Cycling in Tandem

At first, I saw God as my observer, my judge, keeping track of the things I did wrong; so as to know whether I merited heaven or hell when I die. He was there sort of like a picture of a president. I recognized His picture when I saw it, but I really didn’t know Him.

Later on when I met Christ, it seemed as though life was like a bike ride, on a tandem bike, and I noticed that Christ was in the back helping me pedal. I don’t recall when he suggested we change places, but life has not been the same since.

It’s Saturday

SATURDAY

Dear God,
It’s Saturday,
and the week has been a mixture of highs and lows,
joys and headaches,
deep fulfilment and new challenges…….

 

There are things we have done well,
things we could have done better,
and things we have avoided doing,
for whatever reason…..

But throughout it all we have grown,
even although we may not recognise it….
For you continue to work through us,
in so many hidden and unseen ways,
moulding us,
into the person you call us to be…..

And so help us this Saturday,
to be thankful for this past week,
and as the day progresses,
stir up in us a sense of joy and anticipation,
as we look forward to gathering to worship you,
in our church fellowship,
tomorrow morning….
AMEN

ISAIAH 64: 8

We are the clay, you are the potter. We are all the work of your hand.

Writing the answer

He prayed on his knees. He prayed standing. He prayed sitting. But he had never heard the voice of God.

 

So he started to write down his prayers. At first no more than a few lines – big issues and real problems. He still heard nothing. Yet he wrote on, enjoying the confidence of pen and paper. Page after page, notebook after notebook were filled with the intimacies of his deepest thoughts and desires. But yet he sensed no answer.

Four ways to do evangelism

Many people have slipped into the mindset that evangelism is a gift that some believers have and others do not. The reality is that when someone becomes reconciled to God, He sends them out to reconcile others.

That’s not a gift—we all have the responsibility to take Christ to others.

A Tribute to the Tunisia Victims

Sometime ago I visited Our local Sikh Temple . The gentleman who showed me round made a very wise remark that  I will always remember . And it was, ‘all of the world religions are about treating other as yourself’.

 

Today as a result of recent atrocities across the globe, many media types and people in the street  are saying ‘religion’ is a bad thing. Yet that forgets the many billions  of our fellow human beings who live out their own faith in inner peace and harmony with their neighbour.

 

So as we stand here in the UK at midday in silent tribute to those who were so brutally  murdered in Tunisia, let us remember Christ commanded us to love God and our neighbour just as much as ourselves.  In fact, we need to remember these conscious acts are indivisible.
