But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NKJV)

Our love story with Jesus is forever and as we discover Him, we love Him more. But He has loved us with an everlasting love from before we were born and His love never wavers, never falters and never ends. It is the greatest and most incredible of all love stories and it continues for eternity. In Jeremiah 31:3, God says, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love!”

For this reason [seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, For Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name]. Ephesians 3:14-15 AMPC

 In the old testament your family determined who you were, how people saw you, how you saw yourself and what you were entitled to. Gideon whom God called a mighty man of fearless courage, to save Israel from the Midianites who had impoverished them said, “Oh Lord, how can I deliver Israel? Behold, my family is the poorest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.’’ Saul when called by the prophet to be king said, “Am I not a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel? And is not my family the least of all the families of the clans of Benjamin? Why then do you speak this way to me?” David when chosen to marry the king’s daughter said, “Who am I, and what is my life or my father’s family in Israel, that I should be the king’s son-in-law?” Unlike God, one of the first thing they considered in responding to a call, duty or a better place in life was their perceived self worth or entitlement based on their family.

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32 (KJV)

Be kind and tenderhearted!

 In the new covenant God has given us only one new commandment and that is to love one another as He has loved us. To be tenderhearted one must have a soft, sensitive and compassionate heart towards God and people. Our hearts are sensitive and easily hurt. If we don’t deal with hurts, offences and disappointments every time they happen, our hearts can get hardened. Therefore, continued forgiveness is important.

In the day when I cried out, You answered me. And made me bold with strength in my soul. Psalms 138:3 (NKJV)

Dwight L Moody said “When we find a man meditating on the words of God my friends, that man is full of boldness and successful”

I have been studying the Book of Acts and found Paul a very fascinating character. This was a guy that was bold and zealous. I never appreciated how bold he was until I read Acts chapters 20 -22 and there I camped for a few days. This was about Paul wanting to go to Jerusalem where he would be bound, beaten and put in prison. In Acts 20:22, he said “And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there”. The first time I read this scripture and then read Acts 21 where he was warned again by some disciples, I wondered why Paul didn’t heed the warnings of the disciples and everyone. As I studied Acts 20:23-24, I realised that Paul understood very well what the Holy Spirit was saying and what was required of him by the same Holy Spirit working in tune with his spirit. 23 “except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me.”   24But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. Where others might have had an excuse or even say that the Holy Spirit warned them not go, rather than the truth which was the Holy Spirit advising what would happen, Paul saw it as an opportunity for the gospel because of what he felt compelled to do.

Against all hope, he believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” Romans 4:18 (MEV)

Hope is a favourable confident expectation of good because of the word of God! Our expectation is based on what we hear and what we believe – we can expect good or bad depending on what we choose to hear continually and believe. Godly hope chooses to believe God at all costs because of who He is and the knowledge that He is a dependable and reliable God who has promised that His word will not return to Him unfulfilled.

And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Colossians 1:17 (KJVS)

 In a world where there is sometimes pressure to always want more, more and more of everything it is important for you to know that God is enough. If you have God you have everything you need and there is nothing else, nothing more beyond God. God is enough, He is actually more than enough!

For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. 3 John 3-4 (NKJV)

Knowing the truth can be like turning on the light in a dark room, suddenly you can see and understand. I don’t know if you have ever experienced the frustration of trying to explain something you know is true to someone and somehow you can’t seem to get through. Or when something is missing and you know it was there and everybody goes, ‘not me.’ And you feel like screaming in frustration because you just want the truth. I believe God created us for truth and there is a yearning in us all to know the truth or to get to the bottom of the matter (maybe some more than others, lol).

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Philippians 4:4 (NKJV)

When you rejoice in someone or over something, for example the birth of a baby, you are so exited, full of joy, gladness, delight and happiness. In the same way and with all the same expressions, the bible is encouraging us to always rejoice in the Lord unconditionally. You are rejoicing in the person, that is, all that the Lord represents now and forevermore, all that He has done, all that He is doing and all that He will do for you and in you. I read an article recently which made me chuckle. It said, ‘In the New Testament, Lord is the most frequently used title for Jesus Christ. Although we rarely use this term in our daily lives, we are all quite familiar with another word: boss. That is basically what Lord means—one possessing authority, power, and control.’ So let us together Rejoice in The Boss!

I was pushed hard so that I was falling but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my song. He has become my salvation. Psalm 118:13-14 (ESV)

I love the song by Donnie McClurkin ”..we fall down …but we get up”. The other day, my family and I were studying Luke 8 as we are currently doing the New Christmas Tradition which is studying the book of Luke from December 1st and by Christmas Eve one would have read the entire account of Jesus’s life. We intend to do this every Christmas and it is not too late for you to start either. So, we came to the Parable of the Sower where Chris and I asked the children a few questions as usual.

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105 (NLT)

In my attempt to stay fit and svelte (lol!), I decided to upgrade my daily power walk to a run every few km, walk, then run again. Okay, it could be 1 or 2km……..or even half a km at a time J but that is not the point. The point is that I have graduated to running, yay! Now any sports person or sports shop will tell you that you need to wear proper running shoes for jogging or even power walking. On this particular day, I absentmindedly put on my trainers and went jogging, sorry running. I was absolutely proud of myself that I had run several km without stopping. Very proud indeed! However, I noticed whilst running my second stint that my feet were aching in a funny way. I thought maybe it was due to my running style and tried to adjust. Along my route is a hill and when I know I am struggling, I tend not to look up when jogging up the hill. So, I didn’t and then noticed I HAD THE WRONG SHOES ON! I was not wearing the right running shoes and even though I could run, it was with so much discomfort and pain.
