Read the Bible

What God says is more important than the way we feel. What Jesus has to say to us is more important than our current emotional state. Psalm 119:16 says, “I will delight myself in your statutes: I will not forget thy word.” God’s promises are not mottos that we can hang on the wall, they are rather checks we can take to the bank. God’s promises are absolutely sure. He wouldn’t throw away a book full of pre-signed checks, God has pre-signed these checks to us. God’s promises are absolutely certain to gain remittance when we cash them. God’s promises always pay back.


We should always be ready to learn more about what God has promised to us, and claim what it says in them. Remind God of what he’s promised to do.

 “Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding.” Proverbs 3:13

Reading the Bible, studying it, listening the sermons, going to church and hearing the preacher and if possible, questioning the teacher afterwards, or in a small group or bible study. Getting to know what God promises, finding wisdom in God’s word will bring us happiness.

“Blessed is the man that does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful.” Psalm 1:1

Read the Bible, treat it as God’s word. Don’t stand in judgment on it, but allow it to stand in judgment upon you. Study the words so that God can teach you through it and you will be happy.

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 …
