I count it but loss, for the sake of the cross…

“But whatever former things were gains to me  [as I thought then],  these things  [once regarded as advancements in merit] I have come to consider as loss  [absolutely worthless] for the sake of Christ [and the purpose which He has given my life].” ‭‭~PHILIPPIANS‬ ‭3:7‬~ In the last 3 years out of the 33 or so years, I have been a conscious Christian I have only just started to grasp the meaning of this verse.  It was around 3 years ago that I awoke to the most important realization of my life.  The message of the gospel is life-saving and all people need saving. The mission truly became real to me.  Since that time as the urgency of the gospel message took hold, everything in my life began to change, suddenly the things that used to count seemed so unimportant, so vain, so temporal, so plastic The words of Ecclesiastes…

Will He really find faith on the earth…

Will He really find faith on the earth… “… Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”” ~Luke 18:8b~ The time is drawing nearer for His return, whether we know when it is, or not, whether it’s in 5 years or 15 years. This is a question that I have been asking myself today. Will He find faith on the earth when He comes? When I look around I see less of those who are passionate believers, and not just those that are passionate, but those that sense His return and are actively carrying out His mission, as a whole it doesn’t seem so. Perhaps I’m not mixing in the right circles? But if we could judge passion by the actions of people, we have an indication of the answer. Perhaps it might be better called the inaction of people? I have been…

Awaiting renewal….

Awaiting renewal…  “For the creation was subjected to frustration and futility, not willingly [because of some intentional fault on its part], but by the will of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will also be freed from its bondage to decay [and gain entrance] into the glorious freedom of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been moaning together as in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only this, but we too, who have the first fruits of the Spirit [a joyful indication of the blessings to come], even we groan inwardly, as we wait eagerly for [the sign of] our adoption as sons–the redemption and transformation of our body [at the resurrection].” ‭‭~Romans 8:20-23‬~ My body is in a state of decline. Funny realisation. One minute it’s that you seem to be in your prime, tip-top shape and the…

Everything we ever needed…

“Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.” ‭‭~Isaiah‬ ‭55:6‬~ He is waiting for our call. Yes he has a million other things to do, but one of them is waiting for us to call on him. The creator of the Universe set a plan in motion for us to be able to make our way back to Him. He knows what time there is left and I can imagine he’s waiting for each and every one to come. He wants none to perish but for all to find salvation for themselves. Our Father, Creator, Saviour has completely surrounded us with signs that are pointing to him. It’s isn’t hard to find him if you are seeking him. Just as he longs for us to seek him, he also seeks us! His footprints are all around us even though we may not see them yet.…

Learn your lesson well…

When I think of all the emotional upheavals that came with being a teenager and those during adolescence, not to mention the things that we were going through as we were growing up, I can tell you now for certain I would never want to go through all of that again. Do you remember that ‘heart pain’ that you felt deep on the inside, the ankst, the insecurity and confusion? Everything felt so vital, but yet it was only a piece in the puzzle. At around that age I think there must be some chemical or hormone that is being released inside you that elevates every emotion to a heightened sense. From the time that these difficult lessons start is the beginning of a major part of the making of who you will be. You begin to sense different things in your life causing you pain, and perhaps they shouldn’t,…
