Do you really know Jesus?
1 Corinthians Chapter 8 verse 6.
There is but one Lord,
Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.
The above is of course taken from the Holy Bible. Just imagine that everything that has been made has been made by God our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ His Son. So we did not evolve from anything, we are made in the image of the man Jesus. He did not evolve from an Ape or anything else, he was born as a baby and grew into an adult man. Each evolves after it’s own kind. Just think an Oak tree cannot from it’s seed turn into an Apple tree. Even as man is born from the first man and woman that God made on this earth. So there we are (how about that then)?
I hope you have a lovely day in the knowledge that you and I are made in the image of God who loves us just as we are. Know that we did not evolve from some odd source and let us be glad.
Walk in Love
2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6
And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.
Yes you are a God of Love and to love you means just what the above verse says – that we walk in obedience to your ways. We can only do that when we have invited Jesus into our lives and we live in your Kingdom on this earth. Praise you Heavenly Father that you enable us to walk in obedience today.
It may seem odd to think that to walk in Love with the Lord is to walk in Obedience to Him. The only way really that we can do that is to read our Holy Bible to see how! It is good to read part of the Bible each day – part of the New Testament of course but not to neglect reading part of the old Testament. Just a small bit each day is better than not at all. You could of course read one of the Psalms sometimes for something different to read. It is always special to find a quiet time during the day to sit and read even a few verses of a Psalm.
I hope you have a lovely day trying to walk in Love with your family and friends so that you know that you are walking in Obedience with God – because that shows that you Love Him our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and The Holy Spirit. (The Holy Spirit will help us to be obedient if we ask Him to)

Galatians: Chapter 1 verse 3
Grace and peace to you
from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is lovely today to know the grace and peace that can only come from God and Jesus. If you have a spare minute right now, sit and receive that wonderful peace, remember – ask and you shall receive.
Taken from book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
Have you ever just sat quietly on your own to try to receive that peace that comes from God our Heavely Father. It is worth a try – after all what can you loose when you find time to sit without the tele on or the radio on or any of the family around.
It can seem quite odd
if you have never sat quietly
on your own
but it is worth a try.
If you are indoors – sit in your favourite chair, if you are outside maybe in the garden find somewhere to sit on your own. Wherever you decide to be – look around where you are and begin to feel the peace in your heart even if it is only for a few minutes.
Try to sit a little longer, all the chores of the day will not run away, they will still be there for you to do. So treat yourself to a bit of quiet time to receive the Grace and Peace of The Lord.
Have a lovely Day.
(The Peace of The Lord is beyond our understanding)
Fear of The Lord
Proverbs: Chapter 1 verse 7
The fear of The LORD
is the beginning of knowledge
fools despise wisdom
I think I shall ask The LORD for more knowledge and wisdom today, I do not want to be a fool, I pray that I do have the fear of The LORD and I certainly do not despise wisdom and knowledge.
For my part I know that I do love wisdom and knowledge, also I do know that I definitely need more! Thank you LORD God that you continue to fill me afresh each day, also with the knowledge and love of Jesus.
So let us just think where are we really going to get this knowledge and wisdom from……well I think it does help to read our Bible because it has been written for our learning. Therefore if we decide not to read, then we are limiting our brains to absorb knowledge and wisdom from the Apostles and followers of Jesus that are written about in the most Holy Book.
Lots of them were not clever people but with the account of their lives we can learn from their mistakes. (Hopefully we can!)
So where does the FEAR come from then?
You see we are not to be afraid of our God because He is the God of Love. Our only fear is to be that we really don’t acknowledge Him as we should and that we don’t always walk in the knowledge that He is our Heavenly Father and He Loves us even more than our earthly fathers love us.
We do fear being chastised by our earthly fathers and need to realize that our Heavenly Father does chastise us too.
So that FEAR OF THE LORD
is that we DO NOT need to be
FRIGHTENED OF THE LORD OUR GOD.
I hope you have a lovely day walking in the Love and Knowledge, Wisdom and Joy of our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Heavenly Father.
Act: 2 verse 21
Acts: 2 verse 21
And everyone who calls on the name of The Lord will be saved.
All of us who belong to Jesus Christ were sinners who have been saved. Amen.
Have you ever thought about the above.
Never feel inferior to those around you in church because all were sinners who have been saved. Praise God that He sees us as neither male or female when we belong to Jesus. He sees us as we are, redeemed by the blood of our Lord. We are sinners no more, sin has no dominion over us, we are all equal in the sight of our Father in Heaven.
