But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Reconciliation

Written by

It still amazes me how easily children fall out with one another. One  does one little thing to offend the other, then there is retaliation on the part of the other. Then there follows an escalating process of ‘tit for tat’ until  one ends up in tears. But I am also amazed how...

God’s Alarm

Written by

I like to be up really early in the morning, but I do not like the act of getting out of bed. As a heavy sleeper, I am very dependent on my alarm clock to wake me up. Many years ago, I discovered that, if the alarm clock was within reach, I would just put it off and go back to sleep. The snooze...

“Soul Searching”

Written by

The true believer is not afraid of being searched by the scriptures; indeed he or she wants this searching, and wants confirmation from the bible that they are true believers, RightWithGod. This desire itself is a confirmation, or token that they are indeed true children of God. The unbeliever does...

A Lost Diamond

Written by

My dear wife of 53 years still wears her engagement ring continually, night and day. It was not an expensive ring, but the years had made it very precious to us both. A few days ago she got out of bed in the morning and realised that her engagement ring felt rough. On closer examination we...

Tomorrow does not Always Come

Written by

Thank you all for your patience with me over the unexpectedly long period of short posts due to injury and holiday.

Giving God His Place in Preaching

Written by

Holiday Thought

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” (2 Corinthians 4:7)

Those called to preach have a treasure to bring to their people, but they must realise that they themselves are vessels of clay. This is very...

“One-handed Blog” (6)

Written by

It is sobering experience to read some of the things that Jesus says about the last day of what we call history, that is, the day of judgement. He always warns about the suddenness and unexpectedness of the arrival of that day. He emphasises the ordinariness of things, until the very moment...

I have often said to my congregation that events, occurrences, trials etc in the life of the christian are never ‘accidents’, or just ‘incidental’. The words, “For the child of God, nothing is for nothing”, were frequently on my lips as I preached. I now find...

Having the Mind of Christ

The true believer will always have a strong desire to progress in the christian faith. This desire is, first and foremost, the desire to fulfill the great purpose of our salvation, as it is set before us throughout the bible. For example, in Ephesians 1:4 we read, “According as He has chosen...

The Recent Atrocities

Written by

It is not easy to comment on the recent atrocities in London and Manchester, yet one cannot be silent. Things like the death penalty used to be a deterrent to the taking of a human life. Some say that we should restore the death penalty for murder. I would be in favour of its restoration, not...

In Psalm 95:1, we read, “O come let us sing unto the Lord: Let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation”. Why? Because that Rock is Christ. Why ‘Rock’? Because He is utterly dependable, making our salvation unspeakably secure.

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ” (Romans 8:1). Believer, there is a banner over you. It is Christ’s banner of love. It says, “NO CONDEMNATION”. How can that be? It is because Christ has paid the penalty for your sins so fully and...

The Danger of Hardening your Heart

Written by

The danger the title speaks of is the greatest danger that anyone is open to. It is not a danger from any person, or power outside of yourself, but a danger from within you: the danger of hardening your heart against the voice of God. The title comes from Psalm 95: 7-8, and is repeated in the New...

“True blessedness”

Written by

It is a natural tendency in man, especially in the present age, to project an image of oneself, of strength, confidence, success, prestige and so on. Sadly, this kind of ideal image has to some extent invaded the church, and even some of the pulpits of our land. The question we must ask is: Is this...
