A Meditation on Psalm 145

In reading through Psalm 145 devotionally, I once again saw why David could burst out in glorious adoration.

Here is a man who knows His God and King personally and intimately. As he gets to verse 8, he reveals the cause of his praise … God is:
Gracious
Compassionate
Slow to anger
Rich in love

Surely these are the things to ponder as we reflect upon personal sinfulness.

And … ought not these attributes needed in our daily lives? As the Master is do gentle and tender with His beloved, ought we too not to be gentle and tender with His beloved?

Look at how verse 13b flows into verse 14!

He is trustworthy and faithful!

He exercises continual love, mercy and forgiveness to all His saints … even when they fall (sin) and repent (bowed down). He lifts (restores) them.

And again, ought these characteristics not to be ours when people sin against us and our family in Christ?

David’s adoration and praise rises out of a heart that is warm with His Lord’s attributes alive in his heart and soul.

Does that say anything to your soul today?

Shepherding the Flock – 27 March 2017

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

Please receive the flyer below, advertising what will be happening on Sunday nights for the next few weeks.

Every learner able to grasp the DVD lectures (primary and secondary), university students and especially parents are encouraged to and welcome to attend.

Christians will more and more be confronted with schools, institutions and television pushing the evolutionary label without providing a proper Biblical explanation for creation.

It is with this in mind that we are running six DVDs presented by Christian Scientists called Puting the Pieces Together.

Flyers will be available on Sunday should you like to invite friends.

Answers to Key Questions

Shepherding the Flock – 7 March 2017

Dear Beloved in Jesus 7 March 2017

  • The art of bended knee is a royal honour of the highest order.
  • Prayer is the most powerful act a creature of God can perform.

As George Whitefield went on his evangelist journeys, he took along a man who was

crippled. He was not the Crusade Director, Chief Musician or Lead Singer, His task

was when Whitefield preached to pray. Why did Whitefield’s sermons rock hearts?

This cripple man prayed!

What brought the success of tens of thousands falling into the kingdom of God as

Whitefield preached? A small crippled man who prayed!

The apostle Paul understood the need to be prayed for in relation to his preaching!

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too,

that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the

mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly,

as I should.

Colossians 4v2-4

Many years ago, a few of us would take turns in praying for souls to be saved whilst the

preacher delivered his message. The results were electrifying for the pray-er, the

preacher, the congregation and … souls were saved.

Would any one of us accept this as a challenge?
