The above is an ‘Oil Painting” of a Vision that someone had.
Leviticus: Chapter 19 verses 1-2
The LORD said to Moses,
Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them:
‘Be holy because –
I, The LORD your God, am Holy.’
Today we need to be reminded of this – we need to be holy because the LORD our God is Holy. How can we do this you may well ask? Possibly in lots of ways but one thing we can do, is to try to keep ourselves from the evils of this world.
God has called us to be Holy.
That means we are set aside for Him. Let us try to stay that way for The LORD our God each day.
The above is taken from book ‘Drink from the Cup’ by. J.M.R. Larman.
We can only take one day at a time while we live on this earth to try to be Holy.
We are not that clever to be able to do this by ourselves.
We need the help of The Holy Spirit to help guide us each day.
Really when you think about it this can only happen if we are a Christian, so we best become one and get on with it.
So, you may say that is not very holy to talk like that but it is the truth and in the Bible it says ‘the truth will set you free’ Therefore for us to be holy it is an on going thing. We don’t like to not be able to do some of the worldly things. However, we should really try to obey the Ten Commandments that were give to Moses. If you are not sure what they are they can be found in your Holy Bible……if you do not happen to have one…….then maybe look on Google because there you can find most things.
Today let us hopefully not get really cross with anyone and upset them, let us not swear or steal or commit different kinds of crime. Let us try to love our neighbour as ourselves (that is one of the Commandments) I am not going to list them here because if you want to be Holy then it is up to you to try, no-one else can do that for you.
Please let us remember to Pray and ask God our Heavenly Father to allow The Holy Spirit to help us as we walk in truth and love with Jesus our Lord.
* I pray that you have a lovely Holy Day today *

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 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.
* God Bless You Today, Have a lovely Day *
