God can be your friend?

by Colin Dexter

How much do we value the friendship of God? What would be willing to trade? Jesus said:-

“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends,  s for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

We are all quite good at naturally caring for ourselves.  How much do we care for others? Do we reflect the life of Jesus ? Is our identity Christlike?

Joseph is an example of a Selfish man who changed his attitude. How? It was because he put God first.

What are our burdens?

by Colin Dexter

Matthew 11:28-30    New International Version (NIV)

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

In Jesus day the Pharisees put heavy burdens on the people with strict adherence to numerous rules & regulations.This was a “heavy burden”.  The  “burden” that Jesus puts on us is light because he daily bears our burdens. Sometimes we choose to carry the “burden” all by ourselves but we need to change our attitude. Take everything to God in prayer. (Pray naturally about everything)

Thanks TC

Mono Jojoy(deceased) & Pablo (Colombia)

by Colin Dexter

Mono Jojoy was a guerrilla leader in Colombia who declared pastors to be military targets and the Bible to be the most lethal weapon against his interests.

Pablo says ” my job is providing Bibles and talking to people about Christ. God does the rest. After people start reading the Bible, something supernatural happens”

Spiritual Inheritance??

by Colin Dexter

Galatians 3 V 26    For you  are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.    27   Forj as many of you as were baptized into Christ   have put on Christ.     28   There is neither Jew nor Greek,   there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all   one in Christ Jesus.    29  And  if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s   seed, and   heirs according to the promise.

Romans 8 v16-17

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Spurgeon

our right to the divine heritage stands or falls with Christ’s right to the same inheritance. We are co-heirs; if he be truly an heir, so are we; and if he be not, neither are we. Our two interests are intertwined and made one, we have neither of us any heirship apart from the other; we are joint heirs, Christ jointly with us; ourselves jointly with Christ. So, then, it follows that if there be any flaw in the will, so that it be not valid, if it be not rightly signed, sealed, and delivered, then it is no more valid for Christ than it is for us.”
