Bible Book = ‘matthew’
Friends, let’s be disciples and not the crowd. Let’s hear these words of Jesus, and put them into practice – and so build our life on solid rock.
Jesus is building his church – even here, in Amington! – and nothing, not even a pandemic, can stop him.
How do we become more like Jesus, and live the life we’ve always wanted? The answer is: gardening.
My prayer is that we might all make space for Jesus this Christmas - and then in January, in February and beyond.
The church isnâ€™t a palace for the perfect, itâ€™s a hospital for sinners. And God forgives all those who truly repent - which is not the same as saying ‘anything goes’.
Christians need a biblical attitude: neither judgemental, nor ‘anything goes’, but encouraging and warning one another with humility and love.
James puts it like this: do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
Mature Christians meet trials with perseverance, and meet doubt with wisdom.
Let us listen to James, do what he says, and learn to be devoted to Jesus with all our hearts
Christian giving is not about fundraising or buying Godâ€™s favour. It is a way of responding (in secret) to God’s generosity to us - storing up the true treasure of a generous and godly life.
