Blessed and Protected

by Richard Griffiths

The Aaronic blessing must be one of the oldest prayers in the world. Since about 1500 BC to this day, Jews and Christians have used it, weekly or even more frequently. These are just its opening words – and what words! In the Hebrew it is just three: Yahweh (the Lord) – bless-you – keep-you. But...

Shalom

by John Sainsbury

“Peace be with you”! These were apparently the first words that Jesus spoke to His disciples when He appeared to them after His resurrection. And there must have been something pretty important about this greeting, because we read that He repeated it a moment later (John 20:21). When we hear this,...

Shining for God’s Glory

by Tanya Person

I remember having a great time enjoying God’s creation whilst walking on a beach in Scotland.  As I walked, I started looking at the shells on the beach. Suddenly I saw what looked like a beautiful turquoise coloured piece of glass. I picked it up and found that it was just a normal piece of clear...

Is It Really You?

by Ron Scurfield

The boat was being buffeted by the waves (Matthew 14:24). ‘The wind was against them.’ Have we been there? We’re struggling to move forward but feel helpless because of the storm.

Strong in Spirit

by David Cross

This is such a brief description of the early years of John the Baptist, but how significant! He had been nurtured by godly parents from conception, and clearly walked in close fellowship with God. The result was strength of spirit. It seems that there’s a battle within the heart of every believer...

Over-fermentation

by Peter Brokaar

As Christians we have to learn to wait. It is in the waiting process that God works deeply to shape us and teach us. Without waiting, there would never be any real spiritual transformation. So, we encourage people to learn how to wait well, how to wait in faith, in expectation, and to trust in the Lord’s...

According to the dictionary, faithfulness is the concept of unfailingly remaining loyal to someone or something and putting that loyalty into consistent practice, regardless of extenuating circumstances.

God – Your Source of Comfort

by

We are all created with a need for comfort. One of the most important sources of comfort is to be seen and understood by somebody else. During the first weeks of your being, no other human being knew you were there. Your mother was not yet aware she was pregnant. How was your need for comfort met during...

Living as Jesus lived

by Margaret Silvester

Over my long life my main leisure activity has been climbing mountain peaks. I have a vivid memory of the climb in the Cuillin mountains on the Isle of Skye. We started our walk in brilliant sunshine and, as we approached the peak, we were encompassed in a thick mist. As we began to make our way down,...

What Part of the Body Are You?

by Tracey Smith

When our children were small, we would spend a week each year with my husband’s family in a beautiful south coast town, and we would always pop into the local church on the Sunday morning we were there. One memorable Sunday, the pastor made pancakes in church. He talked through all the ingredients...
