Turn up

  |  0 Comments

Just by turning up and being there, you bring the presence of God.

When thoughts pop into my head like “What’s the point of you going?”, “What on earth can you do?” or “They don’t want to see you now”, I turn to the great truths that God is with me, that I am a temple of the Holy Spirit, that I have one with me who can bind up the broken hearted and that God loves to minister to us through each other.

The Holy Spirit…

  |  0 Comments

The Holy Spirit is the Christian’s batteries, coach, guide, prompt and power all rolled into one. What Jesus said to his disciples in Acts 1:3 before he left was basically like the old credit card slogan “Don’t leave home without it”. With the Spirit we have purchasing power to acquire territory for the kingdom of heaven.

No red flag

  |  0 Comments

Sometimes church history and modern day experience makes it look like the red flag has been waved, suspending the race and forcing everyone to cruise slowly and carefully around the track without overtaking, but Jesus has done no such thing. The baptism of fire that John the Baptist talked about was not just for those first century Christians at the front of the queue. The source of fire that came down on them has not been extinguished but has burnt a glorious trail through history, right up to the present day. The race is very much still on!

Because you’re worth it

  |  0 Comments

Have you seen those make-up adverts with the slogan “Because you’re worth it”? They play on our need to be valued and loved. Deep down, though, we all know that no matter how many times a multinational cosmetic company says, “You’re worth it”, the feeling wipes off with the make-up and it is plain old us again. The truth is we won’t know true love, value, or worth until we recognise what Jesus did for us on the cross.

God understands suffering

  |  0 Comments

One thing we can say from all this (description of the agony of crucifixion) is that God knows what it is like to suffer and endure the most excruciating agony. He knows what it’s like to be pinned down and paralyzed. In times of sickness, we can draw strength from knowing that God knows what we are experiencing because He has gone through it Himself.

The cross as a spiritual slingshot

  |  0 Comments

When NASA scientists want to accelerate a space craft without expending fuel, they perform a manoeuvre called a “slingshot”. They fly the space craft close to a planet and let the gravitational pull increase its speed. The interstellar craft hurtles towards the planet and is briefly pulled around in a partial orbit before being catapulted back out into space at incredible speed. The cross is the spiritual mass around which God’s purpose on creation slingshots around.

Spiritual hygeine

  |  0 Comments

What is your spiritual hygiene like? What do you smell like in the Spirit? Is there whiff of fear or a whiff of faith about you? Is there a stink of gossip or a fragrance of prayer? It would probably be going too far to ask if you are wearing Holy Spirit aftershave or perfume, but I’m sure you get the point!

Authority

  |  0 Comments

If the Centurion told a soldier to “Go” he would go. If he told him to “Come”, he would come. There would be no pause or questioning. The soldier would not think about it he would just do it. Failure to obey would result in swift and harsh punishment, witnessed by the whole unit.
But think about it. In front of the Centurion are a large number of strong men who could easily over-empower him. He’s got one wooden stick, and they’ve got hundreds of sharp, shiny metal swords. Why do they go where he tells them to. Why do the instantly and unquestioningly obey him in everything? It’s not because of his own power, it’s because he is a man under authority.
