Theme for the month of December: Having a heart of gratitude

Published in News

Sunday 12 December:

1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 say: Rejoice always; Pray without ceasing; and in everything give thanks.

Philippians 4:6-7 says: Be anxious for nothing, but in every situation by prayer and petition with thanksgiving make your requests known to God.

Our speaker reminded us that gratitude is a decision we must all make for ourselves. Having gratitude creates a happy disposition on you and me.  To be positive is to be happy.  We should look beyond the mess and be grateful. 

Ecclesiastes 12: 13-14, says: that the whole duty of man is to glorify God. Let us stop focusing on our situation and give glory to God.  Let us recognize who God is and know that we have a lot to give God praise.

The hymn says: Count your blessings, name them one by one and you will be surprised what the Lord has done.  Everyday you wake us, make a list of your blessings.

God bless.

Celebrating fathers day

Published in Blog

Luke 15: 11-22 tells us about the father and the prodigal son.

paraphrasing .... The son said to his father "give me my bit of the pie".   The father granted him his request and gave him his share.   He went off and enjoyed himself partying, wasting his inheritance.  We need to be careful not to waste our spiritual inheritance and earthly inheritance. The son had a good time and parties with his friends while he had money.  Then the money ran out.  He sank so low and started to do a job that he did not really want to do. Finally he came to his senses.  He remembered what he had at his fathers house, and said to himself that his father have servants who are living better than him.  I will go to my father and say 'I have sinned against you'.

The father was willing and waiting for his son to come back home.  When he saw his son afar off, he ran to him, hugged him and gave him a kiss.  The father showed his love to his son even though the son was wrong in his action.  He showed true love. True love does not take account of the wrong you have done but forgives the wrong that you have done. Just as God has forgiven us of our wrongdoing, we need to show the same forgiveness to our children.  The father hugged his son, showed him love and restored him to the house.  However, the other son was not happy about it. He had access to everything in the house but did not see what he had.

As fathers we should never give up on our children.  God does not give up on us.  God is always trying to bring us back into fellowship with Him. As fathers, let us emulate God. God is our example and when we follow His example we will do the right thing.  

By Gods grace we are able to do what seems impossible. 

God bless you fathers.
