My Baptism - June 2009

This was the beginning of a journey that has changed my life...

My Baptism - June 2009

This is the only photo I have of my baptism that took place on 28th June 2009 at Woodside Leisure Centre.  I wasn't until the end of 2010 when I read these ten sermons about baptism did I begin to fully realise the significance and importance of what Liz and I had done.

The significant shift came after I had found a web site and read ten sermons about baptism.  I was so taken with these sermons, that I took each of the ten sermons by Rev Eric H.H. Chang, reformatted them and put them in to a single document. I assure you, if you have already been baptised or are planning to, this document is a must read. Click here to download.

After reading all the Left Behind Series, I read the authors book on bible study

how to study the bible for yourself

I seemed to have a bit of a block when it came to actually studying the Bible.  

I had read it twice, cover to cover and was becoming familiar with it, knowing where certain scripture was and even how to apply it in my life, but getting to the point of actually wanting to study the Bible seemed to be something a bit distant.  

Until I read the twelve Left Behind books.

In June 2013 I purchased the book How to Study the Bible for Yourself - All I can say is WOW...

Reading one book turned in to twelve un-put-downable books

I was once told by a grown-up Christian that the last book in the Bible - Revelation, was nonsense and written by someone who had "lost their marbles".  These books have become my biggest eye-opener.

A Holiday Book to a New Realisation of Gods Word

Front Cover Images of Chronicle of Brothers

It sometimes takes, what seems to be pure fiction, for someone (me) to realise how amazing and utterly astounding this life really is and how dependent we are (and should be) on God.  Wendy Alec has presented our relationship with God from the beginning of time to the present day in such a way that it should be taught in Sunday school.

I know the plans I have for you and those plans are to prosper you not harm you and to give you a future filled with hope (Jeremiah 29:11)

We are told by God to share our testimonies with each other and by doing so, it has a number of affects.

  • It proclaims Gods work in our lives
  • It gives God the glory
  • It helps existing and new believers see what God does/is doing

To be in a position to be able to testify to Gods love and his awesome power is nothing short of amazing.

Read my amazing testimony and decide for yourself...

was jesus poor? are you serious!

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

This statement is not referring to Jesus being poor.  In fact, he was a craftsman and small businessman before he started His Ministry.  Jesus became poor and took on the curse of poverty when He was crucified on the cross, so that we might become rich both financially and spiritually.  In 2 Corinthians 9:8 it says And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Agreed, He became poor when God became Man, however, the relevance is that, through us having provision of all things we can excel at doing good works for God.

change is more difficult if we do it for our own reasons and not Gods

There are a few basic precepts that we've got to get to grips with.
 
The great ideas we get from time to time are not our own thoughts but rather those provided by the Holy Spirit.  Never forget, God has billions of clever ways to make things happen, from setting up businesses to, well, you think about it, everything you can imagine and more.
 
God places those desires in our hearts, waiting for us to call them into being through our prayers and actions.  "I want" never comes in to the equation.  Only what He wants.

unbelief affects everyone

on Sunday, 21 October 2012. Posted in Blog

And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid hands on a few sick folk and healed them. And Jesus marvelled because of their unbelief - Mark 6:5-6 (KJV)

It's only a small piece of scripture, but it holds another important key to the power and authority that has been placed in our midst.
 
Think about it.  Here was Jesus, the King of Kings, the author of our universe, unable to do any great works because of the unbelief of the people in His village.  Even Jesus couldn't perform as He wanted to or expected to because of the lack of faith in the people around Him.
 

go on, witness then!

Jesus did not come to bring peace but came with a sword - Matt 10:34

We meet all sorts of people throughout our working week, some new and some old friends.  If we are following the instructions from The Lord, we will be a witness to our faith, give our testimony and tell people how amazing God is.  Fortunately we don't have the responsibility of convicting people we come in to contact with, that's the job of the Holy Spirit.
 
But why is it so important and what's with the sword?
