehemiah: Chapter 1 verse 10 -11
They are your servants and your people,
whom you redeemed by your great strength
and your mighty hand.
let your ear be attentive
to the prayer of this your servant
and to the prayer of your servants
who delight in revering your name…………………….
Please hear my prayer today Lord God, I am one of your servants who delights in revering your name.
And I know that the Name of Jesus your Son is the Name above all names on this earth where are living now.
Let us think about what it means to be a Servant….. really none of us want to think that we are a Servant.
Jesus came as our Saviour, He showed us that we need to be Servants, remember how He washed the Disciples feet? Not only are we to serve others but that we need to obey God our Father in Heaven, in that way we can say we are servants of God.
To be servants of God- is obeying His commands and revering Jesus as our Lord, then He will hear our Prayers.
It is no good praying anything if we do not believe that God is real. If we do believe – then we can delight in the fact that our prayers however humble or desperate will be heard.
But – now this is the But.….we need to wait for God to answer them in the way that He thinks fit….not us wanting them answered right that minute. Sometime we have to wait and wait and think that He may not have heard us. Well, then some of us go off and do our own thing not waiting for the better time when God may answer in a very different way than we could have imagined.
Let us Pray today and learn to wait for God our Heavenly Father to answer in His good timing.
May God Bless our Prayers
