Year End Thoughts

                “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”                                                                                                                                                                 2 Corinthians 5:17                 If I were to sit down right now and explore my calendars from years past I would be able to quickly discern a pattern.  I would discover a pattern which… Continue reading Year End Thoughts

Restore Us

                “Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we might be saved.”                                                                                                                                                                                 Psalm 80:3                 It never ceases to amaze me how the Scriptures continuously build the case for the new birth.  In the eightieth Psalm we encounter a worship song which was written to be sung as a prayer… Continue reading Restore Us

Advent Reflection

                “Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of His inheritance?  You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.  You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl our iniquities into the depths of the sea.  You… Continue reading Advent Reflection

He Was In The World

                “He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him,   the world did not recognise Him.  He came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him.  Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children… Continue reading He Was In The World

The Doubter

                “My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favouritism.  Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in.  If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here is a good… Continue reading The Doubter
