The poor

Mathew 26:11 ‘The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.’

Jesus shows that his physical life on earth was temporal, but that the poor will remain. Why is this? Why did Jesus not come to dispense with the poor and bring physical wealth to all? In this time before Good Friday we can ask what do we do for the poor? Have our consciences been overwhelmed by the massive volume of poor and suffering? The poor are a reflection of the actions of humanity. James 2:15,16 ‘Suppose there are brothers or sisters who need clothes and don’t have enough to eat. What good is there in your saying to them, “God bless you! Keep warm and eat well!” – if you don’t give them the necessities of life?’ Bring God’s love to those in need. May God bless you in this Holy week remembering Jesus’s crucifixion.

Prayer. Heavenly Father, thank you for your wonderful grace.

The lit path

John 8:12 "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

It may be very difficult for a follower of Christ who is very ill, has suffered loss or is absorbed by circumstances. The great beauty in this Scripture is that whilst we as humans want outcomes that we can see and feel really soon, Jesus offers light that carries hope, right choices, future salvation as well as the companionship of Christ. There are many paths that lead away from the path lit by Jesus, all other paths have a downhill gradient and ultimately lead to the top of a perilllous cliff shrouded in dark mist. The LORD has placed a desire for obedience to him a desire to love and be loved by him. You may find the path of Christ difficult at times, never give in or give up. Jesus is with you. Bless you.

Prayer. Blessed Father, please let there be a peaceful election in South Africa in May. Please break the drought in South Africa.

In God’s time of favour

Isaiah 49:8 ‘This is what the LORD says: "In the time of my favour I will answer you,’

The favour of God is his mighty grace, something we do not deserve…but he grants it. Why? Because he is a loving powerful God and Father, what does our LORD require? Hebrews 4:16 ‘Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.’ James 4:6 “But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Seeking grace in absolute humility – your strength LORD and not mine. The enemy wants to rob you of your focus and thinking. Look today James 1:17 ‘Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father.’ Search persistently, pray repeatedly whilst waiting patiently. Our LORD is a living God who wants your love and faith in him. Bless you.

Prayer. Blessed Father, please let there be a peaceful election in South Africa in May. Please break the drought in South Africa.

The key to God’s Kingdom

Mark 12:34 ‘And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any more questions.’

Jesus is asked by a scribe which is the greatest commandment? Mark 12:29-31 This is the first: Listen, Israel, the Lord our God is the one Lord, and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: You must love your neighbour as yourself. Blessed friends, love is not capitulation, not being weak, love carries the greatest power on earth and in the heavens. The power to save, to heal, the source of our relationship with God. You are not far from the kingdom of God. Luke 17:21 ‘For you see, the kingdom of God is in your midst.’ Bless you.

Prayer. Please bring soaking gentle rain to South Africa and dry parts of the world. Please break the drought in South Africa.

In service

Mathew 20:26 ‘….whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,

You will leave a legacy in this world, the contents of that legacy may be material, but what about a deep imprint made on others? ‘‘That person was full of love. That person brought me to my faith. That person taught me of the love of Christ.’’ Blessed friends, we cannot lead others with possessions, only the great influence of love in service. Looking at the word great, does it define you by having great possessions, great experiences in life, other or great service? You have a desire deep within you to serve, service to family and as God purposes you. Bless you.

Prayer. Blessed Father please heal South Africa and bring good leadership. Please bring soaking gentle rain to South Africa and dry parts of the world. Please break the drought in South Africa.

Acceptability in obedience to God

Mathew 5:20 ‘‘For I tell you, if your uprightness does not surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never get into the kingdom of Heaven.’’

A most fascinating Scripture, understanding what the scribes and Pharisees were about is key. Are there things that we do that we would not be out of place with the Pharisees? Knowing and being able to recite the Law/Scriptures, prayers and teachings and showing that we know and can recite Scriptures, prayers and teachings …. Is there something far more? Being religious and or a Christian on the outside to fulfill a perceived external obligation denies one of the richness of Christ within. Is there more light within you, or does the dress of external acceptability shadow a hidden world within? Jesus changes the heart, your heart needs the Light to sustain, grow and live. Looking like being right and doing right are likely opposites. May God bless you in your doing and your search.

Prayers. Holy Father, please extinguish the desire for worldly acceptance and change this into a deeper seeking of you in faith. Please bring soaking gentle rain to South Africa and dry parts of the world. Please break the drought in South Africa.

Let Dominique find you in her struggle with ill health. Strengthen David in his work.

The Light of the world

Psalm 19:8 ‘….the commandment of Yahweh is pure, light for the eyes.’

There is no doubt that there is an ongoing battle between what you see, what you think and what you believe, the thinking that follows what you see is a critical component of your faith. Blessed friends the space that darkness covers in the physical and spiritual space around and within you is revealed by light. True light comes from our LORD. John 8:12 ‘When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Our LORD wants to light up your very life, give meaning to the struggles you face and show you the purpose of your existence. Psalm 119:105 ‘Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.’ The LORD lays the path before you, let him reveal it to you. Bless you.

Prayer. Holy Father, may your light radiate out from the hearts of all your children. Please bring soaking gentle rain to South Africa and dry parts of the world. Please break the drought in South Africa.
