Hi Everybody

Let there be no ...

foolish talk nor crude joking,

which are out of place,

but instead let there be thanksgiving.

Ephesians 5:4

Thanksgiving.

'for the joy of the LORD is your strength.'

Nehemiah speaking in Nehemiah 8:10

Hi Everybody

"My Father,

if it be  possible,

let this cup pass from  me;

nevertheless,

not as I will, but as You  will."

Jesus speaking in Matthew  26:39

John reminds us

that this verse brings  out 

that Jesus was indeed fully  human.

This was not a cup that He wanted  to drink

but He was completely obedient to  the Father.

There was no easier  way.

Hi Everybody

"The Son of  Man

came not to be served but to  serve,

and to give His  life

as a ransom for  many."

Jesus speaking in Matthew  20:28

Today we received the joyful  news

that Asia Bibi and her family are  now safe, alive and well

in Canada.

This is because many, many  people,

following in the steps of  Jesus,

helped pay the ransom money for a  persecuted Christian.

'Bear ye one another's  burdens,

and so fulfill the law of  Christ.'

Galatians 6:2

Hi Everybody

"What will it profit a  man

if he gains the whole world and  forfeits his life

(loses his own  soul)?"

Jesus speaking in Matthew  16:26

John had to go to nearby town re  computer

first thing this morning and then  our weekly shop.

So while he was away I did some  sweeping.

Suddenly I heard his voice behind  me.

"Finish that and then we'll  shop."

He was easily back home half an  hour before I expected him!

And during the morning our Lord  Jesus spoke to me:-

"I am coming back sooner than you  think."

Hi Everybody

Jesus said  ...

"A prophet is not without  honor

except in his  hometown

and in his own  household."

Jesus speaking in Matthew  13:57

Wherefore, brethren,

covet (be zealous) to  prophesy

and forbid not to speak with  tongues.

1 Corinthians 14:39

"Honky talka deo

Honky talka dei,

Honky talka deo

Honky talka dei."

Sometimes when people are going off  the tracks

we have to send them a warning  -

a honk from God.

And face the  consequences!

Hi Everybody

Owe no one anything,

except to love each other.

Romans 13:8

And it occurred to me today

that I was definitely short on.

The wife of our heart attack victim  phoned

and was unable to get through.

Well yes I did think to send a mobile  message;

but when I went to use the phone the battery was  low!

It needed recharging.

If it was me having the heart  attack

I would like to think that other  people

had their phones fully charged

and ready for the emergency.

And I was in dream world and hadn't thought  similarly for them.

Thankfully  I was able to make contact on John's  mobile.

Now both mobiles are on charge.

Hi Everybody

Suffering produces  endurance,

and endurance produces  character,

and character produces  hope.

Romans 5:3-4

"Blessed are you when they revile  and persecute you,

and say all kinds of evil against  you falsely

for My sake.

Rejoice and be exceedingly  glad,

for great is your reward in  heaven,

for so they persecuted the  prophets

who were before  you."

Jesus speaking in Matthew 5:11,12
