"But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:36-37)

Jesus, our Master, took the use of words seriously. From the Gospel accounts, Jesus’ words encouraged others gently towards paths of right living. He spoke words of love, kindness, rebuke, forgiveness, encouragement and blessing upon and to others! Jesus is to be our guide and Master in the use of thoughts and words. As part of our living as followers of Jesus, this is something which has the capability of affecting every person on the planet.

Come and listen to the podcast to find out more about Jesus, our use of words and what that can mean for you and all those we interact with.

When Jesus had finished these parables, he moved on from there. Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked.  “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? " (Luke 2:42-52)

Jesus is the ultimate wise man! As we read the Gospels, we see that when Jesus spoke words, people were amazed! They were astounded that He spoke with wisdom, elegance and yet with authority. They had never heard anyone speak like He did - with both grace and authority. The same is true today, if we are listening. That is why we read the Bible to find out what He would say to us. That is why we seek to hear Him speak to us and why we speak to Him. Jesus’ wisdom meaning I can ask Him for advice and seek His imagination to solve problems!

Come and listen to the podcast to find out more about the wisdom of Jesus and what that can mean for you.

“ Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name’s sake." (Romans 1:1-5)

As I reflect upon Jesus Christ, as given to us throughout the Bible, and the effect he has had on my own life, I can ecstatically exclaim that Jesus is unique – totally, completely and utterly unique! Never before and never to be repeated again – ever! Jesus Christ is the standout person from all of history! In all of human history, Jesus Christ is incomparable!

Come and listen to the podcast to find out a little bit more of Jesus’ uniqueness and the effect that He can have upon you and your life.

“As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.
“Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.”
Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him. " (Matthew 20:29-34)

As I reflect upon the life of Jesus as given to us through the Gospels, I see that in his interaction with people, he exhibits his innate loveliness. In this passage of Scripture from Matthew, we see how Jesus exhibited his loveliness to those two men, through an act of compassion and mercy! Obediently loving God by loving others! Jesus gave those two men great joy in receiving their sight and enabled them to overcome the rejection by the crowd! Those two men could testify that Jesus is altogether lovely and lovely altogether! Jesus is beyond compare for the things He has done and the things He will do - for you and I.

Listen to the podcast to hear more about the loveliness and joy of Jesus. Jesus’ loveliness means you and I can have His incomparable inner joy when we feel defeated, dejected and discouraged. Jesus oozes loveliness! I know that is what he does for me over and over again, praise be to his name!

“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them." (John 14:21)

Yesterday we looked at responding to God's love. Part of that response is that as a Christian, if you are one, you are to be a little Jesus! In your local communities, wherever you happen to live, work, study or be! you are to live a life of obedience, of and to, Jesus Christ! For you are being transformed by the Holy Spirit who lives inside you! you are to be totally and willingly obedient to Him!

This is an obedience borne from willingly loving God and loving others and not an obedience borne out of some kind of slavish duty or ritual. Imagine what the world would be like if all Christians were lovingly obedient like that!  Listen to the podcast to hear more about the how, what, why and where of the Christian being obedient to the love of God.

"If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them." (1 John 4:15-16)

God's love in the Bible is seen as unfailing, everlasting, intimate, sacrificial, unbreakable, all-conquering, personal, great, immeasurable and all-knowing. This is seen supremely in the Cross of Jesus Christ, when He died for the sins of the world. Supreme love overcoming all that is not love. Even when great acts of evil are committed in the world, such as the slaughter of innocents, love is all around. Love continues despite such acts.

How are Christians to respond to this love of God? Listen to the podcast to hear more about the how, what, why and where of the Christian responding to the love of God.

G'day! The world is in love, with love! Love sells everything! But what, or rather, who, started love? God did! The Bible tells the story of this God of love and we are going to very briefly in our time together talk about this great subject! Perhaps more books are written about the love of God than anything else! How is God love?

"LORD, give me your unfailing love, the salvation that you promised me." (Psalm 119:41)

Long ago the LORD said to Israel: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself. (Jeremiah 31:3)

"Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them." (John 14:21)

As Christians, we proclaim God is love! Today we briefly explore how God is love, what kind of love this is and how this love is seen! What does that mean for us as Christians today? Listen to the podcast to hear more about this amazing aspect of God and its impact on your life and the world around you.

G'day! Yesterday, we looked at the Christian developing meekness. Today we look at an aspect of that.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

Are not those amazing words? Not just anybody could say them. If the person who said them couldn’t actually fulfil that promise, that would be one of the biggest hoaxes in all of history. But Jesus Christ the man who said those words is no hoax and he is able to fulfil those words and live up to the promises he makes. He is totally trustworthy. To rely on Jesus and ask Him for help in all things is to walk by faith and with humility. True independence and freedom comes from being dependent on Jesus Christ and not being held back by anything or anyone else, such as family and our own wealth and possessions.

Listen to the podcast to hear more about this amazing aspect of Jesus Christ, being confident that He is able to help you in every situation you face.

G'day! Yesterday, we looked at serving God where ever you are with a clear conscience. How did you get on with doing it? Today we look at what is to be another aspect of the Christian character to be developed - meekness!

Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth. (Numbers 12:3)

 

23 Then he (Jesus) said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. 25 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? (Luke 9:23-25)

What is a meekness? Isn't meekness simply weakness? How is your conscience at the moment? How does the Holy Spirit use your conscience for God's glory and honour? Come on in, listen/download the Podcast to find out more about this innate part of every person!
