We all face challenges in our lives. If you are reading this blog it’s likely your eyes have been opened to the answer to those issues. How many times is the answer right in front of us, but we are wandering around blindly, because we are not discerning “the answer”?
As we follow Jesus, we can expect to see the miraculous and be amazed by His love. However, as we hear the truth of His Word, we will be required to give up the way we think and what we want. As we look at the reading this week, ask yourself, what message are you not willing to hear?
The miracle of just 5 loaves and 2 fish being used to feed 5,000 men plus women and children, with 12 baskets of food left over, created in me the belief that God can do anything, and often does far more than we think is possible.
All He is waiting for is us to be filled with compassion when we see a need, and to pray with faith, calling on him to change the situation.
I forgive you. This is a short yet powerful sentence. FORGIVE is such a powerful word.
Hope thinks: You know what? No matter how it looks right now! Things are going to be all right. Things will work out because God is a good God!
The Bible tells us of another banquet that is being prepared for all of us even now. This banquet will be even more spectacular than any of the amazing weddings you or I’ve attended.
It’s crazy to think about paying a debt you don’t owe, yet every one of us has, in a sense, done just that when we succumb to worry.
Now more than ever, Jesus is sending us to the World.
Life has changed for so many of us. Parents becoming home-schoolers, tens of thousands of workers on “furlough”, NHS & other key workers working so hard for us all.
As we read through this week’s Bible verses, I was struck by the way Jesus changed the environment everywhere he went. Sin’s pollution levels were radically transformed by Jesus.
