Have faith in God's message to you. (Best Bits of the Bible 4)

Jesus has a message for you...  The Virtual Vicar speaks with King James (so called because he loves the King James version of the Bible) and draws out the main message of this passage: John 14:15-18 King James Version 15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Comment below. Bible Passage: Acts 3:1-6.   3 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. 2 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; 3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. 4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. 5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. 6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Naza

Time to see the light (Best Bits of the Bible 1)

Acts 9:1-6   And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, 2  And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. 3  And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: 4  And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 5  And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 6  And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

Happiness is knowing of what you are made

Do you move through life feeling everyday is the same? Like some repeated pattern that goes on and on? Everything is just boring, boring, boring. You work so hard to earn enough money to play, but yet your playtime passes so fast. Suffer five days, enjoy two days. For life to have zest, everyone needs that natural feeling of drive, anticipation, and excitement. When you don't not know how to get it naturally, you feel you have to resort to artificial means to stimulate that sense of being fully alive, desperately trying to bring some meaning into life. But you see, happiness is within you... If you can't satisfy your wants, then the other way to happiness is to release them. Let go of that which you feel you just must have. You can make yourself suffer because you crave what you do not have. And let me ask you this: Is this yearning self-created? Or something imposed on you by the outside world? Perhaps it's the outside world's fault because other people keep flaunting

On happiness in varied circumstances

Happiness need not be entirely dependent on your environment. There are certain basics everyone needs like health and roof over their head but a person could have all the money in the world, and still be unable to acquire what it is they really want, and ultimately remain unhappy. A person could be surrounded by all their friends and loved ones, and still be lonely. And, a person could have to eat bugs to survive, in a cold, wet prison cell, and still be happy to eat those bugs, and happy to be alive.  This person has gratefully accepted their surroundings, and has found some good or greater meaning in it, making the experience more pleasurable. This person chose to be happy with what they had, by being mindful of the moment, recognizing the potential it may have.   The Apostle Paul in a letter that made it's way into the Bible said this:   "I know the experience of being in need and of having more than enough; I have learned the secret to being content in any and every circum
