Birds in His Care

God cares and knows about our hungry birds at this time of year, so I know He cares for me.

‘Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,

When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,

I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;

His eve is on the sparrow and I know He cares for me.’

Civilla D. Martin

Go

The Lord asks us all to go. To the mission field, our neighbours, school, work-places. There is no exceptions. The message to all is to go and tell.

‘And he trembling and astonished said, ‘Lord, what will you have me to do?’ And the Lord said unto him, ‘Arise and go.’ Acts 9:6

A Heavenly Perspective

Nichodemus had many questions for Jesus, ‘How can a man be born again?’ So often we look at things from an earthly position. Through God’s grace we need to see things through His eyes.

Jesus answered, ‘Truly I tell you, no-one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit.’ John 3:5

Do not Fear

To be a child of God has a feeling of safety. There is much to be afraid of in this world, but in the Bible we read 366 times ‘Do not fear.’

‘In Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptised with Christ have clothes yourselves with Christ.’ Galatians 3:26-7

Salt

As a healthy rule we are encouraged to cut down on our salt intake. But our food still needs some salt to help with preserving it. In our Christian lives we can also be the necessary salt to mankind.

‘You are the salt of the earth.’ Matthew 5:13

Imagine

Imagine no bad or sad things happening. Imagine no time, no night and day. Imagine no sickness, partings or bereavements. It’s called heaven.

‘God has prepared things for those who love him that no eye has seen, or ear has heard, or that haven’t crossed the mind of any known being.’

1 Corinthians 2:9

Light

If always seems amazing that a small candle in a room will give light to the whole place and the opposite does not work. A small corner of darkness does not make the whole room dark. No wonder Jesus used the illustration of light

‘You are the light of the world. Let your light so shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.’ Matthew 5:14
