The Surpassing Greatness

I made mention on Sunday of the life Paul lived before he met Christ on the road to Damascus. His life would have been in many ways very well respected and secure. He was a prominent Pharisee, a zealous Hebrew of Hebrews (Phil 3:5). Though the Pharisees get a very bad press these days, they…

Running Well, Fighting Hard

It might not feel it right now (following Scotland’s departure from the Euro’s) but it’s a great time to be a sports fan. Currently we have the Euro’s and the Copa America for football fans. Soon Wimbledon and the Tour de France, and then before we know it the Olympic Games will be broadcasting from…

All sufficient grace

“In order to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”’ 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 NLT Mark…

The Honey and the Pears- ‘Such was my heart’

I was saddened recently by what I read on a friend’s Facebook feed. A year ago he had invested in two beehives. Following a year of hard-work, providing all that the bees needed to thrive and flourish, he was rewarded with a great harvest of honey for expectant friends and family. My friend returned to…

One thing is Needful

Covid has brought its own challenges and sorrows to each of us since its arrival. For us as a family, living under a different local authority and health board from many of our loved ones has been hard. Recently, we’ve been allowed to see them for a very limited number of ‘essential’ reasons. This begs…

The Discipline of Giving

I have chosen to call this Spiritual Discipline the ‘Discipline of Giving’ but I could have called it the ‘Discipline of Investing’ or the ‘Discipline of Stewardship.’ All that we have is given to us by God. Yes, we may have worked hard to earn our salary and to buy our possessions, but it is…

Spiritual Disciplines 4- Service

“If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.” Mark 9:35 “Most of us know we will never be the greatest; just don’t let us be the least. Gathered at the Passover feast, the disciples were keenly aware that someone needed to wash the others’ feet. The…

Spiritual Disciplines 3- Worship

We’ve been looking lately at some of the Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian life, some of the ways “we can place ourselves in the path of God’s grace and seek Him much as Bartimaeus and Zacchaeus placed themselves in Jesus’ path and sought Him.” Like prayer and Bible study, worship is of the utmost importance…

Spiritual Disciplines 2- Scripture

Donald Whitney in his Book on the Spiritual Disciplines says: “Spiritual Disciplines are the God-given means we are to use in the Spirit-filled pursuit of Godliness. Godly people are discipled people. It has always been so.” However lest we think that spiritual growth is about our determination and resolve, Whitney goes on to remind us…
