Meet with God

The Lord is everywhere; God is omni-present, but there are times when you enter his presence and meet with him. This isn’t a contradiction. It’s the same thing as saying that someone is present if you are in the same room with them, but you’re really meeting with them if you’re actually talking to the them or hugging  them. In that case, you’re really with them.

We need to spend time with the Lord. Speaking to him, praying to him, and listening to him. Reading his word, reading from the Bible. Spending time, worship him individually as well as together with others in the church and we need to ask him to meet with us, to bring his spirit into every area of our life and  every part of body and soul.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:3.

When you are unhappy. If you don’t quite know who to be.  If you need to decide to change, but you don’t have the strength.  If things are looking bad because of changes that have happened in your life, remember – wait upon the Lord, turn to him. God doesn’t just want to give us the wings of a dove to fly away from our problems. He wants, according to this passage in Isaiah, to give us the wings of Eagles, to soar, to give us the strength to get through any problem.

Baptism Pool

I was on the cusp of buying a birthing pool.   They are inflatable and relatively cheap.  Unfortunately, they are intended for women of about 5'9" height.  I, however, required the birthing pool for a man.  The man in question was over 6' tall.  He was, of course, not going to give birth but, rather, he had been born again.  The pool was required for baptism.  So instead of the birthing pool I bought a paddling pool.  The pool was 12' in diameter but only 30" high.  I set it up in the garden and filled it with water.  On my getting into the pool to try it out the week before the baptism, there was a veritable tidal wave engulfing a large section of my lawn.  No good then.  Instead I borrowed a custom made baptistry from a nearby church.  The baptism went swimmingly.
A couple of days before the baptism, which took place in our regular Sunday morning service, there was a pool tournament in our church.  The guy who was about to be baptised in the baptismal pool won…

Good News That Can Save Your Life At The End Of March

This March we commemorate the day Jesus died, Good Friday, right on the last day of the month. The significance of the death of Jesus is summed up in this verse:

 “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

 There is an amazing simplicity here – 21 words of only one syllable, one word of two syllables, and one word (righteousness) of three syllables. It could hardly be simpler than this–yet whole books could be written on the meaning of each phrase. How important is this verse? Miss this and you’ve missed the truth of God. If you get this right, you can be wrong in a lot of other places and still go to heaven. In these days of rampant theological confusion, it is vitally important that the church of Jesus Christ be firmly settled on the gospel message. That is, after all, our only message.

God has not committed to us a message about political power or military might.

Low Carb is the Answer, don’t be fat forever.

Advanced technology is affecting our life today by causing an increase in luxuries and facilities that result in more laziness.  We can order almost anything on Amazon and get it delivered. We can get any food we want from the local supermarket. These and other cultural factors, such as the popularity of sugary foods,  have resulted in a simple horrific truth: more people are becoming obese these days. It is one of the most rapidly thriving health problems of the 21st century. This health problem is more serious in developed countries. It causes serious heart problems and results in devastated effects on body.

One cure, the one that I have found to work, is the adoption of low carbohydrate diet; a diet containing lesser amounts of carbohydrates. Low carb diet enhances your body by shifting your metabolism towards the burning of fat instead of carbs. As fats are the primary cause of obesity so they must be removed to cure the effect. When your intake of carbohydrates; which are direct …
