Great Sermons Are Not Preached, They Are Lived!

I once heard, “Great sermons are not preached, they are lived.”

How challenging it is for us to read our Bibles every morning, and to absorb the teachings contained therein, and to put these powerful teachings into practice.

Let’s be completely honest about this; it’s very tough being a Christian and giving our life to Christ when we inhabit a body that is being tempted to sin!

That is why, in my humble opinion, it is absolutely essential that we spend as much time as possible each morning with our Heavenly Father, asking Him to prepare us for the day ahead and to help us and protect us from all the sinful opportunities being offered to us by Satan.

I know sometimes it’s hard to spend time with Jesus first thing in the morning.

But He knows what each day holds for us, and He longs to prepare us for every single problem He sees coming our way during the day.

Let’s accept His invitation to sit with Him. Let’s listen to Him intently. And let’s ask Him to intervene before our natural reactions to events betray our best intentions.

With many peaceful blessings

Pentecost Sunday

Pentecost Sunday

The apostles were in the middle of their Pentecostal feast when suddenly a loud sound, like a fierce wind, filled their ears.
 
All the apostles felt alive and full of energy, totally revitalized, and as they looked at each other in amazement and wonderment, they saw that every apostle had a tiny flame hovering over their head.
 
“The Holy Spirit has arrived”, they exclaimed and they were even more astonished to discover that they were all speaking in different languages.
They all felt as though they had unlimited energy, courtesy of the Holy Spirit, and they ran excitedly out into the nearby streets giving thanks to God in many different languages.
 
Some were preaching about God in Greek; whilst others were preaching about Jesus in Latin. And some were praising the Holy Spirit in Arabic.
 
It was the tradition that many people from the surrounding countries visited Jerusalem at the time of Pentecost.
 
And when these people from foreign lands heard the apostles preaching with the mighty power of the Holy Spirit, they marvelled, one to another:
“These men are only from the area of Galilee. So how is it that they can speak our language fluently?”
 
But some people just laughed and made fun out of the apostles by saying that they were only drunk!
 
But when they heard Peter preaching everyone felt an emotional stirring because of his vibrant passion.
 
“Most certainly we are not drunk, far from it”, Peter joked. “We are followers of Jesus of Nazareth. He has come back from being dead. We have seen him with our own eyes!
 
And today the Holy Spirit has descended upon us, which is why you are able to understand what we are saying in your own language.”
 
And Peter continued, “Those of you who are truly sorry for all the sins that you have committed may receive God’s blessing today. Will you join us?”
 
And that very day, following Peter’s preaching and teaching more than 3,000 people were baptized and became followers of Jesus.
 
Praise be the Lord. Hallelujah

Mathama Gandhi and Jeremy Corbyn

I wonder how many people are aware that Jeremy Corbyn received The Gandhi Foundation International Peace Award on November 26th, 2013.

I do not consider myself a party political person, as I am very much aware that all the major political parties have their strengths and weaknesses, but I would respectfully invite you read Jeremy Corbyn’s Acceptance Speech of the Gandhi Award which you can read by going to:-

https://gandhifoundation.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/pagandhijcspeechnov26th2013.pdf

The Trustees of The Gandhi Foundation agreed to offer him their International Peace Award in recognition of his consistent efforts over a 30 year Parliamentary career to uphold the Gandhian values of social justice and non‐violence.

Besides being a popular and hard‐working constituency MP he has made time to speak and write extensively in support of human rights at home and world‐wide.

His committed opposition to neocolonial wars and to nuclear weapons has repeatedly shown the lack of truth in the arguments of those who have opposed him.

I respectfully forward this information to you as I believe that it might prove of interest to you.

We are excited to announce the launch of the Mission to Wales: a joint initiative between New Wine Cymru and The Turning team from Reading, UK.

From Thurs 6  – Sat 15 July 2017 there is going to be Mission throughout the length and breadth of Wales!

On each day of the Mission there will be people out on the streets for about an hour in towns and cities cross Wales.

With training happening in each of the New Wine Cymru regions and then rolled out in surrounding towns and cities, we are planning to see Missions going on, all at the same time, in multiple locations across the whole of Wales.

This is the beginning of a plan over the coming years to roll out Mission across every town, city, village and community in Wales.

Praying for the Manchester Explosion Victims

Please pray for the 22 people killed and the 59 injured after an explosion at Manchester Arena at the end of a concert by Ariana Grande.

The police are treating the explosion as a terrorist attack.

Pray too for the many families and friends of those either killed or injured at the concert and for those who were present at the concert and, although physically unhurt, who are suffering from the traumas of the bomb blast.

Malcolm Turnbull, the Australian Prime Minister said:-

“This incident, this attack, is especially vile especially criminal, especially horrific because it appears to have been deliberately directed at teenagers. This is an attack on innocence. Surely there is no crime more reprehensible than the murder of children. This is a direct and brutal attack on young people everywhere, on freedom everywhere.”

Please join me in praying for all the victims of this horrendous explosion.

With many peaceful blessings
