Luke 18:14
For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted

Have you been around a person who only thinks about themselves and the things they have done? That's not humility. Placing ourselves above others is the opposite of what God has called us to do. When we show humility we don't have to worry about where we will end up. God will make sure we are exalted.

1 John 4:8
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love

There are many ways that we fan get to know God. We can spend time in His Word, we can pray, we can serve. However, if we do all these things but we still don't have love in our lives, then we really don't know God at all. If we truly know Him, we know that showing love reflects Him

2 Corinthians 13:14
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ....be with you all


Grace is what we've been offered in Jesus. His grace has given us things that we haven't earned and don't even deserve but because of His great love for us, that grace is ours. We carry that grace with us. In every situation and every choice we make, His grace is always there.

As we grow in our faith, it's like growing physically. We start out young, like a child, as we learn. But the more we get to know Him, the more we grow. Our spiritual maturity increases the closer that we get to Jesus. Spend time with Him so that you will grow.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

Everything in the world will pass away, and nothing lasts forever. When we see the things we love slipping from our grasp we can have confidence that one thing will always remain. His love will never fail us. We can count on His great love to be lasting in our life

Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres

Have you ever wanted to give up? Maybe there's something you are working towards that is a lot of work and isn't always easy - keep on going. That's perseverance. The Bible says love is like that too. It is there for the long haul, won't give up but be right with us as we go through our journey. Show the kind of love that never gives up!

(Love) does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Have you ever held a grudge against someone? It can be easy to keep records when we've been hurt and wounded by other people. We like to make a list and refer back. but love wipes those records clean and makes a fresh start. It forgives and moves on. That's the love God wants us to show.

Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud


Love is many things, but there are also things that love is not. Love isn't being jealous of others and only promoting yourself. It doesn't brag or act proudly. Love is showing humility, full of patience and kindness towards other people. Always strive to be an example of what love is, not what love isn't.

We can be giving to others, making sacrifices to those around us, but if it's not done out of love, it is of no gain to us. We can't store up our works and our good deeds. The blessing comes from our ability to do everything in love.

We've all listened to sounds that we find annoying. Maybe a loud drum or a frequency that isn't right? The Bible says that if we don't have love, we are like noise that doesn't make any sense. Loving others produces a sweet sound that echoes through our lives.

Romans 13:9-10
The (ten) commandments.....and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' Love does not harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

It only seems fitting that if we have been offered incredible love through Jesus, we ourselves should be carriers of that love. The Bible says that all the commands are summed up in one - loving other people. Show His love today.

Situations can confuse us and leave us asking God difficult questions. This is when we must press in, and trust in God and His perfect plan for all our seasons. When you feel like your season is scattered and you need His guidance, ask Him to be present in your decisions and pathways.

And the second (commandment) is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.

After you have determined to love God with everything that you have, the next command is to love those around you. Even more than you love yourself! That's not always easy. When you put others first, you are truly walking in the purpose that God has set before you. Love God

Matthew 22:36-38
Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law? Jesus replied, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment


There are many different instructions and commandments throughout Scripture, but love is at the top of them all. Why? Because then everything you do will flow from that love. Love Him first and foremost and let the rest follow

Matthew 7:12
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

Most of us can recall a time when we have been treaded badly. The temptation is, usually, not to respond with love. What if we decided to treat others the way that we would want them to treat us - no matter how they treated us? That kind of love could change the world!

Psalm 119:1-2
Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord. Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts.


There is a joy that comes from walking with the Lord. Instructions are not meant to restrict His relationship with us. Instead, as we seek Him and look to Him for guidance, we become people of integrity. There is a joy that comes when we follow His perfect plan.

Exodus 20:15
You shall not steal

Have you ever wanted to take something that wasn't yours? Maybe an item from a store, or a friend's belonging? Stealing a possession is one of the commands from God that He felt important enough to include in the Ten Commandments. This is upheld in our culture today, where our society imposes punishments for those who steal from others, another rule that God created for our own well-being.

Exodus 20:13 (NIV)
You shall not murder

Violence is never the answer or the solution to any problem. In our current culture we see disregard for life all around us, yet we know that God created life from the very beginning and that life is valuable and carries much worth. This command reinforces that no person should take life away from another.

Honor was an important trait in the Old Testament, especially when it came to your family. This command shows this importance, that respect was valued in family relationship. Honoring your mother and father mattered to God, so He made it a command. Respecting and treating our parents well is what God asks of us.

Exodus 20:8
Remember the Sabbath day to keeping it holy


We appreciate when we have a day to rest. God even took a day to rest when He first created the world. The Sabbath was an important day each week for His people to stop what they were doing, and have a day to focus on Him. This is an important command for all of us to follow. To take a day of Sabbath is to honor the Lord.

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Moses knew the importance of passing down faith and that sharing the story of what God had done was crucial. We can share the goodness of God through our story - God's place in it matters.

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, 'Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.'


The Magi searched with much anticipation looking for the one that had been promised. When they found Him, their response was to worship. We worship in the same response.

But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God's love.


Those who do not know Jesus Christ will continue with their normal lives after today, without any assurance of eternal life. Yet the love of God that we experience through Christ continues long after Christmas Day is over. Trust Him to pour more of His love into your life, so that all year you will overflow with the love of Jesus.

We love because he first loved us.

The Bible tells us that the gift of the Messiah was a sign of the magnitude of God's love for us - for God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son. The impact of Jesus' life, death and resurrection is a transformed life for all who place their faith in Him. And once Jesus has poured His love into us, we are called to love others with His unconditional love. How can you do that over the next week or so? As you have experienced His love, pour that love out to someone else.

The follower of Jesus should invest in things that will last into eternity. Start by ensuring you are in the very centre of God's will for your life - and when you do, all you do will last for eternity.

John 12:23-24
Jesus replied, 'The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.


Their hopes dashed, the death of Jesus must have been the worst moment of the disciples' lives. Yet repeatedly, Jesus told them about what lay ahead. His death and resurrection would lead to something far greater - the establishment of His Kingdom and salvation of millions. he does the same in our lives. What may look like the worst things that could happen leads to greater blessings than we could ever imagine. Trust him.

John 7:16-17
Jesus answered, 'My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me. Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.


People are always searching for the newest technology or idea. In this day of social networking, the ability for someone to communicate new ideas has become much easier. The challenge is that trends come and go. Despite this innovation, there remain timeless truths that are too easily ignored. The truths of God are revealed in, and through, Jesus Christ. Your life will change if you will study and believe them.

John 5:19
Jesus gave them this answer: "Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself, he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.'


Jesus was fully human so that He could relate to us and show us how we can be the people that God desires us to be. He showed His disciples, and us, how it is possible to walk closely with god so that He can work His power in and through us. This should be the goal of every follower of Jesus. How are you deepening your relationship with God today?

John 1:14
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.


John calls Jesus 'The Word' - Logos in Greek. He is the living embodiment of all that He has spoken - He is truth. And, in coming to earth, He has revealed the glory and truth of the Triune God. How has He spoken into your life today as you have put your trust in Him?

Luke 18:16-17
But Jesus called the children to him and said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.


Children have a special place in Jesus' heart and in the Kingdom. In the Roman world, children were often seen as a nuisance and were easily disregarded. Jesus changes all of that. His ides were radical. Not only did He place great value on children, He also told adults who were full of pride that in order to enter His Kingdom they had to become like children - and so do we.

Luke 15:20
So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him.


What do you think the word 'prodigal' means? Most think it means wayward or wild living. It actually means 'spending money or resources freely and recklessly, wastefully extravagant.' So, it wasn't just the son who was prodigal, it was the father as well, who puts his ring on this son, his best robe and throws him a party. That is how much God loves you. If you will return to Him, He will freely and with great extravagance pour out His love and blessings on you.

Just continue praying for my children.
Their names:
Jonathan (and his fiance, Echo)
Christopher (and his fiance, Lauren)
Samuel
And Naomi - Naomi has surrendered her heart to the Lord, but she is certainly under attack by Satan.
