Have you realized you need God in your life yet?

Have you realized you need God in your life yet?


I was speaking to some people at the weekend about a man in Bible times who welcomed Jesus into his home. He was quite a ‘well to do’ guy who had made a lot of money. From the information we have, it looks as if some of his wealth was accumulated through dishonest business practice. The moral of the story was that he was not happy or satisfied despite his prosperous lifestyle.  


He needed more!


Don’t we all!


Thankfully, he realized that he needed a relationship with God and that the Lord Jesus was the way to come to God.


How do you see your life? Have you come to the point yet where you have concluded that there’s something missing? Life is empty and pointless without God.


When you turn to God from all the things that have crowded Him out and confess your need of Him (and His forgiveness) He will come. The way to God is through His Son, Jesus, who died (and rose again) to make a relationship with God possible.


I will close with the words of the Lord Jesus - ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father but by me,’ John 14:6, the Bible.

Choices have consequences

We all face choices every day, from the trivial things of what to wear and what to eat, to the choices that are life changing that come along from time to time. Some people find these choices relatively easy while others agonise over these choices for an exceptionally long time.

When I was about 10 years old, I faced a choice that sticks in my mind. Earlier that day my mother had told me that I had to be home by 8 o’clock – without fail. As I say the words, they ring in my ears some 37 years later.

6 things we cannot do without





 


Somehow this coronavirus has changed nearly everything for us - working life, family contacts, church activities, shopping patterns and much more. We are really missing some of these, but we are learning to cope and are adapting remarkably well. When things get back to (more) normal, will we still benefit from the lessons we are learning just now?

 

We are learning that there are many things we can do without, and that many other things are more important than we thought, things that perhaps we have been taking for granted. For example:

Men who want to be God v God who became man

History is replete with men who strived to be recognized as God. The ultimate power sought by many is to rule over other men and women and be worshipped by them. 

Before Jesus had reached His second birthday, He had already become the target of an assassination plot by King Herod, the ruthless and paranoid ruler of Roman-controlled Judea. Joseph and Mary, prompted by a dream from God, took the baby and fled to Egypt.

Egypt's history was one proud and glorious procession of kings spanning thirty dynasties and nearly 3,000 years. Egyptian kings--the pharaohs--were powerful figures and rich beyond imagination. They wielded wealth like a weapon, built sprawling cities and commanded huge armies.
