“Duck Tape Surfing”

by Colin Dexter

God doing in us what we can’t do on our own.

Phil 4 v 11-13

11 Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. 12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ,[c] who gives me strength

Matt 16 v24 to end

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. 25 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. 26 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?[l] Is anything worth more than your soul? 27 For the Son of Man will come with his angels in the glory of his Father and will judge all people according to their deeds. 28 And I tell you the truth, some standing here right now will not die before they see the Son of Man coming in his Kingdom.”


Will we allow the Holy Spirit to  a makeover in our lives?

Alcohol Pricing?

by Colin Dexter

Nick Smith (MP): Given strong evidence that a higher price for alcohol means
less public disorder and better health, when will the Government do the
right thing-as they have finally done with plain packaging-and introduce
minimum unit pricing for alcohol?

A Song about the Lord’s Vineyard (Isaiah)

Now I will sing for the one I love
    a song about his vineyard:
My beloved had a vineyard
    on a rich and fertile hill.
He plowed the land, cleared its stones,
    and planted it with the best vines.
In the middle he built a watchtower
    and carved a winepress in the nearby rocks.
Then he waited for a harvest of sweet grapes,
    but the grapes that grew were bitter……..

I will make it a wild place
    where the vines are not pruned and the ground is not hoed,
    a place overgrown with briers and thorns.

(A vineyard that doesn’t have owner soon looks like one that doesn’t have an owner)

What is the significance of thorns & briars in the Bible & was it just by accident that a crown of thorns was [laced on the head of Jesus?

John 19:2    New Living Translation (NLT)

The soldiers wove a crown of thorns and put it on his head,

Have a look at Leviticus 16.     Jesus came for the sins of the world. Is there also  symbolism in the crown of thorns?

Lev 16

20 “When Aaron has finished purifying the Most Holy Place and the Tabernacle and the altar, he must present the live goat. 21 He will lay both of his hands on the goat’s head and confess over it all the wickedness, rebellion, and sins of the people of Israel. In this way, he will transfer the people’s sins to the head of the goat. Then a man specially chosen for the task will drive the goat into the wilderness. 22 As the goat goes into the wilderness, it will carry all the people’s sins upon itself into a desolate land.
