Check this out........totally inspired. 


 
 

It's great to see men this inspired about  their....  faith in God.


 
The next time you feel like God cannot use you, just remember:-
  • Noah was a drunk
  • Abraham was too old
  • Isaac was a daydreamer
  • Jacob was a liar
  • Leah was ugly
  • Joseph was abused
  • Moses had a stuttering problem
  • Gideon was afraid
  • Samson was a womaniser
  • Rahab was a prostitute
  • Jeremiah and Timothy were too young
  • David had an affair and was a murderer
  • Elijah was suicidal
  • Isaiah preached naked
  • Jonah ran from God
  • Naomi was a widow
  • Peter denied Christ
  • The disciples fell asleep while praying
  • Martha worried about everything
  • The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once
  • Zaccheus was too small
  • Paul was too religious
  • Timothy had an ulcer
  • and Lazarus was dead
Perhaps God's ability to forgive us is greater than we think.

This list of bible characters gives a whole new prospective on the bible verse:-

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." 1 Phillipians Ch. 4 verse 13.

Serve God even if you are working through your short comings. God will do the rest.

God bless you.

I have seen many friends over the years lose out in life because they could not control their anger. You see, the problem with anger is that it can consume you and leave you bitter. Anger is very self indulgent and ultimately it is self destructive. The word of God in the book of Proverbs Ch 15 v 1 says "A  soft  answer turneth away wrath, but grievious words stir up anger". Now here is a  great starting place to help control that angry moment.
 
Firstly, you have to control that tongue. Start by answering other angry people softly and don't bite on the bait. Watch something extraordinary happen. The more you answer them softly, the more likely it will be that they will run out of steam.

Now, this will take some time and a lot of practise before answering softly becomes a habit. But the great thing is that when it does, you will be pleased with the way it affects your life, relationships and future prospects. Get rid of that anger and make place for God's love. His special supernatural love is the real answer to controlling anger. The perfect solution to a defeatable problem.   

Be blessed - God's way!

Have you ever asked yourself the question, '"How blessed am I?". It may seem like a strange question, but a very important one, none the less. Sometimes we measure our success by the number of items we possess or the number of people we know. However, God sees things from a different prospective. In God's eyes, we start to be counted as being blessed people when we avoid bad counsel and bad company and start to focus on Him. This is because He knows that our environment so easily affects our behaviour. This can be seem in the scripture Psalm 1 vs 1 - 6.

God wants us to love his word and mediate on it constantly. The reward will be fruitfulness in life, abundance and deep rooted stability in Him. God wants to give us something more valuable than material things. He wants to give us something, oh so much greater!..........His unconditional divine love - (Agape).
 Be blessed, God's way.
 
As a pastor, people are always asking me questions about resources. "What type of bible should I get?" or "What books can you recommend I should be reading?" or "Where can I go to get the type of christian products I need?". Some of my really bold friends will just ask me a 'point blank' question. "Can't you just bring me a selection of books I can choose from?"
Well now I can. By just visiting www.agapegifts.co.uk. There are a selection of christian products that I have choosen that will aid your christian growth. There is something for everyones taste. Over time, I will add more of my suggestions. For now, there is plenty to choose from. So, go ahead and browse the content menu.
